    NOTE: Two others, Santa, Baby! and Frosty Returns, are not included in this set, since they were not directed or produced by the Rankin/Bass duo (Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr.). ("Santa, Baby!" is a Rankin/Bass Production, however Jules Bass was not involved and Arthur Rankin Jr. only served as Executive Producer.) (Also, there's been some confusion about Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol and why it's not included in this set. Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol was not a Rankin/Bass production, even though it was indeed included on previous Rankin/Bass DVD/Blu-ray sets, but that could have simply been an error from Universal Studios home video.)
