***If you saw this on the site earlier, it had some major bugs in it. Those bugs are removed and the flash is working! Sorry about that.***

About three months ago.. err.. ok how do I explain how this idea came up? Well, I was sitting on a couch at 4AM in the morning with my friend Alex talking about random flash cartoon ideas. We came up with some pretty ridiculous ideas like "The Party Dinosaur" and ideas like that had me questioning my sexuality... ANYWAY we gave up and decided to go to sleep. About ten minutes later, I woke Alex up and did a little improv skit about the tootsie roll pop commercial. Don't ask why I did an improv skit, I JUST DID OK. So then he threw in some more concepts like that the turtle should have "Mongolian Erectile Dysfunction" and after a few hours of writing this dark comedy on my computer, I voiced everything together in my dorm and BOOM.

Yes that's right, I did all the voice acting in my dorm. Don't ask why I voiced this in my dorm where everyone could hear me, I JUST DID OK. I sent it over to Sh0t-D0wn and after a handful of PMs back and forth it was 90% done. I took the animated movie, took out all the glitches, made a nice little pre-loader, edited some stuff, and abra kadabra the movie was done.

Well, I am so glad that this movie is done! It wouldn't have been possible without the amazing animating talents of Sh0t-d0wn. We have been working on this flash for the past month now and have finally gotten everything together. After crashing over 50 times, here is the final outcome!

Gross, funny, classic, etc.


Funny stuff. FUNNY stuff. I found it quite funny that you put an erectile dysfunction disease at the end. I'm not sure if I just didn't see it or not, but what was coming out of the turtle!?


i dont know that could have been funnier if you would have had more logical comedy and not so much swearing from the owl. but ill give this it was a great topic to instagate onyou could make this into a good series

It will not be a series, this was more of a test to see how "far out" we could be. Also, it is my first directed project! :)

My next project might have a different animator, but it is about a walrus named "Slappy"


You know how to animate, but is it really that hard to write something clever instead of relying on us to think that loud swears coming from a traditionally mundane source is funny? It just drags on and on and on, and then when you think it should be over with the turtle section (great voice acting, more uninspired and more importantly unfunny writing) it goes right back and basically kicks around the jokes you just made all over again.

And no, before you start thinking I am, I'm not against this because it has goddamned language. I'm against this because you seem to think that language in and of itself is funny and some guy cursing at a microphone for a while is comedic gold.

Nope, I wasnt cursing for comedy I was cursing because it was the owl's character. It is not I who is doing the cursing, but the character who is. Certain writing involves writing lines based on what the character would say and no necessarily based on what is "funny". The owl is depressed, over-stressed, and on the path to insanity all because of this little kid coming to ask him the same question every single day of his life. The owl can't do anything about it. He won't kill him, that's absurd on his perspective. He just gets PISSED and throws the F bomb a hundred times, not for the sake of comedy but for the sake of the character.

The "joke" isnt repeated, the story is repeated. It is showing the owl's life in a loop hole. The kid goes to the owl, then to the turtle, then to the owl again. The owl can't take it anymore so he kills himself, ending it all.

Also, this comedy is more absurd than anything. It's suppose to be funny because it is ridiculous. The turtle throws up because... well, read the definiton of Mongolian Erectile Dysfunction at the end and you will see.

my god....

Here I was.... getting onto newgrounds... figured ide give this flash a little looky looky for the nostalgia effect of this commercial...

and oh my god... its so beautiful. This flash is just so god damn beautiful.... thank you. thank you for creating this.
