―Jaltoid's channel description
Jaltoid is a YouTube duo consisting of American animators, artists, internet personalities, and voice actors Dalton Joyce (born September 13, 1991 ) and Emily "Emi" Kuc (born March 25, 1994 ). The duo produces animations on their main channel referencing many aspects of popular culture, such as gaming, social media, fandoms, and occasionally, references to channels they are associated with. They also have a secondary channel named Jaltoid Media, which uploads their weekly Let's Play series Jaltoid Games as well as other videos.
As of February 2018, their main channel has over 909,000 subscribers and over 111.4 million views.
Jaltoid was created by Dalton originally; however, the channel has become known for the efforts put forth by him and Emi. The channel was originally intended to be just for Dalton's use. The username Jaltoid evolved from his name. The two decided to work on the channel together since they were both unemployed. The live action videos were inspired by watching a lot of the Tom Green Show, and Nathan Barnett on YouTube.
The two realized that they could do better with animated shorts. Dalton had been animating a lot in flash growing up, and Emi had been drawing a lot growing up. They tested their collaborative skills with a 7 second video, wishing their friend Clark a happy birthday. The two strengths had been put to the real test when they experimented with "Ded Oreo HD." This project was intended to be worked on in 2011. It was originally for a series set to be released on Newgrounds in 2011, but that series was abandoned.
Since "Ded Oreo HD" the duo has been creating animated shorts for YouTube, promising weekly submissions.
Dalton is native to Newgrounds. He contributed to his account for 5 years, he decided to move to deviantArt in 2011. Then left deviantArt in 2012.
Emi is native to deviantArt. She had contributed to her accounts for 6 years before leaving.
The reason they left deviantArt was a result of a disagreement with the staff. The two drifted for a few months before finding their way to YouTube.
