''Meet the Fatheads'' is a ShowWithinAShow on WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife created by Ralph Bighead.

It stars Mr. and Mrs. Fathead, a [[BlatantLies happily]] married couple who engage in wacky antics such as whacking each other with their trademark parking meters.

WordOfGod says that the two were [[WriteWhoYouKnow modeled off of his parents]]. The series ran for a [[LongRunner successful 893 episodes]] before ending and being replaced with a SpiritualSuccessor called ''JustForFun/WackyDelly''.


!!Contains examples of:
* AccidentalMisnaming: They're the ''Fat''heads, not the Boneheads.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: The Fathead's pet fly acts just like a small dog, walking on a leash, and sometimes getting [[ThatCameOutWrong a bit too affectionate]] with Mr. Fathead.
--> '''Mr. Fathead''': Get this flying disease [[LargeHam OFF MY HEAD!]]
* AmusingInjuries
* AnthropomorphicFood: Melon Man.
* BerserkButton: Do '''not''' smash Mr. Fathead's eye. You will anger both him ''and'' [[spoiler:his eye elf.]]
* BigCreepyCrawlies: Mr. and Mrs. Fathead have a pet giant fly whom they walk on a leash like a dog.
* CartoonCreature: The titular couple look like slimy green things. They were modeled off of the parents of the creator, who were toads.
* CrapsackWorld
* DerangedAnimation
* DeadpanSnarker: Mr. Fathead can be one.
--> '''Mrs. Fathead''': Guess what I got?
--> '''Mr. Fathead''': A lobotomy?!
* TheDitz: Rollo, oh so much.
** How stupid is Rollo, exactly? He doesn't know how to use his hands. He knocks by bashing his head against the door.
* EyeScream: In one episode, Mrs. Fathead whacks her husband in the head, causing his eye to literally shatter like glass. See OurElvesAreBetter below for what happens next.
* {{Gonk}}: Rollo, even by the [[GrotesqueGallery standards of this series]], fits this trope to a T.
* GrossoutShow
* GrotesqueGallery: The characters are either this or UglyCute.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mrs. Fathead. [[JerkAss Mr. Fathead]] is debatable, though.
* TheKlutz: Rollo.
* LargeHam / NoIndoorVoice: Both characters, but ''especially'' Mr. Fathead.
* LaughTrack: This one is different in that instead of a whole crowd of people, you hear one man [[LaughingMad laughing insanely]] in the background. Somehow that makes it funnier.
** It gets even better when we learn that the lone deranged laugher is [[spoiler:Heffer]].
* LongRunner: In "JustForFun/WackyDelly", we find out that it ran for ''893 episodes''.
* MadeOfExplodium: [[spoiler: Melon Man's watermelons.]]
* NoNameGiven: The Fathead's pet fly.
* NoodleIncident: The beginning of Rollo's introductory episode. How did Mrs. Fathead [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext get her feet in Mr. Fathead's nostrils]]? And what was that "bake sale" Mr. Fathead was talking about?
** In the same episode, when Mrs. Fathead offers Rollo some cheesecake, Mr. Fathead yells, "Don't give him anything!" as if she's tried giving Rollo food before.
* OurElvesAreBetter: [[spoiler: Mr. Fathead is revealed to have an elf living in his eye in one episode. Of course, the elf grows extremely irate when Mr. Fathead's [[EyeScream eye is smashed]].]]
-->'''Elf''': Somebody's gonna pay for that glass!
* PigMan: Two appear at the beginning of the opening theme, only to be crushed by a falling cage.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Rollo, whose only introduction in his debut episode is Mr. Fathead reffering to him as an annoying neighbor.
* ScoutOut: The girl scout who gets eaten by Mr. Fathead in one episode.
* SimpletonVoice: Rollo.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Definitely on the cynical side.
* VerbalTic: [[TheKlutz Rollo]] has an Australian accent, and thus, as part of the common stereotype, ends all of his sentences with "mate".
* WouldHurtAChild: In one episode, a girl scout walks up to Mr. Fathead and asks him if he would like to buy some cookies. Mr. Fathead responds by [[spoiler:snatching her up in his jaws and chewing her up. You can even hear her bones crunching! Thankfully, Mrs. Fathead pulls her out, and she's okay.]]
** [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror But she didn't seem to be breathing. And we never see her again]].]]
