Scamicnote  is uh.. erm.. a bizarre Stylistic Suck version of Sonic the Hedgehog created by user MetHurdlenote . The show features surreal takes on all the Sonic characters with butchered names. Despite it's title, the series doesn't follow Scamic, but instead focuses on Mails, the Only Sane Man forced to protect the Jewels of Not Goodness from the evil clutches of Eggnog. It can be best described as Dada meets Sonic the Hedgehog.

After the first three episodes, the show entirely ditches it's original premise. Nowadays the show is about Mails (forcibly) going on insanely absurd adventures that often end with no resolution, something exploding, and someone, or more likely, everyone, dying. The adventures range from menial problems like getting stuck on the couch, having a nightmare, or getting a new phone to infiltrating furry conventions, fighting an army of skeletons, or getting lost in an endless dimension of hallways.

After fifty episodes, the show seemingly concluded with "Future", a Distant Finale-type episode where we see all the characters in the future. However a month later new episodes began to mysteriously release. Something is off according to the descriptions but nothing yet has been fuly revealed.

Scamic contains examples of:

  • Advertised Extra: One would think that this show would star Scamic, due to the Protagonist Title and appearing prominently in the first trailer. But nope. He's a Living Prop and the show mainly focuses on Mails.
  • All Just a Dream / Or Was It a Dream?: One episode has Mails trapped in a neverending nightmare. When he wakes up, he's glad that it was all just a dream. Cue Eggnog saying "Or was it?" followed by all of his dream characters crashing through his roof. Then the episode suddenly ends.
  • And I Must Scream: #58 loses his ability to move after he crash lands into a field. Nobody bothers to fix him, leaving him stranded.
  • Ax-Crazy: Ame is more than willing to kill anyone that stands in her way. Eggnog and his army learn this the hard way.
  • Bad Boss: Eggnog is this to #58. He has routinely shown in several episodes that he doesn't give a crap about him and will more often than not use him as a weapon or a meat shield.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Seems to be a running theme with this show.
    • Eggnog succeeds in getting the Jewels of Not Goodness in both episodes one and two.
      • Averted much more often after that however.
    • Ame succeeds in forcing Mails to become her boyfriend in episode four and manages to slaughter Eggnog's entire army against her in the season finale.
      • In season two's Escape the Couch, she glues Mails to the couch and kidnaps him.
    • Kirby ultimately kills Marx, and later Mails, with no punishment.
  • Back for the Finale: Practically everyone returns for at least a background cameo in "Future".
  • Bears Are Bad News: Eggnog at the last minute is suddenly mauled to death by a bear for no real reason in one episode.
  • Big Bad: Eggnog is supposedly this, but immediately loses this role when Ame makes her debut. Showing that she's much more terrifying and competent than him.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Happens once in a blue moon when the episode isn't a total Downer Ending.
  • Bookends: A title variant. Episode one is called "Jewel Thief" and episode ten, the season finale, is called "Jewel Thief II".
    • A more subtle one. "Home Invasion" ends with 58 crashing into Mails' house from the Death Egg. "Jewel Thief II" has 58 crashing into the Death Egg from the ground.
  • Butt-Monkey
    • Mails. On so many occasions his life is made hell by Eggnog and/or some other insane character. Not to mention that his deaths are an extremely common occurence.
    • Eggnog himself is a frequent one. He often goes through the most humiliating deaths this show has to offer. Whether it be being crushed by a giant dildo, suddenly exploding, or getting mauled to death by a bear.
    • Motobug #58 doesn't fare much better either. All of his appearances (sans "Spider Situation") ends with him being greviously maimed or killed.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Eggnog shows shades of this in later episodes.
  • Continuity Cavalcade:
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Ame effortlessly cuts through Eggnog's entire army in "Jewel Thief II".
  • A Day In The Lime Light
    • Furry Convention mainly follows 58 as he disguises himself as a furry with Mails and Eggnog having relatively minor roles.
    • Surgery Circus entirely takes place in Ame's perspective when she accidentaly hospitalizes Mails and decides to become a doctor.
    • "Analyzed" has Mails and Eggnog absent and instead focuses on 58 and Ame.
  • Demoted to Extra: Scamic is nearly absent or barely seen in every episode starting on the second half of the first season.
  • Downer Ending: Every episode is likely to end on one, if not, it likely verges on No Ending.
    • In both "Jewel Thief" and "Home Invasion" Eggnog wins while Mails is killed.
    • "Ame" ends with Eggnog dead, and Mails stuck with Ame in the middle of Russia.
    • "An Anime Love Story" has everyone dead in the wedding hall while 58 is still stranded in the middle of nowhere, completely immobile.
    • "Furry Convention" has 58 gunned down by Sam under the belief that he is an ill dog.
    • "Star Allies" Kirby devours everyone.
    • "The Hero's Return" has Mails forcibly brought back to his crazy life and is promptly killed along with his friends.
    • "Escape the Couch" Mails is subjected to "butt stuff" by Ame.
    • "Blizzard!" has Eggnog's christmas party ruined by the Death Egg's self-destruction sequence.
    • "Nightmare in 97" ends with the titular monster killing everyone.

    • "The Pass" has Mails dead, again, and Eggnog executed.
    • "Phone" is a classic Kill 'Em All ending.
    • "Closet" Mails and Eggnog die in the closet while 58 remains none the wiser.
    • "Mountain" ends with Mails, Eggnog, and 58 due to each other's incompetence.
    • "Australia Fires" has Eggnog and 58 trapped in Hell for all eternity as Australia continues to burn.
    • "Coronavirus" is yet again another Kill 'Em All ending.
    • "Sirens" has the titular creatures succeeding their goal of eating everyone.
    • "Tolerance" and "Pirate" both end with Mails being on the recieving end of a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
    • "Eggnog vs. Ame" Mails ends up in the hospital after the battle while Eggnog loses the match.
    • "150 Subscribers Special" ends with Mails and Eggnog murdered by the turtle.
    • "The Visitor" has the Grim Reaper successfully harvesting the souls of Eggnog, Mails, and Ame.
    • "Hospital Chase": Mails is caught by the creditors and they proceed to break all his bones.
    • "Affair": Eggnog is tricked by Ame into killing himself. Though he kinda deserved it.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The pilot is the only episode to actually use Sonic sprites. Every episode after uses real life images. Also character designs for Scamic and Mails look slightly different.
  • Extra-Long Episode: Most episodes are around 3-5 minutes. However there have been a few noticeably longer episodes:
    • Ame downplays this, as it is only two extra minutes longer, however it does serve as Ame's debut episode.
    • Jewel Thief II and The End are much more longer episodes and they have a much more grander scale than most others. Justified though, as they serve as season finales.
    • "Scamic Begins" is an eight-minute long Whole Episode Flashback that deals with origins of every character.
    • "Future" is a ten-minute Series Fauxnale.
  • Enemy Mine: "Ame" and "Jewel Thief II" has Mails working with Eggnog to take down Ame. Only once does it work.
  • Everything Explodes Ending: "An Anime Love Story" ends with Eggnog's wedding reception devolving into a chaotic battle arena. One particular badnik places a bomb in the room, causing the whole building to explode. Killing Mails, Eggnog, Sam, and Ame in the proccess.
  • Halfway Plot Switch: The 150 Subscriber Special starts off with your typical-Scamic hijinks — only for it to turn into a Slasher-flick with Mails and Eggnog running away from The Mad Pooper.
  • Harmless Villain: Subverted with Eggnog. Despite being acting like a Friendly Enemy and is usually incompetent, his sheer stupidity and insane plans causes chaos and destruction to wherever he goes.
  • Heist Episode: "The Nugget Heist" is about Eggnog breaking into a McDonald's to quench his nugget thirst.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Sam is among the many people that are repulsed by Eggnog's marriage with a pillow. However during the final scene, you can briefly see Sam running around, holding another body pillow.
  • Karma Houdini: The first two episodes ends with Eggnog getting the Jewels of Not Goodness and managing to kill Mails.
    • Ame is a more straighter example. In both of her major appearances she suffers no repercussions for harassing Mails and slaughtering several people.
  • Karmic Death: Much of Eggnog's deaths verge on this.
    • Ame is a zig-zagged example. She frequently suffers no comeuppance for her vile actions in her episodes, while in episodes where she does nothing wrong, ends up dying.
  • Kill 'Em All: Blizzard! and Courtroom Conundrum are episodes that has all the main characters die.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Episode 3 is a giant one for Eggnog. The past two episodes has Eggnog winning while also killing Mails. This time however, Mails gets his revenge on Eggnog by shooting him. He then lampshades this.
  • Living Prop: Scamic stands motionlessly in nearly every episode.
  • Lower-Deck Episode: "Analyzed" is about 58 trying to help Ame, with Mails and Eggnog being absent and only loosely mentioned.
  • Megaton Punch: The climax of the final battle in "Jewel Thief II" has Ame kicking 58 so hard that he crashes into the Death Egg and causes it to explode. Which according to the timecard shown right after it, kills thousands of people.
  • Mind Screw: Everything in episode three, Phone Sex.
  • Negative Continuity: People will die, buildings will explode, and relationships will be destroyed in every episode. However, the next episode always resets everything back to normal.
  • No Ending: Happens frequently. Most notably in episode four, where the episode suddenly ends with Eggnog dead, and the implication that Mails is going to have a car-sized dildo shoved up in his ass by Ame.
  • Once an Episode
    • Almost every episode has someone dying or something exploding — usually both.
    • People (usually Eggnog or Ame) crashing into Mails' living room or disrupting his quiet time.
  • Only Sane Man: Mails is the most prominent one, often being caught in the insanity that is his world.
    • When the episode doesn't focus on Mails, Motobug #58 and Sam are most likely there to take his role.
  • Only the Leads Get a Happy Ending: How the show possibly ends in The End, Mails and the rest of his "friends" are safe and they have a movie marathon back at the house, while everyone else is either dead or missing.
  • Out of Focus: Ame and Sam in season two.
  • Pet the Dog: Eggnog seems genuinely saddened by the fact that everyone is killed by Ame (sans Mails, whom was spared) in the season finale.
  • Random Events Plot: Episodes One, Two, Three, and Nine, don't really have much of plot.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Parodied. Mails says to Eggnog how he has a well established pet bear named Boris. Eggnog immediately questions this before getting mauled to death by the latter.
  • Running Gag
  • Running Gagged: Mails finally wises up and gets a roof strong enough that no one would be able to destroy it in Courtroom Conundrum. Subverted later on however.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: 58 and Ame, two very major characters, are not shown in any of the three trailers.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Ame and Sam, while not as frequent as the rest of the male cast, get their share of injuries and deaths.
  • Story Arc: Starting with "A Scamic Christmas Chronicle", Mails goes on a holiday vacation and is Put on a Bus. We see how all the other characters manage without him through various Lower-Deck Episode(s). Then, with "Coronavirus", we see how Mails is doing with everyone else Put on a Bus.
  • Stylistic Suck: Static images moving around (usually) in real life backgrounds.
  • Surreal Humor
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: Everyone.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Oh boy.. Absolutely no one is safe from this trope. Damn near every episode has the main characters (or at least some of them) dying in some weird fashion. Mainly through explosions or gun fire.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone
    • "Spider Situation" gets the special ranking of being the only episode where none of the main characters are killed or seriously injured.
    • After spending the whole series suffering, Jewel Thief II ends with Mails getting a relatively happy ending, at the cost of everyones elses lives.
    • The End is the next (and possibly last) episode to have all the characters alive and well-off (as in no one is screwed over by the end) and Mails invites everyone to his house to watch movies.
  • Token Human: Sam. She's the only recurring human in the show.
  • Wedding Episode: The bulk of episode 5 takes place in Eggnog's wedding, where he marries a body pillow.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Mails lives to have insane stuff happen to him. And it's quite obvious that he hates every second of it.
  • Villain Episode: Quite a number of episodes focus on Eggnog, with Mails taking a backseat.
