EDIT: Daily first and front page again! Thanks guys! I was worried for a bit that it may not have lived up to the work I put in, so it's a relief to know you all enjoy it! Also, a quick note, even if I don't respond to many comments, I read all of them and consider all suggestions, and any simple ones I'll make an effort to fix.

OH MY GOD, I am so glad this is finally done. This is my first cartoon to use some new animation methods I learned, so it took FOREVER. I think it was worth it, though. The animation is smoother, the art is cleaner, and in the end, this WILL end up helping me work faster. For all the work I put in, it does seem just a tad short to me, but it was a fantastic learning experience. I hope you all find it to be...spectacular.

Also, I'd like to give a special thanks to Jazza for lending his voice and helping me a couple of times when I got stuck! :)


Q: What is that anatomical structure attached to his chin?

A: I don't know. It has been speculated that it may be a biological straw for drinking coffee while yelling at people.

Q: Why does he hate Fernando?

A: It's intentionally irrational.

Q: Why does he hate the little pudgy guy in the red suit?

A: Why don't you?

If I could just go higher

Love this, I just wish I could you higher than a ten. If you can somehow salvage a sequel from this, you totally should. Like an afterlife video or a prequel. Or maybe just defy all logic and make another one. Either way, awesomeness.

Get some Mechanics on that.

It was spectacular! (NO PUN INTENDED)

I very much enjoyed the humor and especially the voice acting! Great animation and very hilarious! I appreciated the red suit joke and to top it all off you added a TARDIS to the end of it! As a huge Doctor Who fan I must give you a gross of props for that! I hope you keep on making such great animations!

Agree with TarileFreak

Most of Newgrounds is 14-17 year old kids, so you can't go by them when they say "this was hilarious!! so funny". Your animation was good, but TarileFreak hit the nail on the head with a lot of things that could use some work. There were a lot of poorly written jokes, that while you may say fits the goofy style of humor you were going for, they come across more as lazy, with no real sense of purpose. (red suit joke). The trick to writing a good comedy is sitting down and writing out a script or screen play before animating. This way, even if the animation is bad, the writing and story is still solid. Fortunately, you did have pretty good animtion. Voice acting could use a lot of work (next time go on a forum and ask for multiple people to do voices for multiple characters. "hey guys, i need a really good black-guy voice for a character I'm writing up in a new animation I'm working on!").

All in all, not bad, but could use work. Keep at it though!!!

WhiteLightning responds:

What's with ragging on the Star Trek reference? I think a brief red-shirt mention is perfectly acceptable in a sci-fi short. I rewrote this thing multiple times as always, I think I varied my voice quite well for the ones I did, and the "black-guy voice" WAS done by someone else who's quite a talented and Newgrounds-renowned voice actor. If you didn't find the short funny, that's perfectly fine. Everyone's tastes are different, and I'm honestly pleasantly surprised so many people do enjoy it. But every part of the story was exactly as it was meant to be and was worked on vigorously, and I'd appreciate it if it was not chalked up to laziness because your preferences differ from my style.

Gotta love it

Fantastically done as always. Once again I've seen a submission of yours on the front page, got excited, and was not let down. Thank you for another great animation.
