Western Animation / Fugget About It


Fugget About It is a series that begain airing on Teletoon in 2012. It was created by Nicholas Tabarrok and Willem Wennekers for the network's Teletoon at Night block.

The series focuses on Jimmy Falcone, a former mob capo from New York, who found out his uncle and fellow capo Cheech is to be wacked. He sets out to talk to the don about calling off the hit, and ended up killing him. The mob calls a hit out on Jimmy, and he goes to the feds and they have him rat out his friends, before putting the Falcone family in Witness Protection. Jimmy ends up moving to Regina, under the new name McDoogal, with his wife Cookie, oldest daughter Theresa, son Petey, youngest daughter Gina, and Uncle Cheech, with RCMP Strait McCool overseeing them.

And if you think just because they've changed their names, means they're gonna change themselves, FUGGET ABOUT IT!

The series stars Tony Nappo, Jacqueline Pillon, Chuck Shamata, Emilie Claire Barlow, Danny Smith, Linda Kash and Ted Atherton

This animated series provides examples of:

  • The Ace: McCool. A well built, well endowed, Nice Guy who accomplished everything safe witness protection, which is why he demands to be demoted to it.
    • Petey during his short time as a junior RCMP proved to be a better officer than even McCool, to the point that he was banned from ever becming a real one because he made everyone else in the force look bad.
  • The Alcoholic: Cheech is almost always seen with a drink in his hand.
  • All Just a Dream: One episode was basically Jimmy and Cheech stoned and telling a story.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: According to Cheech, The mob was not only responsible for the deaths of Jimmy Hoffa and JFK, but also Scientology, the faking of the moon landing and the shooting of Harry Whittington.
  • Ax-Crazy: Gina has shades of this.
  • Berserk Button: Petey's "Trigger" is whenever someone badmouths anything leftwing.
    • Jimmy killed the Don for making a lewd comment about Theresa.
  • Bigger Bad: Don Gambini posthumously.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Cheech, in the pilot he considers threatening Petey's family so he throws a fight, not understanding the obvious problem with that.
  • Color-Coded Characters:
    • Jimmy - Black.
    • Cookie - Purple.
    • Cheech - Yellow.
    • Theresa - Orange.
    • Petey - Green.
    • Gina - Purple and pink.
    • McCool - Red.
  • Creepy Child: Gina, she is more into mob life than her father was.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Cheech, he is a mob enforcer after all.
  • Determinator: Nothing will stop Jimmy from playing through in a golf game. Not getting hit by a bike, not a tiger attack, not being decapitated. Nothing.
  • Disappeared Dad: Jimmy's dad left him at a young age. He runs ito "him" again in one episode, and it's discovered he had a sex change of the years.
  • Fighting Irish: O'Shea, the Premier of Saskatchewan.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: The Falcone became part of organized crime when their cobbler's ancestor accidentally killed a Don and got recruited by the rival family. Making shoes for people apparently gave him a lot of pent up aggression which was perfect for his new life.
  • Gag Boobs: Cookie. Especially in "Cookie's Ovary Actin" where her cleavage is able to swallow Jimmy's entire head.
  • Gainaxing: Every grown female in the series does this to an extent.
  • Granola Girl: Petey is a Rare Male Example. The first episode establishes that people can send him into a rage just by bragging about wanting to kill endangered species or otherwise badmouthing favorite Granola Girl causes.
  • Happily Married: Jimmy and Cookie.
  • History Repeats: Jimmys own great-grandfather was also responsible for a mafia boss falling through a high window to his death and was forced to leave his home for fear of being whacked. The difference was that Jimmy bodily threw Don Gambini out the window, while Giuseppi didn't actually kill the Don, because the man fell out the window himself because he forced Giuseppi to give him shoes too big for his feet. Also this act got the grandfather 'into' the mafia rather than be forced to leave.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Petey.
  • The Lancer: Cheech will often fill this spot for Jimmy.
  • Literal-Minded: Petey's robot double. He built it so he could switch it between literal and figurative.
  • The Load: Cheech, him being put on Gambini's hit list kickstarted the events that lead to the Falcone asking for witness protection.
  • Luxury Prison Suite: The whole prison in "Hunts With Handguns". The only difference between it and a spa is that the doors have bars, and they aren't even locked. Jimmy even asks how a jail like this is meant to stop people wanting to break the law.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Theresa.
  • Not So Above It All:
    • In one episode McCool is seen visiting a strip club and getting a lap dance from the stippers, of course, he insists they follow established strip club rules. Also one episode dealing with his gambling issue show that while good at cards he doesn't know when to quit.
    • Petey can have his own comedic sociopathy moment, such as when he threw bricks at his father until he excuses himself (to make him more Canadian). Also he watches internet porn like any teenager.
  • Papa Wolf: Jimmy. The reason he killed Gambini was because he talked about how sexy Theresa is. When a gun alert in Gina's school Jimmy rammed his car through the living room asking Cookie and Cheech to get in.
  • Running Gag: Every episode begins with a flashback scene of Jimmy's mob life, and the events that led to him being in witness protection.
    • He also pronounces Regina as "Vagina", only to be corrected by Cookie.
    • Also before the theme song, Jimmy or a member of his family gives a Title Drop.
    • McCool would often exclaim "For Canada and..." following with a joke of regarding the current situation or some satire on Canadian culture before riding off on his horse.
    "For Canada! And naming cities when you're DRUNK!"
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Jimmy looks almost exactly like his great-grandfather Giuseppi, minus the moustache.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Before he killed him, Jimmy had to constantly make sure that the Don didn't kill himself by accident. The entire reason Jimmy killed him in the first place was because the man refused to take the hit of his uncle, then made a perverted comment about his daughter.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Jimmy and Theresa.
    • Inverted with Don Gambini's own daughter, who looked like her mother.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Inverted with Don Gambini and his wife. The Don was a well built middle aged man, while his wife looked like a hairy armed Lumberjack in a dress.
    • The same with Jimmy's own father and mother. The man looked good whether in a suit or a dress. While Jimmy's mother, as described by her ex-husband was beautiful ... on the inside.
  • Witness Protection: The show's premise.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: "For Canada! And a Sasquatch Jimmy? Really?!".
