 Good beetles, we are.

Spoilsbury Toast Boy is a series of three short flash animations created in 2004 and 2005 by David Firth, the same man who brought us the Mind Screw known as Saladfingers.

So one can guess what is to be expected from this creation of his.

The series is set in an unidentified (but rather empty) world run mostly by beetles of either normal or human proportions. Toast Boy, the nervous eponymous character, lives with his grandmother and works in a sweat-shop type toast factory with his sister, Liache. One night, the beetles decide that "pleasant thoughts are unhealthy", and burrow into Toast Boy's head through his ear. Then the nightmares and hallucinations begin...

One of David Firth's lesser known works, the series is told from end to beginning as followed: Spoilsbury Toast Boy, Spoilsbury Toast Boy -1, and Spoilsbury Toast Boy -2.

This show provides examples of:

 The beetles: Beetles know this. Beetles are good doctors.

  • Body Horror
  • Clip Art Animation: Some of the smaller beetles are clip art pictures.
  • Compelling Voice: During the hallucinations, the beetles will often tell Toast Boy what he should do. Another more forceful one comes from a large speaker that will appear out of nowhere and tell the slave children what to do.

  Hallucination beetle: (to Toast Boy) I think you should kill her... slit her open and burn her nipples...

 Beetle #2: Oh we're such jokers.

Beetle #1: Jokers in trousers.

Beetle #2: Well, we're not wearing shorts!

Beetle #1: It's not really the weather for it.

  Doctor Jill: (To Liache) Do you find the mucus in your nasal passage makes breathing a chore? (Liache nods) Well then, perhaps you don't deserve to breathe at all.

 Doctor Jill: Mucus is a living thing you know. It has a certain degree of intelligence.
