    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.

    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.

    Tom and Jerry DVD news: Press Release for Tom and Jerry - The Gene Deitch Collection | TVShowsOnDVD.com

    ON DVD JUNE 2, 2015
    Release Includes 13 Re-mastered Theatrical
    Shorts and All-New Bonus Content
    BURBANK, CA (February 5, 2015) - The work of popular animator Gene Deitch is the focus of Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection, available on DVD June 2, 2015 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE). This compilation will present viewers with 13 fully re-mastered theatrical shorts, produced by Deitch, plus brand-new bonus features. It's a release that collectors of classic animation, won't want to miss! Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection will retail for $26.99 SRP.
    For decades, that tussling twosome Tom and Jerry have chased their way into the funny bones and hearts of moviegoers and television viewers in a variety of unforgettable cartoons. In the 1960s, acclaimed animation director Deitch, was selected to bring a new set of Tom and Jerry shorts to life. Adding his own distinctive style to the famous cartoon, Deitch worked with William L. Snyder's Prague-based animation studio, Rembrandt Films, to create 13 memorable shorts. This entertaining collection from WBHE brings Deitch's fun-filled cartoons together for the first time on DVD, completely re-mastered.
    Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection will include two bonus features: "Tom and Jerry...and Gene: The Rembrant Years" as well as "Much Ado About Tom and Jerry."
    "Over the years, there have been many artists who have put their own unique touch on Tom and Jerry cartoons. This collection recognizes the work of long-time animator Gene Deitch, who directed over a dozen shorts," commented Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President of Family and Animation Marketing. She added, "We're delighted to bring these beautifully remastered shorts to collectors. If you are a fan of classic Tom and Jerry shorts or just love animation, this is a must-own DVD for your home entertainment library."
    Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry centers on the never-ending rivalry between Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The plots of each short usually center on Tom's attempts to capture Jerry. Jerry however, is clever and quick on his feet so Tom hardly ever manages to catch him. The original series is notable for having won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoon seven times.

    This is great. I originally didn't much care for the Gene Deitch Tom and Jerry cartoons when I first saw them, but for one reason or another they grew on me, and now I really enjoy seeing them.

    I'll probably pick it up because trainwrecks are fun in a creepy way, but mostly because any support towards classic animation that would otherwise stay in the vault is still important in the long run.

    I was disappointed to learn that Deitch was a straight jerk though.

    I didn't know that...all I know is that "It's all Greek to Meow" is the most recognizable of the Dietch T&J Era.
