Still enjoying THE DICK VAN DYKE blu ray set! The show looks AMAZING in HIGH-DEFINITION...you can see the actor's makeup..it is that sharp. I love the fact that they left the commercials and billboards they had, in the body of the show automatically and the option is to watch them without the bumpers, etc. I hated clicking on Dick's head, etc. when they were released on DVD. There are many blu ray exclusives including a cool COLOR TEST on the WALNUT episode :) It is neat to see what the open of the show looks like in color!
I found my 3-sheet from THE BRASS BOTTLE :) They have been showing the film repeatedly on COZI the last few weeks... Burl from the same year as RANKIN/BASS' RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER.

I drove past and located SANTA'S VILLAGE last week and was happy to see that it still exists in DUNDEE, ILLINOIS. I knew they closed a few years back (I believe in 2005) and I didn't hear anything about it since BUT apparently it has been restored and reopened under new management as a park and zoo for small children. They are open from spring to fall. www.santasvillagedundee.com
I was telling Josh and Sara about the sale of the BATMOBILE that we saw and took tons of pictures of in Barris' shop :) I think it sold at auction for something like $4.5 Million. It wasn't all original and there were some strange signs added to it and various parts BUT it was one of the originals.
