CarbotAnimations is the name of YouTube channel created by the Canadian animator Jonathan Burton. It focuses on series of cartoons parodying several popular Blizzard Entertainment games such as StarCraft II (and BroodWar), World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch. Respectively, the ongoing cartoon series are named: StarCrafts, WoWcraft, HurtStone, HeroStorm and Underwatch. There are also three Diablo III episodes named "Diablols", but this has been discontinued.
Background[edit | edit source]
Jonathan Burton started creating cartoons on 2012 two years after StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was released. He was inspired by Blizzard itself, so he supported Blizzard by making videos about their games and advertising their new features.
Jonathan Burton went to school for animation, and during his second year he got bored with it. And so started to use YouTube as a free option. He did three episodes before he released the first one and within the first month he got twenty-five thousand subscribers.
The CarBot Animations Team grows and shrinks at times: They have two animators that Jonathan Burton met online, who are part-time. Jonathan Burton himself does most of the animation and storyboarding, his brother Sam helps out with storyboarding and ideas, and does all the audio for the episodes, and his wife Justine does "a lot of the taxes and all the fun stuff".
Heroes of the Storm Videos[edit | edit source]
HeroStorm[edit | edit source]
Despite the simplified cartoonish art style of the series, the Heroes are still surprisingly recognizable as the characters they are intended to be. Many of the episodes parody common situations encountered in gameplay, such as the childish Chromie always missing her skillshots, or Johanna being unstoppable, which is exaggerated to humorous levels.

During his IdBeCoolif series, Jonathan Burton suggests Heroes with his concepts.
