Reviews for "Wonders of the Universe 1"

Great start you guys!

This story has so much character, and so many different aspects to explore... solid writing, and a nice and cohesive art design makes me think this is going to be a big hit!

Well Done

The animation was smooth and uniform, all camera movements were fluid and interesting, and the jokes were good. The "old film" style of the introduction was a nice touch. The cast of characters is already looking to be interesting. The voice acting was done well and no voices seemed to be "off", as at least one voice in most complex animations has a tendency to be. The protagonist even looks a bit like Gordon Freeman.

Toonwerks responds:

We wanted him to look like kind of a dork :P

Loved it

Loved the way you used motion tweening, loved the backgrounds and the movements of the characters. The style is simple and basic yet works perfectly for the animation.

What I however would want to point out that this episode lacks is that the pilot was way to much a pilot. Feels like it gives away what this is going to be about way too much. And I was a bit more excited to see what storylines the aliens had tbh. And what sucked is that the introduction is almost as long as the episode itself.

Also, I get it, the main human character (whatever his name was) is one of those cute sweet guys who falls in love with someone in the first episode. Feels like a Fry and Leela story, except without the raw jokes Futurama pull off.

Toonwerks responds:

Yes, we realized the risk of making it fully introductory. But a pilot is a pilot is a pilot. We've already decided that the second episode will be more lively and have some other shorts planned to head into that direction. Thanks for the review!
