  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Now with 90% less Sonny.


So Random! (2011) is a Sketch Comedy series on the Disney Channel. Technically the third season of what once was Sonny With a Chance. In that show, So Random was a Show Within a Show that the characters were stars on and snippets would be shown in between the off-set plots.

However, Demi Lovato, who played Sonny, refused to reprise her role after the second season in order to focus on her musical career and resolve some personal issues. The show was retooled and defictionalized into its own show, losing the backstage plots and becoming a full-fledged Sketch Comedy show complete with special and musical guests.

Only had one season and ended in 2012.


So Random provides the following tropes:

 Vanna: You're welcome, America!

 "Kermit, Kermit. Let me explain this again. So Random!, the Show Within a Show is now its own show. Yes, Chad's a Random now, deal with it!"

 Taylor: (singing) I'll spin the wheel, it'll turn clockwise.

Pat: Okay thank you Princess Obvious, now will you spin the wheel?

    • Also, a literal incarnation of the trope (a captain who goes around pointing out obvious things) in one episode.
  • Catch Phrase: "Oh, you're not going to believe this!"
    • "Tell ya WUUUUUUUT!"
    • "Well I don't mean to BRAG but.."
    • "Angus, you know that pose drives me CRAAAAAZZYYY!"
      • "I knnnnnoooooorrrrrr!"
    • "I don't play by the rules. (food item)!" (crashes into something)
    • "Have you seen my shins? They're like sticks."
  • Dawson Casting: Tiffany Thorton, who plays Tawni, who is stated as been in her late teens, in real-life 26.
  • Dead Baby Comedy: The "Zombie Man" skits. One of them involves Zombie Man eating his teacher and then using her bones as a science project.
  • A Dog Ate My Homework: Not a dog, but a monkey took it instead. (Actually, the monkey force-fed the dog the homework). The dog did, however, eat the plane tickets.
  • Extreme Doormat: Subverted. The Goth girl from the Garage Band sketches acts like one, but she goes Berserk Button at the not raging people who try to join the band.

 Girl: GET OUTTA MY GARAGE! [screams several times]

 Announcer: You know who else said they looked good in hats? Attila the hun.

  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Unusually for a Kid Com these days, averted. Episodes are named for the (usually)musical guest.
  • Improbably Predictable: In a school news sketch, one of the anchors keeps handing the other letters responding to his response to the previous letter. At one point, the other anchor asks "when did you find the time to write all these letters and how did you know what I was going to say?", which is replied to with a letter saying "Because you're very predictable".
  • Ironic Echo: In the "MC Grammar" sketch.

 Rapper: You say we rhymin' bad?

MC Grammar: No, you're rhyming badly.

(Later))

Rapper #1: You wanna beat him bad?

Rapper #2: Let's beat him badly.
