ATLANTA, October 2006. Two original stop-motion puppets from the 1964 Rankin/Bass TV special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer are making a stop at the Center for Puppetry Arts Museum for five weeks only, December 8, 2006 – January 13, 2007.
“The hand-crafted, three-dimensional puppets of stop-motion films possess a kind of warmth and charm that standard cartoon characters drawn on celluloid just don’t have,” says Alan Louis, the Center’s Director of Museum and Education Programs. “Rankin/Bass called their technique ‘Animagic’ for a reason. Rudolph’s enduring popularity for over 40 years is a testament to the magical quality the show has always had. Visitors to this exhibit will have a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with a phenomenon of TV animation history. I’m thrilled that the Center is the first museum in the world to exhibit these puppets. Up until now, they have only made a few brief appearances at toy industry trade shows.”
