Web Animation: Tiny Fuppets
Comedy writer Scott Gairdner's parody of Video Brinquedo's shameless ripoffs of Pixar and DreamWorks Animation movies. Tiny Fuppets is supposed to be a Captain Ersatz version of ''Muppet Babies''. Characters include Kormit (Kermit, Ms. Woman (Miss Piggy), Gonzor (Gonzo), Tummi (Fozzie Bear), and Animanuel (Animal).

Tiny Fuppets provides examples of:

Episodes of Tiny Fuppets provide examples of:

  • Affectionate Parody: Of the Muppet Babies, at least.
  • Bizarro Universe: Juniors Minis. Kremmitt is rendered helpless by a spider on his head, Grumzle is aggressive but is likewise terrified of the spider, Senor Prima Ursa Gordo speaks and is highly regarded, and the unnamed Ms. Woman analogue... is still a Neutral Female.
  • Black Comedy: The Fuppets celebrating their conquest of the disease in "A Bad Cough." While Tummi suffers untreated in the "tent" behind them.
  • Blatant Lies: "Milan is beautiful. There are no beaches." Though, given the universe, Gumboing might not be lying.
  • Brick Joke: "I escaped an owl today!"
  • Buffy Speak: In "Summer Splash." "Fish. Spider fish. Fishbag. Don't know. Aah, scary!"
  • Carnivore Confusion: In "Internet Follies," Kormit eats bacon for breakfast.
  • Christmas Special: "A Very Fuppets Holiday Christmas". (Dedicated to the memory of Piano Dog).
  • Deconstruction: For about ten seconds in Meet The Fuppets: Kormit weeps at his father Papa Ra's grave, then tries to console himself by imagining being Sherlock Holmes. His conclusion: "My dreams exceed my real life!"
  • Enforced Plug: In "A Bad Cough". Fetch all four varieties of Sumol, the titan of the beverage kingdom! You won't remember where your frowns went!
  • "I Want" Song: Parodied with Kormit's "If I was Big." He only wants to be big enough to achieve modest goals, such as scissor operation and to avoid being crushed by magazines closing on him. However, he realizes he'd lose some advantages of being small. He ultimately decides there would be numerous pros and cons either way. Nothing changes at the end of the episode.
  • Shout-Out: To The Room. "Everybody betray me, I'm fed up with this world!" For most viewers, this is the gag that tips the series' hand.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: MIDI-like tunes similar to "Physical" and "The Glory of Love" play during the "Party Pals" episode.
  • Totem Pole Trench: It takes Kormit and hundreds of other Fuppets to mimic an adult.
  • The Stinger: Most episodes.
