Josh broke his right foot at the skatepark yesterday and we were moving a bit slow around the park. Lots of casts in the Goldschmidt family right now.

Since alot of people are away at the SAN DIEGO COMICON, I thought I would offer a few of my DELUXE HARDCOVER 2008/2009 edition of my book THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO at a discounted price of $55 shipped. They are consistantly selling for more than that at http://www.amazon.com/ BUT I know the economy is NOT good right now and recently picked up a few FRESH copies! I will sign and draw in the books and it does feature a few new pages and updates, including the one pictured above. PAYPAL Rickgoldsc@aol.com or e-mail me for mailing address. ENJOY!
As I watch the NEW 1960's PEANUTS DVD set....I think back to when my brother Chris and I were PEANUTS. These pictures were taken around the time that YOU'RE IN LOVE, CHARLIE BHROWN aired for the first time. I remember a few different PEANUTS shirts my brother and I had back then and my grandfather had a PEANUTS serving tray at his house.
Here is another piece of MMP art from Chris Mason sent to me by my pal Bob Dube! ALLEN SWIFT does the FELIX FLANKIN voice in the SPARKHILL documentary MAD MONSTER PARTY? MAKING OF A CULT CLASSIC
I took this picture many years ago....just weeks before they told CLAYTON MOORE: THE LONE RANGER he could not wear his mask at appearances anymore. This is when lawyers and rights owners started messing with things they should not mess with! There is and always will be one LONE RANGER. This appearance was at LINCOLN MALL in MATTESON, IL.

PAUL COKER, JR. did this art for me for the proposed RANKIN/BASS TV Special THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR starring ANDY WILLIAMS and THE OSMONDS
THE MAKING OF THE RANKIN/BASS HOLIDAY CLASSIC: RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER first edition hardcover
I only have a couple left! I can't believe we sold all of those books...thousands. I will post a picture soon of when the books were delivered and the many boxes that my friend Dennis and Dad took in! For our CHRISTMAS IN JULY sale the book is $30 and the shipping is FREE through the weekend. Once they are gone...they are gone and then I am sure the price will go up as it did on the FIRST EDITION of THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS : A PORTFOLIO.

With the way this recession/depression has been going, it is also important to get your PRE-ORDERS in on the new RANKIN/BASS RUDOLPH toys for 2009! Many of these toys are made specifically for TIME & SPACE and if you are building a collection, you won't want to miss out on the more popular figures. www.timeandspacetoys.com
PRE-ORDER at www.timeandspacetoys.com It is important that if you are interested in these, you get your order in early... so that you don't miss out! In the past, the manufacturer had no idea what the demand would be and certain figures were not produced in the quantity to meet the demand.
