Alright cool, a spot in the top 10. Thanks everyone.


Hi everyone, Uptown-SlimJim here with a special treat for all the internet to enjoy. As you may or may not know, I've been a semi-regular here on newgrounds since January 2005. I've made three long-running series, one spin-off series, and one collection of shorts. They've all been met with varying degrees of success (The only time I ever got on the front page was when something got screwed up with the servers during maintenance) but they've all been original works and they each found an audience. Not bad for a guy who started tinkering with flash as a hobby.

Which leads us here...this will be my 50th cartoon on newgrounds, and likely my last. I've had a good run and I always felt obliged to go out with a bang. Devotees will know that every time I wrap up a series I like to finish with a three-part finale, well consider this single 24 minute long cartoon to be the feature length conclusion to the entire Uptown-SlimJim universe.

I tried to make this as easily accessible to newbies as I could, but it's also crammed with subtle winks and nods to things from past cartoons so longtime fans are sure to enjoy it a little bit more. Plus it stars all the major players from my other cartoons so knowing who those guys are would be a big help. The story is really about my character, though, and how he tries to get into the world of online entertainment. Call it vain if you want but after 49 cartoons of being a supporting character it's about time my guy had a story of his own.

This cartoon was a pretty big deal for me to be honest, and to help sell that point I invited back nearly everyone who had ever provided a voice of me before. What that means is that not only is this the longest cartoon I've ever made, but it also boasts the largest voice cast, including the return of voice acting goddess Rina Chan and a cameo by a very special guest. It also features several real bands who submited their awesome tracks to NG but, for whatever reason, don't always get them featured in a cartoons. I wanted this toon to have a real movie vibe and the live-band soundtrack and large cast went a long way to make that happen. So a big thanks again to the bands and my voice acting friends and contemporaries.

So that's it. I want to thank all my fans (Both of you) for supporting me all these years and enjoying my work. Sorry it all has to come to an end but if I don't stop this ride now I'll probably do this forever and I just can't have that. Hopefully this 24-minute fan service will make up for it. Oh, and if anyone complains about the poor animation or character models again I'm going to explode.
Peace out... and sorry about the long load time.

Brilliant job, mate!

I really enjoyed all your series, mate. And I also think your art still has great potential. Drawing everyday is pretty much all you need to do to improve.

Your bit with original characters and series... heh, you must know how I think about this whole thing.

Just don't stop. your next submission is always better than the last.

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

Thanks dude. Rest assured I'm always beavering away on something new. But newgrounds just isn't going to be in the cards for the time being.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

pretty awesome

So i just noticed you used my song in your flash! Very good flash, and i love your animation style so don't listen to what ppl say. I hope this isn't your last flash cuz u got a good thing going. Awesome paranoid android reference too lol

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

Hey, thank YOU for composing such a sweet little diddy.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Great job Jameson! This was everything I wanted it to be and the intro seriously blew the shit out of my ass. You obviously spent more time on the graphics but I like that you kept the animation style more or less the same... comically simple.

You know how I'm always flattering you and telling other chicks what genius you are with your cartoons and writing? Well I guess that will have to stop since you have stopped... I wish you got the attention you deserved and I hope the irony of this plot leads you to success.

On behalf of all the 10 ratings I want to thank you for 50 great cartoons. I hope that you're a dirty liar and will continue to make more in the future.

Heart, Dee.

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

Thanks stranger, but I'm content to let my impressive physique and snazzy wardrobe do all the flirting for me from now on.

Also I should have warned you about the intro, you need to see a doctor like right now.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Seriously good

I absolutely loved that. Probably the longest video I've watched on here and most likely the most professional writing style. The subtle humour of Family Guy (sorry if that's an insult) with a great story line.
I'm proud to have a song in it (:

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for lending the song, too

I didn't even realize it was 24 minutes until someone told me, top notch writing. I think I want a bigger part next time.

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

There won't be a next time. Also, you smell.
