YMMV / Spliced

Go To

  • Cult Classic: While it never gained any mainstream attention during its brief time on air or afterwards, Spliced still managed to gain a small but loyal following and still has nostalgic value for a decent number of people.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Patricia the platypus and Octocat seem to be the most popular characters with the fandom.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple:
    • Despite having a pretty reduced Internet fandom (probably as a result of all the screwing), fans have already begun to search for their OTPs. If their work is any indication, besides for the apparent Official Couple of Mister Smarty Smarts and Octocat, there seems to be a preference for Peri/Patricia, for one reason or another. Luckily, there seems to be no jerkass attitudes about this at all. Yeah, you read right. This small fandom doesn't make a big deal outta shipping, they just go ahead and have fun.

    • Let's not forget the legions of Peri/Entree yaoi fangirls.
    • Some people seem to like Compuhorse and Fuzzy Snuggums together, what with their similar loner personalities.
  • Friendly Fandoms: With Jimmy Two-Shoes, due to both being Teletoon series from the late 2000s that share similarly wacky tones and directions.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Because it's not Screwed by the Network in those areas, it's quite popular in Latin America and Australia.
  • Ho Yay:
    • In the episode "Poosh and the Quest for the Blargy Parble", Entree kisses Mister Smarty Smarts after "losing" a bet with Peri in a game of Bucket-Stick Fruitball. The dude uses his tongue.
    • Mister Smarty Smarts also kissed Peri in Outsmartered and pursues him for partnership in Come to the Dork Side, complete with face caressing. He seems to actually like Peri and wishes he would just notice him already. Or that he could be forced to be more compatible.
      Smarty(desperate): "But-but-but...we were going to be a team! I even made t-shirts!"
      Octocat: "Meow."
      (mournful): "I know, the shirts were too much; they freaked him think, Peri could have had all this..!"

    • Joe also agreed to marry some aardvark guy when he got arms.
    • Same Difference was very fluffy for Mr. Smarty and Joe. And at the end, they still sit in their special place and have a picnic. Aww...
    • One Joe Wingus played very sweetly for Wingus and Joe. Wingus chooses Joe over his own people twice, and the both of them bond immensely throughout the storyline.
    • Apparently Joe thinks Peri is deliciously cute, enough to gush over him and lick him throughout an episode because he tastes like "A hug from a snowman". Peri does not mind at all.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Mister Smarty Smarts and Entree.
  • Nausea Fuel: Being a Gross-Out Show, much of the this is to be expected. Special mention goes to The Super Lick Challenge, and the episodes "Stomach on Strike" and "Bite, Shuffle and Moan".
  • Nightmare Fuel: In the episode "Brothers in Farms", all the animals get eaten by Entree's doppelganger. To escape him, they turn him inside out. What's more isn't just the fact that they leave him like that, but also how they lock him away in a fridge afterwards.
    • Two-Legs Joe can be this when he gets a bit too ticked-off.

  • Too Good to Last: Although it did very well on Teletoon during its time on air and is looked back at with fondness by many, the series was ultimately canned before it even got a second season because, in the words of the creators, "it wasn't in the cards at that time[...] events conspired against the show".
  • Spiritual Adaptation: From the island setting, mutated animal cast (with a orange protagonist leading the fray), science fiction overtones, and emphasis on slapstick comedy, this is probably the closest thing we'll ever get to a Crash Bandicoot animated series.
  • Ugly Cute: Peri and Entree. Even though they're freaky-looking Mix-and-Match Critters, they do actually look kinda cuddly.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: This series is more than a little weird, to say the least.
  • The Woobie: Fuzzy Snuggums. He's very cute and innocent, but the series loves putting him through multiple kinds of hell just for laughs.
