I love him..so much.
Rudolph’s Shiny New Year by Rankin/Bass (1976)
Ok but the rankin bass adaptation of the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is some serious character design porn
Just about EVERY character is intricately designed, this is only the tip of the iceberg. They made this whole cast of amazingly detailed immortal counsel members and maybe three of them speak in the movie. But they’re all magnificent figures.
I’m half-guessing they went all out because this was Rankin/Bass’ last stop motion film.
I love the Island of Misfit Toys in Rankin Bass’ Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer.
That’s were I belong. I love this Christmas special. Watching this every year reminds me of how much I loved the holidays. After school, I ran straight to the television because I didn’t want to miss the christmas specials. My myopic eyes would be glued to the tv from christmas til new year’s, in between ransacking my mother’s closet, searchin for what santa got me.
