Kappa Movie Credits 01 A by andrewk
Kappa Movie Credits 01 A
Inspired by :iconjimenopolix:'s piece Jimenitoon Movie End Credits Screen Sample , I decided to think up what part of the end credits will look like for Kappa Movie if it existed!  To remind everyone, this is based on my own ideas for the movie, and absolutely nothing about this is official, even though I animated on the original Nicktoon! 

This shows the cast list as it appears on screen, a fitting end to a complete 90-minute tribute to anime/Western cartoon fans!  It will not scroll up like traditional credits would, but instead it will fade in and out, with images tweening left underneath it in a horizontal format, much like the end credits to Kung Fu Panda, and I imagine some form of the soundtrack playing along with it like this one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G2kB4… .

None of the names here are set in stone.  I made this list for hours considering who might be available at this time, who I would want to see reprising their roles, and who might be a good fit for the new characters I created. I considered this being recorded in LA, and with a mix of both anime dub actors and Western animation actors.  You may ask why I chose which actor for which character in the replies, or suggest other actors you might think would be a fit too!  I may even fill in for some of these roles on the chance we can't a suitable match, and I would've added myself among the list but didn't, since it felt a bit self-indulgent (I can do a good Guano, Ozu, Yes-Man, and Yoshi).  I may even make a second version of this shot, in case I think of other ideas for who can voice who!

Norm And Cory - Bonzai Maze 1

This is the first page of the first real comic I am making for Patreon! This will be a 3-page mini-comic starring Norm, Cory and Jerome that will take the place of the 8th TidBits episode for May.

I am trying to find a way to get Jerome into the show, but I am finding it hard to properly introduce him, and I would need to hire a third voice actor for him! He IS a cool character to write 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!

I was wondering what you thought of my designs, as you brilliantly worked on A Christmas Mikey yourself and I'm a really amateur artist. :P

I like how Kiyoko looks.  We never had any fanart of her before. The rest looks good!  I'd say just practice making your coloring cleaner.
