David Firth

David Firth (born 23 January 1983 in Doncaster, England) is an English animator. His most popular work is featured prominently on Newgrounds, and a number of specially commissioned short animations have been shown on British television. Notable animations from David Firth are Men from Up the Stairs, the Salad Fingers series, Health Reminder and Pulch: The Good Times. Many of his works have high acclaim on Newgrounds.com.

Firth's work often contains a large amount of abusive language and dark imagery and tends to explore topics of a disturbing or surreal nature, such as depression and mental illness; he also wrote and animated his Sock series based on his own dreams. Some of his work may be described as dark humour, while much of it is simply experimental, using many different styles.

Firth gained internet stardom after the third episode of his Salad Fingers series was featured on the front page of the well-known website, Newgrounds. He is also the creator of the faux documentary series "Devvo", which follows the day-to-day lifestyle of a stereotypical chav (played by Firth's longtime friend Christian "Crust" Pickup) in the UK. David Firth plays Devvo's friend and co-musician Shady Piez, who is commonly seen wearing a large beige coat with "MC DEVVO" drawn on the back. Other cartoon series include Burnt Face Man and the Jerry Jackson cartoons.

Firth is a fan of Aphex Twin, and has used references such as the song "Milkman" in a cartoon also titled "Milkman". Also, in the cartoon "Scribbler", an Aphex Twin poster can be seen. Firth has also used music by Aphex Twin in his more experimental, stop-motion films.

In addition to several broadcasts of "Devvo," David Firth has submitted short films for "Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe", televised on BBC Four.

Firth composes electronic music under the pseudonym of Salt n Pepa. One of his most popular songs is titled Push It.

It went a little something like this; Ah, push it

Ah, push it

Push it!

Oooh, baby, baby

Baby, baby

Oooh, baby, baby

B-baby, baby

Salt and Pepa's hit, and we're in effect
