Merry Christma- YES I KNOW IT'S MARCH.
Feel free to ignore the video and come back next December.
I can't believe this thing took me 3 months either. Ah well, it's finally done.
As usual Flash was having hiccups (Altough strangely it's this quiet part that caused the trouble, not the much more intense and chaotic climax) so I had to cut it up in two... Or three since this was already split before. Whoo, three parter, which this as the boring inbetween. Have fun and no worries, the final segment will arrive in an hour, not another 3 months.

Music used from Christmas Carol, Twisted metal and 007 legends.

Whoa! That robot is totally crazy! :O
And who'd have believed so many things had Santa designs on them...?
And who'd have believed Santa might have the batteries to save our heroes...? :XD:

Haha, I love these jokes. Though that last joke about the bullet proof spaghetti sauce was pretty weird.

yeah, ore an "excuse why things happen" rather then a proper joke, so kinda awkward.

I love all the random things with pictures of santa on them.  Its one of those beautiful cases where everything goes wrong in just the perfect way.

You may want to consider rolling backwards to an earlier flash, I've heard that at CS6 and later they got really buggy, even some industry pros stick to older more solid versions of flash for their work.

Otherwise you did a good job with this one, your fight with Santa may as well have been a sumo match with all the weight getting thrown around!

I think that the ad-libbing jokes help since swift on the spot humor may be crude at times, but tends flow more naturally than strictly adhering to the script.

Actually I already use an old Flash, usually either cs3 or Flash 8
Did try a few later Flash programs at work, but wasn't impressed.
And your story doesn't help either then, heh.

Depends on what kind of comedy you do with the adlibbing and who's doing it I guess.
Many sketch artists like Monthy Phython and Rowan Atkinson hate addlibbing because sketches require a strict focus on the message/ punchline.

But yeah, in this episode's case, it's so visual and so depending on the exact situation characters are in that some elements were impossible to foresee while writing the script, so in here it was vital to make things up on the spot.

In that story I think that the company was sticking to CS4-CS5, occasionally using the later CS6 but not often due to how often it'd crash.
Google, Garrys Mod, Flash, why is it that so many "updates" end up reducing a programs stability or adding features that nobody wanted?

Newer Flash programs are supposed to have a better "tweening" feature thats more smooth, otherwise I'm not sure what Adobe changed really. I've been meaning to ask you what version of Flash you use since I'm thinking about getting into it myself, but now I know! But, that brings me to wonder what your job is, not necessarily who you work for, but it sounds cool if it involves using Flash.

You're right with that, in some cases ad-libbing just makes production time longer, it just all depends on who\what you're working with. 
The crew at Monty Python certainly knew what they were doing with their films still being remembered and rented to this day.


Thats interesting to hear, back with older Looney Tunes cartoons and other stuff of the time the scripts were a bit "loose", with storyboards dictating most of the action. Writing visuals is a bit more complicated than executing them.
