Great Depression cartoon

Author Comments

This is my first complete flash film; a political cartoon on the Great Depression. It was originally a history project, but I decided to put it on Newgrounds anyway. Also, this is NOT in any way meant to make fun of presidents, it's just a funny history cartoon. Also, all the music is from Nintendo: Golden Sun, Metroid, Mario, and SSBM. Also, the frame rate is supposed to be 30, and from now on I'm going to make that 24 in the rest of my submissions.

If you're going to rate it, rate it on QUALITY rather than CONTENT.

not bad

it was an alright animation. a little bit random overall and i didn't see much of a reference to the great depression, but it was still alright to check out.


This doesn't accurately depict The Great Depression, more so this depicts the Stock Market Crash of Black Tuesday in 1929, there were several global factors that led to the Great Depression, this is just one of the events.

Nice effort though...

Yea, you got a point there. I think I will have to rename it.

Very good.

Don't know what the last reviewer was on about, but compared to the never ending stream of crap that comes through here this is gold!
Graphics: They were good, especially for a first try, the animation was smooth and had good movement...much much better graphics than mostof the new stuff here (Looks at the s**i Kitty Krew submit) Yeah, these graphics are gold.
Style: It's good to see some substance in a flash, unlikie some other flashes which jsut try to annoy people (spits in general direction of Kitty Krew), nice blend of history and flash.
Sound: Good choice for what you wanted.
Violence: Not much, not much needed though.
Interactivity: It is a movie, although you did have a scene select.
Humour: I smirked, but didn't laugh, don't think you were going for too much humour though seeing as it was a school project.
Over all, if tghis doesn't get saved I will kill Kitty Krew... I will probably kill them anyway. Good job on a good flash! (Mind the political undertones though, not aware of American politics but this could be seen as republican/democrat propoganda seeing as how FDR was portrayed as a saint.)


Soz its not dat great try nd make it about sum thing people will enjoy but keep trying.

Nice J.O.B Ken.

"The Great Depression",good times. My grandparents became obscenely wealthy through it's mechanisms;many starved to death. A literal symbol of Wave American Impearlism. Capitilistic perpertrators. You studied the "Great Depression",right? See how it was carefully engineered(the environmental tragedy was a vector for coincedential humanistic tragedy?) Think further and dig far deeper than your simple school textbook examines,uncover the reality behind the smplicity. Anyhorse,you earned a five for posterity and inclusion. The world is so much more than it seems.
