cheesy, but oh so poignant
Very true observation about how much something designed to make money and entertain, in whatever order, could actually leave a person with no marketable skills. I must point out that the dialogue did come across as preachy, but this didn't detract from your message very much. Not a huge fan of your choice for the musical score...
Let me also take the time to state that I have no idea how to make a flash cartoon, or even compose a coherent piece of art that doesn't absolutely confound people, provoking such comments like, "wow, that's so weird", or "why does that bird have a demonic head? Are you a satanist?", or my favorite "thats really cool man. Can you draw me a landscape?"
With all that being said, this cartoon stirs up a lot of feelings within me. Nice job.
