Shorties Watching Shorties esq.

Hey man, I hope you'd make more stuff similar to this. It reminds me a lot of Shorties Watching Shorties, but I'm pretty sure that's what you were going for. What can you do with some Mitch Hedberg skits?

I've always been a fan of Birbiglia

And that is why this flash is amazingly perfect!

Great style

That felt like a quality piece. I have to agree with TheReviewGuy, deal with the pauses. Perhaps just edit them out so it runs at a steady pace. Although I had no problem with them, apart from the falling scene.
Heh, I probably wouldn't say this is the start of an all new trend though. LazyMuffin has done a bunch of these.
But anyway, the toon made me laugh, and the animation didn't detract at all, it enhanced. And thats the main thing. Kudos!

McBean responds:

I'd agree, this isn't something that's really groundbreaking in terms of animating comedic skits. There actually was a 20 second tangent and a longer pause after he jumps from the tree that were cut out, so it could have been worse. I was allowed to take artistic liberties, but I feel like it's generally not my place to disrupt the storytelling aspect of the original bit.
