GRAMMY Museum And Warner Bros. Present 'The Get Animated Invasion' Pop-Up Exhibit

The GRAMMY Museum® and Warner Bros. have teamed up to present “The Get Animated Invasion,” an interactive exhibit that celebrates the music that generations have come to know and love from Warner Bros. iconic animation shorts and films.

Warner Bros. has a long history of invading pop culture though music, from popularizing classical compositions to creating mainstream hits that stand the test of time; the latest of which is the animated feature Smallfoot, featuring an all-star voice cast and original music including a new song from Niall Horan. The pop-up exhibit will take over the GRAMMY Museum’s second floor, Aug. 19-Sept. 9, 2018, making this Get Animated’s second pop-up exhibit following their inaugural invasion in New York last fall.

The CW’s Constantine Animated Show Is Being Turned Into a Full Movie

For a character who had his own show canceled after just one season, years later Matt Ryan’s take on DC’s snarky English spellweaver John Constantine is still surprisingly flourishing.

Is there a special formula for Disney animated films?

Before Disney became the animation powerhouse that it is today, it suffered monumental losses because of a series of commercial flops in the ‘70s until the mid-‘80s.

In 1989, however, Disney released a film adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic, “The Little Mermaid,” which became the highest-grossing animated film of that year, trumping “The Land Before Time,” and winning the Academy Award for Best Original Score and Best Original Song (for “Under the Sea”). An unexpected heroine, Ariel ushered in what is now known as the Disney Renaissance.

Besides “The Little Mermaid’s” iconic songs, one that stood out during that time was the color choice for Ariel — the stark red hair that shone even more brightly when in contrast to the greens and blues of the sea.

BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES Cast and Crew Celebrate 25 Years and a New Blu-ray Set

Twenty-five years ago, Batman: The Animated Series premiered on the Fox Kid’s Network as one of a litter of cartoon shows that was made to run five days a week for a year or two, sell some toys, then disappear into obscurity. At the time, nothing in entertainment was more disposable that a weekday afternoon show aimed at kids. But Batman: The Animated Series was special, from its animation style to its storytelling, and it was leagues above all other animated adventure shows of the time. Which is why so many years later it remains the most beloved series of its kind. So beloved, in fact, that it’s receiving a high definition restoration and getting the deluxe treatment on Blu-ray later this year.
