Happy 81st Birthday to Roger McGuinn! He once asked to use a picture of me wearing his LIMITED EDITION shirt. The picture was of me in the studio with the Gas Giants. I was honored. We also talked at length about our Rickenbacker 12 strings. #rogermcguinn #legend #birthday #thebyrds

This is a photo from the Vent Haven museum. Many people ask me about the famed Rankin/Bass' The Charlie McCarthy show pilot film that Rankin/Bass Productions shot (Detailed in my book The 20th Anniversary edition of The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass: A Portfolio available in hardcover from www.miserbros.com ). As of this date, the film has not been found. It is a holy grail of mine. When I was writing my 6th book, Rankin/Bass' Frosty the Snowman 50th Anniversary scrapbook, a friend of mine located the Animagic figure of Mortimer Snerd at the Vent Haven Museum. The Museum was kind enough to take good pictures for me and I included them large in my Frosty book! The Rankin/Bass figure of Mortimer was on display at the Vent Haven museum (That appears to be him in the upper right corner of the big case to the left).
