a great story from the chronicle of the LL: ''The Hunt for the Key of Glorton''.
i like how the characters are all nicely drawn and with good linework, i love how some characters behave in a random way (such as when AMPM pops in to say ''hello guys, whats up!''), i loved it when zteagh-lock talks japanese to pumpkin and calls him a sugoi (so kawaii!!), while trash lock's punchline when he says ''OK, but does anyone know why we have female voices?'', which adds a new twist to the whole action movie, and inserts some much needed humour, in an otherwise serious movie.

i also like how the legendary clock-hero (BB10-clock) was portrayed in the film, showing him helping all the locks to achieve a fragile peace between the CC and the GG, which would help them further into exploring the caves of ulcar, in order to find more clues about the location of the key of glorton.

furthermore, i really liked how the boom-microphone was visible during the last moments of the movie, making fun of the movie itself, and making it look like a home-made video story, it was really funny+clever!

lastly, i think that pumpkin's pessimism about the LL's state was a bit unfounded, because the LL is still in great shape, and its in a much better state than what it was during the ''dead period'' of 2014-2017...
things are looking up, and the LL will rise again.

all in all, it was a funny, pleasant, and wild movie, and i liked it alot.
keep up the good work, pumpkin!

Thank you so much, chris-the-stick2!

I aimed to make this movie - the hunt for the key of Glorton - like the Goonies movie. They all already know each other, just like in the movie E.T. but one thing (the reunion) sets them off to an epic quest.

BB10 was an idea I got when I reviewed a facebook post about the writing of this movie. As everyone knows, the tension between the Lock Legion, the Clock Crew and the Glock Group is as high as the mariana trench nowadays. I didn't think anyone would catch the bit about the Glock Group, when Trash Lock was talking about the female voices but the subtitle said something about a fishing trip. That is an incredible amount of trivia you, as a viewer, caught on to, since the main goal of the Glock Group was and has always been to go on a fishing trip.

The boom mic was a necessity. Without that, the entire movie would have looked stupid. But that boom mic inspired the characters to pick up their act and really pull through, eventually capturing the key of Glorton (despite that story being implied and off screen, but watching this movie, you will definitely know how that adventure would have gone and their struggles and friendship trials, that lead to the capturing of the key).

I do agree that the pessimism of Pumpkin Lock was unfounded. I thought so, too, but I was already 8 months into production of this film when I noticed that. Instead of re-shooting it all (which would have taken at least 2 months), I hoped that the audience wouldn't notice that. Sadly, you did though, and I admit of being lazy for the sake of bringing this film out sooner, rather than reshooting major parts of that. I am sorry. But I am still very thankful for the 10 out of 10 review! I will not make this mistake again.

Thank you for your kind words! I hope you're looking forward to my upcoming film "Pumpkin and Robot are looking for treasures on Mars". It will be a feature film, at one hour and 22 minutes, and it will be awesome. Paramount Pictures granted me 22 million Dollars for production value, so I am sure it will be a bit better than this movie!

It will release in Summer of 2025!

Bad artwork and terrible subtitles. They say "does anyone know why we have female voices?" when the subtitles said "does anyone want to go on a fishing trip?". You do not have to use Google translate, you know that?

It is a parody, so there are some points.

Psi43 responds:

Yeah it's weird how the quality of this cartoon got worse and worse, with wrong subtitles and a boom mic in the shot, just before the punchline about quality having gone to shit.

Really weird, how that works. Really, really weird.
