Waterman and the gang find a film reel in the closet from 1926 containing a film entitled Watergent! Enjoy!

This episode has a few tributes, not rip-offs, to Mike and Matt Chapman of Homestar Runner. They helped me get my start by letting me work with them on Homestar and this is my way of thanking them. They loved this episode and I hope you do too!

Another great Waterman episode

I really agree with you that your cartoons are more enjoyable when you watch them without comparing them to other things, although the similarities are often undeniable. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I think it's really a shame you won't be posting your animations on Newgrounds anymore and I hope you'll change your mind. I don't see how nearly as many people could see your work on your site or why you wouldn't want it on Newgrounds. Either way, I hope you continue with the good work and I really love all the allusions you use in your animations. Most have a very Family Guy feeling, which is not a bad thing at all, but this one reminded me more of a Strongbad E-mail, also not a bad thing.

no, not really that great.

Im sorry, but i didnt find this animation piece that great at all. Before im going to explain to you why, ill make some comments about the technical aspect first.

The drawings were pretty nice, but nothing spectacular. A little bit too simple and standard, and this in combination with the very monotone backgrounds, made the entire thing come over a little bit boring. U used the oldskool black and white look, since it fitted the situation of the flash, but by doing this you took away the strongest point of the visual aspect of waterman, which simply are the colours. They are always light and bright and give the serie its own personality.

The voices i found extremely annoying. Yes, maybe to some the weird accent and poshy words may be funny, but i bet it also annoys a whole group of other viewers. Perhaps the entire old videotape theme just wasnt such a great idea.

The biggest flaw in this flash however, is the humor. U use (like other artists, e.g LegendaryFrog, Supersmashbros) the same type of humor, which should come across mainly in the dialogue. However, unlike the previous mentioned artists, this flash simply wasnt funny. No strong punchlines, comical situations or oneliners, just uniteresting dialogue with weird accent. And this is ofcourse really bad, because flashes like this stand or fall based on the humor. I cant give u any magical advice that will make the thing funny, u just have to find that out for yourself.

I know this is just an opinion and the entire thing may be hilarious in your eyes, but i just wanted to explain to you why it may be considered boring to others. Take care!

This is awesome!
The sound effects were amazing!
This is funny as hell! Not a moment of non-laughing involved (except for the beginning)
The graphics are very well done (as usual), and the humour is way up there to deserve a 10.
Nice job!
Ill still visit your site and tell all my friends and tell them to tell their religious leaders and so on in this fashion.

goodbye, waterman

Well this isnt the best episode to end your newgrounding on, but its your choice... go ahead with it. I have no clue why anyway. I do think, once again, you work needs a little more originality - however it was funny and less like Family Guy. It was more like Homestarrunner with the "Land" and stuff. Model t!
