RANKIN/BASS' TV Special classics continue to glow and RANKIN/BASS' RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER is no exception (Which turns 50 in 2014). We have some exciting things planned including some appearances with the original ANIMAGIC figures :)

Watch SVENGOOLIE this Saturday night on ME TV! He will be showing RANKIN/BASS' KING KONG ESCAPES and showing a certain book. Rich will also be showing the book in a longer segment on one of his July shows in a mail segment :)
One of Rankin/Bass writer ROMEO MULLER's cousins asked me to speak at a convention the week of July 23, 2014 of the Golden Glow of Christmas Past. The “Glow” is an international organization of collectors of pre-1966 antique and vintage Christmas ornaments, lights and decorations at the Westin in Lombard, IL for RUDOLPH's 50th Going to try to make it... We hope to display Romeo's two ANIMAGIC friends pictured here.
Just learned that my dear friend Gene Muller (Romeo's brother) passed away just after Christmas in 2009. Gene was so helpful with my work and opened up Romeo's archives to me. I went out to dinner with Gene when Arthur was honored at the MUSEUM OF TELEVISION & RADIO in New York. A great guy and he will be missed.

Since Ray was in the McDonald's commercial as Ronald, I thought I would celebrate his life in pictures :)
