Heard from my pal DEREK today :)  He said "I dealt him nothin' but aces!"


from my books :)  This is the 1964 advertisement that featured the actual ANIMAGIC figures :)  Love the commercials and they have become a part of my annual viewing since discovering them about 14 years ago!

Maury Laws has always been a BIG help with my projects :)  I would like to send a BIG Thank You his way for letting us include some of his original sheet music of the BEST loved RANKIN/BASS songs in the new book!

Looks like his website has a fresh, new look :)  Lots of info on what he has been up to and you can contact him there :)
