RANKIN/BASS' MAD MONSTER PARTY REUNION


C. 2014 RICK GOLDSCHMIDT

This is the piece I was blown away by in Arthur's den in Bermuda! I knew my pal Jack Davis did it for Arthur BUT never saw it. Arthur always wanted to keep prospective projects under wraps until they happened. They made test footage for this project in CGI, which Jack was impressed by. Masaki also said it was very good. I will see it soon and I asked Olga if I could bring this to some of my upcoming events :) I like for all of the fans that love this stuff as much as I do, to be able to share it...

Dobie!

RANKIN/BASS' PUNCH & JUDY



Animagic that didn't make it to the screen BUT Amazing stuff!  Masaki Iizuka told me there was an early 1990's treatment of this show BUT the project dates back to the 1960's and was also intended to be part of THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF DANNY KAYE series featuring the voices of Jerry Lewis and Carol Burnett.   We also have many of the demo tracks for the project and featured a few on THE DAYDREAMER soundtrack cd.

MASTERWORKS THE ART OF BERMUDA in ARTHUR'S GALAXY!  It is a small space right now BUT they intend to make it a much bigger display and I hope to be a part of that.

JAMES GARNER R.I.P.



Quality actors keep passing (few left) and we are left with actors barely passing...

Shirley Temple in Animagic!

Arthur Rankin, Sr. appeared in Shirley Temple films and Arthur Rankin, Jr. had Shirley's approval for an ANIMAGIC project but failed to win over her agent.

It's Arthur Rankin week!
