By far one of the best flashes I have ever come across on Newgrounds. No joke. The animation was terrifically great! The characters were lovable even though it lasted almost 10 minutes. Amazing job to all of you and the people who made this. Remarkably great job. :)

This was simply amazing. The style of animation can easily become a cinema-movie stuff!
Thanks for sharing this piece of art =)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Watching I got the same feeling of watching a short film shown in an actual theatre before a movie. I found one of the best features of this short film was that it was told with only the with music and actions rather than words. This makes the narrative that more powerful because we the viewer are being forced to pay that much more attention to their reactions and expressions to understand the story. Which brings me to my next point while the story is an age old tale it is incredibly well done and told in a beautiful way. The world was amazing, the characters were interesting, the interactions between the characters was good, and seeing how everything was unfolding was a delight. Now I did have a few problems with the short but they minor the first was that I felt it was too short in its tell after the middle of it it felt somewhat rushed like we were trying to race to the ending I find nothing wrong with that because from time to time it is needed, but I would have liked to have seen it go on for a few more minutes. Now the second and only other problem I had the after credits scene which suggested that there would be a sequel. Now the problem I have with a lot of movies or even some short films is that they make unnecessary sequels, that usually never live up to the original, which is why I express my concern on this point, because if there is a sequel I can only hope that it lives up to the original source. Also what's disappointing to me is that I have yet to see the Oscars take the animated short films that are created into consideration for best animated short, which is something I would like to see, because let's face it this is probably Oscar material because of the level of storytelling which is incredibly well done. Other than that I'm probably going to favorite this and say that may you continue to gain laurels for your incredible hard work.
