    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.

The Mystery Cartoon Character Game, now with 20% more ongoing.

    I checked this list, too, and she wasn't on it ... yet. Now she is, because that's the Mystery Character. Got to complete that set, y'know? Good solving, Em. :D

    Thanks, OUB. Now to go into the land of obscurity for this untapped one:

    1. Instead of cereals and junk food, I promote a citrus product.

    2. Like so many other mascots, I try to help myself to the goodies.

    3. Unfortunately, my ads and I were extinct by the end of the '70's.

    Hmm, I almost know this one, but not quite. The period is correct for Tang, a powdered drink mix with artificial orange flavor, said to be part of NASA's space program menu. I know that Bugs Bunny used to shill for this stuff, but I've forgotten any other little green men that likely made it as Tang's regular mascot.

    Sorry, OUB, but your answer's wrong. I'll provide three more clues tomorrow if no one gets it by then.

    Last three clues:

    4. I'm a prehistoric reptile.

    5. My products are solid citrus fruits.

    6. Their name shouldn't be confused with a specific brand of tuna.

    Golly, I learn new stuff everyday. The citrus growers of Florida banded together into consortium to pitch their goods under the brand name Sunkist. Someone at Disney Studios came up with a cartoon mascot for them: the Florida Orange Bird. It has the body of the Sixties Woody Woodpecker hued orange, long green leaves for wings, and a Valencia orange for a head. There used to be a Sunkist juice bar in the Disney park that stood for thirty years; it's now a bakery. Awesome recollection, Em, my compliments.

    Sorry, OUB, but the Florida Orange Bird doesn't qualify as a prehistoric reptile. If no one gets it by tonight, I'll provide the answer.

    Well, here's the answer. It's Ralph, the Sunkist Dinosaur. His ads often showed him trying to get himself Sunkist oranges. Sometimes he did, and sometimes he didn't.

    Oh. A dinosaur. Pitching oranges? The odd little bird kind of makes sense: oranges grow on trees while birds nest in trees. But a dinosaur? The only thing they can pitch is gasoline; think Dinoco from Toy Story. And they named him Ralph. Sunkist must've hired a discount-rate ad firm for that one.
