Dinosaurs hmm, this might make for some interesting plot development! :D Entertaining as always, though that 'Clothes' clip blew my speakers, a bit more balanced volume throughout the episode would be neat indeed! Onto the next part...


Bertn1991 responds:

Thank you!! I'm glad you liked it : ) Spoiler alert, there are no dinosaurs in the next episode, but something much, much more deadly.

You are not gonna like the next episode. Your speakers are gonna explode! I will work on sound more next time : )

Foxted fl4kes o.O?

That is a registered trademark of Yonder Ho! You may not use it! >: (

This has to be the longest episode out of this entire series.

That is saying a lot since half hour episodes is average running time for each episode.

I noticed that clouds in the background would sometimes move in later parts of this episode.

I was gonna mention the clouds were stationary in the early parts of the show.

I loved a lot of the backgrounds in the desert town and you often seen power lines.

You paid a lot of attention to detail; However, the backgrounds in the city were very ugly in comparison.

A city is very difficult to draw because of complex building structures along with other details such as roads, sidewalks, powerlines, ect.

Most people draw a city as a series of tall square buildings but it is generally a common mistake.

I already mentioned that a city background is difficult to draw because of the level of subtle details that most people fail to notice.

The desert town had better backgrounds by far in comparison.

You seen graffiti on the walls, power lines and a lot of other neglected details that would have enhanced your city backgrounds.

I love the water effect on the scene where pete and his sister crossed the river.

The way you animated the waves looked great since.

I would add an addition of some lights reflecting onto your characters.

The next time that you go swimming in a pool.

observe some of the reflected light from the water bounce off of it's subject.

It's a subtle detail and is really difficult to explain with giving away visual examples.

I generally love a lot of the animation and drawings in this entire episode.

Many of your backgrounds were different levels of quality as already explained perviously before.

Perhaps, creating short episodes will leave more time to focus on important backgrounds.

I also noticed an increase of self parody within your series as a whole.

If you have missing but important audio files than you think of humorous work arounds.

That shows both creativity and a sense of humor.

You sometimes mocked your animation flaws whenever to farther enhance the humorous use of motion tweens.

The humorous use of a motion tween would be when pete moves to another direction without actually moving any part of his body.

Than you add the sarcastic text, '' Great animation, bro'' to farther enhance the gag.

That gag was only funny the first few times and I wouldn't recommend any farther utilization.

The recap of the pervious episode displayed another example of self parody and joked about you use of the hero's journey type of story.

You even had a gag about the animal side kick concept since pete was always paired up with different animals before episode 6.

The episode had a lot of humorous aspects about it and some of the live action footage served to enhance comedy.

I personally hated the live action footage because it distracted me away from the cartoon.

I like how you used a flashback from episode one to explain pete's magic bag to new viewers.

I seen episode two first and the magic bag seemed to have come out of nowhere.

This show seemed to have a consistent loose continuity.

I learned more about the characters in this episode and the fears of a certain character added something significant to the story.

I like how this episode turned out.

Thank you for yet another well written, thoughtful review, Mighty D! Thank you for taking the time to watch such a long episode. This is by far the longest episode. So far at least.

I spent much more time on backgrounds in this episode. You can find Easter eggs in most of the backgrounds if you look hard enough. Did you find the Portal gun? And also, there's a hidden grizzly goat in every episode. There's lots of little things like that to look for. Maybe you've noticed the red grill that seems to be everywhere, or the barrel with the yellow heart on it, or the snowman. I intentionally reuse the same objects a lot. They're almost like characters! And yes, I am a big fan of power lines in my drawings. They just add a certain touch in my opinion. More time was spent on animation, as well. The water effect was made by using many different layers moving at different speeds.

Yes, I do make fun of myself a lot. Before starting this show I had no writing experience and very little drawing experience (I still can't draw!) I can see that my cartoon is not a masterpiece and is easy to find fault. I like poking fun at that fact. The show is easy to make fun of, but is still very special to me. Oh well, if you can't laugh at yourself . . .

I love these reviews of yours. I always look forward to seeing what you have to say. Sadly, there are only two more episodes remaining. After that, it'll probably be months before I finish the next one. I hope you'll still be around by then to watch. Thanks again, Mr. Mighty. YOU ARE COOL.

This was even better than the last one! Can't wait to see the next episode.

Bertn1991 responds:

Yay!! Thank you so so much! Spoiler alert, the next episode is about giant cats.

i just dont like this

Bertn1991 responds:

I'm sorry my cartoon isn't up to your standards. I wish you'd at least watched it all before judging so harshly : (
