Harvey Rothman is a British animator, musician, and YouTuber who makes surreal, comedic animations. Most of his videos are less than a minute long, but his most popular video is "Foxy gets Hooked", an almost 9-minute-long video based on Five Nights at Freddy's, explaining Harvey's take on how the character Foxy got his Hook Hand.

Harvey also contributes to some Multi-Animator Project "reanimated" collabs, such as the one for The Legend Of Zelda C Di Games.

His channel can be found here.


Tropes relating to Harvey and his animations include:

  • Dirty Coward: When a fight breaks between Foxy and Freddy in "Foxy gets Hooked", Bonnie looks like he's going to aid Freddy... only to quickly take shelter in a rabbit cage, transforming into a shivering , realistic-looking bunny as well.
  • Furry Reminder: In "Doxy gets Hooked", Bonnie transforms into a realistic-looking rabbit when he seeks shelter in a rabbit cage the moment Freddy and Foxy start fighting.
  • Inkblot Cartoon Style:
  • Insane Troll Logic: In "Foxy gets Hooked", when Foxy switches to his "pirate" mode, we get to see inside Freddy's brain. We see "Foxy = Pirate" and "Pirate = Mutiny". The two "Pirate"s meld together and disappear, leaving "Foxy = Mutiny". Freddy assumes that Foxy is going to betray him just for being himself and gets mad at the unlucky fox.
  • Advertisement:
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": In "Foxy gets Hooked", Freddy pronounces "mutiny" like "muttony". Foxy figures out what he means and pronounces it correctly.
  • Polka Dork: In "The Spongey Show", Squidward meets a guy playing accordion, and finds him annoying.
    "Oh, this music is terrible!"
  • Sticky Situation: "Foxy gets Hooked" suggests that the reason that the security guard can't move around is because someone put glue on his chair. He stays stuck to it for the whole video, forcing him to crawl home.
  • Stylistic Suck: "The Spongey Show" has very intentionally crude animation.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: In "Foxy gets Hooked", Foxy has a switch on the back of his neck with "Poncy Brit" and "Pirate" settings. He switches to the latter once he gets his hook hand.
  • Unnecessarily Creepy Robot: Lampshaded in "Foxy Gets Hooked". When Bonnie and Foxy stop in front of the "Kid's Corner" bulletin board, some of the drawings on the board ask "What is with the eyes?" referring to the animatronics' strangely Creepy Shadowed Undereyes. One of the drawings even suggests that the animatronics are high. invoked
