    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.

    I know many cartoon characters will get green with envy, I know most bad guys will get that way and some who are considered friends.

    I know Donald and Daffy Duck can get envious, Daffy more so. I even think Drew Pickles Family gets envious as well.

    Any other good cartoon examples of envious characters?

    Plenty of examples of envy between siblings.
    Phillip's rivalry with his older brother was highlighted in an episode of Futurama.

    Yancy Fry vs Phillip J Fry
    Futurama
    Eps:Luck of the Fryish



    Eustace Bagge vs Horst Bagge
    Courage the Cowardly Dog
    Eps: Shirley the Medium

    Eustace deeply resented his older brother's great success.(this episode is also an example of Eustace's greed. Only his greed could've driven him to contact his long-estranged late brother.

    Second bananas are often very susceptible to this sin.One assassination away from the seat of power

    Starscream vs Megatron
    Transformers/Transformers:The Movie

    Grand Vizier Iznogoud vs the Caliph
    Iznogoud

    Grand Vizier Jafar vs The Sultan
    Aladdin

    -other examples-
    Richie Foley
    Static Shock
    Eps: Power Play

    Static's best friend Richie feels a tinge of envy and finds himself making a shady deal with a man who can give him temporary superpowers.

    Booster Gold
    JLU
    Eps:The Greatest Story Never Told

    Booster Gold is a hero who craves the spot-light, and envies the attention given to the big heroes. He's given yet another low-key duty during a massive battle, but soon he must stop a world-ending threat that has escaped the JL's attention.

    In the episode "Beauty is Only Smurf Deep" after finding out from her magic mirror that Vanity is the fairest in the world, the pixie princess Periwinkle sets out to kill him. Fortunately, since the two of them share similar interests, they end up becoming good friends instead and the other Smurfs arrive just in time to save their friend.

    Of course, Queen Grimhilde from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs gets envious when she finds out that Snow White is the fairest in the land and seeks to kill her. Earlier on, Snow White is forced to do menial labor for her, but what really gets the Queen upset is the day a handsome unnamed prince shows up to sing to her about how much he loves her.

    Lady Tremaine AKA the wicked stepmother from Disney's Cinderella is jealous of her stepdaughter's natural goodness and beauty--things her own daughters Drizella and Anastasia sorely lack. Cinderella is forced to be a kitchen maid for her stepfamily. Drizella and Anastasia don't behave any better towards Cinderella--although in the direct to video sequels, Anastasia does become a better person unlike her sister.

    More than anything else, it's envy of Mister Incredible, and by extension, superpowers as a whole that drives Syndrome to develop the Omnidroid series of hero killer robots in Pixar's The Incredibles. Really, he's already got an elaborate underground base and toys galore to play with. No, Syndrome wants to prove himself to the supers of the world; nay, he wishes to surpass them. "And when everyone's super ... no one will be."

    Alexandra Cabot wants what Josie's got: the hunky boyfriend and the successful pop-rock band. Many of Josie And The Pussycats' adventures were triggered by one of Alexandra's shenanigans to supplant Josie.

    "Yogi's Gang" had an episode called "The Envy Brothers," in which the title villains made the animals envious of one another.

    "Green With Jealousy," from the 80's iteration of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" had three of the turtles fighting over Irma after ingesting a love potion.

    Also, in "Battle Of The Planets," Jason was more than a little envious of Mark, often trying to do things on his own.
