    Animation Legend Arthur Rankin Jr. Dies at 89

    Arthur Rankin Jr., the animator, producer and director behind the whimsical holiday stop-motion TV specials Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, has died. He was 89.
    Rankin died Thursday at his home by Harrington Sound in Bermuda, The Royal Gazette newspaper reported.

    In the early 1960s, Rankin and Jules Bass founded the film production company Videocraft International (now called Rankin/Bass Productions). Their stop-motion, cel-animated features were painstaking to make and known for their doll-like characters.
