I’ve been seeing a lot of Scooby Doo on my dash lately. My friend discovered what he describes as “Shaggy eviscerating an ape”
the kind where the left foot turns into the right foot
whats hilarious to me is that the animator paid so much attention to things that dont matter (where the ape particles are going, ect) and so little attention to things that do (the head and arms and platform of the ape float themselves offscreen? shaggy is moving like hes underwater?? THE APE DISINTEGRATES LIKE WET PAPIER MACHE??)
This is actually really fascinating. It takes me back to critiques in animation class. “Shaggy is off-model and his spine dislocates itself in the middle, and yet you put such loving care into making sure that rolling board spun away correctly” “Have you tried removing excess inbetweens or putting it on twos? He’s moving really slowly for someone flailing about.” “Did you put much thought into what the gorilla was made of? The head is really solid but everything detaches itself with the slightest touch.” I feel like I could watch Shaggy eviscerate this ape for hours.
