@00:49I believe you and believe in you, but I guess what I'm saying is, "that's an awfully over-populated medium," and, "life's far shorter than it seems when you watch tv."


I wish you fruition and I hope you find the way.

My graduating film from RMCAD 2013 - The Dollar Menu

Two best friends, a sheep and a dog, are poor and starving. So when a dollar floats by in the wind, best friends turn to enemies as the race for the dollar begins. The finish line: The Dollar Menu.

Sad that I just found you thanks to Tumblr! I watched this about five times hah, very professional! You definitely deserved that Daily Deviation for such amazing work. The animation and style are very inspiring to me, I think I've found how to crawl out of my art block hole! Look out for some fanart of Noodle and Beans- I'll be sure to do it soon! You're a very good voice actor by the way! XD I hope this can evolve into a series on YouTube or perhaps on TV. I'd definitely tune in! Thank you for this cute animated short!

I'm sure there's plenty of people you've inspired! I'm glad you brought the old Cartoon Network/Nickelodeon style into it. I showed this to my nine year old sister and she loved it! I have to say Noodle reminds me of CatDog from Nickelodeon a long time ago, and Beans reminds me of the style of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. You're very talented!
I wish you luck in the process. I'll definitely keep my eyes open on your Tumblr/Deviantart!

That was hilarious!  The slapstick comedy reminded me of the cartoons that I grew up with yet the updated style and dialogue (not to mention the music) made it all seem very fresh.  Great characters and story and I laughed pretty hard at the end.  Sign of a great cartoon talent! :clap:
