I still have CD #1 with all the RARE Tracks, Demos and logo music from the RANKIN/BASS archives! Showcases the genius of MAURY LAWS & JULES BASS! Tracks from KING KONG, MAD MONSTER PARTY, the MISER BROS Themes, etc. Cool Stuff! E-mail: Rickgoldsc@aol.com

This is definitely something to look forward to! Should be out soon and my friend PATRICK OWSLEY did the sensational art for the packaging! He did a logo right from the series BUT for some reason they decided not to use it...their loss.
E-mail: Rickgoldsc@aol.com This was the highest rated RANKIN/BASS TV special and starred THE MARX BROTHERS, FLIP WILSON, THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS, W.C.FIELDS (Voiced by PAUL FREES), PHYLLIS DILLER, GEORGE JESSEL and many others! You can even see POPEYE and DEAN MARTIN & JERRY LEWIS in the audience.

Josh and I played 36 holes of golf today in the AT&T Mini-golf tournament at HOLLYWOOD PARK in Crestwood, Illinois! GORGOUS DAY to do so!
I also mailed out 20 RANKIN/BASS DVD packages...so if you ordered one from me this week, it is on it's way. More to come! Just got in the MAD, MAD, MAD COMEDIANS (RARELY seen RANKIN/BASS Special from 1970), the extended version of THE BERMUDA DEPTHS with the scenes only seen in the European market and THE FLIGHT OF DRAGONS (BEST SELLER!)!
HOLY BAT COSTUME!
HOLLYWOOD PARK has this BATMAN costume from ADAM WEST's collection. It was made for the 30th Anniversary of the 1966 series and worn by him in a BATMAN magazine FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND issued. I can tell the components were made by my pal CLINT YOUNG and the cowl came from WALLY WINGERT (as did the one in my collection).

You can't beat this film! Nice alternative to watching an extremely violent and disturbing , over-hyped film like THE DARK KNIGHT. Not sure what the company was thinking when they designed this cover though....probably of tapping into the DARK KNIGHT audience.

Here is RUDOLPH before restoral by Seamus and Robin Walsh at SCREEN NOVELTIES! Visit http://www.screen-novelties.com/ for the rest of the story. They are restoring OCTAVIA from THE FIRST CHRISTMAS (1975) right now. They made a RANKIN/BASS ANIMAGIC figure of JINGLE BELLS for my friend PAUL DINI, a few years ago. They also did the GREAT ANIMAGIC type segment of THE FLINTSTONES ON THE ROCKS, which resembled the VIEW-MASTER treatments of the HANNA-BARBERA characters.
Josh and I had pretty good seats near Left Field...
Where else can you pay $22 for parking? Your car gets packed in like a sardine and you get your bumper scratched at no extra charge.
ALL STAR WHITE SOX Left Fielder Carlos Quentin!
It is a bit fuzzy...BUT this was right before JOSH HAMILTON hit a three run homer! It was GREAT to see him in action! He set a record in the ALL STAR GAME HOME RUN Derby this year with something like 28 HRs in one round. He already has something like 98 RBIs! AMAZING! JOSH GOLDSCHMIDT became a BIG fan of his tonight!
