  1. The “Best Animated Film” category was created because there really was no category
    for feature length animation and practically no chance at one ever winning. Instead they would tend to win the “Best Song” as a consolation. Beauty And The Beast is the only film to ever get a Best Picture nomination but didn’t win.

    I’ve been listening through past episodes and your reviews of various animated movies.
    I think it’s important to consider the times in which the films were made and the
    resources available to the animators of the time. Not everyone has a Disney budget.

    An American Tail was a great movie and it showed that you didn’t have to be Disney
    to release a major animated film. It was the first animated film (that I know of)
    to beat a Disney film at the box-office. Before that Disney was practically the only
    company to release animated films, and they milked them to death with re-releases.
    The success of An American Tail gave other studios the courage to get into animation.
    Prior to that time, we might get one new animated film, usually from Disney, once every
    couple years. Now it seems there’s a new animated film (although mostly CG) every month.

    I recall seeing The Three Caballeros at the theater. It came out before music videos
    and wasn’t that strange when you look at some of the other animation from Disney at that time.

    Cars was a movie filled with Americana that hearkened back to the glory days of
    Route 66. The whole idea of the town being cut off from the world after the
    interstate road is based on the towns and businesses that were destroyed when
    such a road was built to replace Route 66. A few towns and businesses have managed
    to survive, but a great deal was lost. Watching the film without knowing about
    Route 66 is like watching Rover Dangerfield without knowing who Rodney Dangerfield was.

  2. Hey! I love South Park too. Watch it as often as I can, but the movie fell a bit short for us.
    I would have rated it higher, looking back today, but what can you do 🙂
