A short animation about.... well not even I know what it's about. It's intended to be cute and sweet with a little twist of that special something else.
Special thanks to Marcorocco for the inspiration for the character and adorable voice as well as Stephen Charlton for helping with some of the coding.
Comments and criticisms are most welcome. Enjoy!

Just to clear some things up:
Yes, it is a short animation but so what?
Yes, it is meant to be lighthearted (and "pointless")
Yes, it is supposed to be funny and cute

No, Marco does not have down syndrome
No, it doesn't have a plot but why should it?
No, Marco is not retarded.

Why does it have to make sense? Can't it just be open to interpretation or the viewers' perception? Take it for what it is, a short and simple animated short.

Thanks for all comments and criticism, all feedback has been noted for future submissions. Animations need not only an artist, but an audience as well. So I thank you all for watching!

I enjoyed the graphics ,but the animation seemed a tad off.I would have like to see a little more interaction within the sketch!The narrator could have been more transparent also!But overall all i thought it was quite nice!


what was that that he drew?


It feels like you made it exactly what you wanted it to be.


Overall It is a good flash. I don't think it's fair to judge your submission on content. However, I respect your skill. The animation was seamless and demonstrated competence. Also, you used a pretty well balanced palette in your art. The sound quality was excellent which is a major credit to you. However, In my opinion your lip synch was very slightly off. Also I had expected to see a bit more emotion in the character. I aknowledge the fact that it is your character but at points he appeared wooden. I hope that this review will help and I look forward to your next submission.


Nothing much, but it was good enough to be liked. In all seriousness, I'm actually like that on occasion. I've actually been asked if I was deficient or on drugs.
