Web Animation / The Dups

Go To

The Dups was a series of LittleBigPlanet gameplay videos that showcased episodes of Mr. Bob's antics. It was created by Jacob Lenard, best known for creating Mugman (not the one from Cuphead); speaking of which, before he got his own series, Mugman made his first ever appearance in an episode of this show.

The Dups contains the following tropes:

  • Art Shift: A small handful of episodes experimented with actual CGI animation rather than the usual LittleBigPlanet gameplay footage.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ascended Extra: Mugman made his first appearance in this series as a one-shot character before getting his own series.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Here, Mugman is depicted as a mugger (get the joke?) rather than the nice guy he is in his own series.
  • Harmless Villain: Mugman attempts to harm the folks at the coffee shop by throwing mugs at them, only to discover his aim's not very good.
  • Medium Blending: In what few fully-animated, non-LittleBigPlanet episodes were made, the main characters have 2D-animated facial features while everything else is CGI.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Mr. Bob absolutely loves to eat donuts.


How well does it match the trope?
