Fantastic Favio has arrived!
And another thing: It's Tony Time.

In the 21st century where teachers assign creative projects to students, two heroes educate with style, skill, and sass. The Fantastic Favio Bros star in a series of videos, currently at a total of about fifty minutes long, in which they fight against their Evil Twins whom think that Everybody Must Get Stoned and the evil Dr. Lucifer who plans to take over the world using calculus. This videos are also Troper Works, as the two main characters, Favio and Tony Muhplaah are tropers.


There are currently four works completed so far:

Their website is, so check it out for news and updates!

This show provides examples of:

  • Anvilicious: Invoked intentionally for comedy. A notable example is when Favio tells Tony that drug money could be be spent on better things like Social Security and designer clothing.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking:
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Favio comes in and saves Tony before he takes ecstasy.
    • In A Powerful Foe, the the town watch comes from nowhere and scares away Bububbaba.
  • Biting-the-Hand Humor: "Wait, what's it? Math and lasers? Who the hell wrote this thing?"
  • Blatant Lies: According to J.E.M. Stone, eating pretzels decreases the odds of having a card in Go Fish.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick:
    • In The Mathematics Movie, Tony Muhplaah is an advocator against drugs, alcohol, and Jews. Hey, Wait!...
    • Dr. Lucifer has super ventriloquism, the ability to remove his thumb, and death vision.
  • Call-Back:
    • In A Powerful Foe, Tony flashes back to the drunken party in the first movie after receiving an invite to go to a new party.
    • In A Powerful Foe, Tony brings out his phone again to threaten to tell the police. Just like last time, that completely fails.
    • In The Mathematics Movie, Tony introduces himself as an advocater against drugs and alcohol, which is a Call-Back to the earlier movies.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
  • Catchphrase: Tony has "Tony Time!".
  • Captain Oblivious: Tony fails to notice the loud noises, flashing lights, and shaking ground which accompanies the town alarm.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander:
    • Tony is a Large Ham, makes many Funny Background Events, and apparently drinks from a toilet with a straw.
    • LeTony suffers from this. It's a side effect of his alcohol/drug usage.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • When MaCavio looks at Tony's phone, he sees that it says "message sent," and wonders what that means.
    • After J.E.M. Stone tells Tony that it is useless to try to fight Dr. Lucifer, Tony interprets it as him saying to not give up.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • LeTony completely defeats Tony in their second fight due to his inability to feel pain and sped up nervous system which resulted from his use of Ecstasy.
    • Bububaba gets one in his introduction to set up bait for future sequels.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The Mathematics Movie of Tony and J.E.M.
  • Death Is Cheap: LeTony doesn't die from cirrhosis of the liver, so he gets back up and becomes friends with Tony and Favio.
  • Face–Heel Turn:
    • Tony almost has one in The Horrors of Ecstasy after a Curb-Stomp Battle with LeTony.
    • Played straight with J.E.M. Stone when he reveals that his middle name is "Evil".
  • Final Speech: "With my dying breath, I must tell you both: meshuga!"
  • Flowery Insults: "J.E.M., you are the quintessence of nincompoopery!"
  • Fun with Acronyms:
    • Averted in The Horrors of Ecstasy, in which the Horribly Illegal Drug Smuggling Operation is addressed as H.I.D.S.O., which means absolutely nothing
    • Used as a plot point in Mathematics Movie when J.E.M. reveals that his middle name is not Ulysses but is actually Evil.
  • Funny Background Event:
    • In the Favio Bros movies, there's a random man who appears in the background occasionally. His name is the Russian Importer.
    • Tony makes many odd faces and movements whenever he's not giving a line.
  • G-Rated Drug:
    • Since underage teens can't really be in possession of drugs, LeTony's ecstasy is just candy.
    • In A Powerful Foe, the man at the party who is supposed to be drinking beer is drinking colorful pieces of candy.
  • Good Morning, Crono: The Mathematics Movie starts with Tony's morning routine while the narration apologizes for accidentally making a racist remark. Despite the oddness of it, it does paint an accurate picture of Tony's personality.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Usually played straight, though occasionally a few bigger words get in there.
  • Ham-to-Ham Combat: With the World of Ham they live in, is it not a surprise?
  • Hey, Wait!: For the viewer, "All that battling made me thirsty. I'm going to go to the bathroom."
  • Incoming Ham: "Why hellooo there, foolish humans!"
  • Infodump: LeTony conveniently dumps information about his evil plans several times in The Horrors of Ecstasy. Lampshaded and used by the Favio Bros in order to save the day.
  • Informed Ability:
    • In the introduction to the Mathematics Movie, J.E.M.'s lasers and Dr. Lucifer's ability to remove his thumb and death vision are never used.
    • Subverted with his Super Ventriloquism, which is actually put to use.
  • Lame Comeback: In The Dangers of Alcohol, "No you won't, you jerkface!".
  • Large Ham: While everyone has traces of it, Tony Muhplaah and Dr. Lucifer are the largest of them!
  • Literal Metaphor:
    • LeTony really will smell the heroes later.
    • In the start of A Powerful Foe, the metaphorical window of evil is about to be burst open... right before a brick flies in through Favio's window.
  • Mistaken for an Imposter: Apparently, an anguished message from Tony asking for help looks like a chain letter.
  • Mistaken for Racist: Tony doesn't dislike the Jews, it was just in his script!
  • Moral Guardians: Favio and Tony.
