Thanks for the front page!

Thanks for the reviews, I'll try and respond to them all.

This is a really light hearted cartoon.
The style and humour that I was going for is like the Merry Melodies cartoons like Road Runner.

This is the longest that I have worked on a cartoon, it took me a month, but it was worth it not to rush it.

The music is Cab Calloway - the Scat Song

I'm sorry, but I found this to be pretty dumb. It was just a guy robbing a place. I mean, I guess the animation wasn't that bad. I like how you used an old timey mood for this. Your name reminds me of Matt Groening. You don't seem to be that talented, though.

The music was pretty nice. It was just too short. The intro was also too long. I might have missed something important in this. You need to have more of a distinct story in this.

Perfection In Flash Form.

Wow that was excellent, you really captured the style that you were aiming for, if my flash were anything like this than I would be overjoyed. I hope that you make more in this style because this is deffinately where your talent lies. Short and snappy and very sweet. Well done man.

Matt-G responds:

Thanks! I have been continuing in the sort of retro style because that's where the best inspiration comes from.

Pretty sweet

It was a nice short cartoon that didnt go on and on and on ruining itself in the process. I really enjoyed the style of "50's television" and to see something different on newgrounds for once. The only problem is that when i read the reviews, i noticed that you know jackshit about taking constructive critisism....

here's a lil something about that....

when someone gives you critisism, they are doing it to see better cartoons and to give you advice. Sure, you can barrage the noobs with your fucking verbal abuse but try keeping it to just the rant reviews. If someone's giving you advice on how to improve then take it.

I Thought It Was Quite Good - And Was Thrilled (And A Little Tingly) Over The Use Of Cab Calloway! I Think That Made It EXTRA Special! I Love It!
