Inanimate Insanity II (also known as Inanimate Insanity 2) is the second season of Inanimate Insanity, which was released on April 2, 2013, which was the same month Inanimate Insanity, the predecessor, began. Just like last season, the show is an animated competition series on YouTube. It began with 19 anthropomorphic objects, competing for yet another 1 million dollars. It will have 16 episodes by the time it ends[1].

Pre-Release Information

On June 3, 2012, Adam Katz officially confirmed the second season of Inanimate Insanity on the official YouTube channel. The second season was confirmed in a video concerning II's summer hiatus and the T-shirt contest.

On September 8, 2012, Adam posted an update on Season 2 showcasing the four eligible entries from the T-shirt contest. The viewers were allowed to vote for which character should join Season 2 until October 1 and they were to choose from Banana, Rubber Ball, Yin-Yang, and Guitar.

Also, during that time, Baseball, Yin-Yang, and Paintbrush were confirmed as season 2 contestants, while Bomb and Taco were confirmed to not compete in Season 2.

According to a Facebook post, Inanimate Insanity has stated that a new female contestant needs a clean design, which can be inferred to be Soap.

In one of AnimationEpic's real-life trailer videos, a picture of Paintbrush, Baseball, and Yin-Yang standing on Box are seen at the end for a quick moment, with the words "Coming April 2013", officially confirming the release date. This video also confirmed Box as a contestant, although it was created to deceive viewers that Box was simply an ordinary cardboard box.

On February 1, 2013, Marshmallow was confirmed to be in Season 2, according to the fifth episode of Ask Adam. It was also stated that two more characters have been revealed, one in a miscellaneous video, and the other in a previous episode. Microphone was been spotted in "Journey Through Memory Lane (Part 2)" in the corner. Box may also be considered to be the character revealed in the miscellaneous video, as he was shown in "Roger That", but was mistaken for an ordinary cardboard box.

On March 1, 2013, a teaser trailer for season two was uploaded, which confirmed Cheesy for Season 2. Fan and Nickel also appeared in the trailer but were not acknowledged for confirmation.

On March 17, 2013, it was announced on the official II Facebook page that the first two minutes of Episode 1 would be released at ObjectCon.

At ObjectCon on March 30, 2013, the first two minutes of Episode 1 was shown, and two characters were accidentally revealed, Box and Suitcase.

Non Returning






These characters were originally going to be in Season 2 but were eventually scrapped. The following descriptions are in Taylor Grodin's "Inanimate Insanity Secrets" video at 1:12.

  • Chip - A French Fry, but called "Chip", like in England. Had an English accent, but hated being called French Fry.
  • Hot Sauce - Spoke only Spanish, kind of like Baguette speaking French from BOTO.
  • Game Boy Color - An old-timer, didn't have a clue where he was. It would have a similar appearance to BMO from Adventure Time.
  • Pearl - Stuck-up and full of herself, wanted to be treated like royalty.
  • Hay Bale - Western and proud, slightly dim-witted, however.
  • Frank - A Hot Dog, his name is short for "Frankfurter", and acted as the "Cool Guy".
  • Goggles - The beta version of Test Tube. Full of "sciencey" stuff.
  • Textbook - A BIG nerd. Snorted and said many things that no one cared about.

Hay Bale and Frank eventually appeared in the show, debuting in "Alternate Reality Show". Their personalities and appearances matched their original concepts.

Contestant Reactions

In "Marsh on Mars" of the second season, Tissues is eliminated with 700 votes, and Apple in a close second with 554 votes. He then blames it on his "condiShAWn", and sneezes himself into the Rejection Portal.

In "Tri Your Best", the Cherries are eliminated with 974 votes, with Yin-Yang coming in second with 878 votes. The Cherries, then, admitted that they sent Marshmallow to Mars, and was then pushed in by Yang.

In "Cooking for the Grater Good", Trophy is eliminated with 1,945 votes, with Box coming in second with 739 votes. Trophy denies that he has been eliminated, despite watching the results. Cheesy then cracks a joke, as Trophy questions that he lost to inanimate cardboard box. He then steps on Box, as Suitcase calls him a monster. Knife then kicks Trophy into the Rejection Portal.

In "A Kick in the Right Direction", Box is eliminated with 1,442 votes, as Soap comes in second with 1,102 votes. Soap then exclaims that the "last piece can't be that bad", but spits it out moments after eating the piece. Suitcase then states that she will miss Box. Meanwhile, Nickel sarcastically says that Box was helpful before asking what kind of Box he was. Paintbrush then says that he was a Cardboard box, and says to Nickel: "Can't you tell?" Lightbulb then tells Paintbrush that Box can be whatever it wants to be. Apple then states that she will open the box, before Lightbulb telling Apple to be careful. Apple opens the box and states that there was a taco. However, when Knife opens the box, all he sees is the word "Box" scribbled with pink font. Apple then says that she was close. Afterward, MePad then kicks Box into the Rejection Portal.

In "Let 'Er R.I.P.", Yin-Yang is eliminated with 1,859 votes, with Paintbrush in second with 946 votes. Paintbrush then dodges the pumpkin, as Yin-Yang have their little argument in emotions after watching the results. They then apologize to the contestants for all the trouble they had caused. This was interrupted as their argument takes a twist, and they fight to the Rejection Portal and is eliminated.

In "Everything's A-OJ", OJ sues MePhone4 after he crashed his plane on OJ's apartment in "Breaking the Ice", and for sending the eliminated contestants to his closet without his consent. MePhone4 then denies this and says that he wouldn't hurt a fly, only to kill one moments later. Later in the courtroom, Paper defends the plaintiff, whereas Toilet defends the defendant. Moments after commencing, the judge then asks for the speech from a witness. The crowd and judge then tear up. The judge then says that he's never been so moved by a testimony. He then claims the sentencing for "unlawful detention, imprisonment, and a freaky portal that the defense claims just randomly opened one day". MePhone4's original sentencing was 1 hour in jail but was then increased to a day after Toilet splashed the judge with water. Soon after, OJ takes over and looks at his script. They then do the elimination. Both teams said that they won the challenge, and so, OJ picked one to be eliminated. After MePhone's return from the slammer, MePad revealed the results, and Apple is eliminated with 2,045 votes, while Paintbrush was second with 791 votes.

In "Theft and Battery", Cheesy is eliminated with a record of 2,605 votes and Balloon comes in second with 768. To which he decided to start becoming funnier (which Microphone said was better than him going back to doing commercials.) However, before he could finish his first non-pun, he is whacked into the Rejection Portal by Toilet.

In "Rain On Your Charade", After a long, intense pause, Soap is eliminated with a new record of 2,663 votes with Nickel in second at 1731. Soap had a blank-ish yet shocked reaction. She then at first starts saying it "was a mistake", but switched to a short speech about forcing people to do something and listening to your heart, then she walks backwards to the Rejection Portal.

In "Kick the Bucket", Balloon is eliminated by 5 contestants including himself. Suitcase said she was so unsure of herself. However, MePhone4 surprised Nickel announcing that it was a double elimination, which shocked Baseball. Nickel revealed that Balloon voted for himself and then says his final words before getting launched into the portal by Toilet. Suitcase and Balloon then say their final goodbyes to each other, and then the latter goes to the portal, leaving Suitcase to cry.
