Looking forward to this one! It's the new MAD MONSTER PARTY Special Edition DVD. The DVD will be released later this year on September 8. It's currently available for pre-order on Amazon for $10.49. Rankin/Bass Historian and Biographer, RICK GOLDSCHMIDT, tells me that the new MAD MONSTER PARTY documentary on this edition is well worth that alone! The documentary includes interviews with GOLDSCHMIDT, ARTHUR RANKIN, JR., voice artist ALLEN SWIFT, storyboard artist DON DUGA, musical director MAURY LAWS and others. Great to see the RANKIN/BASS name on the DVD's cover!

You've seen this on my blog sidebar, but here it is for a larger view...THE MONKEES! I want to send out best wishes to PETER TORK, who had cancer surgery earlier this year. Leslie and I met Peter a couple of years ago, and he was a terrific guy.

If you grew up in the Chicago area during the 1970s, as I did, you will remember COOKY from WGN-TV's, BOZO's CIRCUS. COOKY was played by the great ROY BROWN. What a great time for kids TV in Chicago! I did this COOKY piece for fun. Check my blog sidebar for my GARFIELD GOOSE art!

One of my favorite HANNA-BARBERA adventure cartoons...THE ADVENTURES OF GULLIVER. The bottom image is the original painted art for a 1960s ADVENTURES OF GULLIVER puzzle. GULLIVER was voiced by the great JERRY DEXTER.

Love these cartoon background paintings for THE FLINTSTONES and YOGI BEAR! There is so much appeal to the early HANNA-BARBERA TV cartoons...from the colorful character designs to the beautiful backgrounds! I believe these particular backgrounds were painted by ART LOZZI and FERNANDO MONTEALEGRE. Click on each image for a larger view of Hanna-Barbera candy!

MARK CHRISTIANSEN created this concept for the cover of THE BUGS BUNNY SHOW DVD set. I think Mark did an excellent job! Hopefully, the show will get an official release from WB Home Video...and they'll start using art like this on the packaging of their classic cartoon DVD releases! This is how it should be done!
