Note: This week’s topic “Kicking” remains as listed, and the shopping topic has been moved to the week starting the 6th November. .

OK, now back to last week’s topic.

Our Favorite Flipnotes from last weeks Topic "Ghostbusters"

Both the “Slimer Ghost” and the "Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Destroyer” are showcased magnificently in our first topic winning selection this week, by JoseManueF.

We were totally blown away with the Flipnote recreations of these classic Ghostbuster characters.

Also, the drawing and animation of the particle thrower and ghost capturing trap were extremely accurate and skillfully made.

Flip-tool note: The use of pencil number 5 was an inspired choice for the proton streams.


Wacky’s neighbor Phillip looks to be in trouble yet again! And this time it’s from a malevolent and pesky ghost, in our next topic winner by Jake.

But he can relax, probably, for the “Ghost-Wackers” are here to save the day!

We just loved the ecto-plasmic hoover style device that Wacky and his sister use for their ghost busting. And the comedy action of sucking up not only the ghost and poor Phillip, but the ghost hunters themselves as well had us rolling around with laughter!

Try watching it frame by frame.

The movement flow and energy dispersal is expertly animated.


Our next hilarious topic winner, by うさぎ features a cheeky thieving ghost and an outlandish musical soundtrack.

The bizarre crime drama plays out with dynamic action, flashing key images, and a true sense of the surreal.

What a fascinating interpretation of the Ghostbusting theme.


StickmanⓁⓇ has created this fantastic comercial all about the Ghostbusters.

What they do, how they do it, and all you need to know if your home is suffering from a terrifying ghost infestation.

So pick up the phone and dial……

You know who to call!


Checkout this hand powered, spook grabbing ghost-trap animation by jackobee.

We really enjoyed this novel take on how a piece of movie inspired, supernatural technology works.


This Weeks Topic - "Kicking"

Kicking is powerful, physical action, and a vital part of many sports and martial arts.

For example, the controlled kicking of the football in soccer can score a goal and win the game.

And in empty handed combats such as Karate, Kung-fu and kick-boxing, the sidekick, scissor kick and roundhouse are all effective attacks.

All of these different kicks involve balance, timing and figurative movement for the controlled release of energy. So why not try some construction work with your drawings and animation to give realism to the action.

Your Flipnotes could feature any type of kicking or kick-based ideas that you like.

And as it’s animation, why not go zany, with unbelievable kicks of incredible objects over impossible distances!

It’s entirely up to you!

Kick-off an entry for this action topic today!

Let’s all get booting!

We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.

Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - Kicking and the deadline for your entries is October 23rd (12pm EST / 4pm GMT).

We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.

And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.

Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
