Killer Bean 2: The Party is a short released in 2000,

The concept for Killer Bean came in a short produced by Jeff Lew in the late 1990s entitled "Killer Bean: The Interrogation", which was later called "Killer Bean 1". Jeff Lew intended this short only to teach himself animation, and it only received about 3000 hits. After practicing animation for about 2 years, Lew started work on "Killer Bean 2.1: The Party", a 7-minute short. "Killer Bean 2" took about 3 years to create, and was released on iFilm in 2000. In about 6 months, it received about a million views, which was significant before YouTube.[4] A later edit, "Killer Bean 2.1", was uploaded to YouTube in 2009. Killer Bean 2.1 has since gained more than 2.5 million views on YouTube since its initial upload in 2009.[5]
