Many ask me for the classic CHICAGO KID'S TV shorts: HARDROCK, COCO, & JOE: THE THREE LITTLE DWARVES & SUZY SNOWFLAKE (Centaur Productions) & FROSTY THE SNOWMAN (UPA). Some think RANKIN/BASS Produced them. The CENTAUR works were actually animated by WAH MING CHANG who worked on all the GEORGE PAL stuff and later designed some of the devices on TV's STAR TREK. Well now, I am making a VHS available directly from the master tapes. Some remember watching these on WGN-TV on GARFIELD GOOSE & FRIENDS, THE RAY RAYNER SHOW and even BOZO'S CIRCUS. Christmas is not Christmas without seeing these again! Enjoy!
Listed this autographed MAD MONSTER PARTY postcard from 1996 on EBAY. It is signed by musical composer MAURY LAWS and features FRANK FRAZETTA artwork on the back and two beautiful color images from the film on the front. It was printed to promote my book THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO
Yes...RANKIN/BASS did animate the commercials x 3 during the 1964 Broadcast of RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER on the GENERAL ELECTRIC FANTASY HOUR. Have gotten alot of questions about my RUDOLPH Collector's pack on EBAY! These commercials were my holy grail during the research I did for my RANKIN/BASS books! RANKIN/BASS Eye candy!
