Poorly Made 3D Animations are videos or GIFs featuring a variety of original productions and parodies of well-known animations that are generally rendered in subpar quality. On YouTube, numerous videos that can be classified as "poorly made 3D animations" have gained cult followings for their surreal elements.


One of the first poorly made 3D animations was Colin's Bear Animation, an animation made by Colin Sanders for his final assignment for an Animation Arts class. It features a bear dancing to the song "Funky Monkey Dance" from the Nintendo game Mother 3. Sander's friend uploaded the video to Youtube in December 2007 and as of May 2014, it has over 2,250,000 views. The video was one of the first poorly made animations which was both surreal and considered humorous.


During the 1990s, animations were introduced to ten-pin bowling alleys and would play on the leader board every time someone bowled. While these did not circulate the internet, they were also known for their poor quality and surrealism.


In 2009, YouTuber wendyvanity (now 'madcatlady') began uploading poorly-made animations rendered in the 3D animation program Daz. Due to the bizarre nature in the videos (which included text-to-speech voice acting), she gathered a small following. Her most popular video so far is "meow! sad toy cats.wmv" (shown below) which has 700,000 views on YouTube as of May 2014. Her videos "Meow meow I am a cat" and "Tom R. Toe" are also quite popular.

Numerous other YouTubers have since uploaded many surreal 3D animation videos using text-to-speech, some of the most notable animators include seinfieldspitstain, ratboygenius, madcatlady, chriddof, FunVideoTV and Really3D.
