Superwog revolves around the misadventures of teenager Theo, his long-suffering mate Johnny and his weird parents.

Originally starting out as a series of Youtube skits in 2008, Superwog soon became a live comedy tour before eventually being greenlit for a television series in 2018. In 2021 Superwog gained a second series.


Tropes:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Theo and Johnny dab themselves with phereomens to attract the ladies. It turns out the pheremones only work on old women.
  • Adults Are Useless: Wog Mum does nothing to settle the conflict between Theo and Wog Dad, often just screaming hysterically or doing stereotypical housewife things.
  • Affably Evil: Theo and Johnny are tasked by the police with performing a sting operation on a crime boss. Said crime boss is incredibly friendly and when the two get a good look at his criminal activities they come to the conclusion that he's a modern-day Robin Hood.

  • All for Nothing: Theo and Wog Dad find out their previous home's owner hid some treasure in the Blue Mountains. The two race each other to get there first, only for some American tourists to get to it.
  • A Man Is Always Eager: Theo, since he's a teenager. His dad gets blue balls in one episode because Wog Mum said no to him just once.
  • Attractive Zombie: During the zombie outbreak episode, Theo very nearly endangers himself by copping a feel of a zombie woman's heaving tits.
  • Ax-Crazy: Wog Dad is perpetually angry and prone to violent outbursts.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Theo helps out an elderly widow once and she repays him with food. A lot of food. A suspicious amount of food. Eventually it's revealed that she'd poisoned her own husband and was planning to do the same to Theo and Johnny.
  • Black Comedy Animal Cruelty:
    • Theo deals with a territorial magpie by chopping down the tree it was nested in said magpie starts roosting outside Theo's house, with dozens of other magpies.

    • Theo disposes of some suspicious food by feeding it to a flock of seagulls and an ibis. They all drop dead from food poisoning.
  • The Chew Toy: Wog Dad takes a lot of physical punishment, though given his terrible people skills it's not hard to see why he might deserve it.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: When Theo disowns his dad and lives with a foster family, he manages to turn their son against his boring mother and domineering father.
  • Fan Disservice: That Attractive Zombie mentioned above? Her boob comes off in Theo's hand.
  • "Fawlty Towers" Plot: Theo farts in his car and is too embarrassed to give a hot girl a lift. When she calls him out on it he tries to save face by telling her his grandmother was in hospital and he had to rush to see her. It turns out she lives right next to the hospital, so Theo has to further elaborate on the lie to keep her in the dark. Things only further spiral out of his control until Theo and Johnny end up endangering a bedridden old lady in front of said girl.
  • Gasshole: Theo and Johnny eat some chiko rolls and the impact it has on their bowels compels them to hotbox Theo's car. To Theo's shock, a hot girl asks if she can hitch a ride with them after they've stunk up the car. It turns out that same girl actually has a fart fetish, which Theo finds out all too late.
  • Incompetence, Inc.: When Theo goes to hospital to have a lump checked, he's beset on all sides by some a series of airheads whose medical credentials are dubious at best. By the end of the episode he's had his big toe removed.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Pretty much all of the female cast is played by attractive women who dress provocatively. The only exceptions being women old enough to be grandmas and Wog Mum (because she's played by Theodore Saidden).
  • The Napoleon: Wog Dad is shorter than Theo and is a foul-tempered lout who can't be civil for more than a second.
  • Only Sane Man: Johnny is fully aware that most of Theo's schemes are terrible ideas and isn't afraid to tell him, but always gets suckered into them regardless.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: In the very first episode, Wog Dad smashes Theo's bedroom door in and loudly threatens to destroy him with his penis. Theo immediately reports his dad for domestic abuse and due to Wog Dad's temperament is forced to undergo intensive rehabilitation, meanwhile Theo is moved to a foster family.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Theo and his dad both lack any real people skills and will resort to illegal activities to get what they want
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Theo's parents talk with ambiguously foreign accents that don't give any hints to their heritage.
