Reflections on the 1st birthday of Cartoon Hangover.

As we all continue to celebrate the new year (Happy New Year, Everybody!), here at Cartoon Hangover we’re celebrating a great year. 2013 was our first full year as a channel on YouTube. And what a year it was!
17 million viewers around the world have tuned in 79 million times, and watched 245 million minutes (!) of our programming. We amassed 1.4 million subscribers across our six channels*. Cartoon Hangover was thesecond most subscribed channel of YouTube’s Original Channel Initiative.
Any way you slice it, that’s success. As one of our London colleagues put it, “Cutting through the noise on YouTube to build a large fanbase is getting tougher every day, what you just did will prove to the rest of the world what I already know — you know your shit ;-)”
