Blockhead, Episode 8: Ghostmas

Blockhead celebrates Halloween again. Uh oh!

Running Time: 7 minutes. So take a seat.

Looks like I made it in time for Halloween after all. Whew! Well, Merry Ghostmas everyone, and have fun tonight! OR ELSE!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


One of the bigger problems I've had with the series was that the graphics were C average. This episode has really showed off some nice looking visuals. The lighting, the detail to backdrops, the characters, all much more greatly improved. Also, very funny. Probably the best Halloween toon this year, and probably my favorite episode of the series.

yay, blockhead is back!

I loved the backgrounds. I adore the hearts on the walls, very cute. I loved the song, it's still stuck in my head! Good job on your new episode!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


That was terrific! I couldn't stop laughing. Blockhead really outdone himself this time. Keep up the good work, you are one of the top artists on this site and your getting better and better with each flash movie you make!

The-Swain responds:

Well, I think I would be worried if I was getting worse :D

But I did decide to put a little more work into how I was organizing my backgrounds, so I am glad it paid off!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This series never dissapoints

Whenever an idiot breaks into song in a cartoon, it's really hit or miss. This was pretty damn good. I always love the conversations between Blockhead and the Conscience and I was laughing most of the way through. Nice touch with the alien joke at the very end. Ten out of ten and my continuing devotion to this series.

The-Swain responds:

The biggest problem I had with writing the song was that I had to keep Blockhead from sounding too intelligent. It's not just about basing it on an inane concept, but using a limited vocabulary for a character that can "barely form a coherent sentence". I can't rhyme for crap, so this was especially difficult!

And I'm thankful for your undying loyalty :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Disturbing, yet hilarious

And a Merry Ghostmas to you as well, Michael!

This is a great animation, I never knew you had such a good singing voice. I'm almost tempted to go out and throw pumpkins at people's houses / cars / property myself, but since it's getting late, I won't bother... Next year, however...

The animation is awesome (I personally loved the death of the conscience again) and the concept is completely off the wall and once again, I'm running out of superlatives to describe how good this series really is.

I love the way that he gets around problems with life by simply being too dense to grasp the concept - something I occasionally wish I had

The one problem with this episode must be that by the sound of it, you have merged Halowe'en and Xmas, so does this leave us bereft of a Blockhead Xmas bonanza?

The-Swain responds:

I am pretty certain that Blockhead will be back for Christmas, and I've got a decent direction to go with the episode if he does. I just hope that when I read this review in January, I can look back and see that I was right!

The Conscience "death" was just a little flavor I threw in there for the heck of it; it didn't seem forced this time because I wasn't using it to resolve a problem. At least that's how I see it.

Also, I don't know about my singing voice, but I'll tell Blockhead you thought his was swell :D Though it's much easier to sing to a song you've written yourself, since I had my own vocals in mind when I wrote the sucker.
