One for the kids. A little boy named Joe, lives in a far away land and has no friends to play with... :(

Sorry about the sound. I recorded it professionally in a studio for a dvd version, but reduced the quality greatly for the web version(dial-ups in particular). I'll try to get a better quality version up soon.

Thanks, all I gotta do today is smile, but all your great words have kicked me in the ass to get onto working with my next project. It's a music animation. My own song mind, so you should be seeing it soon.

Great!

This was magnificent! The animation quality was very awesome, with shding on almost everything, and nothing you drew were in vain. This is one of the finest animated movies i've seen in a long time. And you also have your very own character design, which i find very great, and most suitable in a cartoon for the younger audience. I also liked it how you shaded the corner of the window, so it looked like you were looking through a google. And i really dig the cold snow and icy theme. It's hard to make it look good, but you managed to do just that.

I'll have to assume that you're Quentin, since i can't find it anywhere in your profile. And writing a long story like this, with all these rhymes, must be a backbraking work. The sound quality could've been significantly better, which is such a shame on a great story like that. For example, i couldn't hear what Mr. Nobody shouted through the door in the floor, before Joe jumped down. But this is a marvelous story, and i could never expect the ending to have the outcome as it did, and i can't come up with a better scenario myself. Even though this is more likely to be suitable for young children in the ages of 5 - 10, i must say that i can easily watch this movie over and over again.

I really hope that you don't stop and let your animating skills go to waste. But of course, making Flash animations should only be beacuse for the purpose of having fun, and i truly hope that it's exactly what you're having. Fantastic work!

Thanks so much, the story was easy for me to write as it was about me. Yes, my first name is Quentin and my middle name is Joe. I felt alone as a kid and would often drift off in my imagination. I will always animate. I have 2 projects I'm currently working on and should be back oon Newgrounds within 2 weeks. Thanks again.

Well done

That was an excellent flash. I adored the art style. It was very simple, but very good. The animation was smooth. I really liked the story, wonderful rhyming. The only thing that was noticably bad was the sound quality. The voice acting was great, but the recording of it itself was not easy to listen to. I couldn't understand some of the narration b/c of this.
Overall, I enjoyed this a lot. I hope you make more.


PapaQ responds:

Thank you Salacia. I'm so glad my 4-5 months of late nights and tired eyes have brought a smile to you and the other who have left their comments. I am working on 2 new animations. One song Parody and another based on our haunted house and my nightmares! :-O

Wow, man!

I never expected to see something like this on Newgrounds. It was absolutely refreshing. Keep it up. Oh, and you could probably use a new mic, the narration was done wonderfully, but the sound quality was a little low.

Thanks again. I actually got the voice professionally recorded to create a dvd, but I reduced the quality for the dial up internet version (This one) I could stick up a better sound version if I get a chance. But thanks for your rating and good comments.
