Rankin/Bass love

Nothing sums up my childhood Christmas memories like the beloved Rankin/Bass Christmas specials. Most of us who grew up in the U.S. during the 70's and 80's have a very soft spot for these stop motion animations. They also have some of the best songs ever. I don't think there will ever be a Christmas where we won't watch Rudolph or Santa Clause is Comin' to Town. It's been a real treat for me to share these movies with little g. this year since she's caught on to the whole Christmas thing for the first time.

I'm guessing about this but I think it was about 5 years ago when the movies and figures started appearing in the stores. We have some of the Rudolph characters for under the tree. They look really cute there except they don't seem to stay there for long. c.
