Underdog: The Copier

My first Underdog animation, UnderDOG NOT UnderFROG, was a little bit of a rushed job whilst the Underdog theme was still in beta test on GoAnimate. My animation was okay but not a particularly original story line.

Once a theme is released site wide on GoAnimate they always seem to throw in a few extra characters, backgrounds and more. One of those was Simon Bar Sinister, the evil, plotting scientist (pictured right). It seemed a good time to try a new story.

Traditionally in the Underdog cartoons Simon was the criminal mastermind however my love affair with Rashy as The Boss of Everything, specifically Rashy sitting behind that huge bosses desk, seemed like a great opportunity to bring him in for a bit of an unexpected plot twist.

I'm not entirely sure where the idea of the copier came from. It's not exactly original but perhaps it was just that GoAnimate had a background with a copy machine that led me towards the whole idea. The story arc is fairly good with logical steps for Underdog catching Simon. As wel all the loose ends are tied up with Rashy dodging the long arm of the law.

What I really like about this story is the fact that we know Rashy is really the evil mastermind yet Underdog and the rest of the good guys remain unaware of his plans for world domination. Whilst you might expect Simon to talk, he doesn't because he knows Rashy is not to be messed with. Plus he's probably hoping Rashy's legal team will help get him off with a warning.

There's a continuing story for Rashy and I'm sure this is not the last time you'll see him trying to become the boss of everything.
