Short Version: I'm back from a 10 year hiatus and draw my cartoons now instead of using sprites. There's many more to come, although they will be quick 'n dirty because I have a family and a job these days.

Long Version: Hi everyone, I'm back to Newgrounds! Many aeons ago I used to make sprite movies - in fact, they're still in my profile here. Then I went away for literally a decade. Went to college, got a day job somewhere, got married... but this is the internet, nobody cares about that brouhaha.

So this is a quick short I made in a couple of weeks just now - while still working said day job, I'm trying my best to produce new content for here and for my YouTube channel - so I can be the internet animator I've always wanted to be. I'm still the same 'ol me as before, except you're going to see both parodies -and- original content from me now. But I can assure you, the sense of humor that somehow kept you all entertained despite my films' crappy visuals back then is still intact.

This here, is something original. I have plans for more short gags involving this unlucky fellow - I hope everyone likes it! You can also see it on YouTube and subscribe to me there if you truly enjoy it - I would appreciate it!

If I even have any 'fans' left from the 2001 era, you're all grown up now like I am! How is your life now compared to then? Tell me in the comments :)

P.S. Sorry for not including a play/replay screen. My future submissions will definitely include them.

Very short, but colorful and thematically different than the usual fare here. I can forgive the lack of a pre-loader and a replay button (right-click rewind works), because care was taken creating all aspects of the piece.
Huh, I was growed up when I joined NG in those wild-west days of yore. How's my life now compared to 2001? 9/11 was the catalyst for a steady stream of suckiness, that extends to this day, sry to say.

I loved the idea about this and it definitely made me smile (I love the Ren and Stimpy soundtrack! It suits it well!) but its just ... TOO ... short! A few more sketches would have helped convey this man's horrible luck!

DragoonFenix15 responds:

Truth be told, this is part of a larger short with multiple gags and skits. But I am determined to provide a new short or two every month, so I split it up into a one-gag-per-short basis. Once I get a few finished I may submit them as one long movie with redone sound as a "special edition" though. :)
