@01:00Thank you sir!

There's a few things in here I'd really like to fix up, so I'll probably change the background values alone with other stuff. Thanks for pointing it out! I will demolish it.

When Beans can't be there for Christmas, he sends Noodle a pretty awesome gift. It doesn't go over so awesomely, though...



Merry Christmas, everyone! May I present, my first animated short. It was a long and grueling process, but I'm very happy with how this turned out. It's so exciting to have a finished piece, especially with a character I've been working on for so long now. I know the Star Wars Holiday Special jokes aren't for everyone, but I couldn't resist throwing them in.


I hope everyone enjoys mine and Noodles real animation debut!

Happy holidays and thanks for watching!

Noodles is named after the Guitarist from "The Offspring"

I love me some good punk tunes but I was never very big into The Offspring. Few great singles, but never enough to hold my interest too long.

"Noodle" is actually a random name my friend from college threw at me when I asked what my dog character should be called. Just kind of stuck after that.

OK
That's good to know
So you like Punk Rock too?
I was in a few bands myself
Playing Bass or Rhythm Guitar.
I'm trying to form another Punk Band called " Midnight Joyride"

Yea, I've been getting more into folk punk as of late, but I try to check out a little bit of everything.
That's awesome though! I always wanted to teach myself guitar, but I'm really terrible at it. Best of luck with your new band!

When I taught Myself the Guitar, I only Learned Power Chords.
But I taught myself a hundred songs using 3 chords
Mostly covers by Green day Blink-182 and the Ramones.
My advice if you wanna learn guitar again, it's OK if you know only 3 chords.

PS thanks

I don't know if you've seen it or not, but Noodle also stars in another short I made called The Dollar Menu. You can check that out here if you haven't - joemcgro.deviantart.com/art/Th…

well I technically haven't seen it, I've seen the Nostalgia Critics review of it, which means o saw the parts of it that are laughably bad, but not the ones that make me want to shoot myself.

But thank you for your empathy.

Haha that's actually how I started as well. I showed my girlfriend the review and we peed ourselves laughing and tried looking up the actual special.
Word of advice: If the Critic reviews it, it's usually not worth watching.

:iconnwolfman:
NWolfman Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Student Filmographer
Idk, I've watched a few of the movies he's reviewed that I only knew after he reviewed it and they werent that bad, tho before he rebooted, he almost never reviewed stuff I'd ever seen or heard of before. In fact, before he rebooted, I felt like he was his absolute meanest to the movies I'd actually seen beforehand (when I met him, I did a "psych hitler" and pretended to shoot him over the Rover Dangerfield review).

:iconjoemcgro:
JoeMcGro Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Haha nice moves with the Psyche-Hitler. 

I've seen a few before he reviewed them, and I was never a fan of the movie beforehand. Just personal tastes I guess, but I usually agree with him.

NWolfman Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Student Filmographer
Same. In fact, the one vid of his I can never watch is his review of "Felix The Cat," not just because I liked it as a kid, but because it's not a review, it's just the critic throwing a 22 minute hissy fit.

@01:00Awesoooooooome!

Maybe I'd just suggest a darker background for the lightsaber at the end - it kinda vanishes into the similar-valued-bulidings in the back.

BUT THE ANIMATION IS LOVELY! His crawl-run cycle is GORGEOUS.
