A Canadian animated television series created by Simon Racioppa and Richard Elliott for Creator/{{Nelvana}} and Creator/{{Teletoon}}. It can be seen on Creator/{{Qubo}} and on the Creator/CartoonNetwork website in the United States, Creator/DisneyXD in Mexico, Brazil & Spain, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} in Sweden and Norway, Creator/{{ABC3}} in Australia, Creator/{{Nicktoons}} in UK & Ireland, and Teletoon in Canada.

Once upon a time, there once lived a MadScientist who spent his weary days on a secluded island in the middle of the Pacific. To occupy his time, he creates biological abominations that stood against all notions of sanity and common sense. But sadly, it was only a matter of time until the judicial system caught whiff of the whole situation and arrested him for crimes against nature and "good taste". With their master forever gone from their lives, the mutants, with only limited knowledge of the outside world and their customs, are left to construct a civilization of their own. Of course, this leads to [[HilarityEnsues ensuing hilarity.]]

[[JustForFun/IReadThatAs Not to be confused with]] ''Film/{{Splice}}.''

Check out the [[Recap/{{Spliced}} episode guide]].


!!''Spliced'' provides examples of:

* ADayInTheLimelight: Princess Pony Apehands in "No Play for Princess" and "Fairly Odd Princesses"; Smarty Smarts in "Outsmartered" and "Come to the Dork Side"; Joe in "Two Arms Joe", "Stompabout", "There Will Be Stomp", and "Same Difference"; Patricia in "Honorary Freak", "Marzipan Meadows and the Kingdom of Adventure", and "Living Hellp"; Compuhorse in "Cube Whacked"; Fuzzy in "Fuzzy's Great Journey" and "Sgt. Snuggums"; The Wunny Sharbit in "My Fair Sharkbunny"; Octocat in "Octocataclysm" and "Of Masters and Minions"; and Lord Wingus Eternum in "One-Joe Wingus".
* AllJustADream: The episode ''Mo' Mayo Mo' Problems'', which then turned into a DreamWithinADream.
* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: Parodied with the "Knowing is Growing" shorts, which deals with incredibly common problems and misconceptions, such as samurai pet care, time travel, and even snorting up antelopes. We all know you've done the last one sometime in your life.
* AnimalGenderBender: Entrée. He is a male yet has a pair of udders. He also lays eggs and has a rooster comb, which confounds the issue further.
* ArtShift
** A very discreet example. Any episodes that gives Lord Wingus Eternum a speaking role give him a more detailed look (i.e: more frayed hair, longer beak, and eyes in a half-lidded expression). The source picture for this page shows how Wingus looks when he's silent/just there. [[http://i329.photobucket.com/albums/l400/dany098/LordWingusEternus.jpg And when he speaks...]]
** The animation briefly switches over to stop-motion in the beginning of "Poosh and the Quest for the Blargy Parble".
* AssShove: Fuzzy accidentally crawls up Entrée's ass in "Brothers in Farms".
* BelligerentSexualTension: Mister Smarty Smarts and Octocat's relationship, which is thoroughly shown in the episodes "Octocataclysm", and "Of Masters and Minions".
* BodyHorror: Often, but having your spine sucked viciously from your body by a baby robot comes to mind as a particularly cringe-worthy one.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs
-->'''Patricia''': Do I smell monkey on fire?
-->'''Joe''': No, smells more like charred dolphin.
-->(Smarty-Smarts jumps in wearing lava pants)
-->'''Patricia''': What do you know? We were both right.
* BreakingTheFourthWall
** Peri in "Bowled Over": "But when I realized I was narrating, I knew it was time to take a break." He even tries to speak to Entrée in his InnerMonologue before correcting himself.
** Several of the IdiosyncraticWipes address the audience.
* BrickJoke
** In "Gordon", Entree replaces a car's engine with the brain of one of Smarty Smarts' robots, and then puts a sandwich in place of the brain. The episode then ends with a trailer for a horror movie about "The Robot with a Sandwich for a Brain!". Later in "Honorary Freak", Entree steals Smarty Smarts' brain scanning machine and replaces it with a sandwich, prompting Smarty Smarts to ask "Again? Who keeps doing that?"
** The boxers Peri and Entree stole from the Doctor's lab in "Stomach On Stike". Entree told Peri the boxers didn't fit him, and was interrupted before he could tell him the whereabouts of it. About a minute later, when Entree's stomach climbs out of his body, it barfs out the muffins Entree was trying to digest, and a pair of boxers.
* BrownNote: Lord Wingus Eternum is more of a [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith Name You Are Comfortable With]], as his real name would "[[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom begin with a dawn, end with the moon, and ravage your mind like a nightmare]]".
* BuffySpeak: "Look, a thingy thing thing!"
* CaffeineBulletTime: Peri experiences this as a result of consuming huge amounts of sugar in "Sugar Low".
* CallingYourAttacks
** Two-legs Joe. THUNDER STOMP! TELEPORT STOMP!! QUANTUM STOMP!!! REGURGA-STOMP!!!! The intermission wipes even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] about this and noted on how absurd it could get.
** Smarty-Smarts when he had his Mechanical Stomping Legs. "RAINBOW FISHY STOMP!!!"
* TheCanKickedHim: In "Pink", a mole-ster pretending to be Entree's conscience (ItMakesSenseInContext) hits Entree over the head with a toilet hard enough to shatter the toilet.
* CatchPhrase: Fuzzy's "Huzzah!" and "Expedition note!", Joe's exclamations of "Horns above!" and "Sweet mercy!", and Entrée's "May-O-NAAAAAAISE!"
* CompressedVice: Impressively subverted with Peri's bowling skills. They form the plot of the first episode, then are never mentioned again. Then, they finally come back at the ''very end'' of the ''very last episode'', where Peri tries to get the mythical Blargy Parble from a robot, but loses in direct combat, but the robot, due to its robotic pride, challenges Peri to a bowling game, which Peri wins, thus allowing him to get the Blargy Parble.
* ContinuityNod / CallBack: Despite NegativeContinuity being in full effect (especially when the episode ends with the island being destroyed), some things remain the same for one episode to another. For example, Entrée's udder teets still have the same names from episode to episode (although which one is which may vary).
* ConvectionSchmonvection
** The episode "Livin' La Vida Lava". The entire town ends up using lava as if it were a public utility.
** And in "Bowled Over", Peri pulls a bowling ball out of the top of a volcano.
* CoveredInKisses: Two-legs Joe, thanks to Entrée's heart in "Stomach on Strike".
* CreatingLifeIsUnforeseen: PlayedForLaughs in the episode "Bowled Over". Peri makes a sandwich, which then randomly grows insect-like legs and wings and begins attacking people. Later, he attempts to fix Patricia's car, but he ends up giving it sentience instead. Also in the episode "Living Hellp", Entree attempts to microwave a microwave, which results in the microwave coming to life and attacking him.
* CrypticBackgroundReference: The Blargy Parble, which we never get to see.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Entrée and Peri. The former can fly, teleport, mind-control people, and [[Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} summon sea creatures to do his bidding.]] The latter can shapeshift, detach his limbs, and turn people into his slaves with butterfly wings.
* DidYouDie: A variation is used in the episode ''One Joe Wingus'':
--> '''Wingus''': I was offered a choice. Remove you [Two Legs Joe], or be banished.
--> '''Entrée''': So what'cha do? Did you pull'em off?
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In the episode "Pink", Peri wakes up one day and finds out that he has turned the color pink (instead of his usual orange), and Entrée does not want to be his friend anymore because of this. The metaphor is heightened by the fact that Entrée thinks that being around Peri will turn him pink, and indeed has a nightmare in which this happens.
-->'''Entrée:''' Hey Peri? [[HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster Have you tried being Orange again?]]
* {{Egopolis}}: The town on the island has this for the Doctor to an extent.
* EpicFail: Peri tries to paint Two-Legs' house and it catches on fire.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: {{Parodied}} and combined with CargoShip in "Helen", where Patricia admires the title [[spoiler: pancake, and eats "her"]].
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks and KillerRabbit: The Wunny Sharbit: part rabbit, part shark, part chainsaw, all killer.
* EyeScream
** In both of the first two episodes, Entrée gets a foreign object in the eye: a wrench in "Bowled Over" and a book in "Stuck Together".
** Also the chair that [[Film/AClockworkOrange holds their eyes open]]. Interestingly though, while meant to be a torture device, Peri applies the holders to ''himself'', thinking they're for convenience.
---> '''Peri''': "This is great! I hate it when I blink during movies."
* FantasticAesop: The "Knowing is Growing" shorts, which have included [[AnAesop aesops]] like 'don't put antelopes up your nose', 'gravy isn't a vegetable; it's a fruit', and 'don't adopt samurai as pets'.
* FurIsClothing: In "Bowled Over", Peri pulls back his fur to reveal a tattoo.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Literally in the theme song. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD_uQrhxg4s Listen at 0:09]]. (It was made in Canada, after all). The example is also in the page quote. [[note]] Please note that it could also be "that/grabbed" as well. [[/note]]
** Also in the episode ''Two Arms Joe'' after Peri gives Two Legs Joe his arms for the day:
-->'''Entrée:''' Have fun, [[ADateWithRosiePalms but not too much fun]].
** In "Stupid Means Never Having to Say I'm Sorry", Peri, in a delusional state while being stranded on a marooned island, [[CompanionCube befriends a tire]] who both do quite a questionable act at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DxQMCyZjNc 6:47]]:
-->'''Peri:''' I keep telling you Retread! I lead, you FOLLOW!
** There's also the title of the episode "Living Hellp". Yes, it was spelt with two l's and everything.
** The title of the episode "Mole-sters in the Mist". No joke. That's the title. Try reading the title without the hyphen.
** In the episode "The Count of Pinchy Craboo", Peri and Entree try to get away from a wunny sharbit, and Entree ends up throwing stuff at it in order to hold it off. After Peri asks Entree if he can do anything else to stop it, he replies with "I don't know, I'm all out of crap!"
* GonkyFemme: Princess Pony Apehands is indeed, a [[AllGirlsLikePonies pony]] crossed with a gorilla, and while she acts like a young girl most of the time, can become very aggressive when annoyed.
* GrossoutShow: It's not really as gross as you'd expect it to be, but there has been some instances where you get to see miles of snot, exposed brains, the sounds of stretched limbs slowly tearing apart, and the occasional inside-out bodies.
* TheHatMakesTheMan: In "Follow Your Dreamworms", Entree snatches Joe's top hat and replaces it with a flowery sunhat. Joe's normally angry voice immediately becomes much more girly and singsong.
* IdiosyncraticWipes: The show's main [[RunningGag running gag]], which is often accompanied with random sound effects for laughs.
* ImpactSilhouette: Several times. How Joe found out who stole his pretzel-maker. [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] when the hole Entree cuts open with a laser sword is shaped just like himself.
* InMediasRes: "Octocataclysm." Lampshaded when Peri tries to explain the concept to Entrée.
* InstantExpert: Peri and Entrée find a learning helmet that lets them instantly [[PowersAsPrograms download]] and master a large number of skills, with a [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity recurring side effect]].
* ItTastesLikeFeet: Entrée says this after attempting to eat Two-legs Joe.
* KillSat: Octocat controls one.
* LampshadeHanging: In one episode, when Peri and Entrée are trapped between the volcano and the MonsterOfTheWeek, we get:
-->'''Peri:''' This happens to us a lot.
* LostLoveMontage: Mr Smarty-Smart's experiences on after Octo-Cat leaves him "Of Masters and Minions". Of course, all of the scenes involve him and Octo-Cat attempting to conquer Keepaway Island.
* LustfulMelt: Patricia in "Amazon", when she first sees Eduardo.
* MakeoverMontage: Wunny Sharbit gets one.
--> '''Wunny''': "Oh dude...please no."
* MediumBlending: Happens in several episodes, including "Pork Chop", "Bowled Over", "No Play for Princess", "Two Arms Joe", and "Poosh and the Quest for the Blargy Parble".
* MissionImpossibleCableDrop: Entrée performs one while stealing Joe's hat in the episode "Follow Your Dreamworms".
* MixAndMatchCritters: Pretty much all of the main cast.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: The Wunny Sharbit. It is part shark and chainsaw, after all.
* MundaneFantastic: It's a show about an island full of talking mutant MixAndMatchCritters created by a MadScientist. This is treated as entirely normal.
* NonSequiturThud: Entrée does it in "Amazon".
-->'''Entrée:''' Hey guy, have you seen our red fire truck?
* NoodleIncident: In "No Play for Princess", Joe reminds Peri and Entrée about what happened the last time they played Bucket Stick Fruitball. We don't get the specifics, but it apparently involved a flight of planes crashing into a bridge, a car going off a ledge, a giant lizard, and [[{{ArsonMurderAndJaywalking}} dancing.]]
* NotSoDifferent: In the episode "Same Difference" Two Legs Joe and Mister Smarty Smarts develop a friendship over their mutual dislike of Peri and Entrée (though Mister Smarty Smarts downright despises them, while Joe just finds them annoying).
* OffModel: Even though this is usually done intentionally to express the character's emotions in a very creative manner, the animation crew has tendencies to either animate them extensively with brilliant results, or make it look like a four-year-old could've done it. Quite rare for an UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash show from Canada.
* OrganAutonomy: Entrée once made a bet with his brain, heart and stomach that he could survive a week without them. They went off and had adventures of their own for the week.
* OverlyLongTongue
** "Stuck Together" shows Peri to have one so long that he can use it to walk on.
** Entrée has a very long tongue in "Yetis Don't Care About Nothin".
* PetTheDog: More like pet the Octocat for Mister Smarty Smarts.
* {{Planimal}}: The Swineapple. It's part pig, part pineapple.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: "My name is Peri and I! AM! A BOWLER!"
* RecycledINSPACE: It's WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants ON AN ISLAND FULL OF MUTANTS!
* RelaxOVision: Used in the episode "Pork Chop", where Entree goes apeshit on everybody after obtaining Kung-Fu powers.
-->'''Narrator:''' To avoid damage to young minds, we've been ordered to replace this fight scene with happy puppies!
* SanityBall: Passed between Peri and Patricia, mainly, though almost everyone except [[TheDitz Entree]] gets a turn with it.
* ShoutOut
** How Entrée sees the Wunny Sharbit in the episode "Cleaning Up" wears a [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Goaltender mask.]] Interestingly, that depiction of Wunny is in the theme song, despite it not actually existing.
** In the episode "Nightmare On Condemned Street" Entrée says [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 "I have the power!"]] Peri says the same line in "Bowled Over".
** In "Nightmare On Condemned Street" Entrée says "[[StarWars Do or do not.]]"
** In "Come to the Dork Side", Mr. Smarty Smarts tries to get Peri to join his cause, by [[Film/AClockworkOrange strapping him to an electrical chair, forcing him to watch violent scenes, preventing him from blinking,]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and washing his brain with shampoo]]. It doesn't work.
** In "Same Difference", one clip in Smarty-Smarts and Joe's montage shows the both of them watching WesternAnimation/{{Grossology}}, which was created by the same people. The ''Grossology'' theme can also be heard in the episode "Yetis Don't Care About Nothin"
** One of Entrée's udders is the cane wielding [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Cranky.]]
** The original VideoGame/DonkeyKong games in "Octocataclysm".
** PacMan in "Honorary Freak".
** To the game Breakout in ''Cube Whacked''.
** In "Pork Chop" Entrée says [[AWinnerIsYou "A winner is me"]] from the NES game ''VideoGame/ProWrestling''.
** ''Peri's Rainbow'' is to ''The Red Balloon''.
** Kilroy, the famous graffiti man, appears in ''Follow your Dreamworms''.
** Mr. Smarty does the [[Series/TheKidsInTheHall head crushing thing]] in two episodes.
** Compu-Peri's outfit was very reminiscent of ''Film/{{Tron}}''.
** There's a [[Film/JamesBond Bond-esque]] laser scene in ''Of Masters and Minions''...only it works.
** Same episode, Mr. Smarty holds a radio over his head like in ''Film/SayAnything''.
** In ''Nightmare on Condemned Street'', Mr. Smarty can be seen wearing a [[Film/TheFabulousBakerBoys Suzie Diamond]] style dress and slinking seductively towards Peri, Entree and Fuzzy in one of the dream visitations. The ensuing flee was quite understandable ([[spoiler: Suzie Diamond is a porn star]]).
** The "Knowing is Growing" segments are rather like those "The More You Know" ones.
** Patricia's mother computer acts an awful lot like [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL]] and/or [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]].
** ''The Count of Pinchy Crabbo'' is a whole plot reference to ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo''.
** The board game Clue appears in a whirrel's intestines as a clue to the Blargy Parble.
** The title card to the episode ''One Joe Wingus'' is a clear shout out to the [[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Pixar short]] ''For the Birds''.
** Calcu-Pony makes fun of the ridiculously stupid early generations of MyLittlePony.
** "You got computer in my horse! You got horse in my computer!" from "Two Arms Joe" is a reference to 70's Reese's commercials.
* SlowMotionDrop: Entrée does this with a mayonnaise jar in "Stuck Together".
* SlowNo: Two-Legs Joe does one when Peri uses his bowling ball to fix his house.
* SnapBack: In "Walkie-Talkie Spinie-Suckie", basically everyone except Peri, Entree, and Octocat permanently lose their spines in a volcano, "Clones Don't Care 'Bout Nothin' Either" had the entire island engulfed with deformed clones of Peri and Entree, "Sgt. Snuggums" had a overpowered and deranged Octocat bombing the island with Fuzzy's rocket, "Bite, Shuffle, and Moan" had everyone except Peri being infected by zombies, "Two-Arms Joe" had Peri losing his arm and Joe giving him a giant robotic one, "Pork Chop" had Entree getting the ability to walk removed from his brain, "Whirrel Call" had Entree falling to his death and then having his brain fly out of his head and getting crushed by a boulder, and "Mole-sters In the Mist" had the entire shrunken town being enslaved by overgrown mole-sters.
* SpoonBending: Inverted when Entree attempts to twist a utensil, but ends up twisting everything around but it. Peri counts the test as a fail.
* StockFootage: Used repeatedly, mostly in the form of black-and-white, public domain movie footage.
* StraightMan: Patricia usually acts like this for Peri, Entree, and Joe, but Peri fills in whenever she's not around. Also, Octocat acts like this for Smarty-Smarts.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: In one episode, when Peri and Entree are about to fall, Peri reminds Entree he has chicken wings, but Entree objects because chickens live underwater. Then, at the end of the episode:
--> '''Peri''': He'll be fine. He has chicken wings.\\
'''Mr. Smarty Smarts''': But don't chickens live underwater?
* TimeFreezeTrollingSpree: Inverted and PlayedForLaughs. When Peri gets a [[CaffeineBulletTime sugar rush]] he starts moving at SuperSpeed so to him it look like everyone is frozen in time. He then spends his time doing good deeds to everyone, thinking they'll be appreciative and throw him a parade, except when he returns to normal time, nobody believes he was the one who did everything.
* TitleDrop: In "Stuck Together", Entrée [[spoiler:fuses Peri to his body and says, "Oh, you know, I just spliced us together with one of the doctor's machines!"]]
* ToothbrushFloorScrubbing: In "Of Masters and Minions", Mr Smarty-Smarts new robotic minion makes him clean the lair with a toothbrush. He is so scared of her that when the toothbrush breaks, he starts using his tongue.
* TorchesAndPitchforks: Standard riot supplies on Keepaway Island. They even keep a flaming torch in a 'break glass in case of emergency' style glass case.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Entrée loves mayonaise.
* UnfortunateNames: The mole-sters, mole/hamster mutants that inhabit the island.
* VerbedTitle: Named for the spliced together animals of the cast.
* VillainsOutShopping: In a second-hand revelation of this, it turns out the Mad Doctor was quite the avid bowler.
* WheelOFeet: This shows up quite a bit. In Entrée's case, Wheel o' Udder Teats.
