Space Chicken decides to take a summer vacation, but will Fred and Sceb survive without him? This cartoon from has more animation than ever, and I loved making it. I hope you enjoy watching!
(Don't miss the deleted scene at the very end! And there just might be a hidden easter egg, too.)

Run time: 4:03, fps: 18, Written, voiced, and animated by JKR
EDIT: Front page? I'm honored. Thank you very much. I'm glad people are enjoying the cartoon.

It was pretty good. Funny in that sunday comics sort of way.

JKR responds:

Interesting, I never thought of it like a Sunday comic, but you're very much right about that sort of feeling. Cool, now I have something else to think about when making them.

Thanks for leaving a review!

Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

at least the animation was not that bad

the humor was laking and the voice acting was very bland. the only reason i didn't give you a zero is because the animation was kinda alright

JKR responds:

Sorry you didn't enjoy it. I disagree with your method of scoring, since a 1 out of 10 makes little sense for a movie that at least HAS humor, voice acting, and animation, but that's up to you.

Hope you find something on NG you like better! Have a good day.

Not bad.

It was pretty good, as is most of your stuff. It was amusing and the visuals were pleasant enough.

In at least one recording, there was some noticeable static. Maybe forgot to noise removal there or something.

I'm still waiting on your switch to masking for those blinks, btw. I remember giving that suggestion a LOOONG time ago. It'll look better and be easier to animate, so I dunno what's holding you back. Heh. If you need help or something, I could show ya, but I figure by now you probably know how to do it.
If you do finally switch to masking, I recommend making the masked part the eye pupils and white parts and actually having the eyelid behind it without the mask. That way, you could open the eyes with a single shape, and close the eyes by shrinking the shape.

Good luck to ya.

JKR responds:

Woops, I didn't notice the static at all. Yes, I sometimes forget the noise removal when I'm recording a whole cartoon. Do you know what line?

I see you're my "blink suggestion" guy. I always remember you specifically when I submit things to Newgrounds, you know. Figuring you'll show up and remind me, and I'll have to apologize again for not doing it! I just always have such trouble going back in to alter character models, because I'm so busy just doing the cartoons. Sorry! But I do still want to make it better, when I have the time. Could you explain it a little further to me? Maybe with a picture, if you have time? I can't seem to get the whole idea in my head, aside from just using a mask. If you don't have the time, that's okay, I'll try some things and hopefully it will work.

Glad you liked the cartoon, though, blinking aside. :)

i didnt find it that good
it was all talk
there was no action or anything just all talk

JKR responds:

Yes, my cartoons are mostly talk, you're certainly right. I suppose it is because I try to do them pretty often (weekly or every other week) and since I'm the only one animating the movements, it doesn't leave me much time. But I'll try to keep improving that. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, sorry you didn't enjoy it that much.
