Comments:
Impeccably researched and comprehensively detailed, "The Enchanted World Of Rankin/Bass" is a treasure trove of info for fans of the wonderful animated programs created by the duo. Lovingly written by Rick Goldschmidt, the book is a wonderful keepsake chronicling the creation and enduring impact of the classic rankin/Bass animated shows. Tons of rare photos--many in breathtaking color--rare memorabilia plus lots more await the reader on this terrific journey back in time. Compelling interviews with many of the personnel involved with the shows --voiceover artists, script writers, set designers, industry big wigs---draw the reader into the story. From "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" to "Frosty The Snowman," all your faviorites are here in this terrific tome. This is the bible for fans of Rankin/Bass and author Goldschmidt should be commended for his exemplary efforts. Refreshing, informative and full of fascinating minutiae, the book is a true labor of love. Of special interest to Oz fans are the information about the series Tales of the Wizard of Oz and the specials Return to Oz and The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (the latter based on a book by L. Frank Baum).
