Canadian Mountie Delighted To Find Tumblr’s Cartoons of Her Stopping Crime With Bear Cub Partner

Two and a half years ago, Constable Suzanne Bourque was interviewing witnesses about the activity of a too-friendly-for-his-own-good bear cub who’d been pestering visitors at the Terra Nova National park in Newfoundland and Labrador when the bear cub himself showed up. The ensuing pictures were un-bear-ably adorable, but, in the way of things on the internet, ran under the radar for a while until they finally got their chance at becoming internet gold.

If Merida Was A Cosplayer, She Might Cosplay Hawkeye, And It Might Look Like This

A while back, DeviantArtist Brianna Garcia created a fantastic image mashing together two famous archers – Merida and Hawkeye. Now, cosplayer Lisa Marie has brought it to life. Filed under: “Dammit, why didn’t I think of this?” (though I have done William Merida Wallace) You know, considering Disney owns Marvel now, any chance we could get an alternate universe one-shot where Merida is that universe’s Hawkeye?

Mom With Triplets Does Obvious Cosplay – Merida’s Brothers

It’s not often triplets find a suitable family costume so when one mom saw Pixar’s Brave featured three brothers, she knew it was only a matter of time before she’d dress her boys up. On her blog Three at Once she says she spent a month making their costumes for a Halloween trip to Disneyland. “The whole night the boys loved the attention they were getting for their costumes and it was nice to have them dressed as Disney characters,” she says. “All night they insisted on saying hi to all of the little girls dressed as Merida saying ‘it’s our sister.’”

Game of Thrones Just Got More A Lot More Bearable

When I say “Game of Thrones has cast a bear,” I don’t mean one of the Mormont ladies from Bear Island, which is where my brain went when I read the headline “‘Game of Thrones’ add 5th country, casts bear” on EW.com. Hey, I’m looking forward to the Bear Island women. They’re awesome.

Oscar-Nominated Films, Starring Animals

I love movies. I love animals. (Some animals. I have a frog phobia. Don’t ask.) So it goes without saying that I love Old Red Jalopy‘s animal-themed spoof posters of Oscar-nominated films, originally posted on Next Movie.

Zero Dark Birdie. Dingo Unchained. Lynxin. I’d watch ‘em. Wouldn’t you?

Alicia Keys Sings The Gummi Bears Theme Song As A Ballad

Alicia Keys went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Did she perform one of her biggest hits? No. She performed the theme to the 1980s animated television show, Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears. And she did it as Alicia Keys.

Brenda Chapman: “I Was Hired [at Disney] Because I Was a Woman”

I’m not making assumptions. I was simply told that by the executive at Disney Animation with the cold blue eyes who sat behind his desk. It was 1987. They were getting some flack because they didn’t have enough women in creative positions–especially their story department – their current count: 0.
“We need a woman. And you’re the right price.” His exact words – I kid you not.
Brenda Chapman, speaking of her first job in the animation industry, fresh out of school, in the Disney story department.

Jezebel’s right when they say that another way to put this would be that Chapman was the first in a very long time to not be passed over as a hiring prospect because she was a woman. But it’s just as sad that she was removed from her brainchild because she refused to stray from her vision of a mystical action drama starring women and replaced by a better connected guy with less feature length film experience willing to make it “more marketable” by upping the comedy.

Today in Slapstick: Soldier vs. Apron-Wearing, Flower-Growing, Helicopter-Flying Lady Bear [VIDEO]

Dum Spiro – HD (ESMA 2012) from Dum Spiro on Vimeo.

A gladiator on a quest to deliver a message has to get past a pair of bears first in this short film from students at French animation school ESMA Montpelier. It’s Looney Tunes-esque slapstick with the added benefit of the poor soldier being chased by a wooden helicopter equipped with squirrel grenades, which is the sort of thing you don’t see nearly enough of in old-school Saturday morning cartoons.
