    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.

    Okay, i'll start this thread with this:

    What literally bothers me in the Disney cartoons in the late 1940s - early 1950s is the way Jack Kinney would handle Goofy in the aforementioned period, for starters he was oftentimes unpleasantly called Geroge G. Geef, more often than not, he lacked his main characteristic buck teeth, and sometimes he literally had no ears whatsoever, which made look really hideously deranged and excessively demented, his personality is the same way too, instead of being the clumsily gullible and extremely stupid silly goofster, he's this bland, unlikable, obnoxious, and really lousy and his voice is just as off and inconsistent, i'd seriously doubt that was Pinto Colvig doing Goofy's voice there, it's this artless, sterile, and very inept sounding sound-alike (no so humble educated guess: Dal McKennon?).

    As far as Goofy's concerned, It also bothers me (mostly as a kid) the fact that Goofy (more like Geroge Geef's) wife's entire face and top was never ever shown, that is about as bothersome as always only showing the bottom halves of the Mom and Dad in the forgettable (just IMHO) Cow and Chicken and speaking of which had also made fun of this exact same routine by just depicting the as legs while they were at it as well.

    Either the guys at Disney thought that Geef's wife was human in the same manner as the detailed ones like in Snow White, maybe masking the entire facial area may have been necessary just to avoid high budget costs or EITHER Geef's wife was drawn exactly like Goofy with lipstick and gloss and had more or less the exact same personality as Goofy did, Maybe Walt thought she was pretty ugly that way and so decided to do the aforementioned like that.

    Meanwhile other questions and replies are WELCOME!!!
