Webcomic / Tails of Lanschilandia

Compared to most of the comic, it very well may be.note 
Tails of Lanschilandia is a Furry/Fantasy webcomic by Tammy Spahn started in 2012. It details the episodic adventures and misadventures of Lanschi the duck and his Funny Animal friends as they repeatedly try to ruin the schemes of Evil Sorcerer Big Bad Kakralomino and deal with various other villains and monsters. Inspired by Saturday Morning Cartoons, The comic is set in a semi-mediaeval Schizo Tech world which seems to run mostly on Rule of Funny with some passing moments of seriousness.

The comic features relatively large pages and currently updates every Friday. There is also a B Side Comic, Dyllis Filler, that updates whenever the main one is taking a break and has a seperate plot and characters. One print edition has been released so far.

The main webcomic provides examples of:

  • Adipose Rex: King Lanschi.
  • Aerith and Bob: Notably Parsley (Sage Rose Marian Thyme), whose first name is exotic (as the name of a person, at least), while the rest of her Overly Long Name‎ is mundane.
  • Art Evolution: The art has been gradually becoming more detailed with finer lines and more elaborate shading; it's especially noticeable between the first and second story.
  • Baleful Polymorph: The inevitable insect transformation in "The Metamorphosis of Mr. Ani", a Shout-Out to Kafka's The Metamorphosis.
  • Advertisement:
  • Big Eater: Hayfa. Also Fat and Proud and willing to gain more weight, as indicated by her character profile.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Bad Bat has one. It's also very oddly shaped, usually forming a zig-zag line.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Phoebe. A sketch page in the print edition points out that she's "known to defy logic and physics with alarming regularity".
  • Cute Little Fang: Batty has one, in contrast to her male counterpart's more prominent fangs.
  • Disney Acid Sequence: The musical sequence in "Ooze Busters".
  • Evil Sorcerer: Kakralomino, complete with Robe and Wizard Hat.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Three out of the four main villains have fangs (the other has mandibles).
  • Feather Fingers: Only present when they're required. When they're not, the wings are more like flippers.
  • Floating Limbs: Kakralomino's feet/shoes are detached from the (floating) rest of his body.
  • Advertisement:
  • Funny Animal: A lot of the cast, especially goodguys, though not all characters are based on animals (and how much they resemble what they're based on varies).
  • Funny Spoon: The first story's entire plot revolves around one.
  • Good Animals, Evil Animals: The main badguys apart from Kakralomino are two bats and a spider.
  • Informed Species: Lanschi doesn't look much like the duck he's supposed to be.
    • Phoebe, who looks a lot more like a duck than Lanschi does, is apparently a hummingbird.
  • Ironic Name: Hayfa's name means "slender" in Arabic. She isn't.
  • Living Statue: An entire tribe of them appears in "The Mad and the Madcap".
  • Hat of Power: The Madcap of Malvaric.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, with two characters named Lanschi, as well as a Panschi (and Parsley).
  • "Psycho" Shower Murder Parody: In "Ooze Busters". Its overuse is pointed out in one panel by a rooster hitched to a cart. note 
  • Punny Name: Parsley Sage Rose Marian Thyme.
    • All the islander names and terms in "The Mad and the Madcap" are puns made to sound vaguely like Hawaiian terminology.
  • Redhead In Green: Parsley.
  • Schizo Tech: Technology et cetera seems to range from the middle ages to a sci-fi future (the Big Bad is apparently a space traveller, but lives in a mediaeval tower).
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender
  • Surrounded by Idiots
  • Villain Episode: "Ooze Busters", which focuses on Bad Bat & Batty and doesn't feature the heroes at all.
  • Webcomic Print Collection: One book has been released, containing the first three stories, the B Side Comic up to that point and bonus material not found on the web.
