This is the guy who created the Bumble, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius,
Sam the Snowman, The Island of Misfit Toys, Clarice, The Heat Miser,
The Snow Miser and many more! Often, he based the characters on friends
and used their names. This is one of many newspaper interviews I have
from his personal scrapbook. Romeo Muller, Jr. was the genius writer
behind the characters! #romeomuller#rudolphtherednosedreindeer#santaclaus#rankinbass#writer#creator#genius
