This is the sequel to LittleFoot. If you haven't seen it, this movie will make very little sense ;)
I originally intended the littleFoot sequel to be a movie called 'Waterlollies' of around 6-7 min. I emailed a hero of mine, legendary Pogues whistle player Spider Stacy (the main influence on my own musical tastes) to ask if he would create an intro theme tune of 20-30 seconds that I could use at the start of every Brackenwood episode. He agreed, but he went better than that. He got some mates together and created this amazing 3 min song that kicks arse.

When I listened to the tune for the first time, all I could see in my mind was Bitey rocketing over the Brackenwood landscape. So I decided to create a standalone movie that was basically a music video for this song.

You won't find a story here, just a 3min action sequence that follows on directly from littleFoot.

"Waterlollies" is my next Brackenwood installment which will be finished sometime in March 2007. Check out my site for some preview screenshots.

I also wanna thank all of Newgrounds admin, staff and members for your support of my work. Couldn't keep doing this without ya.

Wow! That's a totally 5 stars movie.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Coming off watching one of the unappealing washes of imagination and waste of talent and hard work we call "art flashes", I simply HAD to go back and watch The Yu Yu again.

It does something that almost no other flashes with great animation do: be entertaining. It's one of the most exhilarating and fantastic pieces of work ever uploaded to this website.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Umm i'm amazed.Would love to know the point and the reason of all the video above this review but it's already fine without these extra explanations.In very impressive way the video matches to the music.You achieved Your goal..Good that :)

Six years later and STILL the best!

I remember seeing this when it hit the scene, the intensely striking animation married to perfection with some highly raucous music from the Pogues.. seems like every step Adam Phillips takes, he leaves a footprint'a gold! okay, a little audacious a comment, but this man brought the game to Flash movies back in the day and is still succeeding with his highly organic animation and sensibilities, we're lucky to have such a gifted worker in the net animation world.
I also like that, after the second time the YuYu try to snatch him up, Bitey goes like.. full throttle! I like to think he's got a max speed, but it's gotta be a big danger for him to bust out the hoof-burnin' pace, enough to 'round the planet in about minute! Also, the nerd in me who's seen Bitey's story up to know has to wonder.. the things he's seen in his dreams about his people, did he remember some of that on the sight of the YuYu and took his time making sure he banished 'em ALL at the end there? Finally, excellent touch on him steaming in the moonlight after a considerable exertion, thanks one million times to Adam Phillips, Spider Stacy and the rest for bringing this peerless chase scene to the world!
