** Update: Thank you, voters, for 1st place! **

Lots of thanks to Druox for the music and the mercury.

Visually it's inspired by the work of Lee Hasler and also a 3d short called, "Musicotherapie". I was going for a toy-like style, something clean and silly looking to contrast the dark and edgy music.

This animation's based very loosely on news articles about toxic toys/products originating from China. I also indict bratty kids, bad parents and greedy corporate retailers who care mainly about profits over people. The only likeable character in the piece is maybe the pit bull.

The style was fun to work with, though the challenge was adding flexibility or fluidity to such a geometric style. If I do this style again, I'd like a attempt a greater mix of traditional animation (squash/stretch and more frame by frame work). Making a walk-cycle other than the stiff-moving robot would be a worthwhile challenge too.

Thanks, Oney, for your review, I was wondering if any of NG's 'heavy-hitters' would comment :D

Great stuff

Great looking animation and an entertaining song. I like the lyrics of the song and the style of the visuals really brings it to life. Like your other toons this has an awesome sense of humor to it which makes it a very enjoyable watch. Keep em' coming!

Thanks Outlaw;

I think there's a big difference in making my own lyrics and theme, more control over the overall product of course.

Hopefully I can do another one in a few months. 8)
