Bolt deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Movie.

Yep, that has been mine opinion. I need to post a thread about this movie or something. Feels like everyone is practically ignoring Bolt.

Um...there already is a thread for this movie. You're posting in it. :)

Really, we're not "ignoring" Bolt. It just came out more than two years ago, so naturally a lot of our discussion is more focused on newer movies.

Nah, this website is just fine. I was mostly talking about CGI forums and movie review websites like Empire, in which Bolt and various other movies have been more or less pushed under the rug to make room for the unyielding glorification of Pixar movies. Not to mention the movie critics. But well, thats just me. To some point I can't help but feel that this movie has been terribly underrated.

I couldn't agree more. I thought this movie deserved the same recognition as a Pixar movie would.

Does anyone know if Sanders is considering doing American Dog for Dreamworks animation?

I actually emailed Sanders about American Dog and from what I heard he is not planning to continue the project. Sanders American Dog was more similar to Bolt's story-line then what you might think.

Um...basically, he can't, since Disney owns the property (what it was, and what it became).

Mr. Sanders did, however, make use of the pirate-eyepatched cat and rabbit 'sidekicks' (or at the very least, their 'stunt-doubles') in his web-comic, Kiskaloo ..

Kiskaloo appeared semi-weekly throughout 2008 .. it was even collected into a trade paperback book; however, it hasn't been updated since. Though -- to be fair -- Mr. Sanders has been rather busy, for the past couple of years! :mrgreen:

Why would he want to? The only major difference between American Dog and Bolt is that Penny in American Dog was kinda evil and that she was saved from a tornado rather than a burning studio. (And Henry was not anywhere near as cute as Bolt.^^)
