@01:07The narrator was one of the teachers and my school, and the voice of Sue is a friend from school. She's the same girl who did all of the hot chicks at the end of *Coelasquid's film. She's really talented!

About 8 months from conception to final clean coloured animation and sound. I could probably do it a lot faster now.

@01:41If one mixed Dr. Seuss and the Powerpuff Girls, and seasoned the concoction with my childhood,one might get something like this.
Absolutely adorable. I really hope you DO get a job with CN.

@01:41One of the reasons this piece caught my attention is the flawlessly rhyming narration and dialog. The entire flick reminded me of Dr. Seuss. The animation is bright and flows along well. It is a fun film to watch and teaches a nice lesson.

@01:41The animation was hand-drawn, then prepared in Photoshop and coloured in Flipbook. The backgrounds were done in Illustrator.

Thanks for the comment!

No problem. Hope you get that job on cartoon network you want. :D

@01:41No, that was Flipbook, but then I had to composit everything in After Effects. You can do it in Flipbook, but After Effects is much more reliable.

@01:41that's incredible. did you do that traditionally? all by yourself? jeezalaheck, it looks like something right off of cartoon network. but cartoon network back when it was good. professional, I mean. seriously awesome. and also adorable.

I'll shut up now. :)

Oh wow, thanks! Yes it was done traditionally although the backgrounds and colouring were of course done digitally. I really love the old Cartoon Network stuff, and some of the new stuff is still pretty awesome, but it makes me glad to have my work positively compared to it. :dance:

It's Flash, isn't it? I love how smooth it looks. And the nod to Dr. Seuss. Also it's kinda like a story of my life... sans a giant fish monster. XD

Nope, it's not flash. It's hand drawn on paper. The only thing that was done in flash was the lip sync near the end.

wow, that comment was supposed to be posted on a completely different animation, one completely not by you, i can't understand why da just dropped that in there. That or i was completely gone.

Your piece is wonderful, and the animation is great. (i was trying to hint to whoever i tried to post to that a slideshow isn't an animation lol) Your sense of timing is really nice, and the whole enviornment works really nicely, they characters fit very well into their world. And that fish was amazing.

great little bit. sorry for the confusion.

I really like this, it has the right amount of oddness that is appealing. The way that everything flows with the narration is nice, and I thought how Sue interupts the narrator was clever. All and all I really liked the lighthearted atmosphere you get from the colourful animation, the great music, and the suessical narriation. Hope you go on to do more great animations!.................oh and the part about the kid eating clown makes me laugh every time I watch it....
