When I started making part 5 of MIB2 I had three objectives:
- Explain how George and Dick came to be working for Rashy despite being on his 'hit' list in episode 1.
- Get Rashy into the White House.
- Break Barack and Joe out of their cell so they could start heading back to Earth and expose Rashy's brilliant disguise.
Unfortunately the last objective was a problem because no one was really looking for Barack and Joe since Rashy returned disguised as Barack with a kill-bot disguised as Joe. I also couldn't see a way Barack and Joe could really break themselves out, believably, since their cell looked pretty secure and they had no access to any weapons or tools.
With no ideas forth coming I settled for a lame joke and turned my focus back to Rashy and his evil plan.
Initially when I started MIB2 I had no idea what Rashy's plan actually was but, like most evil geniuses. assumed it was probably world domination. Once Rashy became President of the free world it was crunch time. I had to think of something as his objective.
On part 3 I joked in the comments on GoAnimate:
Rashy just wants to make the world a better place by being its Leader... so he can send all the bad people to their rooms until they promise to be good... and so no one can send him to his room until he promises to be good ;-)It was actually a throw away line. I never realized it would become part of the story.
However I thought about it more and the thing that started Rashy on the path of being an 'evil genius' as a character for me was my original Rashy animation, The Boss of Everything, in which Rashy is sent to his room but dreams of becoming the boss of everything so he can send everyone else to their rooms! I decided to remain true to Rashy's character.
Rashy is really just a child so the idea of him wanting to send everyone to their rooms is not that outlandish or unbelievable as an objective for him. Though strangely his access to some pretty great resources like 'kill-bots' and a spaceship doesn't seem beyond belief either!
The ending of this part with the record scratch sound and sudden cut is meant to indicate that this is not what anyone was expecting him to say... least of all Rashy's partners George and Dick. You'll see how this sudden turn of events affects them in the next episode.
