Philosophy and Botany collide in ways only the crew at 'This Is Where The Magic Happens Productions' can give it. And once it's given, it can't be given back. We at TIWTMHP have been working on this specific cartoon for near a decade, perfecting the animation and solidifying the script. See this soon-to-be legendary first episode of the socially aware and philosophically taut series called Veloric Joules.

This episode deals with Junior losing the science fair to his friend Amadeus, so he cooks up a crazy scheme to get him back. But soon Junior learns that friendship might be more valuble than winning.

I saw intelligent symbolism on determinism and fatalism philosophy.
You definitely seem to be a promising flash editor!
I can't wait for your next post!!!!

Dbmwjo responds:

Yes, it's nice to see you noticed the deeper meanings. Our writers are all full-time majors in therotical philosophy and metaphysics who have written many published term papers (one of which earned them a nobel prize). So they like to incorporate that.

More are on their way that include more philosophy.

Its got a lot of good humor,graphics lacking

At first I thought this was another lame attempt at a good flash but then I saw the funny humor you put into this and found it pretty entertaining. The graphics of course weren't very good at all but however the movement of the guys head to show that he is talking is cheap yet very funny to watch. The voices were a little soft I had to turn the volume up to hear it but the overall quality of the sound was good. Basically you did reasonbly well.

Dbmwjo responds:

Yeah we had to use shortcuts for the graphics. Most of our budget was blown on the intro because our financing intern was some yahoo who thought we were dealing in Euros. Thus, we only had about 5 thousand dollars out of our 35 million to actually work with.

Glad you thought it was funny though.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

out of the box

simple, pleasure. a bit repetitive on the humor, but thats what comedy is coming to now a days.

Dbmwjo responds:

The show's highly allegorical on life and so all its flaws are intentional to reflect the flaws of real life.

But I'm glad you liked it.

... not funny

You know, the worst thing is, you see all the credits before hand, shear the music, and the the opening video and get conned into believing that this is actually going to be something good!

Dbmwjo responds:

Hey, we had a starting budget of 35 million dollars given to us by the United Nations council. We ended up blowing the majority of it on getting the first few seconds animated (everything is painstakingly done by our hundreds of animators frame-by-frame at 500 fps, that's faster than the human eye can even comprehed). In the end we ended up only having about 5 thousand bucks left for the rest. If you have a problem, take it up to finances alright?
