Technicolor OCT is an Original Character Tournament, taking place on the Terrace, where favorite Toons of different sizes and shapes live. Or at least, where some of them used to live. Toons have been disappearing; when a toon is forgotten, they vanish into thin air (or by paint thinner). The Mayor of the Terrace, Babbit the Rabbit, announced that she has new colors for the toons, which will give them a chance to shine once more. Sadly, there isn't enough for everyone; to get those colors, you must enter to gain them, while fighting opponents who are after that grand prize.
After the conclusion of the original tournament, a second season has begun, taking place in the city of Metropolis. Several years have passed, and Mayor Battsie of Metropolis has begun a tournament of her own, offering the winner's cartoon a primetime television slot. Color is now freely available, but toons must instead contend with The Hays Code. Those who fail to adhere to the code disappear, returning a few days later, changed.

This OCT provides examples of:
- Art-Style Dissonance: The tournament takes place in a bouncy cartoon world, but the story is much darker than that might lead you to think.
- Genre Throwback: The characters of this OCT are styled after the Inkblot Cartoon Style and Rubber Hose Limbs, but with a darker twist.
The rounds provide examples of
- Mime and Music-Only Cartoon: It's encouraged that the contests emulate this as a way to get in touch with their roots, but it's not required.
- Those Wacky Nazis: In the first round. Here, taking place on a propaganda set, the contestants must be quiet while fighting, otherwise these Nazi guys may come after them.
