YouTube 101: Subscriptions is an educational episode that teaches new YouTube users how to use YouTube subscriptions. It shows Cuddles using YouTube while a voice over explains how to use features of YouTube subscriptions. The video can be seen at the HTF website here


The story begins in Cuddles' room, which is filled with posters of Giggles. He looks at a picture of her in a heart-shaped picture frame before going on the internet. He switches on the monitor of his computer and the YouTube page appears. He types "giggles" into the search bar and goes to "The Giggles Channel."

Cuddles quickly subscribes to "The Giggles Channel". He sees under "Recent Activities" a new video called "Giggles at the Malt Shop". Clicking it, he soon finds out, much to his shock and despair, that Giggles is cheating on him by going on a date with Disco Bear. The video, as it turns out, is on Disco Bear's channel. Cuddles quickly goes to his own page and types in a string of profanities on the bulletin board to show his rage at Disco Bear for dating his girlfriend. He unsubscribes to "The Giggles Channel", throws Giggles' picture into the garbage bin, and breaks down in front of the monitor.

The episode cuts back to Disco Bear's channel, and it is revealed that the "Giggles" seen with him is actually just a cardboard cutout that Disco Bear used to fool his audience.

"Subscribing to channels is a great way to stay current with your favorite users on YouTube."

{Cuddles turns on his monitor and types in "giggles" in the search bar.}

"When you come across a channel you like..." {Cuddles clicks on Giggles' YouTube channel icon, which takes him to The Giggles Channel, exciting him} "...click the 'Subscribe' button."

{Cuddles clicks on the Subscribe button}

"Now, whenever you're logged in, you'll get that user's latest video delivered straight to your homepage." {Cuddles goes back to the homepage and sees the "Subscriptions" section, but hasn't gotten anything from whom he subscribed to.} "Whenever that user rates, favorites, or comments on videos, you'll be notified in your recent activity feed on your homepage..."

{Cuddles looks at the "Activity Feed", where Giggles liked a video called "Giggles at the Malt Shop". He clicks on the video and watches it, and it's revealed that it's uploaded by Disco Bear Channel. The video shows "Giggles" sipping a milkshake with Disco Bear. Cuddles is shocked when he sees this and gasps before getting an annoyed expression.}

"...and if you want to see who is subscribing to your channel, you can keep track by looking at the 'Subscribers' box." {Cuddles goes to his YouTube Channel called "It's Cuddles" and looks at this subscribers section, which shows that Lumpy, Nutty, and Disco Bear are subscribed to him.}

"You can message your subscribers by posting a bulletin on your channel, which they'll see in their Recent Activity feed."

{Cuddles makes aggravated noises while typing "Cuddles ... #%&! #%? $!#% !!!!!", then posts the message}

"You also have the option to remove subscriptions at any time, by going into Edit Subscriptions, and choosing Unsubscribe."

{Cuddles clicks on edit subscription, chooses "Unsubscribe from The Giggles Channel" and then clicks "Update" before the monitor turns off. Cuddles throws the picture of Giggles into the garbage, and cries with his face on the keyboard.}

"You are now in the best position to stay updated in all the new content that interests you."
