Walulis is a semi-continuation of Walulis Sieht Fern, now on YouTube, produced by funk, a service provided by both ARD and ZDF and their affiliates in an effort to support content where the öffentlich-rechtlichen Sender note did not have any before.
It is closer in style and humor to american comedy shows, such as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, than Walulis Sieht Fern was (which was inspired by Charlie Brookers Screenwipe), but still focuses on media and analysis. The biggest difference might be the inclusion of media apart from television, such as Video Games or YouTube. This is deliberate, as the concept of the show was divised in cooperation with the viewers, who recommended these shows as examples of what they would like to see.
It is currently ongoing and new episodes are released every Monday and Thursday on both YouTube and the official funk website.
Die Folgenden Tropes werden euch von der Glocke präsentiert:

- Color Contrast: Yellow and Black
- Cute Kitten: The Safari Kitten
- Darker and Edgier: Not by a lot, mostly using more Black Comedy than Walulis Sieht Fern
- Death Is Cheap: Characters are killed in The Stinger and return without any lasting consequences
- Deconstructor Fleet
- Deliberately Monochrome: Whenever something is filmed that doesn't involve Phillipp behind the desk
- Demoted to Extra: Tobi, when compared to the amount of roles he played on Walulis Sieht Fern. This was lampshaded during a community segment.YouTube comment: I've forgotten what Tobi looks like!Phillipp: Then get that pause button ready, because this is what he looks like! (holds up a framed picture of Tobi for less than a second)
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Used to explain how certain YouTubers can create content that falls within the YouTube age restrictions
- Early Installment Weirdness: Earlier episodes are less refined than the later ones - also no Safari Kitten
- Edutainment Show: A comedy show that analyses techniques employed in different media genres
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Die Glocke
- Everything's Deader with Zombies: Thoroughly deconstructed
- Everything's Better with Spinning: Downplayed, but the Walulis logo does spin during the intro
- Expy: The Bum That Does Their Finances started off with noticeable similarities to Chester A. Bum but now seems to have turned out as a immortal Eldritch Abomination
