Like so many things in life, it all started innocently enough. Not too long ago, legendary animator Andreas Deja posted an issue of Modern Maturity magazine about animated films of the 1990's. I recognized it immediately; my grandparents had a copy of the same issue and I read it over and over until I practically had it memorized. Please go to Deja View and read it now, if only for that list of upcoming films, yo. Bluth's "Hansel and Gretel", something from Hannah-Barbera called "Endangered", and of course the "Roger Rabbit" sequel, which I will believe is a thing when I'm in the theater watching it.

And I cannot wait to get to Summer's Best Bets For Kids, which dates back to 1993 and is so packed it might take all summer to cover. I'm saving that one for last. The rest I'll do in chronological order why not.
I'm going to be very busy scanning all these so this post is really just a teaser.
Sketch of the Day!
You know, I don't remember my dreams often enough todraw things that appear in them, but when I do...
