Blockhead is a comic character and the star of a six part Flash series created by William Swain, most cartoons show Blockhead acting strangely or doing incredibly stupid things. Blockhead's art style combines regular Flash with strangely jpg like imaging for an amazingly colorful world.
Blockhead was first created in 1992, when William Swain was in 5th Grade. Blockhead started out as a doodle, but he soon evolved into recognizable form. William says he used the character to mock his art talents in front of his friends, but Blockhead started to grow.
The first comic revolves around Blockhead being attacked by a pack of dogs and falling into pieces, he then tries to recover his limbs. By the usage of saliva, Blockhead gets all his appendages back.
In middle school Spanish class, Blockhead took on the character he is today. Blockhead actually helped William Swain through Spanish class, his adventures stretched from prison to school to even outer space. But his house usually stayed at the center of his idiocy, William Swain kept drawing, then put the comic away, until he went to high school, he thought it was time to grow up.
However, when he got there, he managed three years without Blockhead. But in 1999, Will brought out Blockhead once again, he proceeded to draw ten comic in two weeks. By then, Will had created a totally unique world that combined an adult sense of humor with drawings to make a bland world with the most obnoxious character ever, William then put Blockhead away one more time.
But once again, in 2005, Will decided to learn Macromedia Flash His goal was to create a superhero world with original characters with his friend, Dan Ashe. But Will needed practice, and that practice was Blockhead. Blockhead has become very popular on Newgrounds and has currently 6 episodes, with another in production. However, Blockhead hasn't taken a backseat to the superhero comic, which is still in production.

When he picks it up again, Conscience tells him to dial the phone number on the table. When Blockhead asks which number to dial, Conscience tells him: "All of them, in the order they appear. Not backwards, not upside down, dial the numbers." When Blockhead just sits there, Conscience tells him repeatedly to dial the number. When Blockhead finally does, he puts the phone back down on its cradle. When Conscience asks him why he did it, he replied that there was no one home and he got the machine. Conscience tells him that was the automated machine the customers used to activate the service, the doorbell then rings, Conscience tells Blockhead to get it, his face in his hands.

Blockhead says playtime and that someone left a message for him. When Conscience asks what it is, Blockhead proceeds to blow a raspberry and laugh. Conscience says that no matter how bad he fells about himself, there would always be Blockhead. Blockhead replies, as only he can: "This fat talk is super boring, it's nooooooooooooooooooooow snack time for my face-mouth!" Blockhead then proceeds to jump into the kitchen and open his refrigerator. There he finds watermelon, a boot, a brick, and a knife. (Which he refers to as: Milk, Fish, Bread, and Delicious Jello.)

He then points at an obese woman near the counter, telling the operator to hide the food. He then speeds away.
The camera then fades in on Blockhead's house and clanging noises are heard, Blockhead is than shown all dirty and he then sits on the couch where a soap opera cones on about teeth. Blockhead appears to be intrigued by the show, but a chipmunk comes and sits making noise on the windowsill.

He then runs over to the window and shouts at the chipmunk, he then bats it off the window. Exclaiming that he batted it, Conscience cuts in and sarcastically says that Blockhead saved them. He then asks Blockhead why he is so dirty, Blockhead replies by saying he lost his tongs, Conscience fails to see Blockhead's logic, as he walks back to the couch.

He goes to the window to find children playing in his yard, he tells them to get off his lawn and that he would throw a radish at them. Conscience than says that they should make a leash for Blockhead, or a revolver to "end it" as he said. Blockhead replies by saying "This will be a deadly year for radish" When Conscience says he doesn't understand, Blockhead says he knows who does, and points to the radish. Conscience is annoyed sharply and choses to run a bath and open his veins and with that, he bids Blockhead goodnight. Blockhead appears to be lost without Conscience. He then breaks through his front door, throwing a radish at one of the children, he then runs out into the street, where he gets hit by a car, the camera blacks out before you see any violence.
