Mokey's Show is a webseries created by Sr. Pelo which parodies Mickey Mouse. All of the videos are nonsensical in nature. The videos follow our titular hero along with his friends Dilan and Grooby, his girlfriend Momi (pronounced "Moh-mee"), and his archenemy Put (pronounced "Poot") as they do things like celebrating Christmas, going to the beach, and smoking weed. Usually while being really loud while still managing to be entertaining. All of the episodes can be found right here.

Also check out The Dolan Webcomic series featuring Morky, Dolan, and Gooby to see the first parody characters, which inspired Sr. Pelo's own Disney parody series.

OH BOY!! TROPES!

  • Acid-Trip Dimension: Mokey sees one after he ate the weed instead of smoking it in "420".
  • Amusing Injuries: All over the place.
  • April Fools' Plot: The aptly-named April Fools Day episode has Mokey and his friends pulling pranks on him until Mokey shoots them both and realizes too late he used a real gun.
  • Ax-Crazy: Mokey, who's willing to flip out at the drop of a hat. In the Halloween 2016 episode, he nearly shoots his friends again after freaking out at the sight of Dilan's Exorcist mask.
    • Momi becomes such in "Is Not Christmas",
  • Berserk Button: DO NOT shoot at The Sun.
  • Big Bad: Put is usually the main antagonist of the episodes he appears in.
  • Brick Joke:
    • "Missed Christmas" has one; Momi threatening Dilan to call famous chef Romrom Gramsay to kill him. Unfortunately, Mokey is able to turn this on Momi when his Krima Spirit is restored, calling Gramsay to kidnap Momi and use her as a turkey on his cooking show.

    • In "The Sun", Mokey, Grooby and Dilan try to shield themselves from the titular Sun by standing on a post's shadow. When the Sun gets furious at Mokey and decides to destroy the Earth, Mokey, Grooby and Dilan survive by standing under the same shadow.
  • Butt-Monkey: Absolutely no one is safe from getting beaten up in this show, not even Santa Claus or Jesus Christ.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "OH BOY!!" for Mokey.
    • "AHHH-hyug" for Grooby.
    • “I’m gonna call the police” for Momi
  • The Cameo: In some videos, Mokey will encounter a long line full of assorted characters whom he beats up one by one to get to the front. These characters are usually picked from Twitter threads where Pelo requests his viewers to post their Original Characters to be animated as this.
    • One such instance is in "The Sun", where all of them are waiting for ice cream. Some of the notable people in the line are Pyrocynical, Scribblejuice, Jesus Christ, Shadman, Pelo, and Reimu.
    • In "Is Not Christmas", John Cena appears to do an elbow drop on Mokey (but you can't see him when he does so). Susan Wojcicki makes an appearance when Mokey heads to the HQ of YouTube itself for help. PewDiePie also appears as a smoke grenade thrown by Momi.

    • Another long line appears in "Painful Christmas".
    • In "Contagious Christmas", Mokey effortlessly defeats Cirno simply by lightly punching her in the chest, which somehow makes her entire upper body explode. Later, after Mokey defeats COVID-19 by wearing a mask, Reimu and Marisa are among those applauding him, and Gendo and Asuka congratulate him.
    • "There is no virus" has X and Zero show up near the end to fight the Sigma Coronavirus. Zero proceeds to re-enact Mega Man X5 by spontaneously dying from Sigma.
  • Cycle of Hurting: In "Is Not Christmas", Momi, whose spine has been turned into a boomerang by Mokey, rolls up the staircase, then slips on a banana peel on the top. She then falls down the stairs and slips on another banana peel at the bottom, which sends her rolling upwards the staircase again before ending up on a wheelchair.
  • Degraded Boss: The "Krima" or Krimah Demon, initially these demons are treated as unique enemies, but in "A Christmas Hope" they are simply the foot soldiers/ Mooks of the Krampus army.
  • Deranged Animation: Why of course!
  • Dirty Cop: In "425 - Math", a policeman gives Mokey and Grooby meth and encourages them to cooperate with a possible drug dealer.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: The earlier Christmas episodes usually end with the devil coming in and ruining Christmas by slapping everyone to death.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Momi attempts this twice; first in "Is Not Christmas" where she tortures Mokey on the account of being not Christmas yet, and then in "Missed Christmas" where she changes the date of the calendar to trick Mokey into missing it. Both attempts failed miserably.
  • Driven to Suicide: In "Contagious Christmas", Momi is forced to stay inside for quarantine. Knowing she can't go outside to escape Mokey and his Christmas shenanigans, she enters a room with a noose and prepares to hang herself... until she gets hit with a mug by Mokey, who doesn't have Christmas spirit yet.
  • Drugs Are Bad: After "422" (an episode about cocaine) is done, Sr Pelo says that drugs are bad and you shouldn't do it. ... Only to realize he's a cartoon. Cut to the real life Sr Pelo doing cocaine. (Actually flour, but still.)
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: The first video to feature Mokey was a 20-second video called Welcome to Disnehy. It had no plot to speak of, it was just Mokey, Grooby, and Dilan saying their catchphrases and generally acting weird, and ending with a clip from Disney's Magical Quest. Also, Mokey's voice was deeper in this video, and he doesn't scream.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: In "The Sun", the titular Sun gets furious when Mokey shots at him, and destroys the Earth. Mokey, Grooby and Dilan survive by standing under the shadow. Mokey kind of lampshades the absurdity of this:
    Mokey: Ohh boy, IT WORKED!
  • Enforced Plug: The Christmas 2016 episode suddenly turns into Mokey plugging the Loot Crate deal Pelo had gotten before Mokey shows up to get help.
  • The Face of the Sun: "The Sun" depicts it as both looking and acting sadistic.
  • Flipping the Bird: In the Halloween Episode, Mokey does this to Momi when she tells him and his friends that they're too old to go trick-or-treating.
    Mokey: Momi? I think you are blind.
    Momi: BLIND?! I am not blind Mokey!
    Mokey: Yes you are, Momi. You can't see.
    Momi: SEE?!?! SEE WHAT MOKEY?!
    Mokey: (flipping the bird) THIS, BETCH!!!
  • Fun with Subtitles: His subtitles that he (or other people) make can be entertaining to read.
  • Gainax Ending: Almost all the episodes end on this, or No Ending at all.
    • The 2020 Christmas episode references this trope by having Gendo and Asuka show up to congratulate Mokey after he drives off COVID-19 by wearing a mask.
  • The Grinch: Momi hates Christmas and she attempted to ruin it for Mokey twice in "Is Not Christmas" and "Missed Christmas". Considering all the crap Mokey's put her during that holiday every year, it's hard to blame her.
    Momi: (sobbing) I hate Christmas! You always hitting me, it's always the SAME! "Christmas! Christmas!" I'm TIRED. I'M TIRED OF EVERYTHING-
    Mokey: SHUT UP! (breaks Momi's neck)
  • Groin Attack:
    • The Sigma variant of the coronavirus kills people by grabbing their crotches, apparently.
    • Momi does this to Grooby and later Dilan in "Missed Christmas". However, by the time she does it again to Grooby, he doesn't react in pain as much as he likes it.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It's not hard to anger Momi. Mokey angering her by just calling her blind is an example.
  • Heat Wave: "The Sun" revolves around this.
  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: Mokey accidentally shoots both of his friends with what he thought was a fake gun.
  • Interrupted Suicide: In "Missed Christmas", Mokey almost jumps out off a cliff over his despair of missing Christmas, but is saved by Dilan and Grooby who reveal that Momi lied to him.
  • Jerkass: Mokey acts like an asshole quite often. If it's not him being a prick, it's Momi and Put.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Mokey is constantly cruel to his girlfriend Momi, which would be pretty horrible if it were not because she is even worse than him.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The Fruit Man and Krampus could count as this.
  • Loudness War/ Sensory Abuse: YES.
  • Manchild: Mokey in the (Way Before) Christmas and Halloween 2016 episodes. He believes Santa is real, gets way too excited about Trick-or-Treating and Christmas, freaks out when things go wrong, and generally acts well below his normal age.
  • Malaproper: Starting from "423 - Lost Sass Day", the "420" episodes intentionally misspells the name of the featured drug and starts the plot around that. For example, misspelling "meth" as "math" and making Mokey, Dilan, and Grooby smart, having big brains and all.
  • Marijuana Is LSD: The weed in "420" causes him to enter an Acid-Trip Dimension.
  • Nightmare Face: The faces the characters make in later episodes become more and more grotesque.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: If you choose NO in the video Slunder Mokey will stare at the viewer for a few seconds then it will change into a page that says HELP ME, nothing else happens in the video.
  • Non-Standard Character Design:
    • Santa and Jesus are static images taken from old-timey illustrations such as one would see on a holiday card.
    • Krampus, who is more smoothly animated than the other characters.
    • The "normal people" in "An Abnormal Halloween" are stock photos of people. They can move by sliding around, but otherwise have no animation at all.
  • Pet the Dog: In "There is no virus", Mokey repeatedly warns friends about Covid-19 and was genuinely devastated devastated over their deaths.
  • Police Are Useless: In "Mokey's Show - April Fool's Day", the police don't take Momi's call to them about Mokey trying to kill her seriously because of the date.
  • Puff of Logic: Put does this Santa in It's too early for Christmas! Negating what would have been Santa's Big Damn Heroes moment. He later attempts to do it on Jesus but is Killed Mid-Sentence. Jesus then makes Santa return by stating he is Real After All.
  • Pun: In "There Is No Virus", the news announces a new "sigma" coronavirus variant. Cue Sigma.
  • Refuge in Audacity: The 9/11 episode. The crisis is averted because the plane misses one of the Twin Towers by a mile... Until Momi blows up.
  • Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue...: A Valentine Mokey gives to Momi begins with this, and ends with, "FUCK YOU".
  • Running Gag: Momi calling the police.
    • Whenever Grooby introduces Mokey to a modified drug, Mokey says that said drug is very very bad, and a gross-up shows on his face whenever he shouts the word bad.
    • Mokey abusing Momi on Christmas.
    • In "Missed Christmas", a clip of a car crashing and crushing children is repeatedly shown in scenes involving a car (excluding its final appearance, when it's simply Mokey about to abuse Momi). Note 
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: "BOOM!" and "SHOOSH!"
  • "Scooby-Doo" Hoax: Parodied in the two Halloween episodes. In the first, Put turns out to be dressing as the monstrous Fruit Man...but then Momi turns out to be a disguise worn by a real Fruit Man. In the second, Grooby dresses up as the threat to get back at Mokey for turning down trick-or-treating. Mystery Inc. themselves even appear in the latter!
  • Servile Snarker: Momi's butler in "Thanksgiving" goes beyond this, being foul-mouthed and outright disrespectful to her while doing his job.
  • Smash Cut: Used a lot.
  • Shout-Out:
    • To The Shining in the April Fools Day episode.
    • The Halloween Episode opens with Mokey shouting part of the lyrics to "This is Halloween".
    • In "Is Not Christmas", Mokey makes a reference to Fist of the North Star before defeating Momi.
      Mokey: Omae wa... MOU SHINDEIRU.
      Momi: Què?
      Mokey: (Grabs Momi's ear and twists it) KRIMAH!
      (Momi screams in pain)
  • Spoonerism: In "Halloween", Put calls Mokey "the Mucking Fouse".
  • Sudden Downer Ending: Mokey almost never has happy endings. Just when it seems like the video is going to end well, something terrible happens (often Mokey and his friends getting killed by the police, demons, or something else.)
  • Suicide Attack: Momi performs this in the 9/11 episode.
  • Superhero Episode: The "420" episode on heroin, "426 - Superhero" takes the pun and as the title suggests has the episode be such, in which Mokey, Dilan, and Grooby use the drug (represented by actual heroines in the form of The Powerpuff Girls) to get superpowers.
  • Stylistic Suck: Pelo's artistic talents tend to not manifest in the series' usual art style, but rather in Mokey and friends' facial expressions.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: The "normal people" in "An Abnormal Halloween" are voiced by text-to-speech programs rather than by Pelo himself, making them some of the very few characters in all of Pelo's videos that he didn't voice.
  • Take That!:
    • The "Is Not Christmas" episode has one scene making fun of YouTube and Susan Wojcicki for the current state of the said site. It is allegorically shown with her drinking a coffee only to spit out from disgust, order one of her employees to demonetize Mokey when the former enters the HQ, and ban two innocent YouTubers for being "advertiser-unfriendly" shortly after Momi threw the literal PewDiePie gas grenade into the offices. This is also a dig against YouTube's monetization guidelines for being unfair and inconsistent.
    Susan Wojcicki: I like my coffee how I like my site. (takes a drink, then spits out from disgust) PPPFFT!!! (disgusted and upset) THIS IS DISGUSTING!
    • A scene in "Missed Christmas" involves Santa angrily telling a boy to shut up after he says he wants cryptocurrency for Christmas.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: Happens a lot.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: In "Missed Christmas", when Momi tries to stop Grooby from re-instating Mokey's Christmas spirit via groin attack, he No Sells it, and all Momi can do as Mokey rises behind her is pray for her life.
  • The Unintelligible: Dilan, who only makes indistinguishable Donald Duck noises, presumably mocking the real character's hard-to-understand speech. Doesn't stop anyone from having trouble understanding him.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In "Thanksgiving", Dilan's nephew Dick makes fun of Mokey, who was holding a gun to threaten everyone. He later gets shot.
  • Trauma Button: Happens in "Halloween" when Dilan's costume triggers Put's trauma of the Scary Maze Game.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Mokey never hesitates to injure or outright kill Momi.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Everytime Dilan's nephews Suk, Mai, and Dick appear in a short, chances are they're gonna be beaten up mercilessly like the adults. One such instance in "Painful Christmas" where The Ass Beater smacks the triplets twice, and then Mokey eats them.

OOH NOO! THERE'S NO MORE TROPES!
