Wow, so this has pretty much had it's run already on Youtube and Newgrounds, getting well over 2 million views across both sites...figured I should throw it up here anyway.

This was a lot of fun to make, combining my love of Watchmen with my love of saturday morning animation and synthpop.

Yes, the music is written and sang by me can probably tell.

If you haven't already seen this - please enjoy.

"Strong together, united forever, they're the best of friends.. but when troubles about, you'd best watch out for the.."Saturday Morning Watchmen by ~Harry-Partridge. A brilliant intro combining two storytelling opposites with some very funny in-jokes. ( Featured by Age2003 )

Sir, as a not-so-serious person loving serious comic books, I was simply in AWE with your 'Saturday Morning Watchmen' and 'American Akira'.

Not long ago, I have discovered CEREBUS the AARDVARK and went through about half of the 300 issues, and just started to wondering if you could do a similar little 'adaptation' of Cerebus? I can JUST see it as one of those 1960s or 70s Hanna-Barbera cartoons (you can also, of course, refer to 'The Ant and the Aardvark').

I can JUST see it: opening credits with proper merry music and choral singing; Cerebus running away from guards with stolen apricot pies (NOT apricot brandy of course) and running from girls like Jaka or Astoria who want to kiss him; Cerebus becoming a Great Wizard of Iest (NOT a Pope of course); Cerebus fighting Cirinist bandits with bare hands (Kung Fu would be a must for a 70s cartoon, right?); Cerebus going to the Moon shot from a large cannon and meeting the Judge who tells him silly jokes. And so on! Let me know what you think of it, especially if you know Cerebus at all (if not, check it out) :]

So, you made this? first time I watched this I actually thought this was legit. :XD:

Nite Owl likes to party?.... so... he's like... Pinkie Pie?

Sad thing is... this is probably the only time we'll ever see the Watchmen animated. Don't get me wrong, this was good... but still.
No matter how many times I watch this, I can never stop laughing. :giggle:
Great job.
