"Greetings! I am The Cartoon Hero, because with great nostalgia comes great responsibility."

Eli Stone is a reviewer who was a member of now-defunct site Reviewers Unknown, and is a member of Space Monkey Mafia Studios and The Rosen Hacker's website. Although he is one of many reviewers who follows the tradition set by Doug Walker, he notably also has shades of Atop the Fourth Wall and claims that one of his biggest inspirations is Chad "CR" Rocco of Familiar Faces while the self depreciating humor seems to share some shades with that of LittleKuriboh. Eli is aware of the fact that he is not the first to do this, and lately references this wiki a lot. As his name suggests, his character is a bitter superhero with the power to command cartoon clichés – which sometimes feel more like tropes—who specializes in animation criticism.


Notably, the show's quality gets increasingly better as time passes. The storyline becomes deeper, the camera quality gets better, and (perhaps not coincidentally) he references TV Tropes more and more. Either way, you can find him on his blog here. He also has a Dailymotion account here, where most of his videos can now be found, though he had to upload a few to Google Drive. He had a account, but it got deleted during one of Blip's purges. He was also on Reviewers Unknown, but that site closed down October 18, 2014.

Eli has also started his own retrospective project on the Ace Attorney series. Much like Linkara's History of Power Rangers videos, he has stated that each game will have three videos to cover it – two to go over what happens in all four-five cases in said game, and one to go over characters and general thoughts on the game in question. However, also like that series, there will be no set schedule. As of July 2019, the series is complete at 350 episodes, though he is currently working on a slew of Patreon requests and has started a sort-of podcast series.
