First of all I'm stating right here and now this is not a spam comment/topic. I am very very serious about this. Now with me starting over, I'm trying to get your perspective of comedy. Now while i know for sure everyone will think differently. How do you define a good comedy.

i must say i'm a fan of the Shakespearean Era of comedy, where everyone dies and there is a very unhappy ending.

but for me personally, i define comedy as a programmed reaction to something unexpected or clever said in a humorous way.

So you would agree that Random inflicting comedy works right?

yeah the quote system is weird now
and DD that's a tragedy...
at the root of all comedy is laughing at someone else's expense. So i define comedy as sadism

Comedy is hard to pull off. There are so many ways you can just fail at making something funny.

All of this depends on what kind of comedy you're going for. Are you going for slapstick? Are you going for quick witted jokes? Are you going to try and be random?

I think what you should do is go back and watch some of the old really funny cartoons you remember laughing at. Billy and mandy for example is a good one to watch if you're looking for good comedy. Find some high rated comedy movies and take a look at them. And for slapstick, watch the looney tunes. Believe it or not, a lot of the slapstick in looney tunes was set up before it actually happened.

For example, take bugs bunny and daffy duck for example. remember when elmer was trying to figure out who to shoot? A lot of that was Bugs and Daffy discussing who was going to get shot, a lot of talking and a good way of setting up each way daffy was shot.

I'm not very good with comedy but when you do it, you need to make sure the joke you're doing is actually funny and not just "lol this happens it's so funny" People randomly getting hurt for no reason is something that is very unfunny. To me anyway.

"This movie did not make me laugh once. I barely pulled a smile. I credit your understanding of humor theory, but this was too lame, or executed in a way that made me more embarrassed for watching it thus completely diluting all humor. I hope for better in ep 2."

Pretty much i'm trying to make sure ^ doesn't happen again. Then again he could just having a very bad day again....>_>

I think the problem is that your episodes lack something. It doesn't feel like a comedy, it sorta just... feels like it's there. I get that I'm supposed to laugh at places, but the biggest problem is because of sprites.

For a good comedy sprite series, one thing you need to learn is how to custom sprite. You need the characters to show emotion, you need to change the camera around. In all your episodes the camera is solely focused on the characters, there's no change. No different angles.

You've got to experiment, not just with the comedy but with animation itself.

Also, you might wanna try overly dramatic comedy. If you've ever watched an anime called Nichijou then you'll see this kind of comedy and it works GREAT!

Here is a scene from the first episode of the series.


Now, I'm not really sure how you can pull off this overly dramatic kind of humor in sprite animations, but I'm sure you can come up with some things. Lol.

I'm saying that the sprites is one part of your problem, you need to elaborate more on your jokes. Imagine them in your head and try to find out if they're funny or not.

It's only stealing if you're seriously taking every joke from their show. Watching others to get a little inspiration isn't bad, as long as you're not directly ripping them off.
