Nightmare Fuel / Rex the Runt

Go To

The more overly bizarre moments on the show, especially the dream sequences and freak out scenes, often fall into this trope.

  • The Johnny Saveloy episode, where a century-old TV personality/cult leader who happens to be a talking sausage preserves his vitality by stealing the souls of other celebrities, is incredibly dark compared to the rest of the series.
  • Wayne the Zebra (pictured) just.......looks off.
  • Ident, the eponymous character's debut. The humans are much uglier and more grotesque than normal, with their Demitri-esque rotten teeth and phallic appearance, and they fire arrows out of their mouths.
  • The episode "Carbonara" has Rex getting ground up into living, breathing spaghetti and being hunted by Vince, although it's Played for Laughs because the show acknowledges the fact that everyone is made of plasticene.
