This book documents an important milestone in American cultural history, the birth of the animated holiday special-Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carolªªª-and it's unsung creator, Lee Orgel. It tells the story of the artistically groundbreaking UPA animation studio, its decline and brief rebirth, which forever left its mark on television history. With the intersection of people like Walt Disney, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, Looney Tunes, Judy Garland, Robert Goulet, Woody Allen and of course, Mr. Magoo, it's a virtual who's who of mid-20th century pop culture. The book recounts the enormous tenacity and effort required to get the special sold and sponsored, let alone produced, and features rare production artwork and even rarer photos from the song recording sessions. Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol was the first animated Christmas special and paved the way for all future animated specials, like A Charlie Brown Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
