Gatorbox, formerly known as GatorAIDS Gaming, is a furry-themed video game and variety streaming website launched originally in December 2012 and again in July 2013. The channel features a number of different anchors and guests of varying degrees of "furry" however as of 2015 furry author & actor André Kon has served as the channel's primary host. Gatorbox routinely streams via Twitch and uploads truncated "recaps" of its broadcasts on YouTube.
The series ended in August 2017 after Hurricane Harvey destroyed the property where the show was filmed.
The station features a variety of content including gaming commentary, unboxings, and original series. Nods are frequently made to the furry fandom by means of off-handed jokes or by outright playing furry-themed games or unboxing furry products. References to popular community figures and companies, such as Bad Dragon, are very commonplace.
Gatorbox also runs the monthly parody news show What's Yiffin'? which takes a satirical look at "top stories" in the furry fandom. What's Yiffin'? has been produced since September 2015 and is generally included in the first broadcast of each month.
Gatorbox originally launched on December 21, 2012 and was funded and produced by the independent media group Twilight Foundry. Numerous attempts were made to present the channel to its intended furry audience, however a combination of lack of funding and short staffing resulted in the project failing and in March 2013 Twilight Foundry pulled the plug and dismissed the station's cast. Flying Lizard Productions, a multimedia team based in San Antonio, Texas, tried to recover the project during the summer of 2013 but ultimately failed to do so.
Near the end of 2013 some of the former cast of Gatorbox rebooted the project through self-funding. Since then, Gatorbox has been produced in-house under the "Gator Company" name.
