Fantoons is a series of comic strips and cartoons, created by David Calcano http://fantoons.tv
If features a crazy fan of rock bands who most of the time dies while trying to get an autograph. Mr Calcano approached me to make this episode about Mr Big, and I really loved the cartooniness of the project, so I gave it my best, contributing not only with the animation and backgrounds, but also to a good part of the script.

The members of Mr Big themselves loved the piece and they used it to open their recent japan tour

It's 3:35 minutes of raw cartoon, and it took me around 5 months to animate.

Here's the youtube link too

Amazing! Classic! The guy even reminds me a little bit of Rayman! I was really proud of him when he sacrificed his hair for one of the band members! Mr. Big is actually an old band! I felt bad for the guy when he died ;(. Awesome animation! (P.S. I once watched this when I didn't have an account!)

Of course..it hardly even needs a mention...the animation and use of space and movement in the frame is impeccable, just all around very professional looking. Really brought me back to the simpler times of the old cartoons which I miss.
-That being said, (and this might be just nitpicky) it got way too crazy, and the screaming got annoying. You know the sensation of when you're head-banging too much, and then your head starts feeling like paper? Well that's how I felt at the 1:30 minute mark...and there was still 2 more minutes left to watch. I get that it was based on a comic strip, but the story was really uninteresting. I just got the feeling that nothing any character ever did had much purpose, except to progress to the next frame. Plus, I think for being a comedy, the director missed his mark. This was far too crass and graphic to be funny. I love the Ren and Stimpy style which this seems to emulate, but this doesn't leave much impact, even with all the things going with in. Apart from being impressed with the animation, I was just exhausted by the end of it all. Obviously I'm in the minority though, seeing as everyone else is loving this cartoon, so good job on that!
