wrote some of the most popular holiday (mostly Christmas) specials of all time for Rankin/Bass
, including Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
, The Little Drummer Boy
, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
(bonus Justin Bieber version
with Animagic!), Jack Frost
, and Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey.
The very last special he wrote was Noel
, based on a story he told on the radio every year at Christmas. It aired just days before his death on December 30th, 1992. Another special, called The Twelve Days of Christmas
, aired in 1993, and was based on a story by him, but was written by someone else. [more inside]
