History

Animutation

On June 14th, 2001, Cicierega released a low-quality flash animation called "The Japanese Pokerap."[1] It was the first video of the Animutation genre,[2] a style using a vast array of pop culture references mixed together to create a humorous and often shabby-looking video. Cicierega created one of the most popular examples of the genre in "Hyakugojyuuichi!!!" which earned him an interview with Salon[3] at age 14.



Potter Puppet Pals

Potter Puppet Pals is a popular webseries created by Cicierega which is a spoof of the Harry Potter series of books and movies. Although Potter Puppet Pals is Neil’s original creation, there have been a number of additional Potter Puppet Pals videos created by fans.

Beginning late 2003,[4] Cicierega created his first flash animated Potter Puppet Pals video, "Bothering Snape."[5] In late September 2006, Neil published the first of the live action Potter Puppet Pals on his Youtube account.[6] Shortly after, in March of 2007 Neil released Potter Puppet Pals in "The Mysterious Ticking Noise."



Lemon Demon

Since 2003, Cicierega has released 9 albums under the moniker "Lemon Demon."[7] One of the notable results of this project was Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, a flash animation Cicierega created with Shawn Vulliez released December 22nd, 2005.[8] The video shows a giant battle between dozens of pop-culture icons and has been viewed millions of times on Newgrounds and YouTube.



Mouth Mixtapes

Cicierega has released three mashup mixtapes under his real name: Mouth Sounds,[11] Mouth Silence,[12] and Mouth Moods. The mixtapes mash up popular songs that have grown into memes; popular songs in the mixtapes include All Star and Smooth. His first, Mouth Sounds (2014), has gained over 647,000 listens on Soundcloud. [9] On January 24th, 2017, he released Mouth Moods (shown below), which was favorably reviewed by Select All.[10]
