The GoAnimate Complaints Department

GoAnimate released its new Stick Figure theme to mixed reactions from 'love it' to 'there is not enough actions' prompting some spirited discussion in the site's forum.

Notably, one popular animator reminded everyone that regardless of the theme's limitations (and the need to purchase many props with 'gopoints') people shouldn't lose sight of the fact that so much can be achieved with the site's studio at no cost to the user and that the staff are constantly working on improvements.

One of the issues included the lack of fight movements on the figures as many GA members envisioned emulating some of the all time classic stick figure fight animations that can be found on YouTube. Undaunted, one of GA's favorite community members, Coady, created an animation to showcase that the new stick figure theme could get its fight on.

In the midst of it all, I too, had noticed a general string of complaints being made that often came across as slightly ungrateful and whiney. GA members constantly complaining about what they don't have and forgetting that they'd already been given so much. Hence I was inspired to make an animation, below, covering some of the issues in my own humorous way.

I'm not sure how much this animation appeals to a general audience as it contains a number of GoAnimate inside jokes but you might pick up that the actual complaints stand is inspired by Lucy's Psychiatric Help stand from Charles Schulz, Peanuts comic strip.

It's also my very first Happy Bunny Animation staring Jim Benton's acidic tongued but very cute little rabbit. A great stand in for Lucy if ever there was one. The Happy Bunny theme is also new and I'd been looking for just the right concept ever since its release.

  1. Aw man, I have to stop by more. I was even mentioned in this one! lol.

    Thanks :)

    It was actually one of your comments in the forums that kind of spurred me on to make my stick figure animation. It had nothing to do with the stick figures, but you had mentioned how some people lacked imagination (again, in response to complaints).

    I wanted to make sure my imagination was still intact.

  2. Well you definitely showed imagination in your fight animation. Impressed me that's for sure. I posted a link to it here because I think you did post it to the GA forums showing people that the stick figures could be made to fight (with a bit of imagination).
