Fur TV is a comedy show with puppets shown on MTV ONE in the United Kingdom and MTV2 in Canada. The show uses Muppets style puppetry, but in a more adult setting. The characters are shown to undertake adult activities such as drinking and having sex.
The main characters are Fat Ed Tubbs, Lapeño Enriquez and Mervin J Minky. Fat Ed is a foul-mouthed, violent, beer swilling heavy metal obsessive, Lapeño is a Brazilian sex fiend, who has a way with women and has even worked as a pimp, while Mervin is a hapless, mentally retarded, self-abusing fanatic with an addiction to masturbation.
Each episode will generally relate around one of the characters specific traits:
* Lapeno and his ability to seduce any woman he wants and his career as a DJ.
* Fat Ed\\\\\\\'s love of heavy metal and extreme violence.
* Mervin\\\\\\\'s sexual deviance and/or his idiotic good nature.
The story-lines are allowed much greater freedom owing to the main characters being puppets. This fact is often played-on. For instance:
* The episode where Mervin, Lapeno and Fit Ed (Fat Ed\\\\\\\'s well-toned cousin) end up taking a boat-ride up Fat Ed\\\\\\\'s ass, is only possible due to their puppet (Fur) status. The ending to this episode closely follows (and affectionately parodies) Heart of Darkness.
* There is also an episode where Lapeno & Mervin are drafted into Ed\\\\\\\'s band, Stinkhole and Mervin accidentally discovers the (Until then mythical) Brown-note (This is a note, that when played loud enough, will cause any listeners to immediately evacuate their bowels).
