R.I.P. Producer Arthur Rankin, Jr.

Animation Legend Arthur Rankin Jr. Dies at 89

I don’t know how his stop-motion productions look to people who are used to the computer-assisted animation of movies such as Toy Story and The Incredibles. Do they look crude by comparison or does their charm still enchant viewers?

All I know is that when they originally aired as specials, they really were special.

Rankin’s business partner, Jules Bass, is apparently still alive.

They were a hell of a team.
