I laughed really hard... Awesome stuff! Really funny story, good animation and voices. My only recommendation is a start button. :)
Thank you! I've been trying to work on a start button, but haven't gotten it to work. I'll get it on the next one, though! :D
It's all in the Ranger's hair!
Yogi Bear meets Ren and Stimpy's style
That is the best combination I've seen in a while. Only complaint is the voice acting well not that but try getting a better mic for the future. Aside from that I got a good jolly laugh out of this parody of everyones favorite picnic basket snagging bear!
Hey uh....can I trouble you for a Flinstones parody as well?
If I ever get a good idea for one, then of course!
It's about time that Early HB got more coverage on here.
As a fan of Early HB and classic cartoons in general, I have to admit that this is easily the best Hanna-Barbera flash on NG. Plus, it just so happens that John K himself is a fan of '57-'63 HB cartoons before they went to shit. With that aside, here's my review...
When it comes the animation, you did a great job on that part. It looks a lot more lively than what was made back then considering that they had to work on obscenely low budgets. As for the 'rough' spots, they looked like the animation of an actual episode of that cartoon. However, the only problem with this is that your backgrounds weren't textured properly. Maybe do some still life painting as a means of learning. Then we have the audio, which is well done considering that you had to do the voices yourself though Ranger Smith sounded a bit off, along with the recording quality. Then again, I don't know anyone who can do such distinctive voices on here. I would also mention that you were smart to use Hoyt Curtin's music, which was perfect. Anything else would not have worked out so well. Finally, the content of this piece. I have to agree with what BIG G said about the R&S influence, which worked considering that you had the comic timing that was (almost) Spumco quality. This was pretty funny in spite of a few dry spots here and there. The only other flaw worth mentioning is that there's no preloader. If you still have the source file, I suggest that you download this site's free preloader and add it to the first frame of your cartoon with a stop(); command.
What was good:
-Mostly great animation
-Great music selection
What wasn't so good:
-The acting, while good, could have been better recorded.
-Backgrounds could use better textures.
Overall: Here's a nine from me. (4.5/5)
Thanks for the review! I've been trying to upload a version with a freeloader, and hopefully it works now! If not I'll have to keep re-uploading it until it works out!
As for the backgrounds, you're right. I tried to make them as simple as I could as to not take up a lot of space, but they still did. I made them separately in Photoshop, so next time I'll probably just make them in flash, and add some more shading/coloring into them! Also, the Mic quality is a good pick-up, too. The voices of Boo-Boo and Ranger Smith were done by some friends of mine, we'll definitely work on the Mic quality next time!
Thanks for the review, though, I'll definitely work on those issues!
He looks like SCP-173!
