    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Disney To Feast In France

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

100K!

    Wow. It has finally happened. The Big Cartoon DataBase hit 100,000 entries earlier today. At 10:44 Mountain Time, I entered and approved "The Clouds Roll By", episode 1A from the Scholastic Entertainment series "I Spy", which is now officially the 100,000th cartoon entered into the Big Cartoon DataBase.

    I remember when we just got to about 20,000, and thinking how unattainable one hundred thousand would be.... and now we are there. I am still a bit amazed, and my head is still swimming.

    We would not be here without the users... without your interest in cartoons, we would never have even hit 20K. Really, the DataBase got started because of users asking questions. You kept asking, we kept growing. So we are here because it is what you wanted. Over the years, we have added more to make things more usable for you- image galleries, more detailed information, and earlier this year, even videos. We have responded to your requests, like breaking down cartoons into seasons... that was added earlier this year, too. So I hope we are responsive to your needs.

    I also appreciate all the input to the DataBase we have gotten from users- from correcting credits to adding new cartoons; from minutia and factoids to complete synopsis. Thanks- we are all the better for your submissions.

    But there are a couple users I really need to call out, because we would not be at 100K without them. Charles Brubaker (http://bakertoons.blogspot.com/)- has not only added innumerable cartoons to the DB, but he is a completist. We have full credits for many cartoons because of his diligence and submissions. And Bruce, the title card crazy man. We have a much more enjoyable site because of all the title images you have submitted over the years.

    But without Ethan, I might as well have packed it in years ago. To say he is my right hand man is to slight right hands everywhere. Many of you see and are informed by his daily news posts. This alone makes his contributions invaluable. What you do not see are the hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of submissions he has made behind the scenes. In fact, the 100,000th entry to the DataBase was submitted by Ethan. And I think I have another 1000 sitting in my inbox to add! But it is Ethan's fascination with death that provides me the most fun- not a person even remotely connected to animation can pass without Ethan's eagle Eye noting and posting about it. So for all these things- and many more- Thank You Ethan.

    So, what next? Simple: 200K!

    Again, thank you to all who have gotten BCDB to this point. Now, back to work- I have more cartoons to enter.

    It's kind of ironic that the "The Clouds Roll By" was the marker for 100K! Time does roll by! I remember years back when I would submit those huge emails with like 25 title cards attach to it!

    Sure you can thank us all for contributing Dave, but you're the man who's vision, time and dedication got us there! So thank you for making it possible.
