Here is a GREAT early SHAG painting that our friend JOSH AGLE shared with the world of RANKIN/BASS! He did it for a CHRISTMAS card for his wife. VERY COOL! Many have been e-mailing about the WARNER BROTHERS Christmas DVDs that we mentioned a while back at www.rankinbass.com WARNER BROTHERS was talking about a HOLIDAY DVD box set that included THE LIFE & ADVENTURES OF SANTA CLAUS and others BUT I have heard nothing for the past year and fear they dropped the ball once again. They were talking about doing a DOCUMENTARY with ARTHUR RANKIN, JR. and JULES BASS, which is long overdue too! Hopefully someone will brighten up over there and it will still happen. CRICKET ON THE HEARTH did come out on DVD this month starring DANNY THOMAS and MARLO THOMAS ! CLASSIC MEDIA/SONY WONDER issued it. EXTRAS on these DVDs is a no brainer BUT absent from their releases?
