Runaway Cake

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Two Brothers named Ike(blue) and Mike(yellow) are given orders by the Grand Hand to bake a cake. The cake was made successfully however the kitchen was ruined in the process. Once the Grand Hand comes back home, he sees what Ike and Mike have done resulting in a crazy chase.

Music is from the movie Rat Race(2001) and was composed by John Powell

This was actually a project for a class at the school I'm currently getting ready to graduate from. I really wanted to magnify the importance of timing and choreography of the characters movements. Plus the music was really inspiring, in an outlandish and chaotic sorta sense. In a nut shell there are no political bashing's or satanic messages, just an animation created for pure enjoyment, so... enjoy!

Highly highly enjoyable.

Very nice animation you have here. This music is catchy, too. Just goes to show that actions speak louder than words.

Love it.

The cake is a lie.

I'm sorry, I had to say that...
But back to the animation.
The style was tasteful, the story was cute, the timing was impeccable.
I can't think of any bad points to rant on.


very cool

like verything about it

Great song and stuff

Well at first when I read the name I thought it was going to be about a cake running away while trying to be eaten and it certainly seemed like those guys did look like cakes. However, I should know by now that the cake is a lie (lol). That being said, I really enjoyed this. The great animatoin (no black outlines, fantastic!) made it enjoyable the whole way through along with the notion of hands popping out everywhere and grabbing things and at the end when they simply give the cake to the dude who can't reach it now anyway.


That was awesome. Reminds me of times when we all watched hanna-barbera toons. Thumbs up!
