Phil Postma Presents An Alternate 1977 Rankin-Bass’ ‘The Hobbit’ !

The Hobbit - Rankin and Bass
We all know that Rankin and Bass in 1977 went with cell animation for their wonderful TV movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’. Though thanks to the very talented Phil Postma we get to witness an alternate version where they went with their usual stop motion style of animation.
