Swoozie

This YouTuber started captioning about a year ago. Since then, most of his videos, but not all, are captioned. His videos tell short stories, often with animation. Other videos are traditional YouTuber videos.

https://www.youtube.com/user/swoozie06


Cyanide and Happiness

Cyanide and Happiness began on YouTube seven years ago. These simply animated adult cartoons defy categorization. After watching a few episodes, we observed humor (sometimes sick humor), irony, sexuality, drugs, violence, and more in the cartoons. As an example of the nature of the humor, in the screenshot below, the background has a poster that says "An Apple A Day...means medical staff and equipment cutbacks. Try a burger." (Most, but not all, cartoons are captioned.)
