I'm not your friend anymore. Let's go kamping. Or bungee jumping. -- A treasure trove of hilariously bizarre stop-motion Flash animations featuring little blue claymation dudes.

Cute, kinda funny. Not very well animated, but hell-- the kid's only 18.

P.S. Claymation is a registered trademark of Laika, Inc. (formerly Will Vinton Studios). Not that it really matters. I'm just sayin', is all.

I LOVE this.

Its modern political discourse laid bare.

I think they need to focus on the dialogue more.

Or he does, that is.

Cool, I'm starting to do a bit of this in my spare time and it is good to see someone else has the same hobby.

Heh. I love the dialogue:

"I'm stuck in the VCR! Ow."
"How did you get stuck in the VCR?"
"I, I just wanted to have my own TV show."
"What? What, what do you mean uh-oh, what happened?"
"I went further into the VCR!"
"Why did you go further into the VCR, that just makes things harder for me."
"Uh, can, am I on TV yet?"

Because I'm anal -- these animations are neither stop-motion nor Flash nor Claymation.

How are they not stop-motion or Flash? He appears to use stop-motion gear, and imports the finished movies into Flash. Why must you make me scratch my head, Robot Johnny?

My mistake, Gator... I only watched it briefly enough, and the video quality was so poor, it just looked like cheap 3D graphics and not actual stop-motion. As for Flash, okay, yeah it was presented in Flash, but I get uppity when people call something Flash animation when the animation itself wasn't created IN Flash. Like I said... anal.

Ah, I gotcha.

Yeah, I actually wish he would present them in their original .avi format -- he knows they're lower-quality this way, but he likes to submit them to Flash sites like Newgrounds.

Claymation has become a genericized trademark, like cellophane, it seems. I guess Vinton/Laika never bothered to crack down on usage of the term...
