    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.

    Last February, after Teletoon got rebranded as Cartoon Network, the former Cartoon Network (which took over Teletoon Retro's spot in 2015) has now become a Canadian version of Boomerang.

    However, as per online schedule, it seems like most of the lineup consists of 2010s material. There is no classic "Scooby-Doo", "The Flintstones", "Jonny Quest", nor any classic Hanna-Barbera material. However, there is one classic aired, and that is "The Raccoons" (aired 1985-1991) - it makes sense, since the network had to comply to CRTC regulations requiring a certain amount of time per day to consist of material with Canadian talent. It makes me wonder if "My Pet Monster" may eventually come to Boomerang Canada - if only on a weekly basis?

    It makes me wonder if the lack of Hanna-Barbera classics is likely due to HD?

    NOTE: I realized just now that this should be in the Television Discussion thread in the cartoon availability section. Please move this thread to the rightful forum, mods.

    Moved to Television, all's well. Oh, and thanks for the update on how Canadian broadcasting has shifted its assets.

    Hanna-Barbera's library is now part of Warner Media. I'm not sure what's going on with Warner management, but they've been stingy with their content, even getting persnickety with a sister network.
