What is Toon Train? Toon train is what happens when six animators mess with each other's projects.

Started for the deviantart group 2-5secAnimation, five artists all started a short film. They each passed the start of their film to the next artist, who took it in a whole new direction. Then those artists passed the film to another artist. This continued for eleven cycles, until five complete short films were ready.

Watch in amazement as plotlines morph and blend into one another! Hunt for hidden secrets, contributed by even more artists! Experience the convoluted amalgam that is the Toon Train Coolab!

Special thanks to Tokugoru and Kadoyuu for their marvellous animated contributions!

WHAT THE FUCK !!! -that's what you will hear in your head a lot watching this collab.I recommend to those who will watch it first time to watch RJ and friends first because the Seal story might get you wrong look on this project which is fucking insane with a nice animation,lots of weird ideas and cool music.

*********************SPOILER ALERT***************************

Really well done movie, I believe I can only do it justice by explaining why I liked each short film in turn, so if you haven't watched it yet, don't read this.

The first film made me incredibly sad, the amalgamation of a man-made device with an animal is very strange, especially the combination used for the movie.
I found the graphics for it very effective in delivering sadness for the death of the characters, even though it makes little sense.
The worst thing about 'Seal' is that it is in the worst possible place, as being the first movie makes it very hard to watch and tolerate.

RJ and Friends- is so different from the first movie that it doesn't seem to quite belong either, however the story is more interesting since it has very strange characters.
Although they are playing very cliche roles, it is still fun to watch just to see how it ends up, and the mask-pulling trick was very entertaining.
RJ & Friends had a fantastic ending that left ample opportunity for the next movie to pick up from.

Puffin-Man is where things started to make more sense to me, as I could tell the blimp was from the second film's action scene.
Again the characters are really imaginative and whacky, funny thing to watch a cow with wings merge with a mysterious humanoid, only to fight its enemy by spewing a piano and dropping some sick tunes.
I can safely say I've never seen that before.
Awesome movie.

Robot 3 is the only movie I believe I cannot do justice, as I disliked it greatly, however I watched it anyway, as it helped me to make more sense of this collaboration.

Butt-Glove has a constant upbeat tune to it that simply makes whatever happens in it seem less serious, which added to the hilarity, for me at least.
The antagonism between the clown and the red-had man is a thing to be sung about in epics for ages to come, the fact they go to many levels of heaven, contending for an unknown reason, yet end up being friends anyway is something I greatly admire.
It does not seem to end, but for a short animation it hit my spots.

AS A WHOLE- The Collaboration is great, fantastic work from each artist here, the music chosen, the characters drawn and the imagination put into it.

If you put more work into it in order to improve the quality of the clips, this could become a movie that would take the internet by storm and reach out beyond NG's audience.

Well done guys.

I felt that all of them had a certain charm to them. The seal one was actually rather touching and I love the absurdity of the other ones.

Great work everyone!
