The Original Hobbit Movie

In honor of the Desolation of Smaug’s release, here’s a clip from the under appreciated 1977 Rankin/Bass classic animated version of The Hobbit.

This next scene is from the chapter “Riddles in the Dark”. This version of Gollum gave me horrible nightmares as a kid. And last night…

Finally, the song that will have you trying to imitate the fastest vibrato you’ll ever hear. Sure, this is from the Rankin/Bass animated version of Return of the King, but it is too good to be left off this post.

“Frodo of the nine fingers! And the ring of doom! Why does he have nine fingers? Where is the ring of doom?”
