Rankin/Bass Productions, Inc. was an American production company, known for its seasonal television specials, particularly its work in stop motion animation. 

Rankin/Bass stop-motion features are recognizable by their visual style of doll-like characters with spheroid body parts, and ubiquitous powdery snow using an animation technique called "Animagic." 

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" first aired Sunday, December 6, 1964 and became one of the most popular and longest-running Christmas specials in television history.
