Restoring Santa and Rudolph

Restoring Santa

The boys and girls at one of my favorite stop-motion studios, Screen Novelties, were recently assigned an unlikely task: restoring the original (and now dilapidated) puppets used in the production of the 1964 Rankin/Bass holiday classic RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER. There’s a documentation of the puppet restoration (restored by Robin Walsh) along with plenty of photos posted on the Screen Novelties blog. The puppets are currently on display at Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts.
