A week from tonight, I return to Santa's Village for the last date in my Christmas schedule! A great place to bring the entire family and I will be in Mrs. Claus' Cozy Kitchen, where it is nice and warm! I hope to see you all there and I will be bringing some new items for sale and fun stuff! Many people don't realize, besides the lights, most of the rides are still running too!

Rudolph & Frosty were on CBS tonight! We are getting all sorts of order for all of our books! Make sure you get your order in for the NEW Frosty book! I believe I will be getting the proof on Monday and then I will try to rush off shipments for the books as soon as the printer has them done! AMAZON will not be getting the book, so if you ordered there, cancel and order at

Everyone was happy. I've attached a photo of the lucky winners!!!!! #rankinbassbookwinners #christmas #fun

I visited Romeo Muller and Antony Peter's creations from Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer today! The new figures were made by Kate Stransky! Awesome job! šŸŽ…šŸ‘šŸ¦Œ #rankinbassproductions #theislandofmisfittoys #rudolphtherednosedreindeer — in Chicago, Illinois.

 As I stated before, Romeo Muller based most of the characters from Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer off of his friends and family!  He added all of the characters we know and love from the TV Special version of the story, as Stan Lee did for Marvel Comics.   Antony Peters designed all of the Rankin/Bass Characters from the 1950s through 1966.  It was his designs we see in Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, as he was the Jack Kirby in the Rankin/Bass Universe!
 Kate Stransky did a wonderful job with these new renditions!

We went to Michael Jordan's Steak House for lunch before my WGN Radio appearance!  Always great!
