Tales from the Toy Chest Beta #2: Dresser Discord

The toys engage in a frantic free-for all for control of the dresser...sort of...

If you want something better, please check out the regular series, which will soon be updated.

This marks the beginning of an era. From now on, Aaraboga will be doing all the stop-motion animation whilst I handle all the technical aspects. Also, this is the last movie where the framerate of the stop-motion animation is 10fps. We will be going to 12fps with the next full short. Until then, enjoy!

Constructove critisim is always appreciated, but don't just tell us the movie stinks and not tell us why.

Frame Size=480x319

This movie was shot and constructed in 4 hours.


Nice Direction to take this

Having the action take advantage of the single camera angle instead of relying on multiple directions was a smart move considering all the animation that had to go into it in the first place. Plus, It reminded me of a British chase scene.

Glad you liked it! Aaraboga found that single-angle shots are indeed best for high-mayhem scenes. Thanks for the review! The next short is due to be out within a matter of days!

Pure awesome randomness!

This was really, really great. Awesome work! Very random and great music. Well animated, very smooth. A well done movie. I look forward to your next one!

Thanks for checking it out! Glad you enjoyed the movie and thanks for the review! Hopefully, the next movie will be done within the next few days.

Pretty darn good.

I was happy to finally see some good stop-motion animation on Newgrounds. The music choice was pretty good and the story reminded me of old Tom and Jerry cartoons or the chase scenes in Scooby-Doo.

Keep up the good work!

Glad you enjoyed the movie! Now that you mention it, this does reemind me of some of those old, whacky cartoons. There's a full epiosde coming up in a few days, so I bet you'll like that one too. Thanks for the review!


Wow! This was really good stop-motion animation! I especially like the music clip you chose for it. Very circus-y and it fit. ^_^ I also enjoyed batman popping out of the tin at the end.

Anyway, this was excellent. I'd like to see more of your animation style in the portal. =)

Well, there is more TftTC on the way, just a day or two away, actually. Thank you very much for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed the movie!


Stop motion is always fun to watch. The music went well with this one. I enjoyed it. Good job.

Glad you liked it! Aaraboga choose the music at the last moment since we couldn't find anything else suitable at the time. Thanks for the review!
