Here's the deal

Cyanide & Happiness has released an animated short every Thursday for the last 5 years. A lot of you might think all of our animations are made by 3 guys in their underwear, but we actually have an entire studio of writers, animators and other artists, only some of whom wear underwear. Long ago, the founders of C&H made the questionable decision to pay these artists in money, rather than exposure. It was a mistake, but what’s done is done, and there’s no turning back now. 

To keep consistently producing high quality animations about high quality butts and boners, we have always relied on YouTube ad revenue. Unfortunately, many of our shorts have been demonetized for their content.

And now, the YouTube adpocalpyse has hit us even harder. For some reason, advertisers and YouTube don’t want to run ads on racist superheros and guys eating plates of dicks.





Why Patreon?

Cyanide & Happiness has plenty of friends (at least a couple of dozen between Live Jounal, Friendster and and our secret Snapchat noods account), but what we need are ULTRA MEGA PALS. An Ultra Mega Pal is someone who enjoys the funny stuff we create (the aforementioned butts and boners) enough to help ensure we’re able to keep creating it. This means money. You giving it to us. Patreon allows this type of transaction, soooo… here we are.



What are the goals?

If the Ultra Mega Pals (Are you one? Do you want to give us money? Then you probably are!) can get us to $12k, we’ll be able to keep releasing 2 new animated shorts a month on our YouTube channel.

At $25k, we’re back up to WEEKLY ANIMATED SHORTS! We’ll bake ourselves a cake that says “STATUS QUO MAINTAINED” and sing a little song about fiscal solvency.

At $35k, we’ve got some room to breathe, so we can start working on Ted Bear 3! If we stay at this level after finishing Ted Bear 3, we’ll immediately start working on longer sequels to more of our fan favorite shorts (Shark Dad? Sure! Rad!).
