I'm sure he's got time to collect a few hats while showing me up.

Good luck everybody, I sure hope I see at least one cartoon that doesn't involve literal elephants!

JoHobo2 vs. JerrodStorm I think it's gonna be Jerrod's because his humor is pretty cool and his animation has a lot of mouvement.

You might be a bit disappointed, then. I'm gonna take a leap and go for something a bit more serious, or at least more meaningful.

Damn it - i have ideas for both... now i have to decide on one...

I have an idea that would include both the idiom and an actual elephant, but I don't think I'm going to use it.

Pahgawk vs. Hikarian Hum, both have an awesome art style and are great in animation...But I think the winner will be Pahgawk for some reason.

Awww, he said I have an awesome art style, how nice:)
I actually kind of agree, Pahgawk has much more expirience when it comes to animation contests, and his style is much more stable than mine. I won't give up without a fight though! I'm guessing that I'll be experimenting once again. Foooor science!!!

I don't think mine is going to go in the comedy direction, but definitely not serious. I guess it's more actiony than anything else.

I'm making this song for my entry. Can you guys listen to it and let me know what you think? I'm not really good at making songs, but I think it sounds cool so far.

Not bad :). Only thing i can suggest is to fix the sound of the drums a bit, especially the snare, because they seem a bit harsh compared with the mellow vibe of the rest of it. Also it doesn't seem to loop seamlessly but that could just be down to the newgrounds audio player lagging.

I wanted to do non-comedy, but it seems like it would be easier to write something comedy or at least non-serious for this.

This theme is tough.

Ok thanks, I'll try and fix those things. I just wanted to make sure it didn't sound annoying to people.

I think the way of scoring the open round entries was different from the bracketed rounds?
Either way I can't find the scores anywhere

Based on the point system listed in the winner's listing here:

The judges selected their top 16 entries in order from best to worst, and entries were scored on an inverted point system based on placement in a judge's list. A few judges entered 18, and so the base number of 18 was used for scoring. For example, an entry in the #1 spot of a list received 18 points, while #2 is 17 points, #3 is 16, and so on until #18 is 1 point. Points were accumulated from all judges and sorted to create the list above, which is ordered from most points received to least.
