The first season of the original Neurotically Yours Series is now up on NG!

Neurotically Yours Original Series Playlist

Season 2 is rolling out tonight and will be added to the playlist, and hopefully I'll finally have a complete playlist of the original series of Neurotically Yours out there.


For those who want like, a physical release or digital download, I'm working on that too. But a complete BluRay collection will probably be about 4-5 discs which will be fairly expensive to make. I'll have to do a kickstarter or something. Digital download might be easier. Who knows. Just want to make sure the work gets out there as YouTube is being an ass about content recently. So thank god for NG. At least I can make the content available for everyone somewhere. :)

Just a quick note that the original episodes of Foamy are slowly rolling out on Newgrounds, so I think after today the majority of the first season will be available. Also the "Squirrels & Robots" podcast is still going. Yeah it was going to be a test to see what I could do, but it's got a life of it's own now. So if you haven't heard it, it's on YouTube (For now), Spotify. Apple Podcasts. and Google Podcasts Also free audio download for Patrons on Patreon


(I would post it here, but NG isn't really a Podcast platform... unless that's changed)


Spread the word of Foamy! 'Cause there's not nearly enough logic in this world.

Original Foamy Series Playlist


Working on getting all the original series Foamy episodes up on NG (Again for some reason). Seems a lot of them are gone? I have no idea why, but it's a ton of work now to get things back to the way they were. NG only allows 2 posts a day, so it'll be a slow roll. I will try to post 2 original series episodes a day in order to get them all up on NG, with new episodes for the current series being peppered in when they're available. Also some 4y-Records etc. Kinda crazy how much content I've created over the last 19 years as I go through it. Even crazier that other platforms are less open minded about cartoons as society "progressed". A ton of episodes from the first season were removed from YouTube recently like "Almost Serious Suicide", some Foamy rants and that type of stuff. Of course, "The Jiggly Butt" is also gone, but Cardi B can make millions.... seems fair -_-

Random News:

Since I'm always pressed for time, I'll try to keep this update short:

1: Monetization Seems to be restored on YOUTUBE for now, but a lot of episodes have been removed.

2: Removed Episode: I'm Trying to get them up on NEWGROUNDS (Again), but it will take a while. Each episodes is a form to fill out basically, and there's like, 400 episodes.

3: The Squirrels & Robots Podcast seems to be fun for me to do, though it's basically a zero income project on most platforms it's posted to. (But it's fine, folks have been helping out on Patreon ... just letting folks know if you plan on starting a podcast, don't expect to make tons of money. Just doesn't happen. So do it 'cause you WANT to.


4: Sue Z. June! I've been working more hours than I should to get the character where I want her to be, and things are starting to gel. Plans for her are to be the "Germaine" for an alt-style series with Foamy & Pilz-E. Since Germaine is a fairly dark-artsy-self-loathing character, I kinda want to see how the squirrels would work with some one who has their crap together. I tried that with Germaine, but her personality is hard-wired to be artsy & depressed. The tormented poet type. She's not the type of character you can slap a new personality on and expect it to work. She is what she is. Sue Z. June is the opposite of that. Yeah, she'll have her moments, but I think mentally, the character is stronger and can bounce back from things a lot better than Germaine. Also the squirrels wont have to spend their time trying to "better" her personality with cutting observations. I'll work on things and stuff will be posted when it's posted. (Check INSTAGRAM for character design...or just look at my doodles here).

5: 4y-Records. I've upgraded all the old episodes to HD, but 3 of them wont be able to be posted on YOUTUBE for guideline reasons. However, based on how people ... react to the series. I've recorded vocals for a bunch of new episodes. The downside of all this is, 2020 is a shit year for over-sensitive individuals who can not accept a difference of opinion. So, hypothetically, if the 4y Guy picks apart "Animal Crossing"... how much crap will I have to deal with. Keep in mind. 4y-Records was never a "oh, this sucks... you suck!" type commentary. It's always tried to be cutting, yet honest, bringing the not-so-obvious flaws and back stories to the forefront of a conversation and ripping up any illusions one may have about something they "love" or define themselves by. Imagine the 4y-Guy commenting on someone's favorite anime as a "lack-luster animation filled with pan & scan still frames, in an attempt at hiding the obvious cheap production values and voice acting so dreadful a hamster in a blender sounds more inviting both visually & audibly." Probably not gonna make people happy. Should I care? Nah. I generally don't. Some of the stuff I criticize in the series I actually like, but I've never been so wrapped up in anything that I need it to be validated by others. (Including my own work), but apparently, people are super-serious, about what they like. Imagine the reaction of a 4y-Records episode commenting on BTS. We'll see as the HD episodes roll out. 

That's about it. Thanks for helpin' out and hangin' in there while the tossed salad of life continues.

As of this post, monetization SEEMS to be restored on YouTube... but at the cost of a LOT of Foamy episodes.

It doesn't really surprise me, as YouTube has become so much more PC than it was back in 2009 when I started there, so it was basically a situation of cutting off your arm to save the body over there.... at least that's what it felt like.

So for those hangin' in there and supporting... this last 24 hours has been... a bit stressful. Hopefully this is permanent restoration of ad-rev, but it's YouTube. Purple haired goth girls might be next weeks public enemy number 1 .

Without warning, notice, or a head's up at any time, ALL content on my YT channel was demonetized at like, 4AM today. So for those who want to help out : Patreon


Unfortunately I had to go through my channel and do a mass deleting of questionable content (which has been fine on YT for a decade), so unfortunately, if you watch there... it's not there anymore. New episodes will still be posted in the usual places, but the original series HD upgrades will be spotty from here on out.


YT generally requires 30 days before I can re-apply for partnership or get re-monetized, but hopefully they'll listen to my request. (Dawn B. is out of work due to COVID closing her job down, so I WAS supporting both of us with my work... which is tricky for any content creator to do.)


If you can, please retweet my pinned tweet on Twitter

Sometimes tweets are the only way companies listen. :(

Made a playlist on NG for those who don't want to watch stuff on FB or YT

Foamy Playlist (Current Series)

Playlist has all the current episodes from the current series. Will add new ones when they're posted here. :)

For those who haven't been keeping up, i've been working on a new character for the Foamy/Neurotically Yours series... probably a spin off though or something, if anything. Anyway...

This character went through a LOT of development (check previous posts). I worked on this character through a series of comic strips rather than doing everything behind the scenes. So I guess if you ever wondered how stuff evolves in my head. (I mean, she's COMPLETELY different from what I started with. It's madness.

Posted a series of "Character Development" comic strips recently where Foamy tweaks a potential characters appearance over a few episodes. (It's generally what I do when I add a character, but tend to just keep the comics in a sketchbook, unpublished. This time I'd figure I'd share the process a bit. So those interested, have a look, but the image below will probably be the final version of the new character... who I have no idea what to do with.


For me, I tend to have to draw a bunch of comics where the characters interact with each other prior to tossing them in a cartoon, so those will be posted over time, and hopefully she'll make her way into the series, or maybe be in a different series. Who knows.

Posted a bunch of alt style doodles with a possible new character but I generally never know how Foamy & the rest will interact with new personalities until I actually put them in the same room. :) So check out the art uploads if you're interested and be safe out there!
