BJ & Dirty Dragon clippings! I think I have them all!

Frosty the Snowman's 50th

Many people ask me, "Which is the best dvd of Frosty to buy?"    This one right here!  In writing my new book, I looked back on the Arthur Rankin introduction and forgot how many photos in that introduction I helped with!   Arthur is also reading my first book at the beginning of the introduction and you can see it on the table next to him.

     Like the other Rankin/Bass specials, Romeo Muller created the additional characters in the special and Paul Coker, Jr. did a beautiful job of designing them!   The Frosty pencil test is also included on this dvd.    It is sad that Frosty Returns was added, but you don't have to watch it.  At any rate, this is far superior than any of the more recent releases!

Tony Peters, Co-Creator of the Bumble

Rankin/Bass designer Tony Peters signed this Bumble (A character which he co-created with Romeo Muller, Jr.) card with a Tee Pee.  Why a Tee Pee?   His initials were TP.   He had a great sense of humor, just like Paul Coker, Jr..  I love Tony's designs of all the Rankin/Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer TV Special characters, which Romeo Muller created!
