Vivziepop uses her YouTube channel to post animations and updates on Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss. She also uses her channel to livestream.
Some of Vivziepop’s first videos were speed draws and animations of other characters she had made in the past (such as characters from Zoophobia). Even at that time, Vivziepop still had the idea of Hazbin Hotel in mind. Vivienne made speed draws of characters from Hazbin Hotel and even posted a video about the voices of each of the characters in the series four years ago.
Viv currently makes content mostly on her current running shows Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss. She promotes both of the shows‘ merchandise in the channel and livestreams herself either working on her series or doing a Q&A.

Hazbin Hotel is a web series about a demon who lives in Hell named Charlie. Hell has an "extermination" once a year where demons get exterminated by angels due to the overpopulation of Hell. Because of this, Charlie opens the Happy Hotel and hopes that demons would come to her hotel to rehabilitate and maybe even get redeemed and go to Heaven. She hopes that this is a more humane alternative to extermination and to help the overpopulation. After a disaster interview with everyone not on board with the idea of rehabilitation, Charlie gets the help of a powerful overlord named Alastor (or the Radio Demon) to run the hotel.
Helluva Boss is a web series that is set in the same universe as Hazbin Hotel It is about an imp named Blitzo who owns a business called IMPs (Immediate Murder Professionals) with two other imps (Moxxie & Millie) and and a husky (Loona). The IMPs is a business where demons can pay to get someone from Earth killed.
