Kirby Right Back at Ya! has always held this surreal place in the series, taking ideas and characters from the games while infusing plenty of its own twists on world building and design. Even if it never quite appealed to the masses the way the games have, it did have two fantastic gifts in the form of its maximum pink theme song and Dedede’s sassy sidekick snail Escargoon — and now it’s brought about a new kind of joy thanks to some absolutely dedicated fans.
Hundreds of animators have banded together to take an episode of the series (fittingly, one about animating) and put their own twists on it scene by scene. You’ll see familiar characters in new ways and styles, some great sight gags, and you’ll have the opportunity to appreciate that 4kids dubbing all over again.
It’s always amazing what a group of fans can put together over time, and as a fellow fan of Kirby I’m happy to see something like this come together. Be sure to check out the loving staff yourself if a scene (or the whole project, for that matter) brought you a smile, and share your own Dream Land delights to keep the show going in your own way.
