I am the RANKIN/BASS Historian/Biographer Rick Goldschmidt and I wanted to keep things simple and easy to order my books and other cool RANKIN/BASS items. We have been on the internet now since 1997 (When my first book THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO was published) and we have always wanted to organize all of the RANKIN/BASS items into one place…THANKS to my friend Wes Garlatz, we have done just that!

Miser Brothers - Rankin/Bass Characters

I have devoted much of my life to giving credit to ARTHUR RANKIN, JR. and JULES BASS. RANKIN/BASS PRODUCTIONS included a group of wonderful and talented people such as PAUL COKER, JR., MAURY LAWS, DON DUGA, JACK DAVIS, BILLIE MAE RICHARDS, BERNARD COWAN and the list goes on.

This STORE FRONT will include information and items celebrating this wonderful cast of people! When you place an order here, it will get my direct attention and I can dedicate or customize any order that you place. Just email me at , if you have any questions. We are now offering my books in a digital format on KINDLE for the first time ever and I will do my best to keep them in paper print as well (THANKS to Wes and Joan Garlatz and Arthur Rankin, Jr.!).

In the past few years, I have written RANKIN/BASS’ MAD MONSTER PARTY and the 15th Anniversary of THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO (both beautifully designed by Wes) and couldn’t be happier with them!

So, Pull up an iceberg and lend an ear and enjoy this STOREFRONT! We are also incorporating an exciting MEDIA PAGE with audio interviews, video, articles and fun!
