Hello world, I'm back with yet another little short toon. This one is based on audio I borrowed (ie. outright stole) from Navigatrs 'Gaming in the Clinton years' videos.

If you don't know what 'Gaming in the Clinton years' is, it's a set of review and strategy clips for video games that were made during the Clinton administration. They're hosted by a guy who I'm pretty sure doesn't know a thing about video games or hosting a video game review show. The videos themselves can get ridiculous even when they're in context, so I thought I'd take a collection of the best non-sequiters out of context and see if I can come up with a coherent review for a single game. This is the result.

So have a watch. Mind the crap artstyle, those who know my previous work know I'm capable of doing better.

Donkey Kong in Chrono Trigger. That's pretty funny.

I should have challenged viewers to name all the games reviewed in that clip. Some are easier to pick-out than others.

The animation wasn't the greatest, but it made me laugh.

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

I'm the first to admit that I'm not an artist and that I'm cutting corners with the Slim Bits series. I'm just glad it made you laugh.

Pretty funny ^^

I thought this was actually quite funny to be honest. I actually noticed some of the games (Mickey, Yoshi's Island), but the graphics, while not that important in certain things (I think) were not that great. I mean, better than I could do, but noticeably not good. I think it kind of added to the humor, but it also makes it a little ackward to look at. The sound was decent, but it would have been better if you could have gotten the background music out of certain clips. I haven't looked at any of your other cartoons yet, but I plan to. Keep up the good work ^^

Uptown-SlimJim responds:

Thanks. The Slim Bits series is a big departure from what I've normally done. I'm more of a dialogue/story kind of guy, so my typical art style is clearner and more detailed than it is here. What I do with this series is allow myself to cut corners and go wild because they're meant to be shorts rather than full-fledged shows. That's my excuse for the crummy art.

Also there wasn't much I could have done with the audio. It was just a straight recording off my soundcard. Can't be helped.
