I recently read this article where people claimed that YouTube Poop videos are bad because they take characters intended for children and make them say/do inappropriate things. I personally think that article is a load of you know what and I'm going to say why. For one, YouTube Poopers aren't the only people who make children's shows dirty and we certainly aren't going to be the last, I can almost guarantee that. Ever since kid shows have existed, there have been comedy shows that make fun of them and exaggerate tropes often associated with children in humorous adult ways. Shows like Happy Tree Friends, Wonder Showzen, Robot Chicken, Drawn Together, Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, some of the of the cutaway jokes on Family Guy, Greg the Bunny, South Park's Imaginationland trilogy, and for an example that relies more of shivers than giggles, a good portion of creepypasta stories are just a few examples of the many adult shows/stories that often make fun of things for kids. People who make jokes like that aren't trying to destroy the innocent minds of children by showing their favorite characters doing nasty things, I honestly believe they only do it out of nostalgia because they enjoy looking back on their childhoods and joking about things they grew up on in a humorous, but certainly not mean spirited style is one of the many ways adults recall childhood memories. I do not believe in the slightest that YTP is some "evil tool meant to desensitize kids to adult topics" because think about it, there are just as many YTPs that parody adult shows as there are ones that make kid shows into something vulgar. I don't know how many YTPs I've seen of things like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, various horror movies like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, Rick & Morty, and even Donald Trump during my years of being a regular YTP viewer. In fact, one of the very first poops I ever saw was making fun of the movie Kill Bill which certainly is NOT for kids by any stretch of the imagination. In that article, they were even comparing YouTube Poops to those awful Elsagate videos. REALLY!? I bet most people in the YTP community can tell you that those Elsagate "things" are just downright despicable. Are we YouTube Poopers hypocrites for feeling that way? No, because YTP is far different than those horribly offensive cartoons. Mainly because those Elsagate videos are actually intended FOR kids, YTPs are clearly supposed to be adult comedy. I just wanted to point that out how ridiculous that article was and how judging by the many things I've known about YTP throughout almost a decade of being an expert on the genre, the article seems to get everything about those hilarious videos completely wrong.
