Since I probably wont be able to animate EVERY idea I want to for Neurotically Yours, I'll try some comics. They're "easier" & I can get more stories out there quicker. Would like to animate everything, but I'm just one person doing all this, so it's probably going to be impossible. But at least I'll have some stories down in case Netflix calls. (They won't call) :(

Yep, it's been 20 years of Foamy! On this day, September 10th, 2001. The very first Neurotically Yours comic was published! Cartoons soon followed, 20 years passed and there ya go. I generally don't do a bunch of celebrating due to the following day being Sept 11th, but I don't want to overlook everyone who has supported over the years. Some for the full 20! So honestly, this milestone is more about Foamy fans, not about me or Dawn. If there weren't folks supporting this, it would be a lot harder for Dawn & I to keep things going. (Probably impossible.) So thank you everyone for the support. Be it merch, donations, goodies, or simply spreading the world, sharing episodes or comic strips. Every bit has helped. And generally... the best way for me to thank people... is to... GET BACK TO WORK!!!!

C'mon! Can't start slackin' now!

Generally I don't make a big deal about anniversaries, as Sept 10th is the very first day that "Neurotically Yours" went live as a comic book. Of course 24 hours later all hell broke loose on 9/11, (I lived in NY at the time) so Foamy's anniversary always has this looming shadow of sorrow about it. So for the last 20 years I just kinda keep to myself rather than make a big deal about it.

With all that being said, and just in case I don't mention it on the 10th, thanks to everyone who have been supporting over the years. Viewers new and old have been extremely supportive, and it's appreciated. Usually the only way I know how to thank folks is by getting back to work to create new stuff.... which I'm gonna do... right now!


Though on a side note, Foamy & Germaine date further back. 1995 for Foamy & 1993 for Germaine, but generally weren't put together until the late 90's in a bunch of odd little doodles... which eventually became what it is now. So maybe I should pick a different date for an anniversary or something? Idk. It would probably be 23 years if I counted the doodles and sketches they were in together. Eh, whatever. Back to work!

Be civil & have fun :)

Been on Reddit for 7 years, so I decided to start posting there, but if you're already here, then there's probably no need to be there. Kinda just moving things around to less restrictive platforms as YT is ... well.... YT.

Have a lot of catch-up to do on Reddit, but I'll probably start fresh with a handful of comics/animations from the series and add new stuff as it's created.


Other than that, September marks 20 years of Foamy, so that's a thing. I tend to not dwell on stuff like that as Sept 10th 2001 was the day the first comic was released... the next morning sucked. So Usually I just work through it. Stupid humans ruining stuff.

Took YEARS, but I finally finished the HD upgrades for ALL the original episodes of Foamy! They are DONE!

Would have been done sooner, but I'm just one person, and all 260+ episodes had to be done individually. There's a lot of backend boring work that had to be done to make sure everything worked properly, and a lot of distractions from YouTube trying to monetize anything on the platform....which is dreadfully demotivating, but anyway.... all episodes retain their original aspect ratio. So 4:3 is still 4:3 and 16x9 is still 16x9. Next up is the reboot series, which is actually done. I just have to compile them into collections for folks. Same goes for those "Chibi-Sodes" & 4y-Records, Minion's Quest etc. Which will all end up in a different collection.

They will all be posted up on NG, but that'll be a slow roll, as I've already gotten crap for "flooding" the portal with "old content". Meh... they'll be available somewhere if you need a complete collection. Other than, support if ya can :)


Also managed to squeeze in some time for Pixel Art Foamy, which was fun to do. I'll probably try to do a bunch of the Neurotically Yours characters in Pixel Art form and maybe do a one-off episode or something. Just something different to keep things creative :)

'Cause I get bored with doing what I do sometimes, I tend to change things up a bit and tried out some pixel art animation for the Twitch streams. I don't generally work with pixels, but it's a pretty chill time just fillin' in boxes and seeing what happens :)


Other than that, work as usual :)

For those who may not be keeping up with Non-NG stuff, The Foamy Podcast, "Squirrels & Robots" is still going on with Episode 78 being posted yesterday (as of this post).

It's on YT, Spotify, Apple Podcast Google and the usual places.

It's a zero-income thing for me, but it's fun to do.

(Sponsors have been kinda sketch for my tastes, so I generally don't bother with them. Having Foamy push some energy drink on people doesn't "feel" right. Pilz-E maybe... but then, sponsors don't want a hyperactive squirrel running amok because he drank one of their beverages. So picky!)

So if you're supporting on Patreon, THANK YOU! (If not, that's fine too. Spreading the word that Foamy is still around helps more than you'd think. So Thank you as well for that) :)


(Obligatory links to digital comics and shirts and all that fun stuff below the pic for those who never read vod descriptions... which I don't do either for some reason.)

For those in The States, be safe out there. I want everyone to have the same amount of fingers tomorrow as they have today!

(I'm still just doing my usual doodlin' so stuff posted in the usual places)
