"Hey Boyyos and Girlos!"
You tell Arthur Read that he'll never eat lunch in this town again!

Schaffrillas Productions is a YouTube Pooper who started making poops around 2015. His poops are notable for their ridiculous amount of references. On the side, he also makes AMVs, live action re-enactments of SpongeBob SquarePants episodes and review/analysis videos.

In August 2019, with increased attention towards his reviews and analysis videos, he decided to start a new channel called "Schaff Classic" which will be home to all of his YTP's and shitposts from here on out. His older ones will still remain on the old channel, though many are unlisted.


Funding for Schaffrillas has been provided by these tropes:

  • Aborted Arc: "Scrooge McDank Plots to Assassinate Mark Zuckerbeak" revealed that one shark was rescued from the great shark massacre by Glamgold, and it appeared to be leading into a bigger plan involving said shark. And then Oscar proceeds to have Glamgold framed for the theft of Clamu's pearl in "Spingebill Awakens a Very Steamed Clam", which results in the duck's crucifixion. Oscar then goes on to blow up Glomgold's remaining shark, effectively killing off any storyline that might have been built up.
  • Adaptational Alternate Ending: Generally, whatever source he's pooping has a chance of ending rather... differently from how it originally did:
    • "Sharp Talk" goes through the events of Shark Tale as they happened in the movie (albeit with many more references to other shows), only to suddenly change when Oscar, Lenny and Sykes get to Don Lino's meeting place. In this version, Oscar sets his plan into motion, revealing to Lino that he's had Lenny order a giant ship to aim guns at all the sharks in the world. When Lino begs him not to, Oscar refuses and blows them all up aside from Lenny and Lino. Lino ends up trapped and Forced to Watch Oscar gloat about being a real Sharkslayer, and Oscar proceeds to leave the two sharks to die in his trap. Having killed every shark on Earth, Oscar then becomes governor, solidifying his Face–Heel Turn into a Villain Protagonist.

    • "Spingebill Awakens a Very Steamed Clam" follows the same events of the episode with Spongebob feeling guilty about upsetting Clamu followed by Patrick taking the blame for his crime. Then things take a drastic change when the zookeeper reveals Flintheart Glomgold as the thief who stole Clamu's pearl. Then things get worse for him as Oscar and Skyes use false evidence to successfully convince the angry mob to kill the billionaire duck via crucifixion. And to top it all off, Oscar kills off the remaining shark that Glomgold was hiding thus rendering all sharks on Earth as extinct.
    • "The Incrediboiiiis" follows the exact events of The Incredibles with the Incredible family facing off against Syndrome and his Omnidroid. The twist? It turns out that Syndrome was actually a robotic decoy created by Tamatoa, who was initially hired by Violet to babysit Jack-Jack, as a means of distracting the supers while he stole away their super powered baby. He even manages to kill the Incredibles via nuclear bomb. The final scene reveals that he intends to use Jack-Jack as a way to depose of Oscar and take over as the new governor of the ocean.
    • "SpingeBill Jams Some Juicy Jellies" features an identical plotline to "Jellyfish Hunter" with Spongebob rounding up tons of jellyfish for the Krusty Krab only to learn of their horrid mistreatment in a jelly production factory. Only this time, we learn that Sykes is the one behind their abuse. Before Spongebob can bash the puffer with a monkey wrench, a laser beam from space zaps him leaving behind an agonizing explosion. This would be a Downer Ending if it wasn't for The Stinger revealing that the sponge will return in Sharp Talk 2.
  • Antidisestablishmentarianism: Is the name of one of the fake patrons credited at the end of Schaff's 2021 April Fool's video.
  • April Fools:
  • Author Appeal:
    • References to musical theater tend to pop up a lot in his poops.
    • If it wasn't obvious by his thumbnail, he's a pretty huge fan of Moana, especially Tamatoa. He's even ranked above "super classic Disney villains" like Scar and Judge Frollo.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In his analysis of Ratatoing, Schaffrillas notes that the rival rats deciding to go out and steal food for their restaurant after their goofing around gets the building laced with mouse traps is not a bright decision, and he nearly makes one of his recurring jokes by saying it was their mis...calculation, instead of "mistake" as the line in Big Hero 6 goes.
  • Berserk Button: Outside of his YouTube Poops, Schaf's biggest one is probably the Dance Party Ending due to his massive rant at the end of the Shark Tale review.
  • Big Bad: With the Story Arc that has been built up, Oscar has officially become the main villain of the poops.
  • Brick Joke: When he goes over Penguins of Madagascar while ranking every Dreamworks movie, he says that he won't talk about The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper until he reaches the number where that short would rank if it counted as a movie. He doesn't get to it until the very end of the video; it would rank at number one.
  • Christmas Episode:
  • Continuity Nod: When Glomgold is discussing his plan to assassinate Mark Beaks with Scrooge in "Scrooge McDank Plots to Assassinate Mark Zuckerbeak", he mentions one part of the plan as getting Beaks eaten by sharks. Scrooge points out that all the sharks were killed in "Sharp Talk", to which Glomgold replies, "Not all of them." It's then revealed he managed to save several of them from being blown up.
  • Close on Title: "Sharp Talk" does this.
  • Counting to Potato: He has 3 exhibits demonstrating why Over the Hedge is a sequel to Wallace And Gromit Curse Of The Were Rabbit. These are labeled as exhibits A, 2, and Gamma.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Lord Farquaad, who in "Lord Fafquadd Declares His Love for Shrek" is shown ordering his guards to kill Princess Fiona, since he wants Shrek to be his queen and would prefer not to risk anyone stealing him away.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: In his Shark Tale review, he says that it isn't the worst Will Smith movie with questionable racial implications. Considering that that other film is Bright, that's not really saying much.
  • Death by Adaptation: Heat Miser ends up killed by Oscar in "Snow Miser Goes Down to South Park", who then takes over as the new Heat Miser and makes it snow in South Park.
  • Disney Villain Death: Palpatine meets his end when Darth Vader throws him down a giant hole at the bottom of the sea, angry about Palpatine telling him to "take it easy" after Vader realizes he killed Padme.
  • "Eureka!" Moment: Schaffrillas himself has one in his ranking of every Dreamworks movie when he realizes that he doesn't actually need to talk about Trolls: World Tour because it's not a theatrical release.note 
  • Every Episode Ending: What poop of his doesn't end with "Back in the 90's"?
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • As much as he hates Mako, even he felt bad about all the shit Korra inflicts on him in The Legend of Korra's second season.
    • As much as he hates Shrek the Third, even he think's that it's ending is more realistic than Shark Tale's.
  • Evil vs. Evil: "The Incrediboiiiis" ends with the reveal that Tamatoa is planning to depose Oscar and take his place as ruler of the ocean.
  • Five-Second Foreshadowing: His "best of" lists play a very brief sound clip moments before he talks about each movie, which has some tangential relation to the movie in question, usually consisting of an Actor Allusion, a snippet of Suspiciously Apropos Music, or just an Incredibly Lame Pun.
  • Foe Yay: Invoked in "Lord Fafquadd Declares His Love for Shrek", in which Lord Farquaad falls in love with Shrek himself. When he demands a kiss in exchange for giving Shrek his swamp back, Shrek actually obliges, much to the shock of the citizens of Duloc. Twice. It then continues in "Sincerely, Shrek", where Shrek plays the role of Evan and Farquaad plays Connor, resulting in a lot of Ho Yay that's fueled by Donkey, who plays Jared.
  • Franchise Original Sin: invoked Discussed in "Why Shrek is an Enduring Classic". The runaway success of the original Shrek not only led to many other fairy tale spoof movies, but also influenced a slew of other animated films with its cast of famous celebrities, crude humor, and pop culture references. This included many future Dreamworks movies, to the point that many said the studio used the movie as a template. Shark Tale followed the "Shrek formula", but failed to recapture its success. Shrek used these elements to further its intent of being a Deconstructive Parody of Disney Renaissance movies with a strong emotional center that gave happy endings to characters traditionally denied them. In Shark Tale, the crude humor was there to be crude, the pop culture references went as by-the-numbers as characters quoting lines from other movies at random, the movie leaned into its celebrity casting too hard to the point of trying to trying to make the fish characters resemble their actors — which, since these were fish, resulted in downright hideous designs — and the story it wants to tell is a vapid, meaningless, poorly-done mashup of a mob movie, a "meaninglessness of fame" story, and an attempt to tackle LGBT issues allegorically. Schaffrillas goes so far as to say Dreamworks' penchant and reputation for crude humor in particular is holding it back, since not only does it make its bad movies even worse, it also weighs down some of its good movies with jokes that just don't gel with the tone.
  • Guilt by Association: While he admits that Monsters vs. Aliens wasn't as bad as he remembered, he still hates its character designs, mainly because its similarities to Megamind caused the latter film to under perform at the box office.
    Schaffrillas: Thanks for that, Dicks.
  • I Have the High Ground: At one point in "Revenge of the Senate", Obi-Wan manages to get the high ground in his battle with Anakin, just like the original movie. This time however, Anakin doesn't attempt to jump over him, and the fight ends in a draw.
  • I Know You Know I Know: Oscar has a moment early on in "Sharp Talk" during his dream.
    Oscar: You might think you know, but you might think you know, but you might know I think I know you know-
    SpongeBob: What? What do I know?
    Oscar: No idea.
  • Insistent Terminology: The Nostalgia Critic insists that Tamatoa is a giant turtle, to the point where he screams at Tamatoa to shut up when he tries to tell him he's actually a crab.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: A variation: Schaffrillas occasionally hosts YTP collabs, allowing for a crossover between several different YouTube Poopers, who all take the chance to show off their different editing styles.
  • Musical Episode:
    • The Schwiftening is what Schaffrillas considers to be his musically-oriented poop, and has so many songs that he put a note in the comments to show where each one was.
    • Ditto for "Sharp Talk".
  • Oh, Crap!: Oscar has this reaction in "Sharp Talk" when the seahorse he bet on trips before the finish line.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Puss in Boots wins Farquaad Idol, but is then immediately arrested because the song he performed had him blatantly admit to evading his taxes.
  • Rapid-Fire "No!": Upon being greeted with the sight of Wild Wild West, Oscar lets out a string of "nopes" as he's swimming away.
  • Reference Overdosed: You can't go five seconds without being bombarded with some kind of reference.
  • Running Gag:
  • invokedSeasonal Rot: His video "How Voltron: Legendary Defender Crashed and Burned" is about Voltron's last two seasons.
  • Serial Escalation: In case of the lengthy YTP collabs he hosted. The Arthur YTP takes nearly 14 minutes, the Chowder and Shiny YTP collabs both take just over 20 minutes, the Robot Chicken YTP collab takes approximately 35 minutes, and the Super Smash Bros. YTP collab triumphs over previous YTP collabs, with a whooping 1 hour and 4 minutes.
  • Series Mascot: The mascot of the channel tends to vary between Tamatoa (pictured above) and Aardvark!Matt Damon.
  • invokedSequelitis: He believes that the sequels from Disney and Pixar (barring the Toy Story sequels) generally play this straight, while the sequels from Dreamworks Animation generally avert this (barring Shrek the Third and Trolls: World Tour).
  • Shared Universe: If the call backs to Sharp Talk in Scrooge McDank Plots to Assassinate Mark Zuckerbeak is of any indication (not to mention the cliffhanger ending in which Oscar and Sykes appear, with the former finding out that there were more sharks after having killed all of them in the previous poop), then Schaffrillas seems to be on the way to making one of these.
  • invokedSo Okay, It's Average: Schaff has described films like Big Hero 6, Incredibles 2, Bohemian Rhapsody, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Captain Marvel (2019), Aladdin (2019), Frozen II, and Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) a movie. Though his feelings towards RBTI have since soured, and his feelings towards Incredibles 2 have slightly improved.
  • Spanner in the Works: At The Stinger of "The Incrediboiiiis", Scuttle is setting up to be this after he learns of Tamatoa's plan to overthrow Oscar.
  • Special Edition Title: Will occasionally modify the Aardvark Matt Damon in his watermark to fit whatever show/movie he's pooping. For instance, the icon will be wearing a Chowder hat for the Chowder collab, or painted green with ogre ears for the Shrekoning collab entry.
  • Take That!:
    • Slowen Sells His Soul for Some Reese's Puffs delivers one to Total Drama All-Stars, which is widely considered to be the worst season of the show.
    • In the poop "Spingebill Awakens a Very Steamed Clam", to prove that Glomgold was the one who upset Clamu, the zookeeper accidentally pulls out a copy of Metal Gear Survive from his pocket. The crowd reacts in total disgust.
    • In "YTP: Chowder's Knishmas Katastrophe", Chowder asks Mung Daal why a holiday like Knishmas only exists to make people feel like complete garbage. As he says this, a card of Valentine's Day appears onscreen.
      • In the same poop, Mung Daal states his one of his two regrets is being co-director in Shark Tale. This causes Shnitzel to scream in terror.
    • In his video on Over the Hedge, after praising a running gag in the film Schaffrillas gets a "phone call" telling him that all comedy is based on misery, which leads him to go on a small rant that leads to an explosion taken from The Nostalgia Critic's intro. This is a jab at Doug Walker's infamous "all comedy is misery" philosophy.
      • He does it again later in the video while praising the vocal talent in the movie. In Doug's review, he said that some of the Actor Allusion jokes don't work because you can't see the actors; just the characters that they're playing.
        Schaff: If you're concerned that the jokes don't work, because you're only hearing the actors and not seeing them, maybe that's a sign that you need to shut up and listen.
    • Similarly, in "Every Disney Renaissance Movie Ranked", Schafrillas throws shade at Doug Walker's Disneycember review of Hercules by breaking down the aspects of the movie Doug Walker didn't like or understand and explaining why they work.
    • While he does rate this as the 22nd best DreamWorks movie out of 38 (which at this point was in the part of the list where the films were 6/10 above average rating), the way he introduces Abominable is a sound clip of the Abominable Snowman talking to Mike Wazowski that without context sounds like the two of them just came out of the theater after watching it.
      Abominable Snowman: Abominable, heheh. Can you believe that?
    • Also during his DreamWorks ranking, he compares the ending of Shark Tale to a Barney & Friends episode. Or the ending to Steven Universe's fifth season.
    • His Shark Tale review has one where during his comparison of Shark Tale's plot, he describes Oscar standing on Franky's corpse and claiming he killed it to Ernie and Bernie as "If in Hercules, Hercules didn't actually kill the Hydra in front of hundreds of people, he just stood on its corpse with no witnesses except for two stupid people who saw it after the fact." Said stupid people are two images of Ansem.
    • His Pixar ranking video has several directed at Cars 2. He states that it's worse than both Turbo and Shrek the Third, the two lowest ranked films from his Dreamworks video. He then stated that he'd rather watch The Rise of Skywalker, a film which he gave a 2/10. Then, to add the coup-de-gra, he stated that it, Brave, and The Good Dinosaur were all worse than Ralph Breaks the Internet, a film that he made a Cinematic Disaster video on.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: In-Universe. In his Ranking of the 2000s Disney Movies video, he states that he doesn't like Ray from The Princess and the Frog and said that he thought Dr. Facilier stepping on him was funny.
  • The Scottish Trope:
    • He deliberately tries to avoid talking about Cars 2 as much as possible and only includes it as visual representations rather than talking about it. Ultimately subverted in "Why Cars is a Conceptually Bad Franchise," and much later, his Pixar ranking.
    • He later does the same thing to Shrek the Third, constantly referring to the series as a trilogy rather than as a tetrarchy. When he does his Dreamworks ranking, he expresses relief that he never has to talk about it again and go back to pretending it doesn't exist and when he does his review of the original Shrek, he refers to it as a bad fanfic.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character:
  • Wham Shot:
    • Oscar and Sykes' cameo at the very end of "Scrooge McDank Plots to Assassinate Mark Zuckerbeak".
    • In "The Incrediboiiiis", Tamatoa crushes a picture of Oscar while singing about his goal of conquering the ocean.
