Balloon Loons is an animated web series following a group of party performing balloon animals. The series was created by Connor Murphy and consists of nine episodes (along with two pilot episodes). It will be released on YouTube in Winter 2015. The show's official page can be found here.
Balloon Loons contains examples of:
- Aerith and Bob: The majority of the balloon characters are named after the animal they shape, besides Steve who is just a traditional round balloon.
- Affectionate Nickname: Steve calls Elephant "Ellie" and "E" in "Class of 1985 High School Reunion."
- Animal Stereotypes: Dinosaur goes extinct, Duck and his entourage have a taste for breadcrumbs, and Dog is overly loyal.
- Black Comedy
- Brick Joke: Whoopee Cushion.
- Cerebus Syndrome
- Chekhov's Gun: The karaoke machine.
- Class Reunion: The Balloon Loons perform at one in "Class of 1985 High School Reunion."
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Dinosaur can be an example of this.
- Foreshadowing: The sharpie written on Elephant's face in "Little Hewey's 10th Birthday Bash" is decidedly villainous.
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Each episode's title derives from whatever event the Balloons are at.
