Super Mario Bros. Z has been cancelled
The day after Edd Gould's death, Alvin Earthworm posted a journal in deviantART that he won't continue his series, Super Mario Bros. Z, because of a few reasons. For one, he has a s***y job. He washes dishes at his work and he really lacks motivation working on recent episodes. Second, animation is time consuming. It takes awhile to make an episode and fans are becoming impatient.
Even though I'm sad and I wished for Alvin to have a good life and draw more furry art. That is until he released a preview of an episode that he was working on. Check it out here! At the end of the preivew, there was a question mark next to "The End". Does that mean it's the end or is he having second thoughts?
The series is not cancelled, a guy named Trevor Nestor contacted Alvin and is now making a SMBZ movie with an official kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/654955049/super-mario-bros-z-the-movie
Why Can't they Do the Super Mario Bros Z Series, Watch All the Episodes, see whats going on and make the rest of it with the help of Alvin Earth Worm the Creator of Super Mario Bros Z
I wonder if ScrewAttack couldn't try picking up the rights to this and finish it themselves?...
Nope, it's real. And his journal was posted days before mine.
It was the day before April 1st, either this is an ellaborate hoax, and he's faking the cancellation so that people would get off his back until the next episode is out, or he's serious and we may end up seeing a "revival team" pick it up for him.
A bit of a shame, but it's his decision. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!
Aww. I was wondering when he'd pick it back up. Whatever, at least the series ended on a high note.
um, you think?!?
Never realized . . .
I know what you mean >__> pots are the worst 'cause they get even deeper than pans & dishes . . . <__>,
PROTIP: If "The End" has a question mark, you can bet it's not actually the end.
Man, I use to love that series a few years back.
It's a shame to see that series end but all those reasons are legit enough as to why. At least now I can see his final animation which made him famous in the first place.
Yeah, he already called it quits because of all the above, and who can blame him? Even I wouldn't have the same motivation if I just wash dishes every single damn day. Glad that he finally posted his "final" animation of SMBZ.
I just really hope there will someone out there that will carry the torch and finish his work.
SMBZ will most likely be finished by fans, or be given the Starfox 2 Effect, as I like to call it.
He should at least write out what would happen. I'm sure he had some kind of plan, right?
he already said that he didn`t want to continue working on his animations a year ago, he even tried to erase everything that he created, since he was, quote: "Disgusted with what he had done" (regarding to his furry artwork) and "in the end he didn't like the fame" (regarding to his fame from SMBZ)
he just doesn't like the fame...
Canceling the series is a Dick move! Yeah I said it!
Too bad, the series is great. I think he will continue the series someday, but its probably far into the future when he got the time.
