* ManOnFire: After the man sets a distant city on fire, a man runs into view with his head engulfed in flames. The man follows him, but by the time he's caught up, the fire has consumed everything but his feet(which are ''still walking''), and soon consumes those as well.

* ManOnFire: After the man sets a distant city on fire, a man runs into view with his head engulfed in flames. The man follows him, but by the time he's caught up, the fire has consumed everything but his feet(which feet (which are ''still walking''), and soon consumes those as well.

Added DiffLines:

* CeilingBanger: When he first hears the noise, the man first bangs on the floor with a broom, then tries banging on the ceiling.

Added DiffLines:

* BreastExpansion: After the naked woman beats the man up with her breasts, the man blows into one of them and it inflates. The woman [[{{Balloonacy}} floats for a moment]] before the breast explodes, and suddenly the man is in a sea of giant breasts.


Added DiffLines:

* HellIsThatNoise: The "Tup tup" sound the man keeps hearing. It starts with it just keeping him from sleeping, but as he gets more and more desperate to stop it, it sends him into an UnstoppableRage that leads him to destroy all around him.


Added DiffLines:

* InstantGravestone: The man sets off a bomb in a large crowd, turning it into an instant cementery.
* ItsQuietTooQuiet: After much mayhem, the man appears to have eradicated the source of the noise, and happily lies down on the ground to read a scrap of newspaper. But soon the ''lack'' of noise starts to get to him, and starts going insane again.
* LaughingMad: The man near the end.
* ManOnFire: After the man sets a distant city on fire, a man runs into view with his head engulfed in flames. The man follows him, but by the time he's caught up, the fire has consumed everything but his feet(which are ''still walking''), and soon consumes those as well.
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: At one point the man kneels down to pray, which is then reduced to incoherent ranting towards God.
* RandomEventsPlot: Although there's a common thread of the man looking for the source of the sound that's keeping him awake, most of the story seems to be the animator doing whatever bizarre sight gag popped into his head.
* SanitySlippage: The man gradually becomes more and more unhinged, until he goes into a rampage and destroys everything in sight.

Added DiffLines:

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: It looks like it will be a comic story about a man who wants to go to sleep but is distracted by an annoying noise. Then the film goes completely crazy, leaving plot behind for a second part filled with freaky imagery.

Added DiffLines:

''Tup Tup'' is a 1971 animated short film (12 minutes) from the former Yugoslavia (or the current UsefulNotes/{{Croatia}}), directed by Nedeljko Dragić.

A man has retired for the evening. He relaxes in bed, attempting to read a newspaper. However, from the downstairs apartment the man hears an annoying noise that sounds like "tup tup". The man yells in anger and bangs on the floor with a broom, to no effect. Finally he takes radical action, blowing up the entire apartment building. It's here where the film turns bizarre and surreal, as the bomb destroys the entire apartment building but somehow leaves the man unscathed on his bed, which is now resting on the open ground. The only thing left of his apartment building is a pile of bricks--which sort themselves into the shape of a man, who runs away. From that moment, what was once a cartoon with a fairly coherent story becomes a parade of bizarre, nonsensical, dreamlike animation that recalls the later work of Creator/BillPlympton in the United States.

!!Tropes:

* {{Angrish}}: Various inarticulate shouts of rage from the man as the noise bothers him.
* AnimateInanimateObject:
** The man enters a building. The door to the building becomes a mouth, the building retches, and it spits the man out.
** For a little while the man is chased around by a chair.
* {{Bizarchitecture}}: Before the rest of the cartoon gets bizarre, the man is lying in his bed in an oddly-shaped bedroom with a far wall that is very far away.
* DerangedAnimation: Bizarre imagery from the moment the man blows up the building. In one scene someone takes the man's picture. Apparently he's a reporter, as a picture of the man shows up in the newspaper. Then the picture of the man somehow ''becomes'' the man, as he hops out of the newspaper and, now very tiny, runs away.
* DigYourOwnGrave: The man does this, but his attempt at suicide fails (see HappilyFailedSuicide below).
* HappilyFailedSuicide: The man attempts to shoot himself in the head. Instead a huge frog materializes from the barrel of the gun, kisses him, and becomes a beautiful naked princess.
* ImpactSilhouette: The man falls straight through the ground, creating a silhouette which reveals what seems to be a second world underneath. That's weird. It's weirder when the Impact Sihouette becomes animated, gets up, and runs away.
* TheSociopath: Surely blowing up an entire building to get rid of an annoying sound shows a lack of empathy.
* TitleDrop: The picture of the man in the newspaper is accompanied by a story that's nothing but gibberish except for the caption "Tup Tup".
* TorpedoTits: Sort of. The man is surprised to see a buxom naked woman. He's even more surprised when her large breasts become prehensile and ''start beating him up''.
* TrueLovesKiss: Presumably what took place when the frog kisses the man and turns into a hot naked princess.
* TurningBackHuman: The frog at the end kisses the man, and becomes a gorgeous naked princess (judging by the crown).
* VisualPun: Many. At one point a naked woman presses her nipple with a finger, and a TV screen appears on her belly.
