Alright, Daily 3rd! Thanks, a lot NG!

Round 3 entry for Albino Black Sheep's Tournament of Flash Artists 2012, where animators have three weeks to animate a cartoon around a theme.

Round theme: "Me, Myself, and I"
Challenge: Include a delivery.
Opponent this Round: Wooleyworld

Man, these entries just get longer and longer. For this round, I wanted to include Sarah again, but decided to make another character the focus of the story. Iggy's an oldie of mine; he's best described as "jittery, lily-livered, and an all-around wuss-basket." You would be too if you were so fragile.

I'd like to extend a special thanks to these voice actors who (to my knowledge) do not have Newgrounds accounts: Brandon Strong, Sarah Williams, Chris Bastin and Zachary Rudolph. Thanks, guys!

EDIT: It's a video now; sound issues should be resolved, and you can pause it since it's pretty long. Yay.

All that aside, please enjoy!

Dicks and balls - it's all about NG

I just wanted to say that I love this cat character. Everything she does is cute and hilarious! I wish the whole cartoon was about her. Anyway, this is a great cartoon in itself. All the voices were wonderful. I had no idea it would be for something that brief.

It's still pretty rewarding, though. I love how he says he's just a figment of Iggy's imagination. I thought his name would be spelled "Eggy". The animation moved so nice and fluidly. I'm glad you guys all worked on it.

There is a very unique charm to this piece.
Usually I skip through animations like this: after all, I, like most others, mainly visit newgrounds for fast-paced stimulating action and profane humour. Once in a while I come across animations like this: usually the work of a student or a small animation studio with a very placid theme pertaining to daily life: no violence and no profanity. Usually they're pretty boring with shitty humour and story, and I just close the tab.
That's what I expected when I started watching this animation.
But I'm telling you, I don't know why, but I just kept watching it.
I'm not going to lie: it wasn't funny, it wasn't stimulating.. but it was just.. entertaining. it was interesting to watch. I felt a certain charm, a certain engaging atmosphere, something resonated with me, despite the mundane theme and cliched design. Perhaps it was the great visuals or the sound or the voice acting... I don't know.. or perhaps the minor details were well weaved in enough to compensate for a lack of an original story. Or perhaps it was precisely because the theme is so familiar to everyone and it was just realistically portrayed. But I digress.
All in all, I was enthralled enough to log in and write a (positive) review.

Animation and sound is great.
But the script and story are kinda boring.
