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 just watched this and liked it a hell of a lot, then I noticed you're from Melbourne.
I too am a Melbournian, and word on the street is that we are the greatest.

Yaay! Go Me!bourne. Whereabouts are you in me!bourne?

u kno what

ther r so meny random and sensless things on newgrounds that get a good rep why should this get a bad one?

i love that

make it longer


this was a quite curious short, but it still made me laugh. your animation is simplistic and humorous, and gets the point across without going too far. the whole flower thing made me think of hallucinogens, but i have no idea what you had in mind doing that. this kid Marco sounds like an intriguing (or slow) fellow.

well done

the animation is very well done and runs smoothly. i like the voice of the mystery person. was this a test flash of yours?

kaav responds:

Why thank you. It's my voice in fact. No this is a final animation. Yes it's short but who says how long or short something should be.
