Mehitabel by Kumoashi Mehitabel by Kumoashi
If anyone can point me to a direction where I can buy/download the movie "SHINBONE ALLEY" from 1971, you'll win all my internets. I'll draw you pictures. ANYTHING!

When I was a kid I used to watch this movie several times, and I remember attempting to draw Mehitabel (with little success). I mostly forgot about it as I grew up, but some images still remained in my memory. A few days ago I decided that I wouldn't rest until I'd find out what the movie was called, as I couldn't remember even that.

Today, I found it! Glee! Now I just want to see it again. I've searched the net, but no help. Anyone? =)

Half an hour with pen and PhotoShop. Just because I wanted to see if I can finally draw her.

Oh yeah. She reminds me SO MUCH of Seras from Hellsing... X)


EDIT 30.5.2007: I GOT IT! :boogie: And I recommend this movie, the animation is wonderful, the music brilliant, and Carol Channing's voice is just amazing. Woo!

I'd never heard of Mehitabel until she was included in part 4 of Winnie the Pooh Meets the Toxic Avenger.

You may have to be familiar with the Pooh's Adventures meme to get the jokes, but if you're not, consider yourself fortunate.

I guess I'm fortunate, I've never heard of this thing! :D But that's great, that she's not fading into oblivion. So thanks for the link, even though I'm very confused now. ;)

Loved this movie since i was 5 in 86 and has been one of my fave animated movies, they have the uncut version on youtube and DAMN this cat chick is foxy.

It was Cheetara, Cleo from Heathcliff, M'ress from Star Trek TAS and her that got me fascinated with catgirls and also turned me furry.

Anyone thinks this gal influenced Cleo on Heathcliff?

Just watched it for the first time and was curious if any fanarts had been made. You capture her very well I might add.

the movie had a lot of good art moments, but my only gripe is that she abandoned her kittens in the end..... but still it's a good movie

When I first heard about this movie! I notice there was a Cute, Sexy Cat Girl named Mehitabel. So I found her very attractive! So I can't wait to see this movie! ^_^
Nice drawing!

Thank you for the faves! ^^

Oh, you must see it, it's a brilliant movie. I remember being very attracted to Mehitabel as well the first time I saw the movie... and I was a ten-year old girl back then. X) Maybe even younger...

Love that movie! I think my favorite part is the end when Archie's singing about her and she goes back to Shinbone Alley. And speaking of Seras, I actually did a Halloweenie pic of her dressed as Mehitabel... [link]

I've seen your picture before! And I recognized all the outfits, too. ^^

That's pretty much my favourite bit of the movie as well, because of all the energy, even when it means that the movie is ending soon.

Wow, this is really accurate! Nice job

I just got this from Netflix and Mehitabel is so damn sexy! You don't see sex done well in cartoons like this one. And of corse, nobody can beat Carol Channing's voice. As for the actualy movie, it was certainly unusual, but the story was really nice and Mehitabel's animation was amazing.

You're right, sexy is the exact word for Mehitabel! I got both the movie and a cd with the radio version (lasts only for half an hour but has most of the songs), and I have one song or another playing in my head most days. The movie is a treasure. ^^

Thanks for the compliment! =D

No problem. This is probably the most accurate drawing of her on DA so far anyway.

PS, my favorite part of the movie is when she sings the scene from Romeo & Juliet.

Beautiful work. She's the jessica rabbit of cartoon cats. I have a small memory of the scene when I was reaaaally young, in which archy is climbing out of the water, and says hi to a random rat, and it's been bugging me for months where I remembered that scene from, let alone the title. And I just found out today it's from this movie. Made by Mel Brooks no less. Luv that guy.
As for clips, or movie itself I wish I could help you out. I've barely been able to find screen caps myself. TO AMAZON.COM!!!

That scene's right from the beginning of the movie. And Amazon has it! :boogie:

It's a great movie, I managed to get it, and have watched it several times by now. Carol Channing's (Mehitabel) voice is AMAZING. And Mel Brooks, yay!

Thanks for the fave! :hug:
