What would happen if the ugly duckling never grew into a swan? A sad tale that would be.

Thanks Newgrounds for frontpage, and thanks to the honest reviewers who gave it a chance.

Ok...

Umm, have I got this right? The guy was a metaphor for the ugly duckling. He's all fucked up, because he had a bad childhood. He beat up the guy to stop the baby from being as fucked up as him. Then put the baby in the toilet and sat down, like a bird would do on a nest to protect its young.
Was that right? There might be something I'm totally missing.

Nice easter egg by the way.

You're there. It's not really a complex story, it's just really difficult to get some people to understand it, even with the title. Maybe I should have had the main character interact with ducks in the beginning, before his walk. People will just dismiss anything, rather than have another's idea linger in their head, to think about. I've been caught doing it too.

Holy SHIT!

damn, that was fucking disturbing on so many levels. On the literal sense, it's horrifying real. on the philosophical sense, it's shockingly well-spoken and even more frightening that the former.

hmmm...

This is one you really have to look at to get. It's certainly shocking, and I think some of the other reviewers got caught up in that.

Hell, it might take me a few more tries to understand... But it certainly made me think. I think that people are thinking of it as actually happening, and not more of a metaphor for what's underneath. The latter is how I took it, anyway.

I'm still not entirely sure what to think... but I'll certainly be thinking about it for a while.

Best movie I've seen in a while...

I used to watch the Reading Rainbow cartoons u did, and play the Bill Cosby Fun Game. They were fun, but this was on an entirely different level. The art style really suits the subject of the cartoon. Good job.
