Murry Purry Fresh and Furry
is a furry retail comedy webcomic by Agouti Rex
. It mostly follows the adventures of Melvin, a surly, lazy janitor working in a decrepit porn shop. As you might guess, it's often not safe for work
- Melvin Adelman, bilby janitor.
- Cloey Woodresin, his wife, a pine marten (does not actually work in the store).
- Mr. (Martin) Hefferbottom, owner and manager, a ferret.
- Wilbur Kozofsky, armadillo cashier.
- Filbert Hibiscus, hellbender projectionist.
- Magnolia Mayonaise, opossum stripper.
- Adorkable: Melvin.
- Alas, Poor Yorick: Melvin gives an... abbreviated soliloquy to a skull during a Hamlet parody.
- Alliterative Name: Magnolia Mayonaise.
- Ambiguous Gender: Sally the Dog is often referred to as male despite her name and feminine clothes.
- Author Avatar: Melvin is pretty much just a Mary Sue-ish self-insert of Agouti-Rex.
- Barefoot Cartoon Animals
- The Bechdel Test: The creator gives himself a big F.
- Charlie and the Chocolate Parody: It doesn't even bother to set it in something other than a candy factory.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Generalisimo Chlamydia Clitoria Butterwort III, esq.
- Cool Cat: Well, Cool Cat.
- Cool Shades: Cool Cat wears totally cool shades.
- Crapsack World: The strip takes place in a grimy, run-down porn store in a city called, appropriately, "Failtown".
- Family Theme Naming: Pickles and Peaches Le Rou.
- Fat Bastard: Wilbur.
- Fat Slob: Subverting the usual trope, there are two rather overt female fat slobs, Princess Aurelina and Cadillac MySpace.
- Furry Comic: In roughly the same way that Don Quixote is a chivalric romance.

- No Celebrities Were Harmed: For a given value of "celebrity", anyway. Some characters, especially drop-ins appear to be based on the "fursonas" of well-known members of the furry
fandom fetish subculture "community". A few, such as Aurelina, are completely undisguised, though.

- Overly Long Name: Generalisimo Chlamydia Clitoria Butterwort III, esq.

- Repetitive Name: Jolly Molly McGolly.
- Rim Shot: Used here
- The Speechless: Sally the Dog can communicate only by "woofing".
- Temporary Bulk Change: Cloey bloats up imensely after Melvin starts cooking marzipan. The trope is then played strait and lampshaded on the next page.
- Second Law of Gender Bending: Mocked in one strip; the parody TF comic boils down to "Boys are hideous and live bleak, miserable lives; girls (and boys turned girls) are pretty and have perfect lives with no problems".
- Straw Character: Wilbur.
- Take That: To The Get Along Gang here The fact that Montgomery Moose has a Swastika on his forehead makes it even funnier when you know about how they treated reptiles in that show.
