Old Brew


super friendsIn a little less than two weeks, the San Diego Comic Con will commence with an expected attendance of over 100,000 fans and industry professionals. I will be down there among the masses, trying my best to attend all the Asifa-Hollywood events and Mark Evanier’s panels – and maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll get a chance to explore the dealers room. This year I am scheduled to host three events – all on Friday July 15th – so if you are looking for me, here’s a handy guide to the three places I’ll be for sure.comic con3:00-4:30pm – Disney Coming Attractions: Chicken Little, Sky High, and Pixar’s Toy Story 10th Anniversary and Cars
Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios celebrate the 10th anniversary of the groundbreaking release of Toy Story with a special panel featuring Pixar veterans Pete Docter, Joe Ranft, and Academy Award winner Gary Rydstrom. We’ll be discussing the film along with a preview of clips from the upcoming special-edition DVD release – and an exclusive peek at Pixar’s next film, Cars. Disney Feature Animation will also present an exclusive look at Chicken Little, with director Mark Dindal and producer Randy Fullmer. Also, from Disney’s live-action adventure comedy Sky High, I’ll introduce actor Bruce Campell, director Mike Mitchell, and screenwriter Paul Hernandez. So join me as I host this must-see event in Hall H.8:30-10:00pm – An Evening with J. J. Sedelmaier
I will be hosting a panel and screening with Comic-Con special guest J. J. Sedelmaier showcasing some of his best cartoons and commercials. Room 6A.10:00-11:00pm – The Worst Cartoons Ever
If Ed Wood were an animator, these are the cartoons he would have made. I’ll be presenting an all-new selection of some of the worst animated films ever made, including our regular favorites Super President (that one-man weapon of mass destruction), Mighty Mr. Titan (the limited animation physical fitness propaganda cartoon), Johnny Cypher in Dimension Zero (the lamest space cadet ever created), and Clutch Cargo (he with the live-action lips) along with (new this year) Rocket Robin Hood (and his band of “Merry Men”), Rankin-Bass’s King Kong (move over Peter Jackson!), Spunky & Tadpole (a clueless kid and his retarded bear pal), and Bucky & Pepito (hands down, the worst cartoon series ever made), among many many other hilarious stinkers.
