A Taste of Saturday Morning Watchmen

Along with the release of the Watchmen movie this weekend came the surprise discovery of Saturday Morning Watchmen, a goofy animated fan film that drops Alan Moore’s diabolical R-Rated comic book into the G-Rated waters of a typical 1980s DIC cartoon. It’s torn up the internet, going seriously viral the last few days, but if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s below.

What this yet another viral video effort by Warner Brothers? Nope, it was done by amateur animator Harry Partridge, as he revealed over on

Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback I’ve gotten so far, you’ve made an old fanboy very happy.

This combines two huge passions of mine, one being the comic genius (?) that is Alan Moore and the other being kids programming from the late 80s which I would say is my biggest animation inspiration.

Believe it or not, one of the first ever things I ever animated/programmed was a crappy side scrolling Rorschach game where you go around beating up street punks, it was not only a fucking awful game but totally and unironically misinterpreted the source material, I would like to think I’ve grown somewhat since then but here I am, 5 years later, doing exactly the same thing! Perhaps just a bit more knowingly…

Love you all

Happy Harry
