What would happen if the ugly duckling never grew into a swan? A sad tale that would be.

Thanks Newgrounds for frontpage, and thanks to the honest reviewers who gave it a chance.


Urm... Yeah...

What the hell was that? the overall mark I gave yyou was based on the animation and the execution of it all, but what the hell?

For one thing... What ugly duck? Is this a metaphor for the guy? I Think Yes.
For Two things... Oh actually I'm starting to think about it now... Ah yes I see what you've done here... oooooooooooooh! It all makes sence now... Exept one thing... Actually two things

1) Why did that baby never blink?
2) Why did 'The Ugly Duck' put the baby in the toilet and sit on him while crying?

And Now I'm going to explain the story for those who don't understand.

Guy gets beaten as child and never gets over it therefore the metaphoricalo 'ugly duck'
Ugly duck see's a guy in the park beating a baby so kills him and takes the baby so that the baby can become a swan
Then ugly duck takes Baby to the public toilets in park, puts him in a toilet and sits on the toilet sobbing into his hands. Possibly contemplating suicide or something.

Well the animation was fucking awesome and the sounds are very well selected, but I'm not sure I actually understood all that was happening it's a little strange but really enjoyable though.


This was the weirdest and most disturbing this I have ever seen in my entire life. I dont even undrstand it..... the guy gets pissed for seeing a child getting abused then he saves the baby. Ya ok I understand that.... BUT WHAT THE HELL! He goes off and kills it! Weird.

This is onr of the best videos I've EVER seen!

Everything about this Flash screams OSCAR!! The Animation and music flow together like a river drowning out the pain and reality of life. I love this video and think that it should be at #1 right now. I wish there were more like this one!
Please let the Artists know how you feel about it, Good or Bad, its pushing the boundries of what we know as Flash!

Woah okay...

That waws creepy. But strangely entertaining. DOUBLE YEW TEE EFF MAET?
