Happy VILLAINtine's Day!

     It's Valentine's Day, and for my money, there's already plenty of sweet out there. How about a little of the not-so-sweet?

Here's some of my favorite baddies from The Disney Afternoon! ... and also Snout!

There's So Much To Do!

     I had planned on 2016 being the year of The Disney Afternoon here on the blog with as many posts related to the much beloved television lineup as my fanboy heart could muster. Things started out well enough, but alas, didn't really pan out as intended.

     But this is a NEW year... with a NEW resolve! Therefore, I continue what I started last year by putting my own little artistic spin on a random selection of Disney Afternoon characters!

     Well 2016 turned out to be kind of a bust for me, blogwise. It started out well enough, but eventually... went PPTTHhh!

     But if there even is anyone still checking in, I thought I'd go ahead and cap off the year with a little drawing to spread some holiday cheer. And what better way to do that while staying true to the overall lackluster-ness that was Silly Nate 2016 than with this guy...

Meh-rry Christmas, everyone!

     Some friends of mine are moving to a new home and requested that I draw them this for their change of address postcard. It's sort of a mashup between Star Wars (obviously) and Calvin and Hobbes.

Can you guess which one of their cats is my least favorite?

Why Did The Duck Cross The Road?

     If there's anyone that still checks this blog, my apologies for the lack of posts lately. I'd like to say that I've taken the opportunity to travel more and enjoy the simple things of life during these past few summer months. But alas, the truth is I've downloaded Disney Crossy Road and can't seem to stop playing it. I guess there's something twisted, yet pleasurable about watching a wide variety of Disney characters get flattened by a moving vehicle.

     You'll notice I didn't even make the time to sketch some fan art to accompany this post. What's the point? The app supplies me with a screen grab every time Donald here gets run down. 

     See ya on the other side, folks... unless they roll out with an Uncle Scrooge character! Then? Who knows?

He Is The Thermal Exhaust Port On The Death Star Of Crime!

     It's Star Wars day! Since I've been posting a lot of Disney Afternoon fan art lately, I thought I'd keep it going by reimagining a few of the characters as they would appear in that galaxy far, far away.

Part Of Your Balanced Breakfast

     When I was a kid, my dad was the manager at our local supermarket. This job came with some perks from time to time. He would occasionally bring home some free t-shirts or stuff like that. One time, he came home dressed as Batman, part of a store promotion for the Caped Crusader's new cereal. Oh yeah... AND he was able to take my family and I to Walt Disney World... for FREE! One of these perks that I remember quite vividly was right before Kellogg's included character toys from the Disney Afternoon in their cereal, and my dad had one of the packs pictured above for me and each of my brothers! Needless to say, I was ecstatic!

     In remembrance of this pretty insignificant event that apparently held a lot of significance with me, I'm adding to my series of Disney Afternoon characters with the ones from this oh-so-cherished 4-pack of mine.

Oh, and thanks again Dad!

     The other day, we finally got our first look at the new DuckTales series premiering next year! Suffice it to say, I'm excited! Sure, it's just one little pic, but there's so much there! Scrooge and Donald are in their comic book color schemes! Louie's wearing long-sleeves while Dewey isn't! What's that all about?! Is that Webby? I don't even know, but I'm giddy!

     But more on all of that in a bit. First off, I thought I'd roll out some more Disney Afternoon characters. Here we have the heroic trio from the aforementioned DuckTales - Hubert, Deuteronomy, and Louis... aka Huey, Dewey, and Louie!




     In the comics, the nephew's occasionally had female counterparts named April, May, and June. Cute, right? Well, DuckTales conveniently consolidated these three into one in the form of the toothache inducing adorable Webbigail Vanderquack!


     Now I don't know what the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook has to say on the subject of television reboots, but in my opinion, the main thing they need to be is different. Sure, it should strive for the same overall feel as the original, but for the most part it needs to be it's own thing. For years now, fans have been wanting a new DuckTales, but what boggles my mind is that once one was announced, most of the fan reaction (that I read, at least) was negative! "They better not screw things up!" "It better not be stupid CGI!" I couldn't understand it. Why weren't they as glad as I was? Disney's finally giving us what we've been wanting for so long and all these naysayers can to do is look in this gift horse's mouth! Then it was announced that the new DuckTales wouldn't feature the same voice cast and the Superdoo really hit the fan!

    It occurred to me that what these people wanted wasn't a NEW DuckTales but the EXACT SAME DuckTales! And why not? The original was great! But unless someone invents a real-life Time Tub, we'll never be able to go back and watch the exact same series again for the first time. What we can do is be optimistic that this new show will be good and thus enjoy it for the first time. Different doesn't necessarily mean bad, you know? I, for one, like the most recent reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the new Mickey Mouse shorts are terrific! Change is rough for everybody, but with these types of things, it's been proving more and more to be pretty awesome.

     If we as fans want there to be more of these nostalgia revamps (and I DO!!) then we need to put the negativity in check and approach things with a more open mind. And if you don't like the new DuckTales, then just enjoy the old! Almost every episode exists on DVD! 

So you see? Everybody wins ...especially Disney!
