And also on Blu-ray! ;) Nah, if I don't have Blu by than, (I seriously doubt it!) I won't be double dipping. I LOVE Sleeping Beauty , but I'm happy with my current SE DVD. I splurged over the last year (two lucky bargains), and got both the new set AND the Playstation 3 to go with it-- I'm ready fo...

I didn't note a date on this, but did he just post this Monday? That's an old story that I read on his site maybe a couple of months ago!

Jim's not resorted to re-posting stories, has he, or did you just find this?
Uh, you'll notice 8/27 in the link, as in the post.

Here's the official press release . :) Edit: here's a little info from Jerry Beck. That Daffy pic looks stunning! And from "A Pest in the House"... Me, I'm just glad we're finally getting the full, uncut "Bugs Bonnets", without at least half the entire cartoon lost to assorted Saturday-morning cuts...

YES! If anyone hasn't noticed, I'm really looking forward to the special. I mean, its one of my favorite TV traditions of all time! The "Your Not Elected" is good too, if just for the ending. And for those who haven't seen it, it's just for the ending that the two will always end up being shown tog...

Betty Boop has always been, first and foremost, a 'sexy' cartoon character. I honestly don't see how this is much different from, say, the licensed merchandise that depicts her in skimpy bathing suits (or in the 'nude', in a bathtub), as a 'biker' chick, belly-dancer, or any number of other tittila...

Ahhh, I can hardly wait! :) I have one more disc to finish, and than I'll finally be done with volume 1. I hadn't realized a volume 2 was even 'in question' .. :o Though, it wouldn't have been the first time I'd collected something labelled 'volume 1', that never had a follow-up volume. Not the fir...

Re: Unico licensed & birth of a new R1 anime company....

ToonZone has an interesting tidbit about a new anime R1 licensing company, New Galaxy Anime. http://news.toonzone.net/article.php?ID=19525 To paraphrase the article, NGA is interested in licensing anime for all ages with a particular emphasis on shoujo anime. I wish them luck. Unless they luck onto...

Personally, I think that's awesome. We need more strong, positive gay characters in mainstream fiction and it's great that J.K. Rowling has gone that route. If nothing else, I'll be looking at Dumbledore more closely next time I read the series. For all we know, there may have been subtle hints tha...

Interesting. I'll have to check mine out soon, to see if they got anything. Sounds a little fishy, though. I once found a couple of cute plush Mei's from "Totoro" in a no-name arcade bin, but since suspected that they might've been Asian knockoffs... Which wouldn't have had much value over there, e...

I'd just guess they were cheap import toys that came with a cheap import-- The road to licensing is still long. :( (And Doraemon is hysterical if you can find the fansubs, but it's such a mix of preschool and proto-anime crayon-drawn, fans lose hopes of it ever getting that big mainstream break exce...

Read my review and all will be revealed... And yeah, it was never one of my favorites either-- Mowgli always seemed the least sympathetic hero since "Sword in the Stone"'s Wart...And we can assume that Walt was just in a cranky mood when he decided to throw out the old book-related storyboards and ...

So you have to see this particular movie, and it has to be IMAX? What if you don't have an IMAX theater where you are? :? Why couldn't it just be a regular trailer? Or couldn't they put it on the Intenet as well? :roll: As most Warner movies now sell themselves with IMAX-only 3-D scenes (Superman, ...

"among the last films to bear the personal touch of Walt Disney" I really hope they don't leave that on the cover synopsis. Dalmatians was done and over WAY before there was any question of Walt even being ill! Ah, fooled by the "Among", were we? At least "Jungle Book" gets to wear its official "La...
