The Little Drummer Boy was produced by Rankin/Bass Productions, who made so many of our other Christmas specials.

The special is based on the 1941 song where the drummer boy plays for the Christ child.

The special premiered on December 19, 1968, on NBC.  The following year a sequel was produced and shown. It is called The Little Drummer Boy, Book II.  In this special the drummer boy, struggles to protect a bell maker’s silver bells from being seized by Roman soldiers.
