Hey everyone, Paxis here.
First of all, I apologize for the lack of fan news around here on The Lion King Source.
I suppose I should get the bad news through first, eh? I've been meaning to announce for a while that there won't be a Timon & Pumbaa section, or atleast not any time soon, due to the fact that we've encountered some programming errors needed to complete the section. The section is there for the future in case we obtain the programming we need, but for now it's dead and unopened.
Now, on to brighter news. How's about our much-needed site and [...]
This past year has been one of the largest in animation history, wielding a total of 14 films commercially released in English-speaking countries. Of these, 9 were sequels, continuations, re-releases, or otherwise Smurfy. Three were traditionally-animated, two were entirely motion-capture, and four ended up in the Top 10 Grossing Films of the year.
Let's take a look at the films released this past year, in release order. Beginning with Gnomeo and Juliet, which was released in America on February 11. It opened at the #3 spot its opening weekend, grossing [...]

Firstly, for the those of you who do, have a very merry Christmas!
Fanart: First up! Balto the red-nosed wolf! Drawing by Egg. And even though this isn't Balto related, I want to share a couple more drawings. The subject? Me. lol I've been turned into a tree! The original by Madness_Returns. Then Moony's version.
Music video: This video is by BaltoTrain1996. The video is [...]
This piece of news came about in an obscure way. The previously-announced Pixar film involving dinosaurs has had its release date replaced with, you guessed it, The Snow Queen. However, there's a new piece of information emerging: The film is now entitled Frozen.
This practice of changing movie names is not new to Disney; before Tangled was released, it was advertised and produced under the name Rapunzel. The idea behind this is to make it clear that these films are aimed more toward families and both genders, rather than kids--specifically, little girls.
This film [...]
Most of you know about "Disney Afternoon avenue" which was organized in 1990/1991, but did you know that Capcom had a video game contest then? Me neither!
I suggest you to read this article for a lot of pictures and especially that video :
Wow, he won a COLOR television!!! *ironic mode*
To celebrate the Christmas season, Animation Source has begun to snow! (Yes, snow!)
The "snow" season is forecast to last up through the end of December, into January, at least! If this turns out to slow your computer down too much, you can easily make it stop snowing by pressing the "Stop Snow" button at the top of any Source page. To start it again, press the same button, which will now say "Star Snow".
Snow has been a tradition on Animation Source for several years. Have fun watching it snow![...]
I found this on Tumblr :
I found this on Tumblr :
Hey there people,
Last month there was no selection posted to give you all a little time to send some masterpieces. And you did. I needed quite some time to pick something to show you. But I´m gonna stop to bore you with words and just get started.
So here we go!
(As always, simply click in the preview picture to directly access the submission)
First off I came across an wonderful piece of art made by CavySpirit! Her drawing, titled "Green Cheek Conure" is really worth presenting here, but see yourself,
As for Fan-images I want to [...]
Today marks the final key date of the 1st Annual Animation Source Choice Awards before voting begins. Today I have gone over the animated films that were released in 2011, and prepared it to be released on January 1. I handed it off to Conay, host of the official ASCA website. With this, there's exactly one month before the ASCAs officially begin!
To help commemorate this event, I have prepared a video to help promote the awards show, while hopefully helping you, the members of Animation Source, gain a better understanding of what the ASCAs are all about.
Hope you enjoy [...]
Sourcecast has a special treat for you. While we try to regroup for our next episode, the official website has been updated with a Christmas theme! And to make it even more special, we're hosting a weekly update featuring selections from Animation Source, from all the Sources! To view these, go to the website and click the wreath in the middle.
On top of that, several members of Animation Source are working to bring you "presents" for Christmas! What are these presents? Well, you'll just have to keep checking back at the Sourcecast website to know! Keep checking [...]
I think it's diffidently time for a much needed fan news.
In case you didn't notice, I've added a tab on the true story section under Balto. The tab is about common mistakes fans make about the real Balto. The Truth About Balto.
Determination is the key in this drawing. No matter what, Balto was going to save those children, even if that meant dragging the crate all the way back to Nome by a rope. This great drawing was drawn by Moki Hunter. Take a look!
Need a new avatar? How about this amazing avatar? This avatar is [...]
Following the example set by the Animation Source hub and Balto Source, Rio Source is pleased to announce its Frequenty Asked Questions page!
Hopefully this will help out any of you who have problems or questions about Rio, Rio Source, Animation Source, or anything in general. Check it out!
I just posted an article about a very rare TaleSpin board game, released in the United Kingdom :
Also, I have recently posted an article about a TaleSpin cameo in one of Don Rosa's comics, check it out if you haven't already![...]
Hello Fox & The Hound Source! I bring you a much needed fan news!
Site News: In case no has noticed, I've added a production page under the original Fox & The Hound tab. Go check that out if you haven't already! I've now gone back and made it so you can now click to view them due to not everyone being able to right click to view.
Here we have a wonderful drawing of Tod by Sprite. This is Sprite's version of when Widow Tweed left Tod out in the wilderness to survive on his own. Click here to view.

It's been months in the making, but now we are pleased to announce the official opening of How to Train Your Dragon Source!
The site was started by Cemi over a year ago. Since she left, it was finished up by MightyBalto1925, Skulblaka_Shur'tugal, and Animalia! Come on and check it all out!
Well, yes and no! This fabulous lego rendition of the famous Karnage plane, is currently in a contest on the official LEGO site. If it can get 10.000 supporters, it could become an official LEGO product!
To support it, see here :
(I think I had to register to support it)
Well to be honest, I doubt we could get as many supporters, but well, you never know?[...]
As you may or may not know, the rest of the Gargoyles DVD may be released next year. Recently, some Gargoyles fans received news from Disney that they had "tentative plans to release the rest of the series in 2012".
So I took my chance and sent an email to Disney myself, asking about TaleSpin, and here is the answer I was given :
Thank you for your e-mail. We appreciate your interest and are happy to answer your questions.
There are tentative plans to release the rest of this series in 2012. No further details are available at this time.
To view our [...]
Following the example set by MightyBalto1925 on Balto Source, the Animation Source hub now has an FAQ page. You can view it by clicking here.
Have another question you think needs to be on that list? Post it as a comment to his news, or as a comment to the page itself, and it will soon appear.
I know many of you are already aware of this, but a fan-made version of Balto is now in the works! The difference? It's an audio drama. No visuals, all audio. You interested in joining in by lending your voice or providing sound effects? Check out the project here.
I (Skulblaka_Shur'tugal) am in charge of this, but I can pretty much guarantee that you will get to have your voice heard SOMEWHERE in the show at some point, even if you don't get to voice the character you wished. So far one episode has already been made and posted, with great reception. You can hear it [...]
Just a treat from our partner, here are some Halloween-themed comic pages featuring some cameos from Jaq and Ratigan!
PS : Yeah, I should have posted it yesterday, sorry ^^'[...]
The time has come for the first big event of the Animation Source Choice Awards to go underway! Today I announce to you...(drumroll, please?)...the official rules for the 1st Annual Animation Source Choice Awards!
The rules are fairly simple, detailing what films are eligible for which categories, and how voting will take place. You can read it all yourself, but I will give you the overview this way:
I have added scans of the "Captain's Outrageous" graphical novel on the site! Like "The Old Mand and the Sea Duck" and "Her Chance to Dream", it's a very nice book adaptation, with great artworks. So now, I only need "Mommy for a Day" and I think all of them will be on the site.
But don't worry, I have still a lot of Talespin merchandise to post on the site!
PS : I have also corrected the link for the "Dr Doyen's Robotic Revenge" comic, please tell me if [...]
I've just completed a whole new section for the site! Still not 100% complete, but complete enough to make a news on it.
The section includes:
Soon to come...
What you waiting for? Go take a look![...]
Remember how there used to be a FAQ page a long time ago? But after the questions page was invented it was deleted. Well, I've changed that. I have made a new FAQ page, as I thought the site could use one since most of the questions asked today are repeats. Now I'm aware of the fact that it won't stop ALL of the repeat questions, but hopefully it be a useful page on the site!

Larry Latham was one of the few directors behind TaleSpin (he directed 14 episodes). And guess what, when asked about his favorite project he worked on, he says TaleSpin!
Hi, LATT Source. This is Skulblaka_Shur'tugal, your fan news writer for this week. I think we're a little overdue for some new content, but first, a very exciting announcement. MightyBalto1925 has found a bunch of production art for Lady and the Tramp, and has uploaded some of what she's found at this location. Go and check it out, it's really exciting!
NOW ON TO SOME SELECTIONS...
Rob Paulsen, one of the famous voice actors in the animation field, has recently organized a podcast with THE most famous voice actor in the animation field, Jim Cummings!
And in that podcast, Jim did the voice of Don Karnage for a bit, which you can hear below :
It's awesome to see that, even with all these years and all the shows/films characters he's given his voice to, Don Karnage is still one of his favorites!
Of course he also did some more voices, such as Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Darkwing Duck, Ray from Princess & The Frog..., you [...]
Labatryth is inviting all TaleSpin fans to join the roleplay he's organizing! This will take place on the RPG shoutbox at regular times, and there are still many open spots for the characters.
For more information, read the topic :
Well, I don't know how long it was missing its content, but this is why it was missing: The only person who can control the music player is the who made the playlist on MixPod. That person was Sardonyx, the original content builder from when the site first opened last summer.
Anyway, I have re-built the music player myself. I tried to find as many OSTs as possible to make listening to the music player worth while. There was one song, Welcome, from Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's adventure, that I wasn't able to find, so I went to the extent of uploading the song myself. [...]
Box Office Mojo today posted the latest edition of their release dates for upcoming films. Some films now have new release dates, some films have been shelved, and some films have been revealed. Care to take a guess at the surprises in store?
As this article will tell, some pretty interesting upcoming releases in animation have been revealed. The first thing that catches one's attention would be the release of four Disney classics in 3D. This is likely to follow the trend that The Lion King created when it was released earlier last month.
As was announced a few years ago, [...]
Hey everybody, I think it´s time to show you a new selection of masterpieces made and submitted by members.
Now we´ll take a closer look at a fan character. Here you shouldn´t leave without taking a look at ".::Jackie::." by Madness_Returns
Let´s take a look at some fanfiction. Make sure to [...]
That's right, I'm doing the fan news today. Me! ME! And now that we have that established, let's get this show on the road. Hopefully my fan news writing won't be too bad... But here we are, Balto Source fan news, October 9, 2011!

Looks like we've got some good choices this week. You like Balto? Check out this image by kodiac_wolf made over four years ago! Don't let the age fool you, this is one tremendous piece! You like a more recent piece? Here's a piece done by KavikTheWolfDog. You prefer Jenna pictures? Then [...]
Here is the grand opening of a site dedicated to Walt Disney's last film, The Jungle Book!
It's rather short-notice, but Season 2 of Sourcecast officially premieres this Saturday, October 8, at 6 PM GMT/1 PM Eastern/Noon Central!
Not only that, but this show will be LIVE! It will be the first live show of Sourcecast, and with hosts Aniu Caelestis, Rusty the Fox, and Skulblaka_Shur'tugal bound to be there, this is one show you will not want to miss!
What will we discuss? Among other things, we'll talk about the new Fox and the Hound Source, the upcoming Animation Source Choice Awards, and review new films and series like The Smurfs and Season 2 of My [...]
For those of you who didn't already know, Bambi was adapted from a book, Bambi: A Life in the Forest by German author Felix Salten. Well, now Bambi Source as its own section devoted to the novel!
The section will be updated soon to include an entire subsection devoted to the different editions of the book. If you know of one, PM me and it may just appear![...]
I think this site is due for another fan news. I have found many good things to share in the past couple weeks!
Fanart: This is absolutely an amazing lineless drawing of Balto! Great use of colors, and an outstanding painting look! Even though this drawing became a must-see, and will most likely, be a fanart of the week soon, I still wanted to share this masterpiece. Click here to view!
Fan image: Do you ever think that the Balto Source banner could use a change? How would imagine it? Our very own Moss here has come up with a fan banner (Not official) for the [...]
After almost two months since the previous page, I have finally finished page 3!!!
I think it's the best one so far, though it was a LOT of work. (who would think it takes so much time for something that will be read in 30 seconds lol)
This is a news to help promote a new Talespin contest! Here is everything you need to know:
The contest is simple: you just have to do a digital Talespin Fan Art. Don't make an enormous background and try to adopt a "form" for your logo as a circle, for example. Be realistic: this logo is for a T-shirt contest! Don't do a complete and huge pic!
This is just for fun. Disney will probably not see it. Anyway, it could be fun to see some different ideas for these T-shirt, because the old logo is everywhere.
So, here are [...]
Due to The Lion King re-releases being the topic of choice in the shout box recently, I decided to create a new section in the "Lion King" section of Lion King Source. This section, "RE-RELEASES", talks about the film's two-time re-release in theaters. You can view it by clicking here. If you think more needs to be added, just PM me, Paxis, or Tovah![...]
As this weekend at the box office proved, The Lion King still has the magic, even after seventeen years. The film was re-released in 3D, and topped the domestic box office. Early estimates placed the film as having grossed at least $29,300,000 by the end of its beginning weekend, making The Lion King now the seventeenth highest-grossing film in the US, and the 28th highest-grossing film worldwide of all time.
This weekend marked the first time since the re-release of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi that a re-released film has grossed the most [...]

Fanart: It isn't very often that you see a fanart outside of the canine world on here. But that has changed! At least in this gallery anyway. I would like to bring this gallery to the light for this reason. Not to mention this gallery is new! Go check out this drawing of Rosie! Don't forget to add this one to your favorites as well. Click here to add the gallery [...]
There is a chance we may get a TaleSpin Volume 3 DVD set! But for that, you need to READ this and show your support for TaleSpin!
"Yesterday, Open Vault Disney received a message from the guy at Disney that calls the shots on the Disney DVD-on-Demand titles. Of course, we were VERY happy to hear from him. It seems there were other, non-"Generations [...]
For many of you, the Animation Source hub is the "wood between the worlds" of Animation Source. You go there to get to another Source, or on the rarer occasion, to see what the new news is for any Source.
But now I'm hoping people will visit for more reasons. It took virtually all day, but now the Animation Source hub has three new sections: The Animation Source Awards, the Animation Source Choice Awards, and Sourcecast.
The hub has needed new sections for quite some time. While thinking of how to fix this problem, I decided the best way would be to include sections [...]
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a good week! I have some great selections this week!
Site news: Not much has gone on since my last news, but the productions page under Lady and the Tramp has gone up. I have completed the first page, I'll see about adding more if my DVD works...(It doesn't work very well, or not at all sometimes) Slowly I'm getting things done.
These are one of my favorite [...]
UPDATE: THE TRAILER IS NOW AVAILABLE!
If you grew up in the '90s or somewhere near there, Pokemon was part of your life. In its history, it has broken several records: its games are the second-best selling series of all time, after the Mario series. The Pokemon Trading Card Game has sold the most number of trading cards ever, beating out other games like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Magic: The Gathering. The comic books and manga are among the highest-selling of the kid-friendly category. And arguably most importantly, its animated series is the longest-lasting anime of all time.
Hello everyone, Koak again.
I was thinking about this for the past few days. Would anyone like to have a Fox and the Hound board Style to use on the phpBB forum (AKA, Animation Source Forum)? If so, I would like to call in a few helpers for designing!
What I would need.
A Small banner, What size you may ask? 375X85.
A background, What would we look for in this? Something FATH like, or if suggested just use Moki Hunter,s background of Tod, Chief, and Copper.
Last but not least, colors. I would need to ask people. Would you want to keep the [...]
It seems a New Jersey store "Takeover" located in "Montclair" and "New Jersey City" is selling new TaleSpin shirts.
If you live nearby, you sure should get one. They're also selling a Ducktales Gizmoduck tee shirt. Strangely enough, neither have the official titles on them?
Still pretty cool! Now I only wish we could find TaleSpin shirts that aren't just the logo...[...]
Just a small announcement, but two new sections have been added to the site!
The first one to be added is the "Interviews" found under the Balto 2 tab. The page contains links to the Phil Weinstein interviews.
The second section to be added is the "Merchandise" found under the Balto tab. Containing the movie merchandise, and links to other places Balto merchandise related.
That's right, there is a HD version of Balto out there, just this one is in Russian. (Not official) It isn't true HD, but this version doesn't have the DVD artifacts. (Pixels around the edges)
Anywho, Steet posted this discovery here. I thought this was pretty cool myself, so I hopped right into downloading these to take screenshots. But unfortunately I have bad news as well. I wasn't able to download all the files in time before they were deleted from the server they were on. There is a second server, and the files are there, but they don't seem to work. [...]

When was the last time Balto had some site news? I bet everyone was wondering where that went huh. Well, I have took Operation of Balto Fan news, AND Fox and The Hound Fan News. Some of you know me. Names Koak.

And last but not least, a wonderfully made fan-character, Anayeli, given to us by SambaofChaos [...]
Today I announce a partnership between Animation Source and an online comic, "Keeping Up With Thursday"!
The reason I chose to do it is because it's a comic that will probably interest a lot of the fans on Animation Source. But let's hear it from the author himself :
KUWT is sorta like an amalgram of Disney's Great Mouse Detective and An American Tail; 'if Don Bluth stuck around with Disney for one more feature', I suppose I could call it. The core audience is people who like those cartoons, but another part of it are those looking [...]
I have added the hardcover book version of the "Her Chance To Dream" episode in the comics page!
Obviously the story isn't new to anyone who already watched the episode, but this has some really good artworks!
This site hasn't had a fan news in awhile, and I will try to post one every week or two. Depends on the activity on the site.
Other news: I will be adding more backgrounds for the shoutbox. I'm not sure when I will, I have other sites on AS I'm building that I want to complete first before I move onto another. I also plan on changing the menu section dividers soon. This reminds me that I have yet to complete the forums theme for LATTS as well. I will try to complete that one of these days. I will be sure to announce when I do though! I have also decativated the random page [...]
I am pleased to announce to you something that has been in the works for the better part of this past year. Due to the failure of the Animation Source Awards (which will be held again this coming up year), I began thinking of what else Animation Source could do that would involve every member, and keep up with the tradition of voting for your favorite. Well, here’s what I’ve come up with: the ANIMATION SOURCE CHOICE AWARDS.
^Animation Source Choice Awards banner, courtesy of TwistedFate^
To start off, this is absolutely nothing like the ASA’s. You could view [...]
Hello, fans of Rio. This is Skulblaka_Shur'tugal with an important announcement. Rio Source is going through an overhaul session currently, updating the information to include infos on merchandise and the newly released DVD and Blu-ray. And I need your help!
One of the features that is still needed are screenshots. Currently I have several that people have given to me, but I want for YOU to help out by sending in even more! If you have screenshots, PM me and we will figure out how to get them to me, and onto the site.
Also, if you think that this site needs something [...]
I have spotted a small reference to TaleSpin in the PC video game "Cargo! - The Quest for Gravity" which was released this year.
It's actually in the official manual of the game (click to see full screen) :
Pretty cool! I don't have it so I don't know if there's any reference to it in the actual game.[...]
The summer holidays are almost over (for some of you, they ARE over), but that doesn't mean that animated films are coming to a halt. In fact, some might say that the best films of 2011 are yet to come!
First of all, the news that I think a lot of you will find the most interesting: on September 16, for a limited 2-week run, Disney is re-releasing The Lion King in theaters, in 3D! This means that you'll be able to not only see it on the big screen, but with new 3D technology. While opinions on this range from terrific to negative (one newspaper called it "Disney's [...]
Again, a lot of work, but here it is! Page two of my "4-pages mini comic"!
Click on the picture to expand! (I'll post a higher resolution on the site later - I plan to include a "comic viewer" directly online)
Needless to say, this was a LOT of work again. I'm still uncertain about a few things like the dialogue, so if something is bothering you, I'll still be able to make some changes later.
There's been a pretty long hiatus for Fan News for Brother Bear Source, so I decided in creating a brand new News. This news will be covering the topics of the Selections of the Week, so read on to view all of them.
Selections of the Week:
Drawing: Fiddle Fox has created a cute drawing of Koda and Kenai. If you haven't seen this masterpiece now, do so by clicking on this link or the picture.
Image: The Lights by .Inferno. was chosen as this week's image selection of the week. To comment on the image, click the link above.
Fanfic: This Place, Is where [...]
Ok, yet another news that will make visitors confused with our own TaleSpin Fan Comics project, but someone has posted some concepts for a Ducktales / TaleSpin crossover on DeviantArt, and I couldn't resist to show it to everyone!
I definitely think that such a crossover would be a definite winner, because the two series share a lot of common points (adventure being a big part of both), AND this would let us see some characters relationships we've never seen (Baloo & young scrooge? ah ah, love that pic!)[...]
Of course, not official, but still pretty cool, yes/no?
Hey there! It's Paxis.
Yep, as a Site Builder I'll go ahead and be the site's Fan News Editor. There's also a very special update coming up, but I'll save that for last. (:
There was a lot that happened with trolling and as a result, staff changes. Congratulations to the group of Global Mods that were added and are in charge of moderating all the sites! Good luck to you all~
Now that things are getting back on track, here's some on-site fan news and forum news.
This week's fanart goes to Sofala entitled "Family." [...]
As announced previously by a news, I'm changing the staff on Animation Source to a smaller, easier to manage and more neutral one.
But first, I want everyone to know that I have updated the rules to reflect my current sensibility on the problems that occured on the site these years.
I have made rules less « strict » and more leaning on common sense.
I think it's important that EVERYONE listens to MY « RULES » on the sites. There's been so many people making their own rules and spreading them, even visitors, that it's caused the [...]
Everyone was pretty much suspecting it, but it's now official...
The Disney Afternoon (and all Disney books, then) books from Boom! Studios are ending in October. It will end with the crossover between Ducktales and Darkwing Duck. Here are the descriptions for the last issues :
Darkwing Duck #17: "(W) Ian Brill (A) James Silvani 'Dangerous Currency,' Part 2. The Darkwing Duck/DuckTales crossover event twenty years in the making picks up from DuckTales #5 here! Whatever happened to Fenton Crackshell, the original Gizmoduck? Darkwing Duck and visiting Duckburg tycoon [...]
Look what I've found on the web today!
This is a page of an indian online comic. (NOT to be confused with our own TaleSpin fan comic project!!!)
You may not know it, but TaleSpin is actually very popular in India. I admit I do not understand much the humor or the point of this page , but I think the style is pretty interesting :)
Aside from a big-budget movie making big bucks this week end (aka the last part of Harry Potter, taking in the best grossing weekend ever for a film), there was a small and simple movie which doesn't play in the same league : Winnie The Pooh.
This charming film is an attempt from Disney to revitalize this franchise (after the failed attempts at making CGI Winnie, Disney didn't want to lose one of the best selling franchise when it comes to merchandise), and the image of the company at the same time, by making it a 2D movie just like the original film. It was made by high [...]
I've been working hard on this lately, but it's finally come. Here is the first page of my "4-pages mini comic", introduction to the real deal.
Click on the picture to expand! (I'll post a higher resolution on the site later - I plan to include a "comic viewer" directly online)
We still need help on this project! I've noticed a lot of you aren't much active on the forums lately, so please, please, help me on this! I can do 4 pages, but I can't do one whole comic alone. (Aku is working on drawing [...]
It's been over a month in the making, but now Sourcecast's interview with Phil Weinstein is available for transcript download! To download it, click this link. And you can also check out Sourcecast's other transcribed episodes on this forum topic.

Hello, Balto Source members. This is Skulblaka_Shur'tugal, your temorary Fan News editor. This week, I went around and changed ALL the selections of the week, so if you go to the left side of your screen, check out all the new stuff to see!
I've never really done Fan News for a Source before, so I'll just tell you a few of my favorite things around the site. First of all, let's take a look at the Fanart and Images. Up first for art, we've got Sorcy in the spotlight, with their untitled art piece. Check it out here. And our image for this news is by Lone [...]
On our partner site "Negaverse.net", former Boom Studio's editor Aaron Sparrow, has posted a message which gives us the whole story about how he had to fight to get the Darkwing Duck comic books on sale, and how no one at Boom (and Disney?) believed it would work!!!
This is VERY informative, so I'm hoping all of you will take the time to read this!
Direct link here :
Well, I’ve been threatening to do this for a while now, so I guess I’ll just jump in!
The Long And [...]
Sourcecast Episode 10 has OFFICIALLY been released. Skul's on his own, thus constituting a mini-sode, but his range of topics include new and upcoming Sources (he has a list), to a review of Cars 2 and Winnie the Pooh.

James Silvani, the artist behind the Darkwing Duck comic books, has posted a little TaleSpin sketch (crossover) on his Tumblr account!
How cool is that?
The recent events (conflicts between the french and english staff, especially), and a long and growing history of visitors complaining about moderators "making their own rules" and "greedy for power", have convinced me that it was time to make serious changes to the Animation Source staff.
The staff has expanded so much over the years, new mods have been hired by site admins in charge, which ultimately makes me unable to know who in the current staff was doing their job correctly or not. It's no secret that some mods have applied rules in strange ways, banning [...]
Seeing as our old banner was ... well ... old.
Kay the Zombie has made us a new one!
(Because UK is lazy and likes Kay's banners.)
EDIT:: Ok. I'm getting cross. It keeps changing itself back to the old one for NO REASON AT ALL and it's silly.
We WILL have a new banner as soon as it WORKS.
What do you think? :D
... We don't have enough news posts here on SS. I might need to rectify that.
Hello, everyone! This is, I believe, the third installment of the AnS fan news. This fan news will be discussing various topics, so let's continue..
Selections of the Week:
First off, let's delve into the Art section: The drawing, Tough as an Orphan, by emily123 is this week's art selection. Her art skills are improving quickly, and her art gallery is truly amazing. To view her drawing fully, click here.
The next section is the Image section: The image is made by the talented Anubis. In order to view this image, [...]
Hello users of animation source, for those of you who complained of the O&CS layout, look, banner, everything, your complaints have been heard!
Aaeron DiNoze, AKA Kay the Zombie, has redone it! In ONE day!

Being a Journalist has its ups and downs. One of my ups this past week was one that caught me completely off-guard: I was given the opportunity to see advanced showings of Cars 2 and Winnie the Pooh.
You wonder how I managed to see these films early? I will say no more except that I have connections. At any rate, here are my reviews (spoiler-free) of both films.
Starting out with Cars 2. The film comes out in America this Friday, being released as Pixar's 11th animated film, and its first non-Toy Story sequel. The movie follows Lightning McQueen and Mater in a race around [...]
I have put a comic on the site that many fans were looking for : The Legend of the Chaos God!
Why is this one important? Because that's the only crossover between the Disney Afternoon shows that has ever been made!
So the comic is in 5 parts : the first one is TaleSpin, the second Chip'n Dale Rescue Rangers, the third Goof Troop, the fourth Ducktales, and the last one Darkwing Duck.
Cats Don't Dance Source is now open, since today!
If the above banner doesn't work, just click here.
Amazing graphics were done by Aaeron DiNozo.
The information was done by our lovely admin Achoo!
It's an amazing movie, and a classic. Make sure to come check us out and watch the movie![...]
I have uploaded scans of a rare TaleSpin coloring book, which probably was released only in germany and only a few units.
Its content isn't particularly original (most of the artworks have already been seen), but it's still nice! I've scanned all the pages, which you'll find in this article!
Hey TLKSers! I'm sorry it's been such a while, over a month now Dx Fortunately the sources have been restored, so I'll be doing the Fan News again, and I'm going to try and keep up.
This Fan News is mainly for those who haven't seen the updates or important comments that I've post.
So, here's the first update (June 06,2011):
Firstly, all of Animation Source's sites are now re-opened. For the moment, you can all continue to tchat and do your stuff on the sites. On another hand, note that your fanworks won't get activated until everything is proven to be safe - The mod panel is currently closed. *(June 08, 2011)* The mod panel is now re-opened. Your fanworks will now be able to get validated.
Secondly, I have the [...]
I just stumbled upon this on Youtube : a freshly posted remix of our favorite tune from the show!
And I admit, the result is pretty impressive. Hear for yourself!
Also check the "suggestions" videos for a similar remix of the Ducktales and Darkwing Duck themes!
Sorry for the alarming and dramatic title, but I think all of the persons here has the right to know what's going on. Animation Source got entirely hacked, yesterday night.
The troll hacked a lot of moderator/administrator accounts to spam and to give permissions to his double-accounts and thus, made himself an easy way to take control and destroy the sites. I decided to demod every single staff member on the AS sites to avoid their powers to be misused. .
Then the hacker striked back and started to delete a bunch of accounts - including some staff [...]
Animation Source was hacked last night and GreyWolf has deactivated the Sources to keep them safe.
She was meant to be making a News to let everyone know but I don't know where she went so I'm making one in hopes it'll calm things down.
Just sit tight and chat on AS itself and the forums until Steet & Grey can restore everything. c:
Click to read :)
(NB : If only I could draw like that...)
Welcome to Bambi Source to any new coming Bambi source member! I would like to start off saying that summer is finally here! Congratulations to the Graduates on making their final year in high school good luck out there!
If any of you know about Dee, He created a picture that was in the Image spotlight on Sunday and well, here is the Bambi Picture made by Dee.
Considering I received several comments from people not understanding what was the aim of the "Virtual Season" project, I have decided to rename it officially to "TaleSpin fan comics" project. I think this will avoid much confusion.
Originally we didn't decide on the form of the project, and that's why we used the term "Virtual Season". I hope everyone is OK with the name change! (I will change the banner soon with the new name)
Also, I felt the organization of the topics on the forums was messy. There were two sections for almost the same [...]
Welcome Balto Source, to another Fan News by AyameJurora! Summer is nearing and the weather is looking good for some of us. We are off to the forums for this weeks Fan News so new member is you haven't visited yet the I suggest you have a look and injoy the fun.
Here is a question that I think everyone can answer! Are You Obssesed with Balto? Come along and answer, let us know your reasons and what got you into balto in at the start!
Hello, Bambi Source. It's Skulblaka_Shur'tugal, the Source's new admin. I just thought I'd give you an update on the staff, as it stand right now.
First of all, as I said, I'm the admin. If you have any questions, just PM me. Also I'll be in the shout box a whole lot, so just throw something out there and I'll get back to you asap.
I've decided on MightyBalto1925 to be the lead Fanart mod, as well as the current Questions mod. If you have questions for either, just ask her.
Also, Lax Giru'u is the projects mod now. She's [...]
As some of you TaleSpin lovers may know, Ginny McSwain was the main voice director on the show, and she contributed to a lot of other projects too, including gaming ones.
She was recently interviewed on a site, which includes some bits about being a voice director for Disney :
Retroplayer- Early on in your career you worked on such projects as The Littles, My Little Pony ‘n Friends, G.I Joe Operation Dragonfly, The Karate Kid and, a big favourite around here at TGL, TaleSpin. Give us an impression on how you found your first few projects and was it difficult landing work [...]
Is this exciting or what? This is an interview with the people involved in the TaleSpin Virtual Season! Now you can see what the people behind the scenes of the Virtual Season have to say about their involvement!
Questions asked to Steet:
- What made you want to start a TaleSpin Virtual Season to begin with?
Steet : Actually, I didn't start this project! Another fan did (0x7B), who contributed a lot before abruptly disappearing. I'm still hoping nothing bad happened to him. But I've decided to take on the management of the project (as well as helping [...]
Animation Source is constantly trying to find new movies to make into Sources, and now it announces its very first CGI-film: Rio Source! What's most remarkable about this is that it was created in a single week by Aaeron DiNozo!
Rio is currently in theaters, so if you haven't seen it yet, please go and do so! It's a terrific film, and you're really missing out if you don't get the chance to see it! And be sure to check out this terrific Source![...]
Jymn Magon came to the site today and answered a few more fans questions!
He especially answered an interesting question relating to the auditions process :
In the normal casting process, a professional casting company brings numerous people into a studio to read sample dialogue lines (or "sides") to see if they have the right voice for the part. Then they give the producers cassette tapes of the various takes. (I still have my tapes!) Usually we find who we want on the first go-round, but sometimes more [...]
Sourcecast's interview with Phil Weinstein was conducted on Sunday, May 15, and is now available for your listening pleasure. Click the banner to go to the page where you can listen to the interview.
Have we got exciting news for you! On May 15, Sourcecast is going to have an interview with Phil Weinstein, the man who directed the two Balto sequels! Mr. Weinstein has had a lot of other experience in animated films, including The Lion King II, Hop, and many others! He's also worked in television; he won an Emmy Award for his work in Boo to You Too, Winnie the Pooh, and nominated for another one for his work in Hellboy: Sword in Storms.
If you have any questions that you want for Sourcecast to ask Mr. Weinstein, either reply to this news post, or send them to [...]
Well, it's been several long months, filled with little more than commercials and interviews, but after a LONG hiatus, Sourcecast is back!
And this episode is EXTREMELY important, because for the first time since Episode 5, all the Sourcecasters are present at the same time! Well...okay, not at the EXACT same time, but hey, we're all in the same episode! That's a first in over 6 months.
In Sourcecast Episode 9: Attack of the Procrastins, we discuss several things related to Animation, including the opening of four new Sources, a discussion of "Pokemon: [...]
Hi everyone, it's Sardonyx here with the Lion King Source fan news again! Hope you're all well and that your Easter holidays are good!
This week's selection of the week is baredfangz' together, which is beautifully drawn.
I also really likes Sakujo's M.A.M.A, a traditionally drawn piece which we don't see too often on any of the Sources!
We've recently started a petition for getting TaleSpin comics released!
With the recent success of the Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers and Ducktales comics, TaleSpin deserved to have a monthly comics series as well - but it unfortunately won't happen at Boom Studios (the current publisher who had the rights), as they officially declined to be able to get the licence from Disney, even though they were interested.
But now, the rights are moving back to Disney/Marvel, and this becomes a possibility again!
With a little [...]
Sorry for the delayed Fan News, but it's here now! I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!
That's it for this week's Fan News, folks! Stay tuned for next week's Fan News written [...]
There isn't an official announcement, but all clues lead to the same conclusion...
Disney/Marvel is getting back the Disney properties for comic books.
Let me summarize everything I know.
By early 2009, Boom! announced that they got the Pixar and Muppets licences.
Then by mid-2009, they got the "Disney classics" licence.
One month later, Disney bought the Marvel company for billions of dollars...
Boom Studios was able to release Pixar and Muppets titles, until October 2010, when they stopped abruptly to release them. For a few months, Boom [...]
It's GoddessOfTheWolves with this week's very late fan news of LATTS. I hope you all are enjoying the Spring, and Easter is on the way to our homes!
This week we have many exciting news from all over AS. First, it would be the opening of a long-awaited Bambi Source! Big praise to Grey Wolf, who did both graphics and content.
Now, let's head back to our regular fan news...
Fan Art: For this week I'd like to show you a well-done drawing " Reproduction le clochard-2009 " drawn by Nakou.
Fan Images: I'd like to [...]
Hi, everyone. Skulblaka_Shur'tugal here with the very second edition of Anastasia Source's FAN NEWS! Okay, let's see what we have here...Let's open up the box of goodies.
Okay, so the first thing on our agenda is some site news. Grey Wolf was greatly kind enough to provide a "True Story" section on the Anastasia Source forums. Go on and check it out! It's something you don't wanna miss.
Now, since the last news post, some staff changes have occured. Actually, just one: we are proud to welcome Breezewind as a Reviews and Music mod!
New screen-shots of Lady and the Tramp and it's DTV sequel are from now on available on the site. More than 1000 images for both movies are now at your disposal: Enjoy! ;)
NB: The whole official content of Lady and the Tramp Source will soon be revised. Prepare yourselves from some exciting new stuff!
Have a nice day on Animation Source,
This kind of things doesn't happen often, but it's always an honor to be contacted directly by a company!
I've recently been contacted by a company who works with Jeffrey Varab.
Jeffrey is one of the main animators of Balto, All Dogs Go To Heaven, Titan AE and has worked on many others, including Lady & The Tramp, Mulan, Brother Bear, The Fox and the Hound (notice how many have become Source sites here!!!)
They wish to let you know that Jeffrey has started a site on which he gives tutorials on "how to draw like the pros".
Hello, and thank you [...]
This news is to inform you the screen-shots from Brother Bear and it's sequel are now available on the English version of the site (the glich is solved). An average of 1000 images per movie are from now on at your disposal to allow you to realize some fanworks.
I hope that you are all enjoying yourselves here, on Brother Bear Source. Do not hesitate to participate in large numbers. Do not forget: Animation Source can only bloom accross the cyberspace than with the help of some devoted members and visitors! ;)

Hi everyone, it's Sardonyx here with the Lion King Source fan news! The Easter holidays are coming up, and I don't know about you but I'm so relieved to have 2 whole weeks off school!
First off, a congratulations to this week's Selection of the Week, Kiara, Kopa and Nala, a lovely piece by Tamara. Check it out!
Last week's was Tojo king of the birds. We don't see many traditional drawings and this one really stuck out.
Here's one that wasn't featured; Sarabeee! That tickles, a drawing of a possible theory as to who Nala's father [...]
Hello Mulan-Sourcers! Tovah here with the site's newest Fan News.
For this week's fan news I would like to mention an artwork that is not in the Selection of the Week. Kodi's drawing named Mushu and Crikee request was too cute not to mention. Take a look. I would also like to mention another Fan Art in this week's Fan News; The Beginnings by Sweet Fur Wolf! Both drawings are creative and great to look at, so take a look!
For this week's Fan News, I would like to mention another graphics besides the selection of the week. But [...]
UPDATE : Considering many of you didn't like "Yopala Boom", I reverted it back. So it looks like we'll stick to old-fashioned "Animation Source", then!
I thought about this since quite a long time, but I finally decided myself.
I have noticed that most sites that have become popular over the years, have simple, catchy names. Take Google, Yahoo or Twitter for example!
So, Animation Source becomes Yopala Boom!
I will soon redirect the site to www.yopalaboom.com, which thankfully has not been reserved by anyone yet.
Also, as [...]
EDIT: EXTREMELY LATE APRIL FOOL'S! Courtesy to Aaeron DiNozo for making the cover!
I didn't believe this until I did further research, but I am pleased--and excited--to announce that Disney Animation has green-lit a brand-new movie: Eragon!
<--Teaser poster for Eragon, which draws similarites to the original book cover.
Eragon was previously made into a film in 2006, but drew poor critical reception. Despite this, it was the 16th highest-grossing film of the year. However, many moviegoers--fans of the book and otherwise--were disappointed with [...]
Hello, and a warm welcome from Zion and Koko for this fortnight's All Dogs go to Heaven Fan News! These past two weeks have been an eventful few, especially for Animation Source. The new rules that were set out by Grey Wolf have been taken down, and the status on that whole situation is unclear, and plus the arrival of Anastasia Source, yet another beautifully made source. Another exciting thing that's happened this fortnight is the release of All Dogs Go To Heaven on Blu-Ray! Maybe this is a sign of MGM reaslising ADGTH's potential? Only time will tell. [...]
Hey TLK-Sourcers! Tovah here with The Lion King Source's latest fan news. (I apologize that it has been delayed by a few days.) Now onto the news!
Before I start mentioning fan creations, I want to mention a forum topic; outlands or pridelands? created by _ niju. So what's your answer? Pridelands or Outlands?
For this week's Fan Art selection, we have an amazing drawing that was submitted by kereska, but without a title. Another drawing I would like to mention would be Lil Cheetah's drawing named Dawn of a new era.
Just some information on what's currently happening for the Virtual Season project...
- JerRocks2day has done a cover for our comic!
- Aku is doing modelsheets, and has completed both Rebecca & Baloo!
- Mad Dog is involved in taking screenshots for references
- Derter and I are currently working on a 4-pages comic, which will be the introduction to the "2nd pilot" episode
- And I am currently drawing a cover for our comic, and will be drawing the comic introduction!

Hey TLK-Sourcers! It's Sardonyx with the Fan News; sorry for the delay!

Hello LATT Sourcers! It's me, GoddessOfTheWolves, with this week's fan news of LATTS!
Happy Spring, everyone! I must apologize for no news during past weeks. I was very busy...So now, I gotta note you that from now LATTS will have it's news posted on Thursday, because I'm really busy on the other days. But...Enough about me. Let's see what we have for this week, or, should I say, for these few weeks...
We had many updates on AnimationSource on these few weeks. That would be the opening of Oliver & The Company Source and Anastasia Source! I'd like to [...]
Hello TLK-Sourcers! I hope everyone had an amazing spring break like I did!
Before I start mentioning the fan creations for this week's selection, I would like to ask a question; do you think Kopa is real? There are a few topics similar to this question on the forums if you want to check it out here.
On to the fan creations!
For this week's fan art selection, I would like to mention a digital picture drawn by rainfeather named Mufasa. I would also like to mention another drawing by bambam this time, named Simba. Keep up the good wrok, guys! [...]

Hello Mulan-Soucers! Tovah here, with the latest Fan News.
This week's must-see fan art belongs to emily123 and her fabulous drawing Mulan Sketch. It was a simple drawing Created with Photoshop Elements 7.
This week's must-see image belongs to a french member of the site, Ben l' hyene and his his wonderful image Une bell fille a aimer.
EDIT on August 2012 : Looking back at this, I obviously overreacted, due to the disappointment. It appears we'll probably never know the "real" reason behind the cancellation and various problems of the Disney / Boom Studios comics.
Newsflash : TaleSpin is NOT A DISNEY AFTERNOON PROPERTY!!!
What could appear to be a joke, is unfortunately the horrible truth : Disney considers TaleSpin as an entirely separate licence. So yes, forget the fact that TaleSpin was the FIRST show CREATED FOR the [...]
Let's get started! First of all, there has been a LOT of updates for Sourcecast. When last we left our beloved podcast, Episode 8 had just been posted on Youtube. I am now happy to say that Episode 8 has been uploaded to Mypodcast, our hosting site, and can be downloaded on iTunes. Not only that, but a new feature has been added to Sourcecast: The Skultacular Special!
Skultacular Specials are the new "interview" part of our podcast, as in the past it has been proven that getting several people together for a Skype call is tedious at best. So far, [...]
Ok, not exactly TaleSpin, but it's still very interesting. It looks like TaleSpin is not the only series with licencing trouble...Gummi Bears too.
There is one word that causes me to break into song – “Ducktales!” Did you finish singing the rest of it? Like many of you, I was glued to the television watching the Disney Afternoon when younger. There were so many great shows (with great theme songs – “Spin it!”). Fortunately for many fans (including me), there is an artist with [...]
Hello, it's Sardonyx here with the Fan News!
Now, this isn't actually content from this site, but TourmalineTovah came across this interesting video that is a must-see for fans of The Lion King. It is a series of videos entitled A Closer Look at The Lion King (Frame by Frame), and, well, it shows The Lion King frame by frame You can watch the first here. It's very interesting, even if the music's a bit weird xD

Before I end this Fan news, I would like to mention an interesting topic from the forums. Check it out!
We've been informed that All Dogs Go To Heaven 1 & 2, Anastasia and Secret of NIMH will all be coming up on Bluray, on March 29th!
This is kind of a shocking news to me, as I really didn't expect any company besides Disney to release any of their traditional features on Blu-ray anytime soon. I'm glad to be proven wrong! If these do well, maybe there's hope for Universal releasing Balto and both An American Tail on Blu-ray too?
Here are the covers, which I admit are very attractive (even though a bit inappropriate in NIMH's case) :
The price for each [...]
Recently, there have been a lot of questions asked in the "Ask Questions" section of the Animation Source hub, regarding future Sources. It has been stated numerous times that there is a forum topic concerning this, which can be found here.
That being said, any questions asked in the future regarding Sources asked on the Animation Source hub will be deleted with VERY few exceptions. Hopefully there will be a list of future Sources available soon, but until then, if you want to know what Sources are in the works, refer to that forum thread I posted above.
Before I get to the Fan Creations for this week, I would like to make an anouncement. emily123, our admin to TLKS has added official character pages for characters in the TLK comic books such as; Kopa, Mohatu, Mheetu, Tojo, and Ahadi.
"I realize I didn't add all of the official characters. If you have a request for another official character added, please either comment to the news or pm me." -emily123
Now onto the Fan Creations!
For this week's selection of the week we have Lionne_De_Matrix's [...]
Great news! The full, uncut Plunder & Lightning movie of TaleSpin is now on TaleSpin Source!

Hey, I said you should expect to see a batch of new sites opening, didn't I? ;)
So, here is the long-awaited Oliver & Company Source, dedicated to the 1988 Disney film! This is one of the most overlooked creation in Disney's animated films catalog, yet I always felt it was a simple but very enjoyable one. And I know it has a lot of fans!
MightyBalto1925 made the (beautiful) graphics, and Moki Hunter did the information side.
For now I'll be the site admin of the site, but don't worry : I'll soon spend some time on looking for appropriate site admins [...]
Welcome to a Fannews by Myself, Zion and my partner Koko! we have a overdue fannews to give yal and we shall start off with Koko!
Hello dear visitors,
I´d like to introduce myself as our new site admin/site builder (info). Some of you may know me and for the others, I can say that I´m a really friendly person and do not bite so if you have any questions don´t hesitate to PM me.
So I´m totally new to this job and need to figure out how to manage all this but when I did you can expect a complete site update. New movie info will be added soon, the characters will get more complete descriptions, etc.
I might not be perfect but I´ll try my best on here. So if you spy anything like [...]
So, hello everyone! It's GOTW with this week's Fan News!
First of all, I (and, of course, we all) would like to welcome our newest source, Brother Bear Source! It indeed looks very nice, and that source was requested by many members, so I think that it was really worth the time it's creators spend on it. Praise to Wolf.250 and Sardonyx for their job on the site! Hopefully it will be a great addition to AnimationSource.
Now, back to LATTS...For the start, I would really like to encourage you, members, to post some more reviews to LATTS. We would love to hear [...]
It has just been announced that the new Disney Vinylmation TaleSpin merchandise will be coming on February 25th 2011. It will be available to purchase directly on the Disney Parks On-Line Store!

Hello TLK-Sourcers! I'm Sardonyx with a special Valentines Day themed Fan News!
Firstly, I'd like to mention the AS Awards; the results are being confirmed on the 18th of February because of many modifications being made. Now, onto the regular news!
Firstly, I'd like to congratulate superwolfgirl on her nameless fanart which you can view here making it to the Selection of the Week!
Next up is AnnieFu's Love, a cute little drawing of Nala and Simba.
A note from Conay:
Thanks to everyone who watched the show, it was a great success. Apologies to anyone who missed it; because, due to a technical hitch, you won't be able to listen to the show again.
The results for the ASA's will be confirmed in a week's time, as there are many modifications needing to be made. Thanks for your support.
It's GOTW with this week's Fan News of LATTS.
Hope you all are having a good start of February, and enjoying the year of 2011. Hope you are all happy and have lots of fun on Animation Source! I know, there were many problems going between members, but we can't let that to overshadow our good lives and happy being here, on the Sources, can we? Surely we can't.
So, just like every time, this week I'll provide you some of the latest creations sent by our fellow members. I just have to say that I'm really happy to see many creations [...]
Hello, Link King Source members! Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! Before I start featuring new fan creations, I want to remind everyone that the results for the Animation Source Awards are almost here!
Ok, so back to business.
For Fan Art, we have _caitlin_'s fantastic drawing called Kiara, which is basically a picture of Kiara going on a walk, surrounded by pretty butterflies. Nest, we have another fantastic drawing from Lunewen titled In Rain, a picture of a sad Simba standing in the rain. We're happy to have amazing artists contribute to the site! Keep up [...]
It's been (almost) 7 years since Balto Source is opened, and I think it's time to face it : I don't have enough time and motivation to hear and solve the members conflicts on this site, not as much as I would like to anyway.
So, I have decided to take a drastic decision.
Balto Sourcers, please welcome Grey Wolf as your new webmaster!
No, this isn't an early April Fool joke! You may not know Grey, but she's a very willing person who is a member since almost the beginning of the site and who has done a lot for the french side : I know she'll do a good [...]
Singing cartoons themes on Youtube has become a fashion lately, and I already posted one or two like this, but that one is the german version and it's very well sung!
This video has already received 11 215 views - in only one week! Looks like TaleSpin still can attract a lot of viewers!
The nominations are now finally over, and we are currently (in the words of Toby Turner)
tabulating your untabulateable nominations. The ASA nomination results will be broadcast
LIVE at Livestream.com, on Tuesday 8th February 2011, 10:00PM GMT(UTC)/5:00PM
EST/9:00AM Sydney and should last approximately 30 minutes.
Hi there TLK-Sourcers! This is Sardonyx with the Lion King Source Fan News after quite some time! Before I start featuring any new fan creations, I'd just like to alert you guys that the Animation Source Awards nominations are over in just two days! Please do get your votes in if you haven't done so already. Here's the official website; remember to read the individual awards pages and the rules!
Attention all FaceBook users!
The nominees for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards have been announced. While there aren't many surprises, animated films certainly take up a good portion of nominated films.
The easiest film on the list to recognize is Toy Story 3, which has received a total of 5 Oscar nominations--tied for the second-most in animated history. The five it has been nominated for are: BEST PICTURE, BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY, BEST ANIMATED FEATURE, BEST ORIGINAL SONG ("We Belong Together"), and BEST SOUND EDITING.
Also on the list is How to Train Your Dragon, with 2 [...]
Hello Lion King fans! How goes it? Tovah here, writing my first fan news. So bare with me for a little bit, ok? XD Before I start announcing the fan creations of the week, I want to remind you guys that now's your last chance to vote/nominate who you think should be in the Animation Source Awards. For more information, check out the official website.
Now back to the regular business;
For the Fanart section of the site, we have a skilled artist named GoddessOfTheWolves and her Kovu fanart, Kovu. I would also like to mention Sofiel's fanart named Growing Up for this [...]
After a long hiatus, the Sourcecasters are back! Well, two of them... It's been so long since Episode 7 was recorded, me (Skulblaka_Shur'tugal) and Swords of the Wolves decided to make an episode and get it up just to say we could. So here it is: Sourcecast Episode 8: We Are Men!
In this episode, we discuss several things, including the Animation Source Awards, Mulan Source, and the upcoming Annie Awards. Due to complications with the regular podcast host, the episode has been uploaded to YouTube, so click on that video above, and start listening!
Did you know that a graphical novel version of the fan-favorite episode "The Old Man and the Sea Duck" was released in 1991?
Well I sure knew about the comic version, but not that one! So I bought it, and you can read that 48 pages book right here.
My little review : this is a simplified version of the episode. Some of the events are changed (especially the beginning, with Wildcat already in the plane when Baloo has to go through the "Mirkle Pass", and he eventually gets hit by a...coconut.)
The art on the characters is [...]
Well what a wonderful start to the year it has been! Now before I start with the fan news that has all requested news by members of the site I would like to say a warm welcome to our new Article mod NavaTheWise.
I would like to put this request at the top of my list, now I must say that this forum topic is a Must See! You will be missing out on a lot if you do not read though this, The Nomes - A Grand Excursion is packed with interesting information that even I had to read over and over just so I didn't miss a bit.
I have also been requested to place a work of music up, [...]
It's been a long while since I've been working on that, but it's finally here!
Lately, there have been many issues surrounding the moderation of fan creations, and in particular the fan characters : too many characters to validate, long waits for validations,... But the biggest source of problems, is that each person has different opinions on what SHOULD or SHOULDN'T be accepted in this section. And this leads to conflicts between the members and the mods, and none would really know what rules to follow.
Well here is my solution. No more characters deactivated! [...]
Hey TLKSourcers! Sardonyx here, bringing you the latest Fan News!
First, I'd like to mention that it is now nomination time for the Animation Source Awards! The AS Awards are an official site award created by steet to get unknown but talented users that create excellent work for this site. Check out the forum topic or the website for more information!
Now, back to the regular news!
I'd like to start by mentioning some excellent Fan Art. Firstly, I'd like to congratulate bambamXD on her very cute artwork Simba being chosen as Selection Of The Week!
Next, I'd like [...]
After Greece recently, it seems another country is getting a release of TaleSpin DVDs : Czech Republic. This follows the same pattern : 4 episodes on each DVD.
Also, another batch of TaleSpin DVDs has been released in Greece, which seem to follow the content of the american ones (volume 1 then volume 2) even if they are cut into a lot more discs.
So I guess this means it did good sales. If it stays successful, maybe we could finally have a way to get the remaining 11 episodes in good DVD quality? (rather than ugly Youtube quality!)
Recently, I have acquired a lot of TaleSpin merchandise, so I will post them regularly here.
First, here is a very rare french book that I think has never been released outside, and was probably produced in very small quantity.
This one has a strange format (see the photo), larger than A4, which made me unable to scan it entirely. Nevertheless, you'll find the scanned version to download in the TaleSpin comics page.
Quick summary : "Baloo has a delivery to make but Karnage damages the Sea Duck to prevent it. Kit finds a few tricks to help Baloo and make fun [...]
A message from Conay:
So, hello fellow TLKS members! Hope you all had a great Christmas and got many gifts/presents! And also, Happy New Year to all of you here! Hope that this year will be great for all of you!
First of all, quick note: remember my very first news here, when I mentioned "The Most Original Fan Art Style 2010" contest? Yes, it was too late for me to work on it, just like on the other Sources except BS, but this year we will have it. Yes, "TLKS Contest:The Most Original Fan Art Style 2011" will be up and running really [...]
Hello once again, dear LATTS members! Hope you all had a good Christmas and got lots of gifts/presents! And also, Happy New Year to all of you here! Hope all of you will have a great year of 2011!
Now, back to this week's fan news... This week we're providing you some fan creations of this week.
" Classy " by Oha. Stunning piece of art! Good job, Oha, and congratulations on making it to a must-see list!
2011 is starting very well!!!
I had announced a few months ago that there would be a Disney Afternoon Vinylmation line released. On the page, there were logos of Rescue Rangers, Ducktales and Darkwing Duck, and I was already complaining on how TaleSpin is always left out.
Well I'm taking this all back! 'Cause here are the first information :
"These Vinylmation™ Figures will be limited edition and sold in open windowed boxes of two, similarly to the Wall-E/EVE release in 2010. The first set will feature Baloo and Kit Cloudkicker from Disney's [...]
