I animated this for Vollmer Public Relations. It was our way of saying happy Texas Independence Day to our clients and contacts. I provided the voice for "The Father of Texas" Stephen F. Austin and our CEO Helen Vollmer voiced her character.

i'm from texas so ya

i thot it was funny for the joke on Davey and the animation was deesent so good job and ceep it up.

Quite funny

I was not expecting much, but this was really interesting. As a guy who knows a lot about history, I was fairly familiar with Stephen Austin, even though I did not know Davy Crockett only lived in Texas for two years. It is always a good idea to put a funny twist on history. One main flaw is that there could have been a background. I guess that might have been part of the joke, but I am glad you did your research. The best part might be at the end when he apologizes for coming off a bit too harsh.

The end

The end made me laugh.
Btw ime also from texas

I'm from TX

And this made me laugh.

Davey Crocket was from Tennesse, but like all great men, he finally came to his senses and moved to Texas.

Ok, arrogance aside, Davey, along with quite a few notable Texans, were quite progressive for their time. They were all for the integration of Mexican, American and Native Americans. Davey was pretty pissed at Andrew Jackson for signing bills that would run Native Americans off their land. He came here to hang out, since Texas was still pretty much wild land, ranches and a wonderful melting pot. Then Santa Anna came in and rained on everyone's parade by trying to butt Mexico's authority into everyone's business.

But I digress.

As a native Texan myself, I'd like to say...

... that Stephen F. Austin was hilarious the way you made him. I thought it was funny that you also brought up Davy Crockett and let Austin have a little playful argument with your CEO.

Great work!
