    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.

Hello All... Introduction and a quick WB Music Question.

    'Evening all, and Hello! I'm a long time cartoon fan that was on a couple of the old animation Usenet groups, but have been enjoying cartoons all my life. Just found this forum. Didn't see a "Introduce yourself" sub forum so I'll do it here, and ask my first question. I have all the LT DVD Collections 1-6, and the GALT LaserDisc series (including the one the one that has "Bugs Bunny N*** the N***" on it).

    FTR, I'm a strong believer in preserving those cartoons that may be considered "politically incorrect" these days. They are part of the country's history and reflect the mode of the country at the time they were produced. Future generations need to know what things were like. One of my longer term wish is that Turner (I think he owns them now) will go ahead and release the "Censored 11" onto a DVD with all the notes on their origin, etc. etc. In some cases, I think it is a disservice to censor the cartoon. Take "Coal Black & the Seben Dwarves," for example. Many of the voice actors and musicians were African American at a time when many producers would not consider hiring them to do cartoon voices or play music. To me, it's a shame that their talents can't be heard because it might seem offensive to some. Put the shorts on DVD and let people decide if they wish to buy them or not.

    Now, my question. I am attempting to locate a Bugs Bunny short (an older one) in which a certain music was played. For the longest time, I did not know the name of the music piece but, today, I discovered it's identity. Everyone knows that Bugs has a connection to Franz Von Suppe in re: the "Baton Bunny" short (i.e. "Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna"). The Von Suppe piece re: my question is the "Light Cavalry March Overtrure," which I sample as follows:



    Fast forward to 02:29 in the above video to find the part used in the Bugs Bunny short. In this short, Bugs is acting as a train engineer in an older Steam Locomotive (with the classic "head out the window" pose, wesring the neckerchief and blowing the whistle, etc.).

    Just wondering if anyone can help me identify that short.

    Thanks, and I hope to contribute much to the forum!

    That is from Hair-Raising Hare. Here is the scene.

    I too can confirm that "Hair-Raising Hare" is the short that you're looking for that contains that piece of music.
    Also, welcome to the forum. I too am a strong believer of preserving the "politically incorrect" shorts for the very same reasons. Also, truth be told, while yes, these shorts were definitely politically incorrect and certainly offensive in today's world, most of them were undeniably hilarious. I consider "Coal Black and De Seben Dwarfs" to be an unseen classic--out of the "Censored 11" this is the one that deserves to be seen because it is a brilliant work of art in my opinion, censorship be damned.

    And we have a winner! Thank you both! I should have remembered this short for a number of different reasons... The first appearance of the "orange monster" (and, no I don't want to open that "Pandora's Box" in re: its name.... :eek: :D). Second, I had forgotten that the scene of my concern (train engineer) opens with the trumpet fanfare from Wagner's "Tannhauser - Entrance of the Guests..." And, although Bugs wasn't actually in a "steam locomotive," well.... close enough! :D

    Thanks much! Look forward to continued contributions.
