    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.

If H-B Did a Line of Cartoon Shorts in 1976...

    Call me crazy, but what would your thoughts be as to whether or not the boys at Hanna-Barbera (including Jabberjaw and Dynomutt, Dog Wonder's two creators, Joe Ruby and Ken Spears) ever decided to create a new round of cartoon shorts in the 1976-77 TV season based on the works of Tex Avery (those he did for WB from 1935-41 and for MGM from 1942-55), so as to build on the success of their 1975 Tom & Jerry shows? Of course, they would actually consult the funnyman himself for help.

    Unlike the originals, these shorts (which would obviously have their humor be toned down to meet ACT/PTA guidelines) would use stock music and sounds from the H-B library, and like most H-B shows, would even include inside jokes (namely, references to characters from other H-B shows, or H-B personnel). One of those I could imagine H-B remaking would be 1945's Swing Shift Cinderella, only this time the Red lookalike cabaret singer would be singing the Jabberjaw main title song (rather than the "Oh, Johnny! Oh!" remake she did as "Oh, Wolfie! Oh!").

    Potential voices that could fit the bill for these shorts: Joanie Gerber, Julie McWhirter, Don Messick, Gary Owens, Frank Welker

    As a Hanna-Barbera connoisseur, I don't think those ideas would have worked very well.
