C&H Winston the Worm Animatic

Share Collapse

This was the first short I ever worked on for Cyanide & Happiness, and for that reason it's very close and dear to my heart. This was originally done on January 4th, 2016.

Please support the official upload by clicking this link and seeing how the final product turned out!


A lot of the temp music used was from Invader Zim! My favorite gag that didn't make it to the final short was the family pictures changing to replace the dad with Winston, but honestly this short is dark enough as it is, lmao. I earnestly hope Winston makes a return appearance someday.

Not the best C&H but thats a tall order.

Phobotech responds:

I'd be interested to learn which C&H short is your favorite! There's also three whole seasons of content from the Cyanide & Happiness Show, with a fourth season on the way.

Some of the best adult humour in a show ever. i'd gladly take this over family guy.

Subscribe to ExplosmEntertainment on youtube for more Cyanide & Happiness if you liked this!

Oh boy, was that funny. You just have no idea where it will go. I knew it was from "Cyanide & Happiness". My question is why does it look like it's only half done? It just seems like storyboards. Well, better than nothing I suppose.

At first, I thought it was just a ripoff. I should have looked at the title! Probably too generic for me. Dang, is there a lot you can do with stick figures. It certainly works here.

Phobotech responds:

That's because this is the stage of development that I do! They are pretty much moving storyboards, yes.

I do pre-production animatics, which act like a blueprint for animation people to bring the rest to life. The finished product is linked in the description, and over the next few months, I'll be uploading more animatics that I worked on.
