    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 want to start a thread about all those Public Domain DVDs and VHS tapes cartoon collections out there.

    I'll begin with Delta's Felix the Cat (2004):

    Felix in Hollywood
    Felix Doubles for Darwin

    Felix Goes West
    Felix Finds Out
    Felix All Puzzled
    Felix Monkeys with Magic
    Felix Gets the Can
    A Felix Comic
    The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg
    Neptune Nonsense
    The first eight cartoons are B&W and silent with music cues added. All show their age in film quality. Most of the distress is at the begining of each cartoon and gets better as the cartoon progresses. Still, there is some distress thoughout the length of each of these cartoons.

    The last two are poor copies of these original color cartoons from the Van Beuren Studio. Better copies are available on other PD collections.

    If the present compilation had consisted of all-silent, B&W cartoons I wouldn't be so disappointed with this DVD. It's the bad copies of the two color cartoons that really let me down!

    As promised, here is the first of what I hope will be many "Cheap Reviews" here in the Animated Word. Dr. Cyclops' first review from last March can be found here. I will be adding as many of his previous reviews here as I can over the next few weeks, while he begins to compile some new material for the AW. As the good Doctor is not currently a moderator in the Big Cartoon Forum, he has consented to my copying his older material so that it may posted here on his behalf:
