Also Arthur Rankin, Jr.  Part of the Rankn/Bass producers of many annimation greats. 

Rankin Bass produced The Hobbit in annimation back in 1977. My boys still love to watch this, even though they are in their 20's.

Most others will remember such great as 'Rudolpf the Red Nosed Reindeer'.

Maria Von Trapp  the last member of the Von Trapp family, has passed away aged 99.

I dount there is one of us here that has not seen The Sound of Music at least once. Even my boys, in their early 20's, love to watch it on DVD.
