    Cartoons on Youtube

    Sadly it is the only way to watch most classic cartoons these days.

    Carry On Cowboy (and other "carry on" movies)

    I should of called myself Carryonfan, as I am a huge fan of the Carry on series. Even though Carry on Cowboy sadly was the latest one TCM aired. It's far from the best of the series Carry on Jack and Carry on Cleo are my favs. But it's really hard to pick out bad one in the earlier films as there is are so many excellent ones. Take the very 1st Carry On Sergeant, when I 1st saw William Hartnell outside of his more famous role to American fans as the very 1st Doctor in Doctor Who. I was surprised when I checked out imdb and found Mr. Hartnell had done many such films where he played a Sgt. Then there is Carry on Nurse the very 1st of their spoofs of the medical profession and probily their very best. Especially the scene where the patients want to perform surgery. I laugh everytime I see it I think Carry on Spying is the biggest underdog of the entire series. To me it's more of a out there spy spoof than Casino Royale (original 1967 version). They don't leave out anyone...period.

    Bring Back Cartoon Alley

    Add me to the list to those who want to see cartoon alley back. But I have to add this I have Leonard Maltin's Book of Mice and Magic which is about animation here in America and the number of cartoons that have not been seen any where in years is a shock to say the least.

    What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?

    What is the real shame is Warner has the rights to all of the Peanuts specials, and movies. They released most of them then stopped. I did a little checking and unless you want to get in to stuff I shouldn't talk about here. This special isn't available any where expect as a very expensive VHS copy. Which is a total shame.

    The Simpsons

    What we really should be talking about are those early Simpsons shorts that originally aired on the Tracy Ullman Show. They can be found online but I won't say where due to copyright. Which I find really strange look the Simpsons has been on the air for decades. But unless you can find a copy online you just don't see those shorts any where.

    Dr. Strangelove....A comedy?!!!

    I was watching TCM over this weekend when the host mentioned Dr. Strangelove. But when they also mentioned it was a comedy...****!!!! Look I have seen Dr. Strangelove before and I always considered it a drama. I find abosultely no laughs in the film period. What do you think of this slip of the lip.

    Carry On series

    First of all I want to personally thank TCM for finally carrying at least 4 'Carry On' films on Sept 16. To me the best of them are Carry on Sergeant and Carry on Nurse. But these films as well as the other 2 have a great story, and lots of good laughs. If you haven't seen them before I beg of you to check them out...you will have a really good time.

    Bob Hope

    I call it good news Cancel My Reservation only recently came out on DVD

    Bob Hope

    Bob Hope did many, many films I just plain love. But for years my biggest complaint was a film I had not seen in years. One called Cancel my Reservation, which was a comedy/mystery film he did, I swear I had not seen that film in over 17 years, simply because no one plays it. Then just the other day I was checking out Movies Unlimited http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D82686++ and to my surprise that film is finally on DVD. What a surprise!!!

    The lost Kettle film

    I would swear like the rest of you I had seen every Kettle film ever made and have the same on DVD. Then I heard about the brand new Fred MacMurray release Murder He Says, I seen it before and it's not a half bad film. But when I was checking out this http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D38050 I found out Feudin', Fussin' and Fightin' 1948 which is the 2nd film on the disc. Which as it turns out is a lost Kettle film made between The Egg and I and the very 1st Kettle film. Frankly I never heard of it before and I already got my pre order in. I can't wait to see this lost gem.

    anime day

    Or how about old school anime. Like the very 1st bit of it to ever hit the shores of America. Pinocchio in Outer Space, which according to everything I read was the 1st one.
  14. And before any body says anything Mickey Rooney himself has said this in more than 1 interview, personally I heard him say it at least 3 times on different talk shows. It was during the shooting of A Midsummers Night Dream Mickey Rooney actually broke his leg.
