The Hole in the Ground

By
A Flash animation based on this old song, Hole in the Ground sung by Bernard Cribbins.

Introducing Cribbs the Cat and Fred the Dog, the Cat 'n Dog Odd Jobs team, this is one of my biggest Flash projects to date. It took about six weeks to complete!! :faint:

I've been trying out a few new methods of animation, using more layers for facial features, which is the most complicated part of any character animation!

As the story behind this short goes, the pair are working the road when this bloke in a bowler hat comes along and tries to shove his oar in, much to Cribbs' annoyance...

Cribbs, Fred and Blake the goat and this animation is Copyright © me.

Disclaimer: I observe that the song is not mine.
Hole in the Ground was written by Ted Dicks, with lyrics by Myles Rudge and is sung by Bernard Cribbins. It is used here only for non-profit purposes.

Update: Now viewable on YouTube here: [link]

why dont you do another music video but with right said fred or the laughing policeman?
DCLeadboot's avatar
Well actually, "Right said Fred" is on my to-do list... I just haven't got round to that one yet.
And it will feature Cribbs and Fred again, of course - and a horse called Charlie! ;)

Im looking forward to it. but what about the laughing policeman? I know its not sung by bernard cribbins but its a good song to use
DCLeadboot's avatar
I hadn't got anything planned on that one... :hmm:
Though I had considered a spoof on "When a felon's not engaged in his employment" (A policeman's lot from Gilbert & Sullivan)
Nothing is set in stone, though. :XD:
