If you don't have this DVD in your RANKIN/BASS collection...get it soon! The actual title of this special is THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF DANNY KAYE: THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES but CLASSIC MEDIA was afraid of being sued by the KAYE estate, so they didn't use the title or the familiar ANIMAGIC image of DANNY on the cover....hence the poor sales. This DVD has a GREAT 8 minute original documentary film made by RANKIN/BASS to promote the series THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF DANNY KAYE and features both ARTHUR and JULES directing Danny, working in the MOM studio at the puppet set and some incredible JACK DAVIS Production art! It also features MAURY LAWS conducting in the studio with DANNY and ALLEN SWIFT. Some AMAZING stuff! The special is also RARE and looks amazing as well!
