Fur TV is a British comedy adult puppet show aired in 2008 on MTV One. The show uses Muppet style puppetry where the characters are shown to undertake activities such as drinking and having sex.
Originally a short film created by Chris Waitt and Henry Trotter which won BBC's Greenlight Award for Comedy in 2002, and the Rose d'Or for Best Pilot at the Montreaux TV Festival in 2004. Television broadcast was scheduled to 2003, the pilot finally aired on 28 February 2004 on BBC Two. Another pilot called Furry Avenue was made in 2004.
The main characters are 3 frog-like puppets named Fat Ed Tubbs, Lapeño Enriquez and Mervin J Minky. Fat Ed is a foul-mouthed, violent, beer swilling heavy metal fanatic, Lapeño is a Brazillian sex god who is irresistible to women (and even to some men), while Mervin is a perpetually cross-eyed, mentally challenged and self-abusing pervert with a chronic addiction to masturbation.
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...
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...
Multi-award winning adult puppet comedy show for MTV. Outrageous and anarchic, Fur TV was given the coveted 'South Park' slot in the MTV broadcast schedule and, over the course of it's 22 episodes, became the most widely syndicated show in the history of MTV Europe. Hipster culture magazine Dazed & Confused dubbed creator Chris "the badass Jim Henson".

Cette émission imagine que des marionnettes poilues ("fur") vivent dans notre monde et se sont intégrées à la société. Comme dans Avenue Q, la série se situe entre Le Muppet Show, pour le design des personnages qui ressemblent à ceux de Jim Henson, et le dessin animé South Park, pour l'humour décalé et outrageant. Les trois héros du show sont des marionnettes et s'adonnent à tous les excès : sexe, drogue, alcool et violence.
D'autres vidéos ont également vu le jour, tels que de courts spots de promotion pour la santé sexuelle sur MTV , ou des montages alternatifs d'épisodes. Bien que rapidement arrêtée, la série a continué de circuler sur Internet grâce notamment au sketch "Le Putain de Guide Poilu du Metal" ("Fat Ed's Furry Fucking Guide To Metal"), qui est l'extrait le plus connu de Fur TV.
Les personnages principaux de cette série sont trois marionnettes, Mervin J Minky, Lapeño Enriquez et Ed Tubbs (surnommé "Fat Ed"), des colocataires très différents de caractère souvent désargentés. Ils vivent à Londres ou dans sa banlieue et habitent une rue appelée Furry Lane. Ils sont de nationalités différentes cependant.
Mervin est une petite bête frêle et orange obsédée par le sexe et accro à la masturbation, qui reste des heures dans sa chambre pour regarder du matériel pornographique en se caressant. Bien que dérangeant, il est aussi gentil, serviable, naïf et surtout attardé et idiot.
C'est le souffre-douleur de Ed, une marionnette bleue obèse, bourrue et colérique qui n'hésite pas à le brutaliser. Ed est fan de heavy metal et de films gore et passe son temps dans le canapé à manger de la junk food et à boire des bières. On apprend rapidement que c'est un immigré américain qui n'a pas encore de carte de résidence britannique et refuse de rentrer aux États-Unis. Ed s'appelait Frank à l'origine dans le pilote de la série.
Lapeño est quant à lui le séducteur de la bande et collectionne plusieurs conquêtes par jour. C'est une petite marionnette verte qui porte toujours des lunettes de soleil. Originaire du Brésil, il joue de son charme latin, de son accent chantant et de ses talents de DJ pour attirer un maximum d'humaines dans son lit. L'émission le présente comme un dieu du sexe qui a du pourtant fuir lui aussi son pays pour des raisons douteuses.
Ed et Lapeño méprisent généralement Mervin, qui est le déclencheur de plusieurs histoires de Fur TV, et lui mettent les tâches ménagères et le règlement du loyer sur le dos. Leur quotidien est ainsi fait d'humiliations et de conflits, mais ils ne se séparent jamais. Deux autres marionnettes apparaissent dans le pilote de la série mais n'ont pas été exploités par la suite.
