The Pit _ What really happens to Mario when he falls into a hole. -source: Dash Coleman

Good gracious this is such a great idea and wonderfully executed ! I'm surprised I've never seen any one else explore this idea! I love seeing the little details in the pic.

It looks like Mario really has to go through hell when he falls into a pit, although I'm kinda surprised one of Bowser's incarnations isn't down there.

I wonder what happens to Mario when he hits the flag at the bottom of hell?

How many of you good folks, 90 kids and other real cartoon amateurs still remember the famous cartoon aired by Disney and named "Recess". It was the best of all the school related cartoons at the time, and it was translated to many languages including arabic without losing any of its magic and gags.
"Recess is an American animated television series created by Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere (credited as "Paul and Joe") and produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. The series focuses on six elementary school students and their interaction with other classmates and teachers. The title refers to the period of time during the school day in which children are not in lessons and can spend time outside with friends, known as recess in Canada and the United States. One of the main features of the series is how the children form their own society, complete with government and a class structure, set against the backdrop of a regular school." Wikipedia

God how I am nostalgic about this things. The show was like a friendly sociological book about the sociology and behavious of kids inside schools, with all of the spontaneous stuff that makes  children.

 "Recess portrays the lives of six fourth graders as they go about their daily lives in a highly clichéd school environment. The students of Third Street School have set up a microcosm of traditional human society complete with its own government, class system, and set of unwritten laws. They are ruled by a monarch, King Bob, who has various enforcers to make sure his decrees are carried out. The little society has a long list of rigid values and social norms that imposes a high expectation of conformity upon all the students.

Recess is illustrated to be a symbol of freedom — a time when children can express themselves and develop meaningful relationships. Most episodes involve one or more of the main six characters seeking a rational balance between individuality and social order. They are often defending their freedom against perceived threats by adults or social norms. The group's leader, T.J. Detweiler, tends to have the most complete vision of this struggle, though even he has times when he inadvertently leads the group too far toward an extreme of conformity or nonconformity.

The show's introductory music, art design and style often evoked the feel of prison escape movies such as The Great Escape, and the playground hierarchy and school administration were often depicted in ways that played homage to common themes in such films." Wikipedia

Sure they ain't showing like those shows these days anymore.. too bad!

»Cummulus & Nimbus is a, let's say … lengthy 5 second project.«
We had this idea for a character, Cummulus. He was meant to be a mascot, something funny for our reel. But the longer we thought about what he could do, the more gags and characters we came up with and the whole thing grew into a fake cartoon intro thingy.

A 1 minute animation set against a photographic background, following the life of one little girl. Music taken from Yann Tiersen's Amelie soundtrack.
Tim McCourt: That was great, it communicates a whole life cycle and has emotion in it, and yet it's so short. Top story telling.

Animated Review: Lovely and sweet animation Amy. It looks great with the photographic elements.
