Men In Black 2, Part 7 - The Final Part

It took a long time for me to complete the final part of my Men In Black 2 series. The Super Rica and Rashy theme license on GoAnimate had expired and the finale of Rashy's master plan had already come into play in episode 6. I had to find a way to tie up all the loose ends without Rashy.

Unfortunately I just couldn't come to a satisfactory conclusion without Rashy but I did manage to keep his scenes to an absolute minimum - which was necessary since I didn't have the animated Rashy to use.

I think I wrapped up the story reasonably well considering, when I started MIB2 the plan was for Rashy to return to his family, memory erased, as he did in the original MIB.

The scene with Agent Obama explaining things to the media is my favorite part of this installment. It's a little out of character for Obama to slip up with the Jedi mind trick line but I figure he's trying to rescue a difficult situation and isn't exactly thinking logically.

The mind trick joke was just too good not to throw in there once I'd decided that some people could be unaffected by MIB's mind erasing technology.

If you've seen the MyNetworkOne animation that I was commissioned to make you'll recognize the spinning newspaper is a custom flash prop that I made and adapted with new headlines and Rashy photo.

It was the final scenes with George, Dick and Rashy that caused the delay. It seemed like something of a stretch for MIB to re-employ George and Dick considering their history with Rashy but then I figured, this is fiction, could happen - and they did bring Agents Obama and Biden back.

Note in the scene where George and Dick are in the cell and the prison bars appear that's a new GoAnimate Entry/Exit effect. Which is a new feature that allows you to apply multiple transition effects like 'Fade' to individual objects and even characters in the studio.

As you can see Rashy is just a static image in his few scenes. It's a little disappointing because Rashy is really the whole reason my MIB series began. His role as an Evil Genius Sock Monkey has been a running joke in my animations almost since I first joined GoAnimate and started making Super Rica and Rashy animations.

Not that it was my idea entirely for Rashy to be an evil genius. In his very first official GoAnimate Cartoon he does cut Super Rica in half with a bow saw. I just figured cutting your own brother in half is a pretty evil genius thing to do and ran with it.

A few people have commented on the final part that they want to see an MIB3. It's great that people have enjoyed the series so much that they'd want another one.

I think I'd have to do a reboot of sorts if I went ahead. It's a series that is a lot of fun to tinker away at - since I don't write the scripts for it before hand. So I wouldn't rule out MIB3. Could be a while yet before I get back to it though.
