Christlan the Jesus-Allegory Lion reveals he is known in our world by another name.
This is a parody of the Chronicles of Narnia "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" book in which Aslan says he is known by another name in our world, alluding to the fact that C.S. Lewis intended him to symbolize Jesus. This idea was somewhat inspired by Robot Chicken's "Chronicles of Narnia" parody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrplL8orvac

Ha ha, Xenu. Yes, kids, of course, it's Xenu! Him coming back to life was symbolic of the re-emergence of Thetans after being blown up by H-bombs at the base of a volcano, or however it goes. That's why he wouldn't shut up about Adam and Eve. Oh wait, I know who he is? He's not George Takai or Barack Obama, he's Eddie Izzard! The stupid lion is an allegory for Eddie Izzard!

But in what sense is Lord of the Rings a Christianity allegory, much less Gandalf an allegory for Jesus? I thought it was a random splash of Norse legends and, er, Dungeons and Dragons or something. I'm just kidding, I know it predates Dungeons and Dragons.

Who did the boy say before Muhammad? I can't make it out?

The boy says "Buddha" before Muhammad. And yeah, I never really got the whole Gandalf Jesus-allegory thing either, I was just basing that on some Christian book my mom gave me when I was younger claiming "The Lord of the Rings" was really all about Jesus.
Thanks for watching, and thanks for the review! :D

I have to admit, I came here expecting a rant on religion, and was more than pleasantly disappointed.
This was quite enjoyable and personally I found it funny.
My only complaint was the slow beginning...and by slow I mean the way they talked

I'm glad you enjoyed it! And thanks for the feedback on the beginning, someone else mentioned the pacing of the beginning, so I'll have to keep that in mind for cartoons in the future.

not bad are you positive your not gonna get sued?

dogsinthecathouse responds:

Lolz, you mean by Robot Chicken? Come on! There's nothing wrong with taking other people's ideas and putting your own spin on them! Even Shakespeare stole! :P

Even though I haven't read the books, the humor in this is very clever and I thought this was pretty funny. Despite that it was somewhat predictable and that there was more cursing than necessary, I can tell that this was well thought out and took time and effort to produce. This is a nice jab at the seldom seen Christian-fantasy genre. Good job!

Thanks for your review, I'm glad you liked it! :)

Alright, the beginning was a bit dry but it got better during the end and was entertaining. No complaints but no praise either.
