    Good god that’s surreal.

    Was it made under the influence of any mind-altering drugs? (Note: I consider such things to be, at the very least, not a bad thing.)

    Good to know that Burton cares about you Spoony.

    This was pretty good IMO. Liked the style, but the animation could have been a bit better.

    Am I going crazy, or does he use 3d animation at the very end, when he zooms in on your head?

    You could maybe take some simple photos of your room, to make it easier for people to recreate it ^^
    In this video it kinda looks like a… prison?

    That was awesome! You should ask if you can use part of it as an intro. It had so many aspects of your show, right down to you hating those frigging tabs they put on some game boxes and DVDs. But the Powerman 5000 thing with Dr. Insano was still the greatest non-Spoony video on here.

    I used to animate with Flash as well, and I can say this animation just made me cringe. By all means, it was not a bad animation at all, but it seemed so mechanical and lifeless. If anything, just take it slowly. And if you want to focus on the imagery, make it in like a slideshow format. If you want an animation, then really make it an animation. Half-waying it like that just doesn’t seem to work out.

    I guess this is directed towards the animator

  • SpitefulCrow

    Wasn’t the best animation I’ve ever seen but it’s a nice tribute. It’s got it’s own little style that goes nicely with the theme and that matches the background music really well. The end part was quite nice too, and you have to appreciate all the little references to the Spoony Experiment like the ‘Get To Da Choppa!’ shirt and Dizzy Gillespie. Enjoyable to watch.

    I for one liked it.

    It had its rough spots and it seemed a bit more stiff than Eric’s other works( which I also like), but overall I don’t think it was cringe-worthy, and you have to give him credit for all the in-jokes he was able to put in, which show he’s probably a dedicated fan.

  • ericpowerup

    Oh hey everyone,
    I wanted to clear things up on the making of this video. I agree that the animation is a bit stiff, which is due to the fact I put it together in 4 days from concept to creation. It wasn’t meant to be on par with my professional animation work (day job), just a fun little video…. plus i couldn’t resist making a animated Spoony to torment! Kind of like that Bugs and Daffy cartoon… think of it as a “screwing with spoony” kind of thing. cheers!

    That’s was rather surreal; the concise length was well chosen, I don’t know if I would have survived or enjoyed something very much longer.

    Theremin and baritone saxophone is a combination that I now recognize as wonderful, but tragically rare.

    I just didn’t liked it…
    The joke about the loading time wasted is very old… And poorly done.
    I barely could keep my interest…
    The part when spoony transforms into a medusa… I don’t know…
    The music… With better syncronization, it could have worked out very well… But in this kind of animation, if you miss the moment by half a second, the joke is ruined.

    Ah ha! So THAT’S where Dr. Insano came from.

    On another note, even if you didn’t care for the animation it’s cool that Spoony was honored in some way.

    Oh, and at least we know he wasn’t trying to play FF8. If a disc read error came up for that came, he’d probably exclaim, “Good! Now I don’t have to play this piece of shit!”

    As for the video I really liked the music, had a very nice feel to it, that really went with the video, giving it a more comedic feel, which I suppose is what they were going for.
