Can be funnier and I'll bet it will be
This is a great start to a what seems like will become a great series. All the elements are there and so much can be done with them. This is the setup of which good cartoon are made. And to Robbie2431--not all Americans believed Sadam had weapons...just the stupid ones.
Who is missing the point?
Perhaps I am missing something here but it seems to me that everyone writing the vehemently negative reviews missed the entire point. They claim racism or ethnocentrism or nationalism or whatever you want to call it but the very point of the flash deals with the American tendency to ignore the sufferings in other countries. Whether this is the case or not, it is the perspective of this animation. Perhaps it could have been dealt with using a bit more tact but the message is worth noting. Other places, other people, other cultures exist that are equally as valid as your own. If you haven’t yet, please everyone, start acknowledging this fact.
What the hell is with that music?
I really liked it. I liked it better back when it was called Beavis and Butt-Head, but no, really, it sucked. Honestly, when dealing with a situation as stagnant as two characters staring into the camera the script must be stronger. Don't get me wrong, it is entirely possible to have a wonderful cartoon with minimal movement, but this isn't one of them. 1. Work on the script. 2. Either change the physical appearances or throw something in acknowledging Beavis and Butt-Head as a major inspiration, otherwise it's just sad (even an end credit would suffice). 3. Choose a sound track that actually fits the mood. Take this advice, please. It also might be wise to move the eyes away from a direct stare. When a character confronts the audience (as with a direct stare) it breaks what is called the "fourth wall." This is almost always a bad thing. This makes the audience uneasy and prevents them from having a purely spectatorial prespective. The audience is forced to be a part of the production and in the case of this cartoon, it is not the intention.
