Even better than the first.
Wittier, faster, and even more creative than the first. Cameos by Vinyl Scratch and a rocking soundtrack make this a real treat to watch.
Very well done.
There's a massive amount of high-quality work here. The animation is solid, the visual styles are great, and the characters are well-portrayed. The only real thing I can say against it is that it doesn't feel quite as funny as the first two. There were a lot of moments in the first two that were instant classics. This is still so very good, but nothing just grabs you like in the first two. I hope you do make more down the line.
Different, but honestly kind of boring. Too weird to be funny, not weird enough to be that entertaining. The style was neat, though.
Good to see more RAB! This episode though didn't feel as lively or as funny as most others. It started off pretty slow, and most of the storylines that developed didn't really get very interesting. The part with the over-sexed cousin was pretty entertaining though, if not somewhat grotesque at a couple points.
This is still good stuff, just not among the best episodes.
Getting stale the third time around.
As a fan of the series, I'm definitely excited to see another Charlie episode! But, to get right to the point, I didn't think this episode was funny at all. And to be brutally honest, it was even actively UNfunny, to the point where by the end of it, it was so irritating that I was glad to turn it off.
What's the problem then? Certainly, there's no fault to the author's efforts. The episode's jam-packed with the same mix of wacky gags, great animation, and spot-on voicework. But that's just the problem - it's the exact same thing.
Maybe some of the problem lies with this particular batch of gags in this episode. But I think the greater problem lies in how the series is following the same basic storyline (and running jokes) over and over again. That sort of thing worked fine for the first couple episodes, but it's definitely showing its age by the third installment
Even the author seems to slyly acknowledge this fact in his work. As Charlie is pursued by the increasing horde of 'perceived monsters', the author clearly wastes no effort trying to animate all these stupid creatures. Even their names degenerate quickly into useless crap like "bluhbluhbluh." Even "Pink" and "Blue," usually so unflappably cheery and goofy, inevitably deflate a bit at the prospect of Charlie's unwavering grimness. Perhaps a sign that things aren't working out with the same approach?
Now, having said all that, I don't think the series is tapped out. All I'm saying is that it might be worth trying a different approach next time. Otherwise, the series will be doomed to stale monotony, no matter how funny the next particular batch of gags will be.
Oh, and I've never been a fan of the songs in the series either. But I will admit though, the Starfish bit was pretty funny - and that was probably the best part of the episode. But the rest of the song suffered from uninspired lyrics, boring melody, and it seemed to copy elements of Disney's "Under The Sea" and Pokemon's "Poke-Rap".
So hey, anyway, don't take this too harshly or anything - this is still a quality product. Maybe it's just time to try a different approach next time. I hope there's still more coming down the creative pipeline!
This is exactly the sort of thing I envisioned when I used to play that game & hear that song. Nice work!
There's not much here to comment positively on. It's sloppy, non-sensical, and incomplete. People might be won over by the attempt at being offensive, but ultimately, this is just plain dumb.
On the plus side, good animation, good charicatures, and decent voicework.
On the downside, it was too offbeat to be funny, and it was tough to even enjoy as a "weird" film because the outcome was unexpected and uncomfortably bizaare.
Clever, simple, and short! It's a good idea, well-executed.
Wouldn't this be more like sausage n' hole?
