Because you wouldn't believe it otherwise
Assy McGee is an animated [adult swim] show, started in 2006. The title character is a mushmouthed torso-less Rabid Cop. By "torso-less", we mean he is a walking pair of buttocks, one walking around "backwards". Assy and his cop partner, Sanchez are cops in the city of Exeter. No matter the crime, Assy usually resolves it by getting drunk, shooting wildly and somehow stopping the perp (usually lethally). You may be wondering how a walking pair of buttocks gets drunk or talks. It's exactly what'd you would expect.

Canceled due to poor ratings and negative viewer reactions. The whole first season was made before the cancellation, so the rest of the episodes were "burned off" on Sundays, late at night.

No relation to Haryadhi Gee.


Assy McGee provides examples of:

  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: Or in this case "reasonable cop and Rabid Cop".
  • Da Chief: Greg, or as everyone calls him "The Chief". He fits the trope to a "T".
  • Expy: to the overused buddy cop formula.
  • Fingerprinting Air: Assy takes a paint chip with a fingerprint on it and eventually turns it into a life-size sculpture of the culprit.
  • Gasshole: Assy, in a manner of speaking, as he farts at least once an episode.
  • Hannibal Lecture: The episode "Pegfinger" contains a parody of the Trope Naming scene in The Silence of the Lambs. While walking down a corridor identical to the one in the movie, Assy warns Sanchez not to let the prisoner they're about to question "get inside his head." Pegfinger immediately does so in seconds with little more than a racist joke ("A wedding ring? How many oranges did you have to pick to pay for that?"). Sanchez goes berserk and shoots him to death.
  • Homage: The show is an homage to tough cop movies like Dirty Harry. One episode in particular is very extremely similar to the first Dirty Harry movie.
  • Invisible Anatomy: Assy has no hands, but still is able to manipulate objects.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: A wounding gunshot is a valid interrogation technique for Assy.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite all the McCloud Speeches and Turn In Your Badges, Assy never receives any lasting punishment for killing and injuring countless innocent people, which underscores that the show takes place in a Crapsack World.
  • Nominal Hero: Assy is a foolish cop who cares about doing his job his own way.
  • Product Placement: Even though this is a 11 minute show, there is an Act Break halfway through each episode to play a clip of Assy selling Scion xBs.
  • Punny Name: Assy Mcgee...LITERALLY AN ASS!
  • Rabid Cop: Assy takes this to a disturbing extreme, to the point of being a Sociopathic Hero.
