Here are some photos of when owner Kevin Kriess/Time and Space Toys and I took Rudolph and Santa Claus out on tour 2005-2008, after our friends at Screen-Novelties restored the duo! Many fans got to see them up close and personal. What a great era for me! I have many more photos I will share during the holidays! #AP #Rudolphtherednosedreindeer #auction #rankinbassproductions #christmas

Family and friends are all sending me the AP article today about the auction. I did help with the catalog and am aware of the sale. I was recently interviewed by Entertainment Weekly about Rudolph and my work for an article coming out around Thanksgiving. I have a very detailed Rudolph article in RetroFan magazine #12 and Santa Claus is Comin' to town turns 50 this year and I have an article in the December ReMind magazine, which will also appear in all of the various cable guides NTVB does. Big Rankin/Bass Productions year! More to come! Update: just noticed the AP article has errors in it..they should have given me a call. #rudolphtherednosedreindeer #rankinbassproductions #Rickgoldschmidt

Order early!

Aurora models

This is the guy who created the Bumble, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius, Sam the Snowman, The Island of Misfit Toys, Clarice, The Heat Miser, The Snow Miser and many more! Often, he based the characters on friends and used their names. This is one of many newspaper interviews I have from his personal scrapbook. Romeo Muller, Jr. was the genius writer behind the characters! #romeomuller #rudolphtherednosedreindeer #santaclaus #rankinbass #writer #creator #genius

It was raining leaves today 🍃🍂🍁 48 degrees right now...and loving it!

My daughter Sara and new son-in-law Mike Mandru got married on their original wedding date October 10th! Congratulations 👏


These are the roughs that my pal Shag did, for his Rankin/Bass' Mad Monster Party print a few years back 🎃 We appeared together at a few wonderful events in his stores, that are documented in our book Rankin/Bass' Frosty the Snowman 50th anniversary scrapbook. I talked to him today and he has some great products being released in his store tomorrow, including a Retrogogo Halloween Tiki mask 👺 #joshagle #madmonsterparty #rankinbassproductions #shag #Halloween

Journey Into Mystery #83 first appearance of the mighty Thor (big bucks!) was at the news stand too and a nice Flinstones.

My favorite Penguin, Burgess Meredith appeared in a 1962 episode of Naked City called "Hold for Gloria Christmas" with Herschel Bernardi. AMAZING FANTASY #15 was at the news stand at the time. If he snapped up a mint one for 10 cents, could be worth millions today 😁 #marvelcomics #Batman #spiderman #Amazingfantasy
