Bamimation was a cartoon pilot pitched to MTV in 2006, created by and starring Bam Margera, and animated by 6 Point Harness. The series would've followed the usual hijinks of Bam Margera and his friends and family, coupled with Cartoon Physics and gags.

In the pilot, Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn discover a shrink ray invented by Rake Yohn, which they use to stir up havoc. But when they hear that Rake is going on a date with his repulsive girlfriend (whom Bam and friends nicknamed "Scabriella"), they shrink themselves into his body, and do everything they can to get the two to break up. Hilarity Ensues.

The pilot contains examples of:

  • Butt-Monkey: Phil Margera (obviously) and Rake Yohn.
  • Chainsaw Good: At the beginning, Bam and Ryan both take a ride on skateboards that have chainsaws attached.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Dico wears a pirate costume and the only reason his friends are surprised because they thought Saturday was Batman day.
  • Deus ex Machina: To reverse the shrink ray's effects, all that needed to be done was to destroy the shrink ray.
  • "Fantastic Voyage" Plot: The whole plot of the pilot. Unlike most examples of this trope, in which the protagonist(s) enter through an orifice in the head, and leave through the head or anus, Bam and Ryan drive through the anus and escape through the mouth (well, Bam anyway. Ryan ends up leaving through the...usual route.)
  • Groin Attack: When Bam and Ryan enter Rake's body, the first thing they do is punch his testes.
