    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.

    Trophy Points:
    Would it be possible for us 'toon fans to re-construct the DVDs that had been screwed up before, such as The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour?

    My view on this would be, in regards to said series above:

    *Locate an original 16mm filmreel of the 1976 broadcast of The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour, and then transfer that to a blank DVD (to be marked, using a special felt pen, "THE SCOOBY-DOO/DYNOMUTT HOUR" on its front side). It is suggested that you shell out additional money to your local film-to-DVD specialists to cover fees for digital color and sound corrections/clarity to match the same two respective clarities seen/heard on the legit DVDs.
    *Run the now-marked DVD that you got made, and sift through the contents of it. Sift through it and extract (using a program such as Pinnacle Studio or Ulead VideoStudio) the opening title theme, the Dynomutt segment bridge, and the closing title theme, and then save these as separate files (you will be using these for all 16 episodes).
    *Now insert the legit Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour DVD into your computer's DVD drive, and then sift through it, extracting only its main segments. Do this for all 16 episodes (16 of Scooby-Doo + 16 of Dynomutt, total of 32). For a DVD-9 format disc (nominal max run time: 240 minutes), up to four of these hour-long episodes will fit comfortably.
    *The breakdown would be as follows (all running times are nominal):
    **The original Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour opening title theme (1 min)
    **Scooby-Doo main segment (22 min)
    **Dynomutt series title bridge (30 sec)
    **Dynomutt main segment (22 min)
    **The original Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour closing title theme (45 sec)

    Grand total time, w/o commercials (nominal): 46 min 15 sec x 4 episodes per disc = 185 m (3 hr 5 min)
