Inanimate Insanity is the second object show ever created on YouTube. It is created by AnimationEpic. The first season ran from April 1, 2011, to December 7, 2012, with 18 episodes. The second season started on April 2, 2013, and currently has 12 episodes and 4 more in the making. Many object show fans say it's the best object show along with Battle for Dream Island.
Why It Rocks
- The writing is amazing, mostly in the second season, and so does the animation.
- Unlike other object shows, it focuses more on the story and characters rather than the challenges and eliminations.
- Many characters are great and likable.
- Great animation in the second half of Season 1 and Season 2.
- The challenges, when there are challenges, are fun to watch.
- It was the second object show ever made, behind Battle for Dream Island.
- It has some well-made musical numbers (e.g. “Afterlife in the Limelight,” and “Just Like Me”).
- Hailey and Kacie Chapman (the voices of Microphone and Soap) are claimed to be one of the first female voice actors in object show history (not counting Adam Katz‘ sister, who voiced Taco).
- The animation in the first half of Season 1 was downright mediocre.
- Annoying/bad attempts at being funny in earlier episodes.
- It had a massive cliffhanger for a few years, similar to BFDIA.
- Paintbrush can get pretty unapologetically stern at times, as they take things far too seriously and mostly physically abuse anyone who slacks off. Thankfully, they have learned their consequences by the time before they were eliminated in Alternate Reality Show.
- The “Keep On Cleaning” musical number is pretty mediocre for some fans.
