Web Animation: The Big Lez Show
"What the fuck?"
"You fuckin' druggo."
- Sassy the Sasquatch on Lez.
The Big Lez Show depicts the peculiar adventures of Leslie "Lez" Mackerel, an angry Australian man,drawn in MS Paint and animated crudely. His companions include Sassy the Sasquatch, who is never far from his bong and supply of "every drug on the planet", and his son Quintin. He routinely gets into conflict with his neighbour Norton. But amidst all this strangeness is an enormous plot that will decide the fate of the planet.

Tropes associated with "The Big Lez Show" include:
  • Art Evolution: The animation becomes progressively smoother over the course of the series. The first two seasons look quite choppy and low quality compared to the latest episodes
  • Badass: Ellis Warnington. His introduction consisted of him diving off a lighthouse into the ocean to bisect a shark with a small knife.
  • Axe Crazy: Warnington. Also possibly Mike Nolan to an extent, if Choomah Island is anything to indicate.
    • As a matter of fact, Lez himself probably qualifies as this.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Sassy will obtain and use drugs anywhere. That includes a deserted island.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Lez: "There's three things I hate in this world; Norton, Kids, and fucking bobbleheads. You ruined father's day!"
    • Sharks for Ellis.
  • Butt Monkey: Clarence, Norton and Quintin share this role.
  • Catch Phrase:
    • Sassy: "You fucken druggo" and "wadiyatalkinabeet?"
    • Lez: "What the fuck?"
    • Clarence: "Awwwww no."
  • Cold Turkeys Are Everywhere: Sassy starts freaking out after going without drugs for 20 minutes in Choomah Island. Donny then gives him a joint, which he smokes down in just one hit.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Sassy and Donny are this of the drug variety. They will smoke, snort or inject literally any substance into their bodies without any negative repercussions.
    Sassy: We fucking eat this shit for our morning breakfast
    Donny: It keeps the heart pumping

    Lez: So you're telling me Heroin is good for ya, and you should have it every day?
    Sassy: Fuck yeah, it's so good for ya!
    Donny: It's good for your cholesterol
  • Funny Animal: Sassy, Donny, Wayno, and Scruffy are sasquatches, who can all somehow speak perfect English (well, Australian English anyway), drive cars, drink alcohol, smoke bongs and operate firearms
  • Gargle Blaster: Sassy's "Trippa Snippa"
    Lez: Why's it called a Trippa Snippa?
    Sassy: 'Cause it trips you the fuck out, and your whole life gets snipped from reality. Plus you hear the sound of a whipper snipper in the back of your head for about 7 hours or so...
  • Kangaroo Court:
    • "You're fucking going straight to prison" after Sassy's drug arrest.
    • "On behalf of the jury, I find the defendant guilty and sentence him to a life sentence for murdering those cute puppies you sick fuck." After Lez is arrested for assaulting Norton.
  • Limited Animation: The first two season's were animated in MS Paint, then assembled frame by frame. The creators switched to using Macs for Season 3, so the animation is slightly smoother see [1]
  • Long List: The ingredients of Sassy's trippa snippa
    Sassy: Oh you know, the usual. Uhh: speed, weed, heroin, cocaine, mushrooms, Pine O Clean, petrol, battery acid, acid, sour beer, meth, some herbs and spices and some lettuce and tomato, vodka sauce, Bam! And the dirt is gone, Ajax spray n wipe, some chicken and cheese, all wrapped in a tortilla.
    Lez: *deathly scared look on his face*
    Sassy: Yeah, you're starting to feel the Sassy food magic, mate!
  • Mushroom Samba: Happens quite a bit, but most noticeably during the "flashback drug" sequence in Season Two.
  • Random Events Plot: Season One and, to a lesser extent, Season Two.
  • Sir Swearsalot: Pretty much everybody in the cast (except for Clarence)
  • Smoking Is Cool: Mike Nolan personifies this. In Choomah Island, it's revealed that he's apparently been a smoker since the age of 4!
  • Shout-Out: In Season 2, Donny's "Stealthy Fucker" costume resemble's Sam Fisher's MK V Tac Suit
  • Take That: In "Attack Of The Choomah's Part 2" Lez's comment after falling into a sewer
    Lez: *sniffs* Smells like Aussie rap down here. SHIT.
  • The Stoner: Sassy and the other sasquatches. Justified in that drugs are good for them.
  • Widget Series: Of the Australian variety
