Dancing With The Stars

RaySpecial thanks go to reader “Truth,” who put the idea of Nintendo + Dancing With the Stars on my mind, and also to reader “Brawler08” for helping me realize this comic’s potential while playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Nothing makes me more giddy than playing as Jigglypuff and dancing my way to victory in Smash Bros, so just the thought of putting her unnaturally cheery eyes in a comic made my day.

    LOL! This is great guys. I think you really captured the Nintendo feel w/ this one. 🙂 Corny but made me chuckle and that’s all that matters.

    Oh, and AMAZING job lighting up the text. It was simple, but really changed the way the text looked.

  2. FluffyPanda says:

    Wow. I like this a lot. The detail in panel 3 is great. I hope this doesn’t mean you’ve been fired 😉

    I think that the more subtle, situational jokes work really well in your comic. Sometimes you don’t need a traditional punchline to get the joke across.

    NCG

    Very cute. I’m glad I saw that show those few times with my ex and am able to appreciate this joke a bit more.

    Speaking of dancing, if you haven’t already checked it out, take a look at this:

    not so funny comic dude…

  5. steve-ohs says:

    I’ve never seen the show, but this is a great comic. It is a really cute, and drawn amazingly. and it made me laugh.

  6. Loved it. I think with stars like that I would actually bring myself to watch the show.

    Last panel = great desktop background.

    Nu, I’m not suggesting more work….or am I?

  7. sheppy says:

    I hear Dancing With The Stars and I always think of the Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction skill point where you have to use the groovatron X number of times in the Asteroid Belt…

    I know what it referenced but I’m forever tainted…

  8. roadjcat says:

    I seem to be the only one that actually watches Dancing with the Stars, and I don’t know like half the celebrities, so I just root for the professional dancers that I know. XD

    Anyway great comic. I really don’t have that much to say about this one though. Maybe I’ll think of something later…:)

  9. tustin says:

    Wow…. That last panel just made it….

    Jigglypuff really is dancing with a star!! *badum-tish!*




    I thought it was funny! 😀

    Great Comic Guys! 😀

  10. Loooca says:

    “who is not only cuter than Kim, but also twice as useless”

    Ahahaha, so true.

    This comic is adorably cute — No, it oozes cuteness with the pretty graphics around Stafy and Jigglypuff, the sparkling text and the detail in the panels with the stage in the background. Great job.

    (And I want a Stafy to keep for my own. Hmph.)

  11. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Great comic guy(s)! I personally haven’t seen the show, but I get the joke anyway. It was really cute! Nice job, Ray (and perhaps Tim)!

  12. Rokai says:

    Mario Finale!!!
    Poor Jigglypuff.

    If you spent a lot of time on this comic: It’s really good.
    If you didn’t: Yeah It’s really nice.

    Also, the last panel would be a good wallpaper indeed (this word’s good).

  13. John says:

    I hate you

  14. Hikarusa says:

    not so funny comic dude…

    Made me laugh.

    Also, are Tim and Ray gonna enter the show together? *is looking at the banner*

  15. Tacos says:

    Awesome. I don’t watch the show at all, but the idea of Jigglypuff and Stafy dancing just makes me laugh.

  16. lwelyk says:

    pretty good comic guys. I like the goofiness.

  17. tustin says:

    I hate you

    Awww… I hate you too. <3
    Let’s all come together in a nice big group fight! *hug*

    sorry. 😀

  18. Lozaiah says:

    It’s… uhh.. cute..

    Can’t relate though, I don’t watch Dancing with Stars.

    The 2P Start logo looks out of place for some reason.

  19. CKcheeseboy says:

    Not bad, but not great. (NBBNGCG?) Great artwork though.

    You even (sort of) followed the formula, hitting 2/3 of it within the first panel.

  20. I probably would’ve liked it better had I known who Stafy was. But Jigglypuff made me laugh and it looked really nice.

  21. chief1185 says:

    that was good!

  22. D3vin says:

    Very funny! Too bad your logo shrank in the wash (looking at the Tim and Ray) though. 😉 You should have had ’em riding on the Star like a Warpstar (that calls for another copy and paste from my logo from my comic….) Don’t worry, My next comic will come soon enough…

  23. Ray says:

    Too bad your logo shrank in the wash (looking at the Tim and Ray) though.

    I was trying to replicate the Starman’s eyes – not sure if ever came off quite right….

  24. LoganXZ says:

    i thought that was pretty obvious, just out of place for the context of the comic. Though I don’t know what could have gone there instead without investing even more time into the comic making process as the logo for the show’s elegant, but not imitable for this medium.

  25. roadjcat says:

    Too bad your logo shrank in the wash (looking at the Tim and Ray) though.

    I was trying to replicate the Starman’s eyes – not sure if ever came off quite right….

    I think it looks fine. That’s what I thought of when I saw it, so mission accomplished I suppose.

  26. shadowkid92 says:

    nice graphics! i think the last panel would be great for a desk top was there a joke?

  27. roadjcat says:

    Oh, and apparently it’s official now. I am the only one here that actually watches the show. W00t for me!

  28. D3vin says:

    Too bad your logo shrank in the wash (looking at the Tim and Ray) though.

    I was trying to replicate the Starman’s eyes – not sure if ever came off quite right….

    Looking at it from across the room it does, But siting as close as I am to my monitor, I first noticed the tiny, tiny Tim and Ray, but now that you mention it, It does. It is like some wacky subliminal message or something.

  29. Anon says:

    I was trying to replicate the Starman’s eyes – not sure if ever came off quite right….

    It sorta does…if you squint….

    A triumphant return from last weeks comic, methinks.

  30. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    who is not only cuter than Kim, but also twice as useless!

    That line cracked me up. Speaking of which, the dojo said that Stafy would burst into flames if he was attacked. The only problem? The first hit usually knocks him off the stage, or he just walks off on his own! Has anyone actually seen Stafy’s hidden power?

  31. Gadoink says:

    lol, thats cute! (never thought id hear MYSELF using those words to describe ANYTHING….)

    and for panels 2 and 4, did you use Brawl as a referance?

  32. Gadoink says:

    sorry for the double post… but i was reading throught the other comments and i saw something….

    Hah! Very nice! Makes me want to Brawl again…
    Damn I wish I was back in high school beating all those sore loser freshman with Luigi. XD

    ahem. what do you mean ‘sore loser freshmen’? WE ARE NOT SORE LOSERS! im a freshman and im really good at brawl. im really good with snake and sonic, and i know people who cant really use snake, and i just own with snake.

    FRESHMEN ARE AWESOME!

    at my school there are:
    Freshmen
    Sophomores
    Juniors
    Seniors
    Freshmores (ask me!)

  33. Ray says:

    and for panels 2 and 4, did you use Brawl as a referance?

    Yep – nothing does Nintendo characters better than Smash Bros, so it’s the perfect reference material – especially considering the fact that you have nearly fully-posable models to work with yourself.

  34. dj75728 says:

    Whoa! where have I been. Darn college >.< . Oh well, NCGs!

  35. Truth says:

    Pretty good comic. Would have been funnier to have had R.O.B. in there doing the robot! Also, thanks for mentioning me!

  36. Gadoink says:

    you know, if you squint, tim and ray actually turn into ovals and DO look like the starmans eyes. not bad!

  37. RedVinnie777 says:

    ya know guys this one pisses me off. jigglypuff is my favorite character! how dare you put her in such a comic! u should have put kirby in it instead.

  38. Tacos says:

    ya know guys this one pisses me off. jigglypuff is my favorite character! how dare you put her in such a comic! u should have put kirby in it instead.

    but kirby couldn’t “Get Jiggly with it”

  39. DrOswald says:

    Jigglypuffs lips look weird. She normally doesn’t have any.

    P.S. Don’t be the person who points out that a jigglypuff can be male as well as female. Everyone hates that guy.

  40. Narnian says:

    I suppose the cheezy-ness works with the “Dancing with the stars” theme, but I still didn’t find it very funny. Not my favorite comic, but nice art. You haven’t been slacking off with your “real” job, have you?

  41. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Wierd. For a few minutes, underneath Ray’s blurb, it said, “Email this comic.” But now it’s gone.

  42. Tim says:

    Wierd. For a few minutes, underneath Ray’s blurb, it said, “Email this comic.” But now it’s gone.

    Yes, yes it is.

  43. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    OBJECTION! If I recall correctly, Tim, you had nothing to do with this comic, according to Ray. But then, why does your comment state that you are the author? How do you explain this massive contridiction?

  44. Tim says:

    I am the AUTHOR of 2P START! Plus, I did help Ray with the wording a bit…

  45. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Ah, I see. Never mind then. :mrgreen:

  46. Gadoink says:

    Jigglypuffs lips look weird. She normally doesn’t have any.

    those arent lips, those are just a lining effect. if you look those are everywhere on jigglypuff and stafy

  47. tustin says:

    I am the AUTHOR of 2P START! Plus, I did help Ray with the wording a bit…

    So why doesn’t Ray get Author status as well? (I always wondered this, since after all, he does do quite a bit of the work as well…)

    tustin, you have a very good point there. i know i have no part in this conversation, but i just wanted to say that. there. i said it.

    My guess is that WordPress only allows one person’s account to show up as “Author”, which would be the admin account (or something to that effect).

    Or it just makes Tim feel superior.

  50. Tim says:

    CKcheeseboy is right, I think I tried to change it at one point to include Ray as well, but I couldn’t figure it out. Maybe I’ll give it another go.

  51. tustin says:

    I don’t know anything about WordPress, nor how your implementing the various things in WordPress, but I found this…

    And this….

    Just trying to help. 🙂

    That wouldn’t be true though, Ray is the Illustrator/Artist. He just takes your material and makes it visual. Or something like that…

    Something kinda related(at least to my latest dabbling in an guest/fan comic), Would Tim kill Ray if he took the last Dr. Pepper?

  53. Ashley says:

    Great comic dude

  54. Lava says:

    Hey what’s going on with the podcasts guys? None of them are working, I’m just getting a “page not found” message.” Last night it was giving me a pageload of code that would freeze up my browser if I let it try to load it all. I’m trying to finish the latest podcast. Peace! (None of the other podcasts seem to be there either.)

    BTW, I can’t say I really understand the comic, but I love the character art! Those two are super cute! (Jigs is pretty awesome in Melee.) Yeah, and about your last podcast… just as Tim is hating on the new Mario baseball game, while loving the old… I’m kind of that way with Brawl and Melee. Though I don’t think Brawl is broken or anything… it’s sooo much less awesome then Melee in terms of exciting gameplay. Everyone always talks about the features, but what about the fighting?? I give it a big “Meh.7”

    (Sorry I had been waiting Brawl for soo long that the wound it left in me may never fully heal. I will be MUCH more skeptical of any future Smash releases.)

  55. Gadoink says:

    YAY! THE SITE IS WORKING!
    And why can’t I download the iTunes version of the podcast?
    I’m playing the m4a version…
    …on iTunes for some reason…?!
    ROFL that’s abnormal…

  56. Gadoink says:

    you know what should be a wallpaper? panel 3 of the recent CAD comic.
    http://cad-comic.com/comics/20080908.jpg
    ive ripped that panel as a seperate pic, but it’s not enough.
    Lucas punching Zeke’s head off, LOL

  57. Shuryou says:

    Can you please turn the last panel into a wallpaper? Wide screen if possible. I adore it.

  58. Leif Coleman says:

    Jigglypuff wins at Brawl. =D

  59. chriskatching says:

    WHoooo! HahahaHa

  60. elah says:

    The wallpaper for this amazing comic was going to stay my desxtop background for several years…but GX Echidna’s “Chibi Blaze” wallpaper just barely edged it out.

  61. aghhdjgdjkfhgtahdugihila; says:

    It’s good, but it’s spelled “starfy”

    • CKcheeseboy says:

      Well, when this comic was first posted, the Starfy game wasn’t out in the US yet, so they just went off of his name from Brawl, which is Stafy.

  62. Jaxin says:

    You could’ve also used a Starman (Earthbound) or a Starman (Mario) instead of Starfy.

  63. yoshikirbyman says:

    um… wouldnt kirby kill staRfy if he sees that? get rid of jigglypuff and add starly BAM! you get danceing with the stars!

  64. Mirby says:

    I would watch that show if game characters were on it. What other combinations could there be? Diddy and Dixie?
