THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO

I have been dubbing and watching alot of THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO lately! O'LAFFERTY is a leprechaun in one of the episodes. What a GREAT series. Thought I would share one of the coloring books from one of the box sets

THE BERMUDA DEPTHS

Found my copy of the RANKIN/BASS film THE BERMUDA DEPTHS starring BURL IVES (Seen here on the set with Todd Rankin). What an erie film. I can see why it has built such a cult following over the years. I get many requests for copies of the film!

BERNARD COWAN

BERNARD COWAN was a VERY important part of the RANKIN/BASS History! He directed all of those wonderful voice actors in CANADA on TALES OF THE WIZARD OF OZ, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO, RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, etc. He also narrated THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO and did many incidenatal voices. You may remember his voice as the narrator on the 1966 MARVEL CARTOONS!

CD #1 and 3 back on EBAY due to POPULAR DEMAND!


Due to POPULAR DEMAND, I put the RANKIN/BASS Collector's CDs #1 and #3 back up on EBAY for a very limited time. CD #1 has the MISER BROS songs on it PLUS lots of RARE stuff. CD #3 has the soundtracks to 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS & CRICKET ON THE HEARTH starring DANNY THOMAS & MARLO THOMAS!
