Adventures of the Puffincat
Once there was the sailors, of the Soviet,
and one day they decided that they wants another pet!
Daddy was the puffins, Mommy was the cat,
and when they puts together makes the Puffincat!
is Exactly What It Says on the Tin
. Puffincat is the main character, who is half-puffin and half-cat. He lives on a ship with Soviet sailors, and has adventures.
The series mostly makes use of Russian stereotypes and family unfriendly aesops
for humor, and has a decent following on the internet. There are currently six episodes available for watching, and it's unknown whether or not there will be more.
Adventures of the Puffincat provides examples of:
- "Blind Idiot" Translation - The narrator is supposed to speak English as if it was translated from Russian in a very, very poor manner. While it's not always noticeable, there are some lines that are hilarious due to this, such as "Puffincat has clever smart mind concept!" and "Let us look in the labrrorratriry. No! Not still here AGAIN even!"
- Clip Show - Part of the fourth episode.
- Family-Unfriendly Aesop - Puffincat usually gets beaten up at the end of the episode for not adhering perfectly to Soviet ideals.
"Same for all! SAMESAMESAMESAME -end."
- Glorious Mother Russia - Of course.
- Interspecies Romance - Between Puffincat's parents. If the intro for episodes 4-6 is anything to go by, the father and mother probably didn't want to do it, though.
- Mother Russia Makes You Strong - The sailors are depicted in this way.
- National Stereotypes - They use the Russian stereotypes.
- Once per Episode - Puffincat having a "clever smart mind concept," getting beat up and telling the viewers what he did wrong.
- Squick - The "unmentionable diarrhea."
- Stock Footage - Some pictures are reused throughout several episodes, or even in one episode.
- Subverted Kids Show - It sure looks like one. Even if you pretend it would be fine in the Soviet Union, remember bits like Puffincat's "unmentionable diarrhea," and how to tell the difference between a male and female Puffincat.
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics - Played with in episode 4.
"You see, male Puffincats have a hairy nut-sack, and the female Puffincat, the difference is she have a bow in her hair."
- Vodka Drunkenski - Episode 3 deals with Puffincat trying to get drunk with the sailors.
