So as time inexorably moves forward and Youtube policy shifts slowly suck the soul and creativity of its creators I find myself looking back on the old classic videos from the Newgrounds era and early Youtube which have aged like fine wine. So this thread is a general circle jerk of classic videos which if you haven't seen before, you should. Feel free to post anything I missed or maybe haven't seen.

Note: Homestar Runner gets a mention from me, particularly the Strong Bad Emails which I love hardcore, but I probably won't be linking vids here because there are just too many. Ditto that for Foamy the Squirrel (that is to say Neurotically Yours).

Banana Phone
This is what made me want to make this collection. I rewatched this tonight because I saw a reference to it in the TerraEarth Yearbook I made ( I was showcasing one of the great derailments of our time). The song by Raffi is catchy as hell by design and the skit is hilariously dark, a common theme amongst old school flash animations.

Salad Fingers
I saw the first episode of this while I was still in high school. The creepy ass setting and music and the bizarre nonsense plot was both funny in a "check this weird shit out" kind of way as well as pretty freaky. This series is over and numerous theories exist about what it was all about (MatPat's is my favorite but I'm biased towards him). The link here is all 10 episodes and if you want to just go WTF today, this is the video to watch.

Llamas With Hats
A bit more recent than the other selections here, Llamas With Hats is one that I didn't watch until just this year but it's actually pretty damned good. It's also interesting how the series devolves past episode 4, a representation of the creator's lack of a desire to continue which ends up creating something pretty artistic.

Charlie The Unicorn
EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS ONE. Literally. People who haven't seen it still quote this bitch. "Shun the nonbeliever! Shun! Shunnnn!" The first one is the main video for me. There are 3 others which I haven't yet seen so I linked to the whole series for the sake of it.

Dead Fantasy
Some of the earliest Monty Oum work I recall. Basically just a big old fight featuring some of the badass combat choreography and animation we would later get to really revel in in the later seasons of Red Vs Blue (which you should also watch if you haven't).



Well those are some of the main ones I know. What about you all?


=== Edit===

Ze End of Ze World
Oh and how could I forget this one! Classic!

How the shit did you forget the best flash ever?

Also missing There She Is!! on that list.

The Cloak is one of my favourites from FilmCow (Charlie the Unicorn/Llamas With Hats.)

Shoes is also a classic...

and the two that took me forever to find, Nightmare City.
