Daily life is an American animated web series that originally aired from December 3, 2011 to February 24, 2012. The series was broadcast on the site GoAnimate and was created by Koopatrev Productions co-founder Donner Damn. Daily life met many issues and criticism for its poor reception, though they were very minor as the series itself was very tight and had managed to keep itself in the GoAnimate range.
Daily life aired its first episode on December 3, 2011, which was scratched off the previous animations known as Animation Tests which were created for inspiration. Animation Tests was created by Donner Damn, Seth Runs and Ted Cunt; all of the crew of Koopatrev Productions. Daily life premiered on December 3, 2011, about two weeks after Animation Tests' second season's finale. Daily life was canceled on February 24, 2012 with a total of three seasons.

Koopatrev Productions was founded on June 26, 2010, which was around a week before Animation Tests' series premiere. Damn decided to create a new series shortly after Animation Tests' second season's finale. The "new series" was then given the name Daily Life, and was later changed to Daily life with an alternative title of Daily-life. Daily life premiered on December 3, 2011. Despite the show's cancellation, Animation Tests is still airing.
2011: The first and second seasonEdit
Daily life finished its first season on December 13, 2011, and the second season started airing on December 15, 2011. There were no production seasons or periods; the episodes were made on the scheduled air date. Also, the episodes were intended to be all in one season, but the seasons were used to add effect.
Daily life received overwhelmingly negative critical reception for the first season, mainly from the entertainment websites, known as Koopatrev Solo and Koopatrev Community, respectively. However, the highest view counts were recorded in the first season.
2011-12: Criticism and the third season's cancellationEdit
Daily life had met many criticisms throughout the series. The poor critical reception in the first season led to many issues. The Koopatrev Community panned the first season and said that the humor was of very poor quality. Koopatrev Solo gave season grades of E- and C+ for the first and second seasons, respectively.
Daily life was renewed for a third season in December 2011, with its first episode premiering on January 13, 2012. The viewership ratings bumped up, but then dropped gradually throughout the season. Daily life was canceled on February 24, 2012 with a total of 28 episodes (one unaired in the second season due to an issue with GoAnimate on the video's content), due to low ratings, even though the view count was slightly higher than the second season's.
