The RANKIN/BASS blog!
My good friend, RICK GOLDSCHMIDT, is the official historian of Rankin/Bass Productions. He's written a couple of books about the studio, The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass: A Portfolio and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Making of the Rankin/Bass Holiday Classic. Rick also has a blog, http://www.enchantedworldofrankinbass.blogspot.com/, where he keeps Rankin/Bass fans informed of what's happening in the Rankin/Bass world. Rick also keeps us up-to-date with his music projects! Rankin/Bass Productions have given us the classic holiday TV specials RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS, SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN, LITTLE DRUMMER BOY and the cult-classic feature film, MAD MONSTER PARTY! I'm posting a few pieces of Rankin/Bass character art that I've done over the last few years. The HEAT MISER and SNOW MISER from The Year Without a Santa Claus, SAM THE SNOWMAN from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and FELIX FLANKIN from Mad Monster Party. Be sure to check out Rick's blog!
