c. 1960 RANKIN/BASS PRODUCTIONS/RICK GOLDSCHMIDT ARCHIVES
Arthur Rankin, Jr. working on the last five episodes of THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO with a character named Willy Nilly, who was able to go back in time. These episodes lead to the premise of their feature film WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE (1965).
Don has always been a great friend and a great help with my research! He contributed tons to my books and still does some great work at his company POLESTAR ANIMATION. The day my first book came out....ARTHUR RANKIN, JR. and DON DUGA gave a talk at the SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS in New York and did a book signing (I have this on video).....while I was at the NEWBERRY LIBRARY in downtown Chicago, doing the same :)
