EDIT: To all billion of you upset about the volume of the character "voices" compared to the actual song, send your complaints to the original creator of the song. I simply animated to the MP3 I had, and couldn't alter it in any way. There's nothing I could've done to change it, sorry.

This was a little idea I came up with practically on a whim last Sunday. I finished the whole thing in a little under a week, and I think it turned out pretty well. Back in 2004, a dude by the name of Martin Hagwell, also known as "Märta" made a song out of the BGM from the "Forest Maze" level from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. Just recently, he remixed the song he created into a full-fledged professional sounding song, titled "Rawest Forest". After finding the song by chance last weekend thanks to a YouTube video, I took a listen, and got the idea for this movie. Mario RPG is one of my absolute favorite games of ALL time, and I know it inside and out. Those who know the game as well as I do will catch all of the references scattered throughout the animation. I also used this as a test to try out some new little tricks with animation. The good majority of the movie is frame-by-frame, and yes, I know the drawings're a little crappy (I don't have a tabley, unfortunately), but I enjoyed working on it throughout my last full week of High School (YAY), and it doubled as the final for my animation class, so that's even better! Anyway, hope you enjoy it for what it is. I certainly had a ball.


Very cool

not a bad animation, and I loved the song. Couldn't really hear the voices all that well, but not bad none the less. Loved the game, and never beat it, never went looking for the cheats either


very catchy, and i loved the game.

Is actually really bad...

At first listen, this seems awesome-- very catchy... but when you think about it, the lyrics are REALLY REALLY abysmal. "Many of which drive some peeps insane" should never ever have been written down without some sort of punishment. I understand that you didn't make the song, just the cartoon to go with it, which is pretty good. It's sloppy, but I think that's what you were going for. I'm judging the flash as a whole, though, song and all.

4/10. Catchy, but sucks.

Good work on the video though.

Pretty good,

The drawings I didnt mind. But the sound was too quiet. Just a tip,

People find this review helpful!
