Nice animation work with movement and stuff; I don't care too much for the pixellated :P face, but that's your artistic choice and I don't take off stars for that.
What I do think could use some improvement is the sound effects: some of them were really good (the explosions and such), but the *shawing* type sound effect got overused, and I was annoyed by it in the end. Perhaps some more variety would have been better.
Not an original idea, but it was put together fairly well.
Wow! Great singing!
You've got some nice voice talent on this animation! Next episode, I want to hear some absolutely ridiculous over-the-top falsetto! That's all I want for next Christmas :).
One thing detracted from my viewing experience: at some point in the first 2/3rds or so of the flash, the music got a little too repetitive for my tastes, so it was nice to have it changed up. But you've got some real talent; keep up the good work!
Third time's a charm
I felt like you could have introduced a third situation (possibly in between the two situations you had here), something to make Tickles seem even more innocuous, making the final death scene even more disturbingly hilarious (or hilariously disturbing, depending on whether your glass is half full or not). Perhaps you mean to disrupt our fairy tale story-telling sequence of one, two, three, and that's fine, too.
The animation was beautiful and smooth, so well done on that. The abrupt changes in mood are great ways to do humor.
great attention to detail
great series. i was a little confused at the end. was mario "himself" for a moment, because of what the ghost had made him do? i thought that could have been clearer. but great story otherwise. keep up the good work.
you had some great moments in there, for sure. i liked the title screen and the star replacement.
makes me sick.
Your parody was neither funny nor tasteful. And trust me, I like parodies. Good ones. All you showed was the meaninglessness of existence as you see it, and that doesn't take much effort. Anyone can slap a bunch of random things together to "prove" that point.
To be constructive, I should point out that a good parody uses as much of the original material as possible, just in a different way. And the (often-times) subtle difference is what makes it funny. There is no blood and guts in Spongebob Squarepants. It's a children's show. Personally, I don't know if there is much to be parodied in Spongebob; it practically parodies itself.
But take for example, a good parody such as Blockhead's Time Squad. There's a point in the second installment where the flash resembles the LOTR. And it's hilarious if you've seen the movie, because it's doing nearly the same dialogue and plot as in the movie, but in a different setting with different characters.
So, the next time you make a flash, do it when you have something to say. You have some good skills, but they need to be put to good use, okay?
i think part 2 is my favorite, with all the allusions to LOTR. but you've worked in so many quotes that allude to random movies, that it's great. "You haven't just saved the universe... you've saved me." Blockhead is my hero!
wow, very cute
that was amazingly cute. the voice acting was perfect. i was feeling two emotions simultaneously at the end: horror and cuteness, which is quite a feat to pull off.
This is one of my favorite blockheads...
Great poem, great story telling. There's something unresolved about the ending; you're not quite sure the force behind it all. But nonetheless very good.
