Dick Figures is an animated web series created by Ed Skudder & Zack Keller (previously employed by Pixar, Jim Henson Company, Microsoft, and McDonald's advertising) about two best best friends named Red & Blue. It debuted on YouTube on November 18, 2010 and is currently produced by Mondo Media (Happy Tree Friends) and animated by Six Point Harness (first season of Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!). To date, it is the one of the most watched animated series on YouTube ever.Itís more awesome than a supernova wrapped in bacon. From the mundane to the magical, the world of the series combines off-the-wall action, absurd comedy, filmic references, mythical creatures, adorable animals, an eclectic soundtrack, lots of explosions, and a cast of colorful characters living out their lives in complete acceptance of the insanity surrounding them. Yet at the adrenaline-powered-blood-pumping heart of it all, the show is just pure fun.Thanks to the generous donations of viewers and the help of Kickstarter, a movie adaptation achieved it's base goal of $250,000 on July 17th, 2012. The movie was approximately 72 minutes long.The basic plot of the movie is Red and Blue being sent on a quest by the Raccoon to find The Greatest Sword of Destiny. Several secrets will be revealed and the adventure will be taken to levels unheard of. The movie was released on September 17, 2013. Examples from the movie go on its own page.
Flanderization: Red, if you can believe it. In the first season, he comes across as a Jerkass who likes getting drunk, hitting on women and has an attention span somewhere between uneducated and Cloud Cuckoolander. Fast forward to season 3 and Red has become a near-Ax-Crazy psycho, snorting drugs on a regular basis, bangs more chicks than someone with his personality should even be able to wink at, has ADHD and an alcohol intake that should see him dead on more than one occasion, and somehow has supernatural kung-fu abilities and chi powers (though this could be explained by the movie implying that he's an alien, yet another flanderizing step).
Big Eater: Red decides to go back in time solely because he wants eat an entire dinosaur.
Brainless Beauty: Actually subverted with Stacy. In "Modern Flame War 3", it's revealed she works as an internet technician.
Even more than that, "Robot Frog" reveals that she used to be completely straight-laced, going to med school while simultaneously holding down three jobs, in fact. Her desire to do something crazy for once spontaneously turned her into the party girl we all know her as.
Brick Joke: In "Losing Streakers", Red forces Blue to go to Sal Sagev to win their rent money. After collecting their ridiculous amount of winnings, Red screams "VIVA LAS VEGAS!" and drives to the actual Las Vegas.
Defeat Means Friendship: After Trollzor was humiliated in "Y U So Meme?", he teams up with Red and Blue to save the internet in "Modern Flame War 3".
Dream Within a Dream: Happens in "OMG", where Blue constantly wakes up to find that he's in a dream; with each one crazier than the last. In the end, it turns out that the Racoon was having these dreams all along.
Earl Gray fights with cups of tea and a diamond-encrusted monocle.
In "Zombies and Shotguns", Red (unintentionally) kills a zombie with a bag of chips.
Informed Attractiveness: According to "Modern Flame War 3" Stacy apparently has "the perfect boobs", but they look no different than any other girl's boobs in the series.
Insistent Terminology: A point of contention near the end of "Butt Genie", where Red and the Genie have a disagreement about what word describes the number of wishes they had accumulated. The Genie says that they had a "fuckton", while Red believes they only had a "shitload".
Kamehame Hadoken: Red wins the fight against the restaurant's master in "Kung Fu Winner" using this.
Kill It with Fire: Blue takes out a swarm of zombies by shooting a flammable bottle of perfume, engulfing the zombies in a ball of flame. Except that the sprinkler system then goes off, dousing the zombies and leaving them perfectly fine.
The Lad-ette: Stacy drinks and has sex just as much as Red does.
Nigh Invulnerable: A bag of chips in "Zombies & Shotguns." Makes about as much sense in context.
Out-of-Character Moment: "Kitty Amazing" is this for Red. It starts off with him taking out the trash; something his irresponsible self would never do. Later he becomes incredibly concerned when Kitty Amazing's cuteness starts killing those around him. He actually shows that he cares for Kitty Amazing; even kissing him before turning him into stone. The last few seconds has him as his normal Jerkass self again.
Painting the Medium: In "Freshman 15", Red has a number above his head that reads how many freshman girls he's had sex with. The fifteenth girl asks him about the number before he has sex with her.
Pixellation: In "Fang Angels" you can see Pink's breasts blurred out for a millisecond, even though you could see uncensored breasts in the previous episode. This is either because Pink had actual areola, while the earlier girl had just dots, or it's just a joke.
Prequel: "First Day of Cool" tells how Red and Blue met, along with several other characters.
"Robot Frog" appears like a normal episode... then several occurrences point to this occurring just hours before "A Bee or Something". Blue is talking to his girlfriend Stacy, who became a party slut after she breaks up with him. Raccoon is fighting a robot frog which causes him to be evicted by Mr. Dingleberry. Red swallows another bee but it's actually the first bee. The final scene was the first scene in "A Bee or Something".
The opening narration of "Role Playas" tells of the two protagonists opposing the "evil King Richard Figures the Long-Shaft." For those who don't get it, Dick is a common nickname for those named Richard.
