You won't regret watching this.

This is basically the true definition of family entertainment. Positive messages, great comedic humor, great role models, weird and creative moments, and great animation. DanTDM clearly knew the audience he was going after with this. Watch it for free while you can (yes, all episodes are free for a limited time). You won't regret it.

DanTDM The Best YouTuber

This is from his YouTube red. I’ve never seen this. It’s about Dan and his animated friends like Craig the mailman and Dr. Trayaurus. I probably would recommend this to a 12 year old boy or girl would likes to read comic books like me. Even though I’m a 22 year old I might do this. Probably not.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

This creative, family-friendly show offers fans of DanTDM a chance to watch him interact with the entire cast of characters he created for his YouTube videos. It also gives folks a chance to see bits of his live show, throughout which animated characters appear as sentient beings, and video games are played.

It's geared toward tweens and Minecraft superfans, but adults may chuckle at some of the quick-witted humor. Chances are that the over 14 million subscribers to his channel will be drawn to it automatically, but no doubt DanTDM Creates a Big Scene will attract some new fans.
