ROMEO MULLER, JR. is the writer of the one-hour Rankin/Bass Musicla version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! The creator of the Island of Misfit toys and so much more!

 Romeo Muller, Jr., is the incredibly talented writer, who wrote and created the Rankin/Bass Television version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I believe he will get his due this holiday season! He took the gem of a story by Robert L. May and the song by May's brother-in-law Johnny Marks, and expanded it into a one hour musical spectacular! Romeo created the Island of Misfit Toys, Hermey the Elf, Clarice, The Abominable Snowman (Bumble), Yukon Cornelius, Sam The Snowman, The Island of Misfit toys, etc. I dug out his final revised script from 3-7-1964 tonight! Read more about Romeo in all of my books, including the new 20th Anniversary edition of The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass: A Portfolio C. 2001 Miser Bros Press/Rick Goldschmidt Archives
