Thanks for watching and for the daily 3rd place! :D

don't forget to RATE this video! - It helps out a great deal :)

My apologies for this not being higher res. I've given up trying to get it working in Flash. If you're keen to see a higher res copy please check it out on Youtube!

"Happy Birthday Bob!" was a real labor of love, combining over 5 weeks of rewrites, restarts and a lot of crying in the corner of the room. I am so chuffed at the results and hope you enjoy it as much as I hated making it... wait, that's not right.

This short is dedicated to my big brother, Nick :o)

Rated 5 / 5 stars

The author seems to have the same sense of humor as Catburt the evil director of human resources from Dilbert.

CamoRalph responds:

haha, interesting. I've never actually watched Dilbert ;)
To be honest this cartoon (and a lot of the Bob stuff I've done prior) was based off that awesome Looney Toons short with Daffy Duck vs. the artist... I forget what it's called, but it always stuck with me growing up. Such a cool approach to breaking the 4th wall. Bob will certainly evolve over time though.

Thanks for watching! :)

This reminded me of family guy too.
I also felt the end was creepy.

CamoRalph responds:

Hopefully creepy funny? It's all tongue-in-cheek after all.
Plus after seeing so many "dudes raping each other" toons blaze through here I'd hope this toon was pretty tame by comparison.
Thanks for watching dude!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This reminds me of family guy for some reason. Anyway, it was funny till the end, then it got creepy...

CamoRalph responds:

Oh god, really? Yikes, hope they don't ALL look that way... I used to dig Family Guy but it's just pointless fodder now.
Anyways, glad you liked it dude! haha, yeah the ending was a bit of a game changer.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Brilliant! Good Animation; Good Audio; And Rather Funny Too!

My only critism is that it look a bit distorted when scaled. Potentially shrink the vid's physical dimensions? (In order to fix this)

But Overall: Fantastic to see new and original content

Sweet! Cheers for watching man.
Yeah I agree things are a little distorted. It's actually meant to be that big, but was made as a sort of "hack" job using movs. Converting ToonBoom to Flash is like fighting a bear with a toothbrush.

Thanks for the feedback and for voting! :o)

Oh god, that was so funny my sides still hurt. Probably the best thing I've seen today, I loved it. The only problem I could possibly think was that it wasn't longer, but even as it is I believe it to be fantastic. Good job! I hope to see more like this
