TTTP In Exile / Re: What happened to Dave Mackey's website?
« on: October 10, 2014, 02:19:38 am »
Yeah, I've also noticed that his website's been inactive (to say the very least) for a while.

WHAT?!?!?! A new CDOTW?
Frankly, with all respect due, as this is for the modern day 2003 webtoons, I'd just ask "What? A modern day cartoon of the week
 but I'll just trot out of this and politely say that I haven't seen them, but from what I've heard, they ain't that good.

The BONGGG!!!!! head-on collision is used in those cartoons (first used in 1964, it sounds like a loud church bell--The Simpsons has used this oe..)

From their original parent Columbia ("Bell, Bell, & Candle",1958), the "Bewitched" predecessor, "witch's-cauldron" bubbling in "cauldron" scenes and silding electric-guitar followed by sped up electric piano then one of at least three effects-originally, in BBaC, a up-swoop sound, used for all of those street gas lamp scenes (before electric street lamp poles appeared), replaced by Columbia's then-other and earlier independent client UPA in 1959's "Mr.Magoo's 1001 Arabian Nights" (the 1994 Scooby-Doo version being a FAR cry from THIS) with a held telephone ring which is the standard finish on this, but also an explosion has been used as well. Think, in Hanna-Barbera's world, of the famed 70s WonderTwins Powers Activiate! Power...ACTIVATE. Space Ghost and Laurel and Hardy, both in fall 1966, were among Hanna-Barbera's earlier use of that.

Speaking of the sound effects borrowing from their own flagship parent Columbia, the original 200 or so Three Stooges's famous eye poke ("Boinnngg") which was one of the first in HB, back in 1957. In 1958's "Scooter Looter", a first season Yogi Bear on the first season 1958-1959 Huck Hound show, Yogi Bear keeps riding uncontrollably (the plot summary of the episode) into hole emblazoned tree after another courtesy of the tree branches, to that Three Stooges sound effect. BOINNG!

Finally, from Paramount's original pre Tom Cruise/Dakota Fanning "War of the World", a gaggle of space sounds just right for "Space Ghost" (and Abbott and Costello and others spoofing the genre) to shoot lazer beams. WHen a James Bond type and a character like Secret Squirrell or Atom Ant had to use gunfare as mutual war, one of those would be emnployer by HB sound directors and sound editors, if not by the famous dynamic duo that ran the studio.

TTTP In Exile / Re: Dumbo: live action version?

If you want a live-action Disney film with "Dumbo" in the title see Operation: Dumbo Drop!

LOL! My sentiments EXACTLY, ParamountCartoons! [FINALLY glad to see my sentiments shared with someone else...ever since "Operation: Dumbo Drop" FIRST "dropped" into theatres in the late 1990s.]

Sockpuppet, I've seen that glass slipper ad for next year's Cinderella remake,too. I read that "Downtown Abbey's"Lily Allen will star, and Cate Blanchett's the evil stepmother.

It's happened to me,too..

From the title, you'd think the thread was about bad shows featuring HATED characters. (Started thinking of Scrappy-Doo...yikes!)
I thought the same thing about the title....Scooby-Doo would be just as bad (Snooper and Blabber and Secret Squirrell format steal, I say the 70s and 80s generally qualify as the worst age of animation...everyhting had to be drawn super hero life style by then..)

Just about all Walter Lantz and WB cartoons from the 60s

Anything that the WB studio did since the 1990s

All spinoff shows with some exceptions. I'll save those for another thread, about "Acceptable revivals".

The 1980s Gumby series revival due to the re-soundtrack music, due to the legal issues over Capital Records and several other entities over the background music used (it's the same one Capitol's John Seely was credited for, back in 1958, when Gumby was a few years old, for scoring those fall-winter 1958 WB cartoons due to a musicians strike). More than fifty composers were involved with the background music..also the newer music sucked and they also did newer episodes as well, which sucked as well. (All of this in my very humble opinion.:)

Just a few of my least favorite things...

A baby boy....I didn't even know he was married.....(okay, a part-reference from tweety's : :tweetie:'s Room and Bird..")

How did the original poster get the title card restorations?   :)

Nothing against your choice, dawc.. :bugs2: but I was goin' WHAT, a MODERN era cartoon (the webtoons..) Haven't seen them meself,though.. :bugs2: :gandy:

Not being an AnimX fan, it doesn't effect me, but that's been happening for all that legal stuff. I don't even like uploading vidoes with sound because of this.

TTTP In Exile / Re: Where To Download Speedy Cartoons
« on: April 12, 2014, 10:31:39 pm »
I was wanting to do this for a while, and now it's my chance. Of course I have mentioned on my replies that I have every post-1964 Looney Tunes cartoon (1964-1969), but they are not the only cartoons I have, I also have 8 Looney Tunes from Golden Collection Vol. 1 that were low pitched and I pitched them back to their original NTSC pitch with recreated titles, every classic Road Runner cartoon (1949-1964), all the Wile E. vs. Bugs Bunny cartoons, Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog cartoons, 1953-1954 Tom & Jerry cartoons with recreated titles (except 2), Cinemascope Tom & Jerry cartoons (including the first 4 in academy ratio) and Chuck Jones Tom & Jerry cartoons.

But I don't have every Speedy Gonzales cartoon as video files unfortunately due to a few issues I have:
  • I only found 3 online to download (Cat-Tails for Two, Speedy Gonzales and Mexican Cat Dance).
  • The rest are non-downloadable on other sites.
  • They're not on YouTube due to copyrights from WB.

So if there's anyone who can help me find videos of the 12 classic Speedy cartoons I don't have, please send me a link or download file. I'm begging on wanting to have the rest as video files.
Personally, I saw no reason for any of those 1964-68 Speedy films as  :daffy: was inexplicably teamed with Speedy (actually due to the request for these since Speedy took place in Southwest an Mexico where the cartoons were set an daffy being popular  as well but he was a jerk when they could have been paired as friends, or a la Porky's farewell, 1965's Corn on the Cop, as police officers..)  Still glad to see you like the pre-1964 Speedy cartoons, though, with  :sylvester:

Rather blow my brains out.

April Fools Threads / Gumby episodes to be reset in soundtrack..

to ALL have the synth sound and Justin Bieber songs (Justin himself has a new face on Mt.Rushmore).

Davey and Goliath may wind up with some of the same synth music in new video releases..  :(

Hi! It has been announced that in 1970, right before the then-so named Warner Bros.-7 Arts were to close, Bill Hendricks was doing a Alex Toth
 style toon, with a blonde 16 year old teen girl, Theresa, and her friend,s Bunny, Christina), Sam, and Roger, in a rock band called..
 .with blessings from the great Milton Caniff---TERRY AND THE PIRATES at first then TERRY AND HER PIRATES. Hey, HB did a "Butch Cassidy" 1973 bubblegum show, no cowboys
 Therese aka Terry (a teen girl)-Janet Wado
 Christina, her flip do wearing reasonable tambourinist Deborah "GIdget" Walley
 Roger, her tanned bfriend- Jerry Dexter
 Bunny- dizty- long haired miniskirted Laugh In Goldie Hawn type -Julie Bennett"
 Sam-Larry Storch

 Music-William Lava, Frank De Vol.

 A very groovy cocnept, Terry has short bang on her hair and all the girls have miniskirts. You thought WB imitated HB-well, Terrytoons imitated HB's newer side with
 Sally Sargent and Ruby Eye of Monkey God (and HB's newer style with Johnny Quest in 1964 WAS based on the REAL Terry and the Pirates by Milt Caniff.)

Bunny (a human, not the Faye Dunaway rabbit from the cartoons) is the ditz. The leader, voice by Josie and Judy Jetson';s Janet Waldo (talk about Hanna-Barbera ripping off) is a teen girl very similar to Alice (HB) and Sally Sargent (Calvert/Terry_).

In talks, Sherry Alberoni, June Foray, Paul Frees and some others were in talks in 19760 to do voices..

 Now is THIS Warner Bros. trying to adapt to the Josie-Scoobiefied HB times or WHATY? Oh yeah. A laugh track and plenty of Hanna Barbera sound effects.

I saw the movie yesterday part wsas pretty good but the voices didn't match up with the dinos-they didn't even more their lips!
