''King Star King'' is an American animated television series from Creator/AdultSwim, and easily one of their most polarizing shows to date (and that's ''really'' saying something). After losing a pilot contest to ''Übermansion'', the show had 3 seasons and premiered on may 24th before eventually being ScrewedByTheNetwork. The pilot episode aired on [[{{Creator/Toonami}} Toonami]], prompting a ''very'' mixed reaction from the Toonami viewers, who went online to either praise the show or hate it. As a result, ''King Star King'' has a strong {{hatedom}} and an equally as strong {{fandom}}.

The show is perhaps best described as ''[[{{WesternAnimation/Superjail}} Superjail!]]'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on bath salts]]. With its graphic gore, non-stop over-the-top sexism, grotesque drug-fueled surrealism, deviant sexual behavior, and completely random, nonsensical plots, ''King Star King'' is - to put it mildly - definitely not for everyone. Like many other Creator/AdultSwim shows such as ''TheEricAndreShow'' and ''TimAndEricAwesomeShowGreatJob'', ''King Star King'' is about as polarizing as a show can possibly be.

The plot of the pilot episode can be described as such: "The series revolves around the titular character, King Star King (Tommy Blacha): a tall, blond muscular man, who is the king of the flying Rubix cube. Who finds the love of his life, the prince of the moon, Prince Hotty. Who is so hot that EVERYONE wants to have sex with him. But after he trips on a car (really) he falls from his cube to serve as a fry cook in a run-down waffle house in New Jersey called The Shoe. Run by the cowardly ex-baseball player Hank Waffles, The Shoe is a less than desirable place to work. But it is here that King Star King meets the V-Duck who tells him of his cousin, The Super-Wizard, who has the power to get King Star King back to the flying Rubix Cube. So V-Duck turns The shoe into it's creature form and they head off to find the Super-Wizard." the Got all that? It's actually ''even more'' surreal, [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext nonsensical]], and outright ridiculous than it sounds.

sounds. Past the pilot, the heroes encounter Ed G Teen, who wants to kill the Super-Wizard because Ed thinks that the Super-Wizard is stealing his drawings.

After the season 1 finale, King Star King finally meets the Super-Wizard, who grants him access back to the Flying Rubix Cube. It's here that he finally marries Prince Hotty, who is crowned "King 2" of the Flying Rubix Cube. However things aren't all happy, as Hotty's ex-girlfriend, Bloody Blood War, becomes jealous of King Star King and attempts to overthrow him and get back with Hotty.



* AntiHero: King Star King is, to put it mildly, not exactly a role model, and neither are any of his friends. They're still by far the most morally-upright characters on the show, though.
