Web Animation: A Father Son Story
A Father/Son Story is a series animated in Go Animate by Youtube user seinfeldspitstain. It tells the tragic story of a large father and his small son. The series is set in reverse order, showing the stories of each family member and each deaths.

A Father/Son Story provides examples of these tropes:

  • Accidental Murder: Large Father accidentally pushes his wife on a standing screwdriver lying straight up on the ground, impailing her face.
  • Aerith and Bob: Small Son, Large Father, Average Sized Mother, and... Kelvin?
  • Asshole Victim: Kelvin was killed in the hallway by a stray screwdriver.
  • Back to Front: Each episode is a prequel to it's predecessor. The episode will reveal what might have happened the episode before and each characters' intentions.
  • Big Bad: Kelvin is revealed to have kicked off the plot at large as the story goes further back.
  • Bitter Sweet Ending: Even though Large Father and Small Son burn to death, at least they burn together.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Small Son actually has the shortest origin segment.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: After getting fired, Large Father goes to a bar and orders five vodkas. This catches Kelvin's attention.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason for Small Son and Kelvin's behaviors are the deaths of their mothers. Kelvin's legitimate mother died and hates his father for having an affair with Average Sized Mother.
  • Flashback Nightmare: Large father has nightmares about the war. upon revealing this to Kelvin in a bar, he is hired to murder his father.
  • Hero of Another Story: Large Father and Average Sized Mother in the first two videos, whose stories wind up getting told in the later parts. Anti-Villain Villain Protagonist of another story in the former's case, really.
  • Jerk Ass: Kelvin is a rude kid who hates his parents, makes rude comments to anyone, bullies Small Son. He doesn't care because his parents were dead. And he is the one to blame.
  • Meaningful Name: Large Father is a father who is large in his son's eyes. Small Son is Large Father who is as unusually small as a toy. Average Sized Mother is reasonably smaller than her husband and larger than her son.
  • Posthumous Character: Average Sized Mother, for the first two videos. In her and Large Father's videos, she's present, though.
  • Stylistic Suck: This tragedy is animated in Go Animate.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Who killed Kelvin?
