Frosty's Anniversary Tribute
Rick Goldschmidt, historian and biographer with Rankin/Bass, will speak about the making of the Rankin/Bass Holiday Classic: Frosty the Snowman. The Illustrator/cartoonist has authored several books, including: The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass: A Portfolio, Mad Monster Party, and The Arthur Rankin Jr. Scrapbook.
Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass are best-known for producing some of the most popular animated holiday TV specials ever aired, including the long-running Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Year Without a Santa Claus, The Hobbit and Frosty The Snowman. The latter was released 50 years ago. They also collaborated on the animated feature films Mad Monster Party and The Last Unicorn, and cartoon series such as ThunderCats, The Jackson Five, and SilverHawks.
