Time taken to make: 1-2 hours
Release Date: November 19, 2005
[All ages]

Blobbles makes blueberry pie.

(Episode 2 is everyone's favorite, although I kinda wish it wasn't. Someone in the Newgrounds reviews pointed out that this episode bears similarities to a Flash movie called A Midnight Snack that had been released one week before, which I had, in fact, seen, and I accidentally half-stole some jokes from it.)



Blobbles: Episode 3
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 20 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: November 20, 2005
[All ages]

Blobbles makes toast.

(I don't have anything to say about this one. The punchline is a bit weak? I'unno.)

Runtime: 20 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: November 21, 2005
[All ages]

Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 20 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: November 22, 2005
[All ages]

Blobbles goes to the movie theater.

(I hate this one. If you asked me why, I wouldn't have an answer, but it just makes me cringe when I watch it.)



Blobbles: Episode 6
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 20 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: November 28, 2005
[All ages]

The last Blobbles short. Blobbles tries to turn on a light.

Details



Palm Tree
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 4 seconds
Time taken to make: 30 minutes
Release Date: January 16, 2005
[All ages]

This was completely made up on the spot. My stream of consciousness served me well that day.



Palm Tree 2
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 4 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour 15 minutes
Release Date: July 9, 2005
[All ages]

The twig-sized sequel to Palm Tree.

Details



Smooth-Moving Stick Fight
Genre: Action
Runtime: 24 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: May 23, 2005
[All ages]

When you combine stickfigures, The Matrix, Star Wars, crap, and faulty control buttons, you get this. I just wanted to see how well I could animate at a frame rate higher than 12 frames per second. I like "The End".



Smooth-Moving Stick Fight 2
Genre: Action
Runtime: 17 seconds
Time taken to make: 45 minutes
Release Date: May 23, 2005
[All ages]

Since this contains the same "The End" sequence as the first Smooth-Moving Stick Fight, there's only about 10 seconds of new content here, but at least there aren't any terrible movie control buttons this time.



Falling
Genre: Random
Runtime: 6 seconds
Time taken to make: 20 minutes
Release Date: May 24, 2005
[All ages]

I seem to recall this short being animated between fits of laughter.



Blue-ish Ghost-ish Fighter
Genre: Random/Action
Runtime: 45 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 day
Release Date: March 26, 2005
[All ages]

This animation is very clearly inspired by Xiao Xiao 3, except with more wackiness and stupidity. There's Super Mario Land music because that's all I had at the time.


Blue-ish Ghost-ish Fighter 2
Genre: Random/Action
Runtime: 40 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 day
Release Date: February 24, 2007
[All ages]

Roughly two years after the first Blue-ish Ghost-ish Fighter, I was in the mood to make a totally nonsensical, meaningless, so-bad-it's-funny chunk of stupid. That chunk of stupid was this sequel.



Cartoony Stick Toon
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 45 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 day
Release Date: March 24, 2005
[All ages]

Cartoony Stick Toon is very reminiscent of Looney Tunes, and it's one of my personal favorite animations that I made back in 2004-2005, mostly because the concept is simple and easy enough to relate to.



The Lemming Fight
Genre: Action
Runtime: 36 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 day
Release Date: April 2005
[All ages]

This is exactly what the name implies. The Lemmings are the lemmings from Lemmings.

Details



Sound Test
Genre: Experimental/Random
Runtime: 30 seconds
Time taken to make: 3-4 hours
Release Date: March 23, 2005
[All ages]

I'd never done much in the way of using sound effects before this little animation, so I decided to arbitrarily play around with all the sounds I had.

Details



Super Mario Movie
Genre: Action/Comedy/Parody
Runtime: 6 minutes 51 seconds
Time taken to make: 1-2 weeks
Release Date: January 28-March 1, 2005
[All ages]

This movie was originally made in four separate parts, which I later combined into one Flash.

Details



Mario Olympics
Genre: Comedy/Parody
Runtime: 26 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: February 4, 2005
[All ages]

My first try at a sprite movie. It failed miserably.



Super Mario Snooze
Genre: Comedy/Parody
Runtime: 11 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: January 27, 2005
[All ages]

I think this was super-loosely based on a scene from Mario Twins.



Mario and the Annoying Bowser
Genre: Comedy/Parody
Runtime: 50 seconds
Time taken to make: 2 hours
Release Date: January 26, 2005
[All ages]

This Flash is a perfect example of the kind of humor I died laughing at in elementary school, and the kind of humor I find reasonably funny today when presented correctly. I want to know what inspired this movie exactly, because aside from Super Mario Bros., I don't remember.



Mario Vs. Bad Luck
Genre: Comedy/Parody
Runtime: 26 seconds
Time taken to make: 45 minutes
Release Date: January 22, 2005
[All ages]

The title says all. I have nothing to add to this, except pancakes.



Mario Vs. Worse Luck
Genre: Random/Comedy/Parody
Runtime: 1 minute 3 seconds
Time taken to make: 45 minutes
Release Date: January 22, 2005
[All ages]

The title doesn't say all. Two-thirds of this movie is its credits. Non-sequitur joke credits are fun. Waffles.



Individual Stick Fights
Genre: Action
Runtime: 20 seconds
Time taken to make: 1-2 days
Release Date: March 2005
[All ages]

More nonsensical stickfigure stick fight shenanigans.



Stick Shorts
Genre: Random/Skits
Runtime: 38 seconds
Time taken to make: 1-2 days
Release Date: March 8, 2005
[All ages]

I don't remember what was going through my mind when I made this, if anything was going through my mind at all, which I doubt, considering the extreme lack of creativity in the title.



Sticks: The Movie
Genre: Action
Runtime: 9 minutes
Time taken to make: 1 month
Release Date: February 7-March 21, 2005
[All ages]

Originally, this was four separate Flash movies, but I compiled them into one file back in 2006, which is why this movie has such a long runtime and still contains some apparent spelling and grammar mistakes.

Details



Sticks: The Movie 3 Trailer
Genre: Action
Runtime: 42 seconds
Time taken to make: 2 days
Release Date: May 21, 2005
[All ages]

A trailer for a stick movie that will never be made. I was excited about having made something this detailed back in 2005.

Details



Cleanup on Aisle 5
Genre: Random
Runtime: 11 seconds
Time taken to make: 30 minutes
Release Date: January 15, 2005
[All ages]

Cleanup on Aisle 5, the first of three "Cleanup" movies, even though it was the last one to be put up on my site. Judging from the way this one starts, it's likely that this was going to be another stick fight at first, and then I got bored and turned it into this instead.



Cleanup on Aisle 4
Genre: Random
Runtime: 15 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: January 14, 2005
[All ages]

The second Cleanup movie, even though it's called "Cleanup on Aisle 4". I started with #5 first and then went backwards on the numbering scale for some reason.



Cleanup on Aisle 3
Genre: Random
Runtime: 12 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: January 13, 2005
[All ages]

The third and final Cleanup movie in the series, if you can call it a series. It's the least cleaned-up and most random of the bunch.



A Dummy Making Movies
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 25 seconds
Time taken to make: 4-5 hours
Release Date: January 22, 2005
[All ages]

The sequel to "A Dummy at the Movies", except not because there's almost nothing similar about them. I made this as a test to see if I could make scenes fade in and out by changing their shades of color, not realizing there were much easier ways of doing that.



A Dummy at the Movies
Genre: Random/Comedy
Runtime: 17 seconds
Time taken to make: 2 hours
Release Date: January 22, 2005
[All ages]

The most important part of this animation is the end of it.

Details



Paper Events
Genre: Random
Runtime: 1 minute 20 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 day
Release Date: February 6, 2005
[All ages]

To be blunt, this is an insubstantial, simplified ripoff of a classic Flash movie called Paper Wars. I always see elements of other artists' work that I admire and then attempt to implement into my own work, but I used to be much less subtle about it. I can't say I didn't learn new animation techniques by making this, though.



Golf Outtakes
Genre: Comedy/Skits
Runtime: 1 minute 48 seconds
Time taken to make: 2-3 days
Release Date: January 18, 2005
[All ages]

After a while, I started having Looney Tunes-inspired ideas for my movies, and Golf Outtakes was one of them. The presentation could be better, but there are quite a few fun little gags in this one, and I consider it one of my better works from 2004-2005.



Sticky and the Other Missile Launcher
Genre: Random
Runtime: 27 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 day
Release Date: January 21, 2005
[All ages]

The not-particularly-exciting sequel to an animation that no longer exists!

Details



Inactive Bear
Genre: Random
Runtime: 5 seconds
Time taken to make: 10 minute
Release Date: January 20, 2005
[All ages]

"Inactive Bear" is an astonishingly apt title for this movie.

It would have also been an astonishly apt name for me while I was making it.



Raft Cave Tour
Genre: Random
Runtime: 42 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: January 24, 2005
[All ages]

Pretty sure this animation was based on a dream I had the night before I made it.

Details



Escaping Cookie - Vol. 1
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 9 seconds
Time taken to make: 1 hour
Release Date: January 21, 2005
[All ages]

A comical folly with unnecessarily choppy slow-mo effects. I believe this one was completely improvized.



Escaping Cookie - Vol. 2
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 7 seconds
Time taken to make: 30 minutes
Release Date: January 17, 2005
[All ages]

The equally comical alternate ending of Escaping Cookie - Vol. 1.

Details



A Runner's First Experience
Genre: Random
Runtime: 16 seconds
Time taken to make: 1-2 hours
Release Date: January 24, 2005
[All ages]

The first shot with the line-shadows was the whole reason I made this, and that might be apparent, since the rest of the animation looks pretty lazy, especially on the shot inside the pipe when the running guy looks like he's doing a dance. That shot is so bad it's hilarious.



Something Was Calling My Name
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 9 seconds
Time taken to make: 45 minutes
Release Date: January 16, 2005
[All ages]

I came up with the title first, and the animation was centered around it. That's why the title is the setup for the movie's punchline, rather than a concise summary of the movie's contents, like all my other old works. I've always cringed a little on the inside at how cheesy this title is, but it couldn't be helped.



Stick Reloaded
Genre: Action/Parody
Runtime: 24 seconds
Time taken to make: 1-2 days
Release Date: January 20, 2005
[All ages]

Stickfigures fighting, it's like the Matrix, and that's about it.
Details



"Sticks" Re-Reloaded
Genre: Action/Parody
Runtime: 34 seconds
Time taken to make: 2-3 hours
Release Date: January 20, 2005
[All ages]

"Stickfigures" fighting, and it's not much like the Matrix.

Details



3D Building
Genre: Random
Runtime: 18 seconds
Time taken to make: 2 days
Release Date: March 11, 2005
[All ages]

I wanted to see how well I could create the illusion of 3D movement with a bunch of 2D lines. It sorta worked?



Sticks - The Game
Genre: Random
Runtime: 16 seconds
Time taken to make: 1-2 hours
Release Date: January 11, 2005
[All ages]

A Super Mario fan at heart, I wanted to make a Mario-style game with stickfigures, and since I knew nothing about how to make games, making a movie was the next best thing in my mind.



Sticks - The Game (The Lost Level)
Genre: Random
Runtime: 7 seconds
Time taken to make: 30 minutes
Release Date: January 11, 2005
[All ages]

The sequel to Sticks - The Game, probably made with Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels in mind.



Stick Wars
Genre: Action
Runtime: 30 seconds
Time taken to make: 4 hours
Release Date: January 12, 2005
[All ages]

Generic poorly-drawn stickman battle. Making something a whole 30 seconds long was a big deal for me at the time.

Details



The Corridor of Graceful Walking
Genre: Random/Comedy
Runtime: 2 seconds
Time taken to make: 30 minutes
Release Date: January 15, 2005
[All ages]

This one started out as a test to make a 3D effect and ended up as the shining pinnacle of stupidity.



Sticks - The Brawn Brawl
Genre: Action
Runtime: 12 seconds
Time taken to make: 2 hours
Release Date: January 11, 2005
[All ages]

Stickfigure fights were my favorite genre of Flash animation to watch when I started out, possibly because they were simple animations that I felt were potentially 'within my reach', and this was the first of many stick fights I made on my own.



Sticks - The Brawn Brawl B
Genre: Random
Runtime: 1 second
Time taken to make: 10 minutes
Release Date: January 11, 2005
[All ages]

lol



Sticks of Greetings
Genre: Random/Action
Runtime: 9 seconds
Time taken to make: 30 minutes
Release Date: January 21, 2005
[All ages]

This is the first Flash movie I ever made.
