I am very disappointed. Not only was this a great site to learn new things about animation history and share thoughts and opinions, it was also a place where I was able to fill some holes in my cartoon collection through trading with other fans. Last, but hardly least, it was where I could learn of ...

I can confirm that the reference was to Simone Simon. I don't know how many of the younger members realize how popular Uncle Tom's Cabin was in its day. The book was adapted frequently into stage plays. References to it would have been understood by mainstream audiences the same we all respond to re...

Never understood the connection the studio saw between a British lord (Robin Hood was supposed to a member of the aristocracy) and the rural American Southern "bumpkin-ism" that runs through this picture. I will raise my hand and say I don't like the Roger Miller songs. Nothing against Miller. It's ...

I could not disagree more with your statement that Disney "every time" was trying to show that cartoons were high art. There is so much evidence to refute that statement. I think the vast majority of the Donald Duck and Goofy cartoons series, for example, were simply trying to be entertaining cartoo...

It could be possible that Mutton, Some Like It Hot, and Banty Raids are all referencing a joke that used to be well known but has know vanished into obscurity. Just a theory. Well, I was actually around BEFORE Some Like It Hot & "Banty Raids" were released. There is no common joke they are referenc...

I'd love to download the title music introduction to the shorts, similar to the 1968 short Three Ring Wing Ding. In GOOD condition. If you have RealPlayer (which is available for free), you should be able to download "Three Ring Wing Ding" from YouTube. RealPlayer will then let you convert the cart...
