So, who is the genius behind Tyler Potter?
First off, he wasn’t created by Claire Violet Thorpe even though she borrowed him for her fan fiction series called the Series That Made No Sense. That series pokes fun at everything that is wrong with the Harry Potter series and tries to correct the mistakes, often with hilarious results.
But who is really behind Tyler Potter? His name is Jonas Sanders and he created Tyler for the show Space Wizards. The cartoon centers on Tyler’s adventures living in a steampunk version of an alternative Earth. But how and why Claire took Tyler’s name and began using it for a stupid character is beyond me. I think that Claire should change the hero’s name to something like River Valentine Potter and leave the name Tyler alone. But that’s just my opinion.
Anyway, I wonder how Jonas Sanders would react if he saw Tyler being part of a satire of Harry Potter. I don’t think he’d like that very much, knowing how bad the series could turn out, but we shall see…
