* LargeHam: Tony the clock.



* SimilarSquad: The characters in ''Craig's Big Day'' almost all appear to be counterparts of the DHMIS universe, including a computer, a clock with a face, the show's creators (like the puppeteers in DHMIS 4), a fuming microwave, etc.



* TastesLikeDiabetes: The love world in the Third episode. There are clouds and rainbows everywhere the sky is pink, and it is inhabitated by furry animals and talking flowers. [[invoked]]

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: In DHMIS 2, the characters constantly flub the use of "quarter to #". For example, when Tony says the time is "quarter to nine," Tony shows 9:15, as opposed to 8:45. Considering that they also at one point say that the time is "20 past day", this is probably intentional.

* BaitAndSwitch: In the fourth instalment, Red Guy says "If only there was a way to learn more about the world..." and turns to the globe. Then Duck Guy says the same thing, also turning to the globe. The globe then suddenly grows a face, followed by a ''computer that wasn't even there before'' starting to sing.

** The fourth installment ends with [[spoiler:Red Guy dead and Yellow Guy and Duck Guy still trapped in the deteriorating digital world.]]
** The fifth installment's ending may be the most depressing one yet. Duck Guy gets [[spoiler:grinded into canned food (''alive!'') and served as lunch for the Yellow Guy. The latter is then force fed every can (unaware that he had just eaten his own friend), and ends up sitting in the dark kitchen, completely alone]]. Afterwards, the mysterious caller (who had been trying to call the two throughout the episode) is revealed to be [[spoiler:the absent Red Guy, who had been calling from a phone booth outside]]. The episode ends with [[spoiler:Red Guy, dressed in a trenchcoat and carrying a suitcase, walking away from the phone booth in the rain.]] There's no explanation as to why he is doing this, but judging by the depressing rainstorm, the somewhat melancholic jazz music, and the fact that [[spoiler:he has a suitcase]], it's certainly not a happy reason.

** This theme was expanded upon in the fourth installment, where the focus is a singing computer who, at first, seems really helpful, touting how much knowledge he has and all the things he can do. However, he then starts asking the puppets extremely personal questions, such as what their blood type is and the colour of their hair. Later on, once the puppets are in the digital world, they can only do three things: look at stuff, try on clothes, and dance aimlessly. They do this again and again, seemingly forever, until Red decides to quit the whole thing.

* ContinuityNod: In the second video, there is a line that clearly sets up a rhyme in "green", but Tony uses "brown" instead. Why? Because, of course, green is not a creative color.

** But who could forget our [[ComicBook/SpiderMan friendly neighborhood guide, Sketchbook]]? From the first film alone, she ruined Yellow Guy's painting of a clown by smearing black ink on it just because she thought Yellow Guy wasn't following what she thought being creative was, and also notified him about green not being a creative color when he wanted to use it.

Their most well known and successful project is ''Don't Hug Me I'm Scared''. Beginning as a one-off short film in 2011, the series was crowdfunded and turned into a six-episode miniseries in 2014. The series lampoons children's television shows like ''Sesame Street'' by juxtaposing puppets and songs against unsettling imagery and existential horror. Each episode stars a trio of nameless puppets who encounter a "teacher": an anthropomorphic object or animal who tries to teach them about one of the "six subjects of life" through a musical number. The songs start off chipper and happy, but things inevitably take a turn for the worse... and usually culminate in a "lesson" the puppets aren't going to forget anytime soon.
