Never read/watched (or whatever) the Charlie Brown series, but from what I can tell you captured it perfectly. I don't know whether its better to read the extras then watch the movie, or to watch the movie and then read the extra's to fill in the blanks, but either way its a brilliant method of capturing both the animation and the comic factors of Charlie Brown. The story was no less, good execution, good pacing, and interesting overall. The voices were good, the art was flawless, and the music was very on the point and well-fitting to the mood. Great work to everyone involved, you guys deserve an award.

I have to say that was just excellent. The story seems very well thought out, the animation and voices are almost spot on (At times Charlie Brown in this has a bit of an accent, though depending upon where you are from he would always have a bit of an accent, this just isn't his standard one).

The back-story was also well done and a definite bonus. I honestly preferred the style of the moving comic strip in chapter 3 over the remainder but that is just me, and the color cartoon is certainly nothing to be scoffed at. I definitely can't wait to see the next bit in the series. I hope for my own entertainment that the story continues on the current line, not rushing to an end but savoring the journey.

Overall great work, the only pseudo negative comment I have is that the flash doesn't resize well in Chrome, but I didn't try it in other browsers. Definitely a series to keep an eye on, though I am sure it will find it's way to the front page. 5/5 and 10/10 to all of the people involved in it, you guys are doing a great job, keep it up.

NEXTVIEW-Designs responds:

No worries, we don't intend to rush the sequel. Part 2 is looking to be even longer. Also, as thanks for the review I'll drop this hint since no one has commented on it yet; there's a small Easter Egg in the art gallery.

That was... such a great story. The animation has a great flow and style.
I love that you guys did not go all out one the gore, but was holding it back and did just show us a small amount of it.

Great ending to :)

NEXTVIEW-Designs responds:

That particular scene was actually more graphic in the storyboard than what you see in the finished animation. So I thought people might be disappointed that there wasn't more gore. So, hopefully most share your opinion on this, thanks.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

The animation and voice work is excellent. I apologize for the lower rating it's just that I have always loved the Charlie Brown series as a child, and although you have captured the dry wit and angst of the series beautifully I have been forever traumatized from one of my beloved childhood favorites. I do appreciate the choice of music for this animation as well. You can tell that you all have put some real work into this animation. So sorry about the 8, but the giant red eye totally sent me into wtf mode. Great animation none the less!
