    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.

Question about Popeye.

    Hi, first time poster long time fan of cartoons.

    I've had this one Popeye cartoon rattling around in my head for a while.

    It's when Popeye and Bluto, both in the navy, are targeted to be eaten or thrown in a volcano by a seductive demoness in the South Seas. She refers to Sailors as "long pig".

    Anyone remember this particular toon?

    Not knowing is figuratively killing me.

    Thanks for your time. ;)

    Would this be Alona on the Sarong Seas (1942)?

    Wow! those are two fantastic shorts! I love Olive Oyl 's interpretation of Dorothy Lamour! And the Woody & Buzz short is just wild!

    There is also a curious, if convoluted, link - the title Alona on the Sarong Seas is a play on that of the Paramount feature Aloma of the South Seas (1941, starring Lamour and Jon Hall), the 'erupting volcano' footage from which was reused in the 1952 Hope/Crosby/Lamour picture Road to Bali, the film that is parodied in the Woody Woodpecker short.
