Kangaroo Transit

Share Collapse

A kangaroo road train driver is stranded in the outback and needs to find his way back to civilisation.

I've had this cartoon short on my mind for a good few years now, going back to when I first started to use Flash. It's been in actual development for eight months, with me stopping to take breaks every so often. I've always wanted to make a cartoon set in the Australian bush, and feature kangaroos in it. Makes a change from foxes anyway!

The music was composed by ScienceDog.

He got a wife from the tribe, a baby boy & he became his father

The sound and art style somehow "felt" like Australia, if that makes any sense. It was well made, and didn't suffer from lack of voices or dialogue, but I didn't find the story compelling or the least bit interesting.

I'm not sure if it's the uploader or NG who is responsible, but the play/pause/duration "player" at the bottom is somewhat of a must-have for me. However, I will NOT deduct stars from this rating for THAT, just (if it IS a choice you made) please include it in future uploads.

This was fun to watch. I can tell you spent a long time on this. Good job!


What an after-credit twist! XD And what a strange day for that one poor guy, dragged into the chase after a relic to which he has no tie. It really was a full-feature animation, presented in maybe not the most linear and sense-making way at first, but after a while... everything falls into place. Overall and enjoyful venture, with scenery that gets me thinking of the Road Runner. Nice work!
