    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.

    For those of you that are fans of the 1979 Hanna-Barbera cartoon, The Super Globetrotters, that cartoon is almost ready to be released on DVD, through the Warner Archive Collection. Mention of its future release on DVD got out at this year's WonderCon. No date for its release has been set yet, but I wanted you all to know what is going on with this.

    As proof, I am providing you a picture of my Twitter conversation with Warner Archive about that. All I can hope for since this particular exchange dated June 24 is that nothing radical has happened to it that might delay its eventual release.

    The original "Harlem Globetrotters" cartoon series should deserve a DVD release as well. It is possible that permission had to be given from the Harlem Globetrotters organization and from the team members whose likenesses were used in both series.

    Of course, the folks at WAC told me they indeed had the go-ahead to work on the 1979 cartoon (I first asked them about it late in 2013)... otherwise I wouldn't have been given any of this news.
