Foamy was created by Jonathan Mathers. You can find many of the Foamy cartoons at www.illwwillpress.com. Most of the cartoons are controversial in nature; therefore I can only tell you small parts of them.
Foamy is the pet squirrel of Germaine, a 20- something Goth who has purple hair (more on her later).
He is pissed off about most of the stupid things in the world and hates people in general, which is why I like him.
The premise of this cartoon is this squirrel ranting about stupid things people do.
Rant topics have included:
Drug addicts who try to push their drugs on other people (www.illwillpress.com/drugs.html)
The Atkins Diet (Foamy calls it the “Fatkins Diet”)
Nonsense words and phrases
People who say they are going to quit, but don’t
Weak willed people
There are other characters in this cartoon series other than Foamy and Germaine. They are screwed up and many times Foamy has wondered why all his friends are the types of people he hates.
These characters include, but are not limited to:
Pilze is the exact opposite of Foamy, He pops pills as if they were candy, in fact, he calls them “candies.” He talks like he just drank 50 caffeinated beverages and shakes like it too! This is after taking “not six, but twelve” tranquilizers strong enough to knock out a horse! Pilze also has ADD, which he calls “Dissoficer Antention Order”. Pilze embodies everything Foamy hates about drug addicts.
I think Pilze is the second funniest character in this cartoon series, behind Foamy, of course.
This is a new character- another friend of Foamy. He’s a black squirrel. But he embodies a particular negative type of people. I don’t know much about this character, but I know that I don’t like this character at all.
More about Foamy and Germaine:
Foamy likes money and doesn’t like taxes, so he created a cult that worships him- called the “Foaminian Cult”, and he tries to get “donations” for his cult. He has taken Germaine’s underwear and sold them on Ebay for his cult. He has also gone into the park to sing his “Squirrel Songs” for donations.
Foamy also loves coffee, bagels, and cream cheese. He uses his “donations” to get these things.
Germaine is always complaining about something, how her clothes don’t fit, how men- pigs drool all over her, and anything Foamy does or says.
I agree with Foamy on 95% of the things he says.
There is a new Foamy cartoon about once every 2 weeks.
Now we come to the actual website.
www.illwillpress.com has several features. In the middle of the home page, there is the newest cartoon and the date of the next cartoon.
And on both the left side and the right side there are links to get Foamy merchandise. I don’t mind this, as the guy who created Foamy does need to pay for the site and eat! And I bought some of the merchandise!
There is also a link to get the new Foamy Podcast on Itunes, and another link to get the newsletter. I’m signed up for these.
At the top of the page, there are links to a large chunk of the ‘toons, a link to a topical rant- which is rants on how people wouldn’t help themselves during hurricane Katrina, or how tribute bands suck (these are really funny!). More links to links, and fan- art.
There are 35 cartoons kept on the site at all times.
I recommend going to www.illwillpress.com and seeing these for yourself!
