NEW CARTOON - Attic Junk starring Mitchell & Webb

Hai Guize!

I animated a sketch for the BBC starring British comedians Mitchell and Webb and written by some guy who isn't me. You can view it here. As you can see, it's out of sync and over compressed, just the way I like video captures of animations which take me weeks to make. Mmmhmmm.

The overall reaction to this hasn't been good at all and I can see why. I'm not animating someone else's script and performance again because I totally don't enjoy it and my heart wasn't in this at all...I'll return to writing and voice my own comedy from now on.

Philly/Baltimore meetup was amazingly fun, thanks to everyone for being so fucking classy as usual. I'm back in UK now working on more stuff for work but I really hope to have something up here on Newgrounds soon. Don't you forget about me...don't, don't, don't, don't.

Love you all

I'm glad you didn't put your heart into this without the animation the joke wouldn't even be remotely funny hope to see more great stuff

Yeah, Mitchell & Webb can really be hit and miss at times. No fault of your own, nice slick animation as always, but yeah... Tell the beeb you don't take no guff no more! It's either sketches for Horne & Corden or nothing!

It's no wonder you weren't enthusiastic. Not even your talents could shine through such bland material. I hope experiences like these make your own projects more satisfying to work on.

Just don't get me started on The Ricky Gervais Show. Seriously, don't.

Yeah, if I had seen that toon before this post, to tell the truth I'dve never guessed it was yours. Independent cartoons ftw, as always.

I, for a change, think it was awesome!
Where did you get voices for the oracles? Those sounds were amazing!

I chuckled. Weird how good art can overpower bad writing.

Great to hear that you'll be sticking to your own stuff from now. Like it was said before, without your animation in it, it would not have been funny at all. Good luck with you new stuff.

i'll be glad too see more of your dark and warped humour :D,non of this 12a balls :P the voicework for the sketch wasnt bad but the joke wasnt funny so like i said i want your stuff not the beeb's.

Nah don't sell yourself short, still had your flare to it.

Your animation was the best part of that by far. Just consider it a learning experience and make sure to either do your own stuff or work with funnier people in the future.

Nice job

The humor in this didn't appeal to me at all..
Your shit on the other hand is the bomb! :)

I can't think why the BBC would have got this Chris Reddy guy to write it. Both Mitchell and Webb's writing and your own are much stronger than that, and if it's being done as an animation why not write a script which utilises it? Why, through the magical power of animation, your story can be set in places film can only dream of. Like Devon, but in the future!

It's a shame this wasn't too grand. I agree totally with MasterAardvark about the writing. I've only seen a couple of their skits, but I love Peep Show (one of the best random buys I've ever made, now if only BBCA would show it), so this was an extra shame. Looking forward to your next piece, though.

Wow...I love how they tucked your little animation credit right at the bottom of the list. What did those two producers and two executive producers do that was so important they deserve credits?

I hope they paid you well at least because that cartoon sure isn't getting your name out.

I thought it was funny though. Not the same style of humor you normally do but really good work anyways.


ZerphaZerpha

2010-06-08 10:07:40

Aside from the last phrase at the end this was not really funny imo.
The other two clips you've done for BBC that used your own script were far better.

2010-06-11 16:20:36

I know you said you didn't enjoy it but youv'e done a really good job of it, and to have it voiced by peep shows finest is something else. Well it would be if I had done it, but i'm not sure where you are on the fame scale due to my general ignornace.

It's okay to do some animation for some money once in a while!

Is it bad that i found that Mitchell and Webb thing moderately funny?

You did a much better job with your Nicholas Cage caricature than you did with your Johnny Depp caricature.

It wasn't completely terrible. I did laugh at the specters in the beginning, and forcing the appraiser into them. That's it though. The only gag gets drawn out for the whole short. I love dry humor, but it needed something else. Not your style, sir. Hope you got some cash out of it, at the very least. I did watch the Guitar hero Beatles thing! That was priceless!! Can hardly wait for whatever you're cooking up next.

Harry you should know that people on 4chan have obsessively tried re-editing the part where the woman is dancing with the cake to make it look as though she is naked(no bra or pantys).Rofl its pitiful how many horny little kids are on 4chan.
