Thanks for watching and for the daily 3rd place! :D

don't forget to RATE this video! - It helps out a great deal :)

My apologies for this not being higher res. I've given up trying to get it working in Flash. If you're keen to see a higher res copy please check it out on Youtube!

"Happy Birthday Bob!" was a real labor of love, combining over 5 weeks of rewrites, restarts and a lot of crying in the corner of the room. I am so chuffed at the results and hope you enjoy it as much as I hated making it... wait, that's not right.

This short is dedicated to my big brother, Nick :o)

The author seems to have the same sense of humor as Catburt the evil director of human resources from Dilbert.


CamoRalph responds:

haha, interesting. I've never actually watched Dilbert ;)
To be honest this cartoon (and a lot of the Bob stuff I've done prior) was based off that awesome Looney Toons short with Daffy Duck vs. the artist... I forget what it's called, but it always stuck with me growing up. Such a cool approach to breaking the 4th wall. Bob will certainly evolve over time though.

Thanks for watching! :)

Heh,
This reminded me of family guy too.
I also felt the end was creepy.


CamoRalph responds:

Hopefully creepy funny? It's all tongue-in-cheek after all.
Plus after seeing so many "dudes raping each other" toons blaze through here I'd hope this toon was pretty tame by comparison.
Thanks for watching dude!

This reminds me of family guy for some reason. Anyway, it was funny till the end, then it got creepy...


CamoRalph responds:

Oh god, really? Yikes, hope they don't ALL look that way... I used to dig Family Guy but it's just pointless fodder now.
Anyways, glad you liked it dude! haha, yeah the ending was a bit of a game changer.

Brilliant! Good Animation; Good Audio; And Rather Funny Too!

My only critism is that it look a bit distorted when scaled. Potentially shrink the vid's physical dimensions? (In order to fix this)

But Overall: Fantastic to see new and original content

Sweet! Cheers for watching man.
Yeah I agree things are a little distorted. It's actually meant to be that big, but was made as a sort of "hack" job using movs. Converting ToonBoom to Flash is like fighting a bear with a toothbrush.

Thanks for the feedback and for voting! :o)

Oh god, that was so funny my sides still hurt. Probably the best thing I've seen today, I loved it. The only problem I could possibly think was that it wasn't longer, but even as it is I believe it to be fantastic. Good job! I hope to see more like this
