I have all 6 books in-stock right now at www.miserbros.com and you do get a bundle discount on 2-5. I no longer get the personalization requests, but you can send those to me at Rickgoldsc@aol.com It has been almost a year since Wes Garlatz passed away and we miss him greatly.
This calendar is from Rankin/Bass' Here Comes Peter Cottontail, which celebrates it's 50th Anniversary this year! Notice how the days of the month are exactly the same as 2021 😁 #stpatricksday #march #rankinbassproductions

As I write my article on Rankin/Bass' Mad Monster Party for RetroFan magazine, I recalled this episode of Princess Comet (A Japanese TV series 1967-68) that features a dragon from Rankin/Bass' The New Adventures of Pinocchio and a talking IT (King Kong) from Rankin/Bass' Mad Monster Party? who ends up saving the day! Kong has much more screen time in this and is quite funny as he talks too! Tad Mochinaga animated this and saved both puppets, which are featured in my book Frosty the Snowman's 50th Anniversary scrapbook. The puppets were on display at an exhibit in Japan a few years back. IT really gets a workout in this episode and I am surprised he survived in such good condition. You can see that he is about 22" in this episode and in the photos from the exhibit and that is about the same size that the Abominable Snow Monster was from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Thanks to my friend Mark Caballero for refreshing my memory on this! This is actually a Spanished dubbed version Senorita Cometa.
