Hayk Manukyan
Hayk Manukyan is an Armenian-American cartoonist, most well known for his flash cartoons on YouTube and New Grounds, which he makes in his spare time while working for different animation studios. On Youtube he also posted (live action) vlogs for a time in the guise of his alter-ego Harut.

Web cartoons by Hayk Manukyan

His cartoons can be viewed here.


  • Amazingly Embarrassing Grandparents: In the one-shot "Armenian Grandpa Job Interview".
  • Animation Bump: Neenja: Way of the Harut has some impressive animation compared to other Harut shorts.
  • Art Evolution: In early shorts Abo and Karo are drawn without any outlines, reminiscent of South Park's animation style.
  • Art Shift: After Harut was put into the Abo and Karo series as their father he started being drawn in their style.
  • Big Eater: Abo
  • Canon Immigrant: Harut into the Abo and Karo series.
  • Censor Box: A hilariously small one is put over a naked Karo in "Chocolate Vodka".
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Harut in Neenja: Way of the Harut.
  • Fat Idiot: Abo
  • Name's the Same: In the episode where Harut interviews "Michael Jackson" (an old white dentist).
  • Straight Man: Karo
  • Talking to Himself: Manukyan usually voices everyone in his cartoons.
  • Vocal Evolution: Karo's voice gradually becomes lower. In the early shorts it sounds like he's had too much helium.
  • Vot Ocksent?: In an episode of his Harut series, the Armenian-accented Harut pulls up to a drive-through window and asks for a number twelve, pronouncing it "twerve". This leads to a huge misunderstanding, with Harut screaming "Vhy you no understand?!"
    • In his vlog, Hayk tells a (probably fake) story about how he got in trouble while returning a VCR to a store because the way he said "as a matter of fact" came out sounding like "as motter focked", and couldn't understand why everyone got so upset. When the problem is traced to his accent, he replies "Vot ocksent?"
