Right Said Fred

Description

Well, here it is at last - five years in the planning, and about four months in the making, I have finally completed the animation of "Right Said Fred"
Based on the classic comic-song by Ted Dicks and Myles Rudge, sung by Bernard Cribbins.

Featuring a return by Cribbs and Fred, the Cat & Dog Busy Buddies Odd-Jobs duo - and a special introduction for their friend and workmate, Charlie.

As the story goes, these characters are assigned to the task of moving an unidentified but unwieldy piece of furniture (it could be a grand piano, it could be a large sideboard - it's not actually stated what it is... for our purposes, I went with a chiffonier)
Long story short... they don't have much luck...


I hope this proves to be a marked improvement from my old animation. I've been trying to improve my methods, and one of the most notable being the decision to embed head/face-animations in a graphic-symbol independent of the rest of the character-animation.
This is also animated at a more conventional 25fps instead of my former 15fps, to give smoother motion.

A sequel to the animated cartoon "Hole in the Ground"


(As before, I stress that the animation and characterisations only are my own work - the song was written by Ted Dicks, lyrics by Myles Rudge, sung by Bernard Cribbins)

Question: what is it that Charlie says after "If we remove the ceiling"?
