This opened yesterday. I talked to the museum today and they are waiting for some professional photos they had taken, to share with me. I saw a glimpse of my photos in the display and they looked good. I am glad the publicity photo/NBC display Animagic figures are on display again! #rudolphtherednosedreindeer

Underdog always reminds me of Thanksgiving! His balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade was one of the best! Nothing from this modern era compares. #underdog #Thanksgiving

Rankin/Bass' Santa Claus is Comin' to town returns to ABC TV November 26th (heavily edited on black Friday) at 7 pm Central time 🎅 When Wes Garlatz and I got to page 372 in our hardcover book about the Making of the special, we knew we had something! Available at We decided to include Arthur Rankin's shooting script, so you could read along as Grinzley finds the baby Claus 👼 With the release of our new blu ray on The Daydreamer, you can read about that film too. #santaclausiscomintotown #blackfriday #abctv

I know Jimmy would have commented on this post. One of the few items he was pictured on. It took me a while to find one in this shape! Remembering Jimmy Garrett #thelucyshow #Jimmygarrett #lucilleball

Looks like I will be a guest speaker at the film school at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, via Zoom. I am told they are in the top ten film schools of the country. We will be focusing on Rankin/Bass' Santa Claus is Comin' to town, which some of the students haven't seen yet 🎅 My holiday season is always full of surprises 🦃 #rankinbassproductions #Rickgoldschmidt #guestspeaker



More than ever!

Holiday fun!
