I get the shock humor, I'm not going to say one way or the other because tv sitcom standard has been using the "arguing like an old married couple" -> ""sketch"ual tension" bit forEVERRRR. But! I did have a problem with the Scene.

Their lips don't touch. In fact their character graphics dont seem to touch at all in that scene. With such skilled character animation -- I've seen your tutorials jazza and am thoroughly impressed -- I was shocked that the characters who are supposedly touching have Gandalf's head go behind Saruman's like a cardboard cutout. I know it isn't an aversion or hiding of skill, as later Gollum interacts with the fish quite fluidly. So, this just seems lazy to me and it broke the immersion of the cartoon. Like seeing a character fake a punch in a movie, it just kinda messed up the flow. Especially for a shock joke, it made it less shocking because I didn't believe it and got distracted. I get the gist though. Good work, and maybe commit a little more to your shockers ;D

For those who complain about the gay thing, i don't fully understand why? The actor who plays Gandalf is gay so they used that here. Big deal, Americans (generally) aren't homophobic so we're ok with using it as a joke. If anything if someone openly hated homosexuals he/she would either never talk about them or blatantly bash them (and i guess if someone is hiding it he/she would put subtle insults, i don't really know). Here they just did it as a awkward twist to get laughs.

Anyways, it was funny and i enjoyed the art style and voice acting. Great job.

I would have to concur immediately that the random gay scene wasn't funny and was just overall stupid and disappointing. That one scene dumped a turd in the entire punch bowl and now I certainly don't want to drink any of it. Good voice acting however and it was amusing until you decided it would be funny, not immature and stupid, but funny to have Saruman and Gandalf make out. Whatever, man.
