The People Involved

Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass produced the TV series The Tales of the Wizard of Oz starting in 1961.  This lead to the first prime-time network sequel to the famous MGM film on NBC's "The General Electric Fantasy Hour" in 1964 Return to Oz, just prior to their landmark TV Special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Oz has found it's way into many of their productions over the years and Rick will speak about this and other things Rankin/Bass.

Expect some rare clips and bring your questions regarding their work. Rick also will sign his four books at the event and show a small collection of his Oz material to the event, including Romeo Muller's original Return to Oz script.
