you really nailed making something unique here i think and with some thanks to the camera swinging motion you got goin on (you mentioned in a response below that this was a first for working with new softwares- good work i say) and honestly it's not going to stick with some people just because it's so over-the-top but the campy anime vibe plus the totally ridiculous premise of shaggy fisting scooby doo that makes this solid as a newgrounds submission. taking dumb ideas and rolling with them brings us good shit like this so p much never change and keep developing yrself stylistically
sharp as fuck. I liked how experimental everything was, and apart from that the art was super easy on the eyes. great colors, good looks, good animations. It was short but managed to get so much done in that amount of time. good work B-)
Awww yeah, NEDP approved! Thank ya very much :D
stylish, frantic, and really fun to watch. lip sync may have been off at times, but you make up for the lack of precision with clever segues that complement the song's lyrics and brilliant, lively animation. the characters you show off have a lot of energy and are lots of fun to watch. Plus: fucking reel big fish. the video reflects a lot of the sarcastic, fun style the band itself goes for, which is definitely something a lot of people forget about when making animations about songs they like. Well done, sir
Let me start out by saying that I've seen your toons around, from posts on reddit to whenever you make it on the front page, and each time I see a new one I get a little pumped. I'm not huge on drug culture or psychedelia, but there is a lot to be appreciated about the animation style you bring to the table. This particular short feels a bit like you're pandering here with the subject matter and what not, but still it's pretty enjoyable. The observational humor here and there (jesse & james's relationship status, brock being a pedophile, ash being an asshole) aren't really unexplored themes here, but there's still some fun to be had in how the characters interact still. Maybe this is a bit too wordy for a cartoon about pokemon, but I want to see more from you guys!
I say sir! The cloudcuckoolander humor fits the style of the narrative so well; you combine verbal jokes with physical gags that are as fast paced as they are hilarious. There are a lot of very implicit bits that take attention to notice and add to the ability to want to watch it a second time. smart, fast, and with a lot of improvement hoss. For the most part the plot does not suffer from the style you execute with how you tell the story, but there are some parts that could be clearer, though this can add also to the re-watch-ability (tm) of it. lip-sync does get off at times (but I can say safely that I screw that up just as much) and sometimes I feel character design is either a little inconsistent or lacking (which will happen when making a cartoon with such a wide cast of characters), which takes away from the charm of your aesthetic. I want more, god damn you, more.
fuck you and give me popcorn
A little goofy at times, but what really catches the eye with your animations is your style; very clean, very charming, tweens pop and work well with the way characters move, though some of them are a little simple at times (characters moving in tweens for entire running sequences tend to look a little awkward.) Obviously a bit more attention to movement detail would fix that and easily give an extra edge to the visual appeal here. Cute stories, border-lining immature at times, but still being fun to watch. More, I say! More!

RIGHT WHERE IT HURTS. you're smacking the memenet in the face and going "hey stop that" with a charming animation that gets to a point really quickly without being too terribly earnest. Funny, smart, smooth, and concise. Hell yeah. youdabest, yotam
Keeping it fresh, keeping it strange
Best installment on the series yet (: The way you subverted the conflict to make the antagonist so much more ridiculous yet affable made it a whole lot more fun to even hear him talk; Zanta included, the characters had even more charisma to them than any of your previous animations. Narrative, as a whole, was whimsical as always, and I did like all of the in-betweens you threw in there. Keep up the good work dudeeee
All and all pretty great animation, A tad short but I'll forgive you. Voice-acting was what made this for me, the script was nice and wacky, with an abrupt but giggle-worthy ending. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND STUFF
