Billed as an "outrageous comedy" by MTV, this sitcom revolves around three puppets and the naughty things they get up to.

They rock out, put out and fall out, cage-fight, hang out in illegal dentists' drinking dens, try to avoid drug dealers, cannibals and deranged landlords, pull the hottest girls and clone themselves...

Leading the pack with his laid-back charm and smooth moves is 'love god' Lapeno Enriquez. With a different glamorous chica on his arm every night, he is the heart, soul and thong of Fur TV.

Edward 'Fat Ed' Tubbs has just three simple passions in life - beer, food and heavy metal - and fronts the self-styled 'heaviest band in the world' Stinkhole with his customary lack of tact and spectacular acts of random violence.

Good-natured serial self-abuser Mervin J. Minky is the third puppet. A firm enthusiast of friction fiction, he would love a girlfriend, but that would mean him meeting real women... So back to the mags he goes, as often as furrily possible...
