It has been a long time coming, but we finally finished the latest Shamoozal cartoon, GFGames: How to Hook Up the NES. In this short, our very own Jacquo the Rabbit takes us through the steps of connecting the world's most memorable console, the Nintendo Entertainment System.

This project has been sitting on our plate for a long time now, and it feels great to finally have it finished. I can say for a fact that this is our best looking, and best sounding GFGames episode yet. Though ultimately how good it is, well, that's up to you guys to decide. We think you'll enjoy it.

To answer some questions, this short was inspired by the old 40s and 50s Disney Goofy shorts. The idea is take a simple concept, like hooking up a Nintendo, and making it much more complicated and tricky than it should be. The aim here is for more of a visual comedy. Of course, a lot of the ideas shown here are also many of the issues all of us dealt with when growing up during the NES age.

Thanks for reading and watching!

back in the 80's, did they do that same thing? Or is it just now that the system is older? Mine does the same thing, but I'm just curious about when it came out. If so, I'd hate to have been a parent at that time...dishing out all that cash for something that works half the time. lol. Nice work with the flash though, it was entertaining and instructional to some degree. Plus it looked incredible. Fantastic animation, line work, and just about everything.

my nintendo is the same!

my nintendo actually the same ting!


So thaat's why contra didn't start for me, I didn't put in a shoe..
