I would call it a horror and creepy flash cartoon that was created by a British cartoonist, David Firth in 2004. Salad Fingers gained rapid popularity in 2005 and was ranked among the Top 10 pop culture phenomena for that year. It originally appeared on Newgrounds, where I first saw it, but then later uploaded to YouTube.
The cartoon revolves around the eponymous Salad Fingers, a schizophrenic, green thin man who inhabits a desolate world.
It doesn't stop there...the music! Oh boy the music...how it completes the total eeriness of the cartoon. David Firth actually uses his own music, for example when Salad Fingers gets scared the music that is played is Firth playing the guitar but slowed down and reversed.
The main character is a bald hunchbacked humanoid who speaks with a Northern accent. His long, strangely-shaped fingers are his most notable feature. Salad Fingers is shown deriving pleasure from rubbing various objects, particularly rusty metallic ones such as spoons, taps and a kettle. Salad Fingers appears to suffer from schizophrenia, and is unable or unwilling to distinguish between living beings and inanimate objects, and is frequently found talking to various inert articles. He often assigns such objects proper names and appears to believe that they can communicate with him directly, sometimes voicing their perceived thoughts himself. He lives alone in a small shack with the number 22 on the door. His talents include playing the flute and speaking French. It is implied that the desolate world Salad Fingers inhabits is the aftermath of the "Great War", a conflict which is referenced several times in the more recent episodes. Interestingly enough, he is quite articulate.
If you haven't already I totally recommend this little flash series! I mean comon it's only 8 episodes...bet'cha can't just watch one!
