Cat and Bunny [caution: shockwave]: a hare-raising tail of love in the face of all common sense.

That was well done. Most of the flash animations I see--the animator doesn't really understand editing, setup and payoff, and other elements of visual storytelling. This one obviously does. Thanks.

I enjoyed that one too, and I really liked the song. Any idea who it was?

The credits say the song is "Ddutta Keunyuh" by Witches. Whiches? With Cheese? The band name reads like Witches.

Someone who's more familiar with modern Korean slang can maybe explain this better, but the title means something like "she has risen" or "there she goes off".

Anyway, good stuff. Today must be Korean Flash Day.

I loved that. Very well done.

Good find, SPrintF.

There seem to be two styles of drawing in asian cartoons-- it's either the hello kitty style, exemplified by this flash, or anime style. Are there any other styles???

Most excellent.

I've seen that comment made so many times here. Can someone explain the difference?

Anyway, I enjoyed it. Whatever you call it.

The other weird thing I've seen in a lot of internet-available asian animation is using emoticon conventions for the faces. They have some strange characters over there, and if you watch the various expressions of the cat, you'll see that many of them are made up of those characters.

But yeah. Fun two-tone music and animation, thanks.

Pretty cool but at first I thought the music was by this band. How many gypsy polka rock bands can there be?

It reminds me of Pepe Le Pew (the skunk character in early Warner cartoons) chasing and being chased by a female cat through several episodes. Great find SPrintF!

What's the difference between the Flash and Shockwave Players?

More to the point, the file was an SWF (Shockwave Flash, yes), which runs in Flash. Actual Shockwave-only files have DIR or DCR extensions.

Anyway, that was great -- if only we had a translation! Visual puns far and above the Gilliam-lite that makes up most Flash visual humor.

That actually was excellent. The clothespin on the nose at the end was almost touching.

Nice find, SPrintF.

This is so groovy. I wish I spoke Korean so I knew what they were saying. My 15 month old son loves this thing, and has made me replay it a dozen times or more...the critters make him very happy, and he dances to the music. :)

Drats...it seems to have been removed. Does anyone have a cache of it that they could email me? My son really loves this thing and I didn't think to save it to a drive.
