Disney Animation has been a cornerstone of culture for almost a century now, and it’s amazing how well this stuff still holds up. People still go to Disney World, buy Cinderella merchandise, and see remakes of these stories.

What better way to appreciate how far this animation has come — or hasn’t — than by enjoying a supercut featureing all of Disney's feature-length animated movies. From Snow White to Zootopia, “The Evolution of Disney Animation (1937-2016)" highlights the movements and trends in Disney, when it works and when it doesn’t. There are some forgotten movies and some stone cold classics, but you’ll be floored by how good and innovative the early animation still looks. However, If you feel a slight dip in the 80s and late-90s, sit tight, the goods are on their way.

What an unexpected, beautifully ridiculous situation:


via Beth Elderkin at io9:

Austin resident Noah Lee started going by the DJ name Muppetfucker in 1995, after he and a friend of his came up with it and thought it was funny. He used the name for six years, and owned several MuppetFucker domain names, including MuppetFucker.net. Lee told io9 the Jim Henson Company likely found out about Muppetfucker after he performed at SXSW in March 2001 and got a review in a local weekly magazine. A few days after the review came out, Lee got a cease-and-desist letter from the Jim Henson Company, which demanded he stop using the name Muppetfucker and hand over all domain rights.

“The day the letter showed up, I walked to my mailbox and opened it up, and when I pulled out that Kermit letterhead I knew right then it was over,” Lee told io9. “Many people said I should try and fight it or that I could pick something similar like ‘Puppetfucker,’ but let’s face it, nothing is funnier than Muppetfucker, as this latest round of people discovering the name proves.”

Annd here's that cease and desist letter, fifteen long years later...
