Death & Taxes Ep. I

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: (http://www.youtube.com/ 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



....I did this stuff last monday........


It was a great flash.... almost seems like what almost anyone here at Newgrounds would be like as a supervillain... and I wait expectantly for a sequal good sir.
I did notice, for a minute or two, in the talk show, the voices sort of got..... put in a mono in a way, like it was done through a recorder and played INTO another recorder, or something of that nature.

It was good, but

I like the red version a little better, I think it fits the tone more.
