The New King of Cartoons

Popular GoAnimate animator, Cartoon King, invited people to continue his original story of the War of Kings. See his animation below.

Cartoon King has his own unique style that is more about getting his ideas down quickly and less about creating really polished and professional looking cartoons. It works great for him and I'm sure it means he's always working on something fresh.

However I'm kind of the opposite of that so, when I took up the challenge I thought Cartoon King's original story line could use some editing to make things a little easier to follow. To my mind the original tells the story in reverse so in my version I switched things around into a more sequential chain of events.

Cartoon King had his 'King' character in a kind of 'alternate reality' with TV noise as a background. Since the whole thing had a kind of mystical/supernatural theme I thought why not make the king 'god like' and put him up in the clouds - not necessarily heaven but not necessarily just in the sky on a cloud either. Perhaps an alternate plain in another reality - the Phantom Zone?

Either that or I'd just watched too many episodes of the TV series Monkey as a kid.

The to be continued line was put there because the intention was for other animators to continue the story. I think one or two did but finding their animations could be some what difficult. I know at least one person who did a great next episode but no longer has the episode on their GoAnimate account.

That aside, one of the nice features of GoAnimate is that if you see an animation you like but think could improve upon, if the animator allows it, you can just load a copy of their animation into the Studio Editor and mix it up all you want.
