    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.

Underdog and the cartoons that followed it

    I love these old cartoons even though they are dated. Some are few as anti wolf or racists like Go go gophers. Or, sexist or anti- minority or even anti - Semite or LGTB. Go go gophers was even controversial and politically incorrect for its time. Besides, having negative stereotypes of Native Americans and military, it could also have been accused of being sexist and negative stereotypes of gay men. There are only two women that were in the series and they were mostly men living together. I don’t why the Colonel’s aunt never started putting flowers on the Sergeant. Or, why the Sergeant always obeyed the abusive Colonel who gophers thought was going to be carried off by pale faces in white coats. Military discipline, I suppose or maybe the Sergeant was going to carried off by pale faces in white coats, too.

    That might be reading more into The Go-Go Gophers series than there actually is. It seems to be a balanced set: two lonely Gopher Gulch indians living as the last of their tribe versus two Army cavalry officers manning a largely deserted frontier fort. Two against two, a battle in a bottle, so to speak. It seems to define the old adage: "A zealot redoubles his effort long after he has forgotten his aim."

    I remember,as a child,after watching so many Westerns depicting ''Indians'' in a negative light,it was kind of refreshing to see the Native Americans cast as the good guys for a change,even in a stereotypical cartoon setting.
