We have been getting many, many requests for THE HOBBIT soundtrack and sheet music! People love it!
I picked up an extra set of the 1966 FILMATION SUPERMAN cartoons today for a friend on DVD! I just watched some and really love those!

I am forever enjoying my BATMAN 1966 collection and the sensational BLU RAY of the 1966 feature film!


HORNET STING...Check!

I have been enjoying my GREEN HORNET collection and the prestine episodes from ME TV and ME TOO! Hopefully they will release the series in BLU RAY this December when the film comes out!

ART CLOKEY R.I.P.

We were sorry to hear of Art's passing! Our friend David Scheve was working on projects with Art over the past several years. He was certainly a giant in the world of Stop-motion animation.

I love his DAVEY & GOLIATH series and just recently watched the Christmas special LOST & FOUND. Our friend Dick Beals was the voice of DAVEY and Hal Smith (OTIS CAMBELL from THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW) did the voice of GOLIATH and other characters.
