I actually Co-Produced this CD with RHINO and WARNER BROTHERS MUSIC. It is available at a GREAT price at AMAZON. Has a nice booklet with original LP artwork too. The original LPs were extremely RARE and sought after. JUNE FORAY does the voice of KAREN on the FROSTY THE SNOWMAN Soundtrack!

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
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 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!
A BIG THANK YOU goes out to MARK SYKORA! It has been about 10 years since we started http://www.rankinbass.com/ and we could not have done it without all of Mark's hardwork! His wife Linda has helped a GREAT deal too! We can't say enough good things. I benefit greatly from the site and I wanted to give a shout out to MARK!
