Doraleous and Associates Hits YouTube With New Season

Doraleous and Associates Hits YouTube With New Season

The adventures of Doraleous and Associates have begun anew with a new 13 episode season.

Originally a member of The Escapist's fine repertoire of video content, Doraleous and Associates told the story of a party of fantasy adventurers as they bumbled their way through the crisis-struck land of Nudonia. While the series has since moved onto to different pastures, it's still a favorite of ours and, in turn, we're happy to report that fans can now enjoy a brand new season.

The new season, which premiered yesterday exclusively on the Hank and Jed YouTube channel, will feature thirteen episodes and comes to viewers compliments of Kickstarter. The show's campaign, which ended back in April 2013, managed to raise more than $86,000 to help fund new episodes. It's money that, according to its creators, has been well spent. "This new season has some of my favorite episodes yet," said writer/producer Brent Triplett. "We're looking forward to sharing these new episodes with the entire Doraleous Community."

Fans can expect these fresh episodes to include new characters, several of whom will be voiced by YouTube celebrities including Daniel Baxter (How it Should Have Ended), Olga Kay and ImmortalHD, among others. Overall, the team is just hoping that fans will notice an improvement in this season's quality. "The writing is sharper, the animation is more fluid and the episodes are nice and lengthy," said animator/actor Jon Etheridge. New episodes of Doraleous and Associates will post every Monday.

It's finally back!

I was so pissed when Escapist stopped hosting this show. It was probably the best short you guys ever had. Anthony Saves the World is a close second.

Sweet! I loved me some Doraleous. Looking forward to seeing more.

Sorry if I'm opening up some old wounds but what happened with that, anyway? Last I saw from DA was the guy with his head up his ass. Then HISHE was on Youtube, which was cool too. But I thought that, if they were to go back to DA, it would be on here. I know it's an assumption but it isn't that big of a logical leap, is it?

Just a bit curious about that.

Hurry up, Doralingus D:

*dances aboot the place*

Woohoo! Been waitin' for this.

Hey! Ho!
It's about damn time!

Well, that's one evening lost to the interweb beast! I'm going to have to watch the series from the beginning again before watching the new one(s), time for a marathon.

punariffic, much love for its return.

Is there going to be a recap episode? Will they band together again? What happened in the interim? I just have to know now!

Super excited to see that smug archer again! I always thought DA had its own brand of comedy and can't wait to see the series continue.

The episode rock! Am I too late? Ok how about I'm glad they didn't axed it altogether!

Either way, I am glad for its return!

Oh hell yeah, I was wondering whatever happened to this! Original new webseries like this were the reason i started coming to the Escapist in the first place. Now I don't have a problem with the numerous (and much cheaper to produce) talk shows the site has now, but there's been an actual good mini series since Space Janitors.

I've been waiting sooo long for this. I dont know what to do... im crying... I'ts beautiful

YAAAAAAY~

We can all die happy now that Dorilingus is here to save us again. <3

...Boy, that was a redundant statement.

Doralingus, yes! Fuckin' finally. I was waiting for this for a long time.

I'm very happy right now, I've been craving for moar Doarlingus misadventures and my prayers have finally been answered!

:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Man, I wondered what happened to that show.
Of the things that stuck with me from that show, I think my favorite was still the "I see a bitch, oh I see a bitch, I see a bitch what do you see?"
Even better when they had that episode where there was a play of their adventures and that was a musical number (Which I am fairly certain was the last episode if I remember correctly).

This new episode is rock solid.

Perfect end to my day, been waiting for this for ages. Shame they left the escapist was one of my favorites.

Doraleous was one of the shows that brought me here to the Escapist in the first place, so to see it continued after so many bloody years it so very much appreciated.

It's most probably my favourite web series ever. I can't think of another that even comes close to Doraleous in terms of pure entertainment.

Awwwwww yeah, time for an archive binge to refresh my memory! I love this show so much.

Wasn't Doraleous and Associates one of the content creators that hadn't been paid during the Extra Credits RocketHub scandal? I never watched the show, but I remember it coming up around the time that Escapist and EC split.

They did slowdown (content) and leave because of related issues. Yes.
I am very happy now I can see them again.

I love this show and I was so happy to hear it got successfully Kickstarted. Can't wait to watch these new episodes.

I haven't watched a single episode since the Escapist pulled it, so I'll be glad to re-watch the adventures of Doralingus...Doralean....Dora the Explorer... Doraleous!

The fact that they're working on it again makes me happier than I think it should.

Me, too! What that guy said! I was mad that 3 months became, well, years, but I am so happy it's back!

How is this the first time I have heard of this show, this was great.

Sweet sweet entertainment here we come!

Feel free to shun me, but I never watched this web series. ... At all.

However, I am familiar with the animators due to their work on a web series they did that I AM familiar with, that being Battlefield Friends. I might put some time aside and go through this entire series given how much I love their work on BFFs.

I'm pleased that there isn't any bad feelings towards Hank and Jed since their departure and that the Escapist is throwing up an article to promote them. I really did love the series and I'm glad it lives on, even if I have to leave my favorite site to watch it. ^.^

YES! I loved that show. It made me so sad when it just ended, it was probably one of the two best shows you ever had here, the other being Unforgotten Realms.

I have waited too long for this. They've kept me hanging since '11. I feel compelled to do this: NEEEEEEEEEEEEBS!

Also I agree with everyone else, Unforgotten Realms does need a proper ending.

I have many happy's!!!

Seconded. Was always disappointed that they sort of just dropped off the map, but it's great seeing it back after all this time.

Now we just need that movie they went on hiatus to make in the first place.
