    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.

Creepy, Kooky, And Animated.

    I was never a true fan of "The Addams Family." When it came to peculiar clans, I preferred "The Munsters," and Hanna-Barbera's own creations, The J. Evils, the Gruesomes/Creeplies, and The Frankenstones.

    But when H-B produced an animated series about The Addams Family a year after their guest spot on "The New Scooby-Doo Movies," I decided to give it the onceover. Both of these showed the family doing things you'd expect from them, like literally digging to China in a sandbox, dancing to "The Funeral March," and showing pleasure instead of fear when lured into a snake pit. Seeing them on the road, on a sea cruise, and taking part in a hot air balloon race I found more entertaining than the live action show. And just like the Gruesomes and Creeplies, they had a pet octopus, namely Ocho. I believe he was the one who "played" with Gomez in the swamp, and he and Morticia decided to adopt him.
    Then, years later, in 1992, H-B produced a second series about them, following the previous year's live action movie. I never saw this new version, so there's nothing I can say. Just that they obviously went on being "Creepy, Kooky, Freaky, and Ookie."

    I heard the original name for Gomez Addams was Ripelli...a play-on word for repel.
