Raindrops are falling on my head #1 03-03-2022 The Starving Artists


My late friend Bob McFadden was the voice of Jingle Bells! In fact, he did a voice mail message for me as the character. Bob and I connected just after my first book, The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass: A Portfolio was released. He knew he was ill and wanted someone to document his career and sent me copies of everything. Bob had a wonderful career and voiced so many of my favorites including Milton the Monster, Cool McCool, Frankenberry, Baron Von Frankenstein in Rankin/Bass' Mad, Mad, Mad Monsters and more! A legend in the business! #Theyearwithoutasantaclaus #bobmcfadden #Jinglebells

Have you wondered what Mrs. Claus looks like from Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer today?

Look no further than page 125 of our book Rankin/Bass' Frosty the Snowman 50th Anniversary scrapbook (Miser Bros Press) available at


 The Animagic figure head is pictured third row back, second from the right!  Tad Mochinaga would often use the same Animagic bodies for various films, but different costumes and their heads were removable.   Many of the Animagic heads from 1960-1966 are pictured on page 125 in Excellent condition.
