Non-Canonical Joke Minute

It's the Non-Canonical Joke Minute!
Pepper tells Drink her troubles! Animation completed in 24 hours. Audio (voices, selection of music, and editing) was 2 days separately.

Note: "Non-canonical" in this case means that this is unconnected to the events that take place in Pink Lemonade proper. It's just a joke!

Note 2: About the accents -- the alien creature was Scottish, Pepper was Australian, and Drink was American. The accents represent the different dialects of the alien language that they're *really* speaking.

Front page! :-D Well, I hope that my next release will be more worthy of such an honour! Jokes like this are really hit or miss with the audience, as the reviews show. For anyone who doesn't find this sort of joke funny, perhaps you'll enjoy the PL short better, which is the next release in this series, in production (see the PL web site for details). http://pinklemonadeanime

Ironically enough, this was 6 days after I was born.

Cute and very creative. The design for the fat aliens and animation suck. But Pepper is just really amusing!

I am not familiar with this series. Oh, I thought it was some mainstream anime. Instead, it was just one joke. It doesn't matter, because it's funny. I can appreciate the great animation. Honestly, it looks gorgeous!

A pity it's so short. Well, it's still great. I'm glad people are into it. You use colors so well. I wish you'd made more of these cartoons with these characters.

I like the animation but subtitles would have been really nice. Especially towards the end

Oh MY GOD!...
Needed that to lighten the day's mood! Seriously, I'll have to think of something to improve so you can have a full 5-star rating...
...oh wait... You draw and animate well enough... I think I know what would work well... Please, google the following and get back with me with (any) questions...
"The Cremation of Sam McGee"
or if you'd rather : "The Shooting of Dan McGrew"

They're both poem / ballads from Robert W. Service, and I'd be happy if you returned with something you'd googled out of his whole life, frankly... He was a better than good storyteller, even if your "thing" isn't poetry. I'd be happy to hear it, even contribute, but like O-Henry, he was (at least occasionally) revered for his twist endings and for things you didn't expect to slip into the storyline.
Lots of people think he was only well liked for his stories of the Yukon and the Gold-rush days, but... He certainly had a flair. I think you have a natural knack for this kind of work, and you might find a real niche for it (if you just look to grab the thing and go with it)... Anyways, I'd be happy to get back with you (one way or other) and help out... Anyway I can.
(Might be largely fascinating, and fun to advert' as a voice actor)... lol

Humbly, just a suggestion...
