    The Barker Magazine must have been very popular as it made the headlines on Rankin & Bass in 2002 and that website is in its seventh year

    to respond to Lee’s comment, the Rankin/Bass company was great for information about the claymation movie of Charlie and Mortimer, but it came at the time of Edgar’s death and the project was put on the shelf. somewhere, someone has these claymation figures, now these are great treasures for the owner
