Corporate Businessman's Telethon is a written object show. Its premise is about the world's richest chicken, named Clinko, starting a game show to promote his products. But however, it later turns out that the game show is far more sinister than it seems.

Corporate Businessman's Telethon contains examples of:

  • The Ace: Neon Grassy. Has multiple powers including size manipulation, lava endurance, the ability to fly at incredible speeds, the ability to breathe in space, super strength, the ability to fragment space (creating a black hole), and the ability to be used as a portable charger.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Most contestants are named after the objects they are based on...Mostly.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: All of the contestants are either fully object or part-animal, part-object.
  • Asian Speekee Engrish: Paper Lantern, who is Chinese, speaks with broken grammar. However, this is downplayed by her not showing stereotypes that often come with this trope.
  • Audience Participation: As with most object shows, the viewers vote for whatever contestant they want to be eliminated.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Clinko is a rich corporate businessman who has made a child guillotine, subjects his contestants to horrible conditions, and thinks birds are superior to all other species.

  • Funny Animal: Unusual for most object shows, sapient animals exist in the same universe as the object characters.
  • Inherently Funny Words: Many examples. Clinko and Conk to name a pair.
  • Lazy Bum: Maybe. Literally sits around and does nothing for most of the time, and only says maybe. This is contradicted however, when he is ultimately forced to by someone else, because in that case, he will do it.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Paperclip Snake will undergo this at some point in CBT 6B.
  • Mixed Ancestry: According to a short, Flamingo Plush has an animal parent.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: All of the animal characters are drawn with a heavy black outline and don't use the assets objects use.
    • Brown Kind of Flower counts as well, primarily because he's wearing Clothes.
  • Out of Focus: Because of how writing works, It's not uncommon to see some characters Out of Focus in certain episodes, most notably Oxygen, Daisy Flower, Milkshake, and Cat Bell.

  • Palette Swap: Neon Grassy, Yoyle Book, and Daisy Flower are all recolors of Grassy, Book, and Flower from Battle For Dream Island respectively. However, the personality differences exist, for example, Flower acts like a bully to others, while Daisy Flower acts like a hippie.
  • Spin-Off: TBC, or Telethon's Better Competition, was created as a spin-off to CBT to lessen the wait between episodes.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Octagon was the first eliminated, and ergo he didn't get much development afterwards, other than the end of his elimination episode.
    • Doggie Bone, Daisy Flower, and Oxygen also qualify, do to getting little-to-no screentime in episode 2, leading up to their eliminations in the next three episodes respectively.

How well does it match the trope?
