When the fate of the holidays rests on the shoulders of a fat Mall Santa...
Enjoy! Sorry it's a little rushed, had to get it out for the holidays! We think it turned out pretty sweet. What do you think?

Delicious!

There may have been a few moments where the combat scenes needed more visual oomph, I don't think it takes away from the flash. All it really needs is a white flash here or there or a screen shake.. or maybe some other visual trick I can't grasp.

Either way the whole style of it was fantastic and I salute you.

Decent animation and a really good effort

This animation was a bit long, but the animations weren't repeated so that show lots of effort. The cons though are that most of the dialouge is very hard or impossible to understand. I suggest working on being more clear with your dialouge during recording or put subtitles on the bottom. Also, another big problem is the sounds jump constantly. It is constantly going from very quite to very loud throughout the entire movie. This caused me to constantly have my hand on the volume knob so I could turn it up and hear the quite parts then turn it down on the loud parts so it wouldn't blow my ears out. I'm not gonna knock too much on the quality of the animation because you showed alot of effort so the general quality of the art shouldn't be criticized much. Just make sure to improve on your human body art and animation, it is lacking a bit. Well I hope this review helped and make sure you keep it up.

Thanks, and I love the constructive criticism, it's the whole reason that we've gone from crappy all-tweened animations, to this, and it is what will drive us forward in the future, I took your advice to heart and you can bet I'll be using your advice for our next release! Thanks again

Great work, Really funny

Great job, this had really funny 'Ren and Stimpy' like animation gags, and awesome ridiculous anime attacks. I loved the escape part where they zoom out on a sleigh, bloody hilarious. The animation was really good, some of the poses were a little strange and there was a bit of volume inconsistency with the sounds/voices but overall it was way more entertaining than these other christmas animations. The music is awesome. The jingle bells playing as he looks to the sky made me laugh and I thought it was hilarious that he was in agony as all the mall santas poured out of his skin. Sound effects were very much appreciated.
