Ocarina of Time holds a special place in the hearts of Zelda fans, but sometimes it’s good to laugh at yourself. After all, who hasn’t wanted to take a fly swatter to Navi or wondered why Link’s iron boots don’t weigh him down once they’re in his bag? The YouTube animation group Smashbits have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a full-length animated parody of Ocarina of Time — think “Blue Harvest”, the Family Guy Star Wars parody episode. The animation follows Link’s journey with an expanded story, touching on what the characters are up to when they’re not on screen. While avid Zelda fans will enjoy all the inside jokes, non-gamers will still be able to appreciate the humor.

The idea to make an Ocarina of Time parody has been tossed around by the Smashbits team for the past three years. Now that they have a solid vision of the project, they’re ready to move forward. In order to cover all of the animation costs, they’re hoping to raise $225,000 by December 5. To give you an idea of what the final product will be, they’ve released a pilot script (this does contain explicit language). For more information about the parody, check out the video below.

  • This is going to sound terrible but…I hope this fails. I want to see a Zelda movie made just as much as the next guy! But a Family-Guy-styled, foul mouthed Zelda parody just makes me sick. I don’t understand people who think that things are funnier when you throw in immature, foul jokes. And I don’t want that kind of stuff getting near Zelda.

    But that’s just my opinion. In a Kickstarter, money talks louder than words. I’ll just wait and see if it suceeds or not.

      Wow, I could not agree with you more! There’s been some short episodes of dumb YouTube stuff like this and that’s really where it should stay. These so called “parodies” are just immature and try to pull a South Park/Family Guy style of humor that is just pathetic.

      Now the Zeldamotion series of A Link to the Past is something amazing and does right by this series. Aeipathy Industries is the one who deserves the financial backing to make more quality content. Just my opinion

      • Did you see that demo reel for a CGI Zelda movie/series? I would, of course, love a live-action Zelda movie, but maybe an animated movie would be a better start. And that demo reel was pretty good.

    Why does this have to be kickstarted? Why can’t they make it a youtube series or something like team four stars dragon ball z abridged and the idea of Zelda characters acting like there from family guy episode dose not appeal to me but if you really like this idea more power to you
