    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.

    I was wondering, when did The Get Along Gang cartoon series last air in reruns in the U.S.? I know that CBS dropped the show in 1986 in favor of Richie Rich, but was there a rerun network in the U.S. that aired such show, and if so, when did it last air?

    I did find a few high-quality 11-minute shorts on YouTube, but not all 26 of the shorts exist on such site. But at least, as far as I know, there are more The Get Along Gang shorts than there are animated Little Rascals shorts!

    "The Get Along Gang's " first tv season of 13 half hour shows (2-10 minute episodes per half hour or 26 total stories) was from 1984 to 1985 with reruns airing from January to June 1986 all on CBS. The Gang's reruns later replaced "Ulysses 31" in the syndicated weekend block series "Kideo TV" with episodes of the "Popples" and "Rainbow Brite" around Spring 1987 until September 1987.

    The Family Channel cable channel may have picked up the Gang reruns for broadcast in the late 1980s to early 1990s (my local cable provider did not carry the Family Channel at that time but I did see some sources mentioning it)

    The PAX (now ION) Network aired individual Gang rerun stories as part of the Christian-based "Cloud 9" children series around 1999. "Cloud 9" ran for a few months in Fall 1999 and was replaced by the half hour "Gang" and "Sylvanian Families" cartoon series reruns until early 2001 (I think) before the time slots were given to local PAX affiliate stations for infomercials or local programming.

    The complete Get Along Gang series were released in two DVD sets:

    The first ten half hours:

    The Nelvana Studios-produced pilot episode special (the half hour long "scavenger hunt" story with 12 Gang kids) was not part of the DIC-produced episode package and not released on DVD. Karl-Lorimar home Video released the pilot episode on VHS tape.

    The Nelvana special premiered in April 1984 on the Nickelodeon cable channel and on local tv stations around the US at various dates and times. The special was also shown on the Showtime pay-cable network after the CBS tv series run ended in the mid-1980s.

    The entire run of DiC episodes was released by Mill Creek Entertainment on region 1 DVD in late 2016. (No extras unfortunately). The T.V. special remains unreleased on DVD but is available online and the VHS version turns up for sale now and then at a certain online emporium.
