Out with the old, in with the new.

2009-01-09 13:55:38 by pthouse

That's right, you heard it from Raskin... Bowser's Kingdom is over. Each of us have a load of ideas for series and short videos, and it's making it really difficult to pick one to start with. I pitched all of my ideas to a friend of mine, asking him what I should work on for my independent study, which is basically a college course that you do whatever you want and get graded for it. He picked my idea for a story about a time traveler. So for this Spring semester I will be working extremely hard to belt out a short animated film and I probably won't have time for anything else. I'm not positive how long this cartoon is going to be, therefore I do not know how long it will take to put together. For all I know I may have to do a second independent study during next Fall semester to finish my project. This means it might be a long time before I submit anything to this here portal, unless Raskin works on a toon and I'm in it in some way. Well that's really all I have to say on that note, so thanks for all the well wishes and I'll keep you all posted on my progress with the flash movie I'll be working on.

Ok but when's the new one coming out?


2009-01-09 15:41:38

So are you and Raskin never doing anything together again? (Flashwise I mean0
Are you both working on a new series together or idependantly?
Also, I'm sure after Bowser's Kingdom you guys will come up with even better flash movies

pthouse responds:

What I was saying with this post is that Raskin and I each have our own ideas for series and stand alone cartoons to do, but we'd collaborate together. Like Raskin has a couple of ideas for series that he will animate and write, and I'd just be a voice, and I have some ideas as well, which I would animate and he'd be a voice in as well. Our ideas are seperate but we'd be working together on just about everything. My independent study project will be all me, and if I have a part that Raskin can voice for then that would work. Thanks for reading.

pthouse responds:

Yeah, I'm not about to spend money for a website since the series is finished. It's like $8 for a domain name for a year, and somewhere around $5 or more for space from the host.


2009-01-09 16:22:25

This post made me very sad face.


2009-01-09 16:29:34

I hope you don't get too many stupid fans here.


2009-01-09 16:39:03

I knew it'd be over after the movie.


2009-01-09 16:40:46

You probably heard my sorrow from raskin's page, but I wish Bowser's Kingdom could go on a teensy bit more. You will probably ignore me and won't reconsider your decision, because as far as I'm aware of, both of you were dead serious. Your own animations are something to be honored for, but turning simple Super Mario Sprites into comedy, is pure genius. Good luck to your new animation.


2009-01-09 16:47:14

I personally thought the Bowser's Kingdom series, although not as impressively made as other sprite movies on the site, was very entertaining. I'm glad for the run it's had.

However, I doubt you'll be able to keep this up forever. Some part of you will want to make another sprite movie, even if it's not Bowser's Kingdom or ever put on Newgrounds. At least, that's how I feel every time I try to quit and think of something entirely original. I'm still trying, haha.


2009-01-09 17:20:16

The series means nothing to me anymore.Thank you for loadingmy horrible day with even more misery.


2009-01-09 19:17:28


Don't be like Egoraptor and lie to us.

You should submit under a new alias and like start over.


2009-01-09 19:38:14

Hey, you guys had a good run. Never really a fan of sprite movies without too much action and a little too much talkin'; but you found a good balance. I salute your further creations.


2009-01-09 20:45:50

I'm glad BK is over. Not that I didn't like it, infact I really liked it and I always like to greet my friend Steve with a nice "*sigh* Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Steeeeeeeeeeve", but you ended with a bang with the movie and didn't overstay your welcome, so kudos! ^.^

Good luck with your future projects! :P


2009-01-09 21:26:40

It was a good idea for you guys to end the series with a high note. I'm excited to see what you two have planned next.


2009-01-09 22:06:47

Personally, I just watched your movies because you two have sweet voices, but whatever floats your boat.

Oh, and you should probably update your page, I guess.


2009-01-09 22:09:57

BK will be missed, but now we can see more than just Mario paradies. Can't wait to see some new toons :)


2009-01-09 23:09:36

dont kick out bowsers kingdome or just keep makin mario parodys like dat


2009-01-09 23:50:41

No U!


2009-01-09 23:59:52

Bowsers Kingdom had a good run, hopefully the new stuff will only get better.


2009-01-10 02:10:47

what I don't understand Is why don't you make other episodes in your spare time you know for the long time fans


2009-01-10 02:46:38

awww that sucks but at the same time you guys sound like you're moving on to possibly better things. I enjoyed the series greatly and wouldn't mind if at some point you guys revisited it or something but at this point...Good luck with all of your endeavors!


2009-01-10 04:23:57

Well, that's a shame. I adored the Bowser's Kingdom series and its spin offs, but I truly respect you two for making this decision. There's little chance of making a living off of this series, so doing your own thing is definitely the right way to go. But, I don't have to tell you that. I've also had to make a similar decision in the past. But, hey, that's life, right?

Now, I've seen some of these comments down here, and I gotta say, you guys should be ashamed of yourselves! Try to be a little more supportive, huh? Well, they'll understand when they're older, I suppose. Meanwhile, I'm beside you on this, and I expect good things from you both in whatever you do. As long as it's respectable, of course. Whatever the case, good luck!

2009-01-10 18:40:54

NOOO! bowser kingdom is over! :[ ah well.. what about super mario bros Z?

(sigh... i really loved bowser's kingdom series.. i wish there was more.. mabye a Sequal or parody.... can there be more like what happen next? like they got new jobs?)


2009-01-15 16:39:47

Why can't you make hand drawn Bowser's Kingdom?


2009-01-15 23:45:22

Haha I love all the people depressed over the end of Bowsers Kingdom.

Anyways good luck with your future projects, I really hope you continue sprite animation though since you were one of the few who could get people to enjoy a sprite video, and for the sprite video not to be some kickass fighting series like Super Mario Bros Z or Power star is even more amazing. But I really respect the choice you made and I'll be sure to check out your future projects ^^;

Deep down I hope it's a sprite video since they just to me are the best type of animation. But as you said, out with the old, and hopefully people will enjoy the new.


2009-01-18 00:06:00

Can't you people shut up and give Patrick and Andrew a break? It's natural that someone would eventually give up a series of a contribution people were fanatics of. Just like Alvin-Earthworm has to give up his series of SMBZ eventually. It doesn't mean they ditched aside BK, it just means it's time to create a new series of flash animations people may like. Just like Alvin might do someday. So at least do us a favor and quit bitching at Patrick and Andrew about not continuing the BK series... or the SK series...


2009-01-18 00:07:45

I forgot to add one thing. Just to let you know people have lives too instead of sitting near the computer animating.


2009-01-20 19:58:20

Well there goes one of the best to bad i loved it but it had to end sometime i wish you luck on everything you do in the future i hope to see more sprite comody so ya im sad now


2009-01-21 04:23:29

Good Luck, I respect your courage and hope to see the new stuff, maybe your new stuff might get you a few jobs in the field of animation, ever think about video game animation or just sticking with video/film? if film/video send your stuff to pixar or video game talk to microsoft gaming. I am curently taking classes in animation the spots are filling up very fast its kinda first come first served. I will contact my friends and see if any spots for animation are open. But its truly your desion I have a contact info to a person that can help you out if introsted or just wanna talk more send me a PM. Best of luck.


2009-01-26 05:03:28

Aw man, you have no idea how much I'm going to miss this series. I'm glad you cleared up that there isn't any plans for new episodes though. As I posted on Hal's blog, this is one of my favorite series' ever, and I don't want to see it go. However, I know what it feels like to want to do your own thing with your own original ideas. Not that BK isn't original, but since it's a satire of someone elses characters, it's full of inside jokes... and I'm sure you want to show off your skills to the broadest audience possible.

I'm really hoping that you'll make some shorts if any jokes hit you that require little animation with the characters from Smash and Bowser's Kingdom (I'm lookin' at you, Dedede) I think it's always cool to see old cartoons come back from the grave for a reunion, like for example The Powerpuff Girls, they just had a 10th anniversary episode or something, despite ending in 2004, and it was pretty good. (I'm a sucker for cartoons of those stylings) Mmm, I'm sure you will make a new one one day. Shh, I won't tell anyone.

All in all though, there's no point in doing things that bore you. Move on, focus on your craft, and I'll be sticking to your works like glue. I know the humor will be just as funny if not more, no longer bound to the boundaries of the video game universe. Keep it real, Jeff!


2009-01-27 16:31:20

I´m sure you are gonna have a LOT of hate mail or comments but anyway Lets try


2009-01-27 21:24:48

2009-01-27 23:06:13

i'm looking forward to that time traveler flash


2009-01-29 13:10:20

So the series is i thought there would be a better way to finish it rather than them saying i quit,but as the title said it is time to move on however if u ever would return to doing(which u prob wont),make a tribue to karete duo no.1!


2009-02-02 12:02:46

You guys planning on making more cameos for SMBZ though? I don't want the Bowsers Kingdom cast to die though, even if you guys ended the series, can we at least expect some cameos?


2009-02-04 22:46:50

:'( that was my favorite series on NG. but i understand, you dont sprite anymore. its cool.


2009-02-05 16:31:30

good luck Pat, u're gonna need it once ppl start bombarding you with pm's, begging you to make more sprite videos(


2009-02-06 08:52:15

2009-02-07 23:59:23

Like I said on araskin's post, I wish the best for you both, and have high hopes for your future projects. But there's also the fear that the era of video game parodies is coming to a tragic close... But that's a fear for the forums.


2009-02-08 10:51:18

Alright it's a shame that there won't come new episodes but if jeff and Hall are going to be replaced by new characters and the humor stays the same I don't see in why people are crying.
This could be a legendary new start!


2009-03-01 22:04:46

A great series has died...
Well, you wrapped it up well at least. Seriously, I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we'll all miss you and Andrew's extremely well-made sprite movies, but if you'd rather not make any more, that's ok.
Good luck with future work.


2009-03-18 11:59:05

Good luck on your time-traveler animation. You really shouldn't give up your Bowsers Kingdom series (I'm not trying to force you or anything). I'm sure the series has inspired many people today. It's gotten many laughs now and then. I hope the time-traveler animation will be a awesome one!


2009-03-18 12:22:18

I still want to know why you ended Bowser's Kingdom but another question I have is why your page and icon are still full of Bowser's Kingdom stuff. I mean, your icon is still Jeff!


2009-04-06 02:03:44

you've done great work and shouldn't have any regrets. good luck.


2009-04-16 05:16:14

2009-06-05 17:04:02

RIP Bowser's Kingdom (aka the South Park of newgrounds)

I just wish you could've ended Smash Kingdom as well as you ended BK. The newest Smash kingdom seemed like you didnt put a lot of thought into it and seemed more like a burden you were trying to get out of the way than a flash that you were supposed to have fun making, which is what making flash movies is really about.
