I just wanted to say thanks for just over a week on the front page. I appreciate it Tom. We even got the big featured item slot for a day or two! So that was really wicked :D
As of today we also hit 100k views which is awesome! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to watch. It was a blast to make, and I appreciate the support. Look out for a volume 3 somewhere down the line!

Sorry for some of the initial bugs with the menu, but I got everything ironed out. The About section now works, the sounds contributed are corrected, and a few other minor adjustments are ready to go!!


"Did You Hear That?" is a collaboration of sound and animation from 10 talented artists here on Newgrounds.

All participants in this collab were hand selected by me, Goat-Man. All activities in this collab were conducted through privatemessages. Meaning members had no interaction with each other, and never knew who they were working with.

Each member was told to hand in one random sound effect.The sound was allowed to be anything that they wanted. I took all handed in sound effects, and organized them into a random order. Each member was given this compiled sound file, and weren't allowed to change it in any way.

Since there were no interactions between members, each animation came out 100% different because they were unable to take ideas from one another.

The name "Did You Hear That?" came from the idea that each sound effect was interpreted differently. So each member heard and invisioned a different scene than the others.

This is actually the first time that members in the collab will be able to see everyone that they worked with throughout the project. But, that was really just me being a tease more than anything :P

Thank you so much to the members for your hard work and efforts.
This was a blast to work on, and I loved organizing it!
I hope you all love how it turned out as much as I do.

Special thanks to LazyMuffin for narrating the menu, and also making a fantastic song! It really helped make it that much more enjoyeable :)
A big thanks to Mr. Fulp for giving us a spot on the front page, as well as the featured movie section! Thanks so much! I love Newgrounds!!

History in the making.

I am truly glad I got to be a part of this freakin' awesome collab. Not only are all the parts great and quite different, but Goat-Man did a fine job with organizing everything and adding features.

My gripes are minor: occasionally you could see the outlines of the parts change a little bit like they weren't quite centered on the screen (I usually fix this by adding a slightly thick-lined border around the movie), the sounds in the menus clash together if you press a button too soon , and... you gave me a Mario sprite for an intro animation! It was a nice sprite, yes. But I'd have made an avatar animation if I had known lol

Once again, I'm grateful to have participated, and everyone did a seriously great job. 10/10

Sorry man, but I had the most trouble trying to think of what to do for your transitional animation. Not a lot to do based on "JonBro"
So instead I made you into one of the Mario bros!

Glad to have you on board! I've gotten several comments complimenting your part. I think it's easily the most insane piece of both parts of the series O_o

Good job to everyone who made a flash for this. But my top 3 favs would have to be.

1. JonBro
2. Elfman-Rox
3. coughing-dog

But seriously, Everyone did really well. It's people like these that inspire me to learn how to animate. Well done.

Noodle responds:

Glad that you could be inspired :)
Thanks for listing favs to. Maybe I should ask more people to do that!

The funniest most random craziest weirdest, but funnest thing i ever seen!!!!!! deserves to be put on tv shows :D :D great job! -two Thumbs up!!!!-

Noodle responds:

Wouldn't that be something to be on tv!? Althought I doubt this would round up a big enough audience. Glad to hear you think it could deserve it though :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Another great one, i liked the variety of interpretations and styles, and the overall nice quality (and humor) of the animations, although i think the actual 'randomly-ordered-track' eventually lacked some variety of sounds.
Anyway that's part of the randomness of the experiment so i still give you TEN.

I have to say.

coughing-dog and JonBro made me laugh the most. Maybe its because im a sucker for silly faces but never mind.

This is proof that all artists on Newgrounds have a different agenda.

It may be to make people laugh, to make people admire your art, or maybe even just show them what great ideas you can think up.

Great work and idea. 5/5

Noodle responds:

It really is an excellent edium for showcasing talents. It's the only place you get such good feedback from so many people! Thanks
