->''"I HATE VIDEOGAMES"''
-->-- '''Mickey the Dick'''

A 2010 [[WebAnimation Animated]] Web Series created by [[MaxGilardi HotDiggedyDemon]], ''Wacky Game Jokez for Kidz'' ''(abbreviated [=WGJ4K=])'' is a videogame-based comedy show that centres around Mickey the Dick, a cynical, belligerent street thug from the slums of New York City who is kidnapped by the corporation ''Videogame Videos (VGV)'' (for reasons never explicitly stated and is forced into being the creator of a online videogame parody series, alongside his production crew in the form of hardcore gamers [[TheShortGuyWithGlasses Eric]] and [[GamerGirl June]].

What makes this an unbearable punishment for Mickey is the fact that he has a massive disdain for anything related to videogames, and frequently expresses this by tormenting his co-workers, destroying equipment, not co-operating with orders and generally acting like, yes, ''a dick,'' much to the chargin of his boss, who is equally no stranger to Mickey's abuse.

The ten-episode series can be found on Website/{{Newgrounds}} or on[[http://www.youtube.com/user/hotdiggedydemon#g/u Hot Diggedy Demon's YouTube channel]]. Despite the story ending on a very ambiguous note, creator Max Gilardi has no intent on reviving the series for a second season or shorts. Instead he dumped the storyboards for the scrapped season 2 [[http://hotdiggedydemon.com/post/54865765857/i-know-that-you-dont-want-to-continue-wgj4k-but-can here]].

'''This series provides examples of:'''

* AffablyEvil: Surprisingly, Mickey comes off as this during one of his Mailbag segments (the one with multiple guest appearances).
* AffectionateParody: Of video game parodies/tributes themselves.
* AnthropicPrinciple: Discussed in the mailbag episode:
-->'''Micky''': If the premise of my situation is that I'm trapped, then I'm trapped! If you know what the definition of "trapped" is, then ''logically'' you can infer that something is keeping me here!
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: [[spoiler:"Was there ever a time when you were not a dick?"]]
* BookDumb: More like Book Oblivious, mixed with ObfuscatingStupidity. The show features a review of a ''Legend of Zelda'' video game, but the "game" is actually a printed copy of ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies''.
** Neither Eric nor June seems to know what a book is, referring to books as "those paper things with words in them".
* BrickJoke: In one of the FourthWallMailSlot episodes, Mickey's head is changed for the head of the cat from VGV's VanityPlate. Then, at the end of the episode (which is one of the longest episodes in the series, running over 10 minutes), the cat in the Vanity Plate has Mickey's head.
* [[CensorshipTropes Censor Bleep]]: Parodied in the mailbag episode. When Micky drops "Goddammit", "God" is bleeped but "dammit" goes right through.
* ClusterFBomb: "Retard" and "faggot" are probably Mickey's favorite words. He can be rather creative with his extensive use of swearing though.
* ComicTrio: The main characters.
* DeconstructiveParody: Of ''other'' videogame parody series.
* TheDitz: June.
* EvilInc: VGV, Video Game Videos. It is stated in the theme song that VGV is an "Evil Corporation". Mickey "confirms" that making video game videos for the Internet is what makes them evil.
* ExpositoryThemeTune
* FourthWallMailSlot: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yURt_13WN1A A whole episode dedicated to it.]]
* GamerGirl: June. She even has the phrase written on her shirt.
* {{Geek}}: Eric.
* GiveMeLibertyOrGiveMeDeath: DoubleSubverted
--> '''Mickey:''' Shoot me! I'd rather be dead than spend one more minute cracking jokes about Master Chief!
* HurricaneOfPuns: The ''Robert Burgless'' episode contains this.
* {{Jerkass}}: Mickey the Dick (duh).
* LaserGuidedKarma: Although in its way to being explained in the season finale, we assume Mickey's background makes him deserve the suffering his "job" causes him.
* MeaningfulName[=/=]PunnyName: June/Eric. As in, "[[SatelliteCharacter generic]]".
* TheNewRockAndRoll: Mickey thinks this way about video games.
* NonIndicativeName: [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids It is most definitely not a show for kids about wacky game jokes.]]
* RantInducingSlight: Subverted. June goes on a Gamer Girl rant for no reason.
* RobotBuddy: Eric claims to be a robot, so...
* TheShortGuyWithGlasses: Eric.
* ShipTease: Brought up in the fanart special thanks to an artist, but the ship is immediately sunk by Mickey.
-->'''Mickey''': Ew! Why are me and June hugging in this one? [[ShipSinking I wouldn't hug June with a gun to my head]]. (June starts to gets visibly upset) Not in a ''million years'' would I do that.
* ShoutOut: To ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood'', of all things.
* StrawCharacter: Robert Burgless, believe it or not.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: June's response to a fan asking whether she's the same June from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam''.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Mickey the Dick again.
* TakeThat: [[http://www.hotdiggedydemon.com/post/11213126260/is-it-just-part-of-mickeys-character-to-absolutely Apparently toward the culture behind video games.]]
* {{Troll}}: The Boss and Eric think Mickey acts like a dick just to elicit a reaction. Mickey denies it, though it is partly true.
* TwoGamersOnACouch: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. Even when there are three main characters, we have only two gamers on the couch; June and Eric. Mickey is not a gamer at all.
* UltimateJobSecurity: Mickey. For all the terrible things he does, it's surprising that VGV hasn't [[spoiler:triggered the bomb on his leg]] yet.
** Somewhat justified, since Mickey really has no choice but to do their bidding.
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Mickey.
* VillainProtagonist: Mickey is a misanthropic {{Jerkass}} who used to spend his free time mugging old ladies. He ''would'' qualify as an anti-hero if he ever opposed VGV instead of begrudgingly working for them.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://hotdiggedydemon.com/post/54865765857/i-know-that-you-dont-want-to-continue-wgj4k-but-can The main plot of the cancelled season 2 was already thought out.]]
