Collector's Call Coca-Cola

Dan Thielmann's episode is on Collector's Call on ME TV for Mother's Day. I met Dan at the premiere party and he collects Coca Cola memorabilia. Dan is good friends with my mailman Larry! Things go better with Coke! #metv #mothersday #lisawhelchel #cocacola #coke #television #seasonone #popculture

A Grand Friday!

Happy Birthday to Fred!

Happy Birthday to the super talented Fred Astaire! I just watched a Dick Cavett interview with Fred on Decades, that was during the era that he first worked for Rankin/Bass Productions. I also saw a retrospective on Through the Decades, and I always find it amazing that people who research his career, leave out one of the most significant performances of his career, that many generations know him from. #fredastaire #sdklueger #santaclausiscomintotown #dancer #actor #singer

We may be coming to your town!

Do you know of any Holiday events or conventions that would like to host something special this Holiday season? I spoke to both Chicago Zoos yesterday. Let me know 🎅 Thanks! #rankinbass #rickgoldschmidtappearances #animagicfigures #presentations   Email:

The Great Ak

The Great Ak from Rankin/Bass' The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is one of the surviving Animagic figures that we talk about in our 20th Anniversary edition of The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass book (MISER BROS PRESS). In our new book, Rankin/Bass' Frosty the Snowman 50th Anniversary Scrapbook, we discuss another group of surviving Animagic figures!
