Webcomic / Purple Pussy

Go To

Purple Pussy was the infamous webcomic by Shmorky of The Flash Tub fame, and hosted on Keenspot. It ran from 2000 to 2005, and raised controversy when in 2007, one of its comic pages was blatantly traced and hung in an art show.

The protagonist in the comic would be Purple Pussy, a violent feminist cat who goes on zany adventures with her friends. The comic frequently experimented with various art styles, humor, and the occasional story arc, balancing out hysterically vulgar humor with surprisingly emotional moments. An internet classic.

Not For Children.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: Purple Pussy, Betty Bunny, Poopy Puppy... everyone pretty much.note 
  • Alliterative Title: Named after the protagonist, a purple cat.
  • Art Shift: The comic changes styles frequently, from super deformed, to anthro, photo realistic, and is drawn on many different mediums, including photoshop, flash, claymation, MS Paint, crayon, and even mario paint.
  • Art-Style Dissonance: Quite possibly one of the greatest examples
  • Bitter Sweet Ending: In the end of the comic, suddenly everyone moves away forever, leaving Betty and Purple all alone. They then decide to leave the comic together.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Cyan Sid was originally introduced after date-raping Purple.
  • But Now I Must Go: It turns out that Spooky is an alien, as are all goths, and she ends up leaving to return to her home planet.
  • The Cameo: In the last page of the comic Purple Pussy and Betty Bunny turn into Bitch and Eartha from Shmorky's previous webcomic Living in Greytown.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Basically the entire comic is one long stream of profanities.
  • Coming-Out Story: When it's revealed that Purple and Betty Bunny are lesbian lovers, which was actually handled surprisingly tastefully.
  • Creator Thumb Print: Outside of his renowned crass humor, Roofie Raccoon's obsession with old school games is based on the creator's preference for the video games of the eighties and nineties.
  • Disney Death: Shelly Squirrel is told that she will die soon by her doctor. She reminds him this is a comic, and as such she'll be back the next day in perfect health. She doesn't come back.
  • Extreme Omnisexual: Foxy Fox, who is a carrier of over 72 different mutated STDs. "If she can't have sex with it the normal way she will find a way to fuck it."
  • The Fellowship Has Ended: In the end of the comic, everyone moves away.
  • Furry Confusion: I have a cute cat. ... wait, I'm a cute cat...
  • Gass Hole: Pretty much everyone but Betty, who simply can't fart.
  • Granola Girl: Betty Bunny, who is The Stoner amongst the girls.
  • Informed Flaw: Roofie Raccoon is much fatter and uglier than the others, and has a nasty yeast infection. At least this is what we're told, she looks just like the other characters.
  • Journal Comic: Roofie Raccoon has one. And no one reads it because it's terrible.
  • Killed Off for Real: Shelly Squirrel. Also, Scarlet Skunk.
  • Meaningful Name: Poopy Puppy eats poop. Though she eventually starts smoking instead, so Purple would let her join the gang.
  • Missing Mom: Poopy Puppy's mom had died when she was little... Or did she?
  • No Periods, Period: Averted. Menstruation is one of the comics most treasured topics of humor.
  • Official Couple: Purple and Betty
  • Pac Man Fever: Roofie Raccoon only plays Atari and other 8-bit games.
  • Prayer of Malice: "Dear God, make everyone die. Amen."
  • Replacement Goldfish: The moment Shelly is outta the picture Purple starts holding try outs for a new member of the gang.
  • Shout-Out: Roofie Raccoon's favorite game is Clash at Demonhead. Which she plays over and over, in high definition on her giant TV, so she can savor each individual pixel of the hero.
  • Smelly Skunk: Short-lived character Scarlet Skunk.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Shelly Squirrel and Poopy Puppy, "I'm not cool because I smoke. I smoke because I'm cool."
  • Straw Feminist: Purple, she doesn't so much care about equal rights as much as she just really Does Not Like Men.
  • Take That!: Besides the many directed at the readers, they spend entire story lines dedicated to mocking the Atkins diet craze, as well as manipulative cartoon channels like Nickelodeon.
  • Toilet Humor: Poopy Puppy is pretty much the embodiment of this.
