Pencilmation is a American YouTube animation that uses 2D animation founded by Ross Bollinger (wouldn't say he's responsible for it). It is made to where if drawings came to life on a notebook. In late 2017 and early 2018, it became very popular and became one of the YouTube Kids Cartoons and still is to this day.

Bad Qualities

  1. Much as you would've expected, they have clickbait, with inappropriate thumbnails such as one stickman about to get drilled and that same exact stickman actually twerking behind a sticklady.
  2. Pencilmate in the modern videos looks absolutely nothing like any stickman. No other stickman would a have a solid-color circle as their body.
  3. They show weird and creepy expressions to the point where it makes awful show designs like The Problem Solverz look supreme by comparison.
  4. Almost every plot for all episodes are either just childish, cliched, or even just disturbing. Examples are these:
    • Pencilmate has to dance in front of a rapper, and predictably, he won by putting some Kazoo! cover.
    • Pencilmate and Mini Pencilmate (a yellow stickkid) constantly keeps blowing in a balloon, which causes the blue stickman to get a huge headache and to have some extremely disturbing dream.
    • Pencilmate pops some popcorn, and somehow the popcorn becomes alive, however, all of them burn in a very horrifying and terrible way.
    • The episode called "Unfarted Territory" which you can guess from the title alone how disgusting it is.
  5. Some have different designs and animation, which just looks rigid.
  6. One video contains the issue of clickbait, which is ironic, and in a way hypocritical, considering the channel clickbaits as well. Notably In the thumbnail where Sonic is seen racing with the Radrunner but never happens in the video.
  7. Their videos are so long that they had to put so many ads for revenue.
  8. Pencilmate is an annoying idiot who causes trouble everywhere he goes, and is also a Butt Monkey-type of character.
  9. Pencilmiss (The pink sticklady) is a bully Mary-Sue cliche who ALWAYS beats Pencilmate and gives him a hard time.
  10. So many gross-out jokes and thumbnails such as one with PencilMiss farting in Pencilmate's face.
  11. The voice acting is obnoxious.

Good Qualities

  1. Most of the cartoons that the channel makes actually have good animation.
  2. Some kids may enjoy it after all, despite the weird clickbait thumbnails, they mostly don't have inappropriate content, unlike many other kids channels.
  3. Back then, they used to be down-to-earth and weren't so money-driven.
  4. Some likable episodes, such as Scrambled Leggs and ''Shock and Roll''.
  5. Pencilmate and Pencilmiss can be likable at times.
  6. It didn't used to be this bad.


  1. It was created in 2007, but they started uploading videos in 2009.
