Like others have said, this is definitely not Disney's finest hour, but the film does have it's moments. Edgar's reaction when he thinks he is the one inheriting the fortune and subsequently choking out the word 'CATS!?' was very well animated (who did that scene?) Plus, a film that could bring Maur...

Shoot, I had no idea that DBJ was Mr. Kress. That makes this doubly heartrending to me since this forum has lost a great member, one I think we could use more of.

RIP, Mr. Kress. Thanks for everything.

I might actually have to check this out, since the reaction isn't as negative as I was expecting it to be. I just wish there was an easier way to get classic films reissued to theaters than this...

A flaw with the film that came from the source material is still a flaw. Then again, I guess I'd have a hard time taking against a video that takes repeated pops at Randy Newman. Agreed. As great as Roald Dahl's books are to read, they have a decidedly mixed record when it comes to movie adaptation...

The reason I remember this cartoon is the gag where Spike finally grabs the rooster and runs halfway across the county up to that lone tree on the mountain to a frenetic rendition of 'The William Tell Overture.' It's one of the few times I can remember Scott Bradley getting the MGM orchestra really ...

Saw 'Cars 2' last night and enjoyed it. I don't know if this sequel was made under pressure from Disney to make another 'Cars' film, but if it was I can just imagine the writers deciding to go all out with the spy thriller and automotive motif. It may have had me staring in disbelief at the screen, ...

I always look on ebay but I don't know any collectors personally, so my only hope of finding the originals that way is to contact someone here for them. I just want proof that the original titles for that cartoon exist, since Birth Of A Notion is on that list. I find it hard to believe myself since...

Not sure if this is a goof, but in the Popeye short "King of Mardi Gras," Popeye is circling a ring around Olive Oyl and a plank suspended by a bar appears. Can anyone clarify? Not sure if there's a cel that didn't get filmed or perhaps the camera angle was shifted clumsily, but the platform is sup...

Incredible! It's a joy to hear that wonderful Carl Stalling title music playing under it's proper artwork.

And JLee's colorization attempt seems very plausible too, since these title do bear at least a passing resemblance to the recently found 'I Taw a Putty Tat' titles.

Do-Do wrote:"The first use of human characters in cartoons"? I think Col. Heeza Liar and Farmer Al Falfa might take exception to that.


I wonder if that line was actually meant to reference 'You Ought to Be in Pictures'. Still doesn't make it accurate though...
