This is the first episode of my latest series about two stupid street mascots for a struggling sub sandwich shop. There are more episodes coming soon. Apart from coloring the backgrounds in Photoshop, all the visuals were done in Flash.

Ha, that was great! I really like the characters, though I probably already said that for the most recent one. I enjoyed both Sublo and Tangy Mustard's customer-attracting techniques. The voice acting was good, and I especially loved the boss. His accent is so over-the-top and I loved that segment where he was yelling at them with detailed character animation. I agree with @Xuvero, it does feel very chill with the joke delivery. For instance, when mr. DICK rolled over the counter, it was a thing you could easily miss, but it was a little treat for those paying attention.That ending was great and I loved how you set up Tangy Mustard forgetting the names for the payoff of him saying "I know". That line was delivered very well, too. The ending where everyone started laughing was just beautiful too. That commercia was funny too, with Sublo being such a gross weirdo and the cheesy way the sandwiches solve everything. I love how the costumes look nothing like the commercial. The animation isn't the most fluid, but it really doesn't need to be.

Thanks for the in-depth review! I agree, the animation in the first couple of episodes is pretty clumsy compared to later on. I was trying to keep it very minimal and loose so I could animate them faster, but in the end I wasn't really happy with the results so I started putting more effort in around episode 3 and 4. Visuals aside, glad you seem to have liked the rest of this episode though! I think Mr. Wubhamer is a polarizing character because he's so over-the-top and doesn't really fit with the more naturalistic other characters, but I have a lot of fun voicing and animating him!

This is really funny, love it. Keep up the good work!

LOL!😅 Amazing!

"Who's the boss here? Oh, it's Mr DICK Wubhamer, with a capital DICK"

So I decided to review all of these, expect to recieve 11 notifications, sir!

I like how this one starts very suddenly, with the comercial playing. I remember that the first time I watched I got like: "What? This doesn't look like the brochure". I enjoyed seeing Tangy Mustard getting the names wrong all the time as well.

For me, the high point is when they try to atract the costumers, specially the "At SubPar you can bring your own sandwich, we don't care". And it's interesting how it is delivered, there's nothing flashing it out, it's just one line in the middle of the others, even though it is a very funny one. Guess this is one thing I like about this series, the best jokes are delivered without anything to put them on a pedestal for being "a funny line", they are just there, and the only thing that will make you laugh is how funny they actually are. (There is a lesson to be learned there, people, in case you're a writer).

On this episode we also get introduced to Wubhamer's weird way of talking. I have no idea why he does that, but it is funny as hell. Also really liked how it ended with a bad pun and everyone laughing out loud together at the end, good old ironic humour.

Wow thanks Xuvero for doing these in-depth reviews! I really enjoy reading them and it actually helps me notice things I didn't even consciously think about at the time, like how in episode 2 the characters' different personalities are demonstrated. I'm glad you like Wubhamer's dialogue, it's a lot of fun to write and act. My big "secret" with Mr. Wubhamer is that his way of talking is inspired by Jackie Gleason in the movie Smokey and the Bandit.

You know, I kept putting off watching this. Everytime I came to newgrounds I was like, "There's that faggot ass parrot and blue guy cartoon again." I thought it looked terrible from the thumbnail. But now that I've watched it, it holds up pretty damn well. Brings a whole new meaning to 'Don't judge a book by its cover.'

Sorry to hear you were so put off by the designs at first but I'm glad you ended up liking it. Part of the joke is that they're supposed to be embarassing stupid-looking costumes, but I see now how that would also deter people from watching it!
