Webcomic: The Horrifying Experiments of Dr. Pleasant!
Pictured center is Dr. Pleasant, who is joined by several other characters.

"The Horrifying Experiments of Dr. Pleasant!" is a low rez pixel art comic on the WEB! A heartwarming tale about the titular Doctor, his assistant Gale, and all the new friends they make. (quite literally!)

It can be found here or here and also here.

The comic provides examples of:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Gale alliterates a lot. The comic where Cathy gets revived shows her getting irritated at this.
  • Artificial Human: Armando was created to be irresistible to women, but is mostly just stuck in the midst of an existential crisis.
  • Artificial Limbs: Isabelle has a robotic pelvis, legs, left arm, left eye, and a tail to boot!
  • Blaxploitation Parody: Luscious Black. He's the boldest, blackest character in fiction.
  • Blob Monster: Kilo. He's fond of attractive human females and doesn't produce solid waste.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Most characters feature a color heavily in their design. This color fills their respective text boxes too, which is convenient for when characters are talking out of panel. Colors are as follows:
    • White - Dr. Pleasant
    • Red - Cathy
    • Green - Gale
    • Blue - Amanda
    • Linen - Sable
    • Pink - Phophora

  • Cute Monster Girl: The primary comedic setup is the Doctor reviving a girl and Gale hitting on them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Amanda's inability to feel emotions means "deadpan" is her only choice in delivery.
  • Emotionless Girl: Amanda came back wrong and lost her emotional capabilities.
  • Giant Enemy Crabgirl: While Cathy is a normal sized girl, her crab claw is almost as big as she is.
  • Harping On About Harpies: Joselyn has wings on her back, feathered arms, and bird legs.
  • Hulk Speak: Kilo displaying the "fine, articulate speech you can expect from the average person."
  • The Igor: Far more hideous than a hunchback, Gale is an obnoxious dudebro.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Beatrix's only visible bee parts are her antennae... And her compound eyes.
  • Mad Scientist: Natch.

  • Na´ve Everygirl: Ophelia, in spite of being nothing but a head on spider-like robot.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses: The shading on Dr. Pleasant's glasses at least show which way he is looking.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: The goddess Na'dlehee Lupu is shown transforming into a wolf-like creature.
  • Plant Person: Subject A-2.14, which also happens to emit a powerful hallucinogen. May or may not actually be "Alive and stuff."
  • Shout-Out: Dr. Wright is a clear reference to Dr. Light. This Doctor makes sex robots though.
  • Snake People: Francesca, who comes complete with forked tongue, wild hair, and plenty of sass.
  • Sssssnake Talk: Francesca does this when she is teasing people and/or has been drinking.
