* AluminiumChristmasTrees: A chocolate-flavored soda was manufactured and sold under the "Zingo" brand between 1973 and 1977.

'''Kenny Starfighter''' is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] comedy miniseries from 1997. It is known for being somewhat TropeOverdosed.
Despite this, it is well-known in Sweden for being well made, with the intention of being SoBadItsGood.

It was aimed at kids, but contained many references for adults, such as the german teacher mentioning the Bader-Meinhof group when Marcus claims to have joined Buddhism.

It later spawned a Prequel movie named '''Kenny Begins'''. The movie is regarded by some as suffering from {{Sequelitis}}.

[[AC:Characters:]]
* ''Marcus'': The main character, a 15 year old boy from a small Swedish Town. Has an incredibly embarrassing mom.
* ''Tyrone'': A DeadpanSnarker, one of Marcus' friends. He later becomes a TurnCoat when Slem-Sven injects him with Mähälium.
* ''Burken'': A food-loving, silent, nerd. Despite claiming to be "big boned" he eats everything that looks edible, including, amongst other things: Wall insulation ("Tastes like strawberries!"), a sausage on a string (clearly a trap) and drinking a soda bottle dropped by a dead Galaxy Police officer.
* ''Sofia'': The team's only girl, acts like she knows best, and usually does.
* ''Kenny'': A complete CloudCuckoolander, that saves the galaxy using dumb luck and help from children.

!! Kenny Starfighter contains examples of:
* AffectionateParody
* AIIsACrapShoot: The Memorymatican isn't your regular computer bent on the destruction of the human race, but she is pretty bitchy, and prone to go into SarcasmMode.
* BuffySpeak: Kenny can't tell left from right, or a washing machine from a lifeform.
* CatchPhrase: ''Lots''. A few examples:
** Kenny: "Wolli-Bolli!" (greeting) "Ischlo-Pischlo!" (curse)
** Hempo 2: "(X)? Damn good!"
* ClothingDamage: partially subverted, as Kenny's suit gets a rip, but ''heals'' it.
* CoolStarship: Subverted. Kenny's ship is a bus with wings, and we are also treated with a flying Volvo, a rocket-telephone kiosk, and, in TheMovie, a flying garbage dumpster.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Kenny. He spends most of the series acting like a narcissistic idiot, but when things get serious, he really knows how to kick ass. With a hair dryer shooting laser, no less.
** It's not a hair dryer. It's a Hairminator!
* DirtyCop: The local head of police is the kind that complains about not getting a cut of the profits when he "finds" an illegal gambling joint.
* DownInTheDumps: Guess where Kenny's space-bus gets towed after he crash lands it?
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Marcus, despite being quite bland.
** TheLancer: Sofia/Tyrone
** TheSmartGuy: Sofia/Tyrone/Burken
** TheBigGuy: Burken/Kenny
** TheChick: Sofia/Kenny
* HammerSpace / TrouserSpace: Used for pretty much anything except hammers. Syringes, rapiers, ''sausages, bananas...''
** And an orchid!
* HospitalHottie: The aforementioned school nurse plays this pretty straight, except for the fangs and creepy eyes.
* HumanAliens: Played straight, not a single non-human is seen.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Kenny was first released on VHS in 1997, then got into major rights trouble, and wasn't released on DVD until 2006.
* LukeNounverber: Obviously.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane People]]: The kids. Everyone else is either stupid, insane, evil, or a combination of all three.
* PunnyName: The Galaxy Ploice officers that came before Kenny includes a number; Lonny Lowlife, Fatso Butt and Lenny Fartrider are just some of them.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: The nurse.
** The [[spoiler: fake]] girls on SunPlanet also qualify.
* TeleporterAccident: Kenny tries to get out of Marcus's washing-room by teleporter. He gets ''split in half'' and his legs run of.
* WeWillNotHavePocketsInTheFuture: Kenny keeps everything in his toolbelt ala Batman, or strapped to his chest or back.
