Tropedia

  • 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.

File:Squidbillies-show.jpg

In the hills of Georgia live a family of hillbillies. They're also squids. These squidbillies drink, make meth, mud-bog, and destroy property. The characters are:

  • Early Cuyler, an extremely violent and drunk redneck. His hat always changes between shows, usually saying something like "Booty Hunter", "Sonny Lied!", or "Guns Don't Kill People, I Do". He has gone to prison and is often scolded by the sheriff for making pinecone moonshine or holding up the convenience store. He was made CEO of the Corrupt Corporate Executive's company to act as a scapegoat.
  • Rusty Cuyler, Early's son. He is more naïve and morally centered, but is also dumb and gullible. He is a "Well Done, Son" Guy.
  • Granny Cuyler, the feeble and senile mother of Early and Lil (maybe their granny or great granny, it's unclear the exact relation). She often sees visions of squid-Jesus.
  • Lil, who runs a meth operation/beauty salon. Not quite a common character.
  • The Sheriff, who is a nice guy that usually just complains about crimes happening in the area. Dies fairly often (like most of the characters), but is replaced by another sheriff from a sheriff clone farm. Unlike the Cuylers, he's human(ish).
  • Dan Halen, the Corrupt Corporate Executive and owner of Dan Halen Industries. His company appears to make sheetrock, but really dabbles in violent mutant corn, corrosive body spray, baby death traps, and foreign arms sales. Dan is a (usually) naked, pear-shaped blob of flesh with long red hair; good luck assigning a species to him. Revealed in an episode focused on him to have existed throughout the history of mankind in the exact same form, and to have been a part of many terrible events. Including the German Nazi Party.

This Adult Swim show premiered in October 2005.


This show provides examples of:

  • Abusive Parents: Early has knifed and shot Rusty a few times, among other things.
  • The Alcoholic: Early Cuyler is rarely without his homemade pine cone "party liquor".

 Rusty: So, Jesus is here with us right now?

Tom Treebow: Yes, he's right there... he's wearing an invisibility cloak. Just like the Predator.

Sheriff: (beat) What Tom is trying to say...

Tom Treebow: Watch out Jesus he's got a laser!

  Narrator: "That large building over there is Dan Halen Sheetrock; they specialize in sheetrock, sheetrock mud, sheetrock screws, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, global mass media, third world covert military operations and, THE BABY HAMMOCK!"

  • Musical Episode: "America: Why I Love Her".
  • My Little Panzer
  • Negative Continuity: How many times have the world exploded in this series?
    • Somewhat subverted with Sheriff's many deaths, as one episode revealed a massive clone farm that Dan Halen breeds for election purposes. The Sheriff's deaths are even Lampshaded.

 Rusty: "Daddy, I think he's dead!"

Early: "Not the first time."
