Short Version: I'm back from a 10 year hiatus and draw my cartoons now instead of using sprites. There's many more to come, although they will be quick 'n dirty because I have a family and a job these days.

Long Version: Hi everyone, I'm back to Newgrounds! Many aeons ago I used to make sprite movies - in fact, they're still in my profile here. Then I went away for literally a decade. Went to college, got a day job somewhere, got married... but this is the internet, nobody cares about that brouhaha.

So this is a quick short I made in a couple of weeks just now - while still working said day job, I'm trying my best to produce new content for here and for my YouTube channel - so I can be the internet animator I've always wanted to be. I'm still the same 'ol me as before, except you're going to see both parodies -and- original content from me now. But I can assure you, the sense of humor that somehow kept you all entertained despite my films' crappy visuals back then is still intact.

This here, is something original. I have plans for more short gags involving this unlucky fellow - I hope everyone likes it! You can also see it on YouTube and subscribe to me there if you truly enjoy it - I would appreciate it!

If I even have any 'fans' left from the 2001 era, you're all grown up now like I am! How is your life now compared to then? Tell me in the comments :)

P.S. Sorry for not including a play/replay screen. My future submissions will definitely include them.

I happen to be a fan of yours from all those years ago. It's great, because I am ALWAYS looking at old people returning to the website. It's kind of sad, because I do like the sprite flashes more. There just aren't many of them nowadays. I think sim-man still has the record for longest time between submitting something. The animation was of course good.

It was interesting to see you take on something completely different. The image at the end with the spider leg is pretty funny too. I have graduated High School and am still in college. The voice came off as pretty funny. I guess insects eating people alive are cool like that.

Very short, but colorful and thematically different than the usual fare here. I can forgive the lack of a pre-loader and a replay button (right-click rewind works), because care was taken creating all aspects of the piece.
Huh, I was growed up when I joined NG in those wild-west days of yore. How's my life now compared to 2001? 9/11 was the catalyst for a steady stream of suckiness, that extends to this day, sry to say.

I loved the idea about this and it definitely made me smile (I love the Ren and Stimpy soundtrack! It suits it well!) but its just ... TOO ... short! A few more sketches would have helped convey this man's horrible luck!

Truth be told, this is part of a larger short with multiple gags and skits. But I am determined to provide a new short or two every month, so I split it up into a one-gag-per-short basis. Once I get a few finished I may submit them as one long movie with redone sound as a "special edition" though. :)
