Arthur Rankin, Jr.

Arthur Rankin, Jr. at his home in Bermuda, just after the release of our book THE 15th ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO We have lots of nice things to say about this man in our documentary film and Thankfully, have several interviews with him before he passed away last year.

Check this out in Chicago!

If you have never been to the museum, you are in for a treat!  My favorite museum in Chicago for many reasons!  Loaded with great stuff and our friend Jim Engel did most of the displays and they are greeeeeaaaat!   I haven't been down to see the SVENGOOLIE display yet BUT saw many pictures and loved it!  I have been going through my advertising collection recently, after hearing about this and want to see this exhibit too.  Great stuff!
