Sticky The Stick #5 - Sticky and Sniffy
This episode introduces one of my favorite characters in the series: Sticky's acid-tempered dog Sniffy, who detests all the demeaning things dogs are supposed to do. Growing up in my household, we had birds, not dogs, so I guess this is how I imagined having a dog might be. Fun fact: you can hear my bird Snoopy chattering in the background of the ending music.
From the mind of a ninth-grader watching too much Tom & Jerry. Their antics inspired me to make a physical comedian of my own. I ran over to the computer and made this in a weekend using Macromedia Flash, a cheap microphone and the computer mouse (right-handed, no less!). It was somewhat improvisational, as I didn't know what was going to happen next until I made it, and my only guiding principle was to do something I figured would be unexpected.
Years later, the series was actually selected in the NickToons short film festival and aired on the NickToons channel. I was incredibly embarrassed that the other entries were these amazing productions and mine was just a stick figure...but still, how cool is that?
