After how happy I was with my “misfit” idea, it was disheartening how much I struggled with “sling”. I figured it would involve a slingshot, and it was initially PMD getting ready to launch a giant plunger or some bananas, but it just wasn’t working for me. So, I decided PMD would be launching himself, which got me thinking about Angry Birds. I was still a ways into the sketch, not liking it, wanting to come up with something different or some more elements to make this one more interesting. Finally my Brain woke up and said “…uh, why not that whole Angry Birds thing we’re already thinking about?” Then the idea for the bird with the plunger, then the Angry Bird style setting and background happened. I’m pretty pleased with where this one wound up, considering where it started.
