    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.

    This is one of my all-time favorite Tex Avery cartoons, and thanks, bmode, for the images that are usually censored (or always) on TV. I wish I could find more images of Magical Maestro, but they're too small. If only they put these cartoons on DVD. A Tex Avery cartoon DVD would be nice, but for now I'm using VHS (Tex Avery's Screwball Classics).

    This cartoon came out in the early 50's; but I'm wondering... did UPA release "The Magic Fluke" (a cartoon with a somewhat similar story-line, starring the Fox and Crow) a year or two earlier?

    ~ Hey, Zavkram!

    You are correct! UPA released the Fox and Crow cartoon "The Magic Fluke" in 1949. Already the production values had improved noticably over earlier Columbia releases. Although the two cartoons have similar premises, the appropriation of a magicians magic wand, the story-lines are quite different. The pacing for the UPA cartoon is pretty slow and steady. Nobody can match the lighting fast action in a Tex Avery cartoon!
