Dumb running Sonic is too funny for its own good

Got a knack for creating simple animations? Got no art skills whatsoever? Then it’s time to play a fun new game called “Dumb running Sonic,” where the goal is to make the goofiest-looking Sonic running animation, save it as a GIF, and share it with the world.

Our artsy buddy Zac Gorman, the Mega Man 2 guide fella, made a post last week about how cute it would be if Sonic “ran like an idiot.” His animation was seen as a challenge by Nedroid artist Anthony Clark, who responded with this little number and a call for other artists to submit their interpretations. The response has been overwhelming, spawning the Tumblr page below.

You really should spend a few minutes browsing through the submissions. I guarantee you’ll have a hearty laugh. I even posted a few choice pics in their full animated GIF glory after the jump. Enjoy!
