Long ago, in the early 2,000's... in a time before YouTube...

The internet had these wacky things called FLASH PORTALS. Sites like like Newgrounds, CampChaos, Ebaumsworld, Albino Blacksheep and Homestar Runner became platforms where animators and other creatives could deliver their own unique brand of comedy in the form of short (sometimes musical) cartoons. It was the birth of a new form of entertainment and the world was ready to absorb it all!

After spotlighting some of our favorite websites and Flash cartoons from those days, 8-Bit Alchemy has a B segment for ya and it all ties together!
