Funny: Princess Tutu Abridged
- Every time Mytho spouts a random fact. Apparently he watched a lot of Jeopardy!.
- "A pregnant goldfish is called a twit."
Rue: Did you hear something?
Fakir: No, not really.
Mytho: Strawberries have more vitamin C than oranges.
Fakir/Rue: Shut up, Mytho!
- Edel's introduction in Episode 2:
Edel: Sometimes when a man and woman love each other very much, they share a special hug.
Edel: I am Edel. You are naked.
Duck: Naked? Oh sn—
Edel: You'll need these. *hands her clothes*
- Mytho really needs a double cheeseburger right now.
- Fakir and Rue's brief affair in episode 4 can be summarized thusly:
Rue: It's okay if you're a dummy, Mytho. Just as long as you love me.
Mytho: Honey bees are deaf.
Rue: That's right.
Fakir Rue —Mytho go to your room— so you're still seeing Mytho?
Rue: Oh please.
Fakir: Try to stay away from Mytho from now on.
Fakir: So, uh, do you tilt your head left, or do I?
Rue: I think we both tilt left.
Fakir: Your left or my left...?
- "When I think about Rue and Tutu, I get different feelings. When I think about them both at the same time, I get an even different feeling."
- From episode 12 (to the tune of "Anything You Can Do")..."Flashback duck!" "Holy crap!" "Flashback duck!" "I'm a SAP!" "Flashback duck!" "Oh snap, OH SNAP~"
- All together now: SHE'S A MAGICAL BALLERINA PRINCESS WITH A NICE ASS! To the tune of Supercalafragilisticexpialadocius.
- Episode 13 is an absolute goldmine of hilarity.
- The narrator doesn't even know what she's talking about anymore.
"Once Upon a Time
, there was a Rabbit
... which was actually a Swan. There was also a Fox that wanted to eat the swan--rabbit
. So it made a baby swan out of black tar. Brer Swan tried to talk to the Tar Swan, but it would not respond. When Brer Swan touched the tar, she got stuck. The only way to escape the Fox was to go into the briar patch. But swans don't live in briar patches rabbits do. And I am aware that this story makes absolutely no sense."
- Fakir is not happy with Tutu giving in to Kraehe's demands.
"Wait a minute you moron
! What part of Screw Destiny
do you not understand? You have to —and this is a shocker— not do what they tell you
! If you vanish like the story says then I probably get chopped in half
. And I don't know about you but I AM NOT OKAY WITH THAT!"
- This scene, where the characters contemplate the broken Fourth Wall and wonder how Kraehe's outfit stays on.
Kraehe: Tutu, it just seems like every time I try to monologue at you, you start with the whole shouting expletives thing. I mean, seriously, it's getting kind of old. You're a Ballerina Princess, have a little class. Or is Princess Tutu nothing more than a vulgar, man-stealing, ho?
Tutu: Expletive! Interjection!
After all, as the villain in this Fairy Tale
, the easiest way to stop this Tom Foolery was to, well, contact the author himself.
Tutu: I feel a face leak coming on!
Kraehe: You're vibrating eyes aside, Tutu, it seems that Drosselmeyer likes me better. He even rationalized a way for my costume to stay up.
Tutu: I always thought you used double sided tape.
Kraehe: Oh but Fakir, we're just getting warmed up. Don't you want to hear Mytho's theory?
Rhetorical question, darling. No one actually cares what you think. You're not important. After all, I am
holding the essence of your plot relevance right here. Not sure why it took away you're pupils though
- "Oh come on! His sword just turned into a pair of birds. That doesn't make any fucking sense!"
- Fakir's control issues in the early episodes are usually this.
Fakir: Where's Mytho? He went out without my authorization and he must be recaptured.
Duck: You control freak. He's Rue's boyfriend, not yours.
Duck: I didn't—
Fakir: I WILL HUNT HER DOWN!
- Coupled with Mytho's insanity, it becomes absolutely priceless.
Fakir: What's with the look?
Mytho: What look?
Fakir: That look, just now. What were you thinking?
There are forces out there. They're calling for me. They want me for their evil
purposes. They're in our government, in our schools, in our tap water
. Watching. Always watching...
Mytho: When possums are frightened, they become overexcited and pass out.
- Miss Edel's cryptic advice and the way Duck understands them.
Edel: A mighty wind fans flame and makes treetops sway. But flames burn trees to the ground.
Duck: Ah! An extended metaphor! So Mytho fans Fakir and makes Rue sway, but Fakir secretly wants to burn Rue alive!
- Edel will be the first to let you know that she can be your "love puppet".
- Episode 18 begins with Fakir dreaming of fighting and slaying a sexy knight on horseback. In Gratuitous French. Fakir awakens with the most appropriate response: "What... the fuck?"
- The Brick Joke in Episode 21 and 24.
Rue: Prince, are you hungry?
Mytho: Yes, I am hungry. *begins to eat a rat*
I made you a FUCKING
- Also episode 24.
(over the entire Tear Jerker
Rue/Mytho dance) That went well.
- Episode 25 while Drosselmeyer's is forcing Fakir to write.
Drosselmeyer: That was the lake called Despair. It was dark and deep, just like Duck's eyes.
Fakir: That's a terrible line.
Later at the Lake of Despair.
Fakir: Wow. It does look like Duck's eyes.
- Also in episode 25.
Fakir: I am your great-great-great-great grandson, and you tried to kill me!
Drosselmeyer: Oh, I am so much greater than that.
