Chris, I think that you're confusing Bakshi's Lord of the Rings with
Rankin-Bass' versions of the Hobbit and Return of the King. Bakshi had
nothing to do with these, or other RB productions like Thundercats or
Silverhawks. As for D&D (Standing for Drek and Drek in my opinion, and I'm
a long time AD&D player), it was produced by Marvel Animation.

However, it is true that Rankin-Bass had a large number of Japanese
animation professionals on their staff, while Marvel's stuff was
subcontracted to Japan.
