If you are a child of the 80’s and 90’s like I was, you remember watching such shows as Ducktales, Chip n’ Dale, Resue Rangers, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, Bonkers, Quack Pack, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Marsupilami, Gargoyles, and many more. If you are not familiar with the Disney Afternoon Shows, they were produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and aired between 1990 and 1997. The sad thing about these great shows is not all of them are available for purchase to have in your own home collection.

I recently got in contact with Jason Martin Schlierman, creator of the popular site Open Vault Disney. His mission is to petition Disney to release these great titles and others such as One Saturday Morning cartoons and the 1983-1997 Disney Channel Original Series shows.

Lavalle Lee

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.

    i videotaped all of the Marsupilami episodes as well as the Bonkers shows. what i didn’t get was most of the Raw Toonage, nor most of the Shnookums and Meat shows. the local station didn’t carry the “Disney Afternoon” block, they aired each series as stand alones. the opening themes to the stand alones were a bit different than the block formatted shows. i noticed this when i taped the DA blocks from an affiliate 100 miles to the north of where i lived (thanks to an excellent UHF tv antenna).

      I agree with Marsupilami. He was an awesome Disney character. I loved him and his gorilla pal, Maurice. Marsupilami is my favorite 90’s Disney character.

    I’d like to point out Soccermania had already been released through things like the “Extreme Sports Fun” DVD, but I hold no objection.
