This is my longest animation yet! The characters are frame by frame so it took me a while to do as well. I hope you enjoy!

*UPDATE* Thanks very much to everyone! I really didn't think it would be this well received!

About alternative endings - I had quite a few ideas for endings. Maybe I should have made it so there was a choice! Anyway, thanks for your support!

makes you think how your friends will be to you in a similar situation

Was just waiting for the purple guy to get up in the end there, and get out victorious...

Oh well, it's another melancholy ending nicely done! Unexpected twists, and sad how all that starts so great and full of friendship derails to a senseless bout of violence like this, one after the other dying along the way... it's a sad path, but so creatively portrayed.


This was an awesome stick cartoon. The best part was the very end. You just had no idea that would happen. I guess it's just quite dreary in everything it does. The music was fairly good too. I was confused by how there was no blood at first.

Then I got it! I don't know what the purpose of the hypens was. This was quite well paced for its length. With no dialogue, I guess you could call it a music video! It was really creative.

Haha! Amazing! Hilarious! And a bit romantic with Lady Purple and Gentleman Black Stickman. More!!

my god it's been a few years.
i came back here after reviewing my old account from 2003, and this animation still holds well even after all this time.

a lot of people can't find a great deal to like when it comes to Stick Animations, but without them Flash would still probably be a pipe dream. for a lot of reasons.

ANIMATION - very well animated. moving numerous figures in the old frame by frame is very time consuming. but this animator does it with some serious pride.
SOUND - the melancholy tune is appropriate for the setting, but honestly because i watched the original first, i seriously miss the old songs. (part of the reason i watched American Beauty was soully for Free To Go.
HUMOR - the ending speaks for itself. Felix kills stick characters. sometimes contextually.

i love this old movie. it reminds me of the good times i used to spend on here. and makes me think that the best on NG is STILL to come.
