―Baby Lamb Creations
Simon A. (born: November 29, 2002YouTube channel best known for producing a wide variety of videos, such as shitposts, memes, animated videos, nostalgia-oriented videos, musical mashups, Minecraft: PE videos, "Don't Let Your Kids Watch It", "Baby Lamb & Friends", and all others. Created by Simon A., his goal is to post random content of many different kinds that people will enjoy.), better known online as Baby Lamb Creations (and occasionally misnamed Baby Lamb Productions) is an American
His channel officially started on March 21, 2016 and his first video was uploaded on March 22, 2016. At first his subscriber rate was really slow, initially receiving a mere 60 subscribers in just a span of 2 months. But eventually, it skyrocketed to 10,000 subscribers in less than a year and soon he has gained over 50,000 subscribers. His target demographic is people of all ages, in which he usually refers to his fans as "The Lamb Fam." Baby Lamb Creations has been involved in over 400 videos from various YouTubers, either in meme compilations, livestreams, fan-made videos, or different web series that Simon A. plays a role in.
Behind the Creator
Simon A. was born on Black Friday on November 29, 2002. He wanted to become a YouTuber ever since he was a very little child. Throughout his life, he watched YouTube videos of all different kinds (memes, songs, cartoons, YouTube Poops, etc), which greatly inspired him to become a YouTuber. He originally used a very old YouTube account called "emaforluv" but all he did was post comments on it and no videos. When his dad gave him a video camera, he began recording videos of his stuffed animals, which eventually spawned into Baby Lamb Creations official web series under the title "Baby Lamb And Friends." The name Baby Lamb Creations was named after an old stuffed lamb that Simon had when he was a child, but unfortunately lost in a movie theater around May of 2012. It was originally going to be called Random Video Productions, but Simon eventually decided to name his channel after his lost childhood plaything.
When his channel was created, however, it was first called "SRA Baby Lamb Creations" (SRA being his initials), but he felt like it was too long and not catchy, so he shortened it to simply Baby Lamb Creations which stuck to this very day. While it was evident that adding the word "BABY" in his channel's name would confuse people into thinking that his channel mainly posts content for little kids (when in actuality he also posts memes and videos that occasionally have language that isn't for youngsters to hear) it was already too late for him to change it, but he didn't care. Nowadays, the word "BABY" was kept in his name not only to be ironic, but also to forever remember the days of his childhood. His profile pic, on the other hand, was first a picture of a drawing of Baby Lamb (used in the first 3 seasons of Baby Lamb & Friends) and his stuffed childhood cow that he named "Cow". Around mid-2017, his pic changed into a drawing of Baby Lamb, and in late-2018, his profile pic got redesigned to a more cartoonish-looking version of Baby Lamb. Around special days like Christmas and Halloween, he edits his profile pic to make it more seasonal.
On the day of February 13, 2019, Simon got into an accident in which his leg was terribly broken, forcing him to undergo a major surgery the day after on Valentine's Day in which he stayed in the hospital for a mere 3 days. During the time he was recovering, he continued to finish animating his 50,000 subscribers animated special which became the most liked animated video he has ever made. His recovery lasted for over half a year but Simon A. has made a full recover and is doing much better than before.
Simon A. is self-taught in a lot of the stuff he does on his channel, which includes drawing, animating, playing the piano, and even editing over 1,000 of his videos. He enjoys posting drawings, making animated videos, doing piano covers of various songs that he enjoys, and also enjoys finding new ways to edit stuff for his content.
History of the Channel
When Simon first started his YouTube channel on March of 2016, it mostly consisted of clips from childhood shows that he watched (such as Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, and Mickey Mouse) as well as keyboard covers of different songs, recreations of the Magical Events from Teletubbies in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and early episodes of "Baby Lamb & Friends". Back then, he recorded his videos with an iPad, edited them with the iMovie app, and even used his iPad to record the screens of other devices, sound and all. But eventually around the beginning of 2017, he switched to digital recording, downloaded iMovie on his PC, and used it to edit all of his videos to this very day. His new form of video-editing skills gave him the unique advantage of trying out different kinds of videos such as "Random Math", "Don't Let Your Kids Watch It", "Epic Ear Rape", and his beloved "Musical Mashups". He continues to use his iPad to record videos where he appears in person such as special announcements, sub specials, Minecraft videos, remakes of "The Adventures of Cliff Hanger", and episodes of "Baby Lamb & Friends."
Occasionally during the holiday season or special days, Baby Lamb Creations would often post compilations of all of Simon's favorite childhood shows that have specials surrounding a certain holiday, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentine's Day, etc. Additionally, whenever he reaches a certain milestone, usually from the first 10,000 subscribers to another, he usually makes a special subscriber video to celebrate his milestone and to thank his beloved fans for helping him reach this far.
Earlier in 2018, however, he has been overwhelmed by an annoying uproar of hate videos from little kids who watch his channel, which has occured for approximately 7 months throughout 2018. It started on February 20, 2018 when a user named Proto (using the Protegent meme as his persona) posted numerous hate videos of Baby Lamb Creations hating against him. At first Proto said he was going to stop but then he broke his promise and continued to post hate videos against Simon, some of them including death threats. For months, Simon A. and the entire Lamb Fam tought against Proto (and another user who sided with Proto named Arnold the Killa Whale), but eventually Simon managed to get all the hate videos and Proto's channel taken down. Simon himself likes to refer to that experience as "The Great User War".
When Simon left YouTube temporarily to go on vacation during the summer of 2018, he posted an announcement saying that he's gonna be taking a break from YouTube but posted some pre-made videos as birthday gifts for some of his friends who have birthdays during the time he was on vacation. His fans were patient and when he returned, he surprised everyone with a very special animated video to celebrate his return which was also BLC's first ever full-length animated video! The video got over 90 likes, 1,400 views, and Simon himself declared it was one of his most favorite videos ever made. It was then that Baby Lamb Creations got into producing animated videos, which got a lot of attention from his fellow fans. One of Simon's personal favorite animated videos was a special animated video posted on Christmas Eve, which included the voices of a lot of his YouTube friends and fans singing the Disney Christmas song, "The Best Christmas of All".
The day right after Simon's 16th Birthday, on November 30, 2018, Baby Lamb Creations received its first ever copyright strike from Bagdasarian Productions who requested YouTube to take down his upload of the song "My Mother" from the 1987 movie "The Chipmunk Adventures" which was posted on May 14, 2017. Ever since that incident, BLC has been planning to make more original content and remove any uploads of scenes from shows or movies to prevent any further copyright strikes. As of February 28, 2019, the channel no longer has any copyright strikes and Simon is planning on posting more original content of his in the near future. Additionally, Baby Lamb Creations has an alternate channel made around the end of 2017 in the event where something might happen to the original channel, and Simon posted an announcement about it in mid-2018. It gained over 100 subscribers that very day and currently it has over 330 subscribers, very little compared to his main channel but it's made up of people who subscribed to the original channel. Simon has not posted anything in his alternate channel until June 17, 2019 when he uploaded a video combining his own series "Baby Lamb & Friends" and Xplodin Apple's series "Angry Birds Craptastic Adventures", parodying a PBS Kids block Simon saw as a kid.
On February 18, 2019, Baby Lamb Creations celebrated reaching 50,000 subscribers with an animated special featuring his own animated characters singing the beloved SpongeBob song "Sweet Victory", which also paid tribute to the show's deceased creator, Stephen Hillenburg. It was also made in response to the controversy surrounding NFL and the Halftime Show that left millions of fans disappointed. The video has gained over 150 likes, making it the most liked animated video BLC has uploaded.
On April 1, 2019, Baby Lamb Creations pulled a massive prank on his viewers where he pretended his channel was hacked by someone else by privating all his public videos, removing his layout, and changing his profile picture and banner. In addition, he posted a video at midnight on April Fools Day that made it seem like someone else was controlling his channel and messing with it. Several hours later he revealed the prank to his fans, which generated mixed reactions. During the time this prank was intact, BLC lost about 30 subscribers. He claimed, however, that the prank was worth it but he'll never pull anything like that again. Luckily, after he restored everything back the way it was before, his channel continue to run smoothly and he regained the subs and views that he lost.
On May 4, 2019, Simon made an announcement on YouTube that Baby Lamb & Friends: The Movie (a film adaptation based on his web series) is in development. After the release of the Season 4 episode of Baby Lamb & Friends, "A Tale of Two Cows", he announced it would be the last episode made before production on the film officially starts. On July 30, 2019, Baby Lamb Creations went on a long hiatus because Simon wanted to continue production on his film "Baby Lamb & Friends: The Movie". He didn't post a video until September 7, 2019 and currently only uploads videos every so often instead of daily on account of his personal life and finishing up senior year of high school. Production on Baby Lamb & Friends: The Movie ran from June to October, and it made its auspicious debut on November 9, 2019. It gained a positive reception from dozens of fans the day of release, and Simon A. considers Baby Lamb & Friends: The Movie to be his channel's "magnum opus".
On December 24, 2019, Simon A. uploaded a Christmas video called "A Baby Lamb Musical Christmas Collection", compiling a lot of musical holiday posted on Baby Lamb Creations over the years while Simon transitions from one song to the other. It ended with a huge cover of the song "Keep Christmas With You" from Sesame Street, sung by various fans while Simon himself arranged the music on the piano. It is one of Simon's favorite collaborative videos to have made.
Throughout early 2020, however, Baby Lamb Creations appeared to be declining in attention as not a lot of videos get over 1,000 views anymore and very few videos get over 30 likes. Simon has received numerous negative comments from people regarding his channel and a user (with over 70,000 subscribers) jokingly said that his channel died. Simon was frustrated that not so many people are enjoying his channel as much as before but decided to continue making videos nonetheless.
2018On December 30, 2018, Simon A. premiered a very special end-of-the-year video on Baby Lamb Creations titled "Random Rewind", which was vast recap of all of the events that occured on his channel throughout 2018. It is an obvious parody of YouTube Rewind, but it was also in response to the YouTube Rewind of that year getting an incredibly negative reception and a massive amount of dislikes so Simon wanted to do something special to satisfy his own fans and see if he can do a good job recapping 2018 on his own community. The Rewind featured a remix mashup of "No Money" by Galantis and "Waiting for Love" by the late Aviici, a montage of various videos made throughout 2018, and even tributes to some of the people who passed away in 2018. The 7-minute-long video got 70 likes and over 1,000 views, and a lot of fans were happy with the video. So was Simon.
2019On December 31, 2019, Simon A. premiered yet another Random Rewind to recap a lot of the events that defined 2019 for Baby Lamb Creations and it was parodying the YouTube Rewind of that year, in response to YouTube's attempt at making a better rewind for the audience which eventually led to a lot of disappointment. That year's Random Rewind was twice as long as the previous Rewind, being 14 minutes long. It featured numerous songs (more songs played than last year's) such as "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Minnie Mouse (from the 1988 Disney special Totally Minnie), a mashup of "Friend Like Me" from Aladdin and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", and a mashup of "Counting Stars" by One Republic and a Sesame Street parody of "Five-By" by Train. Unlike last year's Rewind, there's also a recap of what Simon considers the best Musical Mashups he has made and a recap of Baby Lamb & Friends: The Movie. It got a lot more reception that last year's rewind, getting over 100 likes and nearly 3,000 views.
