Anyhow, Shoo Fly is a work of "Mickey Mousing" (Google the term, my friends) to the One Piece OST track "Ichijya Tetai" ("One Hour Evacuation"). It follows a woman I call Nelly as she deals with an unwelcome fly. And that's about it. There's not much of a story to summarize.

It's been nearly two years since my last submission to Newgrounds, and what do I have to show for it? One minute of animation. This is more like 3 collective weeks worth of work, so don't get overexcited. The other hundred weeks or so were spent on irrelevant Flash and slacking in general.

Shoo Fly has the most intense frame by frame animation I've ever made, and as a result, I'm very tired of drawing Nelly. Tired of drawing, period. This experience has reinforced my decision to not pursue animation as a profession (maybe character design is more to my liking...). My mouse's left-click button is now a different color from the right-click button. EDIT: I'm sorry to have confused and dismayed some of you - I'm still going to animate stuff. Just not for a living.

Anyhow, you may notice there's a newer trackbar. It's a vast improvement over the one I designed for FFA+ - heavily inspired by Media Player Classic's interface. And by "heavily inspired," I mean "completely ripped off from." The thing will tell you how many seconds have loaded, so feel free to start watching whenever. You can also step through the animation frame by frame, speed through it at any rate (even backwards), and adjust the volume. Clicking the screen or pressing spacebar will toggle play/pause. The rest should be self explanatory.

To all the Reviewers out there:
I think that its sad that 90% of you bastards who watch this don't realise what its actually is. To you this is just another cartoon that you see everyday that has "smooth animation" and "pretty characters and "it was funny" or worse yet "OMG You made FFA+!!!1" You are missing the fucking point! The entire cartoon was entirely in sync with the classical music. Do you have any idea how rare and incredible that is? No you don't. You are a bunch of ignorant bastards who sit at home with your thumb up your butt complaining about its "shortness" or "I don't like Anime". For the love of God don't comment at all of a work of art if you are too ignorant to understand what it really is.

To the Flash Artist:
Magnifcent work. You truely created a real Micky Mousing Cartoon. I for one understand how much effort it takes to not only create Flash cartoons and also realise how much more effort you've put into this movie compared to any of those I've seen before. I salute thee good sir!
