I hope you enjoyed nearly FOUR MONTHS OF WORK on this episode. The Squishables participate in an evacuation drill. This is the first appearance of Extop, the teacher of this season's students, and hooray, hardly (if not none) any mouth loops used in this cartoon (not even for a bit)!

I'm a fan of most of your work, but everything about this feels forced and 'artificial', this is quite possibly one of the most boring plots for anything I have seen in a while, not even super gimicky music and sound effects can save this plot.

The computer voices are weird, try to use at least some grammar when you're inputting the text into your text to speech program and everything ends up sounding like complete gibberish, if you need subtitles than that's a surefire sign that there are some problems.

The dialogue and English is fucking shit, you still do not have a remotely decent grasp of the language because you still use stupid terms that make no sense like "less better," cartoons like this are the very definition of selling out, I expect Bake Sale to be better, Purple Day was 10 times better than this, take notes from yourself, thanks, bye

Bad, especially for 4 months of work.

You are an animator. As an animator, you can literally animate anything you want to, anything at all, and you choose to animate an evacuation drill, and spend four months animating a cartoon about an evacuation drill. The episode opens with a shot of a poorly-drawn intercom that's guaranteed to hurt your eyes if you look for too long, which is a problem since he does stay on that shot for way too long. It's painfully drawn out, just like the rest of the episode.

This episode is bland and uninteresting for the most part. The closest thing to insight in this cartoon is the female antagonist going "there goes the useless morning announcements" or whatever, and even that isn't insightful. The dialogue is atrocious. Having the teacher be mean really kills it since there are rarely any conversations among the actual students, and any conversations they do have are completely bland and cardboard.

The conversations are plastic and artificial, as in, nobody says these things. The worst line in the entire cartoon comes when someone calls someone else a "dumb dumb," which is an atrocious piece of dialogue since these are HIGH SCHOOLERS, and you are scripting them as if they're in kindergarten.

None of the characters have any personalities, typically the class always acts together as a single entity. None of the students bother to take any risks and none of the students are remotely interesting. There are like 8 students (probably a wrong estimate but I don't care enough to check) in the class, and it is impossible to distinguish one from another, aside from design.

I mean, you spent 4 or 5 years on a cartoon series about mindless drones blindly obeying authority and conforming to a ridiculous system. It's actually quite pathetic when you think about it. This episode was awful, and not just because of the atrocious dialogue. Not even your gimmicky music choices can make boring scenes like the evacuation drill interesting.

The animation was alright, I might even go as far as to say, it was good sometimes. But what good is passable animation when your writing isn't worth shit?
