Whale Retarditis... serious business D:
I felt badly for Melinda too... man you're good with these freaks, and a nicely executed pun on Jerry, I feel the same way. The real tear jerker for me on this one was where Melinda is being tossed around to dance on stage like a puppet. I don't know why, but you have this knack of making me feel bad for these freaks. I'd adopt one, but... well i'll just give you 20 dollars, to keep em alive a bit longer :D!
Good for Melvin too, good luck wherever he's going! *nowhere good apparently?*
Keep up the good fight, well animated.
