WaddleTube, or PengTube, is a video sharing website on which users can upload and share videos. A PSA agent and two workers in Club Penguin got together with Gary and made the site. The website is available to the whole of Antarctica, except places with poor satellite and connections. The company is based in Club Penguin, inside a large igloo for the USA, and also inside a large igloo for UnitedTerra in Carcery. The site uses advanced technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips, and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos. Most of the content on WaddleTube has been uploaded by individuals, but companies have made official accounts for reasons above. As of Early 2015, WaddleTube released "WaddleTube Blue", an ad-free service that allows any video to be played even in offline mode alongside many other features.

Background[edit]

The original WaddleTube logo. It is still used in some areas.

In January 2005, scientist Gary the Gadget Guy had been involved in human investigations, and as investigating human products, he came across a site called "YouTube", but Antarctica didn't have a connection to the human site, and only master-minds had access. So then he went to a penguin from the Penguin Secret Agency, who was involved in the human investigations, and asked him if he could found the site and manage it. The penguin was Brad Burley, and agreed. He got two of his friends - Teve Gren, who was a local tour guide, and Yawod Harim, who was a sled-racing instructor and part-time waiter at the "Pizza Parlour" in Club Penguin. After, Gary contacted the Terrain Spy Union, who had gotten permission to access the site to other countries in Antarctica. G then set up the site and domain name on March 14, 2005, www.waddletube.aq. He then left the site to Brad, Teve and Yawod, who all made an official WaddleTube channel and one for themselves each. Flyers went everywhere, asking penguins to make an account and subscribe (when another user "subscribes" to their channel and know every time they have a new video) to them. By December 2005, over 200 users had joined and about 190 of them subscribing to the 4 official channels. Then on the day after they actually launched, over 300 videos had been uploaded by about the 90 that had joined at the time. The channels (user's profile and page) would have a link to go to, such as waddletube.aq/username. Simple account names such as "Speaker" and "Edward" had been taken very quickly.

The site populated, and by 2007, there were over 100,000,000 accounts and around the same videos. Users made their own comedy shows and animations, which were subscribed to very quickly. Then music channels and artists started joining around October 2008, such as Club Penguin Music Records, as "cpmusicrecords" and Music Industry as "musicindustry". Artist DJ Crow was the first musician to ever have a WaddleTube account, and uploaded his music and videos of him in the Night Club on his "DJ Digital Nyts" (he soon signed to Music Industry and uploaded sessions backstage and his music videos). Then Crow told his brother, Ninjinian, who made his account, and then more official company accounts were made. Crow had told Cadence to make an account as well, and got one of the one-word usernames, "cadence" - and more artists and officials came in and made theirs.

As of 2010, WaddleTube is one of the most popular websites ever created.

  • A user named "Penny"'s version of Club Penguin Style, 'Penny Style', became "popular" the day it reached 100,00,000 viewers. Unfortunately for "Penny", it was quickly revealed that most of the views were caused when "Penny" opened the video on various computers, making it seem like 100,00,000 viewers voluntarily watched it. "Penny"'s reputation rotted in over half an hour after the truth was revealed, and to this day, "Penny" is still trying to gain back the lost subscribers with new music videos - badly for him, nobody wants to watch them.
