Eric Schumaker, formerly known as CBoyardee and Chef Boyardee, was an American YouTube animator, game developer, and musician. He was best known for his Dilbert videos, "Dilbert 2" and "Dilbert 3", which were released in between 2010 and 2011. He had uploaded several other animations, skits, and vlogs.
He made all his videos private in 2013, and his account was terminated in 2014, removing all his videos as well. Subsequently, most videos have been reuploaded by fans.
He also composes music and is a developer of the RPG "Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. A sequel was announced in 2012, but has yet to be released.
In 2011, CBoyardee released what would become his most popular works to date: "Dilbert 2" and "Dilbert 3". The original uploads each gained over a million views, and were even featured on Buzzfeed, Kotaku, and Complex. Fans even sent the videos to Dilbert creator Scott Adams. In response, Adams stated he was disturbed because Dilbert's shirt pocket was on the wrong side. In 2012, the Robocop.mp3 song featured in "Dilbert 3" was sampled by rapper Lil B, in his song "In Down Bad".
Another popular video he uploaded in 2011 was "Re: Shrek is Dreck", a video response where he rants about Shrek haters. This video and his extreme devotion to the Shrek series is attributed to the birth of the "Brogre" internet subculture (which later spawned the internet famous "Shrek is Love, Shrek is Life").
In 2012, a sequel to Barkley's Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden was announced, with a Kickstarter campaign to help fund it. The game was successfully funded, raising over $120,000. The was originally set to be released in late 2013/early 2014, but has not come out yet.
In 2013, CBoyardee set all his videos to private for unknown reasons. This action was met with disappointment by his fans; as a result, several of his videos were reuploaded by different users, but some of his videos are now lost.
In 2014, his account and original videos were deleted. When asked about the matter on Twitter in January 2015, he stated he wasn't sure why this happened.
On February 22, 2019, he voiced a character in a video titled “day job".
