TidBits 105 - Sneezing by andrewk
TidBits 105 - Sneezing
THE VIDEO!

Support my work on Patreon to keep this show going, and to help me continue working on my art in general here: www.patreon.com/andrewkaiko:D

Can you control sneezing?? Why does it occur?  Norm and Cory explain this biological reflex so you can prepare for the Spring allergy season!

Tidbits with Norm & Cory is an edutainment series featuring the 2 furry critters from the animated short, Norm & Cory!  Aimed at middle-school students in science class, or just any curious child thirsty for knowledge, Norm guides them through an intro course comprised of 1-minute episodes with his pupil Cory! The Patreon campaign won't just be for Tidbits either.  From time to time I'll also add still drawings, comic pages, and other videos.

A new episode will be added at least once a month on the children's video site, BatteryPOP!  Uploads on YouTube for the same episode will follow!

Super Mario Bros - Game Room by andrewk
Super Mario Bros - Game Room
Or...... Mario Grumps. Peach's game room is pretty swank! I imagine the irony of Mario doing badly at video games and he has a mini-rant about it before they continue further.

I had this idea months ago. I originally intended for it to be a short animation, but I am packed with enough stuff right now that will last more months. I like these painterly styles, but they take a bit longer to do than cel style drawing. I'll try to do more like this painting in the future though!

SPOILERS!!!

It's true that trailers usually lie to get people to see a movie in a theater. The trailer for this one did lie a bit too, but in a way I never seen before: the CGI characters interacting with a live-action beach town and battling Burger Beard actually takes up only the last FOURTH of the movie! The rest is a showcase of nearly all the kinds of animation styles on the planet, with the hand-drawn style from the TV show taking up most of the run time. That's right… against all odds, the 2nd most successful February opening of all time is a mostly HAND-DRAWN ANIMATED movie, and USA audiences were essentially tricked into seeing one! This makes a fan of the old traditional ways like me happy.

Sadly, the story was kinda WORSE than I expected. Because the meat of the action really takes place at the end, the rest is comprised of the more usual comedic/talky antics seen in the TV show with story points that are either grossly exaggerated or come out of nowhere, which many may not be prepared for when wanting something more conventional. It DID feel like some scenes ruined the pace. How would the loss of a recipe for a fast food restaurant and no Krabby Pattys put a peaceful town into an apocalyptic Mad Max-like riot in a second? The time machine side plot was included to introduce Bubbles who would help them all out later, and give Plankton more time to learn teamwork, but it was otherwise an unnecessary addition- the goal they were both trying to achieve with the machine was ruined by Spongebob by around the hour point, putting the characters back to square one. You can tell the TV writers were struggling to find a way to make a new story to fill a 90-minute runtime.

Antonio Banderas is one of the few actors who can act seamlessly on a set to cartoon characters who do not exist, right up there with Brendan Frasier, and he carries all his scenes with ease. One other thing the trailers didn't tell us was that the seagulls that Beard narrates part of the story to can TALK, which I was initially against seeing as how they're clearly elements of the "real" world, …. until I discovered they are voiced by some of the best Los Angeles cartoon voice actors working today like Rob Paulsen, Kevin Michael Richardson, Eric Bauza, Cree Summer, Billy West, and more, which made up for it! They take up a lot of the humor in Banderas' scenes and I warmed up to them eventually, even though I understand how they can be annoying.

Overall, this was a hilarious, harmless, film that captures the random humor of the 1920's cartoons, but doesn't really get going until the third act. Haters of the more recent seasons can REST EASY! grin emoticon I'm glad that this time, Squidward and Sandy got to be supporting roles instead of ancillary characters in the first Spongebob movie. I appreciated the subtle nods to even the first season (Plankton exploring Spongebob's brain is something he did early on, the "Teamwork" song is near identical to the "Friendship" song, Squidward reprises his creative "interpretive dance" animation that he hasn't done in about 15 years!), which only the returning writers from the first season can bring back. The story could use work, but everything else is worth admission!

Patreon Request 1 - Masks by andrewk
Patreon Request 1 - Masks
THE VIDEO!

Andrew Suydam donated at least $10 per piece of art. As a reward, I animated his request of Jim Carrey beating the filling out of Jamie Kennedy for soiling the franchise The Mask, and the Nostalgia Critic enjoying every minute of it! :D

Those who donate at least $10 will also get a 5-second-long or cycling animation request! Spread my page around to help me make more awesome art!
