After a 3 year gap, Salad Fingers returns in his longest episode yet.


I really need some context

I've been watching these for years, and I still just don't see what you're going for. They're entertaining, sure, in a weird for weird's sake kinda way; and I guess that the bizarre nature of Salad Fingers' psyche could well just be your expression of true delusion and futility. But I always assumed there was something more. Some grand metaphor which would put the entire series into some context; which would make each part of each animation into an actual relevant part of some wider message.

If there isn't one, it doesn't mean that the animations are any less entertaining, but, I won't lie, I'd be somewhat disappointed. Especially as you've shown the capability to use interpretation and metaphor to make funny and ironic cartoons about a wide range of topics, from politics, to television, to dreams, even down to the one you did where you expressed constipation as people struggling to leave a house.

I'm really really hoping that there's some meaning behind this series which I simply haven't been perceptive enough to grasp.

Long indeed

For those of you keeping record, I believe this episode is roughly eight minutes long. It was just so great to see this character come back after all this time. I think this even makes a new transition for him. I read a lot of crazy theories about the reality of the world Salad Fingers lives in. I heard some people argue that he does not have multiple personality disorder as he does not speak as other people in different voices. He finally did when talking as Yvonne.

It's hard to determine whether or not anything is real. What does matter is that this has by far the best animation in the entire series and it's great to see how far you have come. SF's voice is extremely haunting. I was waiting for one of his puppets to appear. It is great to know that such a popular series is still going on.
