The Net Worth of Cartoonz

His online fame has led to numerous opportunities and collaborations with other famous names, and as he continues his career, it is expected that his net worth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and YouTube Beginnings

Very little is known about Cartoonz life before he started his YouTube channel. There are almost no details regarding his childhood, his family, and his education. According to several sources, he worked different jobs before discovering that he could work as a content creator. His name Cartoonz came from his time working as a DJ when he worked under the name, DJ Cartoonz. Since it was difficult to establish sustainability in that job, he also looked for other work.

He likely graduated with a degree in engineering, as he worked as an Aircraft Structural Engineer for five years before starting on YouTube. Eventually he discovered the website and found a potential career there, focused on one of his big passions, gaming. The video sharing website is owned by Google and allows users to upload their own videos, which can then be viewed, rated, shared, and commented on by other users. Popular videos usually lead to users subscribing to the content creator. Since its inception, YouTube has been responsible for millions of hours of user generated video uploads, and its fame has even reached a point when corporations have also become involved. It is considered one of the main sources of video content, whether it be video clips, music videos, live streams, video blogs, and more.


YouTube Content

Cartoonz started his YouTube channel posting videos about one of his hobbies at the time, “Yu-Gi-Oh”. The collectible card game published by Konami is based on the manga franchise of the same name created by Kazuki Takahashi, and according to Guinness World Records, it holds the title of the top-selling trading card game in the world, having sold 22 billion cards worldwide.

After some time, he diverted from creating card content and started focusing on posting video game content, in which he is seen playing several games. He started gaining a lot of attention as he began collaborating with established YouTube personalities, such as H20 Delirious and Lui Calibre. He began with uploading a video for the game “WWE 2K14”, playing with the two. The professional wrestling video game is the first World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)-based game that 2k Sports published after the bankruptcy of THQ. His fame and subscribership continued to grow, thanks to his playthroughs which often involved a lot of comedy.

The fighting game is the 10th main installment of the “Mortal Kombat” video game franchise and a sequel to 2011’s “Mortal Kombat”. The show has two players fighting against each other using various attacks, and has received a lot of critical acclaim, with many calling it one of the best “Mortal Kombat” games to be released.

In recent months, Cartoonz has been focused on new games, including “TABS: Totally Accurate Battle Simulator”. The Steam simulation game allows players to create a variety of soldiers which then fight another army of his/her choosing, and the player can then spectate the fight of each army. The game has become popular due to its goofy take on combat and silly graphics.
