    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.

    In the cartoon world, there are many "What Ifs".

    What if...Adventure Time was acquired by Nickelodeon?
    What if...Tex Avery returned to LT/MM after his suspension?
    What if...Disney acquired the rights to Beatrix Potter Stories like Peter Rabbit?

    I think if Disney got the rights to Peter Rabbit...when Peter lost his jacket...I'm sure they'll have him do this...

    Any other cartoon "what ifs"? I'm sure there's plenty!

    What if the Fleischer Studios had nothing to do with Paramount?

    What if Mickey Mouse stayed mischievous?

    Just out of curiosity, are we allowed to answer any of these? Or must they remain unanswered queries forever?

    You can have some questions of your own...I'm sure there's some that can be solved.

    Okay, what if the Monstars had won the Ultimate Game in Space Jam? Who would be the new face of Warner Brothers Animation after Bugs Bunny is taken away?

    What if Dick Dastardly actually won one of the Wacky Races stages? And it was recognized as a valid first place by the ruling body?

    What if Hanna-Barbera had been named Barbera-Hanna? Not very earth-shattering,I know,just wondering how they decided to give Bill Hanna top billing.

    Forgive me for answering, but this one simply tickles me too much. From A Cast Of Friends, written by Bill Hanna and Tom Ito, chapter seven, paragraph four:

    "There was a brief discussion and no debate. Joe pulled out a half dollar from his pocket and flipped the coin. Heads: Barbera And Hanna, or tails: Hanna-Barbera. The coin spun and landed on the linoleum floor. It was tails."

    Now for the question: what if the falling out between Max and Dave Fleischer never happened, allowing Fleischer Studios to remain intact, with its renewable contract with Paramount Pictures?

    Someone can even answer them for you, example...

    If the Fleischer Brothers didn't have a fall-through, Fleischer Studios would still work with Paramount and it'd be the 4th biggest cartoon studio. Disney of course is 1st, LT/MM would be 2nd, MGM would be 3rd.
