10 Years of Foamy on NG

2013-01-06 10:11:50 by illwillpress

Today marks a full 10 years since the very first episode of Foamy was posted on NG. What does that mean? Not much. Just sayin', it's pretty cool. Thanks to all who have kept supporting Foamy over the years. Wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. New toon posted too!

Do you find it crazy that it's been that long?


2013-01-06 10:36:24

Are you going to do an anniversary episode in which Foamy complains about people getting older? Or are you going to just let it be?

illwillpress responds:

Nah, no anniversary episode. Besides, it's already been over 10 years off of NG. (Started in 2001) There's nothing wrong with growing older either, just as long as your mind doesn't shift into that shitty over-responsible, lame adult mode where you cease to have fun because you have to act your age. That shit irks me to no end. ^_^ So if I were to do a rant about "growing old", it would probably be from the perspective of growing lame.

It would make sense for there to be an anniversary cartoon, but since we all know JIM uses squirrel logic, the same can be said for there not to be an episode celebrating this momentous occasion. Whether one is made or not, I am glad Foamy has been around these past 10 years to keep me company in my moments of darkness, and I hope he will still be ranting and causing havoc for many more years to come.

Happy Birthday, Foamy!!!

It wouldn't be the same without you.

Your stuff was some of the first Flashes I ever watched.


2013-01-06 12:08:28

So do you even read helpful reviews anymore?

illwillpress responds:

Yep. still read em. :)


2013-01-06 12:32:37

It was really notalgic in a sense....time flies eh? Thank you for the shows.


2013-01-06 13:05:12

also ten years of pure awesomeness


2013-01-06 14:05:00

which is the reason why I kept sending you emails asking if you'd like Foamy to guest star in the next Newgrounds rumble game, to which you never replied... ah well.

congrats on the 10 years.. also, you should contact Mike from newgrounds staff, and pick up the video converter they are working on, your videos shouldnt be so fuzzy.

illwillpress responds:

Dang. sorry about not responding. Most of the emails I get are usually "Die, asshole" or "Stop making shitty cartoons" or some shit like that, so after awhile I just stopped checking PMs. >_<


2013-01-06 14:48:25

I feel so god damn old now, but hey that's a great resolve and milestone to have.


2013-01-06 16:06:58

Foamy needs a heart attack - after ten years of high strung bitching, he needs to be at the mercy of others.


2013-01-06 16:31:31

then that means 70 years of your life has been wasted


2013-01-06 17:00:56

keep going! :)


2013-01-06 17:30:41

congratulations on a decade of animations


2013-01-06 18:42:27

Can't wait to see how you celebrate 20 years.


2013-01-06 22:10:27

I hadn't realize how long you've been around, can't believe I've been watching you for ten years! It's been great watching you grow and market your work, I own a Pillsy shirt myself. Congratulations and keep up your awesome work.


2013-01-06 22:49:24

Hey, you're a racist, misogynist, unfunny nerd.


2013-01-07 01:28:12

Hey, it's true! I still gotta catch on all "old" Foamy eps, at least the ones uploaded at NG... Cheers!

But I'm confused, you just said it's been over 10 years and yet you wrote in a reply " Besides, it's already been over 10 years off of NG. (Started in 2001)", so? 2001 or 2003? Or is it about Neurotically Yours?

illwillpress responds:

Just meant it's been 10 years on NG. first cartoon posted on NG for me was on 1/6/2003, so that's what I meant. Besides, I was doing comic books for the series in 2001-2002, so animation didn't really get going until late 2002. So there wasn't really anything for me to post on NG back then.

I've been a fan since I was 9 :) Glad I got to follow for the entire ride!


2013-01-07 14:21:24

Good job Foamy, have some nuts.


2013-01-07 16:27:42

Hell to the yes. Keep up the awesome ranting. I especially liked your newest rant about violent games. Really hit close to home, I get alot of shit for being a gamer in outback germany. GO NUTS.


2013-01-07 19:03:11

I had a button of Foamy wishing that you choke with a biscotti.
I really love that button.


2013-01-07 19:25:19

I have had enough with people saying that Foamy sucks, it doesn't, you give the preteens what they want, big titted sluts and animals which can talk, but they just keep taking and giving you back nothing but hate :(.

illwillpress responds:

I wouldn't worry about it. I've kinda learned to ignore the hate over the years. I can't please everyone, So i wont even try to. Some people just need to vent if they dislike something. Let 'em. I do it every episode. :)

Major congrats and happy anniversary to the lord and master!

Congrats! I've been a huge fan ever since you came out over 10 years ago. You've been with me through high school, college, and even medical school, which I haven't finished yet. However, I thought squirrels only lived for about 20 years. Does that mean Foamy is going through his mid-life crisis soon? :D


2013-01-10 04:30:39

Have to agree with BoobMarley. Tired of listening to ya rant and rave. Tired of your lack of real investment into the community. At first, I was really happy for you! I still am, but it's getting ridiculous. Seriously, this STARTED a decade ago.

I'm not a great animator or illustrator. But I draw every day, study my shit, and I know an old hat when I see one. Please...I think you've gone through an amazing journey, and that's why you're back again. Found some kind of resolve...but you can do more....you can do better.....foamy is okay. But surely you have new ideas, new characters, new love.

I'm sorry if you think this is hate-mail, you can delete my comment. Just...please......new grounds. Break NEW GROUND.

spellcheck says, "Did you mean News Hounds?"


2013-01-11 23:49:39

Thanks for all the hard work Ill, love the toons, love the rants, love the humor. I get tired of hearing the negative comments that seem to be just troll bait and nothing more. It's almost as if you either love Foamy, or you can't put two cognitive thoughts together well enough to write some constructive criticism. For the sorry sour pusses that piss and moan every post 'Fuck your landscapes!'

Congrats on a decade, here's to another! (^_^)/*


2013-01-13 18:42:56

Gratz :D


2013-01-14 14:55:53

I didn't realize these cartoons were still being made! First Foamy I watched was Foamy Rants II and they still have the same charm that made me fall in love with them 10 years ago.

Obviously the drawing is much better, but the animation still seems a little static; I'd like to see more frames, especially when Foamy is flailing his arms about. Other than that, I'm glad to have rediscovered this series and immensely happy you are still making them.


2013-01-14 22:44:58

You are awesome and will always be that way ^_^ congrats


2013-01-15 14:54:17

I don't like your vids terribley, but you really kept going with it, eh>


2013-01-20 15:36:37

Time flies. Next year I'll have been watching foamy rant for 10 years. :)
Looking forward to the next 10!
