And the range of Toilet Puck's expressions keeps growing. The newest ones are at the top of the page, including the gaping mouths on the top right.
Yeah, these mouths will be pretty funny. I won't use this type of mouth often, but if it's thrown in every once in a while it could make an ordinary piece of dialog look funny.

I would like the character of Toilet Puck to have limitless expressions and lip syncs. In this case I did something completely different with his open mouth. It is inspired by a couple commercials I really like; the stop motion Wrigley's commercial spots done by Laika. The gum character has a mouth that opens on the side of his face like this. The other is the Cinnamon Toast Crunch "lick" commercial. I love that commercial!

A shot of a gag. Not sure yet if I will have Toilet Puck pull the menu out from behind his back, or if the shot will start on this pose when it cuts to Toilet Puck. The easier thing to do would be to cut to this shot and just animate a lip sync as TP talks. Animating the menu being pulled out from behind him could be tricky...but I like a challenge.

So I decided to stick this scene in episode 02. The idea that Toilet Puck dreams of being a Super Hero himself one day is an important theme, so the earlier I can establish his ambition the stronger his character is. And the earliest I can do that is the very next episode after his origin episode. I'll make sure TP expresses his desire to be a Super Hero several times throughout the series, maybe even reuse this shot a few times.
Whether the refreshing adventures of TOILET PUCK remains an internet cartoon or television broadcast, short 3 to 5 minutes or a half hour show, there is one long term story arc throughout the series; Toilet Puck's ambition to become a SuperHero himself one day. So this is a shot of Toilet Puck imagining himself as hero one day. I don't know which episode I will stick this in yet.

The blue female Superhero is not finished yet. I haven't decided who I want her to be yet. She will be in the same pose, but she will probably have more of a Superhero costume. Orgasma is done. And the green girl in the foreground is also done. I cheated with her design. I just used an older pic I did of a mermaid and changed her a bit. Since she is only in this one scene, and the only thing she will do is blink, I figured I would save a lot of time by reusing some old work.

I added a shot of the GIRL-SUPER-HERO-WASHROOM in this episode. A friend of mine told me, when he saw the intro to Toilet Puck, "Too many dicks, not enough chicks." So I'll fill this shot up with a few scantily clad female Super-Heroes to take care of that problem.

Here's a shot from episode 02. I know, I know, episode 11 was done before episode 02. However, if we went in chronological order this is the first episode with Super Stud, and this is the reveal of his Super-Hero-Chest-Crest.
