    Please take this off, by posting this here, you`re basically turning Don Hertzfeldt`s long, VERY LONG, and hard work for a 9 minute piece completly useless. This is also pirating and is very illegal.

    the animation is still credited to him and was not made with intentions for profit. IAB is safe.

    took them long enough to get it here, though...

    from bitterfilms.com, http://www.bitterfilms.com/faq.html

    "I`ve seen bootleg copies of these films all over the internet. Why are there no streaming clips or full length versions of the films on your site? Or on one of those popular short film broadcast web sites?"

    To clarify for those just joining us, we`ve never released any of Don`s films on the internet. Any of our films that you may have watched online are, in fact, pirated copies that didn`t originate from us. This is very important to note, as these bootlegs are usually randomly re-edited, retitled, and/or of very poor technical quality -- you`re very likely not enjoying the films in their original form, as nature intended. Naturally, we can`t support the circulation of illegal bootlegs.

    You might find viewable versions of our films on this website one day, but the technology isn`t ready yet for everybody. It`s hard enough to make a big screen 35mm fi

    Here are Don`s 2 cents on the subject, from our old Q+A area:
    "we put lots of effort and care into shooting the films directly onto 35mm, perfecting the sound mixes, and quality-controlling them like vultures, so it`s a little heartbreaking to see them flippantly downgraded into little mono video files by some 10 year old who doesn`t know what he`s doing.. and for all the world to see.. so it bugs me when that`s how some people might be first exposed to your work. films are not meant to be seen on the internet. it`s clearly an inevitable thing to deal with, i just hope people understand that what they`re downloading is the equivalent of drinking a glass of fine wine after it`s been filtered through a sewer. it`s really not quite the same wine after that."

    Illegal copies of the films on disc used to also be peddled on the internet, by men and women with hairy backs and leaking pieces who apparently want to see poor little Don go hungry. They will all burn in a smokey gurg

Their eyes will go, gooooosh and their hair will be irritated with the wrong kind of shampoo and they will make sad pouting faces with their little mouths forming perfect O`s (as in, wooooooo!) because their skin will be torn into little cracker chunks by big angry bees and the dogs who appear in clouds of mysterious vapors. "Woooooo!!" they will say, "Wooooo, I should not have bootlegged Don`s films and now holy god is stomping my ass"

    Rocko, Don should make a website of animations meant for internet viewing and sell merchandise like happybunny or homestarrunner, that way he can make more money and the interest in the bootleg copies will go down because everyone will have access to the other animations free. I think it would catch on, he has exactly what the youth of today are interested in, but he needs to take advantage of the mindset of "free!, I don`t care if it`s illegal, its cool" that is rampant. Most people won`t buy the dvd or go to an animation show, but if it catches on, many people will buy the merchandise :)

    It`s true, I wouldn`t know Don existed if it weren`t for the internet. If it weren`t for the internet, NO ONE would know he existed. If it weren`t for pirating, he`d have been broke long, long ago.
    So Don, jump on the bandwagon. The internet is a glorious place now, where DVD quality video is perfectly and easily available online. Quality is no longer a good excuse.

    The Family Learning Channel did exist years ago. I believe they were bought by Disney and is now ABC Family. I doubt this was ever truly submitted for actual commericials, it`s just part of the gag.

    Second, you really want to piss Rocko/Hertzfeldt off? Watch this...

    Ok, lets run this through, since all of you have many poignant questions and statements towards me. First, I`m not Don, nor have I ever met him (too lazy to get off my ass to find him at the animation festivals) but I`m sure if he was here, he`d react the same way.

    Onto everything else:

    "hey rocko shut the hell up you retard no one gives a rats anus which is bleeding) about what you are saying except you and maybe Hertzfeldt"

    hmm......you do bring up a good point about how "no one gives a rats anus" and then go on to mention that the anus is also bleeding, and then you go on to say that I`m a "retard" so my response is: 42

    "Oh, rocko, now that you mention it, I should go and buy and rejected dvd right away, even though theres 203972109370213 copies internet wide, youve really convinced me to go out and buy a rare dvd as soon as possible! Geez where have I been?"

    oh really? ok, show me some of your work. Show me a 9-minute long "stick figure" animation you did, every single frame shot, and uploaded onto the internet. Remember, no computer help when you`re drawing your cartoon. I wait for your masterpiece to arrive.

    Yeah, I found nothing humorous about that clip. Very random. To be perfectly honest, I feel like I have just wasted 9 minutes tonight watching that when I could have done something better. Such as organizing my bills or watching paint dry. Everyone`s sense of humor is different though, so at least this guy seems like he`s entertaining some people.

    This short was actually nominated for best short animated film in the Oscars some years back. If you watch it carefully, you`ll realize that he`s commenting on how commercialism is ridiculous and that it`s pretty much a satire. It IS quite brilliant and he does all of his animation by hand. To say that using "stick figures" is stupid, well, sometimes the message is more powerful than the artwork and that the art shouldn`t distract. His work is good and I`d recommend checking out everything else he does.

    If you visit his website you`ll see he states he is not involved with those pop tart commercials. Or very fond of them either.

    I was just trying to get a rise out of people.
