The "One Ring" series returns in a retelling of the classic tale "The Hobbit." Done in a storybook narrative, the first Act has Bilbo and his dwarven companions starting on their journey to steal back their treasure form the vile dragon Smaug. But will they survive long enough? With the wizard Gandalf on their side, of course they will! And don't worry, Sauron and Wayne are in there as well for fans of the older "One Ring" movies.

The plan is to make this a 3 part series, and I'm fully prepared to see it finished. The original version was one long movie, but when I got about 12 minutes in I realized it was way to long. So I split it up. Thanks to Scott Johnson of Extra Life ( for doing the voice for Gandalf!

And on another note, earlier this year I started making comics on my site at Check it out!

enjoyed the jokes especially tom bombadil...could have had
a bit more of that Legendary Frog touch, but still quite enjoyable!
liked the small bit of wayne and sauron as well :]


Rated 4 / 5 stars


delightfully tacky
I give you three points and a duck for actually reading the books


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I hope the next are better

Not as good as some of your other work, and not as funny either. But i was still chuckling at some parts, so i don't know if that means i'm immature, or just easily amused...

I'd work more on the jokes, theres a bunch of material in the hobbit that is potentially funny.

Sigh =\

I hope your next one is actually worthy of having your name on it, LG. Turned it off a ways in. Bad animation and did sauron's voice change or did I really grow up? Because the delivery of the jokes is horrible, along with the below avera- nah, not below average, just annoying voice acting. Not saying the animation is bad cuz of tweening or whatever others have talked about, its bad because it honestly does look dated...and well, low quality compared to anything else I've seen you do. The artwork is fine, I think your style always comes through as being awesome! Just the animation really, really bugs me. If the jokes were awesome, the animation wouldn't matter and nor would it be a problem if the animation was mind-blowing with badly delivered jokes - A combo of subpar animation AND jokes bring it down =\

It's a great idea, it really is! It just needs a lot more work on it next time. As it is, 5/10, same as an F on a paper.

As for the people complaining about the excessive use of tweening, I can look past all that. Although I have to say I thought your WoW parody was visually a lot smoother than this one.

The problem is the humor. if you don't find it funny you are going to get bored incredably quickly, by the scene with the trolls I was already tempted to close the window. It's not funny, it really isn't, some people are going to have the humor which suits it but it's almost as if it's aimed at kids. There are not enough jokes, or rather, I think half of them go past un-noticed because they're not executed well at all.
I would suggest mixing in other kinds of humor, or at least spending more time on each individual joke to actually take effect.
Thanks for making it though.
