The most exciting stick figure-versus-giant robot battle you’ll see today. Or at least somewhere in the top five.
Mr. Stick and comes face-to-face with Stickmania’s greatest enemy, and nothing will ever be the same. It’s very dramatic.
It’s time for Operation Doom, Mr. Stick’s plan to defeat the robots once and for all. His first task: Infiltrate the Evil Robot Fortress!
Armed with a powerful new weapon, Mr. Stick is ready to strike back! But the only reason his plan isn’t completely insane is that he probably doesn’t have one.
Originally, there was going to be some explanation in this episode about what exactly the Doomsday Plan is, but that never quite made it into the script. I suppose I could have changed the title, but I still kind of like it.
Episode 5 of The Adventures of Mr. Stick!!!, and the first all-new adventure in a decade. (Not that anyone’s counting.) The robots may destroy his home, but they can’t destroy his spirit.
Episode 4 was easily the longest and most ambitious of the original Adventures of Mr. Stick!!!, and not coincidentally, it was also the last. And hey, if you’re going to let a series lapse for 10 years and possibly forever, you might as well do it on a cliffhanger.
I did not put a ton of thought into the story in this episode when I created it more than a decade ago, so I have no idea whether I actually meant to copy the plot of The Empire Strikes Back. But really, it was probably inevitable.
I deliberately avoided taking creative writing classes throughout high school, despite spending most of my free time making up dumb stories. Possibly as a result, the stories I came up with tended to have somewhat questionable literary value.
Still, they were fun to make. And a couple of them stayed with me long after I’d moved on to more serious pursuits, nagging at me for a good ten years until some lazy afternoon on a holiday weekend when I decided to revive them for no reason. Hence, I give you a completely remastered re-release of Mr. Stick Saves the Universe!, now in 720p HD.
