SHIRLEY TEMPLE BLACK R.I.P.
Arthur Rankin wanted to do a series in ANIMAGIC on Shirley and Shirley wanted to do it as well...something happened with her agent that nixed the deal. Arthur's father appeared in Shirley Temple films and this series would have finally seen Shirley as Dorothy in THE WIZARD OF OZ :)

I have helped many high profile newspapers with their obituaries on Mr. Arthur Rankin, Jr. this past week.
I hope I am wrong, but I haven't seen one single piece in the news media (with the exception of the online YAHOO! piece) since his passing January 30th. If you have seen something in your local news, please let me know. The news will talk all day and night about heroin and Justin Bieber egging a house BUT when it comes to the producer of the longest-running, highest rated TV special of all-time and many other memorable films, I see and hear nothing. Shameful!
