In 1980 after finding and doing my first T Snowmobile I contacted Rankin/bass productions
creators of SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN (aired
Dec 13 1970) and was able to get in contact with the artest Paul Coker of Lawrence Kansas and found out that he had never seen one. He also stated that he didn't have any of the orig.art work or plates. If any one knows where any might be let me know. (This is a plastic creation now being produced,I have no intrest with them.)
This post is to wish all of you and you'r families.
A MARRY CHISTMAS AND THE HAPPIEST OF NEW YEARS
The mail man looks kind of like Bing Crosby!
It was supposed to be Fred Astaire but it looks like Stan Laurel to me.
He looks a little like Bing, a little like Fred, a bit like Stan, & alot like the mail man. I think he is modeled after my mail man.
Looks to be a prop from an older animated Christmas 'toon..... Fred Astaire may have done the voice for the mailman IMHP.... memory serves me right ???
1970 Santa Claus is coming to town.
See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jQy_ppY2bI around 1:54, he's driving the snowmobile in a small parade.
Thanks for posting.
