Western Animation: Neon Knome
was an 11-minute animated short created by Ben Jones
as part of a popularity contest hosted by [adult swim]
, with the winner being green-lit for a full series. The story focuses on the life of a young man named Horace who, as a child, discovered a small furry creature in a drainpipe and decided to take it home. He named it Alfe and raised it himself along with his twin brother Roba who looks nothing like him at all. One day, Horace finds a gigantic rollerblade sitting smack dab in the middle of the yard and proposes that they get rid of it, as it is a serious violation of their lease. Thus begins their wacky and utterly bizarre adventure through a psychedelic world that appears to have been made entirely with Flash.
Unfortunately, Neon Knome
did not win the contest, (having lost to another show called Yappy Broads
but the pilot can still be seen in full here
), however, it was picked up by Cartoon Network
as The Problem Solverz
, according to this Adult Swim bumper.
