    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.

    Here's a jump ball:
    This character made a one-time-only appearance in a Beany and Cecil cartoon. I don't know the episode and I'm not sure of his name (Beeping Tom, I think), but he was plenty memorable. He flew about in a teapot-sized flying saucer and spoke in rebuses—that is, a word balloon filled with pictographs (not unlike E-cons) would act as subtitles to his clipped, presumably alien, speech pattern. A super idea that I've never seen anywhere else (leave it to Clampett!). Anybody know who he is and where he comes from?
    best to all,

    Two times in fact. BEEPING TOM and some other episode. Had a speeded-up voice a al Alvin the chimpmunk.

    Beany and Cecil had lots of odd voice traits (including in the famous RAG MOP episode speeded up chipmunks out of Cecil and the two dogs that DJ the DJ hires-the one with Gigi the Poodsble). Cecil's own voice was hilarious and William Shakespere Wolf had a puppet show concurrently with Cecil in the 1950s, voiced (a la Hans Conreid) by Walker Edmiston.

    A lot of the jokes were pop culture parodies and as I've said, often the outdated references are even funnier if only since they are more challenging..to figure out.

    It was "Ain't I a Little Stinger?" It was a funny Beany and Cecil episode. I remember that is where Dishonest John dressed like a beetle to capture Beepin' Tom. My favorite part was the song Dishonest John sang in the tune of "Camptown Races". It was a classic cartoon. It was released on Volume 9 of the Beany and Cecil VHS collection from Columbia Tristar Home Video (as part of the "Magic Window" series).

    Wm.Shakespeare (retsaining the Hans Conreid voice by Walker Edmiston) carried over to the cartoons: "NEVER EAT GRAHAM CRACKERS IN BED" & "RIN TIN CAN".Beeping Tom's other traits were singing what were two of Bob Clampett's favorites, ABC/Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The Vienna Woods (Not heard here but elsewhere was yet another public domain Clampett fave, Oh! Sussannah!(, and talking in rebus-which Clampett gave credits with (storyboards, paints,etc. with matching people in those departments.).
