BAMAN PIDERMAN

I finished up the coloring and put some nice foley on this piece I made a year ago. It seems to be an audience favorite:

This is like the greatest thing ever! Special superheroes! I almost fell out of my chair I was laughing so hard.

I put it on my blog. And my friend put it on his: http://boodachitaville.com/

Kudos man, kudos. -Andrew

I can't put my finger on it, but this animation has "it".

I must have watched it twenty times.

Surreal appeal, plus banality.

Superb work. Hope to see some more.

Alex you are too good...
I remember when you said you were going to color this.. a little part of me died because I love your lines...

But I looove the way you colored it...
It's really great!
The new sound is really great too...
The little flop of the sandwich sound is just right...

Nice job!

:D

Britt said...

I think I've watched this about a billion times today, and posted it on facebook, and forced my family to watch it...

I can't stop listening to the tomatoes and the sandwhich plop.

Jacob said...

Brilliance. Sheer brilliance. Found it from a friend who found it on Facebook. I shared it again on Facebook to spread the love.

You're a genius.

I can't stop giggling about this cartoon.

Damn you.

Does Flip Johnson still teach at Mass Art? I met him a while back and he stopped responding to my emails.

Alex, I am so charmed by this animation. I wish you every success as you graduate--I sense your brilliance (and hard work) will bring you great rewards, and will entertain many. I blogged about Baman Piderman here: http://resiever.edublogs.org/2008/07/20/this-this-i-love/

I have no idea how I stumbled upon this (it wasn't using stumbleupon, I know that much), but my wife and I can't get enough of it. I put it on blog as well.

M2J said...

=( I really wanted to view the video but youtube says it's no longer available...

alpharat said...

I have watched it a ton this morning, too.

It's the way the sandwich just flops in the web.

I want to see a feature length of these guys!

Ivan said...

You'll probably have about a million views by tomorrow.
Now would be the right time to make a sequel =)

Sean Gibson, UK said...

Saw this today and have watched it 12 times so far. Decent intervals between each viewing, it wasn't just gluttenous revelry, I simply keep coming back.

Among a select group of friends that this has been passed onto it's already loved and will no doubt be endlessly quoted.

Just a big ol' thankyou!
