I would like to thank him for all the stop-motion Christmas specials & animated films & shows such as "The Hobbit" and, of course, "Thundercats".

Heard lots of good stuff about Rankin Bass. Plus they contributed to the birth of Studio Ghibli. R I P to a man that made my childhood just a little bit more awesome.  Crying or Very sad

I remember watching "Ballad of Smokey the Bear" one time on TV when I was a kid.
