So there’s this place online called GoAnimate. You go there and you animate stuff. No, really.
You pick a few characters, type their dialogue and through the miracle of text-to-speech technology a little cartoon is created. It’s quite neat. Anyone who can type can now create a terrible cartoon nobody wants to watch. Like this exercise in pointlessness I just made:
The above is what happens when you give someone unqualified five minutes of free time and a cartoon-making website.
I’m toying with the idea of making humorous videos using GoAnimate. What’s that you say? Why oh why would I ever do such a thing?! Because the above cartoon is such a runaway success, obviously!
What do you think? Something I should spend my time on? If so, any great ideas for what you’d like to see? Drop me a comment and let me know…

Well, at least the characters are wooden enough to be used as stand-ins for some well-known world leaders… All you need then is witty dialogue (which the originals can never provide, btw).
@EllaMedler True, true…although Bush has been a goldmine for comedy material! 😉
Although, I found the cartoon characters quite engaging, my advice is do not give up your day job.
Hehehehe I can’t understand why you’d say that. It’s Oscar material right there!
