WTLNetwork is a consortium of students who work together to create YouTube poops.
The head honcho. Maintains and uploads videos to the WTLNetwork YouTube account. He’s the guy who replies to your emails and comments. He also does a bulk of the work on the poops and is the guy who does a lot of the voices and live action skits.
The ideas guy. Thinks up a bunch of all the funny shizz you see. He’s the one who thought up Special Edward. He’s also one of the main voice artists you hear in the poops and is the only voice in the ZZZap! redub.
Jay joined the WTLNetwork team in 5 February 2011. A lifelong friend of Sam, he provides ideas and technical knowledge to the team.
TheEvstar (known as TTTEevstar on YouTube) is an occasional contributor to WTLNetwork. He mainly uploads poops that he made to his own YouTube account, but occasionally contributes to poops made by WTLNetwork.
The special effects wizard. He’s the guy behind a lot of the explosions and random special effects you see in the poops. He’s a true master when it comes to making stuff explode or fall apart. Chazlar decided to leave WTLNetwork on 8 January 2011 to pursue other projects.
In early 2005, Sam made a poop of 'Bean', the Mr Bean movie. This poop was put together mostly in Windows Movie Maker, however some elements were completed with Premiere Pro, at which time Sam was extremely unfamiliar with. He referred to this poop as a 'spoof', as the word 'poop' had yet to be widespread. Later in the year, using the same methods, he created a poop of 'The Wrong Trousers', which he called 'The Wrong Movie'.
On May 31, 2006, shortly after his 14th birthday, he created the YouTube channel 'WeirdEars', where he would upload mostly Doctor Who-related materials, until April 26, 2008, when he uploaded a video that could arguably be called a YouTube poop. It consisted of the entire set of 'Coronation Street' being destroyed in a massive inferno, a storyline which would later become a reality. To this day, Sam claims it was his idea. These crude poops were shortly followed by the mildly successful mini-series 'Yahoo! Answers - Captain Obvious' in which Sam would post witty, clever or just plain rude responses to questions asked on Yahoo! Answers. 18 months later, the account was suspended.
On July 8, 2009, Sam opened the channel 'WTLNetwork', which was originally intended to be a platform for a sketch show idea that he and JT had formulated. However, the idea was eventually shelved. On October 31, 2009, after creating a Thomas the Tank Engine poop originally intended as a one-off, he decided to upload it to YouTube. Fearing suspension, as he already had two strikes on his WeirdEars channel, he instead uploaded it to the WTLNetwork channel. After being succeeded by several other Thomas poops, the channel gradually rose in popularity, which was when Sam decided to abandon the WeirdEars account.
Chazlar temporarily took over the pooping side of WTLNetwork after Sam's computer had to be formatted. At the time Chazlar hadn't made many poops entirely by himself and was busy working on other things, so struggled to keep up with WTLNetwork's standard. After uploading 48 videos, each gaining between 5000 and 25000 views, WTLNetwork went on hiatus after uploading 'Paul and Barry Make Music For The Toadie' on August 8, 2010, mainly due to Sam getting a full-time job and not having the time to produce as many videos as he had previously.
On October 9, 2010, two months and one day later, WTLNetwork uploaded the Thomas poop 'She Likes It Rough', which marked the comeback of WTLNetwork, albeit with a slower release rate than before.
Today, WTLNetwork continues to upload new poops and is also planning on pooping a wider variety of TV shows than before. The WTL bit for WTLNetwork stands for Where's the Line. The last poop he made is a Christmas edition called Another Christmas with WTLNetwork. Chazlar left WTLNetwork to work on other projects in January 2011, and is currently working on a space based sitcom. The newest member of the team, Jay, joined the team on 5 February 2011. The history of WTLNetwork saw a dark day on 11 February 2011, when he found that seven of his poops had been blocked worldwide by HiT Entertainment. Despite filing disputes on the grounds of fair use, the seven videos were completely removed from YouTube on 16 February 2011 and a copyright strike put on the WTLNetwork account. WTLNetwork uploaded a video to the account ("The Death of WTLNetwork...?") which stated that WTLNetwork would stop making Thomas poops from this moment on. There was a space of two days before WTLNetwork's next video, "I Promise You Nothing", a poop of The Rottentrolls. This was followed fifteen days later by "It All Started Back In Second Grade...", a poop of Recess and (to date) WTLNetwork's only poop of an American television program. On 8 March 2011, a mere three days after his last poop, WTLNetwork surprised the YouTube poop community by uploading a new Thomas poop. There were a number of differences in this poop however; instead of focusing on one episode, the poop consisted of two episodes. The other major difference was that the episodes were from series 4 as opposed to series 1 or 2. This marked the second time that WTLNetwork had used an episode narrated by Michael Angelis, but WTLNetwork would rather not talk about that, although it did mark the first time that an Angelis-narrated episode had been featured on his main channel.
