Shawnee Jenkins' parents eat people and live in the cellar, but that's okay. They're still Mom and Dad.

Truly chilling. The laid-back country style of the narration and the emotional depth was so rich, and the visuals were perfectly suited to the atmosphere of the piece. Gave me goosebumps. Cried a little. Very well done!

This is, and always will be, my favorite of all the Childrin R Skary series. And it holds a place in my heart as one of my top Newgrounds animations. I'll admit, it isn't much to look at visually, but it has such a story and art style to it that you don't really care. Everything in this animation is 100%, perfectly Grade-A storytelling.

I always think of animations like this one when I'm feeling down, because I honestly have a crappy life myself. I know I'm not exactly an adult, but life hasn't been kind to me so far. But I'm not gonna waste your time with my story, that's what communication via PM is for. Anyhow, when I think of Shawnee, I think of how things get better at some point. They always do, even if it's a bit questionable. The point is, Shawnee reminds me of myself and while things aren't good now, I just have to remember that I do have something good coming my way every so-often. Someday, things won't be so bad anymore.
