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.

Really was awesome

Not gonna lie, the message in this flash is brilliant. I can really see this going on front page. You've inspired me to start animating. I really hope you're not done animating. I'd be cool to see walking animations rather than going the South Park route with it, but it really was quite good. The opening was brilliant. I've never seen any of your other stuff, but I'll have to look into it. Cheers.

Thanks man. This is the last cartoon I'm probably ever going to make for NG so I really wanted to go all out for it. I don't know if this'll get on the front page or not, and really I'd be a little upset if this is the one that finally made it, but you never know.

For the record

You are not a cartoonist. You are an artistic visionary. Sadly the internet is riddled with bad concepts, lame jokes, and idiots. It suppresses minds like yours that think outside of the box as people are sometimes afraid of originality. New things scare people. They like things that are vulgar and familiar to them. For example: Penis! See? I am sure someone just read that and laughed "haha he said penis!" It's things like this that upset me. Anyway, because of this harsh and undeserving ridicule we lose someone who could have been a staple author to newgrounds had you kept up this exception skill with your hobby. Needless to say, 10/10 5/5 I doff my hat to you sir, sorry to see you go.

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

In all fairness, I laughed at penis, too.

Thanks for the kind words, though. The reality of how things work over the internet, at least as how I've come to understand it, is it can be used as a platform by anyone to make anything for the sake of entertainment; for better or worse. And just like in the real world, not everything that's hugely popular is relative to how enjoyable or creative it is. So whether success is well-deserved or not, I think the most important thing is to know it was done for a good reason.
Glad you liked it, cheers.

A little too long if you ask me, but it was pretty funny anyway, however i think the animations could be better.

Agreed. Thanks for watching :)
