Rankin/Bass' The Little Drummer boy is 50 this year!  It is what Christmas is all about.  I wonder if NBC will celebrate with a special airing?  I'm not holding my breath.  So many come up to me at events and say it is a shame it isn't broadcast anymore.  A sign of the times. #rankinbass #thelittledrummerboy #animagic #classic #nbc #greergarson #tedeccles #tv

The Starving Artists


Rudolph's nose lit up on it's own tonight from the vibration of the music! No joke, hasn't lit in a few years! Shining bright too! #november #rankinbass #rudolphtherednosedreindeer

I think it is an omen for the good season that is coming! 

Willum is 50!

I want to Thank my friend Eric Hultgren for coming out to Pop Con Milwaukee and gifting me some of the harder to find Megos!  I was able to give my brother an Action Jackson for his birthday!  We both got AJ at a police Christmas party in the early 1970s.  #megos


I didn't get a chance to talk to my friend Wesley Eure (he was busy signing every time I passed his table), but just before I left for Milwaukee I read in my friend Johnny Ray Miller 's wonderful book, When Were Singin', that Wesley was up for a possible neighbor role in what would have been the fifth season of The Partridge Family.  As David Cassidy was exiting, Wesley might have been a singing neighbor with a dad who was a love interest for Shirley Jones Ingels.  Wesley also worked with  Mike Curb, who actually Produced the music for Rankin/Bass' Kid Power. #thelandofthelost #popconmilwaukee #sunday

Still getting cool Halloween stuff in the mail! 🎃 #kevinandjody #anaheimfallfestivalhalloweenparade #art

Dean Martin - The Lucky Song

Ann Robinson's son visited my booth, so I paid them a visit too. We were both at Chiller last weekend, but never got a chance to see each other. #thewaroftheworlds #annrobinson

I get to see the layout of our Holiday article for the holiday issue tomorrow! I also got a subscription...

Sunday was an absolute blast!
