In the earliest episodes, Baman and Piderman were cartoon parody versions of popular comic book heroes, but they and their world soon take on unique characteristics. 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.
