Join best friends Timothy and Gregg as they go on a hike up the tallest peak in the seemingly benign Twilight Mountains! However, their experiences while on their way up prove to be a mountain to climb...

This is my second proper animated short, and fourth animation overall. This animation was conceived in the early Summer of 2007, but could not feasibly be made because of my lack of skill with Flash at the time so I had to shelve it until further notice. When I did start work on it again, I redrew all of the backgrounds and changed some of the story to get what I have finished here. Spent just over three weeks of work on this, and it's paid off considerably since the last animation I made.

LOL brokeback mountain

the second below me was explaining this has slightly gay notations. no offense... but it came across to me as a little camp-camping trip lol. seriously no offense... it was an excellent story, and i thoroughly enjoyed watching the entire thing. the avalanche was a little meh though. i think your style and characters are truly wonderful. and i have fallen in love with your raccoon! your choice of animals is awesome too! kangaroos! foxes! the cutest furries of all! omg! lol.
i have favourited you . because you are an awesome story teller. also i forgot to mention in your newest animation, I LOLLED at you putting a dundee poster on the wall LOL. Zee Irony iz not lost on me ya. :D:D:D you take care care sir and keep up the AWESOME work.

Hehe, none taken. The relationship these characters have is of two good friends, although I guess it's up to the viewer's imagination how these scenes are interpreted.

I'm happy that my characters are appreciated :) The raccoon (Timothy) has since appeared in my 'Get Your Skates On' short, as for the roo, I haven't given much thought as to when I might animate him again ^^ Thanks :)

Cut KeenyFox some slack

He may be a bit new to Flash but, at least doing a great job
Cerebus/Tirrel is also a furry yet your giving him a standing ovation

This flash has great comedy that makes up for the not quite polished animation

Thanks for sticking up for me, like. There is plenty areas where this one could have been better, but alas, that's the way things go I guess.

Quite an interesting story, two friends going on a trip and a few things go wrong... the bear attack and the birds were an interesting thing, the avalanche can have a bit of work.

Your background style is what I like, makes you focus on the charters more than the scenery. In all due respect though, it has a bit of Brokeback Mountain to it... sort of. Overall, a great story.

KFoxyFox responds:

The irony is that I have never actually seen Brokeback Mountain, so any similarities are coincidental. I think this probably draws some inspiration from the National Lampoons Vacation in terms of how things go wrong, personally.

Thanks for the review!
