500 Pound Planet: the final chapter

Jesse Brown, a BoingBoing guest blogger, is the host of TVO's Search Engine podcast.

Here's the conclusion to 500 Pound Planet, the cartoon I made with Josh Dolgin. I really hope you've enjoyed it, and would love to hear some reviews/criticism/impressions.

500 Pound Planet: Chapter Three


  1. Is this available in other formats, like BB Video? Mpeg, DivX, even Youtube? I’d love to see this, but Flash for Linux is teh suxors, and won’t handle Vimeo (or most Flash games, or anything much – it barely stutters through Youtube on a nice dual processor).

  2. Fer me the integration of stolen conversations was the highlight, not the more contrived bits. Did the animation lose some tightness in later chapters? I loved the spaghetti hair!

  3. Again, absolutely loved it. Before the crossbow dude walked up, I knew he’d want the McGuffin shrimp. It happened just as I guessed… too good. The missing hair in Blue’s head… priceless. The sound effects of the cartoons… laugh-out-loud. The denouement… big cool. Do it again!

  4. Dragonfrog: There must be something about your system that is causing problems. I had no difficulty at all, and I’m running Linux. I can play every flash game I’ve encountered and only a couple of the more cookie-crazy video sites give me any problem.

    I’m going to have to watch this thing again. I’m not sure what to make of it.

  5. Wow did I ever have to uninstall and reinstall a lot of stuff to get that working. But it does work! Thanks everyone, I wouldn’t have beleived it could work otherwise…

  6. I love getting things for free. It’s my favorite thing. I love it. I love it. I love it. I love it. Thanks for sharing this! Superb.

  7. Really liked it. I’ve never seen stop motion combined with photography quite like this; it gave it a distinct atmosphere that worked well with the overall tone.

    I’m not sure I quite understood it all, but it was nice going along for the ride.
