Adult Swim’s Cartoon Apocalypse Trailer Had Its YouTube Age Restriction Lifted, According to Reports

Published

Pitches have a habit of creating such a strong emotional response in viewers that a fan base develops before the film has been greenlit. The debut of Pibby, better known as Come and Learn with Pibby! and Learning with Pibby: Apocalypse, on Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block Adult Swim has been a huge success. With superheroes and vintage cartoons, it grabbed everyone’s attention as an animated comedy horror. It has, however, already experienced some drama when YouTube age-restricted the video.

What exactly is Adult Swim’s ‘Learning with Pibby’ program?

On Nov. 3, 2020, Cartoon Network filed for a trademark for “Learning with Pibby: Apocalypse” according to Trademarkia.

On October 30, 2021, Adult Swim aired a video called ‘Come Learn with Pibby!’ It appeared to be the debut of a new preschool program on Cartoon Network. However, things quickly took a turn for the worse.

The colorful saturated horizon was covered in a pulsating, black mass, and Pibby was sent flying across diverse cartoon dimensions. She encounters Superman- and Robin-inspired heroes, as well as Fred Flintstone, but the black mass continues to assault these realms.

“Pibby is suddenly uprooted from her secure, pre-school environment and placed into an unknown world. To prevent the cartoon apocalypse, she must grow up, LEARN, and become a badass,” The video description reads in corrupted letters.

Adventure Time fans were left wanting more after seeing beloved cartoon characters like Finn and Jake transformed into unrecognizable monsters. The Pibby trailer, on the other hand, met with a few snags.

The trailer for ‘Learning with Pibby’ has been age-restricted on YouTube.

Within one week of the Learning with Pibby trailer being published, it had more than 3 million views. Fans rallied behind it, and a movement was born. The demand for more grew considerably. Adult Swim’s viewers wanted the network to take notice and greenlight a show with comic-book-style heroes and corrupting cartoons.

However, the video was restricted after its first week on YouTube. Because of this, anyone under the age of 18 who does not have a YouTube account or is attempting to view the video on a third-party site would be unable to do so. It was one of Adult Swim’s few age-restricted videos.

The ban on people under the age of 18 slowed traffic to a halt. Many fans were disappointed by the conclusion of the animated horror series, which prompted YouTube to receive protests from its users.

On Thursday, however, there was some good news for fans.

After YouTube lifted the age restriction, views increased.

When YouTube adjusted the age restriction after nearly two weeks, the Learning with Pibby trailer was a huge success. The video site allowed it to happen. Adult Swim, on the other hand, fought for Pibby’s survival.

Many fans see this as a victory. They anticipate that the Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, and other well-known cartoon characters will be corrupted in a possible television program.

The trailer has had over 5 million views since opening and is continuing to rise.

With all of this enthusiasm, Adult Swim is likely to give the show a full series.

A YouTuber from Utah has been arrested and charged with accepting fraudulent claims from AAA.

Published

A hurricane man known for a popular YouTube channel called “Matt’s Off Road Recovery” has been charged with insurance fraud and accused of defrauding AAA through his firm, Winder Towing.

The arraignment for Matthew David Wetzel, 46, who was charged in late October with one count of making a false or fraudulent insurance claim, a second degree felony, is scheduled for next week. AAA is accused of paying more than $15,000 to Winder Towing in order to cover allegations made with known misrepresentations between January 2019 and August 2020.

According to charging papers, the Utah Insurance Fraud Division was contacted by a consumer with a complaint about AAA. After an investigation, the division determined that many of the claims made to AAA had significant errors regarding the claimed services or tow locations, according to court documents.

In one case, AAA covered three claims for a vehicle tow to Salt Lake City, totaling $2,800. The claim recipient told the Utah Insurance Fraud Division that his automobiles were not towed as he had stated in the claims. The individual agreed to receive construction supplies from Wetzel and the unnamed person submitted claims to AAA instead of paying Wetzel directly, according to the allegations.

According to the allegations, Wetzel accepted responsibility for fraudulent claims in a phone conversation, stating that he had supplied towing services to the individual on separate occasions and asking him to file an AAA claim rather of requesting payment or billing the customer at the time of service.

According to the complaint, Wetzel also allegedly stated that he would provide services without immediately billing the person, then later ask them to submit a claim.

“According to the investigator, Wetzel said he never completed a project that did not have a real service associated with it,” according to the report.

In another case, charging documents claim that Wetzel assisted with a tow for someone who did not have an AAA membership. According to the complaint, Wetzel advised the individual to join AAA, wait a few days before filing a claim, and so on. The paperwork claims Wetzel advised the customer to obtain an AAA membership, wait a few days before filing a claim, and so on. According to authorities in Apple Valley, California, charges were filed for a tow from Las Vegas to Washington County when the actual tow was from Apple Valley.

The third instance of fraud charged in the accusations was for an off-road tow of a Polaris RZR, which is not covered by AAA, according to the document. The owner of the RZR reportedly utilized his buddy’s AAA membership and stated that Wetzel’s business towed a truck rather than the RZR.

Video of the tow and Wetzel speaking to the owners was recorded, according on the paper, then posted to Wetzel’s YouTube channel, which features videos of off-road tows.

The channel has nearly 900,000 subscribers.

He claimed to have gained 200,000 subscribers in August 2018 and 1 million followers last December, according to the page. According to the profile, the channel was established in October 2006; only a year after 2005 when the platform opened.

People are mourning him by commenting that they’re remembering all the time they spent watching his videos and hoping he “rests in peace.”
