Talk about patterns! First, we had a pattern of forgotten/minor characters of royalty; now there seems to be a pattern of forgotten/minor donkey characters! (See my posts on “Pinocchio”and “The Three Caballeros”)!
In January, I wrote a post stating how I’m taking an animated film history class this semester and that I’d keep updating my blog with my progress of the class, new information that I’ve learned, and the projects that I’ve completed. But as you’ve noticed (or probably not noticed), I didn’t write anything else about my class! Well, the semester is near its end and I’ve taken the final exam for my class.
The reason that I didn’t write anything about my class here I guess, is because I was concentrating on my Disney Canon project and didn’t want to spend time talking about other things. Also, the amount of information that I learned from this class was quite extensive, so I didn’t know really where to start.
But maybe, when I finish my Disney Canon project, I may write posts about what I’ve learned in my class. Thanks for the patience, all!

A couple of weeks ago, I reblogged a post from a fellow blogger (Scotty Jo)’s site.
Scotty Jo is a fellow lover of animation and has a dream of creating an animated film himself. The film will be called “Moon Bear” and is based on a story that he wrote himself during his college years. He has already started working on it, finished the storyboards, etc. You can learn more about it at his blog:
Wow, I can’t believe that I’ve done 30 of these already!
We are still in the Disney Renaissance and are taking a look at arguably, the best film in the Disney Renaissance. This film was a massive hit, both critically and commercially! This film received a standing ovation at the New York Film Festival! This film was the first animated film to be nominated for the “Best Picture” award at the Oscars! This film is my favorite animated Disney Canon film! This film is my favorite animated Disney film! This film is my favorite Disney film! This film is my favorite animated film! And this film is one of my favorite films in general!
