Project Main Details

Bob Hope  
'Bob Hope' is a short animated film, in the vein of Rocko's Modern Life or Regular Show, that I'm making for my senior thesis. The story features a good amount of absurdist and dialogue-driven humor.

Upon graduation, I plan to shop the film around as a pilot for a potential television series.

Four coworkers become stranded on a couch while playing 'Bob Hope', a game where you can't touch the floor. Hilarity ensues, as each is too stubborn to move and lose the game.
There's Action! Thrills! Giant Chickens! Vivid, Hunger-induced Hallucinations! Pretty much everything you'd want in a short film.

A healthy familiarity with current animated television shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Archer, Metalocalypse, or any other shows in the Adult Swim lineup would be a big plus. Voice reels are greatly preferred.

Malcolm walks by the doorway with a box of cereal under his arm. Rhonda, James, and Darby are still on the couch.

Oh, come on!


Have you been here all day?

Darby pops up from behind the couch arm.

Is that cereal?

Malcolm looks at his cereal box.

What, this?
You want this?

(beat) Yes.

Nah, this is just for people who did work today.

Please? We haven’t eaten all day.

Malcolm starts eating the cereal and taunting them.

Mmmmmmmm... / Oh man, this is delicious.

Malcolm starts dancing.

Come on Malcolm, stop being a wang!

Malcolm does the robot.

Oh, he can’t hear us. He’s a robot now.

Angry, Rhonda ‘picks up’ the couch and drops it on a loose floorboard, ‘catapulting’ Malcolm onto the couch.

(Exasperated/confused noises, then a sigh)
Great, now I’m stuck here too. Happy now?

(Beat) Yes.

The chicken’s gonna be pissed, all because of this stupid game.

Whoa! Hey! What? (Improvised Rants)


If you think Bob Hope’s so stupid, then why don’t you just leave right now?

Malcolm looks over the side of the couch. The door seems really far away.

MALCOLM not feel like it.
Whatever. I’m going to sleep.
