A Series about some high schoolers and their hilariously bizarre and occasionally extremely disturbing antics.

Aaaaaand that's kind of it.

Created by Matthew Engstrom, Calvin Bauer, Logan Derby, and Jack Carmichael, it stars them as they experience all sorts of cheap, shakily-filmed adventures and misadventures featuring all sorts of bizarre and sometimes interesting people.

This Work Contains Sloppily-Organised Examples Of:


  • Awesome Music: "Leo's Place", the theme music for the series.
    • Leo's Place just got replaced by Suburban Tram as the theme, though this may be undone.
    • "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" was well on its way to becoming the Bootstrapped Theme due to its overall significance as the song of Jack's past, Matthew, Logan and Calvin and as a favourite song of some of them. It ended up not holding this status past Season 3.
    • Cloud Kingdom is the newest opening theme, and it will probably take over as the official series theme.
    • An Unmysterious Episode features Hope by Quicksilver Messenger Service played over a slideshow of '60s-esque pictures of everyone who was in the episode being stoned and having a good time.
  • Homage: To Scott Pilgrim, Super Smash Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Assassin's Creed, and so much more. Some of the videos have large portions dedicated to dicking around in certain games.
    • It's like That '70s Show crossed with Jack Ass and set in in 2012-13.
    • "January Made Me Shiver" is a reference to the song "American Pie", and the episode's credits are an obvious homage to Frasier.

    • To date, the songs referenced in the episode titles are:
      • Brave Sir Robin
      • A-Minstreling
      • American Pie
      • Astronomy
      • Subhuman
      • Then Came the Last Days of May
      • 2:00 AM
      • Dazed and Confused (Though it's technically referring to the movie)

  • Bi the Way: Matthew comes out off-screen sometime between "The War On Angelo" and "The Odyssey of Light Man".
    • It only really comes up in a couple of jokes in Season 2 where he hits on Calvin.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Matthew and Calvin go through multiple relationships that start and end off-camera, but feature in a couple of videos.
    • Elise may be returning as Calvin's girlfriend again, but nothing is 100% confirmed as far as actually appearing.
  • Jerk Ass: Everyone, to each other, but it's generally good-natured.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: Nick Chowa is an inverted example. He really doesn't want a lot to do with the four main characters, but they (Eventually, just Matthew) act like he's part of their group.
    • Officially just a guest character as of Season Two.
  • Camp Straight: Matthew. And then he deals with Logan calling him gay, and then he gets mad.
    • He's openly pansexual now, so this no longer applies.
    • He's also no longer camp as of some point in Season 3, maybe Large Ham at most.
  • Funny Foreigner: Azamat. Also doubles as a Cloud Cuckoo Lander.
  • Cast Full of Writers
  • Cool Shades: Matthew starting in Season Three.
  • Left the Background Music On: Most notably in "A Long Day of Night", wherein Matthew Patel's boss music starts playing when Matthew (The cameraman) starts looking at the scene, and continues to quietly play well into the following scenes.
  • The Stoner: Pretty much everyone as of Season III, though it's most noticeable in Calvin.
    • On screen, that is. Karl better exemplifies the trope, and Matthew is almost tied with Calvin, only being beaten out due to Calvin's larger sum of experience.
  • '70s Hair: Matthew in Seasons One and Three, and Calvin in Seasons Two and Three.
  • Butt-Monkey: Calvin seems to be this on-screen, but Matthew's the one who often gets the worst of every situation, though it's often noted that this keeps Meftytjory bound together in its own twisted way.
  • Moment of Awesome: Plenty of examples. The original opening from Season One is used in the episode where Jack and Nick come back.
  • Running Gag: Calvin inflicting self-injury in new and exciting ways starting in Season Four.
