    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.

    Oh no you'se don't. No blanking on me, nuh-uh.

    7) Yes, this character has a proper name. However, she gets a nickname from the team Keet: Miporin, pronounced like "Me pourin'."

    8) The sport the girls play is called "sensha-do," which couldn't possibly work, not even in the United States. It'd take two or three wizards to make it work. But this is a cartoon, so the Laws of Physics are demoted to Suggestions of Physics. :D

    9) If there's an Aesop to learn from these series, it might be that making a sport into a business takes the fun out of it; better to let the kids play and enjoy sports.

    The only anime i found with sensha-do is Girls und Panzer. So i'll say it's Miho Nishizumi.

    Well, I'm glad you said Miho Nishizumi, Saltyboot, because that's who it is. The first Girls Und Panzer series of 12 episodes was originally conceived as a niche anime, and would have aired normally in the wee-hours block. However, a fluke scheduling hiccup put GnP in the daytime block, where it picked up a large following. Manga adaptation followed, then a video game, then a prequel series ... and it's been a juggernaut in Japan since then. In fact, the real port city of Ooarai has started it own Panzer Festival!

    Just for recap: the first series chronicles Miho's arrival at Ooarai Academy up to the Tankery Championship. The second series details Miho's days while still the First Officer at the austere Kuromoremine Academy. That austerity ultimately drove Miho to tankery-less Ooarai.
    Tankery is what it sounds like: cute squeaky school girls in army tanks shooting at each other. And it's billed as a great way to attract boyfriends! At one point the Student Council uses racketeering tactics on Miho to make her found the new Tankery Team; it was agonizing, but she agrees as it's the least-worst option. And somehow, the shells they fire can obliterate an engine compartment, but none of the girls (up to six in one tank) ever get more than bumps and smudges.

    Despite a lot of ridiculousness in Girls Und Panzer's premise, there's a lot of Truth in Television about how tank warfare is conducted. The personal demons angle of Miho "Miporin" Nishizumi adds a lot of drama as well. Adding another fine +1 to Saltyboot's tally, and acceding control of the board. :)

    Thanks, OUB. Here's mine.

    I'm in a WWII propaganda short.
    The title of my short is a pun on a live action film.
    My goal is to blow up a bridge.

    Aha! Found it rather quickly. It's The Missing Lynx, from "Confessions Of A Nutzy Spy."

    Yep, it's the Missing Lynx. Confusions of a Nutzy Spy is a pun on the movie, Confessions of a Nazi Spy. The other clues are obvious.

    You're turn emeraldisle!

    Thanks, Salty. Here's one no one's even considered:

    1. My TV ads aired mostly way down south.

    2. I'm a lawman who pursues just one criminal.

    3. My fast food chain is the one where the burgers are charco broiled.

    The "charcoal broiling" part torpedoes my original thought: Officer Big Mac, whose sole criminal adversary is the Hamburglar, both mascots for menu items at McDonald's. However, McD's uses straight flat grilling.

    No, not Big Mac. He was never a toon to my knowledge.

    Actually, McDonald's has three or four videos of their characters going on lopsided adventures, sold at the counter at the height of VHS. They're obvious bang-offs, drawn similar to The Wild Thornberrys, and eerily off-model. I have one in the junk drawer, never watched it all the way through. Come to mention it, I don't remember Officer Mac in it.

    I don't have the slightest idea. The only burger mascots I can think of are the ones from McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King. I think I need some more clues on this one.

    As you wish. Here are the last three clues:

    4. I wear a sheriff's outfit.

    5. My last name is a cliched equestrian command.

    6. Those who want meals at my restaurants are encouraged to hurry on down.

    Okay, this is Gilbert Giddyup from Hardees. I've never heard of him before--and I don't think there are too many Hardees around New Jersey.

    Yes, Glowworm, you got it. Incidentally, there are none in New Jersey, as it's a regional chain, just like Checkers and Steak And Shake. Now for the clues:

    1. Due to being a Southern and Midwestern chain, the ads mostly aired down south.

    2. Gilbert only went after Speedy McGreedy, a burger rustler.

    3. The slogan was "Where the burgers are charco broiled."


    All other clues are self-explanatory, so you're up again. Good job. I'd buy you a Thickburger if I could. :)

    Thanks, I'll admit I was trying for Roy Rogers at first--but that didn't fit the first three clues at the time. Also, we actually do have a Steak and Shake now.

    Here's a quick one.
    1. I am the faithful pet and companion to a well known character.
    2. Although fairly well known, I have only appeared in two theatrical shorts--although I have later appeared on tv.
    3. In my first short, I talk in a typical dopey manner. In the second short, I am silent, although I communicate quite eloquently through notes.

    This is one I can't guess at. Maybe another poster knows.

    In regards to emeraldisle's character: I'm familiar with Hardee's, but not with this character. They must've gotten rid of him by the 1980's.

    In regards to gloworm's character: I don't have the slightest idea.

    Could this be Charlie Dog, who tries so very hard to be Porky Pig's pooch? That bit with the signboards and easel comes to mind, selling himself as the Greatest Household Necessity Evah.
