TTTP In Exile / My Vimeo Account Gone R.I.P.
« on: December 13, 2014, 03:33:16 pm »
DAM! And I thought this would never happen! Since the beginning of this month, my Vimeo account was removed due to copyrights from WB Entertainment. It was because I uploaded every post-1964 Looney Tunes cartoon on the site. But I did put in a copyright in the description, it worked since until they nailed me recently!


General Discussion / My Dad's Favorite Cartoons R.I.P.
« on: November 29, 2014, 09:49:30 am »
Yesterday, my dad died from his blood pressure decreasing in his body. And I was so depressed when this happened. He was my only dad who use to watch 2 of my favorite cartoons I watch on TV when I was a kid, which they are the Mr. Peabody & Sherman segments from Rocky & Bullwinkle, and Pinky and the Brain. And I use to talk with my father about cartoons back then, he even told me to do a performance of the song "When I See An Elephant Fly" from Dumbo in a high school talent show I did back in 2006 and I loved how I did it!

Here's what I will say to my dad:

"May you rest in peace." :'(

General Discussion / No More Turner Channels On Dish
« on: October 21, 2014, 04:28:42 am »
Here's what I heard on the Dish site:

Our contract with Turner has expired and they have removed CNN, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN en Español, Headline News, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies from DISH’s channel lineup.

Currently, Turner is making unreasonable financial demands, and they have refused to extend the overall agreement. We are working around the clock to reach a fair and reasonable agreement with Turner. We have had a productive relationship with them for many years and are confident we can reach an agreement to restore these channels soon.

Doesn't that suck for those who have Dish Network?

Update: I have done a petition for this, sign it here so Dish and Turner will bring back the channels.

TTTP In Exile / A New Way To Censor Blackface Gags In MGM Cartoons
« on: October 14, 2014, 08:57:52 am »
Of course you remember the blackface gags in MGM cartoons that have been censored on TV and most home video releases.

But I have thought of since back then a new way to edit them by instead of deleting the scenes, why not alter the pink colored lips to dark grey or just black, as well as removing the curled up hair? WB altered the pink colored lips in "The Grey Hounded Hare" :bugs2: on Golden Collection Vol. 4 back then (which to me was a smart move for WB), so why couldn't WB do the same with the blackface gags in most of the MGM cartoons?

Update: I mean for only television airings, because I want to go further on the censorships for these cartoons while working at WB. By keeping most of the scenes intact (unless they have black stereotypical voices), but to recolor the lips totally black.

General Discussion / A Clip From The New CGI "Rocky & Bullwinkle" Short
« on: October 05, 2014, 08:52:33 am »
Yep there's a clip from the long awaited CGI Rocky & Bullwinkle short that was originally suppose to be attached with the theatrical release of Mr. Peabody and Sherman, before a short based on the upcoming film Home replaced it. And unfortunately I couldn't believe how badly executed it was after watching a 2 min. clip from the short. Though the animation is fantastic as well as the voice acting by both June Foray as Rocky, and Tom Kenny as Bullwinkle, but the comedy doesn't work at all. It's mismatch and doesn't feel like the original show. And if that's now enough, some gags only last for a micro second, making it hard to see what happened. How the hell did the creator of Beauty and the Beast, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame ruin the moose and squirrel we know and love? So what do you think about this new short?

Watch a clip from the short here:

TTTP In Exile / Underrated Cartoon Studios Question
« on: September 14, 2014, 03:13:04 am »
I was originally going to do a topic on my salute on the Famous Studios/Paramount Animation Studios cartoons, but I decided to do something different.

Of course we are mostly attached to the well know cartoons made by the major studios: Disney, WB, and MGM for the most parts. But there are animation studios that made cartoons that are not as brilliant as the major studio's cartoons, but are worth checking out today.

There are some underrated cartoon studios that made several underrated cartoons that the general public has forgotten to this day. And the main reason why they are underrated is because of their lack of creativity on character development, intense stories, and well executed humor. They are mostly basic or are just knock-offs to the popular cartoons.

So I would like to know "What cartoon studio or series you wish would have more attention than what they deserve today?" For me, I'm more into the Famous Studios/Paramount Animation Studios cartoons  :audrey: :buzzy: :huey: from 1942 to 1962. The Noveltoon, and Herman & Katnip cartoons are my personal favorites, as well as the Popeye cartoons from the Famous Studios/Paramount Animation Studios era.

General Discussion / Saturday Morning Cartoons Memories
« on: August 19, 2014, 11:45:11 am »
Since Saturday morning cartoons are going to be long gone very soon (with the last one being CW's Vortexx block which will end on September 27 this year), I would like to know your far memories of watching shows and cartoons every Saturday mornings when you will little.

For me, I remember waking up every Saturday mornings to watch my favorite shows that were aired on the local channels. Like watching One Saturday Morning on ABC, Fox Kids on Fox, Kids WB on The WB (which is now The CW), and a couple others. I always enjoyed watching the shows I grew up with when I was a kid, and I'll always remember those times in my heart.

I was a 90's kids (since I was born in 1990), and I was into the 90's shows at that time, as well as the re-runs of old school shows and cartoons.

General Discussion / My Thoughts On The Baby Huey Show (1994-1995)
« on: July 31, 2014, 12:38:37 am »
I'm not surprised that back in the mid-90's, they made a revival of the old school  :huey: cartoons made by Famous Studios in the 50's since at that time, some forgotten or underrated cartoon characters either had reboots or re-runs of their old cartoons shown on TV back in those days.

But there was one things I didn't get aware of from this show, it was made by Bob Jaques the creator of "Ren & Stimpy." But it wasn't until I saw some episodes on YouTube, the show had a lot of humor from Ren & Stimpy (aside from Bob's designs of the characters). And I noticed one episode had where a background character said "DAM!" which I found really weird to hear that in a kids show like this. :o

And I like how the character designs look, sure there are Ren & Stimpy-ish style designs, but the main characters and others like Baby Huey, the fox, the mother, the father, and a couple others keeping their old school character designs as how they were seen in the old cartoons (not to mention the original voice of Baby Huey "Sid Raymond" had a comeback to voice the character in this show). The show is good in my opinion, but I mostly prefer the older cartoons. But It's an underrated show I recommend.

What I read online about this show was that it lasted up to 26 episodes for 2 seasons from 1994 to 1995 in syndication. The first season was produced by Carbunkle Cartoons Inc. and feature one new episode and 2 old school Herman and Katnip and Baby Huey cartoons (I guess the reason they aired the show in this formula was maybe because of either the budget of making new episodes so they had to include the old school cartoons to earn money, or that they need to take time to make good episodes). However when the show entered its second season in 1995, they switch the production of the show to Film Roman, as well as bringing in different creators and changing Baby Huey's voice from "Sid Raymond," to "Joe Alaskey." Aside from airing new episodes at the start of the show, the second season contained an uncredited "Richie Rich Gems" vignette, featuring Richie Rich, an old school Baby Huey or Herman and Katnip cartoon, and re-runs of episodes from season 1 (though only 5 episodes aired an old school cartoon at the end instead).

Every episode from seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on YouTube, so check them out here, and see what you think.

I recently heard on The Bugs Bunny Video Guide's Facebook account that the Looney Tunes compilation film "Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island" is FINALLY coming out on DVD for the first time in the US on November 18th. However, it will be a bare bone release, meaning it won't have any special features.

I'm glad it's finally having its own DVD release after 30 years of not having a home video re-release in the US (unlike its UK releases where it had several VHS re-releases), however there was one thing I at first had my doubt on was the soundtrack. On its current TV broadcasts I remember seeing back then, the soundtrack is pretty messed up comparing to its original soundtrack used on the mid-80's VHS tape. The cartoon's soundtracks are in very bad echoing quality, there are time when either the music or the sound effects are louder than the character's talking (most notably Stupor Duck), and sometimes they add louder music score or sounds making it really hard to hear what the characters are saying (this happens in one part of Curtain Razor). But then I recently heard that the DVD is going to use its original soundtrack instead, however that crappy dubbed version will only be on the film's spanish audio track.

Update: I found a bigger sized DVD cover online recently:

General Discussion / Digimon Season 1 Is Turning 15 In August
« on: July 23, 2014, 12:20:28 am »
I know this is something that you would hear in an anime forum and not IAD Forums, but it's something I wanted to tell you for those who don't know.

The Pokemon title rip-off anime series Digimon: Digital Monsters (titled Digimon Adventure 01 in Japan) is going to turn 15 next month on August 14th. But that's for its american english dub airing, the original japanese version already turned 15 this past spring on March 7th.

I remember when I was a kid, I only watched a few anime series, and Pokemon was one of them. But when I saw Digimon, I thought it was going to be a knock-off to Pokemon despite the title of the anime, but it was different comparing to Pokemon. At first it was an anime series I thought wasn't going to interest me, but when I saw the episodes, they kicked ass. Seeing the Digimon creatures fighting in the similar style of the old school Godzilla films.

But watching the anime now today, the jokes do get kind of annoying as well as the same recycle digivolving sequences becoming repetitive after seeing them more than a thousand times, but it has its charm on the characters, the monster fights, and the awesome villains (especially Myotismon, man he kicked ass).

I will always remember my childhood when I use to watch this anime, waiting for the new episodes that would air either every week or month on the then-defunct Fox Kids channel. And for those die hard Digimon fans who want the complete set on DVD, you can buy it on Amazon today.

Of course it's July and I decided to do a Christmas in July topic. I would like to know the edits in ABC Family's airings of the post-1974 Rankin/Bass Christmas specials. It's been years since I've seen their broadcasts on ABC Family, but I do have some of the specials and one of their films on DVD since I've bought them early this year all in their original uncut broadcasts (they are 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, The Year Without a Santa Claus, Frosty's Winter Wonderland, Rudolph's Shiny New Year, Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey, Jack Frost, Pinocchio's Christmas, The Leprechaun's Christmas Gold, and Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July, though that's a direct-to-TV movie).

So reply to me on if you remember the edits in these specials when they were aired on ABC Family.

It has to be shows featuring classic cartoon or feature film characters we know and love being bouchard in bad TV entertainment of today or back then.

There are may that I heard or seen that are bad, but there are 2 in particular shows featuring classic cartoon and feature film characters I hate the most, and they are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Jake and the Never land Pirates.

 :mickey: "Nooo! You have ruined me forever Disney! Oh wait, I'm in a new show which features the real me."

On April 4th of this year, there was an Ask An Anime Character event at the Kawaii Kon in Hawaii that featured cartoon characters besides anime characters you asked questions to. Here are the list of characters and voice actors who appeared in the event:

  • Zim (Invader Zim)

Jim Cummings
  • Winnie The Pooh (Winnie The Pooh)
  • Tigger (Winnie The Pooh)
  • Darkwing Duck (Darkwing Duck)

What do you think about this event?

TTTP In Exile / Post-1964 Looney Tunes on Vimeo
« on: June 02, 2014, 09:36:53 am »
Since I joined Vimeo a few weeks ago, I uploaded every Post-1964 Looney Tunes on the site (except The Door since I don't have the cartoon nor I have the Blu Ray or DVD of Platinum Collection Vol. 1) for everyone to watch online. I also included the cartoons that are either hard to find or take too long to load on other sites (like VBox 7). For those who are on Vimeo, feel free to comment on the videos anytime.

General Discussion / Tom & Jerry Kids: The Complete Season 2 DVD
« on: May 18, 2014, 07:38:50 pm »
I was just looking at some wallpapers of the Tom & Jerry Kids show, until I stumbled upon this image.

Yep, there's a second volume of the show coming out this year! ;D One site which was in danish said it was released on April 6th this year, but that was in a different country.

According to Wikipedia, it said that the second volume will be released in the US on June 20. But how come they called it The Complete Season 2 when the actual cover is labled Season 1 Volume 2? Didn't we get all the season 1 episodes on DVD last year already? :o
