I know this animation seems kind of simple, but the large file size is because it's long (sorry for the wait). I've left the extras and other features until the end of the movie. I hope it's better than the first movie I made. If you like this, I've got a sequel lined up, as soon as I can figure out how to get that tesseract to stop crashing Flash.

NOTE: The original file was 10.3 MB, which is only a little over 10MB, so to make it fit under the file size limit, I've reduced the audio quality from 24kbps to 16kbps. If you like this flash, then I may raise it back to 24kbps, if the staff would allow me to bypass the 10MB limit.

EDIT: Feature already. Thanks guys, it was much better than I expected.

EDIT: Scene selection added to the beginning, and most of the sound effects are now quieter.

If people are finding the movie too slow, it may be because your computer specs suck, or it simply runs better on flash player. Just download the .SWF and open it with flash player on your computer, and it should run faster.

A truly wonderful and whimsical animation. It reminded me of a french book called Le petit prince. Were it an animated flash movie, I imagine it would resemble this quite a bit. I also liked the art style you chose. I eagerly await the sequel.

I was really impressed by your cartoon, it was incredible. I learned a lot from this too, but I just had one didn't include any pause controls. (and the right click pause doesn't work on this one.)

But I digress, you did great!

Great movie, it was a lot longer than i thought it would be, but very cute and creative. Who knew there were so many uses for a paper octahedron? ...well, if youre tiny I guess xD

That was REALLY long! I loved the non-violent and friendly story in this flash. Even though there were a lot of reused animations I think each animation was put together very well. I think there was one mistake though during the scene with the man who needed a fire. The rotisserie pole that holds the food above the fire wasn't going through both loops.
