    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.

    And here are the long-awaited closing credits for the Melvin Danger episode of Love, American Style. While it was the last of the two animated segments H-B had made for this Paramount Television-produced, ABC-broadcast TV series, it was the first to air (on 1/28/1972), initially under the title "Melvin Danger, Private Eye." Richard Dawson (Hogan's Heroes, Family Feud) provided the voice for the main character.

    A re-edited version aired 3/16/1973 as "Love and the Private Eye." Despite not making it into a proper series retaining the Melvin Danger character, it may have inspired H-B's own similar series Inch High, Private Eye (for NBC), however, just as "Love and the Old-Fashioned Father" inspired Wait Till Your Father Gets Home which aired in first-run syndication seven months after that pilot was first broadcast on ABC.

    Richard Dawson as Melvin Danger with a Humphrey Bogart voice
    Lennie Weinrib as Williams, Melvin Danger's British assistant who looked and sounded like actor Terry-Thomas.
    Mitzi McCall as Tangerine, Melvin Danger's underappreciated but loyal office secretary
    Robert Holt as Mr. Hammond, Danger's client and later murder victim
    Cynthia Adler as Hammond's secretary who was the culprit in murdering Hammond
    John Stephenson as a police detective and as one of Hammond's executives who also was bumped off by Hammond's secretary.
