A series of wacky Website/YouTube videos, Shaggy Dog Stories follows the exploits of talking poos, orange elephants, talking dinosaurs, evil bananas, and more. They can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiZQ9jupHUlkMYjC34U565A here]].
* AbortedArc: The Afro multi-parter has gone without any updates for some time.
* AllThereInTheScript: Not in the script, as such, but occasionally certain characters are only named in the credits.
* ArrangedMarriage: Dusty tries to arrange one for Charlene... only to suddenly realize that she's underage.
* ArtEvolution: Has occurred over the course of the videos, most notably with Dusty, Charlene, and 100% Grape (who, oddly, devolves; while his appearance in Episode 0 is now his standard one, in Episode 2 he's pretty badly drawn and in Episode 3, he's just a floating head).
* CallBack: Episode 13, ''Deja Poo'', is basically a remade Episode 1... but soon goes off the rails when [[spoiler: [[GratuitousNinja Ninjas attack]].]]
* CerebusSyndrome: Episode XVI, ''Succession of the Bum Witches Part I'', is far more plot-orientated than the other episodes.
* ChristmasSpecial: "A Very Dusty Christmas".
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Fred, who played an important role in the 1st episode, hasn't appeared since (bar a brief appearance in Episode 7).
* ClipShow: Episodes XI is some weird combination of this and PreviouslyOn, having no plot whatsoever.
* CliffhangerCopout: Happens quite a bit, with some episodes ending with a cliffhanger only for everything to return to normal next episode.
* ContinuityCavalcade: Practically every character in the series appears in the opening titles for ''A Very Dusty Christmas''.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: The ant-possessed Food Inspector, conquerer of the world, is eventually defeated when Daddy Long-Legs chokes him with cash. Also, Fred seems to have a machine dedicated entirely to punishing daughters.
* CreditsJukebox: Generally, the credits theme is ''Theme from a Summer Place'', but on occasion it has also been ''Yankee Doodle'', ''Do You Know the Muffin Man'', ''Yakety Sax'', and ''Hark the Herald Angels Sing''.
* DeusExMachina: By the end of Episode 2, Cinderella, 100% Grape, and the boy named Sam are all dead... only to be resurrected by the Magic Lady in the final scene at the insistence of Cinderella's ghost.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Not only is the art weirder in the first four episodes, but Dusty is a lot more irresponsible and Charlene acts a lot younger.
* ForeignQueasine: Mario's ant-filled pizzas and the deadly Fairy Bread.
* FunWithAcronyms: Subverted by a couple of acronyms which turn out [[WordPureeTitle not to spell anything]]: The Afro Lady's Operation FUSHI (Fudge Under Sicilian Homework Invasion), and Fred's PYDM (Punish-Your-Daughter-Machine).
* GRatedSex: Episode 12 reveals that 100% was born after an incident inside a jumping castle.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Employed in Barbie and Ken's confrontation in ''Barbie's War''.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Played with; after Scand E. Louse's proposal of marriage to Fleatis is turned down, and although Scand himself isn't driven to evil, his father, Daddy Long-Legs, kidnaps Fleatis and forces her to marry the Louse.
* MissingMom: Charlene appears to lack a mother entirely.
* NewJobsAsThePlotDemands: So far, the Ugly Old Hag has been seen running a trap store, a video rentals store, a pet shop, and an 'Authentic Italian Cuisine' stall.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: "[[Music/JustinBieber Justinian Beaver]]".
* OddballInTheSeries: While not exactly ''odd'', none of the characters from Episodes V & X have ever appeared again.
* OriginsEpisode: Episode 12 reveals 100%'s past.
* PreTitlesSequence: Occurs in ''Triumph of the Afro-Lady Part II'' and ''A Very Dusty Christmas''.
* PreviouslyOn: Appears at the beginning of ''Triumph of the Afro Lady Part II'', and also makes up the entirety of the oddball Episode XI.
* ShaggyDogStory: Almost every episode. It's right there in the name.
* StandaloneEpisode: While a new viewer can generally start on any given episode without confusion, Episode 5 is entirely disconnected, featuring an entirely new cast (which is never seen again).
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: '''ARLENE, QUEEN OF FECES!!!'''
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After Cinderella's death in Episode 3, 100% appears and sets out on a quest to retrieve his owner's ashes... only to totally disappear from the story.
