Here is another cool article from TV Insider cable guide with a link to our website!

From our episode Premiering tomorrow night at 9:30 PM Central time

In this article, Lisa talks about learning about Mego dolls in our episode and then the Blair Mego figure hit the store shelves shortly after and she knew what a Mego was!

I didn't know Mickey was into potatos! I love the Plain Jane and all others at Jason's Deli! Looks like this was similar and it came with all sorts of styles...


A Reminder.....Tomorrow Night!

Shag Pink Elephant

 I got a nice Collector's Call gift from my pal Shag and it is no Dumbo!   I hope to get back to The Shag Stores soon for business and fun!    You will see lots of Shag stuff in my episode of Collector's Call Sunday night at 9:30 pm Central time on Me TV!

Family Affair

I will get my friend Kathy Garver to sign the lunchbox next time I see her!   Lisa's favorite show was Family Affair when she was small and sold telephone books with her mother to buy a Mrs. Beasley doll!

Hallmark Announced their 2019 Rankin/Bass Christmas ornaments!

The BEST ones!

This Sunday at 9 pm! Me TV is running all sorts of commercials now for the Premiere. There was one I was in with Lisa and I in the scene I came up with. This is one that ran tonight!

Easter is on it's way!

Tad Mochinaga

Orders have started to pick up...lots of publicity swirling now! I got my second book order from Japan for the dear Tad Mochinaga family! Tad was the head Animagic animator for Rankin/Bass on the early productions, including Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The New Adventures of Pinocchio, Willy McBean and his magic machine, The Daydreamer, etc. I talk about some of the Animagic figures he saved in his collection in my new book celebrating Frosty the Snowman's 50th! You can read about some in our book The Making of Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town and The Daydreamer too! I talk about items in Collector's Call that came directly from Tad and his staff from Mad Monster Party in my collection! I can tell this is going to be a very busy year for me and The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass! #tadmochinaga #animagic #japan #rankinbass #history

Lisa did a ton of press Monday for the show! I did a little too! Here is her Tuesday Itinery

One full day of PR down, three more to go.

Still thinking about Maury!

Still remembering the great Maury Laws! Going through some of my ring binders and old pictures and gave a few quotes for the Variety obit. What a great guy! #musicalsupervisor #conductor #composer #maurylaws #rankinbass

Collector's Call Listing from Me TV site: 9:30pm Collector's Call

NOSTALGIC TOYS AND ADVERTISING - "Designer, author and artist, Rick Goldschmidt loved the toys of his youth so much, that as he grew older, he didn’t give them away, but rather bought more as his budget allowed. And Rick has a collection that now literally covers every surface and wall of his entire house. Rick is joined by his son, Josh who is a collector himself, as he shows Lisa parts of his collection including some original Rankin Bass relics, Mego dolls, a limited edition coloring book given to children on the set of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and a nearly complete set of Captain Action toys and displays. And we’ve brought along David Gutterman, owners of Quake Collectibles to appraise Rick’s collection and perhaps make a trade with a vintage Kellogg’s lunchbox from his own collection."

Maury Laws in Action! I talk about Maury at all of my presentations! Many more coming up in 2019!


Happy 85th Birthday to Shirley Jones Ingels!

Happy Birthday to John Astin on Saturday!
