About

In 2015, Johnson founded the company Planet Dolan, and created two new sub-channels: Danger Dolan Games (focusing on game-related videos, including the popular countdowns, which was a renaming of his first channel, "TheDDGuides"), and Danger Dolan Movies, focusing on movie-related content. In September 2015, Super Planet Dolan (an animated format) was launched. Currently he owns three Youtube channels:

Shortly after forming Planet Dolan Pty Ltd, the channel underwent some changes, most notably the addition of at least six additional voice actors/characters. His catchphrase, "HAVAGUDWUN' is still used as his trademark signoff after each video.
The main channel, Planet Dolan, which initially focused on countdown lists, such as 15 Worst Conspiracies of All Time , began publishing another format known as 'True Stories'. In True Stories, viewers are asked to submit their best stories on a range of topics. The short stories are then handpicked by the channel's writers to appear as a featured story for one of the videos.

Super Planet Dolan is an animated channel, which comedically tackles abstract concepts and metaphysical questions such as: How Do Mermaids Make Babies? or Why Do Cats Hate Water?

Planet Dolan Entertainment is a channel for video games/digital entertainment related content. It usually appears in a classic countdown format, such as 15 Hardest Video Game Choices Ever

Jonhson's character, 'Danger Dolan'

Contrary to popular belief, Johnson has definitely revealed his face on many occasions, whenever he livestreams and at public events.

In 2017, Danger Dolan appeared as a featured creator and industry panellist at Vidcon Australia. Vidcon Australia's inaugural conference in Melbourne marked Daniel's first public appearance as a featured online creator and contributing panellist. 
Aswell as participating in exclusive meet and greets with convention-goers, Daniel was asked to be part of the industry panel: 'Building a Team', which was moderated by Stephanie Patrick (Theorist Inc), alongside Dodie, Tom Armstrong and Ian Hecox (and more). The convention was where he launched a range of merchandise .
In February 2018, Planet Dolan merch was made available online.
