TOM and JERRY cartoon fun! Love the above 1960 comic book cover by Harvey Eisenberg! Terrific layout and beautiful design!...something you don't see very often anymore. Below is a box of TOM and JERRY Crayons from 1966...looks like the Chuck Jones characters. Jones was doing the TOM and JERRY cartoons at the time.

Love Walt Disney's SANTA'S TOY SHOP Little Golden Book from 1950! Sensational illustrations by the Walt Disney Studio (Adapted by Al Dempster). One of the first LGBs I remember having!
I remember buying both of these books just before Christmas 1974! I still have them in my collection.

Saw this on Facebook...it was posted by Facebook friend, Charles Brubaker. It's a cool ad for the Chuck Jones TOM & JERRY cartoons, so I thought I'd share it here! MGM placed the ad in the November 29, 1965 issue of BoxOffice magazine. I was just watching the DVD set of the Chuck Jones TOM & JERRY cartoons. Click on the ad for a larger view!

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN ART ON DVD PACKAGING!

Good to see that Classic Media once again used my FROSTY THE SNOWMAN art on their latest DVD release of the classic 1969 Rankin/Bass Christmas TV special! It would have been nice to use the special's title lettering (shown below, by Paul Coker, Jr.) and the names RANKIN/BASS on the front cover, as they did on their initial FROSTY THE SNOWMAN DVD release a few years ago. NOTE: Scroll down to see my December 2, 2010 posting for the FROSTY THE SNOWMAN original art that I have available!
