An aspiring supervillain trying to get into the Evil League [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment of Evil]] finds himself entangled in a LoveTriangle with his [[ArchEnemy arch-nemesis]] and a girl he knows from the laundromat. Presented as a three-part [[TheMusical Musical]] WebOriginal VlogSeries, created by Creator/JossWhedon out of his own pocket as a more-or-less direct result of the [[UsefulNotes/UnionsInHollywood Writer's Guild]] [[TVStrikes strike]] of 2007-2008.

* HeroesWantRedHeads: Ok, so the term "hero" is debatable but both Doctor Horrible and Captain Hammer go for Penny. Even if Hammer does just want to [[KickTheDog screw with Horrible]].

* CreateYourOwnVillain: It is heavily implied (and outright stated in the prequel comics) that Captain Hammer is the reason why Dr. Horrible is a villain - Hammer believed anyone nerdy or intelligent was destined to become a MadScientist, and his preemptive first strikes against the nerdy Billy are what drove him to villainy. The story then cements it by having Hammer's attempt to defeat Horrible once and for all be what drives him over the edge into true evil.

** Dr. Horrible has his own tune
** Bad Horse does as well, right down to it being the ringtone on Horrible's phone for when Bad Horse calls.

** Bad Horse does as well, has his own tune and a trio of evil cowboy singers for the lyrics (who like to barge into peoples' homes), right down to it being the a Bad Horse ringtone on Horrible's phone for when Bad Horse calls.



* ToTheBatnoun: Parodied. In his prequel comic, after concocting a new way to fight Captain Hammer, Dr. Horrible tells Moist to "Fetch the Horrible Mobile!" ...which is just Moist's perfectly ordinary car. That he he wishes the Doctor wouldn't call that because it's "a very reliable car".

Added DiffLines:

** "It's two Rs actually, H-O-R-R... yeah." What kind of journalist would misspell "Horrible"? The kind who's writing down "Whorable".

The series won the 2009 People's Choice Award for "Favorite Online Sensation" as well as several 2009 [[http://www.streamys.org Streamy Awards]] for:
* Audience Choice Award for Best Web Series
* Best Editing
* Best Cinematography
* Best Directing for a Comedy Web Series
* Best Male Actor in a Comedy Web Series
* Best Original Music
* Best Writing for a Comedy Web Series

(In addition, the award for Best Female Actor in a Comedy Web Series went to Creator/FeliciaDay, but for her performance in ''WebVideo/TheGuild'', not ''Dr. Horrible'').

It also won the 2009 Emmy for ''"[[OverlyNarrowSuperlative Outstanding Special Class Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program]]"'', making it potentially the ''first'' show to have won an Emmy without having ever been aired on television. Possibly a unique honor; definitely exceptional. Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the Primetime Emmys that year, and Nathan Fillion reprised their roles in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGBOgMXYnGU a brief scene]] during the show in which Dr. Horrible intercepts the ceremony, intending to end television and replace it with the internet, but is interupted by Captain Hammer, who tells about his love of television. It also picked up the 2009 HugoAward in the more conventional "Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form" category. It was also featured in ''Time'''s list of the best inventions of 2008.
