From a 1977 Newsday, the debut of "The Hobbit," which featured very little CGI. It was made by Rankin/Bass, and even scripted by Romeo Muller, scribe of Rudolph and other stop-motion Christmas stalwarts. This film did not turn into the annual presentation the producers had hoped for.

Thanks to that adaptation of the "Hobbit" (and my pot smoking dad) I became a life long Tolkein fan. Which meant every Christmas I dragged my wife to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films.

Good thing it won all those Oscars or I would have looked like a nerd.
