Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol: The Making of the First Animated Christmas Special

Author: Darrell Van Citters

If you grew up watching the annual network broadcast of this celebrated hour-long animated holiday special, Darrell van Citters’ loving and comprehensive book will bring back happy memories. The author is an animator whose credits range from Who Framed Roger Rabbit to a…

to a Bugs Bunny short. He’s always loved this UPA show and has spent years interviewing people associated with it (and collecting original artwork); his book is an obvious labor of love, an uncommonly handsome hardcover lavishly illustrated with production artwork, sketches, backgrounds, layout drawings, and behind the scenes photos. I was pleased to contribute an introduction after reading the text, but I never expected it to appear in such an attractive volume. For more information, a peek at the contents, and details about purchasing a copy, go to the book's dedicated website. (Oxberry Press)
