The plotlines revolve around Tetra the ant-eater and his friends, or VitriolicBestBuds, or whatever. The strip mix the FunnynAnimal with normal humans, and sometimes RealLife people as well. Politicians of different flavors have it coming big time. SurrealHumor is a staple here.

Tetra is usually the main character, and was the first to be introduced. He is an ant-eater, and is accompanied by Freddy, a weasel, and {{God}}, who is retired (he has left the day-to-day running of things over to {{Jesus}}). Sulle, a rabbit, was also in from the start, later PutOnABus, to be replaced by the CloudCuckoolander Gonzales, another rabbit. Rosa, a girl, fills in as the OnlySaneMan, while the antagonist usually is a "mrs Pepperpot", who runs the local congregation. Tetra is actually killed off at least once (being executed), but was kicked out of Heaven for playing too loud. The confusion is even more complete when you add the alien Arcatus, and his daughter, who eats babies alive. Lauvik himself also stars in a number of strips, usually to explain to the editor, and the readers, what is going on.
