Men In Black - Part 2

The continuing story of my Men In Black parody staring Barack Obama and AKON. If you have yet to see the first episode, it's not essential but does set up how Barack happens to be a MIB agent. I'd recommend you take a look.

In this second episode Barack learns the truth about the former President and Vice President and attempts to play a practical joke that goes wrong.

Paul Dini's, Rashy, once again makes an appearance in one of my animations as the boss of everything (well almost). After being foiled by Underdog in The Copier, Rashy continues his scheme to graduate from being the boss of a corporation to world and universe domination!

When I started this series I had no idea Rashy would make an appearance but that's just the way I work. I start with an idea and see where it takes me rather than scripting the whole thing from beginning to end. As soon as I wrote Cheney saying "The boss won't be happy about this" it was obvious Rashy was going to make a come back in his secret role as the head bad guy.

At this point I couldn't tell you what will happen in the next episode other than you know Bush and Cheney are probably going to feel Rashy's wrath!

Willie Nelson - In The Road (Again)

GoAnimate had an informal competition on their message board forum to guess the next license they'd release on their site. Willie Nelson was definitely not on anyone's radar. Not even close.

If there was any doubt that GoAnimate is not just a 'kids' site then the recently launched Willie Nelson theme should lay that to rest. The only way Willie could possibly be known by kids in the 10-17 year old bracket is if they've seen the some-what below average Dukes of Hazard movie from 2005 in which Willie appeared as a weed smoking Uncle Jesse.

Since this theme has nothing to do with the Dukes of Hazard movie and everything to do with Willie Nelson, his music and his touring show, then only die hard country music fans and Willie's own fan base are going to be really excited by Willie's appearance on GoAnimate. There aren't too many of them in the 10-17 year old age bracket.

To try and make Willie a bit more appealing to the younger market there is a Super Willie character but that's about it. The purpose of the theme is actually to help promote Willie's latest album, Naked Willie, which I'm sure all 10-17 year olds will rush out and buy... right?

Don't get me wrong, I like Willie. In fact I'm in his target age group market. I know many of his greatest hits, even stuff he did as part of The Highway Men.

That aside, a new character is a new character, so a lack of knowledge about who Willie Nelson is hasn't stopped people animating their own Willie Nelson adventures. Below is my first contribution in which Willie tries to sing one of his biggest hits.

Another new GoAnimate feature that has been introduced with the Willie Nelson theme is the animated slide show. With this feature you can import images from Flickr or upload them from your computer and create your own slide show with Willie Nelson segways. I gave it a go with my Willie Nelson Cat House slide show below.

Star Trek: Laundry Day - Part 4

To understand what's going on be sure to watch Laundry Day - Part 1 and Laundry Day - Parts 2 and 3 before this latest installment.

In this episode things get more serious as a Klingon Ship snatches the Enterprise's jettisoned washing machine before it can be vapourized. Captain Kirk is concerned for the Enterprise's schematics (accidentally left in Scotty's pants pocket in the machine) and Lieutenant Uhura is concerned for the fate of her underwear.

Watch for the 'Klingon underwear' joke that has been begging to be used since I started the series.

Men In Black - Staring Barack and AKON

In a previous post I mentioned that GoAnimate's AKON character would make a great stand in for Will Smith in any Will Smith movie parody. The AKON animated character is dressed in a black pinstripe suit so the obvious movie parody has to be Men In Black (MIB).

With all the conspiracy theories (alleged) linked to George W. Bush and his administration one would imagine there's a lot of classified information that the new President, Barack Obama, needs to know - hence his appearance here.

This is the start of yet another series and simply sets the scene for the story ahead.

Star Trek - Laundry Day 2 and 3

Be sure to watch Star Trek - Laundry Day (Part 1) before continuing with this post otherwise you'll be missing the first part of the story.

There's not much to add with these two episodes other than to say I'm trying to follow a similar structure and intentionally keeping them short.

It's all just a bit of fun and I'll probably do a few more episodes because there's a Klingon joke still begging to be used!
