    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 thought of one, but I'm not 100% sure about it. So I'll wait a bit before posting a guess.

    Hmm, it seems more "point at the wretched guy" clues are in order. Okay...

    4) This character's film was touted as the newest and greatest thing since Pixar. Box Office Mojo would beg to differ.

    5) At one point, this character contemplates suicide, staring at his sidearm and holding it to his head. Considering his failure record, yeah, not a bad option, like seppuku only quicker. But of course he wusses out, and goes on to more failure.

    6) It takes a lot of manpower and materials and money galore to build a space station in geosynchronous orbit. This character gets his hands on the controls, and goes trigger-happy until the thing blows up. Colonel Kit Coyote wasn't this bad.

    Sorry, but I still don't have it. I'm counting on Fluidgirl, Peterhale, Saltyboot, or even Glowworm to supply the right answer.

    Beats me. I'm not much on theatrical releases post 2005, to tell you the truth. And even if it *is* before 2005, sometimes, I still don't know!

    Well, the shame is on me for picking a real dud. This is General Douglas Hein from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, the haywire military man determined to expunge the alien invasion regardless of the collateral damage incurred. At the time, July 2001, FF:TSW was touted as taking CGI to a whole new level. Perhaps, but more importantly by Hollywood standards, it has yet to recoup its production cost: it cost an estimated $137 million to make, but garnered only $32 million in US theaters, and $79 million in rentals worldwide.

    *sigh* I'd better pass control to someone else, anyone who won't pick a huge dud the way I did. Phooey. :(

    And shame on me for never having seen that one. So I'll make up for it with this character:

    1. Even though I'm the more sensible one, I invariably get into trouble along with the boy and the dog.

    2. I was on the series for just one season.

    3. In the comics, I continue my education on the home island of a well-known superheroine.

    Ah man, I noticed the Final Fantasy movie in my search but I was thinking it was live action. Silly me for not reading up on that. :rolleyes:

    As for the current character, I'll be looking this one up.

    Three more clues should do it for this one:

    4. Although I'm part of a superhero team, I have no superpowers of my own.

    5. I'm a brunette, just like the superheroine I mentioned in the third clue.

    6. The boy, dog, and I were replaced by twin siblings and a monkey.

    I suspect this is Wendy Harris, from Super Friends.

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! Yes, Pete, it most certainly is Wendy Harris.

    1. Of the three Junior Superfriends, she's the most sensible one, but still can't keep herself out of trouble.

    2. She, was only seen during the first season.

    3. In the comics, she departed after enrolling at the Amazon Academy on Paradise Island, the original home of Wonder Woman.

    4. Like Marvin and Wonderdog, she lacked superpowers.

    5. Both she and wonder Woman are brunettes.

    6. Wendy, Marvin, and Wonderdog were replaced by the Wonder Twins Zan and Jayna and their monkey Gleek.

    You get the next turn, Pete. Good job. :)

    Thank you!

    Here is an unusual character...

    1) I am a barely animated cartoon character - and even my limited movement is more than I should display.
    2) I am precocious, to say the least.
    3) I appear in a feature that has a live-action plotline.

    Can't figure this one out. I'll leave it up to the others once again.

    I shudder to speak its name, yet I must, to give a viable answer: Monkeybone, from the feature film of the same name, starring Brendan Fraser.

    No, not Monkeybone.

    I just noticed that I'd missed out the word "has" from clue 3 - I think that the meaning was still clear - I've now corrected it.

    more clues...
    4) My proposed short never progressed much beyond the storyboard.
    5) While my segment is intended to be an insight into production methods, it is still a brave experiment for a studio that stood for full animation and high production values.
    6) My intellect caused me to be separated from my family.

    Pete, if I had the answer, I'd post it right now. Unfortunately, I'm drawing a blank.

    Oh dear! No takers!

    Last three clues...
    7) When I spoke it caused consternation. I wondered why. Was it against the rules?
    8) My address to the world was postponed due to sickness.
    9) The world lost a genius, but my parents gained a baby.

    Aha! The answer is Baby Weems!

    It is indeed Baby Weems, from the 1941 Disney feature The Reluctant Dragon.

    1) The sequence is supposed to be the storyboard of "Baby Weems" being shown to Robert Benchley by one of the storymen (played by Alan Ladd). It segues into a storyboard reel, with camera moves, key poses, animated effects and a full soundtrack, for most of the story, before reverting back to the live action presentation at the end. Since they are supposed to be storyboard panels, even the static pose changes are too much animation!
    2) Baby Weems possesses genius-level intelligence, education and speech.
    3) The Reluctant Dragon follows Robert Benchley's wander round the Disney studio, in an attempt to elude his official guide and find Walt, to persuade hime to film Kenneth Grahame's book The Reluctant Dragon.
    4) This animatic short is the finished production - so it never progressed into full animation, as would have been normal.
    5) Although the artwork is far more finished than normal storyboard panels, and the production values are high, this demonstration of the ability of static artwork to carry the story is a brave experiment for the Disney studio, whose reputation was based on its full animation and high production values.
    6) The medical/scientific community retained control of Baby Weems without ever handing him over to his parents, who could only watch from afar.
    7) Dialogue from the film:
    Nurse: You're a quiet little fellow, aren't you!
    Baby Weems: Well, there really isn't much to talk about.
    Nurse: (shocked) He TALKED!
    Baby Weems: Why, is it against the rules?​
    8) Baby Weems is struck down by a fever on the eve of delivering an important message to humanity.
    9) When he recovers he is just a normal baby - the world loses interest and his parents get him back.

    Well done, Em - although I didn't think it would run to 9 clues! Your point and your turn.

    Thanks, Pete. Now here's another I held back on:

    1. I'm purchased by a young version of an iconic stutterer.

    2. My name's a takeoff on a real life racehorse.

    3. I just can't resist trombones.

    I believe this is Teabiscuit, an old race horse that Porky buys in "Porky and Teabiscuit."
