These guys are not funny.

The Castlefunnies is the hilariously unfunny old cartoon written by Lem Sportsinterviews and Levert Burtmore. The plot revolves around The King of Town complaining to his Poopsmith.

Lookit those noses!
Wet that graphite!

Since it was a form of treason at the time to print the word "poop," The Poopsmith was referred to as "Mushy Chamberpot", which might be the funniest part of the cartoon. "Mushy" spoke using only the newly-discovered comma.

Readership was low, and several attempts to gain popularity were tried. A crossover involving Strong Bad and Homestar Runner worked until the sole remaining reader died. Later, a "King Castlefunny Pencil Moistener" was released, but since the dry pencil scare of '47 lasted only 3 days, they didn't sell many.

The character style may be based on The Wizard of Id, a comic by American cartoonists Brant Parker and Johnny Hart.
