The Spoony Experiment (TSE) was a video series and website run by Noah Antwiler. Antwiler produced a variety of videos, including film and video game reviews, Let's Play videos, vlogs, commentaries and riffs. In 2010, the site also featured video game journalism at trade shows such as the Electronic Entertainment Expo. While he does stream on YouTube and post the streams afterwards, with the exception of a single vlog in December 2017, Antwiler has not produced new content in his traditional edited format since 2016.[2]


Antwiler's pseudonym "The Spoony One" or "Spoony" grew as an in-joke among Antwiler's friends, derived from a line by Tellah from Final Fantasy IV.[3]

From 2008 to 2012, Antwiler was a content producer for Internet media company Channel Awesome, with contributions to its comedy review website That Guy with the Glasses and video game review sub-site, Blistered Thumbs; he left in June 2012.[4] In November 2012 he denied his departure was due to tension with other Channel Awesome producers.[5] Noah has not produced a scripted review since May 13, 2016.[6]


Video game journalist Ben Croshaw mentioned "Noah Antwiler of Spoony Experiment" as his favourite Internet reviewer in a 2008 interview for GameSpot.[7] However, in a recent stream Yahtzee acknowledged that Spoony had "got sh*t" [8]

In 2009, Noah Antwiler won the award for "Funniest Person to Follow" in the Open Web Awards.[9] In 2010, Antwiler was one of the finalists for the "Must-Follow Personality" category of the renamed Mashable Awards[10] but did not win.[citation needed]

After his retrospective on the Ultima games, series creator Richard Garriott praised the videos and started following Spoony on Twitter. Garriott later did an interview with Spoony.[11]

Kenneth Lowe of Paste offered him praise as a YouTube pioneer. [12]
