What an impressive collaborative effort between many great Garfield fan animators! I feel like now, the pinnacle of Garfield Fan animations has been reached, since I find it unlikely this behemoth of a project will eventually be surpassed in quality. The animations were nothing that I have seen before; truly, you guys have mastered the art of avant-garde and experimental animation. And glad that Jim strips were interpreted in such a way that truly reflected the mastery of his rhetoric. From the impending death of favorite feline, to being unable to control your unsatisfiable stomach, these moments will forever be cherished my me in the future, and will eventually bring the same amount of joy when I watch this in the future for nostalgic reasons. This truly is the greatest Garfield flash animation collab. I have seen everything, and all of my questions about life have been answered. Thank you, TooMuchSpareTime, and your talented team of animators.
Glad to see all of our hard work has paid off! All that development hell was a nightmare, but if it weren't for all of our amazing staff, then this would've been just another immature flash collab with crude animations and low-brow humor. Great job, guys! This might just be our best volume yet!
Nice job, Oney.
Hey, not bad!
This was pretty darn amazing for a first contribution to a website, and I'm impressed. The frame by frame animation was fluid for the most part, the art style (especially the backgrounds) looked really nice, and you chose a good song to animate this with. But one issue I do have is with the pacing of the animation during the begining and the ending. You should've shown the main character sleeping for a few more seconds before having the bus pass by, and also with her missing the bus the second time before she gave up. Also, sound effects wouldn't hurt.
I thought so too, but at the same time I was a bit afraid of people just seeing the sleeping animation and getting bored. Guess I shouldn't have been concerned about that.
As for sound effects, I've been looking for SFX I could use, I just haven't had much luck. I'll keep searching so that the next episode can have more SFX, though.
Please come up with your own jokes.
Well, I'll admit, the animation wasn't bad. It wasn't the most impressive animation I've ever seen, but it did get the job done. However, I did have an issue that I did think many people have brought up before. You didn't make any jokes specifically to Pokemon. In fact, you just took random pop-culture jokes and animated over them with pokemon characters. Not only do these jokes become stale, but it doesn't show your ability to make creative and exciting flashes. You're just repeating the same joke we've heard countless times before. Instead of doing that, why don't we just, oh I don't know, actually try making fun of the ridiculous moments of the Pokemon franchise? It's not like Pokemon isn't unable to be parodied. (Which is a huge lie. There's plenty to make fun of with that series.)
So in short, decent animation, but unoriginal humor.
My, this was fun!
The fact that you were able to bring all this up in 24 hours really impresses me. You guys clearly know how to use flash to it's full potential in terms of animation, and I really wish I could do stuff like that now. Although I did feel like there were too many "sequels" in terms of shorts (Like some of them started where the other one left off), this was still enjoyable to watch, and I especially liked the parts with the Toast and the Cloud.
Also, mind if you release the music for number 8?
Can't really say I found this enjoyable. This whole thing felt really sub-par in terms in humor, and a lot of the jokes didn't really seem to make fun of the Kirby franchise. A lot of the jokes could've been used for about pretty much any franchise. (For example, the Sword short could've also been used to make fun of Zelda or King Arthur, and don't even get me started on the Cook short) I will admit, though, some of the skits did have animation that was kinda nice (especially the Ninja short), but it's also not really the best I've seen either. I will agree that it was an improvement over the first collab, though.
Fair enough. Thanks for the review.
Nice to hear another song with Fernando in it! Animation was pretty nice as well, especially considering the other projects you were involved in. (like the Weebl stuff and the other shorts you've been pulling out lately) One concern I do have is that Gooseman's vocals didn't really seem to feel natural, which made the song feel a little off, IMO. But still, nice job!
Entertaining to watch
I honestly don't find this submission that bad, to be honest with you. A lot of effort was clearly put into this, and it shows. The frame by frame is amazing, and the way the ponies were drawn was pretty neat. Although I don't really like anime that much, you did choose a good song to animate Derpy with. So really, you deserve a pat on the back.
I honestly think that this submission deserves more recognition that most of the other videos here at Newgrounds. The story is clever, well written, and VERY entertaining, and the jokes in the movie were really quite hilarious. And the animation is one of the best uses of tweening I've ever seen! (It really does look nice when it's used properly) And the acting was quite nice as well. In fact, the police interrogator sounded a lot like Mike Pollock. So nice job!
