Microsoft Sam Reads Funny Windows Error Messages is the first TTS video series created by Mochirisu, both seasonally and overall. It premiered on July 5, 2011 and it is still ongoing in it's fourth season, the Season was in production hell, but now is back on production after S4E8P2's completion, which will return to airing regularly on October 13, 2017.

In this series, Microsoft Sam reads Windows error messages that pop-up on his computer, while trying to avoid the antagonists that try to stop him.

As of Season 4 Episode 8 Part 2, 40 Episodes and 5 Quickies have been completed.

Pre-Production (Early 2011 - June 2011)

Before the Errors (February 2011 - March 2011)

When Mochirisu started his channel on YouTube on February 3, 2011, he didn't know what a TTS video was. However, he started getting into TTS videos when he discovered Thunderbirds101's series, Microsoft Sam reads Funny Windows Errors. From that point on, he started to enjoy TTS videos, as well as watching the entirety (at that time) of FWE from Season 1 to the latest season (at that time also), Season 10.

Then after that, Mochi got the idea to begin making his own TTS video series which has become to be known nowadays as Microsoft Sam Reads Funny Windows Error Messages.

Production of Season 1 (April 2011 - June 2011)

Before Mochi had heard of atom.smasher.org he used paint, which only appeared in Season 1 Episode 1 (now deleted and replaced with a 2012 remade version). The use of paint made a few viewers not happy, but Mochi states that this was done on purpose to see which style was good for the series, Mochi chose the latter of the styles (the one from Season 1 Episode 2).

Season 1 (7/5/2011 - 7/24/2011)

Season 1 premiered on July 5, 2011 with the first two episodes of the series and was aired bi-weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

It didn't feature huge and structured story-arcs or any main antagonists. Each episode contained a random and unsorted bunch of errors with Sam facing random antagonists and viruses.

It concluded on July 24, 2011 with episodes 7 and 8. The finale was a cliffhanger with Weegeeta 9000Bit appearing and DARO Retard Capsules raining from the sky, he then blows up ROFL City (Known as LOL City in Season 1) with his laser.

A remade version is available here.

The original versions of the episodes are also available on the playlist here, with the exception of the first episode which was remade due to awful quality. (please note that the ratings and comments are disabled on the original versions)

Season 1 Trivia:

  • Each episode ranged from 1 minute to 3 minutes in this season.
  • This is the shortest season of all in both episodes and duration for both the original and the remake, 8 episodes were aired and the length is 14 minutes and 49 seconds (original) and 18 minutes and 10 seconds (2016 remake).
  • The entirety of Season 1 was produced before the series premiered.
    • For this reason, this was the only season without any hiatuses, but some dates were missed as Mochirisu was unaware that he could be busy on those days.
  • There are white-spacing problems on errors in S1 E1 - S1 E5, this was fixed in the 2016 remake.
  • For the series' fifth anniversary on July 5, 2016, a remake premiered. It includes all 8 episodes in the style of Season 3 and onwards and has new voice lines for Microsoft Sam.
    • Mochirisu originally planned to not remake the first episode of the series, due to it already having a remade version created back in 2012, due to the original version being terrible.
      • You can see effect of this at the end slate of the video where one video cuts to this version, this was accidentally left in.

Season 2 (8/3/11 - 9/8/12)

Currently being re-written... Check back soon

Season 2 Trivia:

  • Mochirisu considers this to be the worst season in the series, due to it introducing backgrounds behind errors without using Vegas. This entire season will be remade in 2018.
  • This season was originally going to end in 2011, however it took way longer to end due to Chao Wars, and the failure of Mochirisu's computer.

Season 3 (9/21/12 - 1/18/14)

Info yet to be posted...

Season 3 Trivia:

  • Season 3's finale was going to have an RPG battle, this was cut because Mochirisu was too lazy to make such a scene. These scenes will be seen in the second part of Season 4 Episode 8 and uses the elements from this cut fight scene.
  • S3 E6 is the shortest episode of the series (Minus the intro), this was due to the fact that M0CH1R15U was uninspired at the time to make episodes.
  • Season 3 once had the longest hiatus of any season (S3 E11 - S3 Finale, 11 months), this honor now goes to Season 4.
  • The shortest gap between seasons was between Season 3 and Season 4. The next season aired 6 days after Season 3's finale because Mochirisu wanted to push the 4th season immediately due to the large amount of delays for the S3 Finale.
  • Season 3 was originally going to have 24 episodes. However, Mochirisu knew that was too long for a regular season (8 - 12 Episodes), so it went back to season 2's length in episodes.

Season 4 (1/24/14 - Current)

Info yet to be posted...

Season 4 Trivia

  • Season 4's length will be 16 episodes, making it the longest season in the series.
  • Season 4 had the longest hiatuses in the series, the season has lasted for nearly 4 years.
    • In fact, it was so long that this season was made in three video editors.
      • Episodes 1 and 2 were made in version 11 of Vegas.
      • Episodes 3 - 7 and both parts of 8 were made in version 13 of Vegas.
      • Episodes 9 and onwards will be made in Adobe Premiere CC.
  • S4 E6 brought the series to 4K (2160p) and introduced a new episode layout:

Tip of the Day > Intro > Fake Episode Title > Real Episode Title > Part 1 > Break (In some episodes) > Part 2 > To be Continued, Question of the Day, & End-slate > Sponsor > Info

  • However, the series will be returning to 1080p starting with Season 4 Episode 8 Part 2, but at 60fps, and the episode layout will be returned to it's old format (minus the sponsor and question of the day), but will still include a fake title.
    • The reason for this switch-back is the same as Thunderbirds101's reason for returning to 720p in Season 11 Episode 5 of Funny Windows Errors.
  • Season 4 is the only season so far to include a two part episode that is not branched into a multi-episode story-arc, Season 4 Episode 8.
