The Romans didn't borrow this tradition from the Greeks, and the satyr plays didn't fare too well as the years went on. Only one example of this genre, ''The Cyclops'' by {{Euripides}}, survives. However, another play, ''The Tracking Satyrs'' by {{Sophocles}}, has a large number of surviving fragments. Further details of the genre can be pieced together from Athenian vase paintings showing the costumes and paraphernalia of the theater. Squat all to do with satire plays.

In 2011 Music/JohnZorn created a ConceptAlbum around satyr plays, simply titled "The Satyr's Play/Cerberus".

* ValuesDissonance: The surviving fragment of one of Aeschylus' Satyr Plays has a scene where an infant Perseus is allowed to masturbate a satyr. It may have been considered funny at the time, but now it comes across as pedophilia.

Theater in Athens worked differently than theater today. Plays were performed in a competition at the annual City Dionysia festival. Each playwright would write three tragedies, linked by theme and performed one after another. Understandably, six hours of bloodshed, torment, and woe had a way of depressing the audience.

So, after each tragic trilogy, the selected playwright would conclude things with a satyr play. A satyr play was a ridiculous, partially tragic, partially comic parody (or ''satire'', though our word satire does not come from this root) of a popular legend. They were loaded with sex, drunkenness, and black comedy. The satyr chorus were notorious for their costume, which featured large penises.

** There might be a ShoutOut to that in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', where, in one episode, the kids made a game of masturbating dogs ("Red Rocket," they called it). Or it might just be that StrangeMindsThinkAlike.
