I loved the visuals, great sense of style and well pulled off. The animation made great use of rubber hosing and warping, it was nice to see you moved away from the rigidness of 3D! The vibrant colours worked a charm but gradually became a bit too sickly for me, but thats just my opinion!

All in all i was really impressed with this! Congratulations, good luck with your aniboom competition.

I loved it. I, too, thought it was a nice break from what we're used to seeing in 3D. The character design and style of animation was great. You really thought about the character's physical shape when animating. It reminded me of stop-motion in a way. Even the flat look of the smoke from the train appealed to me. Great job and good luck!

it's a great movie you did there, I love it :)
Like the others said, it's nice to see something that doesn't look Standard-CG!

Keep up the good work! Hope we'll meet someday at Pixar or something ;)

I havn't seen an animation like this since Bluto and Popeye ran around throwing Olive Oil over their shoulders. “Oh help me Popeye” – classic. You have really translated this squash and stretch style into 3d well.

good job.

The way the bad guy's scream at the end is interupted by the kissing is especially funny.

That was the best set up for a cliched ending ever, and then to end that way was sooo perfect. I can honestly say I was not expecting that. You did such a great job of setting up the audience and then twist it like that at the end was priceless. I also enjoyed the overall style of the short. Very stop motion like. Great job.
