01-17-2006, 02:49 PM
mortel ! :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

01-17-2006, 04:24 PM
I am not a big fan of fart jokes but man.... this is absolutely fantastic!

I love the design, I love the characters and oh my god, their laughter is sooooo cute and suits them so well.
Bottom line? 5 of those shiney triangular shapes from me.



01-17-2006, 06:16 PM
Hahaha, really funny, i like a lot, and the render is beautiful! :thumbsup:

01-17-2006, 06:40 PM
It's a nice classic work! I like the light pastel look, but the gag is a bit old and seen. Anyway great job!

01-17-2006, 08:24 PM
Ha! I really laughed out loud for this one! awsome job!

01-17-2006, 09:12 PM
Great job!

The only thing I noticed was that when the girl falls down at the end, the big farty monster does not follow her with his eyes, he just keeps staring at where she was standing. Sort of felt wrong to me. :)
Other than that... Great work! :thumbsup:

01-17-2006, 09:39 PM
hey GREAT job here!, congrats to Alligatoon for doing such thing, great job in all ways, rendering, animation, ALL!

Hope to see more, i'm going directly to your website :)

You have a new fan here :)

01-17-2006, 11:27 PM
Agreed with the above. Beautifully done! I especially like the use of color and the little girl's design but fart jokes are a little old. On the other hand, it's the simple gags that have international appeal since they don't require any particular language.

Well done!

01-18-2006, 01:31 AM
Beautiful scene and excellent animation!

01-18-2006, 01:49 PM
Yeah! great
very cute girl!

01-18-2006, 02:07 PM
I lke the "pigophant" the most .his dumb facial expressure and how hes shaking ,when he farts!images/icons/icon10.gif

01-18-2006, 08:50 PM
I would really like to see this story get developed more. The characters are great, very cute and very appealing. Goodluck with future projects.

01-18-2006, 09:01 PM
Like some said before: the joke's a little old, but what everything else is simply impressive.
The Characters, the animation, the textures, the atmosphere, the style...
This is a very good one...

01-18-2006, 09:38 PM
Well i like this old joke, it's just funny, i love the collor combination, and the models are briljant, congrets on this project.

Keep up the good work!

01-18-2006, 09:44 PM
Very impressive. I love the feel of the whole animation. And as for fart jokes, well, I'm sure they are as old as farts themselves, and I'm sure that as long as people are farting, someone will make a joke about them. :)

01-19-2006, 08:32 AM
Quality work! I love everything inside, the expression, the render, esp the fart monster. Cute! The story not bad, really funny. ^_^

01-20-2006, 03:25 AM
I agreee, this is very cuteee!!, nice rendeerr, soo smooth

01-20-2006, 04:42 AM
It's quite funny though I found some bloopers. hehehe
Where is the broom stick gone? the next thing after she grab it, it's gone when she tickling the bunny chin.
and when the buny fart, there she got a wand in her hand? and later, when she faint, the wand disapeared again?
Well, she's a sorceres indeed. have a magical ability to make things disapeared and reapeared :P
Haha, I'm just like to look for some bloopers. don't take what i'm saying :D
It's truly a very nice rendering though... and VEry great expression too.

01-20-2006, 10:29 PM
fantastic work, the character designs and animation are top class. well done. :twisted:

01-20-2006, 11:17 PM
that's an awsome short. I love the loook of it. The rendering is incredible. What renderer did you use?
When I saw this, I told everybody about how amazed I am about the rendering quality. though everything else is great as well of course:)

01-21-2006, 01:33 PM
Big Thanks to everybody for the comments. We do appreciate the support. Cheers ! :beer:

Now, on to answering the questions :

whats next in the pipeline for alligatoon?

Well, next is continuing to develop our current properties through more scriptwriting and lovely promotional material on shiny paper and then trying to pitch the concepts to dubious TV executives... and of course working on some new projetcs as well, but that's really much too early to talk about those.
Even though it's not updated that often ( really sorry about that ) You can always check our website ( for fresh news about what's up with Alligatoon.

The only thing I noticed was that when the girl falls down at the end, the big farty monster does not follow her with his eyes, he just keeps staring at where she was standing.

You're absolutely right ! If time allows we'll fix it, otherwise well you're really supposed to be looking at Kumita when she goes down so hopefully it's not that noticeable and we'll just leave it as it is.

It's quite funny though I found some bloopers

I bet you did ! that's the great thing about cartoons, continuity doesn't really matter that much compared to timing and attitudes.

What renderer did you use?

We used Lightwave3D for shading, Lighting and Rendering.

Thanks again to everyone for posting.

See you later,

Franck & Laurent @ Alligatoon

Please Alligatoon .. can you post another link >>> not FTP

01-21-2006, 08:57 PM


Okay, for some reason I was thinking, "So THAT'S what Ginny Weasley did before Hogwarts" when I saw it was a redheaded little witch on a broom (Harry Potter reference - yes, I'm 36 years old and a Potterhead. :P )

Excellent work, and the little giggles and expressions were just too cute.

01-21-2006, 11:13 PM
Enjoyable short! Simple setting but well done, although I did notice the eye bit after it was mentioned earlier.. I was watching Kumita "pass out". :)

01-22-2006, 04:34 PM
wonderful work. Just the kind of animation I love to see. Well executed and looking fantastic. And in Lightwave! May I ask what other software you used in conjunction?


01-23-2006, 12:51 AM
That was totally awesome short. :D wwaaaaay too short, though. I really want more. :)

Loved the character designs and the whole look of it. Animation was good too. Great job. :D
