Done and done! Here's hoping more popular sites help out starving artists like this Emporium thingamathing. OK, so John K isn't exactly starving, but I'll still flick some coins into his hat.

Whoah, I have a Flash file of this saved from the 90s, but the frame rate and sound quality on this one is SO much better!

Release all the old Goddamn George Liquor Program shorts spruced-up like this and I'll buy 'em all!

What format is the video in? Is it crippled with DRM?

The four of us at Boing Boing said...

It is an mov file. There's no DRM. Nothing for sale on the Boing Boing Digital Emporium has DRM. That's why we started the Boing Boing Digital Emporium. -- to offer non-DRM stuff.

This file requires QT7, which Apple refuses to release for Jaguar, my OS of choice. Please post this requirement so peopel don't buy files they can't use.

Great Christmas flick, wish you could find the Christmas presents on this like the original Flash cartoon.

DOWNLOADED! What a treat - much smoother than the original Flash version from 8 years ago!

Just downloaded this! Never saw it before so always so excited to see something new (even if its old new, if that even makes sense) from John K. I love you John:) Let me come by again and we'll have a drawing session and jam on guitar!

Thanks, guys! A nice Christmas treat. By the way, it plays fine on my Linux box using mplayer!

Horrible. Much like the "lost episodes" of Ren & Stimpy, John K's more recent material features nothing more than puerile, misogynistic humor. Don't waste your dollar. Hell, it's not even worth watching for free on YouTube.

The free VLC player works with this and codec-defying files.

ha ha great! I remember wanting so hard to see this when it came out but it cam eout but for some reason i had am impossible time downloading it on my parents' piece o crap computer. then when we got a new computer trying to watch it was one of the first things on my agenda. however, the toon was no longer available. i was so sad. But now I'm so happy. i think you just undid years of inner anguish. I can now love again. All this for a only measly dollar. Happiness ain't free but it sure is cheap. Thank You John!

Hm I am disappointed, lacks substance. I wish John K would lay off the whole sexy girlies thing and go back to genuine cartoon storytelling with some substance like in ren and stimpy or the yogi bear series. The whole jimmy drooling over sody pop and elf girl thing is a poor substitute for creative substance. As a female fan of a lot of john k's earlier work, it's hard for me to appreciate his latest work.
