About Those Classics

While watching the afore-mentioned Christmas classics tonight we watched two of the best: Santa Claus is Comin' To Town and, perhaps the greatest of them all (and my wife's favorite), A Year Without A Santa Claus. As we watched the stop-motion animation unfold, I wondered about the creators, Rankin & Bass. Who, exactly, are these wackos with such eternal patience (because, by God, you'd have to be patient to do all that stop-motion work)?

Learn for yourself: Here's the best overview out there. You should also visit The Enchanted World of Rankin and Bass (which is actually a fan site) and Cartoon-O-Rama: Rankin/Bass Productions.

And for the truly hard-core ... you know who you are ... The Heat Miser's Hot Spot.

Of course, none of these sites answer the unanswered question: Snow Miser and John Kerry--separated at birth?
