Space Beasts is a collection of stories, some on Furaffinity.Net, and some on Writing.com (in the form of campfires). There are also many scripts that were written on Final Draft that are yet to be published. It's a young series that may very well be an actual cartoon show/movie/web animation/comic book/whatever if the creator is lucky. Its premise is a mix of Star Trek the Original Series meets Bucky O Hare and The Toad Wars, or, it could be described as Cordwainer Smith meets Mel Brooks with a liberal sprinkling from various Broadway musicals and plenty of Shout Outs to various other shows and stories the creator loves.

The story follows the crew of The Fellowship; they're a motley crew composed of Uplifted Animals (called Humanimals) along with two humans (One is a former prince named Edward Green who marries the Second-in-Command, Minsk; the other is a homeless waif boy named Ichabod Crane who is adopted by the crew and serves as Team Doctor.) and one alien, (also a former Prince who marries the Captain, Matoaka.) The Humanimals of the crew are Matoaka Redfeather, a unicorn girl; Minsk Flemmingcoff, a mink girl; Bill Brandy, a bull boy; Jim Buckwheat, a squirrel boy; and Bob Buttz, a catfish boy. Former members of the crew include Henry Wisner (AKA Kong), a gorilla boy and Belladonna Starchild, a dragon girl.

Except for the two humans and the alien, all the crew members grew up together on a slave farm in what was formerly Burbank, California. The young Humanimals escaped when they were just children and found a peaceful valley known as The Valley of the Rushes and lived there peacefully for six years before Humans discovered them.

The series follows Ichabod as he learns about Humanimal Culture, rescues Humanimals from slavery (including his own teammates from time to time), falls in love with the mysterious catgirl Marzipan Cheshire, and discovers that both he and Marzipan are part of a thousand-year-old prophecy that will alter the very nature of the universe.


Space Beasts contain examples of

  • A Load of Bull: Bill Brandy, an anthropomorphic Texas Longhorn with a Brooklyn accent.
  • A Taste of the Lash:This is necessary,every time Ichabod falls Off the Wagon and gives in to his wasabi addiction he needs to be whipped back to normal before he turns into a member of The Fair Folk.
  • Acid Reflux Nightmare: At the start of the Phantom of Crystal Mountain story, Marzipan has a frightening prophetic nightmare of the ordeal she is about to go through in this story, she wakes up Ichabod and tells him about, Ichabod dismissively says that the dream was probably caused by the junk food she had for supper. Marzipan is deeply annoyed by this remark.
  • Action Girl: Matoaka the Unicorn, Minsk the Mink, Marzipan the Cat Girl it's harder to find females in this series who are NOT action girls.
  • Adorkable: Ichabod is SO very much this, being a skinny, redheaded, green eyed nerd who drinks tea and sings songs from Broadway Musicals he also has a enormous nose that Humanimal Woman find hot.
  • A Man Is Not a Virgin: Averted. Ichabod is in no rush to lose his virginity. Justified because at the story's start he's only 13 years old.
  • Animal Stereotypes: Plays with these, Matoaka embodies the Noble Unicorn stereotype, Marzipan is fairy typical as the sweet and lovable Catgirl most of the others subvert, Bill is in no way a stupid and clumsy bull but is actually quite street smart and savvy, Jim does not embody the hyperactive squirrel stereotype by being a mellow and laid back Nice Guy.
  • Animal Talk: Referred to as Animalese, all Humanimals understand it without the need of an interpreter, also all animals understand each other, a dog can understand a cat, a cow can understand a horse, humans are the only Earth species that does not understand Animalese.
  • Animal Wrongs Group: BAAW (Because Animals Are Wonderful) is an animal rights group determined to 'liberate' Humanimals by setting them free in the wild, Humanimals generally don't want to be released in the wild, so understandably they don't submit willingly, BAAW becomes increasingly sophisticated in trying to subdue the creatures they are trying to 'liberate'.
  • Alien Catnip: Ichabod learns he is Half Elf and that to half elves wasabi is like a mix of catnip and crack cocaine, to only way to bring him back down to normal is through physical pain, and normally that means Ichabod gets a spanking.
    • Also Strawberries seem to have a similar effect on Aves to ecstasy mixed with Viagra .The result is a painful, long lasting erection.
      • On a side note it seems there are different kinds of Fae each with their own addictions, Fairies are addicted to peanut butter and goblins are addicted to bananas.
  • Babies Ever After: The Epilogue features almost all the main couples having at least one or two children, The Author is working on sequel series featuring the children.
  • Badass: Aside from the various Action Girls listed above, several Badass characters include Bill Brandy, Jim Buckwheat and Henry Wisner (AKA Kong) the Gorilla.
  • Bat Out of Hell: Averted with Iris Ogg a Bat Woman, while she does seem creepy and does have bizarre magical powers she is one of the most powerful heroic characters in the series!
  • Berserk Button: for many Humanimals, stereotypes associated with Furry Fandom, especially Yiff.
  • Big Badass Wolf: Jake Marrows a Wolf Man police officer who helps the heroes from time to time, in the first episode he nearly bites off Edward's hand! (This was back when Edward was still a bad guy).
  • Big Eater:Once again, it is easier too list the characters who are NOT this. Bill, Jim and Bob are pretty much walking garbage cans, Marzipan is loves to devour junk food, Ichabod is interesting because he became a Big Eater through character development, now he competes with Bill, Jim and Bob eagerly shoveling food in his face with the best of them!
  • Brains and Bondage/Casual Kink: After getting spanked at various points in the story in time Ichabod realizes he rather likes getting spanked, he only likes it when Marzipan does it though.
  • Camp Straight: Sinuous the shadow cobra is this. He is a frilly fashion loving reptile who is nonetheless in love with a female penguin.
  • Catgirl: Features one prominently as the main Love Interest, there is also a Unicorn Girl, a Mink Girl, a Zebra Girl Etc, Etc...
  • Cats Are Magic: Marzipan is a powerful Mage who has not yet realized her potential, her Mentor Mr. Quaxo Tabby is also a mage but does not have the same amount of raw power she has.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Marzipan can be this at times, but most of the time she's pretty mellow and nice.
  • Clones Are People, Too: How many stories do you know of where a clone is the hero of the story? In fact the fact that he is a clone isn't really an issue to anyone except some old fashioned bigots who considers clones crimes against nature (These people generally aren't fond of Humanimals either)
  • Cloning Blues: Ichabod is a clone of his Father who was a half elf (This explains why I call Ichabod Half Elf and not quarter elf, he gets none of his genes from his Mom) Also while Ichabod always knew he was a clone, for most of his childhood he didn't suffer from this trope as his parents treated him as their beloved child and not something expendable, however in the episode Monster, the people of Earthport learn Ichabod is a clone and start harassing him for it calling him a Monster, Ichabod is rescued by his Humanimal friends and learns An Aesop That harassing Bob for being gay (Which he had been doing earlier in the episode) is no different than the Earthport citizens harassing him for being a clone.
  • Comfort Food:
    • Ichabod and his chamomile tea. Also when Ichabod was a little boy, his father made a mean New England clam chowder that was fondly remembered by Ichabod in an episode discussing childhood meals.
    • Jim and his apple pie.
    • Marzipan got back to Earth after being held captive by the evil Ave Skeksis and his nephew Falco, the first thing she wanted was a hamburger with extra onions
    • Bill Brandy is also quite fond of ice cream, particularly strawberry flavor after being allowed a taste of it after having a Near-Death Experience at eight years old
  • Conveniently an Orphan: Subverted with both Ichabod and Marzipan. Ichabod initially thinks he's an orphan but a few months later after he has met Marzipan, he finds out his parents are alive and are coming to see him. At first Ichabod is overjoyed, but quickly remembers that he had an Arranged Marriage to a human girl, one we conveniently forgot about when he met Marzipan. Ichabod does everything he can to avoid his parents but they quickly track him down and they know about his new engagement to Marzipan and they are none too pleased when they find out their son is engaged to a cat. Ichabod and his family inevitably reconcile but it takes at least half year to do so. Marzipan was kidnapped when she was eight years old after running away from home because of a spat she had with her little sister Emma. For many years Marzipan never knew weather her family was alive or dead, then she received a tip off that her mom, dad and sister were living in the sewers of Viola Streirra the seedy underworld planet. As for the Characters who actually are orphans. (Bill, Jim, Bob, Minsk, Kong and others) They will let you know the the fact they are orphans is NOT convenient.
  • Cooking Duel: Frequently happens when Minsk and Marzipan's rivalry gets out of hand often very silly with matches like Minsk's borscht VS Marzipan's chicken soup, or something like that.
  • Creepy Cockroach: Averted with Sir Nrrr'c an Uplifted Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, Nrrr'c is a marriage counselor and an overall nice guy that you'd love to have as your friend, you just don't want to be near him when he's eating.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: Marzipan's best friend Rook Reynardo is a fox boy who is both cunning (When he needs to be) and true to the typical Furry Fandom Stereotype very, very gay. However he is more of a Straight Gay than anything.
  • Cute Kitten: Marzipan knows darn well about this trope and uses it to get her way. Whenever she wants Ichabod to do something, she acts like an adorable kitty by purring, meowing and batting at a ball of yarn until Ichabod relents from the Cuteness Overload. She also used this tactic when she was being held prisoner by Falco and his wicked Uncle Skeksis. It seems to work even better on Falco due to the fact he was suffering from Lima Syndrome.
  • Delicious Distraction: It's pretty easy to distract elves or fairies if you got lots of wasabi or peanut butter on hand, unfortunately this also applies to their half human descendants who get hit much harder by the addiction because they are not immortal.
  • Delicious Fruit Pies: During a chase scene, Big Bad Bimbolurlina stops chasing the Fellowship crew for....Delicious Big Johnny's Ham Sandwiches
  • Does Not Like Spam: Ichabod DESPISES anything too sweet, its not because Real Men Hate Sugar either, Ichabod simply cannot tolerate excessive sweetness, also despite his lust for wasabi he does not like sushi.
  • Erotic Eating: Kong tries this one time with a banana.
  • Ethical Slut: Kate Punda-Milla, the zebra girl is only partially this. She was infamous on her home world for being a mare who Really Gets Around but has since come came to settle down for the family life with Ichabod's half uncle, Thomas Lanky. However, she is very helpful to the crew as she is pretty much a sexual encyclopedia and gives Bill and Samantha advice on how to safely make love. She also gives Ichabod and Marzipan ideas on how to satisfy their libidos (tickling fetishes, spanking) without losing their virginity.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: There are quite a few dinosaur humanimals, there is Momo Kashi, a female triceratops, Fossil, a Velociraptor Shaman, and Rodan a Pteranodon who was raised by the Aves.
  • Everything's Worse with Bears: Averted with Snowy and Ebony. Although they are officially M's henchmen, they secretly helped the heroes during their battle with B.A.A.W. Snowy the polar bear is especially helpful in revealing M's origin story to the heroes.
  • Everything's Better with Cows: Both Bill Brandy and Sir Taurus are Bull Men.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: Before Ichabod was adopted by The Fellowship crew the Team Medic position was filled by Henry Wisner (but everybody calls him Kong) Kong is a Gorilla, a jive talking gorilla with an afro.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: Hopper the rockhopper penguin is a figure of legend in Humanimal history, one of the first Humanimals ever created. She's also a Killer Rabbit.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Averted, After an odd set of circumstances, Jordan Celt becomes the Prime Minister (The first Humanimal to hold such an office) of Britain, Not Princess, Prime Minister.
  • Everythings Nuttier With Squirrels: Subverted, Jim Buckwheat the Squirrel Boy is pretty mellow and laid back, until you hurt his friends, you defiantly don't want to be around him when he's wielding his Flaming Sword.
  • The Fair Folk: Ichabod soon learns he is half elf, he is NOT happy.
  • Food Porn: Oh yeah, plenty of this, between having two characters being Supreme Chefs and almost everyone being a Big Eater this series is all over this trope like butter on toast (Mmmm! Butter!) Marzipan in particular seems to specialize in classic Comfort Food New England Clam Chowder never looked so good!
    • In one episode where Ichabod is mad at Marzipan, she manages to get him to shut up by promising to make him some tea, her description of the tea is almost as lush as a phone sex actor describing what she is wearing.
  • Free-Love Future: Inverted. Nearly everyone in the universe seeks a monogamous marriage. For the Aves, their very biology prevents them from falling in love with anyone other then their first love because when they lose their virginity, their bodies produce a chemical that bonds them permanently to their first mate. For Humans and Humanimals monogamy is encouraged because of the danger of radiation - mutated STDs that are resistant to all antibiotics.
  • Furry Confusion: Averted. It is pretty clear that Humanimals are sapient and ordinary regular animals are not.
  • Furry Fandom: in addition to Space Beasts being a Furry Fandom series itself, Furry Fandom exists in-universe as well, sometimes to the annoyance of the Humanimals.
  • Gentleman Thief: Edward THOUGHT he was this before his Heel Face Turn But really he was more of 'Gentleman Humanimal Trafficker' capturing innocent Humanimals and sending them to horrible fates, Only when Minsk breaks through the conditioning is he able to realize how awful he was.
  • The Heart: Jim Buckwheat fits this trope to a tee. When Ichabod is first rescued by the Fellowship crew. Ichabod is really frightened and depressed over the loss of his family and his home. The first thing Jim does is try to cheer him up. He repeatedly tries to get Ichabod to cheer up during the five episode pilot, especially after Bill (Who at this point is still distrustful of humans) is being mean to him. After a while Ichabod gets annoyed with Jim's constant attempts to make him feel better and demands to be left alone.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Surprisingly subverted, humans, despite creating the Humanimals to be a Servant Race and everything are NOT the epitome of evil in the universe, if anything the series argues that Humans Are Flawed.
  • Hyperactive Metabolism: Spoofed in one episode where the characters are trapped in a video game world, and Bob has to patiently explain how eating food heals you. Unfortunately unlike other video games, the heroes don't have a Bottomless Bladder. They inevitably need bathroom breaks on their quest which hampers them quite a bit, on the bright side Decaf Coffee serves as a Power-Up Food to Edward one sip of decaf and he becomes so angry he can smash down a brick wall!
      • "When I eat this apple my HP goes up...don't ask me how it, just is."
  • Impossibly Delicious Food: Wasabi is this to Elves and Half Elves (For Fairies and Half Fairies it is Peanut Butter)
    • Also in the series there is a kind of magical bread that can bring the dead (Or at least The Undead) back to life.
      • Also in one episode where Ichabod is turned into a ghost, Marzipan goes on a dangerous journey to get the impossibly delicious spirit food that will be able to return Ichabod to his body, she finds the spirit world, but the spirits are so stingy they won't even let her have one spirit apple! Marzipan almost kills herself trying to get a spirit apple, only when Ichabod offers to stay in the spirit world forever in exchange for Marzipan's life are the spirits touched by The Power of Love Between the two to let them have the spirit apple.
        • In another episode The Wrangler Empire tries to get The Federation Humanimals addicted to 'magic food' which apparently smells incredibly good to Humanimals, once they start eating they just can't stop!
  • Intelligent Gerbil: All the Non-Earthling species are this, Aves are Bird People (Specifically Alien Herons) Octos are Octopi, Magis are Cats and those are just the three main Alien species!
  • Interspecies Adoption: Iris the Bat Woman and Beauty the Cobra Girl were both Raised by Humans (This has tragic repercussions for Beauty as it means she has imprinted on the wrong species.) Rodan the Pteranodon however was Raised by Aliens Specifically the Aves. He lived in the same neighborhood as Zander and Falco, but he never met them due to being incredibly shy and most of the Aves being none too accepting of this strange creature in their midst.
  • Interspecies Romance: Let's see...We have Human Boy and Cat Girl, Human Boy and Mink Girl, Male Alien Bird Thing and Unicorn Girl, Bull Boy and Human Girl, Human Boy and Zebra Girl, and one case of a Gorilla Boy having a crush on a Dragon Girl (But nothing ever comes of it) In fact of the very few couples in which the members are the same species, Jim Buckwheat and Jordan Celt (Both Red Squirrels) are the only same species couple that feature main characters.
  • Killer Rabbit: Hopper the rockhopper penguin, a figure of legend.
  • Literal Ass-Kicking: It's a Running Gag throughout the series that the universe seems to hate Ichabod's bottom. First and foremost, the standard cure for his wasabi addiction is to be spanked repeatedly until his elf features recede back into his body. Second, Ichabod almost always gets punished whenever he gets arrogant or cocky by some injury to the rear end. If there is something hot in the room, Ichabod will have the bad luck to sit on it; if Marzipan leaves some unfinished sewing project on a chair, Ichabod is bound to get a needle in his butt. Occasionally, Edward or Zander will get spanked or have their asses kicked once in a while.[1] Ichabod himself lampshades this, wondering why the universe hates his butt so much. Bill and Jim tell him to look on the bright side.

 Bill: It could be worse! The universe could hate your groin instead!

  • Love Redeems: It certainly did for Falco,the tender kiss of a little blue dragon, turned that bullying Jerkass Ave into a noble hero.
  • Loving a Shadow: M Newkirk chose Snowy the Polar Bear as his bride for no other reason then he loved her inherent 'wildness'. While M loves all animals (and Humanimals) he believes domestic species are 'not as pure' (i.e. corrupted) by Man's domestication, ironically the only Humanimal who actually loves him is Bianca a very domestic Andalusian horse girl.
  • The Medic: This is Ichabod's job on the ship, Also Kong's job as he opens a clinic in Earthport after Ichabod takes his place.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Just as Minsk is Ms Fanservice, her husband Edward is Mr. Fanservice, dashing Lovable Rouge type with a hidden heart of gold? How can he not be this trope? So basically we have Mr. and Mrs, Fanservice Happily Married and raising Fanservice Junior!
  • Ms. Fanservice: Surprisingly enough not the Catgirl Unless you really dig the Girl Next Door type but Minsk Flemmingcoff, the Sexy and seductive Mink Girl lets see how many turn on tropes does she embody? Is she a Brainy Brunette? Check, Is she a benevolent version of the Femme Fatale? Check, Does she do any Erotic Eating?? (Like Distract Edward by playing with the marshmallow in the coffee with her tongue? SUPER CHECK!
  • Mundane Luxury: Bill Brandy, Jim Buckwheat and most of the Fellowship crew keep a toybox filled with their childhood toys on board the ship, why? Because when they were growing up on the slave farm they were one of the few Humanimal children even allowed to have toys! (Most of them were hand me downs from local children who outgrew them or didn't want them anymore) The Humanimals keep the toys for the sake of nostalgia and to show appreciation for what they have.
    • Also when the they escaped the Slave Farm and found sanctuary in the Valley of the Rushes, Jim, Bill and all the others were overjoyed by the fact that now they could eat all the strawberries, blackberries and any other berry they want and there were no humans to forbid them from doing so (Berries, grapes, cherries and other little delicate fruits were forbidden to the Humanimals because they were an expensive delicacy at the time and reserved for humans alone)
  • Nerd: Ichabod, Bob, Marzipan and Rook all have their nerdy moments
  • One-Note Cook: When Marzipan is enchanted and turned into an Eight Year Old Kitten, She insists she will still do the cooking because apparently the only thing Ichabod can make well-or at least edible-is hard boiled eggs. "Very good hard boiled eggs." He was said to mumble meekly
  • Only Electric Sheep Are Cheap: On the planets belonging to The Empire Regular non-uplifted animals are an extremely rare and expensive commodity, as most of them have been used to make Humanimal slaves. Near the end of the series Big Bad Lord Darkseid's son Prince Julius learns that his Dad took his beloved Great Dane Rosebud and turned her into a Humanimal slave without his knowledge, seeing his beloved dog as a broken in slave was enough to cause the prince to pull a Heel Face Turn and help the heroes defeat his Dad.
  • Orgasmically Delicious: When Ichabod gets into the wasabi you could almost swear he was about climax in his pants. Also a literal example when Ichabod eats an apple from the spirit world, he the the magic the brings him back to life is so powerful he ejaculates upon reviving. (Yes he was embarrassed but he was also grateful to be alive again and have Marzipan safely back with him.)
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Many different varieties of Dragon Humanimal populate the universe. Belladonna Starchild is a typical Eastern Dragon, and Tiamat is a Hydra. (Despite being a Multiple Head Case she is considered quite a sex symbol.)
  • Our Zombies Are Different: In the Battle with B.A.A.W. Story Arc, we are introduced to the Shadow Humanimals, undead Humanimals who serve B.A.A.W. they are something of a cross between Voodoo and Reveniant, they are similar to Voodoo zombies as they were brought into being by a magic spell and have to obey the master's commands weather they want to or not but are mostly like Reveniant as they have minds of their own and resent their masters for enslaving them. They are extremely different from the typical portrayal of zombies as they are not rotting corpses but have the appearance of extremely beautiful Humanimals the main way you can tell them apart from regular Humanimals, they don't breathe, they are freezing cold to the touch and they have a death like stench, Unlike most zombies who subsist on Brain Food Shadow Humanimals mostly eat normal food despite the fact they don't need to and mostly do so out of habit, also they tend to have a very strong sex drive, as poor Ichabod found out when Uni the Shadow Unicorn tried to have her way with him.
  • Pandaing to the Audience: Andy Kan, the Lovable Giant Panda Man who runs The Black and White a frequent hang out spot for our heroes he serves a mean glass of soda and and even meaner pizza pie.
  • Petting Zoo People: All the Humanimals are this, to a lesser extent the Intelligent Gerbil Aliens are this as well.
  • The Power of Love: The Power of Love is what drives the plot. The Prophecy that sets the plot in motion states, "If a virgin human male loves a humanimal female with all his heart and he loses his virginity to her, then the universe will be altered and all intelligent beings will become equal."
  • Power-Up Food:
    • The Magic Spice can turn you into a child, the Magic Spring water can reverse the effects of the spice and turn you into an adult.
    • When trapped in the video game world drinking Decaf Coffee enrages Edward so much he can smash walls and break robots in half!
  • Pregnant Badass: Matoaka defies orders to go on Maternity leave and continues to be Captain of The Fellowship while pregnant with Zander's child! Minsk as well when she is pregnant with Edward's child
  • Pretty Boy: M Newkirk, an Expy of N Harmonia from Pokémon Black and White is this? He is this! According to most of the other men, he's so beautiful that it's obnoxious.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Averted, many of the reptile characters are extremely nice and pleasant, in fact early in the series Matoaka informs Ichabod "There is no such thing as a bad animal, only extremely prejudiced humans."
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: Aves are and unusual case, not so much 'Aliens are Nazis' or 'Aliens are Communists' but more Aliens are stuffy Victorian Era prudes. Kind of overlaps with Nazis with their 'No Interspecies Breeding Allowed' policy and their general obsession with 'pure blood'. Can you blame Poor Zander for his My Species Doth Protest Too Much attitude?
  • Sex Slave: Yeah I know, As Squicky as it may be often times Humanimals are born and bred to be sex slaves. Jordan Celt was being 'groomed' to be her Master's concubine until Jim rescued her. Rose the Dragon Girl was captured to be a sex slave.
  • Shout-Out: Many, many shout outs, One in particular, within Humanimal culture there is a particular Humanimal Rock Band named you guessed it "The Bremen Town Musicians" and just like in the original Folk Tale, there members consist of a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster. Their popularity among young Humanimals is comparable to the popularity of The Beatles or Elvis Presley, it is revealed in story that apparently they broke up for a while then got back together again, Falco says he doesn't know why they don't just stay broken up. (He obviously doesn't like them) However he decides to 'cut them some slack' when he sees how popular they are with his Half-Dragon Humanimal Daughter Garuda.
  • Snakes Are Sexy: Beauty Cherrystone a Cobra Girl, is in love with Ichabod and competes with Marzipan for his affections.
  • Soapbox Sadie: Bill's Human girlfriend Samantha Star is notoriously political, particularly when it comes to saving the environment and animal welfare. She also Speaks Fluent Animal.
  • Straight Gay: Bob Buttz the Catfish Boy and his boyfriend Rook Reynardo the Fox Boy.
  • Supreme Chef: Both Marzipan and Minsk compete for this title and yes this has led to many a Cooking Duel
  • Sweet Tooth: Bill, Jim and Bob all have humongous sweet tooths! Ichabod seems to be the only character with an anti-sweet tooth! He can't eat anything sweeter then a piece of fresh fruit without getting horribly sick, he can however enjoy a drop of honey in his tea
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Most of the characters are big eaters in general but most have a favorite food or two, Marzipan is very fond of hamburgers, Ichabod is enjoys the occasional cup of chamomile tea,(The wasabi is more of a drug than a food to him) Matoaka loves strawberries, Zander likes to eat fish (Which he likes live and squirming as they go down his throat) Edward likes coffee, Bob likes cola and so on and so forth
  • Twenty Bear Asses: Combines this trope with Wacky Cravings If Minsk or Matoaka's cravings are particularly strong they will send either their husbands, or Bill, Jim and Ichabod out and will not let them come home without that particular brand of Pistachio flavored ice cream or pickled radishes.
  • Twice-Told Tale: The Phantom of the Opera Parody Phantom of Crystal Mountain is essentially a futuristic retelling of the tale where many of the tropes are subverted or inverted for example in the original novel the story was about a heroine with Stockholm Syndrome in the Crystal Mountain story the Phantom of the story (Falco) is an reluctant kidnapper who develops Lima Syndrome and Marzipan is the Genre Savvy heroine who milks it for all it's worth!
  • Unicorn: One featured prominently as the Captain of the crew, plays with the whole 'Can only be touched by a virgin' thing by having her fall in love with Zander who was a Virgin Male at the time (But Matoaka was unaware of that)
  • Uplifted Animal: The Humanimals were created by humans to serve as slaves, naturally the Humanimals didn't like being slaves so inevitably they rebelled, Planet Earth was the first planet to proclaim Humanimals free citizens now the human colonized planets are dived between The Federation Planets-who want the Humanimals to be liberated- and The Empire Planets, who want to keep using Humanimals as slaves
  • Wacky Cravings: While Matoaka and Minsk were pregnant they would send either their husbands or Bill, Jim and Ichabod out for the strangest things in one episode Minsk sends them out for duck blood of all things!
  • Waif Prophet: Bob Buttz and occaionally Marzipan
  • What Measure Is a Non-Cute?: Averted. While most of the main cast are typically cuddly creatures like, household pets Marzipan the ragdoll cat and Quaxo the tabby cat. There are woodland creatures like Jim the squirrel and Rook the fox, farm animals like Bill the Bull, and charismatic mega fauna like Kong the Gorilla and Kate the Zebra. There are also many heroic humanimals whose species are typically cast in a villainous role like Beauty Cherrystone (cobra girl), Iris Ogg (bat woman) and even a heroic cockroach named Sir Nrrr'c.
  • The White Prince: Zander the Prince of Bird-like Aliens called Aves is this to Captain Matoaka.
  • Yiff: Mocked. Humanimals seem to be aware of Furry Fandom, and really hate furries' species stereotypes (e.g., Rabbit People absolutely despise the stereotype they enjoy being eaten) And Humanimals in general don't like the Furrys' depiction of animal sex. As Beauty the Snake Girl put it, "We do not yiff! We make love." Mentioning Yiff around a Humanimal (Especially a Fox Humanimal) is a good way to get the stuffing beat out of you.

Notes

  1. In a rare example of this trope being played for drama, Zander's behind was fiercely flogged for falling in love with a genetically engineered animal after he was stripped of his royal birthright.
