The Youtube version NOW HAS SUBTITLES.... I don't know if and how I can do it here. Check out my youtube if you want subs.

The template for this animation is the myth of the otter and the rabbit. Obviously I've replaced "Otter" with "Lizard." This is only because there seems to be a running gag with "lizard" having their fish stolen among native myth. The otter and the rabbit is the only instance where fish was stolen from someone other than lizard, so... I changed it to lizard.

So here it is Wrip and Calamity put aside their differences (grudgingly) for the sake of betterment... and when I say betterment I mean screwin' with ornery folk...No they won't drown... it's a shallow pool after it's mostly emptied....Can't have them dehydrating.^^0

Well worth the wait :)

Splendid work, as always. The animation, scenery and flow (particularly the storyboarding) was fantastic and applause inducing. The series continues to carry on in similar fashion, imbued with gentle care as well as heart and soul.

I don't mean to rain on the parade but I do feel the accent and enunciation for calamity feels a little forced and unnatural. I understand what you were trying to go for- but you shouldn't worry so much about emulating something in particular as you should be with making it sound natural. It really takes away from the immersion when a voice seems "hammed up".

Also, shout out to UncleSigmund for some brilliant harmonica magic.

Cheers,

Wow this is one of the most interesting cartoons I've seen in a while. The voice acting may not be at it's peak but granted you can tell there's a lot of effort put into this piece. Lots of fun characters and animation style. With that said there's a bit of everything in this fun movie and I think it's worth a thumbs up in my book!

Great animation, but I think it would have been better as a silent short.

The animation and gestural movement was superb, love frame-by-frame. Storyline is excellent as well, and your character designs are pretty good too. As many has stated, I also voice concern for the audio. Having sound effects (POW, BOOM, STOP) for all of those little movements would make this animation GOLDEN. It would fit perfectly. The voice acting is kind of good, but your audio is pretty balanced. Overall, 4.5/5 stars!!

Perfectly unique and graciously animated. 0.5 stars off for the sound and lack of music. Maybe ask user "chluaid" for suggestions? I look forward to additional plot and several sequels!
