MyToons.com, one of the best online animation communities, now has a ‘Cartoon Classics’ channel on the Vuze Network. Vuze (formerly Azureus) is basically a bit torrent client which allows users to publish and share original DVD and HD quality video content on its network.
The channel features classic characters like Betty Boop – one of the world’s first animated sex symbols, and the cigar-chewin’, spinach-lovin’ Popeye the Sailor.
Paul Ford, president of Mytoons.com, had this to say about the channel:
“With the recent rise of CG animation, The MyToons Cartoon Classics Channel is a great way to look back at the hand drawn origins of animation and appreciate how the art has evolved.”
“We recognize the vast creative talent that went into these classic animations and hope that they will not only entertain, but will also inspire the Vuze audience to create compelling new high resolution content.”
With this partnership, the community’s reach has now extended to millions of users already on the Vuze network.
You can also watch the cartoons on MyToons.com, and even easily embed them on your site.
Watch a classic cartoon titled ‘Popeye the Sailor Meets Sinbad the Sailor’. Truth be told, I have always had a secret crush on Olive Oyl. So, there.
