Many people have been emailing us expressing their disappointment after purchasing the
Thundercats first DVD set.
Not only did we receive complaints concerning the poor quality of some
of the episodes, but it seems it also contained an entire episode with the background
music missing! Warner Bros. heard your voices, and quickly reissued the set with the missing
soundtrack intact. Unfortnately, the quality issue was not resolved, as Warner cites that
these were the best elements they could locate.
Rankin/Bass character designer and world renowned catoonist Paul Coker, Jr.
has recently produced some great art featuring R/B characters for The Deep Archives Gallery!
Not only can you view these fantastic Coker originals on the gallery's website (many more
than pictured here), they are all available for purchase as well! There are also many works
of art available by Rankin/Bass storyboard artist Don Duga!
Paul has created the look of many Rankin/Bass characters that we still endear year
after year - Frosty and Karen, the Miser Brothers, Winter Warlock, Bergermeister Meisterberger and more. You may also
recognize Paul's style from his years of work at Mad Magazine.
Rick Goldschmidt was recently interviewed again by RICHARD KNIGHT JR. for an article on THE CORPSE BRIDE for the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. He writes a column in their MOVIE GUIDE called OUT-TAKES and it will be in the SEPTEMBER 23rd CHICAGO TRIBUNE MOVIE GUIDE.
