Those of you who see this and are like, da hell thats not how pico went. Well, imagine this story as the true happenings, beneath the cover up of Casandra being an alien thing, what really happened. Or not, u can just not believe it. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

Low Quality is suggested...

This would be my Pico Day submission entitled, A Pico Thing. It's a little bit more than 5 minutes long and 5,000 frames(a lot of it is frame by frame). I gotta thank newgrounds for helping me get to where I am today. If this site didn’t exist, I would be somewhere very far away doing something very different.( maybe a pirate in the Caribbean).

It all started around March 15th, the week before my spring break. I read one of Tom's front page posts and it mentioned Pico Day, and I just kind of read it over, not thinking I would actually make a cartoon. That night I thought about it. I was still unsure whether to make one or not. So I went and played the Pico game the next day, and it struck me, Pico vs The Scientist Nerd, so I began to storyboard that idea. I figured it would be done, so I put a little more spin on the idea...

So I finished the storyboard, and during my spring break started to animate it. I put in lots of references to other stuff. One of the more obvious ones is Alien Hominid.

So as I worked on the cartoon relentlessly, college would occasionally take up all my time( or hanging out with people, I do that too) and I went for some time without touching the cartoon. So it only about a month of work, but it still took a shitload of work, and I am definitely proud of the final product.

Yeah, anybody gonna read this far down? Sorry about the music, I didn’t really have much time to make a full out soundtrack to the movie on my own, and just didn’t look through the audio portal. Sorry the size and lack of an entertaining loading page.


I thought casandra was a girl!

Seriosly i thought she was a girl

She is, but she is also a guy(as seen in the final battle). When i made this i was only thinking of the 'final battle Casandra form' and not the orignal unaltered Casandra. My mistake. The proper changes in the prologue have been made.


very nice man. sorry bout the low interactivity and humor grade, but only interactivity was the start and replay buttons and it was more actiony than funny(cept for the "protection" part lol".nice movie overall with great graphics, style, sound fx(u really made some with your mouth?, and VIOLENCE!!!!!!

some advice

if you make a sequel if he presses the Blammer button it like surrounds him with mechaincal armor and turns Him into the P-Bot of the portal.

thats not a bad idea at all! Thanks for the advice and fo the 10!


You have some great skills. Nice graphics, animation and (especially) plot. It was great, the only flaw was the premature ending of the song at the end. Other than that, wonderful...

The music was amazing :P

while the flash was very good, there were some... abnormalities in your animating, like where pico get hit up into the ceiling/wall and he seems to get crushed. I wouldn't count that against you though... otherwise I would of been a pretty up tight bastard.
