Interesting release. It is coming from the same company that is releasing JACK FROST (WARNER BROTHERS) BUT they failed to mention or include the RANKIN/BASS name/logo on the front cover. Several months ago, I heard from the people WARNER BROTHERS hired to put together the extras. They asked me if I had stuff from the series...I advised I could help with the entire files and have LOTS. I asked for compensation for my help and that was the last I heard from them????? In other words, the SPECIAL FEATURES on this set will not be complete and most likely be garbage. Again, no RANKIN/BASS Documentary with interviews of people that worked on the series?

EBAY: Who is minding the store?

I often wonder who the brilliant minds are behind EBAY these days. They remove the option of leaving negative feedback for sellers. When you ask why???? They send you a form letter answer. When you respond to get another stock response. Did computers actually take over EBAY? Is there any living person there with a thinking brain right now? If you know, let me know.

H-B JELLYSTONE PARK puzzle postcard from Sara!

The kids are back now and I took Sara to GUITAR CENTER to pick up her first YAMAHA Acoustic guitar last night!

NEW JACK FROST DVD on the way from WB

Coming this Fall. The SPECIAL FEATURES are garbage BUT I like the cover! They (The people that put the extra features together outside of WARNER BROTHERS) thought fans would like a sing-a-long much better than a RANKIN/BASS Documentary. I like the RANKIN/BASS name on the front cover. They lifted the logo right out of my first book. PATRICK OWSLEY did it.
