    The Ant Bully – a.k.a The Destroyer Image courtesy Warner Bros. Pictures In somewhat the reverse of how I saw a preview of Cars, last Saturday found me in a packed theater in San Francisco for a sneak preview of The Ant Bully . There were kids of all ages, teens (and tweens), parents, grandparents and...
  • Blog Post: The Ant Bully: "We're not making fun of it. We're celebrating it"

    If you were looking for someone who has experience in story on animated productions at most of the players in Hollywood, then this guy would be well placed on the list. The name of Ken Mitchroney is found on the credits of many animated television and film productions. Usually as part of the story crew...

    Image courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures Last December, I had the opportunity to visit the great state of Texas. The main reason for doing so was to visit DNA Productions , located in Irving, just outside of Dallas. At that time, the folks there were hard at work on a project for Warner Brothers and Playtone...
  • Blog Post: Check out Mattel's new "Cars" collectors series

    Given that Hot Wheels have been such a huge hit for Mattel for the past 38 years, it should probably come as no surprise that -- just as " Cars " was rolling into theaters -- this toy giant would also be rolling out a brand-new line of toys. One that would feature vehicles that were modeled...
  • Blog Post: ... While Roger doesn't share Michael's positive opinion of Pixar's new picture

    Okay. So we all know that " Cars " is one of the summer's most anticipated releases. But after watching this new Pixar Animation Studios' production, I just could not help but think that -- as good as it was -- "Cars" could have been even better. And that's all the more a pity. Because I really did enjoy...
  • Blog Post: ... then checks under the hood on "The Art of Cars"

    Let me begin by saying that I am not a car guy. As in: I don't have "grease under my finger nails and gasoline in my veins." But I certainly know more than a few folks who qualify in that sense. And while I don't own a hot rod or a sports car, I have enjoyed my fair share of experiences involving both...

  • Blog Post: It's official! Pixar & Disney have finally merged

    Friday, May 5, 2006 will likely be a date soon forgotten by many. Yet the importance of a short meeting held at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art should not be overlooked. This was the day that Pixar stockholders were to vote on the question of the proposed merger with Disney. A crowd of perhaps a...
  • Blog Post: Ruminations: Speedway to Movie Theater for 30,000!

    A few Sundays ago, I had the opportunity to stop by the Lowe’s Motor Speedway . Located in Concord, North Carolina, just north of Charlotte, this is the heart of NASCAR racing. Guess who’s coming soon? And with the upcoming premiere of Disney/Pixar’s new film, “Cars” weeks away, I thought you might enjoy...
  • Blog Post: Ruminations: More Animation for the Holidays

    Special programming for the holidays is nothing new. And even though we can look back almost 40 years now to " A Charlie Brown Christmas ", the tradition of seasonal shows to help get us into the mood go back to the days of radio with many favorite shows having music and stories that helped to make things...
  • Blog Post: Ruminations - The Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volumes I, II and III

    This week's effort should have a subtitle. How about "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"? Because that is how I feel after watching all twelve discs of these three DVD sets -- especially after watching Volume III. Let me say that I have always enjoyed the classic Warner Brothers cartoons. The Bugs Bunny...
