->''"In life there are sometime consequences to the actions a hero must face, to the end of the universe..."''

''Perfect Hair Forever'' (2004, 2007) was a short-lived Creator/AdultSwim series that showcased {{Japanese Media Tropes}} the way a peacock displays his feathers. Lasting a mere six episodes and from the makers of ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' and ''{{Squidbillies}}'', the show was an AffectionateParody of anime, with an AprilFoolsDay marathon even being made to look like a fake Chinese bootleg. An additional seventh episode was aired in 2007 and for AprilFoolsDay 2014, an eighth and final episode was aired.


----
!!Tropes:

* ActionGirl - Brenda.
* {{Animesque}}: Obviously.
* AnimeHair - Coiffio is sporting some of the best anime hair ''ever''.
* AnimeThemeSong - each episode had a different one, except for the first one - it had an anime end credits song.
* AffectionateParody - You can tell the creators know their anime.
* BearsAreBadNews - [[DrinkingGame Drink when you see the bear!]]
* {{BFG}}: Cat Man has one when he's manning the convenience store.
* BigBad - Coiffio.
* BilingualBonus - "Uncle Grandfather" is a pun. In Japanese, that'd be ''Ojiisan Ojisan''.
** The credits in the first episode are written in Wingdings font.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: Spoofed during the April Fools marathon of the show. For example:
-->'''Gerald:''' You're pissing me off!
-->'''"Translation":''' You're beginning with the anger.
* BreakingTheFourthWall
* ButtMonkey - Model Robot.
** Also, [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Space Ghost]]. His two appearances have him getting eaten by a bear and then stumbling drunkenly into a network executive meeting looking for work.
* CatsAreMean - Cat Man. Also, Coiffio is described as "The Evil Controller of Cats."
* CatGirl - Inverted. Its a Cat ''Man'' in this series.
** Cat Man's real nature is played with. He obviously looks like a guy wearing a cat suit, but he denies it whenever it's brought up around him.
* CatchPhrase - Young Man: "You don't understand!"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first episode, Model Robot sounds like a stereotypical robot, while in later episodes he suddenly sounds a lot more laid back and has a tendency of adding 'baby' to the end of his sentences.
* CloudCuckooLander - Pretty much everyone, though some are worse than others.
* CrossdressingVoices: Gerald is obviously voiced by a woman, and a rather sexy sounding one at that. This parodies the highly feminine voices given to {{Bishonen}} characters.
* DerangedAnimation - Especially during the last episode.
* DirtyOldMan - Uncle Grandfather.
* DistractedByTheSexy - In the first episode, Uncle Grandfather tries to give Gerald some important information, but then he's distracted by Brenda and ends up telling him nothing important.
* DodgyToupee: Turns out Coiffio's impressive KaleidoscopeHair is just a wig.
* DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud - Terry/Twisty
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom - "The conwenience store...of death!"
* EasilyForgiven - Brenda by Uncle Grandfather after [[spoiler:starting the Cat-Bun Wars]].
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome - "Pwepawe- pwepa- prwe.... GET WEADY!"
** Also, "B'''l'''enda" and everything else Coiffio says.
*** Coiffio's dialogue is basically what would happen if Elmer Fudd had a Cajun accent.
* HairDecorations - Brenda has got some nice ones... hair decs, I mean.
* EvilTwin - Give Uncle Grandfather hair and a smaller beard and you have Coiffio.
* FairyCompanion - Gerald's eclectic acquaintance, Action Hot Dog.
* {{Fanservice}} - Brenda is the anthropomorphic personification of typical anime fanservice directed at young men, which is fitting considering the show's status as an AffectionateParody.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The ending song for the first episode contains the line "Do that thing to that guy. Play that trick on him." The last episode ends with Gerald mentioning how they played that trick on that guy.
** The second episode has Gerald saying "...my physical appearance will one day resemble that of the other handsome students." The sixth episode reveals that the other students are all palette swaps of him, with better hair.
* ForTheEvulz - Supposedly the reason why [[spoiler:Brenda started the Cat-Bun Wars]].
** [[spoiler:According to episode 8, she did this to save Gerald...somehow]].
* FriendToAllLivingThings - Young Man, to some degree.
* HelpfulMook - [[spoiler: Cat Man is the one who tells Gerald how to get to Tuna Mountain.]]
* HeyItsThatVoice - {{MF Doom}} voices Young Man's giraffe friend. There's also a song on his Dangerdoom album named for and about the show.
* AHouseDivided - A few examples:
** Terry/Twisty and Norman Douglass are (much to Gerald's annoyance) constantly fighting with each other.
** Cat Man has no respect for his large haired master, Coiffio (the feeling is mutual).
** None of Young Man's animals seem to listen to anything he says, despite the fact that he is supposed to be the "King of all Animals."
* KaleidoscopeHair: Parodied with Coiffio, who has a [[Manga/DragonBall Super Saiyan-esque]] hairdo that continuously changes colors.
* KilledOffForReal - [[spoiler: Model Robot]]. Considering the wacky and loose nature of the show, however, it is entirely possible that [[spoiler: --he--]] could have been brought back in later episodes had it not been canceled.
* LetsYouAndHimFight - "Enough! Fight now for three minutes!"
* MindScrew - As a parody.
** The last line of the series is Young Man saying "You don't understand. It's a mind*EFF*."
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Cat Man really doesn't give a damn about much of anything, most of all his mook duties.
* MistakenIdentity - Two at once. Astronomic Cat brings Coiffio the severed hand of Young Man, which Coiffio assumes belongs to Gerald. Coiffio then calls Uncle Grandfather to brag about killing his son, only Gerald is his nephew. Or maybe just his student. It's a mind*EFF*.
* NakedApron - Gerald's mom in "Woke Up Drunk"
* NoIndoorVoice: NORMAN DOUGLAS!
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow - Happens to several of the characters, but is always played for laughs.
* OnceAnEpisode - [[SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Space Ghost]] appears in every episode.
* OnlySaneMan - Young Man comes closest to being this when he's not providing needless exposition.
** Catman comes way closer. As early as the second episode, he develops a complete disdain for "all you anime people and your stupid journeys", and does his best to abstain from actively participating in the plot, preferring instead to...hang out at his house, and work at a convenience store. Like a sane person.
* OverlyLongGag - "Sign it."
* PantyShot: Brenda is this trope given flesh. I mean, ''look at it''. Actually, it's pretty impossible to not notice it.
* PerverseSexualLust - Uncle Grandfather.
** [[CargoShip "Can you get this vacuum cleaner to]] [[SoundEffectBleep EFF]] [[CargoShip this cake?"]]
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything - Nearly everyone in the show. Coiffio wants to stop Gerald from getting to Tuna Mountian for unknown reasons, but all he really does is stand around on his ship waiting for someone to buy his old house. Uncle Grandfather at first seems to be TheObiWan, but just sits around getting Brenda to bend over or making vacuum cleaners to [[SoundEffectBleep EFF]] cakes. Young Man... well, we're not sure what he's supposed to be doing, but he mostly just hangs around with a bunch of argumentative animals while telling then that they don't understand. The only person who's actually doing anything is Gerald, who is trying to get to Tuna Mountain.
* PorkyPigPronunciation - Coiffio. "Pwe... Prepware... pwe... pre... prepware....... get weady!"
* PrematurelyBald - Gerald is a teenager with a combover. Just look at the page image.
* PunchClockVillain - Catman works at a convenience store when he is not doing Coiffio's evil bidding. Or rather, when he is not blatantly ignoring Coiffio's evil bidding. Or rather, while he is blatantly ignoring Coiffio's evil bidding.
* QuarterHourShort
* RefugeInAudacity - "Ladies and gentlemen, the inappropriate comedy tree!" "I HAVE SEX WITH DOGS! WHAT'S UP WITH THAT!"
* TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised - The last few episodes were released on the Internet.
** Even in the final episode, the resolution isn't shown, Gerald just walks toward Tuna Mountain, then it cuts to some other scenes, then Gerald is coming back from Tuna Mountain, with perfect hair. He even mentions a bunch of cool adventures they went on that the audience doesn't get to see.
* ShoutOut - Woo, where do we start? In the first three episodes or so we get rapid-fire parodies of ''DragonBall'' and ''DragonBallZ'', ''Franchise/YuGiOh'', ''Anime/SailorMoon''... and ''SpaceGhostCoastToCoast''.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises - Subtle, but Uncle Grandfather just so happens to be holding certain objects between his legs while [[MaleGaze his gaze]] is directed at Brenda, such as a liquor bottle or a banana.
* SoundEffectBleep - Every use of "fuck" is censored with the sound of Coiffio yelling "EFF!"
** Coiffio's bleep sounds like it's run backward. (Could actually be an F bomb played backward. Needs confirmation.)
* {{Stripperiffic}} / MsFanservice - Just ''look'' at Brenda. The skirt part of her sailor fuku ends ''above her waist'', leaving her gorgeous ass clad only in a thong for the entire world to see.
* SurroundedByIdiots - Inverted. All of Coiffio's minions are far more intelligent than him (which still isn't saying much), except for Catman, who is the OnlySaneMan.
* TrendAesop - "Everyone calls me "Retarded Hair Guy"."
* TitleDrop - The first line of the series. "Uncle Grandfather, I want perfect hair forever."
* TransformingMecha: Model Robot. Just don't expect him to finish any time soon (unless he's transforming into an A-Bomb and blowing up in your face.)
* UnexpectedGenreChange - The fifth episode is a motorcycle race. It's handwaved with "You're going to Tuna Mountain? Gonna need motorcycles. Motorcycles. Tuna Mountain."
** And then the sixth episode is a parody of sketch/variety shows, and network tv as a whole.
* VerbalTic - Action Hotdog's "Do the la la la la la...."
* WidgetSeries: The show lampoons these, and then becomes one in itself.
