''Nichtlustig'' (a.k.a. ''Notfunny'') is a [[NotableGagPerDayWebcomics gag-per-day format]] comic series by German comic-strip artist Joscha Sauer. According to himself, it was something he did to pass the time, while looking for a real job. That was in 2000. He seems to have quit his search.

So what's it all about? Let's see: Clowns chopping off their legs for no reason, lemmings finding creative ways to commit suicide (or stalking [[TheGrimReaper Death]]), Yetis melting their caves in the course of baking gingerbread... You get the idea.

...[+Welcome to ''notfunny''!+]

There exists a [[http://www.nichtlustig.de/main.html German]] as well as an [[http://www.notfunnycartoons.com/main.html English]] version of this strip series. ''Nichtlustig'' started as a {{webcomic}}, but to date the cartoons have also been published as {{comic strip}}s and (with some exclusive material) as a 5-volume book series.

Not to be confused with DudeNotFunny.
!! Tropes in the ''Nichtlustig'' cartoons:

* BerthaInTheAttic: [[http://www.notfunnycartoons.com/toondb/090425.html The eighth dwarf.]]
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti
* BrickJoke: Oh so much.
* {{Camp}}: The Poodle of Death in his greatcoat ("tuntig gut oder tuntig schlecht?"/English translation "camp gay good or camp gay bad?"), or when he frets about something.
* ClassicalMovieVampire
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Herr Riebmann / Mr. Hunswacker, who lives inside a wall.
* DeathSeeker: The lemmings.
* {{Dracula}}: He likes his solar coffin Van Helsing gave him.
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: One should always have a penguin around to blame. [[http://www.notfunnycartoons.com/toondb/100428.html See?]]
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Frank, who for some reason likes to hang out with [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti the Yetis]]. One of the cute sort - does react strangely to [[{{Lunacy}} full moon]], though.
* GermanHumor
* GrimReaper: The suicidal lemmings all have a crush on him.
* GrumpyOldMan: Mr. Riebmann.
* InterspeciesRomance: Quite a bit.
** Well, there ''was'' this kid with three eyes.
** And the nice gorilla lady who likes her human partner for his personality - not only because he has banana-legs.
** The dog and the dinosaur might qualify. Though it could be argued that his love has something to do with the skeletal buildup of his love interest.
** The lemmings and Death, of course. Allowedly, it is a little one-sided. Also, one could argue that Death doesn't really belong to a species.
** And the tree and the sheep. That's where cotton comes from. (German ''Baumwolle'' means literally "tree-wool".)
* KillerRobot: This one's different from the usual kind, though (see picture).
* ''VideoGame/{{Lemmings}}''
* MadScientist: Two of them.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[http://www.notfunnycartoons.com/toondb/090527.html By name.]]
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Some of them just wanna cuddle!
* PorkyPigPronunciation: Let's just say, it helps if the doctor treating you is able to pronounce ''heart defibi...defrib...defibiri...defibrillator''.
* RunningGag:
** The lemmings trying to commit mass suicide and failing (a crago ship of trampolines passing by, heading away from a cliff due to bad orientation skills...)
** Mr. Riebmann, an old man who lives in the wall and is understandably grumpy about it, who passes the time by getting into arguments with his neighbor.
* TimeMachine: Not too surprising with two {{Mad Scientist}}s.
* TropaholicsAnonymous: [[http://www.notfunnycartoons.com/toondb/100711.html Sun-haters Anonymous]] (snowmen and vampires).
