    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 noticed that the themes of the two separate animated series during the 1983-84 season share some similarities:

    "Journey to the Pac-Past" shared the same theme as Richie Rich's "Richie Hood" - both those segments involve a time machine.

    "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Pac-Man" and The Little Rascals' "Wash and Werewolf" both involve a werewolf theme.

    "Computer Packy" and the final new Richie Rich segment "Computo" - both involve characters being transported into computers.

    "Around the World in 80 Chomps" and Richie's "Ends of the Earth" (the final appearance of Jackie Jokers) both involve world travels.

    "Super Pac vs. Pac-Ape" and the rebroadcast of Richie's "The Giant Ape Caper" both involve an ape.

    On an unrelated note, the rebroadcast of the Rascals' "Cap'n Spanky's Showboat" and the beginning of the rebroadcast of Richie's "The Giant Ape Caper" both involve a riverboat.

    Yes, Hanna-Barbera reused plot elements, and even entire plots, in its cartoons as far back as The Huckleberry Hound Show. For example, the Pixie & Dixie short "Jinks' Mice Device" was a retread of the MGM Tom & Jerry theatrical short "The Invisible Mouse".
