    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.

    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.

    Is it true that when Hanna-Barbera's cartoons were released on VHS through Worldvision Home Video from 1986-1987 and then by Hanna-Barbera Home Video from 1987-1992, that there were at least two 30-minute shows per volume?

    For example:
    Scooby and Scrappy-Doo, Volume 3 (Worldvision Home Video #V1042; H-B Home Video #HB1042), released in 1986 (despite the 1985 copyright info on the Worldvision issue) contains the season 1 (1979-80) episodes "The Demon of the Dugout" (aired 11/3/79) and "The Hairy Scare of the Devil Bear" (released 11/10/79). But when the first episode ends, there are no opening or closing credits. One opening title is seen (which opens the first episode) and one closing title is seen (at the close of the last episode).
    Episodes in this video:
    The Demon of the Dugout (original open and title; no credits)
    The Hairy Scare of the Devil Bear (no open; original title and credits)

    Jonny Quest (Worldvision Home Video #V1083; H-B Home Video #HB1083)
    Episodes in this video:
    Mystery of the Lizard Men (original open and title; no credits)
    The Curse of the Anubis (no open; original title and credits)

    Worldvision Home Video was distributor of H-B shows on VHS from 1986-1987 and then H-B Home Video formed in 1987. H-B Home Video started out as a Worldvision-distributed imprint until 1989, at which point Great American Broadcasting (the then owner of both H-B and Worldvision) was going through severe financial turmoil, which forced them to sell off Worldvision to famed TV mogul Aaron Spelling (1923-2006) and then the next year H-B was also sold off by GAB, to Ted Turner.

    If anyone can think of any websites out there with a complete list as to what H-B cartoons were released on Worldvision Home Video and H-B Home Video and what episodes from these shows are available on the VHS tapes issued by these two companies, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Ben (ScoobyDoo1976)
