Rankin's credits read like a Hall Of Fame of holiday specials:
Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, A Year Without A Santa Claus, Frosty The Snowman, Here Comes Peter Cottontail, Twas The Night Before Christmas, and many more.
As we said years ago in our introductory post, we grew up in the 70s-early 80s, the "classic era" of tv specials. Our Christmas seasons would not have been the same without Rankin's contributions and it's doubtful this blog would exist without the aforementioned specials.
