Ozone Releases Fourth Episode of "It's Jerry Time!"The fourth episode titled "Jerry Strikes Back!" (February 06, 2006)
Long-time TV graphics and animation studio Ozone Inc. announces the release of a brand new fourth episode of its animated hit called It's Jerry Time! (www.itsjerrytime.com).
It's Jerry Time!, featuring "true tales from the life of Jerry," is a one-of-a-kind animated micro-series featuring a hapless everyman named Jerry who encounters hilarious obstacles in his day-to-day life.
The fourth episode, titled "Jerry Strikes Back!", features Jerry's epic battle with an invading armada of moths. The moths first appear as an innocuous, barely noticeable annoyance. But they start to multiply and in the heat of the summer, Jerry becomes frustrated and ultimately exacts his own brand of frontier justice.
In past episodes, the wonky Jerry has been relegated to the status of whipping boy for the cold cruel world, whether it's dealing with a hostile waitress, an evil landlord or even going to jail for an innocent traffic incident. The fourth episode is a culmination of these indignities and frustrations and is the first where Jerry actually gets a chance for some kind of revenge..
It's Jerry Time! premiered online on November 18, 2005. In its short duration, "Jerry" has become synonymous with "internet anti-hero", garnering worldwide attention with over 80,000 viewers. Most recent accolades have come from Business Week ("JerryTime video blog is pure gold"), Writer's Guild of America ("Super-unusual hilarious animation for the web). and UK Guardian Unlimited. ("Trust us, this is going to be huge.") Influential websites from Yahoo, Boing-Boing to Rocketboom have compared It's JerryTime! to a cross between Monty Python and Harvey Pekar.
It's Jerry Time! features monthly four-minute episodes produced in cutout-style animation by Ozone Inc, (www.ozonetvdesign.com) an award-winning animation studio known for high-end program graphics. The cut-out animation by Orrin Zucker is framed with deadpan comic monologues and an original piano soundtrack by his brother Jerry.
