No doubt it's a classic. One of the best 64Kb PC intros of all time. It's cute, sounds good, runs smoothly, it's a great idea and fun to watch. I see no mistakes in this production.

Good cartoon intro! Makes me feel like a child again. Oooh :-P
never ever will I forget the moment at wired when "paper" switched from 2d to 3d.

very good idea, the start scene rules a lot !!!
but the other effects (they are good) do not
fit the rest of the design and kill the thumb up to stay an ok prod imho
a classic.
the part where the whole drawing comes to life is just too nice.. the paper airplanes own too :)
statix+vic super dynamic duo were just warming up ;)

Really cool. A real pity that I don't have a GUS, I'd really like to have heard Vic's music. I agree that some of the non-cartoonish scenes didn't fit so well, but fortunately they didn't manage to ruin this great intro.

also, the scenes are cute, and so is the scene with the paper airplanes.

Golden oldie. Done in the era when people still thought showing a torus or env. bumped chunk on of grid effect was enough. Luckily Statix showed the rest that you can actually be even innovative in demo making. Respect.

This is one of those times when there should be a triple-rulez vote. The music is every bit as good as the graphics and design, which knocked me flat on my ass the first time I saw it.

kicks ass

this was the demo that really hooked me into the scene. an inspired little 64k that even managed to run on every pc i tried it on without having to spend ages pissing around in autoexecs and configs. bliss. and with the style and subject it's something that even non-sceners could enjoy in 1996. still one of my favourites

This was probably the first 64K demo that actually blew my mind as it was so mind boggling when I first saw this back in the days!

I wonder what I'd have thought if I saw the 3D transformation in '96. It's impressive even now.
