You mentioned that animals don't have their own claymation Christmas classics ... Bumbles is the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph. According to Yukon Cornelius, they survived the fall off of the mountain because ... Bumbles bounce.

Ok got it now:) I have,I believe,all the classic claymation Christmas shows,and I don't think that that fact ever registered with me,that the Abominable Snowman was called "Bumbles". Actually, I didn't watch them this year,things were a little crazy. Now I'm going to watch them post-holiday. I missed my dose of Burl Ives singing "Silver And Gold".

A last little note.

 

The reason some anime fans have made so much fuss about the TCM showings is that two of the features, "Whisper of the Heart" and "Only Yesterday," have never been commercially available in the US in any form. This is the first chance many Ghibli fans will have to see them. There's a lot of exicitement going around. I apologize if we've ruffled any feathers.

Hey, about a month ago I saw this movie on TCM and I really wish I knew what the name of it was. It was an Anime movie and it had this character called "No Face" and he would eat people and things. It also dealt with a little girl and I really wish I had caught the beginning, but I didn't. If anyone could possibly help me it would be greatly appreciated. Email me!

Thank you!

Have some of you seen anime, or are you just stating your opinion because you don't think you will like it? Again, I don't think anime belongs on TCM but, I'm not going to judge a show I've never even watched. If you did watch it and hated it that's your opinion, but it's a bit ignorant if you've never watched it and are calling it "crap". (I didn't have the chance to watch the last movie...I went to bed before it came on.)

For those who do not appreciate animes being shown on TCM because it is not the channel for them, then why haven't anything been said about Cartoon Alley that's on every saturday? Why Hao Miyazaki's films?

 

Though they are not considered classic to some, they are to me. I love TCM for being commercial-free, and showing variety of old movies; even when they show western or war genres that I dislike. But those are the movies that my dad loves to watch. Then there are the Audrey Hepburns' films that my mom loves, and the musicals that my cousin can't live without...so it's not about showing what's "classic", it's the fact that one can call up friends or family and tell them that their favourite type of movies are on. Yes, I understand that if TCM just start showing random movies then it shouldn't be call Turner "Classic" Movies anymore, but it's not like they stop showing Cary Grant or Bette Davis...

 

Personally, I'd like to see more Hao Miyazaki's films. But heck, as long as they remain commercial-free and showing all type of old movies, I'm happy.

I like Miyazaki but TCM isn't the place for him. The difference between his movies and the shorts on Cartoon Alley, is that the latter were made mostly back in the 40s, sometimes spoofing movies of that era, and/or actors. They're classics not just by content, but by time, and fit the criteria of what TCM had come to stand for.

What irritates me most is the fact that the Anime in primetime seems nothing more than an advertisement for the new and improved Anime on the Cartoon Network, which Time Warner owns.

 

This is akin to the shilling of King Kong, which some here found to be advertising. I don't know, I didn't see it.

 

I didn't like seeing Anime, I didn't watch the Anime, but that isn't the point. AS I've said, over and over.

 

It is NOT what TCM is all about. Hey, one more time, if the majority likes Anime on their TCM, they are welcome to it. No need to call names. I couldn't care less. AS I said, I've just about got all the tapes I want, with the exception of a few.

 

I couldn't care less if TCM shows Dumb and Dumber in primetime, I won't be watching. But puhleeeze, let's try to call this for what it is, it's pure commercialism and nothing more. If some like it, lucky them.

 

But it's NOT the TCM of two years ago, I don't care what statistics are posted.

I think you may be right that they're advertising for the Cartoon Channel Anime. I agree that the King Kong airing isn't advertising, it's just opportunistic. They know that with the remake out, people who haven't seen the original might notice it playing on TCM and tune in. It's all about numbers. In that case, they're using the remake to advertise the original.

Yes, Matt, you are correct.

 

I'd like to see either tcmweb or tcmprogrammer in here to confirm or deny it.

 

Meanwhile, we've all been sucked into their game. We're giving lots of board space to advertise their Anime.

 

Just kidding. They could implant an Anime chip in my head and I still wouldn't watch it. But, like a bad commercial that gets in your head, we'll never again NOT know what Anime is, will we?

 

More's the pity. I'd like to see as much attention paid to Marjorie Main or some other obscure actor as has been done to this cartoon crap.

Okay Stoney........you must learn to be more tolerant.....Dumb And Dumber is on the May schedule and I must tell you it is a beautiful piece of art........and it means a lot to us Jim Carrey fans.......

 

Dumb And Dumber takes me to far-a-way worlds of total tolerance and understanding.

 

Why is your mind so closed? Open up and let the art flow through your veins..........c'mon.......be happy and except all this world wants to force feed you!

Tom
