Western Animation: The Haunted World of El Superbeasto aka: The Haunted World Of El Super Beasto
The Haunted World of El Superbeasto is a 2009 animated horror comedy film by Rob Zombie, based upon the comic book series also created by him.El Superbeasto is a retired luchador who lives in the world of Monsterland, where humans and monsters live together: with the help of his sexy sister Suzi X and her horny sidekick/vehicle Murray the Robot he tries to foil the evil plans of Dr. Satan and his assistant Otto, a gorilla with a British accent.Marred by a case of Development Hell (it was supposed to come out in May '07), El Superbeasto owes a lot to series like Scooby-Doo and The Ren & Stimpy Show, with a lot more violence and many sexual elements and innuendo added, and therefore it's absolutely no children's cartoon.
The Haunted World of El Superbeasto provides examples of:
Anti-Hero: Beasto is a Type V and Suzi X is a Type IV.
Anything That Moves: Beasto is actually even attracted to both undead women and regular dead ones, but draws the line at Suzi since technically she's his sister. This may indicate he doesn't know he's adopted, but if he does, that's uncharacteristically noble of him.
Black Comedy: Well, there is that bit where Dr. Satan eats a baby and sucks up the umbilical cord like spaghetti...
Brother-Sister Incest: Interestingly enough, this is one of the lines Beasto will not cross. Despite it being clear that he and Suzi are not related he never shows any interest in her. At one point even is disgusted with himself when he accidentally flirted with her and questioned if it was wrong to see her and Velvet in a Cat Fight.
Informed Ability: El Superbeasto is supposed to be a lucha libre champion, but during the film he does very little fighting, and usually only punches his adversaries. It's implied pretty strongly that he earned his reputation as a brawler a long-ass time ago and is still trying to parlay that good will into an acting career, though.
Sistine Steal: Can be seen very briefly when Dr. Satan grows and shatters the ceiling of the wedding chapel: of course, Dr. Satan replaces the man in the painting.
Skewed Priorities: Dr. Satan's gorilla assistant. After being threatened about being sent back to the jungle and visualizing all of the horrific things in said jungle, the main reason he states why he does not want to go back is because there is no cable in the jungle.
Beasto takes a long time debating if he should go rescue Velvet after she was kidnapped due to the fact his hot wings were almost ready.
Stripperiffic: Then again, many female characters are strippers...
Talking Animal: Otto, Luke, and some of the other monsters in Monsterland.
Terrible Interviewees Montage: Subverted at the beginning: Beasto is having an audition for his next movie, but since he's going to shoot a porno, he only chooses the good-looking and dumb girls. Among the ones who weren't chosen there are parodies of Norma Desmond, Liza Minnelli in Cabaret and so on.
Wolf Whistle: Don't be surprised if you find somebody whistling this at Suzi and Velvet.
Wrong Genre Savvy: Dr. Satan. At the end he seems to think that this is a film where the Nerdy Hero (aka himself) gets the prom queen (Suzi) and beats up the Jerk Jock (Beasto). The brutal wedgie he gets after clearly informs him this is not the case.
X Rated Opening: Opens up with Beasto casting girls for a porno, then showing said porno.
