**if you could be so kind to add to the stickmen collection I would really appreciate it**

This animation was inspired by a friend of mine whom i was teaching how to animate, he sent me a small cartoon about a guy falling out of a balloon. it wasn't that good so I remade it for him and that was when i had the idea of making this series of short toons.
its about one and a half minutes long and has 4 mishaps in it including balloon mishap, bus mishap, trampoline mishap and dentist mishap. enjoy and vote fairly.
and the music is fur elise by beethoven i think it goes pretty well with the animation.

Nice Idea

That was pretty funny! My favourite one was the trampoline, nice idea with the rock bouncing back up! The music did get a little annoying at times, and i felt it may have been a little slow moving. But the gratuitous blood made up for it no problem. Perhaps improvements could include better artwork? With people instead of sticks perhaps, and make some more stories!


Very clever idea! Congrats to your friend for thinking of this. Most stick animations aren't very good at all, but this one is. And the fact that this is your first flash submission makes it even better! Way to go. ^.^

Graphics are decent, even though you used stick figures. The humor was somewhat original, and very creative. Congratulations on that.

The lack of sound and voice acting are a few downsides to this, so yeah...

Great work! I am looking forward to your next submissions.

it started off as a sort of example of decent animation to show my friend as his was the typical noobish stickmen animation the kind with no elbow or knee joints and the arms coming out the stomach but if it wasn't for him this would have never been made. As for voice acting I don't do it much mainly since I dont have a microphone...

Not bad for a first flash

~The Pros~

Well, this wasn't that bad, I guess. I actually kind of liked it. It was a simple idea that was done very well. The graphics were pretty decent. I especially liked how you did the movement of the stick figures. It was pretty well done. The backgrounds too were done very well, some of them being pretty interactive with the scene. The backgrounds music, Beethoven I think, was really fitting with the flash. There was a lot of gore in this flash as well, and I liked how there was actually blood that moved, not just blood that appeared out of no where and just stayed as a pool of redness. This flash was pretty funny as well. Sure the ideas were kind of simple, but I still laughed.

~The Cons~

Honestley, I didn't really like the stick figures. I think that using a full bodied person would be a lot better. Also, perhaps voice acting would make the flash better. Other than that, good job.

Overall, a pretty decent, comical flash that I enjoyed to watch. Make more! ~Review Request Club~

4 out of 5

yeah it would have been better as full bodied people but to be honest I really lack the artistic talent to make it look good, thanks for the good review


Ah, mishaps... Dentist mishaps was the best one.

Pretty damn good

Even though it's just stick men, I still think it's very funny!
I really liked the Dentist mishap
do more!
