Welcome to Clear Black Lines, a fansite for various animated movies and other random animation-related bits 'n bobs that have caught my fancy. I'm Annie, and this is my little corner of the web.

Daring to Dream: I've been doing some tweaks and spring-cleaning all over the website, so let me know if anything doesn't work! I've overhauled the long-untouched movie, sequel and prequel pages, which should be more useful now, with more general info about the films, DVD releases and other bits 'n bobs. I've also revamped the videos page, where I've given up providing downloads (it's just too much hassle) and am just going to link to videos that are posted elsewhere. Over in the gallery, I've added four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Crabby Conductor", "Dear Diary", "Detective Sebastian", and "A Dragon's Tail"), and over in the Other Mermaids section I've added Mermaids of Tiburon and Barbie Dreamtopia.

Daring to Dream: It looks like the live-action film version of Ariel's story is happening after all, which is something to look forward to soon! On the comics page I've added "The Christmas Spirit" comic, plus I've added scans from four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Big Switch", "Castles in the Sand", "A Charmed Life", and "Cheer Up, Sebastian") and excerpts from Disney Villains: Delightfully Evil to the gallery. Over on the section of other mermaids, there's new pages for Mad About Men and Peter Pan no Bouken.

Daring to Dream: At time of writing this, the Little Mermaid Hollywood Bowl concert with Sara Bareilles and Jodi Benson is a few days away, and hopefully there'll be some cool news and tidibits for fans that didn't get to attend. Here on Daring to Dream I've added a bunch more stuff to the gallery, namely scans from two books ("Ariel is My Babysitter" and "Flounder Loves Ariel"), one more Disney Princess comic, a few more colouring pages, and a few more activity pages. Over on the section of Other Mermaids, I've added The New Adventures of Peter Pan and Stephen Chow's Mermaid.

Daring to Dream: I've started scanning in books from the Grolier Treasure Chest series, and to start with four books have been added to the gallery ("Another Fine Mess", "Ariel's Painting Party", "As Fun As You Feel" and "Bee Nice") with the rest to follow soon. I've also added scans from Ariel's Song, a sticker activity book that doubles as a movie retelling picturebook, plus a few more pages from various Princess colouring books. To the section on Other Mermaids, there are new pages for the mermaids of Camp Lakebottom and 2015's Peter & Wendy.
