UPDATE: Thanks powers that be for putting Hamster Lovin' on the front page. And thank you everyone who wrote us such great reviews and 5'ed this movie.
Bob the Cat tries to nap but is repeatedly interrupted by an overly affection and misguided hamster.
I made this cartoon as part of a school assignment. My last two assignments (Rainy Day and Silent Film:Holes) were silent films involving animating simple shapes as attempts to get expression through posture and gesture alone. This last assignment was an attempt to bring what I learned about expression into a cartoon with more physically complicated characters. I still deprived myself the use of dialogue...mostly. This time around I had a lot of help from co-animator John Mazz. Without him, it would've just been a square Bob the Cat and a triangle Hamster.
