Season 2 is finally here! Stu-Boy and Piv-Boy are back in this season 2 opener. The duo come across a new friend with an extremely familiar face... Let me know what you guys think in the comments! Was it worth the wait?

It's hard to believe that Season 2 is already here. I started working on Season 2 January 19, 2014. It's taken that long. You guys are in for such a treat! I will however be taking a mid season break after Season 2 Episode 5 to take a break from all the uploading and polish up later episodes.

Holy Fucking shit.. That time shit there..

Really amazing and funny! xD I will watch everyone your videos! :D

Nice animation.

if i had one word to sum up the animation it would be "lacking". lacking in style, movement, easing, or anything that would provide a sense of appeal. the linework is exceptionally uninteresting and unappealing, being just black. most animators using flash do a lot to make their lines more unique, especially in a program that doesn't support any variety in brushes, but this simply looks like "flash lines".

there is little to no harmony with your colours, pretty much seems like a purposeless mix thrown together. the time machine, and numerous other objects/ backgrounds are flat and unimaginative.
character animation was unbelievably contained. often slackly skewing still drawings, tweening black pupils from side to side, reused mouths in lipsync, which can look alright, but in this case the mouths are just half circles and "o" shapes so it gets tired very fast.

from the circle eyes with eyelids that protrude from the bottom, extending hand gestures while talking, along with the house, I see repeated parallels with Family Guy paired with a pseudo tumblr "cute" rounded style that is not executed well.

the voice acting was underwhelming. words could be enunciated better, to be honest I don't think you or "Stu-Boy" thrive as voice actors. i don't fully understand this masturbatory need for animators to voice/ star in their own cartoons, especially by literally playing themselves. i didn't spot a single "joke" at any point in this cartoon. i think it's trying to be humorous at some points but it's really not working for me.

the few times there was frame by frame movement (58 seconds in, when PivBoy turns and points for example), it appears fluid, but often so brief and infrequent that I could blink and miss it. i'm sure that you are more skilled than these cartoons let on, it seems to me you're plagued by laziness and won't invest your maximum effort or time, which is the most fatal flaw in animation I can imagine and how you end up with the cartoon I just watched.

i know it's a goofy 3 minute cartoon about nothing, and not everybody takes animating seriously, which is fine. i'm writing this review not to be a disapproving asshole trying to stick it to you but to voice what i think to be valuable criticism that could help you see some of your shortcomings.

Sorry Tristy :c

this is cool. it's short and simple, and it's a good laugh. the humor's silly but not obnoxious, which is nice, and the art is expressive and adds to the jokes.

the only issue i can really think of is maybe you could have done more with the time-travelling montage bit, but i'm not sure exactly what. other than that, good work. i'm glad you've been able to keep this up for two seasons.

this is the first, maybe second, episode of this i've seen but if the rest are this good i'll catch up on these. keep up the good work :D
