Hi all,

I just ran across this story, but it's a couple of weeks old, so maybe others have noted it. Jules Bass, one half of the Rankin/Bass directing/producing team, passed away on October 25 at the age of 87. Rankin/Bass were notable for many hand-drawn and stop-motion animated tv specials, series, and movies, including most of the Christmas specials many of us grew up with (Rudolf, Here Comes Santa Clause, Frosty, etc) and, of course, the animated Hobbit and Return of the Rings. Lift your glass in remembrance.
