The Animaniacs Suite

Better view this before Warner Bros. takes it off. This montage was made to celebrate the 99th (and unfortunately last) episode of Animaniacs, featuring various clips from the many, many cartoons in this series. Personalty I think it's Richard Stone's (Animaniacs composer) best work, and I think it's possibly the greatest peace of music I've ever heard.

So sit back and enjoy:

Cartoon Odditites: Pre-Disney Puppet Pooh

Here's an odd thing I found while wondering around the internet one day, it's a marionette version of Winnie the Pooh made for Shirley Temple's Storybook, made 6 years before Disney did it's take on the silly old bear. The only clips I could find of this episode are in this trailer I found promoting the DVD release of the series (The clips start at 00:52 and end at 1:21).

This episode (packaged with the adaption of "Babes in Toyland") is available on DVD at

Trivia: The series also did adaptions of "The Little Mermaid", "Land of OZ", "Beauty and the Beast", and "The Prince and the Pauper", all of which would be later adapted by Disney.

Sepeedy goes CGI

Warner Bros. just announced that a new CGI/Live action Speedy Gonzales movie is in the works to go with the new Marvin the Martian CGI Christmas movie.

I got a very bad feeling about this.

Nostagia Critic reviews "Qeust for Camelot"

The Nostalgia Critic one of my favorite internet reviews, has just recently reviewed the 1998 Warner Bros. animated film Quest for Camelot, or as I like to call it, The Movie Where No One SHUTS UP!


I pretty much agree with the Nostalgia Critic's opinion on this film. It's basically has every 90's animated movie cliché in the book, tries nothing original, and is just confusing (although I must admit I did like the Acme logo on the potion).
