I like the fact your using frame by frame animation here, please keep that up

Aside from art cleanup and maybe adding a few more inbetweens to smooth things out, the only thing that really nagged at me was the fade transitions, its a bit too slow and kills the pacing if you ask me. For something that looks like its trying to be a Hanna Barbara whacky comedy, fade transitions should only be used when transitioning the viewer either to a fake commercial break or signifying a significant portion of time being passed. If my memory serves, everything else in a HB cartoon was jump cuts

Keep it up man! Cheers :)

Update: I corrected the fade transitions by slowing down the still shots and looping some shots. Also, I made the bomb explosion more effective by replacing the not-so-effective smoke build-up with flashing colors. Lastly, at the end of the cartoon, I replaced the generic fade-to-black effect with a more cartoony iris-out effect, accompanied by the appropriate sound effect.

Thanks for the review and noticing the errors that I made. This cartoon was made way before I even got a computer with a touch screen. It was my attempt to mimic the scratchy and sketchy animation style of the cartoons made in the 1960's and 1970's. Also, my paper amount is extremely limited. Most importantly, the fade transitions that I did was my attempt to mimic the Road Runner cartoons. Maybe for my next cartoon, I'll try and push my visual style a bit further. Thank you for enjoying!
