Sometimes I still happen upon their gaming videos, pop up in my recs. The zany thumbnails are as unpleasant as ever. Back in the day, when all the exclusive information went to them, I didn’t mind watching their antics that much. This was until the bad animal care got involved. Quite strange to see that they’re still going strong; maybe I gotta make YouTube Kids content if it’s that lucrative! Creepy Spider-Man and Elsa videos here I come!

I remember laughing at the Thumpback sneeze one but yeah very... childish

Animal care?

The dad has done some bad stuff, it's out there.

I miss FamilyGamerTV; sure he was a little boring, I hated him as an 11/12-yo because I thought he was dreadfully boring, but for his style it was fine and he was always way better than these guys. Blech.

Animal care?


Just basic “keeping a fish in a bowl” type of stuff. They owned some hermit crabs for a while iirc. Seemed like an impulse buy, and they had paint on their shells. More of the pet suppliers fault, but that’s toxic to those animals. Because of this, they died pretty quickly. I don’t remember ever seeing a terrarium or anything for them and they looked to be treated more like toys, with the kids chasing each other around with crabs in hand, trying to tag each other. I think one got stepped on at some point.

It gets real when the oldest child ends up throwing and hurting a frog in Hawaii. Thankfully, I remember her being told that was wrong, and she did realize that and understand later.

I’m not trying to slander these kids or anything, especially since these events happened years ago and, being kids, they probably didn’t realize all this. Hell, I didn’t know about that painted shells were lethal until I saw a Tumblr post about it. I’m hoping they’ve learned more about empathy now. Or animal husbandry. Sorry, I sound like some self-righteous **** now. Didn’t intend for this to be this lengthy...

i always had a feeling that something was iffy with that channel. even as a kid i could tell they were kind of shilling or something.

also makes me kind of uncomfortable that they were using the kids as a marketing point. ofc, its not like they were on live tv or anything, but that kind of attention as a child can mess you up.

i checked the channel, and they havent posted for about a year now. likely because skylanders is over. i hope they can go back to living a normal life.

They have a second channel. FGeeTV. Yeap, throwing shade at the original FamilyGamerTV.
Not sure if they still upload there, but there.

At least at the beginning of SBaG you could tell the kids genuinely liked the series. I couldn't tell you an exact point but you could tell that eventually they lost interest and the dad kept making them do it.

And lord it's honestly creepy to think about just how hard Activision's favoritism for them was.

pff 'favoritism'. i wouldn't be surprised if the dad was working for activision in some way.

i think they went into the tfb office and some point. and it looks like they had all of the skylanders. yes im throwing shade because im somewhat jealous.

yikes. looks like fgeetv is still up and running, too. i dont really want to watch their videos rn, but im still disgusted that the kids are being touted like a selling point.
