    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.

Red-haired boy (Nikolai?) and his dog goes on adventures. (Denmark, 1980s?)

    I know that this will be a long shot, but I hope that someone here will be able to give me some more information about an old cartoon series, that I used to watch back in 1989 when I was five years old. I recorded one episode on an old VHS tape, and that is why I can give you so many details. Based on snippets of text from the ending credits, my theory is that the cartoon is Danish or maybe Norwegian.

    As you can tell from the title of the thread, it is about a red-haired boy. He also has glasses, pink shirt and blue pants. His name (at least in the Swedish dubbing) is Nikolai and his best friend is a big orange dog. In the one episode, that I recorded back then , they visit a scientist's house and accidentally use a time machine, so they go back to the time of the three musketeers. And I know that this was twentysix years ago, and I was only five years old, but I can swear that I also remember a different episode, where the same boy goes to Atlantis. And all the people had become mermen and mermaids, who had been able to survive under water for thousands of years.

    Do you have any ideas at all?

    Based on some of your details (orange dog, pink shirt), I take it the show wasn't a European dubbing of Peabody's Improbable History? Some of the other details seemed to fit. Mister Peabody - Wikipedia

    Hi! I did a Google search for pictures from "Mister Peabody", and that boy looks a lot like the boy from my mystery cartoon. The dog is not similar though.

    Okay, could his name be not Nikolai, but Peter? There's an old Hungarian cartoon series featuring a red-haired boy with glasses named "Peti" ("Peter" in both English and Swedish), and his orange daschund. In the early episodes, Peter was bald with just some hairy spikes on his head, but in the later, he was given a hair. There's an episode called "Peter and the Time Machine" (Hungarian: "Peti és az időgép"), but unfortunately, this episode is nowhere to find...

    Here's a YouTube playlist with a number of available episodes in English: Peti sorozat - YouTube

    There's also a Swedish VHS release: 008 PETER OCH HANS HUND (VHS), Boa video

    Could it possibly be it?
