Web Animation Watch: More Simon's Cat, Llamas in Hats & Rocket Dog

Advances in technology and the spread of the internet has made it easier than ever for animators to get their stuff out there. This also means it's easier than ever for the good stuff to get lost in the crowd. How do you know what's worth watching? That's where we come in! Welcome back to Web Animation Watch.

Just days after we sang the praises of the adorable series Simon's Cat, the latest short was released. Pawtrait sees Simon attempt to take a picture of his new kitten. Simon's original cat however, has other ideas... Just as irresistible as ever.

 On the flipside, you couldn't get much more different from the wholesome adventures of our fave web feline than the output of FilmCow. Best known for Charlie The Unicorn they also bring us the totally insane (and decidedly dark) series Llamas In Hats. Featuring animation that is mostly pretty limited (save for some more advanced visual effects) the series relies on the brilliant scripts. If you love Adult Swim style shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, you'll likely enjoy this. (NSFW)

Cartoon Hangover is one of the go-to destinations for high-quality animation shorts on Youtube. It's been knocking out some quality stuff for over a year, with plenty more sure to come. Among their highlights is this glorious piece from last year- Rocket Dog from animator Mel Roach.
