Thundercats Fans Rejoice!

There are some Projects in the works with RANKIN/BASS' THUNDERCATS! A live-action Feature Film is in some stage of pre-production, and a direct-to-video animated THUNDERCATS Project is being discussed as well. Details will be forthcoming.

We recommended COMIC BOOK legend and friend of RANKINBASS.COM...ALEX ROSS for the Live-Action Character design. He did a THUNDERCATS VS. BATTLE OF THE PLANETS cover (Pictured here) for WIZARD MAGAZINE #138 to GREAT effect! (Click the pic to visit Alex's website!)

Rankin/Bass On VH1?

Yes! It's true! Rankin/Bass was featured in VH1's 100 Music Moments That Rocked TV which aired throughout the week of January 12th to the 18th of this year! Number 52 highlighted the talents of R/B songwriters Maury Laws and Jules Bass. It was none other than "The Heat Miser" song from the R/B holiday favorite The Year Without a Santa Claus! See, Rankin/Bass Rocks!

Another Rare Stop-Motion
Figure Surfaces!

We proudly present these wonderful pics of one of the few surviving Rankin/Bass "puppets" - "Father Time"! This character is from Rudolph's Shiny New Year and was voiced by legendary comic actor Red Skelton. From the private collection of David Scheve, time certainly has been kind to "Father"! He appears to have held up quite nicely over the years! Check out our January News for a link to David's online gallery! (Photos courtesy of David Scheve.)
