One of the distinguishing features of Drawn Together is the way the show kills off its own characters with great frequency. In addition to numerous guest characters getting killed, the show even has its main cast die with great frequency, only to return alive and uninjured, often within the time frame of a single episode. This is a parody of an animation cliché in which countless cartoon characters either are killed and later seen living again, or survive situations that would realistically certainly result in death.

Drawn Together is notable for taking the idea of discontinuity even further than most other cartoons (which typically have very loose continuity as it is). On South Park, though Kenny comes back to life in the next episode as if nothing had happened, he at least remains dead for the rest of the episode in which the death occurs. The Drawn Together housemates, however, are often brought back alive and well in the very same episode. On occasion, the character comes back immediately; this practice is parodied with the character of Xandir, a video game character who instantaneously respawns in a flash of light after each death (see "Gay Bash"). Some episodes even feature the same character dying multiple times. Interestingly enough, however, when characters are in great danger as part of the episode's plot (Wooldoor in "Wooldoor Sockbat's Giggle-Wiggle Funny Tickle Non-Traditional Progressive Multicultural Roundtable!", Toot in "Alzheimer's That Ends Well", and Xandir in "A Very Special Drawn Together Afterschool Special"), they generally survive. The following is a list of the episodes featuring the temporary demise of one or more of the eight housemates. Bold type indicates housemates who perish in an episode.

Season OneEdit

Toot dead

Toot's first death.

  • Hot Tub
    • Xandir dies multiple times in the deleted scene. He is seen constantly jumping off of a moving platform and landing in a pit of lava but he keept on returning because of his extra lives resurrecting him. 
    • Toot dies four times in this episode. First, she hits her head on the coffee table after inhaling her own CO2 from a balloon, splitting her skull open and breaking her neck. She dies again in a flashback sequence when she cuts her own head off after failing to get Xandir to notice her. She dies a third time during the tequila brunch when she hits her head again, duplicating her first death (with the addition of a sombrero). Finally, she is viciously gored and then eaten by Ling-Ling after unwittingly accepting combat with him. Toot is also heard squeaking from Ling-Ling's mouth when he smiles after Clara mentions that Ling-Ling helped her realize that she was being racist.
    • The extended DVD version of this episode contains a sequence where Wooldoor escapes from the bubble he became encased in when Spanky farted in the hot tub while he was underwater, but discovers he cannot live outside the bubble, dries up and dies instantly (a reference to boy in the bubble syndrome).
Xandir killing himself

One of Xandir's many suicides.

  • Gay Bash
    • Xandir, trying to commit suicide, stabs himself to death 49 times. However, as a video game character, he has many lives in reserve, and eventually gives up before exhausting nearly all of them.
  • Requiem for a Reality Show
    • Toot, Clara, Xandir, and Ling-Ling suffocate after losing an oxygen competition. This event is described by Toot in a flashback; the housemates are all alive in the main part of the episode.
  • The Other Cousin
    • Wooldoor shows Xandir and Toot a filmstrip about the hallucinogenic secretions of the psychoactive toad and Ling-Ling, using his eyes as the projector. At one point, the film melts, and Wooldoor's eyes burst into flames; the filmstrip continues, however, and proceeds to show Wooldoor dying, being buried, and ascending to heaven (which may have been showing a previous time that this happened if Wooldoor's eyes may have stopped burning and projected this).
Llcar

Ling-Ling's first death.

  • Dirty Pranking No. 2
    • Ling-Ling suffocates when Xandir and Captain Hero leave him in an unventilated car on a hot day. He is seen half-decayed, bloated and crawling with maggots.
    • Ling-Ling dies again, along with Clara, Spanky, Foxxy, Captain Hero, Xandir, and Wooldoor, when alien robots vaporize the entire cast. Toot is not shown dying in the episode, as she is not in the house when this occurs, but as the episode suggests that the aliens destroyed all humanity, she must be considered to have died as well.
  • The One Wherein There Is a Big Twist
    • During their challenge in the Apprentice parody, the guys accidentally crash the plane they are trying to land on top of Ling-Ling. Ling-Ling, although pronounced dead and out of the competition by Bucky Bucks, is alive again by the time of the Jell-O fight, and even serves as Toot's second during the match.
    • At the end of the episode, all of the housemates spiraled out of control in a helicopter where it crash landed and blew up in a fiery explosion. This was originally intended to be them dying, but when the show was renewed for another season the next episode, directly continued this one, where the script was changed, making them all survive the explosion, non-canonizing the deaths of Wooldoor, Foxxy, Toot, Spanky, Clara, Ling-Ling, Xandir, and Captain Hero.

Season TwoEdit

  • The One Wherein There Is a Big Twist, Part II
    • Scorpion from Mortal Kombat pulls Xandir's head off while demonstrating a fatality. Since Xandir is a video game character, however, he respawns immediately.
    • Wooldoor hanged himself out of depression for leaving the Drawn Together house. Later in the episode, he was revealed to have woken up after his death and returned to the Drawn Together House.
    • Spanky is flattened by the Monty Python foot. This is merely a gag, however; Spanky is alive and well in the very next scene.
    • The housemates play Russian roulette, and Ling-Ling is the loser, but only because of recoil.
    • Toot is blown up at the end by the natives of the island she was stranded on. We then see it raining bits of her all over the island. However, when she lands back in the Drawn Together house, she shows no sign of injury.
    • Strawberry Sweetcake was killed by Toot after she mistook her for candy and ate her. Her blood was seen on the ground when she was eaten.
Lldeath2

Ling-Ling in ghost form.

  • Foxxy vs. the Board of Education
    • In a parody of unmasking villains in the Scooby-Doo cartoons, Captain Hero rips Toot's head off as she is being arrested for some unspecified offense, leaving him to determine "This is no fat monster... It's a blood fountain!"
    • After saving Foxxy from a beast resembling a Rancor from Return of the Jedi, Ling-Ling is crushed to death by the monster. This is a rare instance in which the character clearly remains dead for the rest of the episode, though he does come back as a ghost.
    • Clara gets eaten by a nazi dinosaur. 
  • Little Orphan Hero
    • As the housemates try to convince depressed quadruple amputee Jeff not to commit suicide, Toot hangs herself while Foxxy is in the confessional.
    • After Jeff announces to the housemates that he's actually an undercover cop named Jeffrey, Clara, not wanting to go back to prison, jumps out the window.
Toot's confessional death

Toot, one of the victims of Bob's killing spree.

  • Clum Babies
    • At the end of the episode, Bob the Cucumber snaps and goes on a shooting spree, killing Clara, Foxxy, Spanky, Captain Hero, Xandir, Toot, and Ling-Ling, as well as most of the episode's guest characters and finally himself. The only housemate to survive the carnage is Wooldoor, who presumably will use his Clum Babies to resurrect everyone once he finishes masturbating.
  • Terms of Endearment
    • Spanky fed an entire gallon of soda to Wooldoor, making him get really huge and then explode into pieces but he was seen alive again, shortly afterwards and for the rest of the episode.
    • Clara mentioned that along with several of their camera men, they lost Toot to Super Shrimp Thursday at Long John Silver and she was absent for the rest of the entire episode. However, when Captain Hero turned back time and recreated history, he made it so that the events of that episode never happened. In his new universe, a recreation of Toot was seen in his new universe where her entire body was comprised of a bunch of boobs.
    • After Captain Hero accidentally causes Foxxy to turn into a minstrel show caricature, Mickey Mouse has her captured and taken to an erasement camp, where she is erased from existence despite Captain Hero's efforts to save her. Although the housemates mourn her loss (one of the few times a character's death is considered permanent), Captain Hero changes history so that the events of the episode never happened. In his new recreation of the universe, Foxxy was seen alive again, but in a new form where her entire body was made out of a bunch of boobs.
Ling-Ling's seppuku

Ling-Ling comitting seppuku.

  • Captain Girl
    • After losing a game of "Not-it!" to determine who should have sex with Toot to impregnate her, Ling-Ling commits seppuku. He was seen alive again many times, later in the episode.
    • Wooldoor dies multiple times in this episode. His first death was being eaten alive by Toot. He was seen alive again when Toot crapped him out and he was in the form of a puddle, saying "That's one irritable bowel". His next was when he asked Spanky how you horriby penis someone to death. Spanky unzipped his pants and told him that he was only going to demonstrate it one more time. He was not actually seen penising him to death, but it can be implied that he did it multiple times before judging by how Spanky said "I'm only going to show this to you one more time." Shortly after that, Wooldoor is seen traveling into the future in a time machine, and his self from the future comes up to try and stop him, warning him about something he's about to do that will go wrong. He is too late, however, and it leads to his body vanishing away. Wooldoor is later seen killing his parents by running them over in his time machine. Although the original Wooldoor was never seen fading away, his future self was, which still counts and it can only be implied that the same thing happened to him at that point in time as well.
    • The housemates (aside from Hero and Wooldoor who were escaping with a wheelchair) presumably all drown when the city dam bursts and floods the city. So, Clara, Toot, Xandir, Ling-Ling, Foxxy, and Spanky died. Although it was only a gag, Wooldoor was seen traveling into the past at the beginning of this same scene, so if everyone in the house died, then they must have somehow come back to life as they were all seen alive throughout every scene in the episode that took place before then, that is until Ling-Ling killed himself and Wooldoor got penised to death and also started an endless cycle of versions of himself vanishing from all of time and space.
  • Xandir and Tim, Sitting in a Tree
    • As the housemates prepare to confront the Entertainment Weekly critic who gave them a bad review, Spanky tells the housemates that they have one last chance to chicken out. Clara, Foxxy, Toot, Wooldoor, and Ling-Ling run and jump out the window.
Captain Hero killing Spanky

Captain Hero on his killing spree.

  • The Lemon-AIDS Walk
    • Durning Hero's aid train, Ling-Ling is seen stand in his 4 feet, Captain Hero smash him like piggy bank in it.
    • After the housemates confront Hero about his steroid use, he flies into a rage and murders them all (as well as the twelve year-old girl and donkey they brought him) in various gruesome ways; their corpses are seen at the end of his rampage. Ling-Ling dies a second time , and Toot, Foxxy, Xandir, Spanky, Clara, and Wooldoor all die as well. However, the cast returns, as usual, and Foxxy and Xandir later speak with Hero without mentioning his killing them.
Spanky after being shot a lot

Spanky gets shot multiple times in a fight with the police.

  • A Very Special Drawn Together Afterschool Special
    • Captain Hero tries to throw Clara out of a window, but misses the window and throws her through a wall and into a tree. Her mangled corpse is later seen still hanging there.
    • Xandir is asked to defecate on top of a glass table while Ling-Ling lies underneath it. However, the table shatters, impaling Ling-Ling with shards of glass. Foxxy and Xandir then chop his body into pieces with a meat cleaver and feed them to an alligator.
    • Spanky shoots Foxxy when she and Xandir try to escape. He then shoots Toot when she interferes with him while he is trying to kill Xandir, and she soon dies of the gunshot wound. Finally, Spanky is gunned down by the police.
  • Alzheimer's That Ends Well
    • After Toot inadvertently reveals the seniors' secret that Alzheimer's disease is a made-up disease, they try various means to kill her. When all their attempts fail, and Toot escapes, the seniors bring in Boba Fett to track her down. Boba Fett rigs up a car bomb on Toot's scooter to kill "the fat pig", but Spanky is the one who ends up being blown to bits.
  • The Drawn Together Clip Show
    • When Wooldoor discovers that his entire life the past two years has been watched by millions of people, he panics (since he is supposed to be in the Witness Protection Program) and jumps out the window, plummeting to his death. He immediately returns after the commercial break, now in disguise.

Season ThreeEdit

  • Freaks & Greeks
    • Toot gets stuck in the door of a rocket during takeoff, which goes off course and later collides with a flying car driven by Captain Hero, killing both of them in a massive explosion.
  • Unrestrainable Trainable
    • At one point, Clara hits Foxxy in the head with a glass bottle, causing her head to break into pieces as though it were made of glass.
    • When Captain Hero and Xandir meet Hero's sister, Captain She-Ro, she and Hero perform a ritual freak out dance and in the midst of it, Hero launches Xandir through the porch cieling in She-Ro's house. Xandir's bloodied corpse is taken into the house, where he comes back alive, uninjured, and ingoring what had just happened to him. His life, however, does not last as when Captain Hero takes off, he has a string tied to Xandir's nipple ring which tears it off, taking his heart ou of the hole in his chest with him and kills him.
    • Later, both Clara and Wooldoor get blown up during the explosion Captain Hero's son caused by hugging a nuclear bomb shaped like Winnie-the-Pooh. It is likely that everyone except Captain Hero (who is the only one confirmed alive) is also killed, but their deaths are not shown.
Clara horribly dead

Toot wearing Clara's dead body as a towel.

  • N.R.A.y RAY
    • After he hunts with assault weapons, Hero brings home all the animals he killed. One of his trophies is Wooldoor dressed as his hunting dog.
    • When Toot wishes for Clara to be removed from the house, Ray-Ray makes her wish come true by killing her and hanging her carcass next to the shower stall.
    • When Captain Hero puts his pistol in his mouth and sucks on it, the trigger goes off and a crackling sound is made and Hero's eyes are wide open. This means he shot himself in the mouth.
  • Mexican't Buy Me Love
    • When Ling-Ling talks about the battle to put Toot to bed, the scene cuts to a pajama-clad Toot running around like a child while Ling-Ling chases after her. Toot then jumps over a railing and promptly explodes. She dies again toward the end of the episode when, after rescuing Ling-Ling from the King of Mexico, she crashes the spaceship she is piloting into a mountain. This is the second time Toot has died more than once in an episode, the first being "Hot Tub".
    • At the end of the episode, a giant meteor collides with Earth and crushes the people at the Drawn Together house, including Captain Hero, Foxxy, Spanky, Clara, Xandir, and Wooldoor. Only Ling-Ling, who was in Mexico rather than at the house, survives.
Captain Hero's confessional suicide

Captain Hero explains the housemate deaths to the audience.

  • Lost in Parking Space, Part One
    • During a confessional scene, Captain Hero demonstrates the show's lack of continuity by saying, "No one really dies," then, to demonstrate it, cuts off his own head and walks back into the confessional unharmed less than a second after his headless body collapses to the floor.
  • Lost in Parking Space, Part Two
    • After Toot screams that the van is being attacked by a polar bear/scorpion monster, Ling-Ling is suffocated during the ensuing panic. The group then proceeds to eat his remains. Later in the episode, Wooldoor quips, "We can't all keep dying and then coming back to life the next episode, it's totally illogical!", upon which Ling-Ling briefly returns to life and says, "Tell me about it!", another jab at the show's own running gag. Ling-Ling's revival does not last, however, as by the end of the episode, he is dead again, and the group uses his skin as a sail for the escape craft they construct.
    • At the end of the episode, when Xandir momentarily forgets Spanky's order not to say "drawn together", Spanky makes good on his promise from earlier in the episode and smashes his skull with a tire iron.
Ling-Ling kills Xandir in half

Ling-Ling on his Xandir only killing spree.

  • Charlotte's Web of Lies
    • When Xandir shaves Ling-Ling's eyebrows while drunk, a very angry Ling-Ling responds by killing him. Even though Xandir immediately respawns, like usual, Ling-Ling proceeds to keep killing him until all his remaining lives are gone. But in the end of the episode, Xandir appears alive with the other guys and drinks to gay scenes.
    • When Hero is going undercover to kill his arch-nemesis, he kills Spanky with a crossbow, then kills Clara and Foxxy in the hot tub, and finally gasses Wooldoor.
  • Drawn Together Babies
    • Sid was shown to have died from sleeping on his stomach and getting S.I.D.S. as his dead corpse was heard decomposing in his bassinet.
  • Nipple Ring-Ring Goes to Foster Care
    • Ling-Ling died three times in this episode and was resurrected on all three instances. His first death was when he passed out at his party from drinking one bottle of beer. He was brought back to life by Dr. Wooldoor shortly after. He does again in a video of the gang opening his head and eating his brain was seen on the TV. He was obviously brought back to life again as he was seen alive in the episode itself which took place in the future, which is the same proof for his resurrection for his third death, being in another clip from a made up episode. Ling-Ling was in the form of Garfield and Odie the dog was seen opening his brain with a spoon an eating it.
    • After the group lets their Zen garden go to pot, Toot is devoured by a giant sandworm while standing in it.
    • Captain Hero temporarily vanished from existence for a split second after his 12 year old self nearly shot himself in the head. His past self didn't really die, but Captain Hero himself was technically dead for a very small split second. This marks the fastest transition from a character being dead to coming back to life.
    • When Hero takes off to retrieve the photograph his younger self left, he flies through the ceiling. A chunk of the ceiling falls down, crushing Xandir to death.
Clara gets crushed

The last death in the series. (excluding the movie)

  • American Idol Parody Clip Show
    • Clara had her head and upper body crushed by two giant wooden logs reading "Not safe" when she was sent to the Not Safe Bench. Right after that, she was seen to be perfectly alive and only had a comically flattened body when she went over there.

OtherEdit

  • Previously on Drawn Together segments
    • Captain Hero and Spanky suffocated Xandir with a pillow after he tried to start a pillow fight with them.
    • Clara, Foxxy, Toot, Ling-Ling, Xandir, Spanky, and Captain Hero were all eaten alive by a giant Wooldoor.
  • The movie
    • Clara, after having her arms cut off in the prison, gets killed by the guards.
    • Wooldoor accidentally opens a box with an eraser bomb in it.
    • Spanky steps on an unexploded eraser bomb and gets himself, along with Foxxy, Xandir, Ling-Ling, Captain Hero, and Toot get erased in the final scene.

TriviaEdit

  • 75% of all Drawn Together episodes (27 of 36) have had at least one of their 8 main characters die in them, not counting other episodes with other characters dying, such as Sid from Drawn Together Babies as mentioned above.
  • Captain Hero has died the least of everyone in the series, having only died 9 times.
  • Xandir has died the most of everyone on the series, having died 66 times.
  • Toot was the first and last housemate to die in the series. She first died in the episode Hot Tub, and was the last housemate to be killed during the Movie (along with the other housemates).
  • The episode The One Wherein There Is a Big Twist was originally intended to serve the series finale because the creators were oblivious to the fact that their show would soon get renewed for another season. At the end of the episode, the entire cast dies in an airplane crash at the end, making this count as a housemate death for everyone. However, when they show got renewed the episode's continuity episode, showed them all survive the explosion to continue the plot, therefore non-canonizing what would count as the official noteworthy housemate deaths of every member of the cast.
