Fridge / Alfred J. Kwak

Go To

Fridge Brilliance

  • It seems so weird that Dolf begins to wear shoes in the second season. But what does Dolf use to cover his real beak colour? Shoe polish.

Fridge Logic

  • Being an unclothed jellyfish, where exactly does Lispel keep all the money he gets for his services? For that matter, where did he keep the bottle of termites he was supposed to use to sabotage the Sea Wolf?
    • Ass Shove maybe? Since he can talk normally, they can't be in his mouth.
  • In "The White Queen", Dolf taunts Alfred at the end that he can't prove that he tried to steal the Queen's crown, since they're just in one of Alfred's dreams, which he figured out the moment Alfred stepped into the bar that Dolf and his friends were hanging out in. If it's just a dream, and Dolf knew this why would he try to steal an imaginary crown that wouldn't be worth anything?
    • If it's a dream, then this is in Alfred's subconscious. And so we must conclude that Alfred already knows deep down that Dolf is a villain. The dream Dolf is just telling Alfred what he already knows, while throwing him for a loop by telling him it's a dream, because Alfred is himself confused about what is reality.

  • After seeing Pikkie lose his mind over a key, why do his friends still allow him within snatching distance of the royal treasures without even keeping an eye on him?

Fridge Horror

  • Krabnagel disappears from the series entirely after episode 13, when he is arrested after shooting at several police officers. Given the strict laws in Great Waterland at the time, it's quite possible he was sentenced to death shortly after.
  • In Alfred's world, herring and other fish are still caught and eaten by other animals despite being sentient. Imagine the horror fishermen go through on a daily basis as the loads of herring that they catch scream and beg for mercy...
  • K. Rokodil is married to a hen. They seem very happy, but if she ever displeased him, he could probably dispatch her with one bite.
  • In episode 6, the apothecary is a vulture.

  • Only thing left from Alfred's family in second episode was the shoe.
  • Every animal species, including bugs and sea animals, have the sapience and emotional complexity of a human being. Consider what kind of horrible cannibal dystopia implications their society must entail.
