Been a member here since '06, (don't mind the alt lol) and I miss the golden ages ever since. It seem just too easy to pass a submission through the portal with little to no effort at all. Hardly anyone looks through it and only would just watch stuff through the front page instead. I admit, I'm no different from Pico. But then, I came across THIS movie. It left me a with a smile on my face, it's everything I remembered from the 'golden ages' but a bit more 'modernized'! The parodies are just as it should it (lol cock joke!), and everything else is just perfect.
Sure, we had some falling outs, Edd Gourd dying, the ads, Youtubers and the memes. Dear god, the memes. This flas- I mean, video submission was just I needed I think it's one of my favorite Pico movies of all time... next to Unloaded of course, lol.
What's more, you actually got Tom Fulp to voice here, wow! It's literally a love letter to Newgrounds as a whole.
Bless this flas-... submission!
I'm glad you were able to find this movie, and that it had an impact on you. Yeah, previous years have been a bit shit, but Newgrounds seems to be on a slow but steady rise.
I really tried to cram as many nods and references to the "golden ages" of Newgrounds, so I'm glad those were noticed. And yes, what would a Newgrounds tribute be without a good cock joke? ;3
I'm glad this put a smile on your face. Seeing that people still find this and review it always puts a smile on MY face ;3
And yeah, had to get Tom to cameo in some way. It just wouldn't have been complete without it.
Thanks for the review!
Wow... This just sort of has a campy charm to it. One of my favorites of all times on Newgrounds!
Whoa, one of your all time favorites? Thanks!
This is my absolute favorite Pico Day animation, without a doubt.
Out of almost hundreds of animations from the past nine years of Pico Day (time really does fly when you have fun).
It's so hopeful and dreaming, yet it reminds everyone what the website needs to improve on.
It doesn't just convey the message that Golden Age Newgrounds was better, which I already agree with.
It conveys the message "Yeah, the Golden Age of Newgrounds was stellar and full of fantastic stuff. But that doesn't mean you should undermine the new guys. Give them a chance. Let them grow and develop. We might just have our next golden age with these folks."
The parodies are the most shameless way to get views on here and it doesn't encourage original content. Half the time they're recycled jokes we've heard the past 50 times from an Egoraptor animation and everyone thought it'd be best to recycle them instead of making new jokes, so I completely agree with everyone else here.
But, to be perfectly honest, I don't think everything started crashing down in 2013. It started in 2012.
Think about it; Edd Gould's death left everyone on the site shocked and in mourning, the KONY 2012 shit, and the memes. The horrible, horrible memes. It was a bad year for the internet in general, and that included Newgrounds. Things have gotten better in 2015, but we've got a bit to go before it gets REALLY good.
All that aside, this is an excellent, EXCELLENT tribute to Pico, and Newgrounds as a whole. You've heard this loads of times, but I find it even better that you got Tom Fulp to voice in this.
And yes, I want Frogman to tap feet with the finest characters of Newgrounds.
I feel so bad for not being able to respond to this review immediately. It's great that you found this and decided to review it.
Thank you for the great review, and I'm glad you were able to see and agree with the message. I really did put a lot of time and thought into this and I'm glad it shows and people can appreciate it. The fact that you would consider this your absolute favorite Pico Day animation really means a lot to me. And yeah, hopefully one day FrogMan will be among the Newgrounds greats ;3
And yeah, the stuff definitely started before 2013. 2012 does seem like a meme-filled year now that i think about it, heh.
I agree with everything you've had to say and I'm still amazed that this is still getting reviews. And yeah, I just HAD to get Tom Fulp to have a cameo in this. It wouldn't be my ultimate tribute to Newgrounds without it ;3
Again, thank you for the wonderful review!
nice movie i would have to say plus i think if you work hard enough frogman could be a famous newgrounds character too!
Thanks! Yeah, only way he'll become famous is if I keep making stuff with him in it. Which I plan to ;3
