You can watch me work on PART 2 on https://youtube.com/c/totallygoodatgames/live !

Part 1 is here! A lot of effort was put into this project from its small team. But due to the time constraints of the Animation Summer Jam deadline, this cartoon had to be split into two parts. Part 2 will come out soon!

The ending wasn't very satisfying, but otherwise a fun watch! The animation is nice and I like the voice acting. Dough Boy's cute responses were...well...cute. I really liked dad and his talk of obedience and his insistence on Dough Boy staying away from the basement. The fact that he's wearing pink slippers just makes it infinitely better. I feel like you didn't need to have both the scream and him getting ready for the run before he starts running down the stairs. It takes away from the momentum.
Overall, it was fun, but way too short. I hope we get to see part 2 soon.

I love the voice acting!!

Charlie and Matt did a fantastic job with the voices! GO CHECK EM OUT!!

Yeah I know that feeling! lol

This was pretty amusing and kind of adorable!

ade-syndicate responds:

Thank you! Part 2 is in the process of being made!

that dad run was real scary thing.

ade-syndicate responds:


The animation was smooth at some parts (such as close up scenes) and choppy in some places which made it work. It's nice to see some over the top cartoon animation (such as the kid running down into the basement and slamming the door behind him). I like how the parent was cropped off and you can't see what he looks like. Some animations can pull it off, this was one of them.

ade-syndicate responds:

Some areas of the cartoon are choppy because the deadline was fast approaching and it needed to be done, so corners were cut. I've been considering going back and fixing up the choppy parts for when Part 2 comes out. Might happen, might not!

Thank you for the compliments!
