With the help of flash artist Roger Weide, I want to acknowledge all the support I received from some of the people on newgrounds to not give up on my dream to think an idea for a flash movie which I wasn't able to accompolish when I was litte. I wanted this movie to teach a lesson of becoming yourself and not try to be someone else due to what other people say about you. I gave Tails the perfect example of a character who always has the tendency to doing everything that his role model sonic does and tails needs to learn to just be himself.

Awesome, magical, epic, killer and downright cool!

There hasn't been a review here for a couple years. I doubt you're gonna read this iflfan, but I hope you do! This is a really old flash animation and it's astounding that it dates back to 2004! I wonder why I didn't stumble upon this back then... I was gradually getting back into Sonic and I realized Tails was my favorite character.

I discovered around June or July 2010. It was during a really tough period in my life and this flash animation really really cheered me up. Tails is my favorite character of all-time and to me he is the cutest character of all-time. This is definitely the best flash animation about Tails. The way he is drawn may not be pretty, but it's still good and humorous! The story is extremely random and I know there's a message in this flash.

I thought it was interesting to see Tails playing basketball. I would have gotten a real kick out of this flash animation if it was made in 1994 and I watched it in 1994. I was into basketball back then and I actually played it. Basketball was a bit of an obsession of mine for a little while. I totally get the premise of this. Tails sees a famous basketball star, views him like he's Sonic, but then he finds out that Grant isn't all what Tails thinks of him. He challenges him and Tails wins. However, I know that he wouldn't be like that with Sonic, he loves Sonic a lot. When I watched this for the first time, I thought that Grant was going to win.

I laugh at the montage part so much. It's so cheesy and great. I laughed out loud the first time I saw that picture of Brian Grant with his mouth open. It's extremely hilarious, the expression on his face is priceless in that photo! It's amazing that you chose Brian Grant, it's really too bad that he now has Parkinson's Disease. Yeah, I had to Google him and find out more about him. He's a player that I didn't know since my love for basketball was dying when he came to the NBA.

I really like the cameos in there. There could have been a Weekenders character thrown in there. It would make the flash movie totally complete. However, it wouldn't have been necessary. I have one word to describe the voice acting... amateur. However, that doesn't mean it's bad. Norb's voice sounds like it's done by a really young girl, however it works out since this is a random flash. It sounds like her voice was recorded from a telephone.

Music is put to great use in this flash. The music that's being played during the Steven Spielberg scene. That music during Tails' dream is extremely spot on. Amazingly, all of the music fits. I noticed you used some rap/hip-hop songs that bring back some fuzzy memories. There was a time where I was into rap/hip-hop too.

This flash animation deserves a lot of praise. It is rare to come across an amazing flash movie with Tails as the star. Tails' chance for stardom is by far the best one. I have quite a few ideas for Tails flash movies, however I can't choose one. I wish I had the ability to create stuff through flash animation. It's just not gonna happen since I would not have the required patience to do such a thing.

This is an extremely fantastic, fabulous, electrifying and extremely awesome flash movie. It's incredible that a flash movie like this has impacted me. This may not be a flash movie that will be on top in the flash portal, but it's great to know that it exists and people are watching it. Who knows, there may be people out there just discovering this for the first time and they really enjoy it. They may be afraid to write a review about it or even give it a vote. It's too bad that this is an obscure flash animation on Newgrounds. It really deserves a lot of praise, like I said in the previous paragraph.

In conclusion, I know this is a really epic review. It totally deserves one! I hope some other free-thinker and open-minded person will enjoy this flash movie. I'm sure they're out there, they just haven't discovered this yet. This doesn't need a sequel at all. This is seriously a magical work of flash animation that will go on, dude.
