Rather than have you guys wait for Blockhead: The Game and have nothing to chew on erstwhile, I thought I'd make you this. To those of you who have no idea what's happening here, then I apologize in advance. Haha.

I love you.

[Running Time: 1 minute]
P.S. This is just a short, not a "real" Episode.


I'm saving the 10's for the game.

The mix of animation styles was a nice touch. The humor was good.

Of course, if they were from the future, they should be able to come back later, I think. The only thing I really know about temporal mechanics is that you shouldn't pay them by the hour.

Check out the Discworld novels, "Pyramids" and "Thief of Time" if you get stuck for ideas.

That's actually a fantastic idea. Time Squad has been my big, fat, time-travel parody sandwich, so I can always use more material. Even then, I'd still like to read that kinda thing recreationally.

And that is a keen observation...who knows exactly where [i.e. when] the time travelers retreated to?


you're making a game!?


blockhead is amazing

The-Swain responds:

That I am, with Newgrounds member Komix. He's quite the hard worker, too - no matter how tricky an idea I have for the game, he does it. And fast, too :D If the game takes a while to make, then it's gonna be my fault :)


I love Blockhead, Michael Swain is one of my favorite artists, I was waiting for a new Blockhead episode. I think that this is the winner of tomorrow. I am a flash artist too, but I'm not like you, Michael swain. If you want, you can see my movie, but it sucks, and the next episode will be better and if you will watch it please leave a review :)


p.s.: Blockhead forever!!!
p.p.s.: Obviously, I voted 5/5

The-Swain responds:

I promise I'll watch it, but I'm kind of bad at reviews. My last one hasn't been for a while :/


^^Good Points^^
I was really happy to see another Blockhead movie in the portal, since it has been a while since I've seen them. I'm glad to see that you really made this one much funnier than the past few episodes, which were starting to wane in comedy. I really liked the voice overs as always, and the animations were great. The drawings were very defined, and this was funny throughout. As always, excellent job.

^^Needs Improving^^
Well, I'm not sure I know what is going on, but whatever, I guess I don't visit the website enough to know.

The-Swain responds:

I was gonna recommend that people watch Time Squad first so that they know what's happening here, but a 30-minute film is not really an appropriate prologue for a 60-second short. :)

dude well done!

great! annother flash by you! i love it!

again a great episode of blockhead! thanks

Not quite an Episode, but Blockhead nonetheless :)
