Author Comments

Seasons greetings, everyone! I made this as a family Christmas card for all my friends and relatives, but figured I'd share with my NG friends as well. It's about 2 minutes long, so enjoy and have a safe and happy holiday season.

QUICK FAQ:

WHAT IS LAZLO?
A gerbil with personality disorders.

HOW IS THIS ANIMATED?
Almost the same way I did Vegeta in DucktaleZ 3. Lazlo was modeled in 3D, and I rotoscoped/traced his movements into Flash on close-ups, and vector-rendered his animation on far shots to save time.

CAN YOU MAKE MY CARTOON?
No, but thanks for asking.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO MAKE? MAKE ANOTHER!
About a month. I probably won't make another next year. This was just a one time thing for my friends (seriously this time.) I'm moving on from Flash after I finish my last cartoons for my parents in a couple of weeks. But thanks for everything! Merry Christmas!

DON'T MAKE ANOTHER! THIS SUCKS! I DON'T AGREE WITH YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR!
Feel free to vent your anger and frustration in the comments or kick a wall. I'm afraid I wasn't aware of what you were looking for in a cartoon, but that's simply because I don't know you. If you introduce yourself properly and make some constructive criticisms, maybe I could take you in account next time I make something. Ah - who am I kidding? Even you negative reviewers sometimes make my day with the odd witty remark. Merry Christmas to you guys too! Keep on blammin'!

Thanks for watching! Happy holidays!

Wow

Your animation stlye is top notch! The smooth actions and facial expressions were delightful for the eyes! The sound was pretty good too. Backgrounds. Pretty damn decent. Punchline was great.

Lazlo rocks!

Chris is putting up his gloves? Say it ain't so!

You've been one of my favorite animators for nearly a year. It'll be sad to not see any of your projects next year, but I wish you well and safe holidays.

Much love from your absolute biggest fan. <3
