TimmyTurnersGrandDad (abbreviated TTGD) is a collaborative fan channel created by Blazephlozard and Tev Teusixten.[1] It started on October 1, 2016, a day after the SiIvaGunner channel was announced to end. Its name and channel description are references to GilvaSunner's first channel, TimmyTurnersDad, with the latter being copied and paste.[2]

History

The first rip, "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire" was uploaded on October 1, 2016, referencing SiIvaGunner's first rip.

When the channel started, it had a team composed of new contributors from the SiIvaGunner fan Discord and other fan channels, as well as a few SiIvaGunner contributors, such as The Duane, Akfamilyhome and Brawlcats.

On May 15, 2017, TTGD released their first album, My Video Game And Anime Rip Collection, VOL 1!!, with over 150 tracks from the channel's first 7 months. The channel then went "On Vacation", uploading sparingly until August 29, 2017, when they returned with "Return to Dreamland - Kirby's Return to Dream Land" and "Butter Building Fusion Collab".

On October 1, 2017, to celebrate the channel's one year anniversary, TTGD released their second album, TTGD's Highest Quality Rips: Volume 2minisdad.

On February 2, 2019, TTGD released TTGD's Highest Quality Rips, Vol. 3: TTGD Gold the largest rip compilation album from TTGD as of now with over 215 rips total. The announcement video for this album was uploaded on April 10th and was called "A Golden Announcement".

On September 30, 2019, TTGD released their fourth non-themed compilation album, simply called, The Fourth One. It was announced through the video "An Announcement".

Channel descriptions

The TimmyTurnersGrandDad channel description is copied from the long-defunct YouTube channel TimmyTurnersDad (made by the same person who would later create GilvaSunner), with an added disclaimer. An old version of it was partially archived by a Wayback Machine screenshot from January 15, 2017.[3] At that time, it read:

Earth-shatteringly awesome music... What more does one need?

(All of the uploads are willingly submitted by a team of content creators. Also, please keep you...

The current channel description was most likely introduced during the vacation. It reads:

Earth-shatteringly awesome music and free awesomesauce... What more does one need?

(We are not affiliated with SiIvaGunner. If his name is on a rip, it's either a joke, or giving credit for audio from him.)

The closing parenthesis at the end was removed at some point in 2021, but was added back after the release of "Things That Never Change (Changing Version) - Wario Land 4".[citation needed]
