The Viking Bunnies #1

Author Comments

Made this cartoon a year ago. Thought I'd toss it up here.

Wanted to do more, but got into making my game Retro Knight instead. I still have some scripts lying around.

All voices by my wife and I, except for King Bill.

Visit http://www.vikingbunnies.com and let me know if I should make more!

The world of The Wild Sea is divided, leaving the various animal tribes locked into what has become known as The Animal Kingdoms. The Pirate Pigs have conquered Bacon Bay. The Miner Moles live in Mount Molehill. The King Crabs and The Ninja Hamsters have staked claim to Tidewater Island and Woodshavings Island respectively. The Party Penguins have taken the frozen north and the Medieval Chickens have roosted in their own valley. Leave it to four Farm Bunnies to mess the whole thing up, cross into the other kingdoms, and stir up mischief.

Not wanting to simply be a boring Farm Bunny and work the land, a little bunny named Fuzzy conspired with his friends Steve and Lars to become something more. Fuzzy longed for treasures and to become a legend. Lars was a top-notch athlete and also found the farm life dull. Steve had eaten enough carrots and lettuce to bore him to death and he longed for more tasty snacks. Thankfully they all knew a very smart bunny named Thora who had also diverged from the Farm Bunny path for she longed to explore and learn all she could about science and the natural world. Realizing they had no desire to stay, the four of them built a boat and planned to leave their safe pasture, believing themselves to be destined for something more. Declaring himself captain despite Thora being the one who actually built what they now called The Bunny Ship, Fuzzy decided that the tile of Farm Bunnies was not going to work any longer.

Without taking a vote for he was now Captain Fuzzy, these four bunnies became The Viking Bunnies.

Together, Steve, Lars, Thora, and Captain Fuzzy set out for treasure, adventure, discoveries, and delicacies, each bunny seeking their own prize out on The Wild Sea. Hardly able to get along, yet each beneficial to the team in their own right, The Viking Bunnies quickly realized that not all the animals outside of their safe village were going to be friendly. Sure, The King Crabs were very friendly and The Miner Moles were a very peaceful race, but The Pirate Pigs and The Ninja Hamsters? Maybe The Viking Bunnies were not ready for all the adventures they would discover. Stirring up trouble wherever they went, it didn't take long for word of The Viking Bunnies to reach the ears of the lord of The Wild Sea, the wicked and ruthless King Hamondorf: Rules of The Pirate Pigs. The Viking Bunnies should probably keep both ears up and both eyes on the horizon.

Yet still seeking their treasures, their adventure, their discoveries, and their delicacies, The Viking Bunnies would still sail onward, ready for anything that might come their way as they sought to become something more: legends.

Pretty amazing work here

The art style is "DIFFERENT" and I can see you adding a little bit more shine and sparkle like on the coin scene maybe have sparly coins thats just a small idea on a mall point but an idea none the less, This is Entertainment, I look at a lot of movies and different stuff from the portal, and I must say this is by far the most fun and interesting of the day, and has a good start to it. This movie actually Suited me very well, and Earned a few brownie points in the process.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~

I hear ya. Details could be improved. It is a very "dialog driven" cartoon. Thanks for the review!

Great potential for the series. You'll get better with the jokes as time goes on and you get back into the sense of the thing. Who knows? It might get on well enough to earn a spot on Adult Swim. I hope there's more to come.

scpgames responds:

Thanks! I am getting motivated to do #2, which I wrote a long time ago. This first episode was more original humor. The rest of the episodes are parodies. Episode #2 is a Ghostbusters parody.

I think I would have to have way more crude humor to get on Adult Swim. I am aiming for laughs without diving into the toilet.

High quality animation, nice likable characters, good potential, but the constant 4th wall breaking while providing some stale jokes kills the immersion.

scpgames responds:

Maybe I'll dial it back in future episodes, but part of the goal of The Viking Bunnies is "to be famous on the internet". It will never be removed, but yeah... maybe a few less jokes about it. Thanks for the review!

A lot of joking around with the fourth wall here. :) Though I do appreciate the jokes that thing came up a bit too often IMO. The comedy otherwise is refreshingly harmless; good fun. Smooth animation, plenty of dialog... longer than I expected too, and especially for a pilot! Solid work. Wouldn't mind seeing more of this show.

scpgames responds:

Thanks! Great review too. My goal was really to make a 'friendly' version of Aqua Teen or Always Sunny. Somewhere in that realm of humor: snippy and snarky without dropping F bombs or sex jokes. I do have two more scripts done, but not much time as of late. The next one dives more into 'parody' as it is a Ghostbusters story.

I think you can do alot better than this it was not even that funny or funny at all to me sorry to say but the idea is really good please keep trying and break 4th wall alot less

scpgames responds:

YOU: "Please make this cartoon more like one I would like and do things I want to do."

ME: "No."
