• 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.

Our heroes.

BBC children's fantasy sitcom, three seasons broadcast 2008-11. Stars Dick and Dom as bumbling royal brothers who must collect ingredients for a magic potion to cure a plague that has struck their homeland, Fyredor, aided by Inept Mage Mannitol and thieving servant Lutin.

The group wander all over the Fantasy World Map of Bottom World- sometimes literally, as the Lemony Narrator, Terry Jones, explains that they couldn't afford to film the incredibly exciting action that's going on, so they show a dotted line on a map dashing away from pictures of dragons instead. Each episode they have to defeat a Monster of the Week, or meet some wacky countryfolk who hinder them in finding the next revolting or impossible ingredient. In the third season, the plot switches to their attempts to get home before the newly revealed Big Bad can stop them.

This was Dick and Dom's first major CBBC project after Dick and Dom in da Bungalow, and there are plenty of ShoutOuts to Bungalow games and jokes- DI Harry Batt turns up as a Sherriff, for example.

Fairly Troperiffic- see long list below- although many of the tropes are applicable to antagonists or settings from individual episodes (and are therefore slight spoilers.)
