Ah...more promises kept. I'm happy to announce on this nice Sunday of March 26 that I have just added a few more things to this website.
They include the following:
+ 2 new pictures in the coloring section (many thanks to the UK Boomerang website)
+ 3 images in the pictures (2 courtesy the Boomerang site again)
MARCH 24, 1911
Joseph Roland Barbera was born in New York City, NY.
A happy, healthy 95th Birthday, Joe!
As promised, I have an update!
Today is March 23...it is significant because it's Thursday, one more day till the weekend. :-]
Anyway, I have put up two video clips! I've put up the Ford Mondeo commercial and I've also put up the Intro for Tom and Jerry Tales.
Thanks Michael for giving me the intro.
Well folks it's the day after Spring started and it's snowing outside. Ah winter's revenge.
Anyway, things have been a little weird in Rome's world for the last couple of weeks. I've not had the time to devote to updating the site like I had wanted to. I have a bunch of stuff that I want to put up and do with the site. One of the big things is to clean up the HTML code in this site. No worries, that's not the only thing and that won't be the first thing I do. I'm hoping that in next couple of days or so, I'll have some new stuff up...barring I don't get stuck in a snow drift on my way home or get the flu again...oy!
Oh, I've seen the Karate Guard. I'd say, it was enjoyable. It had a lingering bit of the old classic magic and it had some funny moments.
Rome stands on his soapbox and address the Tom and Jerry fans on March 3, 2006. It begins...
I've gotten a lot of emails recently regarding a lecture that got a lot of press last month. I have a rebuttal:
Tom and Jerry were created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera at the MGM studios in 1940, NOT by Walt Disney.
I will not put the link on site...the lecture does not need any more press.
Rome steps off the soapbox.
Ok...I've been getting a lot of emails lately about the New Tom and Jerry Tales, mostly from the UK. It looks like Boomerang is going to begin airing the show on Monday the 27th of February at 5:30 PM. Check your local listings.
Anyone know if it's going to be showing on the US version of Boomerang?
Good news everyone...I've been gettting a lot of emails like this:
"Boomerang UK has just advertised that a new show, Tom & Jerry Tales, is coming. (possibly near end of Feb) "
Anybody hear anything about this for the US? I don't get cartoon network so I haven't heard much. :-[
So that's pretty much it for the news/rumors for today, February 8th, 06.
I should have some more updates to the site sometime soon. I've found some nifty things. Anyway, today is the 19th of January and in about 8 days the New Tom and Jerry cartoon stroy and direction by the man himself, Joe Barbera. Here's the info:
A new Tom & Jerry directed and written by Joseph Barbera and produced by Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone will primere on Friday, January 27, 2006 at 9:00PM on Cartoon Network.
There is also a rumor...and I do stress RUMOR...A series of more new cartoons has been said to be in the works. Can anyone confirm this?
Also, if you are interested in movie posters: THIS SITE has links to where you can purchase them.
Oh, and one more thing, I have this downloaded and will put this up eventually, but I'll just share the link with you:
Ford Mondeo - Tom and Jerry Commercial
I think this came out a couple of years ago, but I missed it since we don't get that car in the US so no commercial for us.
