YMMV / The Funday Pawpet Show

Go To

  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • Hugh's 'headache' incident(s). Sight gags about manatees and outboard motors should probably not reduce grown men and women to giggling tears so readily, but they do.
    • Some earlier episodes started with a disclaimer that had this gem:
      Those of you with children in the house may want to kill them before watching (That is a joke! The killing part, anyway).
  • Popular with Furries: Because of its animal characters, it has a fanbase amongst furries.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: At one point, the cast got annoyed with a handful of channel dwellers who kept complaining that the show was getting too raunchy. In response they split one episode into two parts - First half was The Squeaky Clean Pawpet & Friends Show which fit this trope, followed immediately by The Poink Show which allowed the naughty weasel to crank the raunch Up to Eleven.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Given the reuse of the same models of puppets for different characters, including different genders, you can never be quite sure what you're getting when certain puppets are pulled out. Very weirdly done with Dookie/Crapalina, a sheepdog puppet which is somehow both male and female at different times...because Crapalina is really a post-op Dookie. Even stranger still when you consider that Dookie keeps showing back up anyway. Happened again with Tantrum, who was revealed to be a girl:
    Blitz: Wait, that's a girl?!

  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Yes, it is a puppet the same way that Avenue Q is a puppet show. As stated by the show host:
    Yappy: Don't just plop your eight-year-old down in front of the show and let them watch it.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: "The Drunk Show", "Episode 420"
  • The Woobie:
    • Temp Ferret. There's a running gag about things that make him cry and he is always getting fired. At one point, he picks up a smoking habit to deal with his stress. Poor thing.
    • Todd Ferret. Despite his cheerful personality, Poink pretty much bullies him.

How well does it match the trope?
