The highest-grossing animated film of 2012 won the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film on Sunday night.
An early Looney Tune, Bosko In Dutch is generally unremarkable in its story telling, animation or direction. However, the short is important because this was the first cartoon that one of the greatest cartoon directors ever supervised– albeit uncredited.
Not a whole lot to choose from today, so I decided to go for unusual. The Sunshine Makers is from Van Beuren Studios Rainbow Parade Theatrical Cartoon Series, and while it may not be the most obscure choice I could make, it is certainly not a series many are knowledgeable of.
It’s Oscar time! This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for this years Oscars. There are two main areas of competition for animation, the Feature Length and the short awards. This year, the nominees are…
From nearly the end of the theatrical series, The Missing Mouse was unique in a few ways. Popular voice actor Paul Frees– Captain Hook from Disney’s Peter Pan from the same year– handles the voice duties for this short, and therein is one of the unique aspects of the film.
Warner Bros. Pictures has formed a feature animation creative consortium, marking a new and innovative approach to the establishment of a diverse and far-reaching animation slate, Warner Bros. Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov announced Monday.

Eighty years ago today saw the release of Mickey Mouse in Building A Building. This was not the same Mickey Mouse from Steamboat Willie. Mickey had done a lot of growing up– maturing– in five years, and passed a lot of his bad habits to Donald. And the artists at Disney had shown a drastic improvement in their skills.
The Heckle and Jeckle Theatrical Cartoon Series kicked off on this date in 1946 with The Talking Magpies. This short featured a very late appearance of Farmer Al Falfa, and a rare appearance in color.
One of the classic Bugs Bunny cartoons, Gorilla My Dreams was also one of director Robert McKimson’s finest. Known mainly for creating the Tasmanian Devil and Foghorn Leghorn, McKimson made a few classic Bugs films, too, including this one.
Isadore Freleng directed many great films, and paired two timeless characters so close they are now inseparable– Tweety and Sylvester. Dog Pounded is one of the later shorts, produced in 1954. It begins with the very familiar image of a starving Sylvester, rummaging through garbage cans for food…
Well Happy New Year! We start the year off with an Academy Award winning cartoon featuring Donald Duck from 1943. In fact, Der Fuehrer’s Face is Donald’s ONLY Oscar, to date. As funny as this short is, we should never forget the seriousness behind this and other War films… fighting the Nazi’s was serious business in the early forties, even if it could get a bit funny at times.
