Posse Cat (1954)
Le court-métrage de Tom et Jerry "Posse Cat" (1954) (Où Tom a de l'estomac) résume à peu près le peu de créativité qu'avait les créateurs de dessins animés MGM durant le millieu des années 50. Malgré le grand coût pour un épisode et les succès peu hâtifs de la UPA, les studios MGM commencaient à perdre peu à peu le reflet qu'il avaient durant les années 30 et 40, mais cela n'empêche pas le studio de se lancer dans l'ère moderne (De l'époque bien sûr) avec par exemple le Cinémascope, plus connu aujourd'hui sur le nom de Panoramique ou Haute-Définition!
Concernant "Posse Cat", le dessin animé est assez moyen et trop tendance à tomber dans le répétitif. Mais il faut admettre que la perspective du coucher du soleil à la fin du film est une réussite. Aussi la scène où Jerry propose le marché à Tom est assez réussi. Même si dans "The Lonesome Mouse", ils l'ont déja fait.
Il est dommage que ce court-métrage ne soit dans les Spotlight Collection de Tom et Jerry parus au cours de ces dernières années. Voici quelques images de ce dessin animé. Amusez-vous bien!

Where's the Volume 4 now?
I lived in Trois-Rivieres and like everyone, i like the Looney Tunes. But i was surprising that the new Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD was nowhere in my town. What's the heck? Why it's available somewhere and not in my town. That's a real outrage!!! >__< And i'm really angry for that!!! All we have is the Looney Tunes Christmas movie DVD only. I'm very sad of this ignorance. I shame to live in my town now.

"Invansion of the Bunny Snatchers" ending
Here's screenshots from the ending of the Bugs Bunny episode "Invansion of the Bunny Snatchers" (1992) directed by Greg Ford. Much know for his comments on the DVD sets of Looney Tunes.
Greg Ford is at my opinion, one of the modern specialists and great knows about the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies. He's directed too 2 Daffy Duck cartoons spoofed the horror movies. "The Duxorcist" in 1987 is a brillant parody of The Exorcist and the purely drawn "Night of the Living Duck" spoofed the title of Night of the Living Dead. Curiously, the music used of Ford's cartoons was recycled from Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn in the 1950's. Note very well which clue music is in each scenes from this cartoon. You can perhaps a familliar idea which cartoon this music was originally used!!
Here's finally this screenshots. Enjoy!
I'm back + The Old Army Game (1943)
That's finally 3 months i don't update my blog. I'm really sorry for the lack of updates but i was busy with my work, drawings for DeviantArt and Paint Class. I can't use my blog anymore cause of this. I don't know if i'm back for good cause i don't use often but i tried to my possible for make much updates in the future.
That's five screenshots from the Disney cartoon "The Old Army Game" (1943). A short that i enjoy recently. The scene where Donald think he's lose his feets was touchful and brillant. I really like too where Donald would suicide with Pete's Gun. Here's some moments from this episode.
I'm really sorry for the inconveniences and lack of updates but i don't know say how peoples like my blog. Big thank you!
Much updates coming soon. I promise!

No smoking in cartoons now?
Turner would cut all of smoking scenes in this library. Including cartoons like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones and even Scooby-Doo. Honnestly, i find it disgusting. It's too a lack of respect of the times or smoking was acceptable in public places and now with the laws, they're cut now? Holy Bastards!! Stop to cutting cartoons. Spike TV did also removed the cigar of Mudskeeper in a Ren & Stimpy episode. Yeah. That's sound very bad for the future of our favourite cartoons. What your opinions?
