First, I must say what a pleasure it is seeing your cartoons here. Your art is fabulous, and your jokes are hilarious and original.
The music and voices also are extremely well done.
To be completely honest, there were only one or two problems I'm seeing here.
First of all, at times the outlines don't look smooth. They tend to "jut out." Where the head and neck meet, the line of the neck continues a little onto the chin area. Don't beat yourself up about that, we all struggle with this. :)
I also recomend Not using so much gradient for the shading, and instead, to compliment your simple style, have simple-or no-shading.
Otherwise, you did an outstanding job. Keep up the good work. I hope to see more of your great cartoons very soon.

Sometimes it is hard for animators to come up with new and interesting ideas for animations, especially when it's such an annually repetitive subject like Christmas. However, this animation is new, and quite well executed; it's nothing short of what is to be expected of an animator that has a history of good Christmas animations.

The technique of the artist is really what shines in this animation. His lines are clean, his tweens aren't frantic, and his control of lighting techniques - especially during the fire sequence - gives the animation a very polished look. The fbf animation has improved markedly over the last few years, and it's really nice to see an animator that is comfortable using both tween and fbf methods.

The voice acting and music were excellent and well mixed. I never got the sense that the music was overpowering the animation, and the casting of a solid voice actor really helped.

Some might critique the length of the animation, saying that it is too short and doesn't deliver enough content. But I feel that the decision on the length was a good one, because it doesn't lapse into that awkward length where the jokes feel stale. The animator did a good job, I think, of realizing that jokes about everything going wrong have the capacity to get stale very quickly, and so he really focused on three sections of things going wrong. Three is the perfect length to showcase the conflict, and then wrap things up nice with the antithesis at the end: "Everyone loves the telly." So while the length might cause people to dismiss this as a fluffy, inconsequential little holiday animation, I would like to praise the animator for making the right decision.


So, all in all, it's not the best animation I have seen from Edd; but it is a very enjoyable one, and one of the best looking animations I have ever seen from him.
