    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 have a question some of you may be able to answer me on:

    For all the Hanna-Barbera cartoons that were syndicated by the (DFS) (Dorland) Program Exchange, is it true that this was some sort of joint agreement with Worldvision Enterprises, which acted as main syndicator of the Hanna-Barbera library since 1979 (the year that Taft Broadcasting, which had owned H-B for 13 years, bought out Worldvision)?

    If the joint agreement thing is the case, I believe that, with the exception of the classic 1960s "The Flintstones" shows (which Program Exchange remained syndicating through about 1992), that Worldvision alone had syndicated the H-B library until 1991, when Turner bought out the whole of H-B (and most of the library of H-B's spinoff company, Ruby-Spears), although the Worldvision deal on Scooby-Doo and other cartoons would've ended around January 1, 1993 if I am not mistaken.

    For example, I know that while Program Exchange had syndicated the Scooby-Doo episodes, there were 155 half-hours in the package (as noted in the latest available issue of Broadcasting Magazine, dated 12/29/86). I know 113 of these half-hours were pre-Scrappy-Doo (1969 to 1979). These 113 half-hours break down as:
    *1 to 25 - Scooby-Doo, Where Are You (CBS, 1969-71)
    **1 to 17 aired 1969-70
    **18 to 25 aired 1970-71
    *26 to 73 - The New Scooby-Doo Movies (CBS, 1972-74) (this show originally ran 1 hour long, making 24 full-hour episodes, of which there were 16 in 1972-73 and 8 in 1973-74)
    **26 to 57 were originally full-hour episodes 1 to 16 (1972-73)
    **58 to 73 were originally full-hour episodes 17 to 24 (1973-74)
    *74 to 113 - The Scooby-Doo Show (ABC, 1976-79)
    **Breakdown of these half-hours as follows:
    ***Episodes 74 to 89 originally ran as part of The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour (1976-77)
    ***Episodes 90 to 97 originally ran as part of Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics (1977-78)
    ***Episodes 98 to 113 originally ran as part of the revived Scooby-Doo Where Are You, and then as part of Scooby's All-Stars (1978-79)

    But, can anyone please help me on what the last 42 half-hours of the Scooby-Doo local syndication package?

    Thank you,

    Ben Edge
