    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.

    Since yesterday was National Lazy Day...what cartoons had characters try to have a vacation from everything and/or let others have the control?

    Good example...in Garfield and Friends U.S. Acres/Orson's Farm, Orson decides to go to the town (probably visit Garfield...that should've been an episode as well, "Orson Visits Garfield") so he lets his friends handle things though Wade Duck was hesitant...but when Orson sees things went well, he plans on a future trip for a week...again, this could've been a great cross-over cartoon, "Garfield's Friend".

    Dodsworth the cat. In both of his cartoons, (Kiddin' the Kitten and A Peck o' Trouble) he tries to trick a kitten into doing the work for him.

    Of Course, there is the classic Bob Clampett Cartoon, "Wabbit Twouble...." Where Elmer (in "rotund" form) tries to go to Jellostone Natl. Park for Rest and Relaxation and gets everything but...

    As for "laziness," there was a calssic Deputy Dawg Cartoon called "National Lazy Day" where they competed to see who would be the laziest in the land.
