One Ring to Rule ThemAll3

The third installment of the “One Ring” series is a little different than the others. First off you may notice the animation looks diffrent. That's because it was animated by my buddy Chris Boe, who also helps out with some of the little movies on my site.

Second is it’s not based off Lord of the Rings… almost at all. I decided to do something original with those characters. Although there's a lot of LotR jokes, so it’s just the storyline that's different.

In this episode, Wayne goes on a hot date with the lovely Red Haired Elf Chick. Will the green guy get lucky, or she realize he’s a smelly goblin? Meanwhile Sauron gets a visit from a old roommate, the Dark Lord Melkor…his former master. How will the night end for both of them? There's also some extra stuff, as well as a few easter eggs! (one is in the movie, but it goes by kinda fast)

Chris' Comments: I'd like to thank my greatest love, Coffee. Without your loving support, I would've never pulled through.

the good old days

XD not realy anything to do with the real story, but that leaves room for new ones!!! bring the ring back!!!


Man 8 years later and this is still one of the funniest things I've ever seen on the internet. I miss the days of easter eggs and funny audio clips after the credits. Watching this and seeing that it still made me laugh really restored my faith in humanity, err at least my faith in the internet. I think Joseph Blanchette here was, and probably still is one of the best flash animators out there, and I'd really love to see a continuation of this series. Or maybe just a throwback to it, in a new animation!

I remember this!

I think this was one of the first submissions I saw here that was based on something new that a creator had made. It's weird to think you haven't done that many things since then. I can't help but think of the fake trailers. They of course, are in no way included in this cartoon as the second episode showed. It's kind of sad you didn't make this into a full fledged series. You have all the great animation and voicework you need.

Now that I think about it, none of the "One Ring To Rule Them All" entries are not related to each other. I think the most memorable part was when Melkor thought Sauron was gay. Sauron gets so little screen time in the actual series, it's fun to make fun of him. Yeah, I knew Sam and/or Frodo was going to appear in this. In case anyone's wondering, there's no easter eggs in the credits.
