To be honest, I've been visiting and lurking around Newgrounds for a LONG while, like since back in 2001, but this is the first time I've ever submitted content to the site. Truthfully I've been more than a little intimidated to submit a film due to the the high caliber of animators and artists I know frequent this site. Right now I just hope I submitted my .swf correctly....

This isn't my first animation I've made, but it is my latest and I'm very proud of it, and I worked very hard to get it done in time for the holidays. This is actually a sequel to another short with these two characters but I figured I'd just start my Newgrounds "career" with one film for now. Best not to get ahead of oneself.

So as always, please give any honest feedback. It's all appreciated. I have no disillusions about my work being the greatest thing in the world so my feelings will not be hurt. I hope you find it funny, or at the very least find some other redeeming quality about it.

*UPDATE RE: AUDIO: I've uploaded a different .swf of this film. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this fixes the issue. Please let me know if the audio still gets out of sync if you click away. I believe that it works properly now. All thanks are to "NitrogenousBeing&qu ot; for the help.

**DAILY 5TH 12/17/2011** Wow thanks Tom, the Newgrounds staff, and everyone who watched this. I certainly can't complain about 5th place. There are far worse positions to be in. I very much appreciate any views/reviews. This sort of feedback definitely gives me the inspiration I need to do my next project.

***12/19/2011 FRONT PAGE FEATURE*** Woah. I'm speechless. I didn't think anything that didn't involve video games or My Little Pony was put on the front page but I'm glad to be wrong. Thank you to everyone who watched and/or rated it. This is more than I could have asked for, considering the first 12 hours of the upload the audio was completely out of sync.

****2/9/2012**** For those interested in this festive toon, the original short I did with these two characters is now uploaded to Newgrounds. It can be seen here: http://www.newgrounds.com /portal/view/589716

Boy, I Sure Do Love Originality.

Granted this animation wasn't perfect, and at first glance I thought it was going to be a cheesy flash, but the first clever joke about the Inuit trackers kept me enthralled.

This was extremely entertaining. The characters seemed original and fresh, and they both were very funny. The script dished out one clever joke after another and most of them were quite humorous.

I hope to see more of Jukes and Pogo, and you, in the future. The whole flash gave me a classic gem feel. This is truly a nice surprise for the Christmas flash season.

Well done.

Very Entertaining

It felt very classic Newgrounds to me. Great character design, cool story and very well animated.
You might want to export the sound quality higher for the next one, altough the bad sound quality made it more like an old school Newgrounds animation for me, which felt nostalgic.

Great job, I'm looking forward to more

Well..................................

That was surely original.
The reference to the thing was pretty freaky.
But in any case, Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!
