congratulations!:)

excelent work,
my only critique would be that the animation in some scenes is a bit slowmotion- imho it could have been faster and more snapy

i would also like to hear some sounds when they are talking
:)

Hmm, yeah a bit stilted in the animation timing... that is, like veljko said... you'll have a really snappy action and then a really slow reaction-recovery from the action, like someone's turning the speed up and then down and then up again. I like the snappiness and exaggeration of these cartooney characters, so I'd error on the side of too fast.
The rose-colored vision when she's screaming at him is a good bit.
I wasn't too big a fan of the character design, though: I didn't find the female appealing.
Also, that bass-line is from "The Eels".
