One of the greatest animated pilots on CS-tv, you all are next level
Can't wait for the review. We need more indie animation project like these.
hey saber! and it really is :o
Cant wait to see you review it
I love how despite being so humanized they still make cat noises and still have some cat behaviors like their tails puffing up omg
The tails puffing up is one of my favorite details because it so damn accurate
One of said cat noises : 21:12
Rocky seems like the type of guy to unironically wield a sword and everyone thinks he doesn’t know how to use it until everyone is in danger and he actually is a master with it
That would fit perfectly for rocky
I think he'd be more like a guy who doesn't know how to use a sword and is accidentally good at it
@welp I can also see that
he brings a sword into a gunfight and still manages to win somehow... lucky devil
The fact that everyone's neck-deep in a firefight, and Rocky's just out here tripping balls
I love this comment so much
12:04 I hope Rocky, Freckles, and Ivy replace their semi-automatic pistol with a Colt M1911A1 because they won't last a day with that pistol. Rocky, Freckles, and Ivy should have a Colt M1911A1 beause it's the best pistol, 45 caliber and the best pistol against their enemies.
@Lexus Driver and WHERE are they going to get one of those? part of the MAIN premise of the show is that they're near broke.
@notawolfyet During this time period there’s even black market arms selling. Sure it’s gonna cost but totally worth it for Rocky, Freckles, and Ivy.
@Lexus Driver plus World War I surplus being relatively cheap and easy to get their hands on and then being able to afford a chopper they can keep on the car at all times.
I love how freckle goes batshit feral whenever he’s handed a gun like what a mood.
He's an American it's just how we work
@Sam Nuell isn't he Irish-American, thou?
@airam he still does have some American in him AND he lives in America so it counts 🤷🏽
That is not a mood to be proud of :')
@airam "I was born on Dublin street..."
16:26 I like that angry look Mordecai made at his henchmen it basically says “I’m surrounded by idiots”
15:18 I like also a scared look with hissing, which says "Water!"
It’d be more like acquaintances since they all work for Asa Sweet
The ear twitch absolutely sells this cat eventually betraying his "employers."
Absolutely Incredible. Well done guys 👏👏👏👏
Hi glitch :3
Heya, GLITCH! I love your Murder Drones series! Michael does a great job voicing N!
Ayo Glitch's here too!
Damn at 13:43 He must have had a lot of mental and physical discipline to not be startled enough by that explosion and reactively pull the trigger.
10:15 She is braver than she thinks... that look and claws would make anyone run away. And it quite reminded me of "28 Days Later".
I mean he is Mordecai
Rocky is a such a chaotic little theater kid and I love him! Also freckle being so nervous and containing so much chaotic feral energy is wonderful
THIS NEEDS TO BE A SERIES!!!!! I HAVE WATCHED THIS 1000 TIMES! ITS SO BEAUTIFULLY MADE!
bro read the comic, you will NOT be disappointed
I honestly feel like I relate to Freckle on a personal level sometimes. I'm that one person that tries to be the most mature person in their friend group, but every now on then, I let my inner idiot 5 yr old run wild to cure my boredom for a few hours. Whether it's doing something that I would usually find embarrassing, or going on a theme park ride I wouldn't usually ride, chaos will ensue one way or another
Freckle isnt letting an inner 5 year old out. He has emotional issues and deep instability masked by his usually calm nice guy demeanor. Like he tried to tell pepper, he has a burning raging fire inside that comes out occasionally, usually resulting in manic behavior and violence. That's why he got kicked off the police force, there was an "incident" during training. Most likely where he snapped and bad things happened.
@jordan hicks Yea, I kinda figured that. I just tried to put it in a less angsty way to better fit a friend group scenario, but still have a connection in a way. I’m sorry if I offended you or caused any confusion
@Harmony no offense taken, just wasn't sure if you had the right measure of our friend Freckle.
@jordan hicks Good to know 💜
It's so nice to see a non-game piece of media accounting for ammo!! Mordecai literally counting out the six bullets made me so happy, along with the non-infinite tommy gun!! Nice job!
This was AMAZING!!! Absolutely unreal job on this!
Haha if the Nostalgia Critic himself loves it, you know it must be amazing!
Didn't expect to see Doug Walker in here.
Wow! Never thought I’d see you here!
Video incoming with thoughts on it perhaps? Self-published animated shows seem to becoming more commonplace on youtube and the quality of lackadaisy is jawdropping!
I've been a massive fan of this ever since I saw the Webtoon. I LOVE THIS. I did not even consider that there was a CS-tv channel until I saw this. Instantly subscribed. Instant dono. Instant all of the above. I am super excited for anything and everything that comes out of this channel and I wish you amazing people the very very best! 💖😊💖
So glad this popped up in my feed when it did.
Thats a lot sir
That's gotta be the most I've seen donated 👏
Omg ppl like this are amazing
For someone who has never even heard of Lackadaisy before, this pilot really got me excited for what the comic was about. Rocky is definitely my favorite character, the way he went psycho was great. The animation is next level, best animation ever, nothing I've seen before even comes close to topping this. Keep up the amazing work, can't wait for more
You’ve definitely earned this
I love how everyone is freaking out in battle while Rocky is spitting Poetry and throwing bombs everywhere
Crazy amount of effort and love went into this, and you can tell even from the credits
Congratulations to the whole team, this is fantastic! Loved it, cheered me up very well ❤❤❤
Omg Hi Keke!! And yes I loved it too ❤️
Indie animation pour la gagne woooooo
Bravo to them!
Two minutes into the video I started crying. I adore hand drawn animation. It holds so much emotions and resonates with so much that that’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was 8 and seeing that people are still keeping it alive makes me happier than I thought I could be in my current situation. Thank you to you and your crew for keeping it alive.
Y'all know that feeling when a really good show you saw during your childhood ends? You know that pit of "it can't be over" "is that really it" "I don't want it to end". I'm going through all of it.
This pilot has so much personality and style it's incredible, and I really hope I get to see more. And making the character outlines visible was a nice touch.
I had a pretty good feeling that Michael Kovach would be involved in this jaw dropping pilot with his masterful voice acting and who knew that he would voice the most chaotic and lovable character?
I honestly love the animation! I can’t wait for this to come out soon! :D
I'll never not be grateful for being able to work on this incredible short. Fantastic work by the entire crew. BOOZE CATS!
I wouldn't had know about Hunicast until I discovered the crew for the Lackadaisy pilot making livestreams showing the entire process of the short.
I never knew you worked on this! It always seems like you're involved in all my favorite animated projects on youtube!
I would have never found out about Lackadaisy if it weren't for the Hunicast and thank god I did because this was just a masterpiece.
I wouldn't call it a short haha, it's the length of an actual 22 minute cartoon episode
Can’t wait to see more
Seeing the sketch lines around characters reminds me of old disney movies. Stunning job 🙌
Yeah, I'm trying to decide how I feel about them. They were added in intentionally, if you didn't know. And the Disney you're probably thinking of was in the 60s through the 80s when Disney was using the xerox process, where rather than the animation being inked nicely before going to coloring, they would effectively photocopy it, immediately getting outlines to paint, resulting in rougher animation.
This should get a official series or something. Its boiling with originality and pizzazz. Keep it up
No words can describe how much I enjoyed this such a lovely style of animation, SUCH A FUN SET OF CHARACTERS everyone who worked in this is truly talented and I want to give my full respect and apreciation to them
Can't wait for more
Damn....I like how they keep some of the sketch lines in the final project... this really show that they really work hard on their animation
I can’t get over how appealing this animation is. It’s got such a fluid, expressive and authentically hand drawn feeling to it
I dunno if the rough animation linework being occasionally visible was international, but it’s nice.
Michael Kovach sounds like he's having an absolute _blast_ playing Rocky, and the violinist much the same. This project seems like such a blast for everyone involved. That matters, I think; the quality and care speaks for itself. Here's hoping for more. I missed the comic when it went dark to work on this, and nothing's sadder than an unfinished story.
Love to see Lackadaisy getting the appreciation it deserves. Amazing work done by everyone involved in this project! Haven’t been able to stop watching it for a month haha. Much love.
That's funny...I seem to be crying after watching this...I've loved Lackadaisy for years and seeing this realized, a living breathing entity I guess it's just gotten me a touch emotional. Having a voice to Rocky, Victor and especially Mordechai well it's nothing short of incredible for me. I pray this continues, it has brought me quite immeasurable joy.
The pure frustration that freckle experienced once he ran out of ammo... I feel him.
I just love this! Action packed, high-quality animation. It has the cigarette choked, Bathtub Gin soaked feel of the Prohibition Era. The characterization is phenomenal! A classic !
The use of a stopwatch sound to represent Mordecai’s intense focus is a beautiful artistic answer to the more common heartbeat sound effect.
It really does put it in perspective when he starts counting bullets, counting Freckles' shots. He's keeping his head under fire and thinking cool under pressure. That really gives insight into the kind of character he is.
It also ties into his existing motifs from the comic of gears and clocks.
I reminds me of Arthur's dead eye in rdr2 and it was always a great detail
he was using deadeye
When I heard it it reminded me of the dead eye in RDR2. Definitely the inspiration for this.
The production quality is unbelievable. Excellent sound design and masterful voice acting. Can't believe how smooth the animation is. Please don't stop anytime soon
A little late to the party, but I love this way too much lol. Not only is the animation beautifully fluid, the characters all feel so unique with their own personalities. And the sound design! I am absolutely in love with this already, hope it gets the full series it deserves. Everyone involved in the creation of this should be proud. :)
This isn't just great animation. This is great filmmaking!
I started reading the webcomic after watching the pilot and it got me hooked! This pilot helps bring the comic the recognition it deserves and I can’t thank everyone enough who worked so hard on making this happen. Here’s to hoping Lackadaisy will get picked up as a series soon!
The cat body language throughout this entire thing is spot on and perfect
Cats, prohibition-era, guns, epic animation, great voice acting, and electro swing. This checks so many boxes, it's almost unreal.
Right? Mordecai and Atlas inspired two characters of my own in a, story I'm still not writing 😂
I love the premise, but - in my opinion - it seems like this film lacks direction. That said, this is just a pilot, so it's fine and all things considered still very impressive. EDIT: I read comic now.
@Vulpilux Von Beaglestein CII. The comics have a bit more going on lol. This is just a random side event that isn't directly related.
@Vulpilux Von Beaglestein CII. have you not read the comic?
I will give my lung if it means this becomes a series Edit : FRECKLES LITTLE GROWL WHEN IVY OFFERS HIM THE DRINK IM DYING 😭🤌
Or, as the caption puts it; [upset cat trill]
I love how much detail you put into just the Pilot. I expect a lot from this. I mean you even spent a lot of time on the credits! Idk why but the credits are my favorite part of the pilot itself that’s how much work you put into the credits IMO
I was blown away with the quality of this animated movie. The attire of each character, the way they act, the music, the dialogue, a truly hidden gem about cats within the prohibition era. What really caught me was the music, I can't stop bobbing my head to the first track, Olive Branch, during the short chase scene. I look forward to binge reading the comics.
I remember reading this for the first time on deviant art way back when in like 2007. Its amazing that its finally crossed over into animation.
This is absolutely incredible. The animation is stunningly beautiful and all the voice actors are putting out amazing performances. You can see the passion in this project through the animation lines. Can't wait to see where this story goes! Definitely in love with this pilot!
I love how this "show" really has the balls to be mature without using curse words.
Why'd you put show in quotations? Also, what's wrong with curse words?
@LuxFuxx Because they're often used as a cheap crutch by "adult" shows to seem more mature. They can be a good tools but they're so annoyingly overused that seeing a mature show without them is kinda refreshing
Arcane is an adult theme show, but there's rarely cussing
@Ineda Nap I mean, that's the writing in general, that not the words themselves. South Park had an episode where they tried to say the word "Shit" as much as possible. They still made a great episode and used it over 100 times.
That's my problem with the Hazbin Hotel pilot, it's excessive and sounds like a bunch of edgy teenagers cussing when their parents aren't around.
One of the best internet Comics that turn into the best animated short on CS-tv ever made!!
The creators of this project really invested a piece of their soul, making the pilot series rich and exciting, this is commendable
I can watch this probably thousands of times and never get tired of it. The animation is incredible. Rocky is probably my favorite. I hope this becomes a series or a movie.
i like how vicktor looks like a jealous dad at 23:08
fr😭it made me so happy to see that reference to the comic
I found it incredible the amount of detail in the characters' faces, even in the characters that are in the background of the animation. It's simply sensational.
Incredible! Eye candy complete with amazing voice over work! I've been following the comic for so long, congrats to the whole team!
740 likes and no comment? Lemme help u with that
Did not expect you hear.
@Kawaii Neko :3 👂
I used to read the comic over a decade ago. Is it *still* going??
@Meganlodon thank you!
After watching Lackadaisy Pilot, I think it deserves to be turned into a series because of the creativity of Tracy J Butler and partly because there are many popular animated series for adults like The Simpson, Family Guy, Bojack Horseman,... The producers should reconsident this, because they are missing out on a very potential web comic, i hope to see that web comic turn into a series one day. Wish Tracy, Fable and the crew dreams come true.
Disney doesn't even compare, you're at the next level, I hope it's official, a series is incredible and it's only the pilot chapter
I hate Disney What about warner bros
Not sure how I stumbled across this, but I'm glad I did, excellent pilot episode. Great fluid stylish animation along with excellent character design. Mature AND fun, with genuinly funny moments. The voice acting was also very good! Well done to all involved on this, this is great stuff.
This has to be one of the best animations of this year! The team has been working on this for quite a while, and it showcases it in all its bright glory! Although there are moments when we can still see the sketch animation lines, it is still the most wonderful and spectacular pilot ever!! 10/10

Actually hearing Rocky speak after so many years of imagining it is like, one of the most *satisfying* moments in webcomic history.
Or would be, if he didn't sound like a modern Californian instead of a St. Louis kid from the 1920s.
@It's shrimp in a bag! He is not a kid
What are you talking about? There are comic dubs in this channel that reveal rockys voice that have been here for more than 2 years. Its not even a different VA
But this is a new animation 😂😂😂😂
@It's shrimp in a bag! Agree to disagree.
2 months after release and this is still one of the best animations on CS-tv
The beginning moments of an animated pilot are by far the most vital in proving a positive experience. You've taken my breath away in less than three minutes. Absolutely masterful.
This is living proof that animation isn’t just for kids More than any other example I’ve seen before
It's something for everyone, and you're right, I'm very happy to see this getting well deserved attention.
Love how expressionable each character is without words. Great work.
Finally hearing anyone else actively use the term "spaghetti arms" massively improved my day. I've never heard anyone else use that term and it made me unreasonably happy!
I love how catlike they made them, the tail twitches, mrrs, growls, the widening of pupils is so good.
If I recall, creator Tracy Butler chose cats precisely because their personalities and mannerisms felt like a good fit for an underworld of criminals and gangsters in an era when everyone was trying to act classy while rolling around in the mud... just like a cat.
@dinosaurblue & it's also a bit of wordplay. They're jazz *cats*. It's perfect.
As a cat lover, I was mesmerized
When Rocky leaves the car and has his little unhinged moment it reminded me of a cat on catnip lol
Freckle and Rocky have a friendship, related to Tails and Sonic. It's what makes the animation so fitting. Keep the great work!
I've never been more compelled to watch something that I know nothing about. I didn't plan on watching this, I just clicked on it because I thought it looked cool. Seriously, what masterpiece have I come across.
Это прекрасно! Я давно не видел таких атмосферных и тонких в себе проектов! Я действительно очень жду продолжения. ❤
I love the way this feels and how the aesthetic of the show looks. I’m not a furry but this is one of the better shows on CS-tv
I love how they just see dangerous stuff then they suddenly go crazy over it
Freckle going from a sweet yet anxious guy to going absolutely manic when getting a gun is the best. He’s my absolute favorite now.
He's always been my fav, albeit kinda sad for certain reasons, you'll know from the webcomic.
His psychology is what interests me, in addition to his storytelling potential. I have the inkling that he could be a heartbreaking tragedy.
This animation is absolutely beautiful. I don't have words. The character, set, and sound design are phenomenal!
The music in this is amazing, not to mention character design, historical accuracy, and literally everything else good to say.
Шикарно! Давно читал, не ожидал что увижу полноценную анимацию. Желаю всего наилучшего, терпения и упрямства.
The pure unhinged madness that bubbles and bursts from within the minds of the characters is epic, they all feel like real cat people who have instincts, dreams and hopes, and most of all a sense of humor even though they know their lives are in danger, mainly because they are still young and wanna experience thrills without a care, but realize things about themselves they didn't know they had. This was just crazy fun. I hope this series explodes!!!! Just like the explosives in this short. 😉 💥
I can’t wait for the next one! The art style is incredible! Their expressions are so beautiful and unique! The whole story is so creative and I love the time period! The voice actors are on point and the ambiance and sound affects are gorgeous! In short: IM OBSESSED 🤩
Never in my life have I seen a CS-tv video and been inspired to throw money at it, but here we are. Well deserved.
Agreed. I've paid ticket money for far worse content at theaters.
We sincerely appreciate that you felt it was worthy. Thank you!
That was amazing. The animation, the voice acting... all of it!
This episode is mavelous! The art, animation, voice acting, and writing all come together to make something special. Incredible.
I'm absolutely impressed by how many details this thing has in it... Like, facial expressions of these characters striking a peak every second, the movement is so wobbly and yet smooth, and A DETECTIVE BOARD with cats, and so many vintage "photos" that build up for story that is going to be told later!!!! I already want to see more!
Wowow this was stunning! The animation, the editing, the voice acting, the music-- next level!! The team who made this is clearly incredibly talented. Can't wait to see where it goes!
We need a full web series of this
Y e s
There is the comics
Only took one episode to establish a setting, a dozen characters with clear personalities, and intriguing world building. Please make more, I’m loving it so far!
Thats a good pilot right there
There are years and years of comics already written for this series and they're fantastic, they basically have several seasons of a wonderful TV show already storyboarded and written, I hope they get a real series!!!
@M C well ive already read half of them yesterday hahah
@M C I wouldn’t say seasonS, maybe one The events in the comic itself happen in the course of what, a week? It’s 170+ pages, yes, but between those not much happens that couldn’t be panned out in 5 or 6, maybe a season, of episodes. It would make for a banger 5 or 6 introducing episodes tho
i adore this!! would totally watch more and i’m gonna check out the webcomic now! great work everyone!
these scenes legit prove why this is my favorite character. 11:47 13:43
The writing was really well done here, it really captures the part of the century it takes place in. Fantastic work and I can't wait to see more!
The fact this series has been aroubd since 06 and i've only just discovered it is a crime
Amazing!!! If you continue this into a full show I will watch every episode. The animation, the art, the world, the voice acting, the characters-- all of it was spectacular and I am immediately obsessed.
I love that Rocky is just so unapologetically unhinged. I want his vibes. It gives me life.
I love that he's both a complete maniac and the sensitive artistic type. These characters aren't all defined by just one thing, and it's brilliant
THE MAPLE SYRUP GIVES HIM POWER
Trust me, you do NOT want that level of unmedicated ADHD. I speak from experience.
I love him.
@RoxsiTheFox s a m e
Dear, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt admiration for the exceptional animation video you created. It is truly a masterpiece that captivated my senses and left me in awe of your incredible talent. Your attention to detail, fluid motion, and vibrant colors brought the characters and scenes to life in the most magical way. Each frame was crafted with precision and artistry, resulting in a visually stunning experience that left a lasting impression. Not only was the animation visually impressive, but the storytelling was also remarkable. The way you seamlessly wove together emotions, plot twists, and character development was truly inspiring. You managed to create a world that felt real and evoked a range of emotions, from joy and laughter to suspense and even a touch of nostalgia. Your dedication and passion for your craft shine through in every aspect of this animation. It is evident that you poured your heart and soul into this project, and the result is nothing short of extraordinary. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world and enriching our lives with this incredible animation video. Your creativity and skill have not only entertained but also inspired many. You have set the bar high for excellence in animation, and I have no doubt that your work will continue to amaze and inspire others in the future. Once again, congratulations on this phenomenal achievement. You should be immensely proud of your accomplishments. I cannot wait to see what you create next, as I know it will be nothing short of pure brilliance. Wishing you continued success and fulfillment in all your artistic endeavors. With utmost admiration, [@youtubeanimations]
I'm amazed by the quality of the animation, the plot, the sound, everything. And it's for free!
So glad to see Lackadaisy animated. I hope to see more.
Disneys shows: 6/10 Netflix Shows: 5/10 This pilot alone: 10000/10
I love the subtle characterizations in this pilot! The use of dialogue to detail the personalities and backgrounds of these mysterious characters is brilliantly executed! I love Mordecai especially, so many hints to his intellect and serious nature. Also I picked up on a little show not tell given his reaction to the water. Overall, great work!
for being hand-drawn and being just a pilot episode, god damn the animation is nailed on. Props to all people who worked on this.
yeah everything is perfect except the sketch being visible
@KennethOnDrugs honestly I feel like it adds an asthetic to it, but I do wonder what it would look like without it
@KennethOnDrugs i think its intentional.
I know I love it too!
@KennethOnDrugs That was intentionally done as a stylistic choice. Kinda like how Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse is made to somewhat look like it's an actual comic while still being 3D animation.
Absolutely fantastic work by all involved, I can't wait to see where this project will go
One of the best series I’ve ever seen.🔫🐱🍾 Best pilot on the planet.
Been a fan since the DeviantArt days - so proud of how far this has come!!!!
