I read the Post and point things out to you

While not up to the NY Times Arts section today (5 comic art bits), the Post had reviews of an animated movie, a theatrical play based on animation, and an animated tv show's DVD.

See "VeggieTales Crew Sails In Tasteful Pirate Story," by John Anderson, Washington Post, Friday, January 11, 2008; C06. To be honest, I'm partial to Veggie Tales although you'd be hard pressed to find someone less receptive to the 'faith' message of the earlier cartoons. They have a redeeming feature though. They're funny.

Then, along with everyone else, Disney's latest attempt to keep Times Square cleaned up is slapped around in "'Little Mermaid': On Broadway, Just A Fish Out of Water," by Peter Marks, Washington Post Staff Writer Friday, January 11, 2008; C01.

Finally Curt Fields has a review of a cartoon that I don't care for,
"Family Guy: A Big Tremor in the Force,"
Washington Post Friday, January 11, 2008; Page WE32.

And no Tom the Dancing Bug.

Yeah, I don't like Family Guy either.
