Our Favorite MeatCanyon Animations
Hunter August Hancock, also known as MeatCanyon, is an artist, YouTuber, and streamer. He makes animations that combine pop culture trends with comedy and body horror. His videos walk the fine line between funny and unsettling, and I love it.
I have been a fan of MeatCanyon for a few years now. As a huge fan of offbeat comedy, parody, and horror, his videos scratch that weird itch I get for disturbing content. Today, I wanted to introduce you to my ten favorite MeatCanyon animations. Enjoy!
When You Wish Upon A Star
‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ was the first MeatCanyon video I ever watched. After seeing this, I was hooked and have been a fan of MeatCanyon animations ever since. I love seeing Pinocchio as this Lovecraftian-style monster. Why would Geppetto make this monstrosity?
I always knew that there was a sinister reason as to why Ed, Edd, and Eddy love jawbreakers. Jokes aside, Ed, Edd, and Eddy was kind of a creepy show to begin with. MeatCanyon takes it to a whole new level.
Jawbreaker is part one of a two-part animation. If you liked this video, make sure to check out the epic conclusion in Jawbreaker 2.
King Of Mukbang
“Trolls come to my channel and tell me to eat healthy food, but if I eat healthy food NO ONE WATCHES THE VIDEO!”
In ‘King of Mukbang’, MeatCanyon really captures the essence of the Nikocado Avocado’s YouTube persona. He also does an excellent job of humanizing him, and showing why many of us are worried for Nikocado’s health. Many people believe that Nikocado is an example of how SEO algorithms can impact your health.
In case you haven’t been following the history of this video, Nikocado did make a response video to this cartoon. MeatCanyon also followed up with his own rebuttal. While this animation brings up serious issues, it is all in good fun. MeatCanyon really respects Nikocado as a creator.
Gumballs In The Park
See, this is what I love about MeatCanyon animations. He is answering the questions that I have been having for years.
This time around, the question is: How do Benson’s gumballs work in Regular Show? The gumballs in his head kind of work as a five-o-clock shadow, but what happens if you attempt to take one out and eat it? Mordechai and Rigby find out the hard way.
Lasagna – A Garfield Cartoon
I always knew there was something wrong with Jon Arbuckle. I am really happy to see MeatCanyon do his own version of the ‘I’m Sorry Jon’ creepy Garfield trend that has been popular for the past decade.
However, this animation flips the concept on its head. This time around, it is Jon Arbuckle that is the predator. I also love that Jon’s art style changes throughout the short.
A Regrettable Office Cartoon
I’ve probably put more hours into The Office than any other TV show. It’s not my favorite series of all time, but it is great as background noise, or to put on before bed.
MeatCanyon does an excellent job of playing off of the tropes of the different characters. Each character is a monsterous and disgusting version of themselves. However, the base personality of each Dunder Mifflin worker is still there, and it is hilarious.
I also love the music in this animation. It features warped and disturbing versions of The Office theme song. It fits the overall vibe of the video really well.
The Great Reptar Adventure
For me, this is the ultimate MeatCanyon nostalgia video. I was a huge fan of Rugrats as a child. I loved this humorous and disturbing take on the Nickelodeon series.
This animation plays around with one of the core concepts behind Rugrats. We always see the world through the perspective of the babies. While the adult characters play a large role in the show, we really only see him in regard to what is happening with the children. What is life really like in the Pickles’ house?
These Jokes Are Impractical
As someone who has watched many, many hours of Impractical Jokers, I was very happy to see MeatCanyon make his own short cartoon about the show. His renditions of Joe, Sal, and Murray are hilarious. I’m not sure why Brian Quinn is a blank white blob, but I love it.
The plot takes a dark twist in classic MeatCanyon fashion. Murray must rob a bank, and he can’t say no because it is his punishment for being this episode’s loser. We’ve all joked about Impractical Jokers taking things to extreme levels, but Meatcanyon took action and drew the scenario for us.
Five Nights At Markipliers
Everyone knows I love Five Nights At Freddy’s. It is one of my favorite game series. In Five Nights At Markipliers, MeatCanyon sets up a FNAF-esque scenario. However, instead of possessed animatronic animals, the player character is being hunted by different versions of the YouTuber Markiplier.
What I love about this cartoon is the attention to detail when it comes to Five Nights At Freddy’s. The ‘night’ starts with a message from Phone Guy, the different areas of the map match the areas in FNAF 1. He’s got the party room, the broom closet, and even Pirate’s Cove (Dairy Cove, to satiate Markiplier’s love of milk).
An Unexpected Dish
I am a huge fan of cooking shows, especially Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. The animation by MeatCanyon pokes some fun at the show. His impression of Gordon Ramsay is brilliant.
It also addresses a big question that many fans ask: How real are these cooking-based reality shows? Fans of Kitchen Nightmares will remember the episode where the restaurant staff accuses Gordon of planting a dead mouse by the door.
