ASIFA is one of the most interesting and amusing projects of the last years, if you are an animation fan. The International Animated Film Society: ASIFA-Hollywood has embarked on an ambitious project to create an animation archive, museum, and library for the benefit of the animation community, students and general public. The first step is the creation of a virtual archive, and you can check out the first results on the site. Don’t forget to see how you can help with the project.
Following the links of ASIFA visit also Tick Tock Toys – Archives & Galleries. Food packaging, blog, cereal boxes, store displays, newspaper ads, animated commercials from 50′s, fast food, characters, gum card art and more cool stuff all related with cartoons.

And since it’s almost Christmas (and New Year) there are some Cartoon Radio Network Podcast Holiday Special Editions with cartoon episodes and the top ten cartoon Christmas songs.

Looney Tunes Hidden Gags. After you watch enough Warner Bros. theatrical cartoons it becomes obvious that the directors and animators liked to slip in little hidden gags during the cartoons. The site has some of those hidden jokes and gags, whose meanings can be understood by few people or were executed in the background or very quickly. Now you have one reason to you watch those cartoons again. (via Drawn!)
