Hey the first episode of "smile for Ranger Doosh" is now out on newgrounds! Huzzah and hurray!
Ranger's brother, Greenburg, gets on American Idol and Chello has an idea to make the gang hideoudiously rich!
Made in the style of Tom goes to the mayor.

I LOVE IT!!!!
Not quite sure how to feel....
I'm a bit confused. Was your intent to emulate just the visual style of TGTTM, or also the Tim and Eric brand of humor? Now, I'm not saying you should be penalized for doing either one, because it's perfectly reasonable to take something as inspiration, but the problem, as I see it, is that the way T&E write and perform their comedy is so incredibly progressive and innovative that they themselves are the only ones with the mindsets capable of making it work.
But like I said, I can't tell from the context of the cartoon whether you were mostly trying to do your own thing or not. If I were to critique this simply based on what's here and nothing else, I'd actually compliment you on a solid script. The jokes could use some work, but the comedic timing on said jokes is actually pretty on-par with what I'm in to. My biggest gripe would probably be with the performances by the voice actors, which needs some work.
But yeah, just remember, when you create something that's undeniably similar to something else that's already out there, you're doomed to be endlessly compared to them, regardless of whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. And even though this is already similar to something that exists on television, in the context of Newgrounds.com, it's highly original because there's nothing else on this website like it.
So yeah, I guess my advise would be to keep it up, but don't hesitate to make changes to your own formula when you're making future episodes. In any case, it's refreshing to see there are other Tim and Eric fans out there.
This has been compared to "Tom Goes to the Mayor" which I feel is a mistake.
While you use a similar art and animation style to that show... I think the creators of TGttM should be SHOT for making UTTER CRAP!!!
You, however, have put together a show that is entertaining. Your dry humor held my attention the whole time... even though it got a wee bit long there toward the end. The scene where they were actually at American Idle dragged a bit.
Anyway I went in with a negative attitude because of the comparison, but it turns out I really enjoyed watching it and laughed quite a bit.
Nice job... I'll be looking for the next one!
You Beat me to it. I am actually working on a flash similar to this one. By that I mean, My Friends an I are making it like that T.V. show, "Tom Goes to the Mayor." It is still in development but it will be out soon. You're video was Great and I hope to see more. :)
Nothing new, sorry but it felt like I was switching the TV on and was watching a some random tvshow .
You have some good a ideas and jokes but put them into something that wouldn't be shown on TV.
Feeling sorry for yourself doesn't get you anywhere...
