"Mr Coat" (formerly known as "That Fellow In The Coat"), is an online Video Review Show created by Stefan Ellison, now part of the Mr. Coat and Friends site. Originally just a show discussing nostalgic things from the 80s and 90s such as Boy Meets World and Disney Adventures among others, the show's range has expanded to many other varied topics, most notably animated series, feature films, director tributes and providing top 10/11 lists on occasion. Another series in the "That Fellow In The Coat" canon is Character Profiles, in which he analyses a film or television character. His videos can be seen here.


This web series provides examples of:

  • Artifact Title: He doesn't wear a coat much anymore
  • Berserk Button: He very much dislikes it when people call an adaptation of the original work a remake of the earlier film version, especially with Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the 2014 Annie movie. He does make exception to this for films that take more from the earlier movie, like Gus Van Sant's Psycho and the 2003 version of The Italian Job.
  • Canada, Eh?: Not so much anymore and not immediately apparent from his voice, but he has talked about YTV shows and once made a joke about the 2011 postal strike, which would be lost on his American audience.
  • Crossover: With Pan Pizza in his Raven episode of Character Profile.
  • Deadpan Snarker: More deadpan than snarky, but he still makes a few sarcastic quips.

  • Musical Episode: This video
  • Precision F-Strike: Typically avoids swearing, but has used some light words like "damn" and "hell". He's also called one particular Oscar decision "the most dickish move". However, in his slam on the Animated Adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, he makes this bleeped comment about how the show revived the Wicked Witch:
    There's magic, and then there's bullshit. This. Is bullshit.
    • (However, if you look close enough you can see he doesn't actually say the word).
  • Shared Universe: Because of numerous camoes, he's part of the Reviewaverse.
  • Something Completely Different: His Top 11 Cheeses and Chocolates video.


How well does it match the trope?
