    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.

Do kids still watch old Hanna-Barbera cartoons? (Flintstones, Top Cat, Jetsons, Tom & Jerry, etc)

    Aside from the Flintstones being the mascot for Fruity Pebbles cereal, do your kids know who old school Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters (pre-1970s) like the Flintstones, Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Top Cat, or Tom and Jerry are?

    As a kid growing up in the 1990s, those cartoons were already 30-50 years old. The only time I ever watched them was when I was sent to my grandma's house to be babysat, where there were no toys to entertain myself with. I never found the shows to be particularly interesting or enjoyable, it's just there was nothing else on or I had nothing to do.

    I feel like with today's technology (especially YouTube and streaming services), kids don't ever have to watch something just because they are bored and nothing else is on. They never have to watch Secret Squirrel or Wally Gator because there's nothing else to do.

    The only older (pre-1970s) Hana-Barbera cartoons I can see kids today watching would be Scooby Doo, but that's only because it keeps getting modern reboots every few years. But I don't know any young people, maybe I'm wrong. Do your kids watch the older Hanna-Barbera cartoons?
