Hi, this is Mike Mozart, back again with the coolest tropes of yesterday and today!

Jeepers Media is the brainchild of Mike Mozart, a toy product designer and book illustrator. Simply put, there are a myriad of horrible candies and toys out there...and he owns one or more of every single one of them. He plans to make a toy museum someday with the best and worst toys the world has to offer. Has to be seen to be believed. He also has another channel which typically has reviews of good toys.

Mike looks like Al from Toy Story 2, which he has acknowledged.

In 2011, Mike made several videos dealing with SOPA, ACTA, PIPA, as well as a controversial Megaupload-centered video. He returned to his toy reviews in 2012 but vanished from YouTube in 2013. He finally returned in 2015, promising to produce far more toy reviews. As of March 2016, he has yet to upload any of said reviews, but he is active on Twitter. On the 16th of December 2018, he returned with a livestream on Youtube showcasing a new toy, as well as revisiting some classics shown off in earlier videos.


Mike is also an avid graffiti artist, whose works look like a piece of an infringed-upon cartoon character, but are really part of a totally different piece of original artwork.

This YouTube channel gives examples of:

  • A Date with Rosie Palms:
  • Affectionate Parody: Mike made one of I'm a Marvel... And I'm a DC, pitting a badass Dark Knight action figure against a Badass Decayed Spider-Man toy for six-year olds.
  • Berserk Button: Mike really hates Viacom, and uploaded a series of videos criticizing their hypocrisy in getting YouTube to ban contributors who use copyrighted material while they themselves uploaded clips from Viacom-owned shows designed to look like illegally-uploaded materials as a sort of viral marketing.
    • In one video, Mike points out that Viacom has apparently been stealing YouTube videos, reposting them on a Viacom-owned site (, changing the titles to deny the original posters credit, and putting ads before the videos in order to make money. He was not amused.
    • Advertisement:
    • He did another video report about CNET (which has been owned by Viacom since 2008) being guilty of promoting and popularizing filesharing software such as Limewire, Grokster, and Kazaa which feature infringed-upon material owned by Viacom. The two were mainly responsible for Limewire's eventual demise in late 2010.
  • Camera Screw: A rare non-videogame example. Before Youtube removed them entirely, episodes of Fail Toys were plastered with annotations of some sort (usually containing obligatory Please Subscribe to Our Channel messages or side notes). Most of these annotations were kept inside a back border, but when there wasn't a border (in the case of the newer episodes), it could obstruct the sides of the video.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "I mean, really..."
    • "I am not making this up."
    • "What were they thinking?"
    • "The picture... (shows the box/packaging/promotional photo of the product) ...the reality!" (shows the real thing, often looking nowhere near as good)
    • "Is this win or fail?"
    • "Hi! This is Mike Mozart (from JeepersMedia [on YouTube]) bringing you the coolest products from yesterday and today!"
    • "...[Please] Put that in the comments section."
    • "If you're Amish, you might not want to watch this video, because I'm about to show off these toys exactly as they were designed...[Shows off a potentially inappropriate toy]...for children?!"
  • Censored for Comedy: The 100th Video Milestone Celebration concerns about the show's potential offensiveness by bleeping a manner that makes the dialogue sound naughtier than before. (eg, "What happened after Ken kissed Barbie? Her cheeks got all Rosie!)
  • Creepy Doll: A few real-life examples have been showcased:
    • Baby Secret, a creepy whispering doll that says some unsettling phrases.
    • Baby Say And See, Baby Secret's equally-evil twin.
    • Baby Laugh-A-Lot, a doll whose actual laugh sounds like an evil old smoker, rather than a friendly giggle, and a clown doll which was very similar.
    • Baby Tatters, A homeless rag doll with some very depressing and unnerving phrases.
    • Little Baby Lost, an "abandoned baby" doll with a face-changing gimmick operated by a lever, which has the unintentional effect of creating a multi-faced doll mid-transition.
  • Darker and Edgier: Not so much darker (although more recent videos have seen a decrease in suitable lighting), but the few toy review videos that Mike has done since his Channel Decay / Halfway Plot Switch seems he almost goes out of his way to cram as many dirty jokes into the review as possible, and his reviews tended to be (for the most part) clean enough.
  • Drop-In Character: In the few more recent toy reviews, Mike has been accompanied by extra people who throw in little random acts and sketches in the review.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Mike's earliest reviews were a lot more mellow compared to his hyperactive style later on.
  • Epic Fail: The website would not exist if not for this.
  • Erotic Eating: The "Kiss Pops" lips lollipops. The tongue is the candy. You suck on the tongue. Also comes in animal. And Jar Jar Binks.
  • Even The Rats Won't Touch It: In his review of the Hulkster Cheeseburger, he sets the burger down for Cocoa Puff, along with an ordinary McDonalds cheeseburger. Cocoa Puff won't touch the Hulkster burger, and Mike (accurately) points out that Labs will usually eat anything.
  • Fun with Subtitles: YouTube annotations.
  • Get a Room!: In the Jar Jar Binks Lollipop episode, Mike insists two Jar Jar pops do this when one of them (which is tongueless) starts to erotically munch the other's tongue.
    Mike: "Um, shouldn't you guys get a room... or a galaxy far far away?"
  • Halfway Plot Switch: As noted above, by December 2011, Mike had pretty much stopped doing toy reviews, and instead went very political, ranting against various different corporations and organizations, and even participating in an Occupy Wall Street protest. Since then, any toy reviews he does have been few and far between.
  • Hurricane of Puns
    Mike: (holding a Dora the Explorer Aquapet) What do you play with this, hide and go seek? Um, I bet it'll be on your Mommy's nightstand.
    • His beer review preview. The amount of puns you can get from the names of beer alone. . . .
  • Keet: Mike, obviously.
  • Last of His Kind: Downplayed with a quote in one of his recent livestreams. His famed Kaba Kick Russian Roulette toy gun for kids isn't the only one in existence. He has the only mint-in-the-box iteration in known existence, with all of the packaging, fake bullets, and point chips still intact.
  • Later-Installment Weirdness: Specifically, Mike Mozart's videos. Starting around 2011, Mike had pretty much stopped doing toy reviews, and instead made increasingly more rant videos, usually against bigger media corporations like Viacom, but he also got very political as well. This continued for about a year, then he began doing new toy review videos, which contained a lot more adult jokes and wordplay than older reviews, in addition to other Jeepers Media folk joining in on the reviews as well. It's also clear that by this point, Mike's mindset went from Doing It for the Art to Money, Dear Boy.
  • Mondegreen Gag: A lot of the toys featuring voice clips are unintelligible to the point where they sound like they're saying something obscene.
  • Motor Mouth: You'd think Mike gets out at least seven sentences per breath, although he has slowed down since.
  • Network Decay: Somewhat. Towards the end of December 2011 and up to the first half of 2012, Michael Mozart has started making videos that rant about SOPA, PIPA, ACTA (which were actually important issues and became highly controversial in late 2011/early 2012), and perhaps most famously, one centered around whether or not Megaupload's users will be arrested. He has also gone on to do beer reviews and has said that he is planning tons of more toy reviews.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business:
    • In his review of a Hannah Montana doll, he refused to give it a funny review, considering it one of the most inappropriate toys he'd ever seen, since the button for voice activation is in her crotch.
    • One video was a warning about a scam stealing YouTube accounts.
  • Please Subscribe to Our Channel: "Click on that button that says "Subscribe", you'll be glad you did!" Nearly every video contains this message in some way, including the annotations!
  • Precious Puppies: Mike's black lab, Cocoa Puff (who is actually an adult, but still precious!), and her equally-precious sister Spunky.
  • Real Life: All of the toys, candies, candles, etc. are real. 100%. Real.
  • Serious Business: Played with. Mike's a professional toy designer and collector, so he has fun mocking these things.
  • Shoddy Knockoff Product: The subject of several videos, with one of them featuring Cars knockoffs and another featuring Winnie the Pooh knockoffs. Mike himself explicitly states in video, text, and annotations that he does not sell or give away these due to safety concerns.
  • Take That!:

  • Toilet Humor: "FAIL TOYS Knock-Off POOH Funny Video Toy Review" has a field day with this thanks to Fun with Subtitles.
    "The streets of NYC were COVERED in POOH! Piles of POOH! (knockoffs)"
  • Unfortunate Names: Mike demonstrates this when he reviews a knockoff Winnie the Pooh toy...named "Gout".
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Mike suffers from a HORRIBLE case of this, as he's made AT LEAST 20 promises to review things or make videos that he's never followed through on.
    • His worst case would be the "Funny Videos: , KNOCKOFF Fail Toys" video. He demonstrates a plethora of knock off products with the promise that he would review them all eventually. In the end, only three of the products were given their own reviews- with only one of them (the knock-off iPods) being a knockoff.
