Salad Fingers, a singularly disturbing Flash cartoon by David Firth is a unique experience. A series of bizarre animations that are mere random messes to those who are simply too lazy to think hard, but beautiful and bewildering to those who wish to interpret and analyze them and those who appreciate art.
Salad Fingers is set around a lonely, mentally disturbed mutant who resides in a wasteland with only his finger puppets and his imagination as company. We hear that the world around him perished during a great war. He sees and does strange things that often end him up in surreal and frightening situations.
As we follow him through his nightmarish experiences, we grow to like him and care about him, despite his sickening habits and hobbies. It is hard not to feel sorry for him when he breaks down and feels miserable and alone.
Salad Fingers is truly a one-of-a-kind Flash series. No other series I can think of has been this surreal, strange or beautiful. Many have tried to mimic it, yes, but that has not always ended well.
