Fred's Birthday Surprise

Author Comments

I can usually manage to spend at least 95% of my time having fun.

Thanks for so many positive reviews! This movie was originally created for submission to the TGSNT festival in San Francisco. It didn't win but it was a finalist. Since the original was designed for DVD, a lot of quality had to be sacrificed to make the file small enough for Newgrounds.

OF COURSE ITS AN OLD JOKE! Does that mean, as some reviewers suggest, that an old idea shouldn't be explored for new ways to express it? That would rule out a hell of a lot of Hollywood sequels.

Anyway, its really amazing to me how differently various people react to the same joke, some finding it hilarious and others either not getting it at all, or not seeing any humor.


hehe !

nice one !

i love fred, he's a brilliant old grave dodger, i love the way he says "its ma birthday"

Good job

That was some great animation! You have very good artistic abilties, I think you should create a flash shooter or game some time, it would be very cool!
I remembered the joke like 5 minutes after, lol!

Fricken sweet' a little creepy

Pretty funny, but that last part was a little creepy!

hey.... wait a minute

you got that joke from cheech and chong didn't you lol... but still a classic joke!

I liked that

It put a smile on my face and has put me in a good mood, thanks. The graphics were cool and so were the jokes.
"My writing was too legible" that is so true.
