Baman and Piderman are basically crudely-drawn Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} knock-offs with weight gain and toddler-like intelligence. They live in separate houses, with Baman coming over to Piderman's house in nearly every episode. Their two friends, Pumkin and Tuba, live in Piderman and Baman's houses, respectively. Later episodes introduce characters like Dese Guys (off-color versions of Baman and Piderman with deeper voices who live in Piderman's basement), Baman's boss (a giant, yellow cat-like thing that comes and goes as it pleases), and Squib (a mass of green tentacles that acts like a {{Tsundere}} towards Pumkin). The show is mostly absurd humor wrapped around occasional hints at a much darker subtext... which usually turns out to be more absurd humor. Unfortunately, the series was CutShort, with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=GAYGord2rGo "Play Da Concert"]] being the final episode to be funded by Mondo Media in 2012. In more recent development news, however, the creators [[HappilyMarried (now Lindsay and Alex Small-Butera)]] began a [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1523165009/baman-piderman-make-da-show Kickstarter]] to fund the final 5 episodes planned out for the second season [[WrapItUp to give the series some closure]]. It reached its target funding in two days, and will have an additional two episodes, an [[LeFilmArtistique arthouse film]] directed by Dose Guys, a FilmNoir starring Baman, and a music video by Creator/NeilCicierega.

* MundaneUtility: Piderman has the same abilities as {{Spider-Man}}, such as walking on walls and the ability to shoot webs out of his wrists. He uses these for unnecessary purposes, such as grabbing small objects or dragging himself along the ground instead of walking.

Added DiffLines:

** Episode 2 also shows Baman and Piderman climbing on the top of a tall building. Later episodes establish that the characters live on a featureless white landscape with no sign of structures other than Baman and Piderman's houses, and other locales are only accessed via the Pizza portal.

* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: Baman is able to drive his house using a ship's steering wheel. It has no wheels, tracks, or any other plausible way of moving- although it does sprout legs (briefly) in the "I've Got A Feeling" episode.
