Update on Shout Factory's Blu-ray release of The Plague Dogs:

U.S. label Shout Factory confirmed via social media today that it will work with director Martin Rosen to deliver an extended cut of The Plague Dogs. As a result, the label has postponed the previously announced street date of its upcoming Blu-ray release, which was February 13.

Supplemental features to be included on the release have not yet been finalized.

I do. I suppose we'll never know who was behind that idea for the end credits to have that at all other than someone taking advantage of whatever funky video effects they had to get Garfield's eyelids to move like that.

IMDB says the first theme song was sung by Thom Huge (Jon/Roy/Binky) and Desiree Goyette (Nermal). Huge wrote on the US Acres songs and Goyette wrote on the Garfield songs with Ed Bogas (going back to the specials).

Gary Owens announcing, Lorenzo Music as Garfield.

Second theme is of course sung by Lorenzo Music and the US Acres cast.

Season 3 opening was used in syndication, with I think the later version of the end credits, on green (season 5-6).

Thereby rendering "Friends Are There" almost obscure outside of one or two instances of a character singing the lyrics to themselves in the second season I think.

Season 7 had a "Garfield Rap" which is best forgotten (and not used on DVD). Most of the visuals were taken from the episode "Garfield Rap (That's Called Bein a Cat)".

It was pretty bad.

No surprises here.

Glad to hear, the original cut is worth every penny, probably why I still have the old UK VHS release I can't even play (being PAL).

"Animated Performance" by Nancy Beiman.

Here's another excellent book for anyone who is interested in learning how to animate. By itself it's a great course of study for students, with a very good teacher - Beiman's excitement and passion for the material is evident on the page. Nancy Beiman's many credits as an animator include A Goofy Movie, Treasure Planet, Fievel Goes West, Hercules and Fantasia 2000, and we get a look at how scenes with Goofy and Max were thumbnailed and constructed. Ellen Woodbury shows us how she crafted Rowan Atkinson's performance of Zazu for The Lion King, and the late great Art Babbit (who developed Goofy and taught at Richard Williams studio) also chimes in with some wisdom from a 1979 session.

This book sits comfortably on the shelf with other major animation textbooks, like those by Richard Williams, Preston Blair, Tony White, Eric Goldberg, Harold Whitaker and John Halas, and Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. It has some similar lessons but goes in its own direction.

You'll start with the basics - the bouncing ball, swinging pendulum, living flour sack, and a generic character called "Sam," but Beiman goes the extra mile to show how to give a character personality and make it alive and thinking on the screen. She also involves her cats as character models. As with other animation textbooks, advanced students will get the most out of this book but there's a lot here to inspire beginners and those who are merely curious about how an animated performance is crafted.
