RIP, Maurice Sendak

Posted By on Tue, May 8, 2012 at 7:59 AM

Maurice Sendak, considered one of the most important children's book artist of all time, has passed away at the age of 83. While I'm sure most remembrances of Mr. Sendak will justifiably focus on Where the Wild Things Are, the first work of his that I thought of this morning was Really Rosie, a musical based on three of Sendak's books. Courtesy of a scratchy YouTube upload, a portion of the animated special that aired on CBS in 1975 is above.
