Awesome Fridge Funny Heartwarming Laconic Main Trivia WMG WebAnimation YMMV
are a series of short,
surreal YouTube web cartoons
, partially adapting strips from

The short skits mean that knowing what's in them will spoil the (what can loosely be called) gags very easily, so
we recommend you watch the movies before reading the trope list
. It won't take long.
This series provides examples of: Action Bomb: The Mine Turtle. Actually, I Am Him: "I am your sandwich." All Women Love Shoes: Even when they are chairs, women love shoes. Ambiguously Gay: The ducks in the fifth movie.
just about to say that! "We are so in sync!" Animate Inanimate Object: While it's never shown to move, the chair in the fourth movie can talk. It is female, by the way. Also the evil tie and parking meter from the first movie. Not to mention the door from the sixth movie. Animation Bump: In the "I Like Trains" video: " I FEEL GREAT!" Anthropomorphic Food: The potato. There's also a cake in the first episode, who a guy cuts, but is unaware that the cake is alive. The cake then dies from its wounds and falls off the table. In the sixth episode, there is a burger that announces that it used to be a cow. In the seventh episode, a muffin who tries to get someone to eat him. Anti Humour: The Pointless Button scene. Apocalypse How: A deleted scene has a guy spilling a glass of milk. Somehow, the average-sized glass was able to hold enough milk to drown everyone. April Fools' Day: The twenty minute movie was made and released two days before this day. Armies Are Evil: The military in the sixth movie shoots down a magical flying pony for no reason other than being evil. Art Shift: Most of the backstory in the Mine Turtle song is drawn in a much different style. And then in asdfmovie 7, the second to last gag becomes colored (and naked) and the character freaks out. The last gag also sets up for a joke of its own, but is interrupted by the characters noticing the colors (and nakedness) and freaking out as well. Continuity Nod: Instead of playing off prior asdfmovie skits like the rest of the song, it refers to another TomSka video, done in a different style. Ax-Crazy: People fire off guns, attack each other and summon random large objects with complete abandon. Badass Adorable: The Mine Turtle. Cute as a button, but will blow you up if you step on him. Bait and Switch: A guy is asked to hold a live bomb. The guy who gave him the bomb comes back a few seconds later and takes it back. No explosion, next skit. Look closely and you'll notice the fuse gets longer at the end. "This is a robbery." *dramatic sting and close-up* *hangs up and walks away*. Next skit. "WARNING POINTLESS BUTTON" is pointless. Bears Are Bad News: Invoked in the sixth movie. Averted with Desmond, the moon bear. Be Careful What You Wish For: From number four, both the boy who wants to be a pie and the girl who wants to go to the moon. And the time-traveler, who gets stepped on by a " Stegosaurus" upon arrival. Better to Die than Be Killed: The trumpeter in the sixth movie. Big "NO!": "No, llama, NOOOOOO!" "Die Potato!" "Nooooooooooooo!" "Billy, nooo!!!" " I AM PUNCHING YOUR SALAD!" "NOOOOOOOOO-" " Oh, NOOOOO--" is quite apropriate just before punching yourself in the face because it's Opposite Day. "I'm going to punch your face... in the face." "NOOOO—(zoom to face within face)—OOOOO!" Black Comedy: has a lot more of this in comparison to the previous six. ASDF Movie 7 The Blank: : ASDF Movie 4 "Well, I stole your face!" Blatant Lies: The puppy in six.
"Oh, careful, honey; he [the dog] has a knife!"
"What? No, no I don't..." Blessed with Suck: Tree powers, activate! Bloody Hilarious: Especially when a character gets shot in the face. Almost everything is in black and white, even flames, but blood is made red anyway. Boom, Headshot: "Hey guys, check out my new camera! Oh, wait, this isn't a camera." Breakout Character: Following his debut in the second movie, the "I Like Trains" kid was apparently liked enough to show up in the third movie as well as in Lil Deuce Deuce's music video and star in the "I Like Trains" music video. Brick Joke: "I like trains." In the fourth movie: the newspaper headline says the potato died. In the third movie, a guy named Joey climbs into a friend's mouth. In the fourth movie, he crawls out. In the second movie, a driving llama falls off a cliff. In the fifth movie, it lands on someone. In the fourth movie, a piano lands on someone. In the fifth movie, someone lands on a piano. In the fifth movie, a kid wonders if his pony can fly, which it does. In the sixth movie, the pony is spotted and shot down by some gunmen. In the second movie, Desmond the Moonbear is questioning why he's on the moon. In the seventh He succumbed to the uninhabitable surface on the moon. Call Back: All over the place in the Mine Turtle music video. The "Stegosaurus" returns in the deleted scenes. The Cameo: Carnivore Confusion: Inverted. The muffin from episode 7 wants to be eaten, but none of the people he meets want to eat him. Centipede's Dilemma: One man is told to not think about cats. He immediately begins spewing cats from his mouth. Character Level: *punches a random guy in the face* LEVEL UP! Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: The Breakout Character "I Like Trains" kid disappears after the third movie. Enforced, as his voice actor Edd Gould passed away, and presumably The Character Died with Him. The potato from the "Die Potato" skits, a recurring skit in the first 3 movies, is absent from the fourth movie onward. Killed Off for Real: If you look closely at the newspaper the man's reading in the fourth movie, the headline story reads "Potato Found Dead". Meaning someone finally did kill him. Cloudcuckooland: All of the characters are absolutely insane. Comedic Sociopathy Continuity Cavalcade: The Mine Turtle song. Cool Shades: The potato in the second movie, as well as the "I Like Trains" kid in the I Like Trains song. Creator Cameo: Twice in Mine Turtle: two versions of Ridgewell appear - his Eddsworld Author Avatar (as a sphinx in one of turtle's photos) and the "realistic" version, which created the first Mine Turtle. Creepy Child: The "I Like Trains" kid. Cuteness Overload: "I'm allergic to adorableness!" Dance Sensation: "Everybody do the FLOP!" (thud) A ten-minute video was made out of this two-second gag. Then there was a fan-made "Real Life" version. Darker and Edgier: asdfmovie 7 has much more dark humor than the previous entries. Doesn't stop it from being over-the-top and silly though. Death Seeker: The muffin in asdfmovie 7. And he looks so happy about it! Department of Redundancy Department: "POINTLESS BUTTON: Warning, pointless" Depth Deception: In asdfmovie 4, that kid trying to grab a ball thrown at him isn't standing far away. He's just really small. And gets squished under the ball. Disproportionate Retribution: "Now, son, don't touch that cactus!" *kid levitates and attaches himself to the cactus* "YOU'RE DEAD TO ME." "Honey, why is the baby on fire?" "BUY ME MORE JEWELRY!" "BANANA FIGHT!" (gunshot) "NO!" "Do you know who's gay? You." (stabbed in the chest) "Aw, come on!" "Do you know who's gay? Y— *Hit by a train* "Nice hat." "Thanks!" "I was being sarcastic." "Well, I stole your face!" *Man grabs his face to find out it is indeed gone* Inverted: "ALIEN ATTACK!!!" "Throw the CHEEEEEESE!!!!!" "Hey, it says 'Gullible' on the ceiling." "... Oh, so it doe— Aww, ye stole my lungs." "Got your nose!" *Door kicked down* "LOOK OUT!!! HES GOT A NOSE!!!!" *Bangbangbangbangbang* Dissonant Serenity: In the deleted scenes, the guy turning the jack-in-the-box…in the middle of a murder scene with several bloody corpses strewn about. Don't Try This at Home: At the end of the Ritalin'd movie. Driven to Suicide: "Goodbye, world." Genius Loci: "Okay Jim, I'll see you around. Where you go-OH, OH NO! Aw, that's not what I thought he meant by that at all!" The cake in the first one throws himself off of the table in front of his 2 little cupcakes. "Quick, shoot me in the face!" *headshot* "You'll never take me alive!", trumpet sound Every second skit in asdfmovie7 is related to suicide in some way. Dull Surprise: Two guys standing around. One guy crawls out of someone from the previous movie, with another guy watching. Other guy: "Oh." A guy walks off a ledge only to fall upward... Guy: Oh, okay. Yet another guy wonders whether his pony can fly. It can. Guy: Huh. Edible Ammunition: " THROW THE '" it doesn't work. CHEEESSSE!!! Earlier in the video, one guy declares a "banana fight" before being shot in the head. Everything's Better With Dinosa- *stomped* "I AM A STEG-O-SAURUS~" This particular skit is repeated in the Mine Turtle music video, resulting in the "Stegosaurus" being blown up by the Mine Turtle. Then a whole army of Mine Turtles comes out of the time machine, leading to a hilarious instance of Phlebotinum Killed the Dinosaurs. Everythings Better With Llamas: Though trying to teach one to drive may not be the best of ideas... Everything's Better with Rainbows: "Doctor, I think I might be a homosexual." "How can you tell?" " RAAAINBOOOOOWS" "Doing an internet" makes a rainbow come out of your computer. The trains in "I Like Trains" produce rainbows. Evil Laugh: From the evil tie. Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The Pointless Button. Eye Scream: In 6, a man is told carrots are good for one's eyesight. He jams carrots into his eyes. Facepalm: More like no-face palm. Failed a Spot Check: "Hey, guys, check out my new camera." *headshot* "Oh, wait, this isn't a camera." Finger Gun: This is how the kid in the fourth movie mugs the mugger. Flying Saucer: Which gets cheese thrown at it. Follow the Leader: asdf in Real Life, asdf in LEGO, asdf in Minecraft, asdf in Happy Wheels, asdf in MW 3, asdf in Black Ops 2. All of them play the audio of one or multiple of the asdf videos and attempt to get them to look as close to possible as the original. They meet with varying degrees of success. It got a point where they made a website with all the best remakes and remixes of the various videos and spin-offs. Freeze-Frame Bonus: In the trailer for the fifth movie, Tom's dog's dog tag briefly shows the face of the "I Like Trains" kid before switching to "TOM'S DOG" In the third movie's skit with the bomb, the fuse goes back to its original height for a single frame at the end, though this is most likely just a Blooper (as it doesn't seem to happen in the Newgrounds version). In the 5th movie, right before the car lands on the guy next to Mine Turtle, you can see a smile on his face for a SPLIT second. The guys who do the flop frown as they fall to the ground. French Jerk: He won't run out of muffins. He works at the muffin factory. Genius Loci: The Earth in asdfmovie3, the Moon in asdfmovie5, Saturn and the Sun in asdfmovie7, and the Sun again in the deleted scenes. Genre Savvy: Two skits involving the Mine Turtle exploding later, the guy in the third is smart enough not to step on it. It doesn't save him. Giant Foot of Stomping: Courtesy of the " Stegosaurus." Gratuitous German: The forth movie was made in German... on an English only channel just because. Gross-Up Close-Up: Two in the third one, namely "I AM PUNCHING YOUR SALAD!" and "YOU'RE DEAD TO ME!". Plus one more at the beginning of the sixth one. Hey, It's That Voice!: The videos often feature guest voice actors from other popular Youtube channels. Hoist by His Own Petard: Hilarious combination of and Opposite Day Big "NO!" in the fifth movie. I Fell for Hours: The driving llama from asdfmovie 2 had been falling for years before showing up in #5. I Have a Family: "AHHH! Why would you do this? I have a wife and family!" I Have No Son: "Now, son, don't touch that cactus." *son levitates and attaches himself to the cactus* ''YOU'RE DEAD TO ME." Implausible Deniability: A talking dog claims that he isn't holding a knife. Said knife Sticks to the Back and is not covered in any way. Bonus points for the dog being a Bad Liar. Impossible Thief: "I stole your face!" "Aww, ye stole my lungs." Improbable Weapon User: THROW THE CHEEEEEEEESE! Infant Immortality: Seemingly averted: "Honey, why is the baby on fire?" but actually played straight in that the baby suffers no ill effects and actually smiles whilst still being on fire. No One Could Survive That: Some kids seem indestructible; to wit the "I Like Trains" kid and his assumed Spiritual Successor the airplane baby. (Then again, they could be asdf's version of Kenny.) Averted with the girl drawing a bear... on a real bear. (CHOMP) The girl who jaywalks. Is There a Doctor in the House?: In the sixth movie, when a guy standing beside someone lying on the ground and choking: Guy: Is anybody here a doctor? Doctor: I am! Guy: Well you're a nerd! It Only Works Once: Throwing cheese at a Flying Saucer causes an explosion in the twenty minute movie but has no noticeable effect in the fourth movie. Knock Knock Joke: Door: Knock Knock! Guy: Who's there? *whack*! Door: The door! Mine Turtle Goes Click: "Hello! :D" * BOOM!* The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Girl: I like singing! Boy: I like dancing! "I Like Trains" kid: I like trains. Let's Meet the Meat: From asdfmovie6: Off-screen voice: Hello, burger! Burger: I used to be a cow! Off-screen voice: Oh. Non-meat example in 7, but it's still a suicidal muffin asking to be eaten. Literal Genie: The twenty minute movie provides a meta-example, as rather than being 20 minutes long, it was made in 20 minutes — the commenter who inspired it said to make one for 20 minutes, after all. Literal-Minded: One character is told carrots are good for one's eyesight. He tries to test it by jamming two large carrots into his eye-sockets. Another asks if the other wants them to take "it" outside. They do. One guy tells another to turn his frown upside-down. He does… along with the rest of his head. But he was smiling when he did that, so… Made of Explodium: The Mine Turtle. Made of Plasticine: Invisible Billy is sliced by a mere frisbee. Makes Just as Much Sense in Context: "I AM PUNCHING YOUR SALAD!" Baby On Fire "Marmite, why does no one like you?" *guy catches fire* "Oh yeah." Moment Killer: The Moon in the fifth movie. Mood Whiplash: "I'm allergic to adorableness!" *Kitten lands on face* "Awwwwww." *Cut to his tombstone* Mugging the Monster: In the fourth movie.
"You're getting mugged, kid."
"No, you're getting mugged." My God, What Have I Done?: The cake segment. Complete with a Big "NO!" at the end. Naked People Are Funny: An Art Shift gag in 7 reveals every single person so far has been naked this whole time, the monochromatic art style just didn't make it obvious. Neck Snap: One character tells another to turn their frown upside down. They do. In another video, two characters try to hold an intervention for Larry, who keeps doing this to people without realizing it. It doesn't work. Never Learned to Read: "Ahaha, I can't read." Nice Hat: "Thanks." "I was being sarcastic." "Well I stole your face." Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In the seventh movie, when some people are trying to stop somebody from jumping off the building, the flop guy from the sixth movie comes in and does his dance. Everybody flops… including the one from the building. No Name Given: There usually isn't enough time. Non-Standard Character Design: Marmite. Obliviously Evil: Larry, who keeps breaking people's necks, and doesn't even know he's doing it. Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Played with. "And now: the funniest thing you've ever seen from really far away." Opposite Day: In the fifth movie. Organ Theft: Lungs, specifically and a face in the fourth movie. Orphaned Punchline: The funniest thing you've ever seen, from really far away. The first line is almost impossible to hear properly, the rest of it is much clearer.
"Apples!" Phlebotinum Killed the Dinosaurs: Played for Laughs in the Mine Turtle music video; see Everything's Better with Dinosaurs. Piano Drop: "Whose idea was this?!" Pokémon Speak: The "I Like Trains" kid usually only ever says... well, guess. Properly Paranoid: "My tie is evil and it's going to kill meeeeeeee..." Rail Enthusiast: The "I Like Trains" kid. Reactive Continuous Scream: "AHHHHHH!" "AHHHH!" Reality Ensues: Desmond the Moon Bear is seen again in episode 7. He's dead. No air on the moon, you know. In the fourth episode, aliens attack. A onlooker heroically yells, "Throw! The! CHEESE!" He throws a ton of cheese... and it all just bounces off the spaceship. Recursive Reality: "I'm gonna punch your face... in the face!" "I got you a pie!" "Oh boy! What flavour!" "PIE FLAVOUR." Ridiculously Cute Critter: The Mine Turtle. Running Gag: "Die, potato!" Schmuck Bait: The "Pointless Button". It does absolutely nothing. The Scottish Trope / Speak of the Devil: "I like trains." "Piano!" * Piano Drop* "Whose idea was this?!" Shaped Like Itself: "PIE FLAVOUR!!!" "I'm gonna punch your face! IN THE FACE." The victim turns out to have a tiny face on his face. Shipper on Deck: The Moon in asdfmovie 5. Slapstick Knows no Gender: "When I grow up I want to go to the moon!" Many of asdfmovie 7's gags involve women and death. Something Completely Different: "And now, Ducks." Somewhere, a Paleontologist Is Crying: Parodied by the sauropod who calls himself a Stegosaurus. Spiritual Successor: To the videos Eddsworld , Tom's Tales Of Awesome , and Edd's tales of Boredom . Tom even admitted it on Tom's Tales of Brilliance Eddsworld's twitter. Splash Of Colour: Apart from blood, rainbows, and Marmite, and the Evil Tie flash, everything is black and white. Spontaneous Choreography: "Everybody do The Flop!" Standard '50s Father: The "I Like Trains" kid has one. Apparently so does the little girl in the sixth movie. Stealth Pun: In the sixth film, the kid doesn't say it, but he likes planes. The Stinger: "You ever get tired of being random?" * Beat* "Me neither." Stuff Blowing Up: All over the Mine Turtle music video. Justified because, you know, Mine Turtles. Stupid Statement Dance Mix: Everybody do the flop! Stylistic Suck: The Ritalin'd and twenty minute movies. Subverted Trope: A lot of the humor is derived by doing the complete opposite/something different than what you're expecting to see. Also, the second and third movie repeat and subvert some earlier skits. Two women prepare to play "Catch the Knife." The first woman shoots the other instead. Suicide by Cop: "Quick! Shoot me in the face!" Superdickery: "Save me, Superguy!" "No." "You're a diiiick!" *splat* Surreal Humor: Tons. Take a Third Option: Take That: Deleted Scenes features a nasty one towards . The Annoying Orange
Father watching son making an orange and an apple talk: Well, we failed. ( cocks shotgun) Don't look, honey. Talking Animal: Mine Turtle. The ducks are a more unusual case; when one of them quacks, the other remarks (in English) how he was just about to say the same thing. There Was a Door: The Trains from the "I Like Trains" kid. Justified because, well, they're trains. They Called Me Mad! / Mad Scientist: They said he could never teach a llama to drive. He probably should have listened. Too Dumb to Live: Billy. He baked himself into being a pie ("I want to be a pie"). Train Song: The "I Like Trains" song, though it's about the "I Like Trains" kid rather than the trains themselves. Trigger Happy: Everybody. Tuckerization: The Mine Turtle was apparently invented by a man named Tom. (Mine) Turtle Power: Technically, he's a tortoise. Unusual Euphemism: "holy shirt!", as seen in the end of asdfmovie deleted scenes. Verbal Tic Name: Presumably the "I Like Trains" kid. Violation of Common Sense: Where to START?! Visual Pun: From asdfmovie6. Mom: Here comes the airplane! Boy: *opens mouth* * airplanes lands on house* Vomit Indiscretion Shot: "Doctor, I think I might be a homosexual." "How can you tell?" " RAAAINBOOOOOWS" "Quick! Don't think about cats!" (BLARRRRGH) "Hey, are you an angel? Because I'm allergic to feathers." *pukes in the girl's face* The Walrus Was Paul: EVERYTHING Weaksauce Weakness: "I'm allergic to adorableness!" Weird Moon: "HEY, YOU TWO SHOULD KISS!!!" What Kind of Lame Power is Tree, Anyway?: Lady: "Somebody help me, I'm being robbed!!" T-Man: "I'll save you! Tree powers activate!!" *turns into a tree* Who Writes This Crap?!: "Whose idea was this?!"
