My pal Dave Harms paid me a visit tonight and picked up his Frosty books! He and his collection are featured in the introduction of the book! A fun Halloween Frosty evening! ☃️

I wore this Rudolph costume in 2001 (the year my book The making of the Rankin/Bass Holiday classic: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was released) to one of the many Alex Ross Halloween parties I attended (That is Alex's Mother's art behind me). My sister Lindsey Pignatiello later wore this costume on an episode of Wild Chicago on PBS 🎅 The nose lit up with a button. HAPPY HALLOWEEN 🎃 #Halloween #Rudolphtherednosedreindeer #rankinbassproductions

I ordered a Halloween mask three months ago from Trick or Treat..for Halloween! UPS delayed shipment twice and now says it is coming Monday? I look at their online ratings and they have one star 🤣 Pretty poor service. On a lighter note, a Producer from Antiques Roadshow wants to interview me for his podcast show Detours tonight (I guess it will be used for TV we are doing camera) about Rudolph and Santa 🎅 #friday

Getting all cleaned up for the weekend 🎃

I just signed on to do a new Rankin/Bass' Mad Monster Party? Magazine article for RetroFan issue #17 (Out October 2021)! Don't miss my article in issue #12 on Rudolph (Out December 2020)!


A Bewitched weekend 🎃
