I made this intro, which is a part of a series i was working on a lot last year. Its production slowly came to a stop due to script issues and rewrites. Basically if I ever get a chance to pitch an animated series for TV I'd probably do this.

Anyways, this submission to newgrounds is the opening titles for each episode of the show. Each episode is structured to start with a prolog scene of the crime happening, then this plays, and the episode begins.

I am super nit picky about credits, titles and all that stuff that decorates the bookends of movies and shows. So ultimately I made this to see if i could nail the tone I was going for that encompass the entire series. It helps me ground myself after making these intro and tests even to continue writing or other basic things.

I know it's short and there is no actual story here or anything but hopefully this will be entertaining enough to watch.

STORY: In Chamberland, a city of crime and chaos, and where the police force isn't funded and treated like dirt. The cops can't quite do their job as efficiently as needed. 3 Detectives, Turk, Todd, and Tony (The T), quit their jobs as cops in order to become pseudo-informants. Without the criminals, nor the cops knowing their identity, they are able to break certain rules in order to get evidence and clues cops needed but couldn't get to nail crooks who have gotten away with their crimes. The T are caught in the struggle to balance their grey area of a situation. How right is it to commit a lot of minor criminal actions to bring down dangerous criminals? And how much do they take advantage of the world not knowing about them?

ALSO, THE CREDITS HERE ARE NOT ALL ACCURATE. THIS IS JUST A TEST AFTER ALL

hmm...

What I got from it:

By the looks of it. It has a kind of Lupin the 3rd feel, but now it's from the inspectors' views. A kind of comedy based on the way it played out. There will be three inspectors. A sort of Three Stooges. They will solve crimes and all that, and there will be that dastardly villain. It has the feeling of a cartoon from back then. Similar to... Maybe Secret Squirrel. That's it... Secret Squirrel. That's what this reminds me of.

OR

It COULD be from Lupin's view and these guys are thieves. That would explain the zip line, hiding behind the brick wall, and going into the factory. It's really that guy with the scar and the LACK of much to suggest they are detectives. Besides the coats, hats, and that guy. Of course... They could be the kind of detectives that do THAT kind of work... Spies I guess.

Questions:

1. Is the animation for the episodes like the animation to this?

2. No cops?

3. Needs more to convey which direction the story is. Thief or detective?

4. This is just a wild guess... But is it "The T(eam)"

Other:

1. This probably wouldn't fly as a opening if it were to be on air, but like you said, it's a test. There are some small problems, but they would fix them if it were to go on air.

2. What might fit perfectly with this is gadgets in-show.

3. The ending reminded me of Venture Brothers.

4. Love the look and symbolism. Especially the end.

To tell the truth. I can't really tell you whether this is good or my full honest opinion unless I see an actual episode with this in it. Sure a opening can be entertaining, but like a title, if it doesn't have much relevance to the story as a whole then it would be like starting an episode of Dora the Explorer with Michael Bay explosions.
