YMMV / Mulberry

  • Anvilicious: "Heiress A Parent".
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • After Mulberry prevents some cartoon all-stars from making Jack endure anti-piracy lectures in "Jack the Ripper," she never mentions meeting them again. Word of God says this was originally going to be part of a Brick Joke, with additional cartoon characters appearing later to lecture Jack, but the second scene would have disrupted the flow.
    • Mulberry does some pretty random things after Brittany Murphy's death in "Murphy's Lawn" causes her to think about all the people she took for granted lately.
    • The two-page Neverending Story homage in "Mulberry's 2012 Fall TV Preview".
  • Bizarro Episode: "Mulberry's Epic Yarn" starts out as a parody of Kirby's Epic Yarn, then becomes progressively stranger, until they reveal that Mulberry wrote the issue herself, apparently warping hers and Taffy's reality.
  • Genius Bonus: John K's list of enemies in "Artifacting" includes several famous animators and cartoon writers (plus ToonZone founder Eileen Cruz).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In "Mulberry's Epic Yarn", Mulberry shoots Willow Rosenberg with her Finger Gun, then proclaims, "That's official canon, by the way." Later, Free Spirit would allow Jessie Harper, another TV character portrayed by Willow's actress, to become a key part of the Platypus Comix oeuvre.
    • Batman vs. Batman from "My Fat Lady" seems to unintentionally reflect future complaints that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice makes Batman's and Superman's philosophies too similar, compared to the comics. In the same story, Mulberry's Imagine Spot about tasteless fat jokes Ghostbusters (2016) could make includes one where Melissa McCarthy loudly eats a sandwich during an investigation. Swap McCarthy with Kate McKinnon, and replace the sandwich with Pringles, and this would perfectly match an actual gag in the movie.
  • More Popular Spin-off: The Platypus Comix website has a healthy archive of Mulberry comics, but none for Marin Meadow, the comic where Mulberry Sharona and Jack first appeared.
  • Nausea Fuel:
    • Readers of "Obamadramarama" see Hillary Rodham Clinton-possessed Mulberry as an old woman wearing a Mulberry wig and outfit.
    • In "Mulberry's Wraparounds", the last commercial that Mulberry and her friends endure promotes Skittles with the tagline, "Vomit the rainbow! Taste the rainbow!" Word of God says the visuals, which the readers fortunately don't see, involve people barfing Skittles into each other's mouths.
  • Nightmare Fuel: See NightmareFuel.Platypus Comix
  • Shallow Parody: "Outtatime" replaces the holographic Jaws 19 ad with a giant Melissa McCarthy hologram, who chomps Marty to promote the comedy Unsubtle. While this provides a slam at movies wasting McCarthy as Fat Comic Relief, her filmography for 2015 doesn't contain any movies making jokes about her overeating—just the espionage spoof Spy, in which she played an adorkable yet genuinely witty and resourceful CIA agent.note 
  • Squick: "Murphy's Lawn" has Brittany Murphy get raped by a unicorn and left to eventually give birth to a Half-Human Hybrid "Human-Corn" at the end of her last movie. Fortunately, the readers don't get to see the disgusting parts.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: "Death By Captain and Tenille" ends with Mulberry and her friends obtaining Optimus Prime, but does not show any adventures they have with him.
