Web Animation: Welcome to
Welcome to TV Tropes! Now that you're a troper, it's time to learn the ins and outs of the site!

Why don't you start out by writing a description for something below?

Welcome to... is a series of videos by JelloApocalypse, each centering on a specific website under the guise of an instructional video for using said site. While it does teach you a lot about the site, most of the videos are dedicated to mocking the hell out of the site and its users.

The videos include:

Starting with Tumblr, the creators are allowing suggestions for future videos in the comments.

Great job! Now try adding some tropes! That's what the site's named for, after all.

These are tropes! Anyone can add them, but not many people do it right.

  • Alliterative Name: "Predisposition Pete".
  • April Fools' Day: Twitter and Vine.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: While listing the various fandoms of Tumblr:
    • Then there's the female host's attempts at insulting other sites:
    "deviantART? More like "Grand Theft Art-ro"! Facebook? More like "Flake-book"! 9gag? More like 9... gag... nailed it!"
  • Big "NO!": The guide in Facebook does one after seeing the mess that is Duck Fayce's profile page.
  • Biting-the-Hand Humor: Welcome to Youtube takes the piss out of the website that hosts his videos.
  • Blush Sticker: Shown repeatedly in Tumblr, most noticeably on the female host.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Tumblr recommends you upload videos to YouTube, Dailymotion, or X-Videos instead of Tumblr itself.
  • Excited Show Title!
  • Fan Fic: Mocked in DeviantArt:
    "...many people also post their writings in the Literature section, because the internet's number one art website is the best place to go to post literature. Here you can find everything. Fan fiction, poetry, original screenplays, fan fiction, comedic writing, non-fiction, fan fiction, and erotic fan fiction. And it doesn't matter if your writing isn't very good and you're 'soory you don't have time to correct the misspells, because someone in the DeviantArt community will always be amazed that you were able to put words in the box."
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: All the videos have this somewhere or other, but Twitter is filled with them.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Facebook has the titular program: Welcome To Facebook.
  • Furry Fandom: Mocked several times in Tumblr.
  • Get Out: Said in Tumblr after the narrator questions if the peg is a white cisgender straight male (a parody of social justice warriors).
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Parodied in DeviantArt, as the narrator states that the site has its own language program, where you can learn words like "desu", "kawaii", "sugoi", "nii-chan", "neko", and "waifu":
    "...which all roughly translate to FUCK OFF."
  • Gross-Up Close-Up: One section in Tumblr has a penguin trying to convince others that it's going extinct, before revealing that it was a lie:
    "...but one day [cue close up] IT MIGHT NOT BE."
  • Hermaphrodite: A peg in Tumblr tries to claim to be this by slapping a picture of a vagina over his crotch. The narrator tells him that the term is racist (somehow), telling him to call himself "vagin-abled" instead.
  • Hive Mind: One segment from Tumblr has the Delightful Children from Down the Lane complaining about discrimination towards these.
  • Hypocritical Humor: One of the listed steps to BECOME FAMOUS! in YouTube is to slap a pair of big cartoon boobs on the thumbnail of your videos — the illustration being on the thumbnail for the video itself, of course. Something similar occurs in Tumblr.
  • Informed Self Diagnosis: Parodied in Tumblr:
    "Do you worry about tests sometimes? You have ANXIETY DISORDER! Do you touch the doorknob before opening doors? Then you've got CRIPPLING OCD! Do you sometimes itch yourself in public? Then it looks like you're TURNING INTO A WOLF!"
  • Inherently Funny Words: Duck Fayce's "QUACK!" in the Facebook video gets funnier every time. Especially because it's an adult man's voice attached to a 13-year-old girl.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: The narrator in Tumblr recommends pandering to a fandom - or "pandom". Cue several "boo"'s flying across the screen.
  • Political Correctness Gone Mad: Tumblr's social justice warriors are repeatedly made fun of in its accompanying video.
  • Precision F-Strike: Generally once a video (except for Facebook).
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Mocked several times, most explicitly in DeviantArt.
  • Running Gag: YouTube repeatedly mentions "BECOME FAMOUS!" as a goal.
    • Tumblr switches from the normal male host to a female one from time to time, always indicated when one shouts "REBLOG!" It comes to a head near the end, when the two start fighting.
  • Shipping: invoked Mocked in DeviantArt:
    "Finally, the world can see your opinions on which Professor Layton characters will make the best couple."note 
  • Shout-Out: One part of Facebook uses the Saturn Valley music from EarthBound.
    • The peg modeling the fashion blog in Tumblr is clearly modeled after Elsa from Frozen.
      • A segment in the same animation about shipping uses the Once-ler from The Lorax as an example.
      • The first character used for an ask blog is Bubbles.
      • Another segment involving fandom shows a peg dressed as Monkey D. Luffy, the protagonist of One Piece.
      • During the fandom montage the narrator mispronounces "Attack on Titan" as "Attack on Titania," represented as little dots attacking a giant Titania from Fire Emblem Tellius.
      • The peg with the pink afro complaining about conforming to gender roles is clearly a magypsy from MOTHER 3.
    • Twitter has several, usually hidden in the hashtags.
      • The chalkboard outside the lemonade stand has a sign advertising "lemon-gren-ades."
      • The hashtag "Get Jiggy With it" literally features a peg dancing with two jiggies from Banjo-Kazooie.
      • At one point Danny Phantom is featured coming out of a woman's locker room.
  • Take That: The videos are mostly made of these towards popular sites and users.
    • DeviantArt mocks people who overuse Japanese terms, inflation artists, and shippers.
    • Facebook mocks people who whine about their (very simple) problems on Facebook, along with people who take bad photos and don't admit it, people who friend people they barely know and refuse to unfriend anyone, and people who misuse the site in general.
    • YouTube mocks people who make comments about the like/dislike bar, comments that say "Thumbs up if [X] brought you here", users that upload certain types of videos, and Youtube's copyright system, among other things. Specific channels that get a Take That against them include Fred, The Annoying Orange, Pony.MOV, Ray William Johnson, and PewDiePie.
    • Twitter mocks the site as a whole, especially its userbase.
    • Tumblr mocks fandom, night bloggers who post flame baity things, people who reblog important causes without seeing if said causes are real or not, and especially the traits of social justice warriors.
    • invokedMost of Vine consists of Jello himself talking to "Joe" and taking the piss out of his own commenters and their suggestions for future videos.
  • Take That Me: Youtube jokingly suggests making an Abridged Series as a way to attract attention from the anime community. The narrator then sarcastically says "Those are always a success!," providing a link via annotation which reads: "What loser would even try something like that, am I right?". The link leads to Jello's own Abridged Series.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Duck Fayce in Facebook wears a bow.
  • The Nineties:
    "Don't like that picture! Everybody remembers Hey Arnold!, it's not an old show."
    "QUACK!"
    "You are not a 90's kid, you were born in '99."
  • Time Skip: The titular guide in Facebook is deactivated a minute into the video by Duck Fayce, and reawakens four months later to find that she's utterly ruined her profile page.
  • Title Drop: Near the beginning of every video.
  • Visual Pun: Several installments represent "boobies" with the bird.
    • The user in Facebook is literally named "Duck Fayce".
    • Twitter shows "hash tags" — that is, tags that have been hashed.

What's that? You want to know what happened to Troper Tales and Fetish Fuel?

... We don't talk about those anymore.
