Re: Disney Parks

I agree--- not much real culture in Orlando. It was hard to even find a used book store. And no local theatre that I recall, just stuff like Medieval Feast. It's really a tourist town. ************************************ I went to MegaCon a couple of times--- met George Perez for the first time, a...

Re: Disney Parks

My parents had a house where I lived for a while that was near Curry Ford. It was in a gated development... They sold that house a long time ago... early 2003 I think. My mother and youngest sister actually stayed in that house through a hurricane that passed through the area in 1998(?) I think. Lik...

Re: DC Universe Animated Original Movies

I agree. The leadership just isn't there. Some of the capable old hands are still around, but with Timm, Dini, and McDuffie (R.I.P.) no longer there, it's the higher-ups calling the shots now. Johns, the DC exec who overseas these things, pushes the New 52 stuff, including of course his own work (w...

Re: Disney Parks

All right... I see your point, James. Honestly, I do! ...I'm honestly NOT trying to insult anybody here... I'm just looking at it from a personal POV and with my own logic. I'm sorry if it doesn't match up with yours but honestly no two people think absolutely alike... And honestly, for the million...

Re: Disney Parks

All right... I see your point, James. Honestly, I do! IF you have a family, that's great... However, if you're on a date or just mildly interested, the one day prices are ridiculous! :lol: :shock: :cry: :roll: :evil: Also, not everybody can take the sugar rush of going into a Disney park for an enti...

Re: DC Universe Animated Original Movies

Rand, It HAS to be the people in charge of these productions AND the writers. That has to be main reason why the last 4-5 WB/DC Animation direct-to-video features have been so uninspiring, uninteresting, and let's just say it -- mediocre, at best. I kind of wonder how long they'll continue productio...

Re: RIP Stan Freberg

In addition to the Looney Tunes characters listed in the linked Hollywood Reporter article, Freburg was the voice of Pete Puma and one-half of the "Goofy Gophers" duo (Mel Blanc voiced Mac , Stan Freburg was Tosh ). I saw him speak briefly at The World Animation Celebration in Pasadena, back in 199...

Re: RIP Stan Freberg

I'll grant you that... I'm not into nostalgia radio and 1950s/1960s comedy acts. It's just not a big area of interest for me. I have very little doubt that's true for most people today. If you weren't alive back then or didn't particularly pay attention that stuff probably went over your head. This ...

Re: Disney Parks

Ticket price is cheaper in Tokyo Disneyland... Which IS weird but true... I looked it up a couple of days ago after hearing they raised the US prices to over $100 per day = insane to me. But that's true for amusement parks in the US in general. The parks I went to in the 1980s were way, way cheaper ...

Re: RIP Stan Freberg

I haven't heard that name in a long while! I knew he was a voice-over artist but I don't automatically associate him with a character like I would June Foray or certainly Mel Blanc or Dawes Butler or Don Messick. Those guys you KNOW what they did... Freberg sounds like most of his career was spent i...

Re: Lost in Space: 50th Anniv comes to Blu ray late 2015

Yeah, I gotta admit some DVD releases weren't that great. I watched Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (the Japanese series that was edited into Battle of the Planets and G-Force; the original version is WAY better than the edited versions!) all the way through for the first time last year. There times th...

Lost in Space: 50th Anniv comes to Blu ray late 2015

http://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-two-cents/040315_1100 I think this is the third major release of the series on 5-inch disc. The previous out-of-print release was on DVD but I'm fairly certain that there were announced plans for a re-release on DVD as well as the Blu ray edition. You can bet the...

Re: comic strips discussion

Oh, that is FUN! Having enjoyed Mr. Staton's work for many years, I was very happy for him when he landed the Tracy job. I think Staton was one of the better-known Green Lantern artists way back... Mid-late 1980s. That was around the time Hal Jordan temporarily retired as GL and they brought back t...

Re: Adam West returns as Batman in new animated film

You didn't have to show me all that stuff! I just asked for Adam! :lol: FYI, I sorta did meet Yvonne Craig. A long while back -- must be at least 12, maybe 15 years ago... I visited her website. I know there's a slim possibility of this -- realistically -- but I do think I got an e-mail back from he...
