Short Three: "Little Cake of Horrors"

This episode provides examples of:

Overall:

The Weird Couple:

  • Adopted to the House: Dizzy gets washed out of his cave by a rainstorm and goes to live at Hamton's house, staying there for two months.
  • Advertisement:
  • Banana Peel: Hamton slips on one when he picks up the rest that Dizzy throws on the floor while eating bananas.
  • Here We Go Again!: When Dizzy refuses to go back to his cave, he launches Hamton out of his house, and Hamton lands in his cave. Hamton decides to live there, until Dizzy comes up to him and says, "Dizzy lonely.".
  • Laugh Track: "The Weird Couple was filmed before a live audience."
  • Literal-Minded: When Hamton gets stuck in the trash can, he tells Dizzy to give him a hand. Dizzy applauds him.
  • Shout-Out: To The Odd Couple, with Hamton and Dizzy in the roles of Felix and Oscar, respectively.
  • Stylistic Suck: The title card for this short is drawn crudely in crayon.
  • That Came Out Wrong: When Hamton is chiding Dizzy for his eating habits:
    Hamton: Don't be such a pig! Uh, I mean, uh, don't be such a hog! No, no, no! I mean, save some for me!
  • Advertisement:
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: Hamton certainly sees Dizzy as this.
    Hamton: Isn't your stupid cave dried out by now?
    Dizzy: What cave?
  • Time Skip: In between the scene before the title card and the cartoon proper, it skips ahead two months, where Hamton is fed up with having Dizzy for a housemate.

The Return of the Toxic Revenger:

  • Angry Guard Dog: Muffin the dog.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Montana Max, whose factory pollutes the skies to make donut holes. He sums himself up best in song;
    "I'm rich, rich, rich, rich, rich, and I don't care!
    I'm the richest kid on Earth beyond compare!
    I'll turn the sky to trash if I can make some cash,
    I'm rich, rich, rich rich, who said life is fair?"
  • Crazy-Prepared: This short ends with the donut hole formula creating a giant donut hole that sucks up everything, including the universe. Fortunately, Plucky happened to have a spare Universe on him in case something like this happened.
  • Deranged Animation: David Feiss's animation in this short counts as this, often being similar to his Cow and Chicken series he'd eventually create for Cartoon Network.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Monty's guard dog is named "Muffin".
  • Green Aesop: An anti-pollution aesop.
  • Out of Order: "Duck in the Muck" from the episode "Strange Tales of Weird Science" is actually the debut of Plucky as the Toxic Revenger, but due to this trope, the sequel short to that one wound up airing more than 10 episodes ahead of it.
  • Portable Hole: Monty's factory makes these.
  • Tempting Fate: At one point, Plucky says, "If only I could get to the heart of the operations, I could shut Max down!". Sure enough, Plucky is standing in front of a door labelled, HEART OF OPERATIONS.
  • Unplanned Crossdressing: Plucky spins around real fast to change into his superhero costume. However, the first time he tries it, he ends up in a blonde wig and red dress.
    "Oops. Last year's Halloween party."

Little Cake of Horrors:

  • All Just a Dream: Much of this short's events are revealed to be a dream of Hamton's.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: When Hamton is rinsing chocolate out of his mouth from a pump, two nonanthropomorphic pigs comment on how they don't get why he likes clean water.
  • Berserk Board Barricade: Hamton locks the cake in a room this way to avoid eating it. Unfortunately, the cake appears in various pictures he passes by.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: When Hamton is about to blow the cake up, it protests that it isn't in his nature. Hamton retorts that everyone has a bit of viciousness in them.
  • Brick Joke: After Dizzy eats Hamton's cake, he says, "But me still hungry! Me hungry since act one!".
  • Didn't Think This Through: Hamton tries to blow up the cake with dynamite candles, until the cake points out that when the dynamite explodes, the kitchen will be a huge mess.
  • Diet Episode: For Hamton.
  • Disney Villain Death: Hamton tosses the cake off a cliff to get rid of it. It somehow ends up landing on him back at his house.
  • Dynamite Candle: Hamton tries to use these on the cake to destroy it, until the cake points out the mess that the dynamite will make in the kitchen if it explodes.
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: When Hamton gets on his bathroom scale, it has such a difficult time measuring his weight that it breaks. This is what convinces Hamton to go on a diet.
  • Shout-Out: The title references Little Shop of Horrors. The evil cake's refrain of "eat me" also parodies Audrey II's famous "feed me" catchphrase.
  • Villain Has a Point: When the cake points out that the dynamite exploding will make a huge mess of Hamton's kitchen:
    Hamton: I hate it when he's right.
