Rankin & Bass Hobbit Sketches

I have always loved Rankin & Bass's animated version of the hobbit. I watched it before I read the books, and well before Peter Jackson ever got ahold of Tolkien. The animation was choppy and simple, but the narrative quality immersed me into their world. They used very few frames of animation to tell the story, and their line work was classically artistic.
