    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 watched Krazy Kat which was made by King Features Productions in the 1960's...so was Popeye and Beetle Bailey.

    Were there any other cartoons under King Features?

    Let's see, there was Defenders of Earth, featuring the Phantom, Mandrake the Magician and Flash Gordon. Separately, all are King Features contractees. I know Dennis the Menace and Blondie were made into live-action specials, but animated? I dunno. Mutts is King Features, as is Hagar the Horrible, and The Family Circus.

    Dennis the Menace did have an animated show and Dennis was voiced by Alan Thicke's son...not Robin Thicke.

    Blondie and Marvin both had TV Specials on CBS.

    "Snuffy Smith"was part of the same package of cartoons which included Krazy Kat and Beetle Bailey. They also produced the Saturday morning Beatles cartoons, as well as Bob Kane's "Cool McCool".

    Another KFS comic that became a cartoon was Baby Blues...but it only lasted for one season and both Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman had no control of it since The WB was trying to topple FOX with their animation line-up.

    But I'll give it credit for using this song....

    Lest we forget, Filmation produced an animated Flash Gordon series in 1979.
