Okay so I debated even putting this on Newgrounds, but people told me I should so here it is. Before you watch this, I'd advise you at least read this.

I wanted to make a short using the SNES game Mario Paint. I thought it would be fitting to use Frankensteiner from the Crapfest Force short I made over a year ago, since the drawings and animation are intended to be hideous. So yesterday I did just that. I set up a live stream, hooked up my old SNES and Mario Paint, and spent 12 hours making Frankensteiner: Muscle Quest. Is it good? Not really. Is it ridiculous? Sure as hell is. Why even use Mario Paint all these years later? Well, I thought it would be fun trying to apply what I know about making cartoons these days to something ancient like that. So yeah, this thing is built with Mario Paint.

The video I've uploaded contains both the new Mario Paint short, Muscle Quest, along with the original short, The Toughest. So you can watch both of them together in all their horrible glory. There is even a notes section with some more insight into this project.

The Muscle Quest looks extra terrible because its been compressed to death and blown up. The SNES video and images were captured as 320x240 images. The video was then put together using Premeire, was compressed, and then was compressed again when importing it to Flash. I also scaled the video up. So it's rather messy to say the least.

Anyway, blam me, flame me, or laugh. Do whatever you want. I don't care. But if you have fun, than yay for me. :)

The hell?

What the fuck man...lol that has me in stitches...so bad...lol

that was impresive

useing mario maint must have looked hard

Impressive that it's made with Mario Paint.

At first i would have given a lot of points on how the animation needed major improvements on quality & detail but when i read up on how you made this with Mario Paint i was pretty impressed that you made an actual flash with that old program/SNES game it kind of makes me want to go back and mess with Mario Paint now haha but yeah that was pretty cool how you made a flash with that so that alone gives you a good score from me cause i know you can do much better if you put 100% in but this was just a swell flash to mess around with.

Just Amazing

I still can't believe this was done both using Mario Paint, and within a one day span of time. Completely random and following the predecessor from Crapfest Force. I love Frankensteiner and how you continue to use him in future shorts!

You guys at the Shamoozal rock! Keep up the fantastic work!

I found that muscle quest to be the best.

Muscle quest was quite awesome because of the graphics were crappy but the randomness of the humor was funny. However, the toughest was not crappy enough to be good.
