Half Full is a British surreal comedy web toon which follows the exploits of three characters: Billy, John and Susan. The show has a fairly eccentric release schedule (Though usually 2 part episodes are released about a month apart)

Typical stories involve exploring the themes abnormal love, musical numbers about Ninja love, pheromone harvesting and other wacky shenanigans resulting in ensuring hilarity.


The series can be found on Youtube, Newgrounds and on the main website.
