Whew. So, after months of character design, recording, animating, and flat-out procrastinating, I've finally managed to crank out this Goddamned cartoon. I don't know how well this is going to be received, but I personally think that it's pretty funny, I put a lot of effort into it, and I had a lot of fun making it. This is, as the title cunningly hints at, the first episode of a series I'm putting together. The way I'm writing this series, however, is so that each episode has a completely different tone as all the other episodes. I'm doing this partly as an experiment, and partly just to keep myself from getting bored with the series. Now, one other thing you should know is that there are actually two versions of this animation. In addition to the color version you see here, I also made a version where every color is red (in kind of a tribute/rip-off of Michael Swain's Mastermind series.) I personally prefer this version, as it's much more stylized then the regular color pallet, but nobody I show it too actually likes it, so I decided to hedge my bets and upload it on YouTube. You can find it here: ( watch?v=t8XLqeDt0OU) (You'll have to remove the space in the middle of the URL, of course.) So, watch both versions, and tell me in the comments which one you think is the best. Whichever style gets the most votes is the one that I'll use for the rest of the episodes.
Alright, so that's pretty much all I have to say about this.

EDIT: Holy crap holy crap holy crap I got daily fourth place! Thanks for all the great reviews on this, I didn't respond to all of them, but I have read them all, and thanks to Tom or whoever decides which submissions get frontpaged. :D

You get 10 points for using Fallout 3 music during the main part. :D

*le gasp*

Originally, I was going to rate you 10 only for the fact that it made me LOL, I give you extra points for Dr. Horrible ending music! WOOOOO!!!

5/5, 10/10! Love it!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Dersevers all the high ratings we can give it.

... only thing is for the next one got some more voice actors!!!

8/10, could give you more if you just got more people for voicing other characters.

NerdvanaStudios responds:

I have actually gotten an offer from a voice actor to do some of the voices, and I'm probably also going to use a few of my friends' voices, so I'll se if that turns out any better.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

I'm going to go ahead

and judge this book by the cover (meaning the incredibly lame title).


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


Somewhat funny at times, but boring and dry the MAJORITY of the time. Poor voice acting and writing. Drop the evil guy idea, its not working for you. It seems like you created this super powerful character who can do anything but is too incompetent to do anything. Again, really dull.
