    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.

Joe Ruby Dies.

    Joe Ruby, one of the most iconic men in animation history, has died.

    Born in 1933, he, along with Ken Spears, began his career at Hanna-Barbera productions. They collaborated in 1960's classics Space Ghost And Dino Boy, The Herculoids, and others. They also helped bring about Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, which changed Saturday mornings forever. They also moonlit at Depatie-Freleng and Krofft Productions before forming their own animation studio, Ruby-Spears Productions, in 1977. They produced a wide variety of Saturday morning cartoons including Fangface, The Plasticman Comedy Adventure Show, Thundarr The Barbarian, Goldie Gold And Action Jack, as well as the revived Chipmunks, and the animated adventures of Mr. T. They also produced many animated episodes of The ABC Weekend specials, most notably the Puppy and Miss Switch stories.

    RIP, Mr. Ruby. Your legacy will live on. :(

    Don't forget the animated version of Punky Brewster called It's Punky Brewster.

    I like the cartoon spinoff of Punky Brewster. While It's Punky Brewster was the series' unofficial title, I call it simply Punky Brewster because that's what the title card, August promos and TV listings displayed it as.
