The Classic, Musical CBS Christmas Message, Designed by R.O. Blechman, and Shown for Years (1966)

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

I am overjoyed that InklingStudio has posted this Christmas message to youtube. When I was a boy, CBS aired this message every year. I must have run for at least ten years. Maybe they’ll bring it out of storage, and run it again. One can always hope. But until then, we’ve got youtube!

Can you believe that there once was a time when network television aired classy holiday interstitials like this?

Designed by R.O. Blechman and animated by Willis Pyle. Beautiful, hand-drawn pen & ink drawings. Music arranged by Arnie Black.
