It's a shame Chuck Jones hated this movie. All because he felt the movie treated Bob Hoskins like the star rather than Roger Rabbit... I had never heard that Jones hated the movie, do you know which interview or correspondence specifically mentions this? I've always been under the impression that E...

This is one of my all time favourites! Here is a classic scene where donald shouts ouy a racist comment at Daffy http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=1b_88kWrA70 This is actually a myth... I know it sounds very much like Donald is dropping the N-bomb, but in reality he isn't. If you go over to the "Snopes...

You have two issues here. First a sound film appears out of sync if the track is printed at the incorrect displacement position. For 35mm, the track is advance 19.5 frames of the projected frame. This is the distance from the lens gate and the Sound pickup head. This is not so much a problem with 3...

Is this scheduled to be the last wave of Walt Disney Treasures? I hope not; it would be nice to have all of the educational shorts on a future compliation (particularly the ones featuring Jiminy Cricket).

The age of the 16mm print has nothing to do with it being out of sync. It was a printing error. Actually, I wasn't implying that the film was out-of-sync because it was old. I was just speculating that the film being run by the TV station was probably an older 16mm print from their film library rat...

You know, when I saw the title of this thread, "I saw 'Destino' in the middle of the ocean!" I thought for a moment he was drowning or something!

It's pretty safe to say, though, that The Bull in Bully For Bugs was probably killed at the end. Since that's often the outcome of real-life bullfighting. I don't believe that the bull is actually killed, just temporarily stunned as he had been all during the earlier part of the cartoon. Actually, ...

Yup. Horace is nominally Mickey's draft horse in THE PLOWBOY , THE JAZZ FOOL , THE CACTUS KID and THE FIRE FIGHTERS , though he has sequences in all four in which he's otherwise fully humanized. THE BARNYARD CONCERT is the first where he's his own man, and from THE SHINDIG he's officially a pal rat...

The recent Saved from the Flames collection featured beautiful copies of a few cartoons ( Play Safe and Balloonland ) that were outstanding... Those are quite beautiful to look at... I purchased a copy of SFTF back in the spring and have enjoyed watching it immensely. Play Safe looks to have been r...

Tex Avery's The Cuckoo Clock (1950) has a wonderfully-gothic feel to it, with its Ronald Coleman-like narration!
