Happy Bill Murray week!
This will always be one of my favorite flashes.
Like Ghostbusters Murray Himself, Timeless.
I can remember this cartoon being passed around my Computers class in 10th grade. Back then, the five kids that were addicted to Newgrounds (myself included) would finish their work, load up NG, and watch this, usually more than once.
It's a very different kind of humor. The jokes in this Flash are subtle at first, just being kind of odd, rather than a "WTF!" kind of deal. Slowly, I enjoy that the cartoon delves deeper and deeper into surreal humor. The rising action is sweet, gradually building upon a bizarre premise. This makes the climax a moment that really should go down in history: the Fountain of Murray.
"What about the art?" "What about it," I say. Stick figures are usually the sign of an absolutely abominable Flash, the insignia of laziness and brilliant ideas gone to waste. Here, however, nothing would have been more suitable. Simple art forces the viewer to focus on the humor and the truly unique style. I'm struggling to classify it as any specific genre.
Plot, sound, and art form a beautiful union in this production, and it's worthy of nothing less than a 10, simply because it's well-done, and there's nothing else like this.
This review just flatters me like crazy. :)
A Nice Little Flash
I thought this was very well-done and original. The look of it was also clean, and simple. Which is good because it doesn't distract the viewer from the story, but it still looks nice.
I guess only Bill Murray can make bursts and infinite patterns of his own head.
Even though it's stick figures the content of the flash itself overshadows it. Hell the stick figures don't look half bad. You have a good sense of how to use humor, and the finale was one of the best bursts in a flash I've seen.
A legend forever
This should be in some sort of collection.
Your masterpieces are way too overlooked.
I don't know how that makes him bill murray or why the clock crew cares so much about him.
But this was great.
