There's always a story behind the story.

sillypplproductions2 is a YouTube channel that began in 2012 with multiple videos showing the behind-the-scenes craziness at Hero Factory (even though it doesn't quite look the part), and grew to show the Toa and Matoran's interactions with the Heroes. Almost every event that occurs can be expected to go hilariously wrong. Almost no exceptions.

The channel is available here.


This channel provides examples of:

  • 24-Hour Armor: Justified, since all the Heroes should be running out and defeating villains all the time, there's no need to take it off. Plus, they can't in the first place.
  • Accidental Misnaming: In the Thanksgiving 2014 special: "Onu-Onu-Onu-Onewa...face," "O-O-Onua," and "Gee-orf."
  • April Fools' Plot:
    • Breez says that since Furno is turning evil, Nex looks like the better choice to date, and Surge is going to go to school note .
    • Surge attempts to pull April Fools' pranks on the Heroes and Masters (from the 2015 reboot of BIONICLE), ultimately kind of succeeding when he runs away from Hero Factory. However, Tahu, Master of Fire isn't very happy.
  • Axe-Crazy: Surge. If he feels like it, he will attack people with no provocation.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall / Medium Awareness: In the Thanksgiving Episode for 2014, Pohatu says that the reason he crashed was because he was thinking about BIONICLE 2015 note . On the same subject, in their Veterans Day episode in the same year, Tahu says after he tells Pedestrian that Makuhero City burned down, Pedestrian asks why nothing is happening:
    Tahu: Because the editors are too lazy to put something in there that indicates that something is—that something is happening...[and] that is why there is no Hero Factory in 2015. [goes up to the camera] Headcanon. Accepted.
    • They also notice that the footage has jumped a bit due to the camera having stopped filming.
  • Audience Murmurs: "12/12/12 — The Last Time This is Going to Happen in 99 Years!" and the Christmas 2012 special, to name a couple.
  • Bottle Episode: All of them.
  • Built with LEGO: Played straight and subverted; even though the characters are from LEGO, they don't use system bricks (traditional LEGOs).
  • Call-Back:
    • Thanksgiving 2014: History Repeats: Surge destroying the table in the Thanksgiving special in 2012. Talked about, then re-enacted.
    • Easter 2015: Evil Doctor Green Hare from the Easter special in 2013 comes back, intending to take over. However, Dog Puppet comes in once again to save the day, this time without his companion.
  • Character Exaggeration: Mark Surge, in Hero Factory canon, is not at all silly, destructive, or obsessed with electricity; however, due to the high ability of an Interpretative Character (of almost any character) within the Webisodes, it's easy to take him (or anyone else) in nearly any direction.
  • Advertisement:
  • Christmas Episode: One every year since 2012 except for 2013, which is by a technicality (the train in "Matoran Go on a Train Ride" looped around the Christmas tree).
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Surge, hands down. Gosh, is there anything he won't do?!
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Anyone who isn't nutty and isn't Surge.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • Easter 2015: Evil Doctor Green Hair references his assistant, who he says he fired, and Surge references how he believed Tahu when he accidentally said "f" instead of "h."
  • Cutaway Gag: In both ThanksgivingEpisodes, when Surge talks about the turkey, it cuts to the turkey.
  • Drunk on Milk: Both Nuhrii and Underwear Lincoln Log get drunk on eggnog in the New Year's Eve Special and the Thanksgiving Episode, respectively. Although, sometimes eggnog can have alcohol.
  • Educational Short: The Martin Luther King Day episode from 2013 is more educational than silly.
  • Election Day Episode: The Grand Oak Party (Joker and Surge) vs. the Themocrats (Tahu and Beej Rind).
  • Ensemble Cast: All of Alpha Team (Surge, Stormer, Furno, Breez, Bulk, Stringer, Nex, Evo, Rocka), many BIONICLE characters, some Hero Factory villains, and a few Original Characters
  • Flat "What": Breez is very prone to this.
    Surge: What the what.
  • Funny Background Event:
    • In "Halloween Special 2012: Celebrities and Calendars," Miss Piggy, Froggie, and Geico (stuffed animals) attack the Joker.
    • In "Our April Fool's Day Special 2013," Batman is seen sticking out of Surge's backpack.
  • Gag Series: This is Randomness
  • Halloween Episode:
    • 2012: Surge gives everyone masks, and they all go trick-or-treating. Subverted in that it's not actually Halloween; Surge messed up Hero Factory's calendar, somehow.
    • 2014: Tahu and Kopaka take some Matoran trick-or-treating. It ends with Surge.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Surge says "Be nice!" Yet he attacks people.
  • Immediate Self-Contradiction: Thanksgiving 2014: "Thanksgiving is not about food...even though it kind of is..."
    • Later on in the speech:
      Surge: It's about turkey, and family! But mostly turkey.
    • Immediately pointed out by Tahu.
  • Infomercial: "Tahu Does an Infomercial."
  • Laugh Track: Parodied in "Memorial Day 2015" when Agent Diamond asks where the laugh track is coming from and Scoper says he can't hear it.
  • Law of Alien Names: Gormo follows this, for the most part.
  • The Name Is Bond, James Bond: "The name's Gormo, Al Gormo."
  • The Nicknamer: Surge.
  • Non Sequitur:
    Batman: Joker, my greatest enemy.
    Joker: Hello, Batman—!
    Batman: Would you like to swim with this fish?

How well does it match the trope?
