When I was a kid, American illustrator R.O. Blechman’s animated Christmas greetings used to play on CBS and a few other stations. Here are a few I can remember playing at Christmas time. Even as a small child, I can remember being completely hypnotized by his spare lines and the way sound effects were employed to fill in the un-drawn details.
Happy Christmas, everyone!
Here’s Blechman’s famous Alka Seltzer commercial. Not very Christmasy, but it’s still his most iconic work, and very clever.
And just to bring it back to Christmas, here’s “The Lord’s Bright Blessing (and Razzleberry Dressing)” from “Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol.” Enjoy!
