In this spoof of reality TV shows such as The Real World and Big Brother, eight distinct (and dysfunctional) cartoon archetypes (who also spoof the archetypes you might see on a more normal reality series) are flung together and forced to put up with each other. Through various misadventures ranging from scintillating to shocking to downright strange, these eight roomies probe each others' personalities and push each others' buttons.
Captain Hero- An overmuscled, womanizing superhero (as if you couldn't tell from the name) who strongly resembles Superman, Captain Hero is known for his super-strength, super-drinking, and super-sex drive. He fills the role of the egotistical lothario.
Princess Clara- A naive fairy-tale princess right out of a Disney movie, Clara is prone to expressing herself in song and offending people with her ignorance. She fills the role of the sheltered rich girl.
Toot Braunstein- A chubby, washed-up "Betty Boop" wannabe, black-and-white 1920s has-been Toot is jealous of the attention her thinner, more modern counterparts get, and as a result has grown bitter and borderline suicidal. She fills the role of the angry, manipulative bitch.
Foxxy Love- A blaxploitation version of the title character from Josie and the Pussycats, Foxxy is sassy, brassy, and probably bisexual, at the least. She sure seems to have a thing for Princess Clara, and despite being provoked by Clara's unconcious racism and general naivete, seems to consider her a good friend. She fills the role of the token angry black person.
Spanky Ham- Ripped right out of an Internet cartoon along the lines of Retarded Animal Babies, this petulant pig will do anything for a laugh... as long as it's gross and disgusting. He fills the role of the obnoxious party animal.
Ling-Ling- Obviously inspired by the anime Pokémon, this maniacal, sometimes psychotic, Pikachu look-alike speaks in incomprehensible, pseudo-Japanese gibberish, and resents being treated as the household pet. He/she/it fills the role of the hot-headed loner.
Wooldoor Sockbat- Whatever he is, this banana-yellow analogue to modern kids' cartoon starts like SpongeBob SquarePants can usually be found doing something strange in an attempt (usually unsuccessful) to impress his roommates. He fills the role of the attention-starved weirdo.
Xandir- A pretty-boy fantasy video-game hero who's hardly heroic, he's usually rambling about how he's on "a never-ending quest" to rescue his girlfriend. In other words, he's whipped like a pack mule. This changes somewhat after Xandir comes to terms with his sexuality in Episode 3: now he's on a neverending quest to save his BOYfriend. Resembling an effeminate version of Legend of Zelda's Link, he fills the role of the sensitive male who turns out to be a closeted homosexual.
Wicked Awesome Show. Totally Funny!
