    • Further he's annoyed at how the show portrays teenage girls arguing about who's boyfriend is the best, he states that maybe a "buck-toothed lady, living in a trailer down the road, named Bertha" would talk like this.
    • Lauren spilling some chocolate on her face. To Strider's bewilderment, the sound team decided to play 5 Laugh Tracks. Strider parodies that by showing himself spilling some water and the Laugh Track losing it.

    • When he gets to Fish Hooks, he shows the similarly titled black-and-white film "Fish Hooky" instead. He shows a clip of one kid doing a dopey laugh and decides to imitate it. Another kid doing a creepy laugh has him jumping back in fear.
    • He thinks that the Jessie theme song is catchy. Cue him dancing until noticing that the camera is still on, he simply waves at it sheepishly.

    • One thing that annoys him about Austin & Ally is Austin's haircut. He lists that one twice.
    • Another thing that annoys him is how unrealistic it is that Trish is getting a new job every episode. He sketches a more realistic approach: "Guess who was unemployed! Guess who sold everything on eBay! Guess who got kicked out of the YMCA!"
    • He's utterly horrified with Ant Farm portraying an older woman in sexy clothing and completely loses it when a young actor tries pretend to be a teenage girl. The actor's voice makes Roger Rabbit cringe.

    • The entire rant against Hannah Montana.

    • The shot of him impatiently waiting for What's Up? to go on.
    • He lists two voice actors from What's Up, one lady, who had two entries on IMDB, one of them being "What's Up", the movie we're currently watching. He also thought he heard 4Kids Eggman in there, thinking that he just did permanent damage to his career just for mentioning that. note 
    • Kiara the Brave has some gems:
      • Him pointing out that the people in Kiara's kingdom are all modernly clothed.
      • "And the Wizard has a laptop, because... don't all wizards have laptops?"
      • Him saying that the movie ripping off Jesus may allow them more "brand recognition".
    • He describes "Leo Lion: King of the Jungle" as the creators doing something resembling a cartoon and calling it a day.

    • The Honorable Mentions give us: "Braver, they took Brave and they added an 'R'! Brilliant! Give that man a million dollars!" and him getting to Frozen Land and immediately saying that they couldn't get away with that... until saying that they didn't get away with that, as he shows an article about Disney suing the company who made the film.
  • In "Worst Animated Sequels", there is him imitating the narrator of The Land Before Time 13: The Wisdom of Friends, regretting ever taking the job since the kids watching the movie are more likely to fiddle with their iPads instead of paying attention.
    • There is also the complaint that Littlefoot sounds nothing like his original actor, thinking that the new voice actor is just "some 10 year-old kid they paid with bubble gum".
    • Shrek 4-D has this: "And Donkey never shuts up!" It's the delivery of the line that really sells it.
      • The Swan Princess Christmas has him calling out Rothbart for deciding to use his magic to make the "Christmas Spirit" disappear, instead of doing something legitimately threatening.
    • Then there is also him calling out that Derek is brought back to life by Odette's singing: "F-- Movie! See me after class!"
    • Happily N'ever After 2, literally everything he says about the Queen: note .
