Did You Know?


This cartoon became an annual tradition on Chicago TV station WGN-TV. It was first shown there on 18 December 1956, and is still shown there, though not on the "Bozo the Clown" show, which has since gone off the air. The date on which it made its debut on WGN occasionally causes confusion over the date that this cartoon was made; some web sources list it as being made in 1956, but this is incorrect. See more »

Hardrock, Coco, and Joe: The Three Little Dwarfs is a charming stop-motion holiday short
13 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The Hill and Range song publishing company, which also licensed UPA animation to film shorts of songs "Peter Cottontail" and "Frosty the Snowman" that became staples of kids' shows on Chicago TV, asked a stop-motion company named Centaur Productions to make one of Santa's elves that are the names in the title above. The chorus, which sing with no musical accompaniment, tell of their travels with the big red-suited man as he goes on his holiday rounds. Wonderful visualization that captures the song perfectly. By the way, the head of Centaur was a man named Wah Ming Chang who would later work on some Disney projects as well on George Pal's Tom Thumb. He would also design Elizabeth Taylor's jewels and headdress in Cleopatra and some "Star Trek" props like the communicators and, in one episode, Tribbles. Definitely worth a look.
