Subject:old movie
Security:Public

 I was wondering if anyone could please help me figure out the title to a movie I saw when I was 3 years old.

It was an animated movie and the animation was a bit like The Hobbit, or The Last Unicorn,  It is not Disney or Don Bluth or Looney toons.

I saw it in the 80's in a kids summer camp but it's possible that it was made in the 70's and the theater just had it playing for a summer mantina. Much like now you might see Toy Story, or Tarzan playing in a theater for a summer camp.

it seemed to take place in acient japan, china, or Inda, the characters all had pale white skin, almond shaped eyes, and black hair,

The key things I remember are There was a poor boy much like aladin, but I dont think it was aladin, i dont remember a genie.

There is a young girl that was either a princess or something like a princess,


There was an evil socerer (Not jafar but like him) and he commanded these rock looking soldiers.

There was this old man that had some sort of powers with his eyes. The characters would look into them and they would see their future or what he saw. One main scene i remember is he is looking at the destruction caused by the evil guys minions and he shakes his head sadly and says "How can they see if they don't look into my eyes?"

The other scene i remember is all three of them (the boy, the girl, and the old man0 in the forest and i think they had a magickal table cloth that gave food. Also I remember the girl asking the boy if he was alright.

please help me find the name of this movie.

Mood: curious

Okay so I see that they are bringing the smurfs to dvd and that got me wondering on if all the old cartoons might get brought to dvd.  If they do I would love to see Gem, My little pony tales, and the original strawberry shortcake brought to dvd those were my favorite cartoons growing up.

Mood: determined

Thus far, I now have up to 368 signatures on my petition. But do I have to end it tomorrow while I can just drop the deadline and keep the petition open as long as I can until all of C.O.P.S. episodes get released on DVD? That was my original intension. And to that I say...yes, drop the deadline and keep the petition open as long as I can until all episodes of C.O.P.S. gets released on DVD. Which is just exactly what I'll do to get a decent amount of signatures needed to get Shout Factory to release all episodes of C.O.P.S. on DVD. So stop worrying about deadlines and just sign away.

Subject:Tell Shout! Factory to Release all episodes of C.O.P.S. on DVD -- SIGN IT
Security:Public
Mood: determined

Hello, everyone. I'm crazyharp81602 and I'm new to this part of the live journal. I joined this journal because I want to tell everyone that I'm having a petition drive to release all episodes of C.O.P.S. on DVD. And I don't mean the live action version of COPS, but the animated cartoon show that featured Bulletproof, LongArm Mainframe, Big Boss, Dr. BadVibes, Berserko, Mace, Nightshade, and many others. To those of you who don't remember the show, let me refresh.

C.O.P.S. (Central Organization of Police Specialists) is a late 80s' animated series that aired between 1988 and 1989, which is the subject of my fan fics and my collection of fan art featuring the characters I've mentioned above. Here's a wiki article that tells all about the series,

C.O.P.S. WIKI Article

Thus far, Shout Factory has released the first 22 episodes of the series on DVD, but seeing only 22 episodes while there's in fact 65 episodes and one lost episode The Case of The Boy Nobody Wanted out there is not enough. It is better to see all the episodes than a few handfuls, don't you think?

Here's the page from Shout Factory that has the DVD up for sale.

C.O.P.S. Page From Shout Factory

Unfortunately Shout! Factory have decided to not release the rest because of poor sales, which I find to me inexcusable. Shout must release all C.O.P.S. episodes on DVD and I need all of your help to accomplish this goal.

About a year ago, I made up a petition to release all episodes on DVD and have tried to spread the word all over the internet about it in every which way I can only to get major setbacks, drawbacks, and a tiny trickle of signatures added to it (Please don't tell me online petitions won't work because Shout does pay attention to petitions, whether it's online or hand written, to see how many people would like to relive all the times of watching classic shows such as C.O.P.S. for instance and respond to them). I totally hate it when it happens and right now I'm getting real tired of all sorts of obstacles standing in my way, the setbacks, the drawbacks, the stumbling blocks, dead ends, forks in the road, and seemingly little or no responses whatsoever. Every pleading I made fall seems to fall on blind eyes, let alone deaf ears. And I'm getting really desperate here finding a lot of people who are willing to sign the petition. That's why I'm posting this to beg and plead with you all to sign the petition to release all 66 episodes, including the lost episode, on DVD. It doesn't matter whether you not heard of the show before, forgotten the show, or fondly remember the show. All I need is help in adding 5,000 signatures to my petition to release all episodes on one huge 12 CD boxset and on 3 separate 22 episode boxsets. That should be enough to convince shout factory that we want all C.O.P.S. be released on DVD.

 UPDATE: The deadline is now extended to March 28th All I want from you is full participation and support in reaching my goal of 5,000 signatures added to this petition,

Sign it here!

That's all I ask of you, please support the cause, spread the word about it, and sign the petition to release all episodes of C.O.P.S. on DVD!

I am looking for an old Pluto cartoon where he saves a bunch of puppies from a fire in a building somewhere. I think it was a dog show or something. I've searched youtube high and low and found nothing. Anyone know what I am talking about?

Well, I suppose this should be a question for a jazz community, but it's very cartoon-specific. Does anyone remember the cartoon with the little owl who wanted to sing jazz, but his parents wouldn't let him, so he ran away from home and sang on a radio show? I recently heard a Cab Calloway/Al Jolson duet of I Love to Singa, and now that I think of that cartoon I saw so many times as a child, I'm thinking his voice was more like Cab's. But the character's name was Owl Jolson, wasn't it? It's been so long since I've actually seen it. Does anyone know on whose persona the little singing owl was based?

On this date in 1938, the animated short "Porky's Hare Hunt" first appeared in theaters. It included an anonymous rabbit who would later be named after codirector Ben "Bugs" Hardaway.

For anyone who observes this community who doesn't regularly visit Cartoon Brew (and dammit, you oughta), Brewmeister Amid Amidi provided a link to this article about Digital Video Noise Reduction technology, which is how companies ruin classic cartoons under the pretense of making them better.

And I'm annoyed right now because I got sniped at ebay on a copy of Popeye: The Illustrated Cultural History by Grandetti which I've only been trying to get a copy of for ten years.

Just found this community this morning. I notice it's not that active, but perhaps it's just growing. :-)

In any case, I thought I'd share neat new DVD recs that I got from an e-mail newsletter about silent films that I subscribe to:

Thunderbean Animation
Their products can be found at Amazon through the Merchants. Their releases include a highly respected collection of PD Popeye's vaunted as being the best one available by many animation fans; it includes rare interviews, clean copies straight from film. Thunderbean has also gone the distance with _The Complete Cubby Bear_, some never seen theatrically and all restored to the best efforts that can be made. Other releases include _Attack of the 30s Characters_, featuring every major U.S. animation studio of the 1930s and a collection of Felix silent shorts. These are quality releases made with extra care. Many have galleries of sketch designs and theatrical posters. They are currently planning an Aesop's Fables collection and a Cultoons collection.


As soon as I can scrape some pennies together, I plan on getting the "Attack of the 30s Characters." It looks fabulous!!

Hello!

Stumbled on this group when looking to see how many other LJ users had "Popeye" as an interest.

If you're looking for Fleisher cartoons on DVD, Wal-Mart is carrying a series of $1 DVD's that include all the Superman cartoons (over 3 discs, one also has Popeye material); a number of Betty Boop, Popeye, and at least one of Gabby; and what I believe is a complete print of Gulliver's Travels. It's longer than the versions I've previously had on VHS and DVD anyway, at almost 80 minutes.

Anyone got a copy of Grandetti's Popeye guide they want to part with cheaply?

Hi! I wish this community were more active because I am becoming increasingly obsessed with old cartoons. If you go to Best Buy, they have a two-disc DVD set of 23 original Max Fleischer Betty Boop cartoons. They're insane. And it's only $6.




I love this one. The still is from http://www.dslextreme.com/users/lurchcartoon/index.html, which is a neat place.

Someone on a forum linked me to this, i thought i'd share it with all of y'all. It's an excellent resource for learning about all of the popular culture references in WB cartoons.

It's nice to meet you all. ^_^ I was doing a search on Betty Boop when I found this community. So I said, what the heck, I'll join.

My favorite classic cartoon characters are... I have quite a bunch while I was growing up. I like Betty Boop, Bugs Bunny, Taz, Goofy, Donald Duck, Deputy Dawg, Tom & Jerry, and a lot more.

I'm looking forward to discussing about more vintage cartoons with you all. And I'll be more than happy to help, if there's any offered.

See ya later! :)
