I recently worked on a movie with the VadFlaaten twins.
Trying to keep with a similar style they had used, I produced this goofy goat.
As soon as I saw him I thought, "How can this goat not have his own movie?!"

I wasn't sure what to do at first, but my brother actually came up with the basic idea, and I went from there.
So now I've been working on this in my spare time for just over 2 weeks.
I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

I left some special credits at the end of the movie (for those of you who I mention)

Papagenu (He's My Sassafrass) - Tenacious D



Rated 5 / 5 stars

A simple and amazing flash

Graphics/Animation: 9
Normally I expect a lot of detail and a lot of special effects and perfection with graphics and animation, but this flash was simply amazing. The goat was so simple in the way that it was drawn and the way that it moved, but everything ran completely smooth. A lot of the characters were sticklike figures, which normally would have lowered the score significantly, but again it was the way everything moved that gave this such a high score. I even enjoyed the siezure lights going on in the background because it really gave the viewer a good idea of what the goat was going through in the trippy world. There isn't much to improve here. The backgrounds were simple, but fit the characters perfectly so not much to do with those. All I can say really is add more detail, but if you don't want to...that's fine too because this was a damn good flash.

Audio: 9
All of the sound effects where exactly where they needed to be throughout the entire movie, and I can't even stress how extremely important that is. Even the music was absolutely perfect for the situation the goat was going through with being on a shroom trip. Really just a great job altogether in the Audio category of your flash. Really impressive. Keep up the good work!

Humor: 9
I was laughing as soon as I saw the goat eat the mushroom. Mainly because I saw "Goat Trip" as the title, but I didn't really know exactly what to expect. Everything the goat went through while it was trippy was hilarious. From the smiley sun all the way to it jumping on the dinosaur's back was absolutely hilarious. When it ended up in Mario Land and jumped off the pipe and you added the sound of a Mario jump I was laughing pretty hard also. Great job with the ending and goat being on the guy's back...very funny ending. I really enjoyed what you did with this one!

Originality: 10
To be honest, I don't think I've ever really seen a goat as the main character in a flash. I've seen the RAB and flashes including cows, penguins, and everything else, but I've never seen a goat. If I've never seen a goat then I've never seen a goat tripping on shrooms haha. This was just a great idea, and I really think you should keep up the good work with original ideas. Chances are I'll check out your other flashes to see how original they are as well!

Overall: 10/10
I originally had this as a 9/10 score but sometimes you just have to push things to where they belong. You had a lot of great ideas with this movie, and it was something that really impressed me all around. It may have been simple in many ways, as I've stated constantly throughout this entire movie, but it really packed a punch when it came to the viewing experience. I'm really looking forward to seeing more from you soon!

Thank you SO MUCH!
That was such an amazing review! It actually touched me in a way, reading all of your positive feedback! Every aspect of your review was broken down, and detailed.
As an animator, it means a lot to hear these things. I can't express how much it means to me to hear your kind words.
Thank you!!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I loved it this

MUCH!!! I've never seen an animation with this sort of style and it was very appealing. I loved the way they walked, the way they moved and I liked how you put that music along with it cause when they get together...ooooh, you know they're gonna make some noise! and also, this is the first review I have written for ages so consider that an awesome-tonic compliment.
But sadly... my mascot, Mr Magloo is too good for your goat...

The awesome-tonic comliment has been taken whole-heartedly!

I think the only true way to compare mascots is a dance off!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Too funny

I really didn't see anything I disliked at all. It was hilarious from start to finish. I thought the animation was extremely smooth, not choppy at all. The multitude of backgrounds really sent this flash over the edge. And it makes perfect sense to have so many backgrounds when you have a goat thats on a crazy trip haha. I think it's fully deserving of a 10/10 and a 5/5. Excellent work.

At first I was going to have like 3 kind of generic backgrounds, but my brother warned me that was something me flashes lacked, and good flashes had.
So I changed them as often as possible, with little extras (like the little propeler duck things)

Good luck on becoming a member of the RRC. They really are a great group

Expression is a key point to this flash.
And IMO should be in all flashes.
But since I didn't want the goat to talk (to make it more realistic) I had to resort to expressions.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I will indeed say that I am excited for a sequel. The Flash Was great, But it got a little too weird in the middle if you ask me

Great job and keep up the good work!

Thanks for the review.
I suppose it does get a little wierd. But that can be a good thing.
That's why it's only about 2 minutes. Any longer, and it would start to get stale, and drag on
