It's the classic Charles Dickens story of Scrooge and his assistant as they make their way through the Christmas season.

So by giving to the poor we get back, and by being poor and giving to the poor you basically give to yourself, so the lesson this ghost of Christmas present is here to reach us about is... money laundering?

Definitely was a different take on that classic Carol! Good stuff, and nice work on that ambient character movement too, they never really stand still and just speak here.

May the season be very merry regardless of monetary donation pressure and possible conscience related seasonal mishaps! Happy Christmas!

Haha, yeah basically. Scrooge probably would be good for organized crime if he wasn't so damn one dimensional about it. Well, my version of Scrooge anyway.

Hope your holiday was a festive one. Cheers!

There is so much Rob rambling I'm not sure what the hell is going on, which is your style. Some of the animation looks great and some looks a little awkward. But you are figuring it out. Some of the effects look really good. Some backgrounds and angles too. I like the HOTM looking eyes on the ghost. Overall I like the style. Voices were really good. Tiny Tim was awesome. You just lost me in the rambling. I think you would do good with a series of reoccurring characters. People would know the characters and you could just get to the story points.

Rob loves his rambling. You have more fans than me so you obviously know what you're doing. I'd just love to see more story than rambling. That's just me. You do what you do. There's nothing wrong with it. These are just my opinions. Keep it up. You will only improve with each cartoon.

Not sure how you keep motivated. It is a struggle for me with anything I do. But I miss making cartoons. I just want to be finished with other peoples' projects and work on my own again. Looks like you are having fun. I envy you. Though you have to work at shit you don't want to as well you still make time for projects. Not me. It get too overwhelmed. Now I am rambling like one of Rob's cartoons. I'm out. Peace be with you.

Hey, I like the rambling. OBVIOUSLY, haha. It's all good. This one was definitely a rambler. And with my new style of animation, the lipsync wasn't a colossal chore! That was a surprise in itself. Usually that's the most annoying part, but I was able to blow through like 8 minutes of three characters' lipsync in the span of like three days. It was nuts.

Thanks for watching, man, I'm glad you dug it. It was a bit heavy in the dialog, but that's just how this script ended up. It was a nice challenge for myself, so I wouldn't expect every animation I do from now on to be that drenched in dialog. I mean, every now and then it will be I'm sure, but I like to mix it up. Or I'm gonna try to.

Peace, bro!

Good Work!!!
