The Cuttlefish that Could

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Hi all, I hope you all enjoy this Flash film. It's about a Cuttlefish named Cuddly that wants to fly... seriously...

...it's a metaphor, find the meaning. (or find my comment in the reviews)

Enjoy the dramatic adventure...

EDIT - Unfortunately, the frame rate is down. The animation is supposed to run at 20 fps however in the browser it seems to be running at 16. This isn't good because the shots are meant to be in sync with the music. If you have Flash Player 7 installed then simply find cuttlecould.swf in your temporary internet files folder, copy it, paste it to another folder and open it. It will run beautifully. If someone can help me fix this problem with the browser I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

Huh. Got recommended this old piece at random and thought "hey why not let's see what it's about."

The animation is very good for 2004.

Other notes:
Someone said you stole the storyline from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and I have to say that's bullshit. The final arc where Rudolph gets out of his situation is inverse to what happened here. Rudolph had circumstance where someone needs assistance and they required his help. This character had the circumstance where someone else had something he wants, and he outright stole it from them. The end results are dramatically different.


ok...u totally stole the story line from rudolf. and how all the others used to laugh and call him names. i got kind of bored watching so work on better stories. but the graphics snapped so keep that up.


great graphics the best (and only) 3-D cartoon I've seen


that was really good... i was really surprised. the main fish thing was really cute and all the music was really good and amazing quality. was the victory theme the one from iron chef? i think it is..lol. anyway, love to see more in the future.


It really was cute though. Anyway I liked the music a lot. Although the music was pulled a little to soon. Other then that gripe It was one of my faves.
