About

Clock Crew[2] is a flash crew from Newgrounds.com[1] and ClockCrew.cc[3]. This group is ruled by a user name StrawberryClock.

The Beginning

The Clock Crew saga all begin on August 15th, 2001. A Newgrounds user name Coolboyman, age 14, is spamming poorly made flash animations only to piss off Newground viewers and getting blammed. He suddenly had an idea to piss off more Newgrounds viewers, by spamming a flash file with the letter A. But he won’t post it as Coolboyman. Instead, he post it as StrawberryClock, self-claimed king of the portal. The flash file of the letter A is posted and it got a ton of negative reviews plus a blam.

The Birth of “B”

While StrawberryClock laugh at the negative reviews, he thought it would be a good idea to try it again, but this time with the red iconic letter B. Again he got negative reviews except this time something else happened. A week later, Newgrounds founder Tom Fulp awarded the B flash file Turd of the Week.

Gathering Up The Crew

On September 2001, three users related to StrawberryClock’s name appear to get together to start a group. These users/clocks are OrangeClock, RasberryClock, and AppleClock, which OrangeClock is credited for creating the group and making StrawberryClock their king. Together they call themselves The Clock Crew. PineappleClock, joined later after The Clock Crew is created and became one of the original 5 fruit clocks. Later, KnottsberryClock arrive to help the Clock Crew host the Clock Crew website. With the website created, endless clock members follow StrawberryClock’s footsteps and join the Clock Crew, and spam Newgrounds with their flash animations.

Clock Day

Every August 15th, Newgrounds celebrates Clock Day in honor of the Clock Crew to be the first crew to be recognised by Newgrounds. In this celebration, every flash animation is a Clock Crew related flash. Posting it on Clock Day will be voted 5 a lot.

Spin-offs & Rip-offs

In 2003, small groups of Newgrounds users form their own spin-off groups and spam Newgrounds like the Clock Crew did. Groups like the Lock Legion, the Dock Division and the Glock Group are the copycat version of the Clock Crew with different faces and also rivals. Other spin-offs and rip-offs include the Star Syndicate, the Uzi Union, the Block Band, the Barney Bunch, and the Plastic People.
