Out with the old, in with the new.

Posted by pthouse - January 9th, 2009

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.

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!


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?)

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

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.

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...

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

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

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.

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!

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

so no more.... i wanted to see it go up to 13 lol

i'm looking forward to that time traveler flash

So the series is finshed....wow 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!

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?

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

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

plz plz plz plz plz plz plz make more smash kingdom and bowsers kingdom plz plz plz plz pzl plz plz plz

plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz make more smash kindom , bowsers kindom ,and super mario bros z plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz

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.
