The album was issued on vinyl (both mono and stereo versions) on Columbia Records in 1966.[1] In 2006 the album had an extremely limited release (200 copies) by Percepto Records, which included three demos for unproduced Rankin-Bass films and a lengthy interview with composer Maury Laws conducted by author/historian Rick Goldschmidt.[2] The album cover was slightly altered on the Percepto release and the original liner notes were omitted.

Aside from the title tune, performed by Robert Goulet, it is unclear who provided the vocals on the songs, as the rest are credited to the film's characters rather than the actors who voiced them (and in several instances the singing voices sound nothing like the actors' speaking voices).
