Since this may (but hopefully may not) be my last chance to do this, I'd like to share a little something that at first I just enjoyed as a cool piece of music, but now feels sadly appropriate to the moment:

I wouldn't worry if I were you, Toonatic. :tweety: Speaking for myself, I'll try not to worry either. However, the out-of-left-field nature of this announcement still shocks me. Like many members here, I grew up with this place. It was a refuge of sorts where I could be as big of a 'cartoon nerd' a...

I certainly can't dispute your decision Jon, but this is a sock to the gut. This and Cartoon Research are two of the first places I started visiting regularly to get news about classic animation, even during the Toonzone days. And it wasn't just news, but there is such history out there that has bee...

There are 'serious' problems with the quality of a few of the new transfers that are the byproduct of WHV's usual ineptitude. Namely their settling for inferior materials. Faded Eastman actually made it onto the set, if you believe it. I will have more to say about this on my blog. But - they are a...

Moderator Note: Guys, knock it off. You've made yourself clear- any further bickering will result in being blocked- you have been warned. Now please keep in mind these reasons why Warner's may not have used the original title cards/best print/ etc to release on this set: - Full restoration costs mo...

I've only seen this picture a handful of times, which sort of speaks to its mediocrity. But there were some bits that stuck out, like Prince John's final meltdown when he realizes he's just burned down his mother's bedroom. Also for some reason I always liked the fact that the narrator of the piece ...

Maybe something like this just isn't possible. Just because people have unearthed this stuff doesn't necessarily mean it's realistic to somehow splice them into existing cartoons and make DVDs out of them. But isn't that what WHV has done in most cases with original titles on the LTGCs, take the or...

And I think 1st voice actor of Betty Rubble also appeared on the I LOVE LUCY show. She played timid/shy person who was in love with a neighbor of Lucy's. I don't remember the details. You mean Bea Benadaret? She was also a member of the cast of the radio show "My Favorite Husband" which was the pre...

Meaning of Life is the best one to me. It goes back to the roots of Flying Circus. I'm also going to stick up for Meaning of Life and 'And Now For Something Completely Different'. The latter takes all of the best skits from the TV series, so it's very entertaining to me. The former I was thinking I...

I believe that is a reference to a sketch by Stan Freberg parodying sappy melodramas, where every other line is the two lovers, John and Marsha, saying each other's names.
