    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.

Seeking more information / footage of this show if possible.

    Trophy Points:
    Anybody around the age of thirty from the UK or Ireland might remember it. This is the only clip I've found after searching the Internet for about a decade. It was a forty minute, weekend block of classic cartoons, mostly public domain but not all, which aired on The Children's Channel (TCC) from around 1988 - 1992. It was simply called Cartoon Classics. A few curious things I remember about this series: 1. It played about 98 percent public domain cartoons and then, for some reason, stuck in the odd non public domain like Tom and Jerry (always Hatch Up Your Troubles) or The Hep Cat. 2. This was aimed at children, on The Children's Channel but as you can see in the clip, they had no trouble airing, for instance, The Office Boy (Flip The Frog) or pre-code Betty Boop. It was almost like they had no screening process at all. Every cartoon was selected completely at random. I even remember viewing All This and Rabbit Stew on this show. 3. They mixed in a good few of the sepia toned Looney Tunes with fake "The End" cards. Where did they get them prints from, same source as the Cartoons 'R' Fun VHS collection? Despite all this, the show was amazing. The prints they aired were always pristine and the cartoons ranged from WB, Paramount, Van Beuren, Pat Sullivan etc. No Disney. Your typical public domain package but with near perfect prints and you never knew what was up next. The opening / bumpers featured a cartoon orchestra animated in black and white in a Max Fleischer style. Any more information on this show, clips or episodes would be greatly appreciated if there happens to be a recording out there somewhere. Otherwise, all I have is a fond, childhood memory and this tiny clip.
