Several of his works in Flash animation, along with multiple music videos and works of video art, have garnered large followings.Notable animation sequences from Firth include Salad Fingers, as well as the comedic Burnt Face Man series.Firth has stated that it is not his intention to upset or offend.It is a common misconception that Firth is the actor who plays Devvo.

Imagine a small boy in short pants sitting in the front row of his local 'Flicks' during the mid-Fifties. Then the grumpy old commissionaire arrived, shone his torch at the offending boy and clouted him across the back of the head - 'Shut your cake 'ole you stupid little squirt! Humiliated beyond belief, the small boy's woeful sobbing was quite audible and he missed the rest of film through a stream of tears.
It is one of two picture houses in Horsforth: the 'Imperial' on Town Street or the 'Glenroyal' on Okay, perhaps this scruffy urchin can't remember which cinema it was or even the exact year, but he does recall what happened next…he'd arrived in the middle of a public information film and the magnificent image of a speeding Class A4 60017 Flying Fox appeared on the screen. At the same time he feared someone in the audience would recognise him, tell his mum and dad, which meant another beating when he got home!
Some of his work may be described as dark humour, while much of it is simply experimental, using many different styles.
My name is David Firth and I make things every day. If you want to be kept up to date with what I am doing please follow me on TWITTER and swirl in my endless loop. Almost every animation and video I release has some Toybox in it. Some stuff I make for soundtracks, and some is just for listening to. Most of these tracks have been used somewhere but this selection of 15 tracks are specifically chosen because I think they work on their own.
