Juiceball is a satirical commentary on the All American pastimes; baseball and fast foods. A whimsical look at the serious issue of performance enhancement drugs in sports.

We were a little surprised that any offense was taken by what we considered some pretty tame spoofing. Tastes and sensitivities vary, of course, and maybe we could have guessed, but we really see this weighing in as rather gentle irony, not caustic ridicule. We hope that people will appreciate it in the spirit that it is offered.

Humor has always been a good way to bring up a touchy topic, but hitting the funny bone sometimes entails some discomfort.

In this case we are struck by the observation that we Americans are in turmoil over what we put into our bodies, and what we know we shouldn’t put into our bodies. We often tell each other what we should do, but then we have trouble doing so ourselves.

We seem to want the “More-Bigger” even when it could kill us. Why?

I really appreciate how good the animation is. It's great to see how far this goes. There's just always more stuff happening here. A lesser cartoon would have just stopped with the steroid stuff. I love the juice listings at the beginning. The music is nice too.

This controversy really deserves to be mocked. Everything is just so nicely cartoonish in this. It's quite creative. I don't know why the one guy dissolves in the first part. It's just good and creative.

This is funny

I thought this was funny. Graphics and animation were excellent. Excellent voice acting. I guess this shows that steroids is considered cheating but if we all eat like "americans" instead of using steroids then we will all end up being slow fat people. Nice idea of bringing up two issues that are going on in the U.S. today. It is said that about 3 out of 4 people in the U.S. is over weight. Again you did an amazing job drawing the graphics. Characters and backgrounds looked very professional looking. Excellent work!
