Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback I've gotten so far, you've made an old fanboy very happy.

This combines two huge passions of mine, one being the comic genius (?) that is Alan Moore and the other being kids programming from the late 80s which I would say is my biggest animation inspiration.

Believe it or not, one of the first ever things I ever animated/programmed was a crappy side scrolling Rorschach game where you go around beating up street punks, it was not only a fucking awful game but totally and unironically misinterpreted the source material, I would like to think I've grown somewhat since then but here I am, 5 years later, doing exactly the same thing! Perhaps just a bit more knowingly...

Love you all

Happy Harry

P.S. Thanks to Josh and Hans for their cameos at the beginning

Everything was better at the 80's.

I'd like to shake your hand and personally give my thanks to you for this masterpiece. Watching this brings back a lot of memories from my childhood television; He-Man, Mask (the one with transforming vehicles), Ghostbusters, Thundercats, G.I. Joe. The list goes on and on and we've seen nothing as close as good than those series. Well, everyone has their own favourites, but the things is that western cartoon in TV nowadays, is nothing but junk or just poorly made anime ripoff's. I've no knowledge of Watchmen, though I've been waiting for a hard covered re-release of the comic and I'm highly interested of the movie. Nevertheless this made me really excited and I've watched this over and over again in case there would be a whole episode after the intro sequence. No luck, so far. You've succeeded to catch the very soul of 80's cartoons in this opening, like; giving advices to children ("say no to drugs") and the annoying sidekick animal (Is he really in Watchmen comics?). Anyway, the animation was incredible, voice acting and the song was just like from those days, I just can't think of anything bad to say about this one... Oh, yeah! This sucks because it's only the intro! Not really, but you made me anxious, thanks a lot! Solid 10.
