A couple of RARE shots of Arthur I am adding to an upcoming project :) They were on display at the museum and then Olga brought to Arthur's 90th Birthday party! The one on the left is an early filming of a VIDEOCRAFT commercial for WEST PINE. The photograph on the right is Arthur working on WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE.
I like the covers they put together here. I think the DVD cover looks better than the BLU RAY so far. Looks like they are on the right track...the cover needs to be a simple color image with the BATMAN TV logo, in my opinion :)

C. 2014 RICK GOLDSCHMIDT
This is the piece I was blown away by in Arthur's den in Bermuda! I knew my pal Jack Davis did it for Arthur BUT never saw it. Arthur always wanted to keep prospective projects under wraps until they happened. They made test footage for this project in CGI, which Jack was impressed by. Masaki also said it was very good. I will see it soon and I asked Olga if I could bring this to some of my upcoming events :) I like for all of the fans that love this stuff as much as I do, to be able to share it...
Animagic that didn't make it to the screen BUT Amazing stuff! Masaki Iizuka told me there was an early 1990's treatment of this show BUT the project dates back to the 1960's and was also intended to be part of THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF DANNY KAYE series featuring the voices of Jerry Lewis and Carol Burnett. We also have many of the demo tracks for the project and featured a few on THE DAYDREAMER soundtrack cd.
