This could be serious. Like AIDS serious.

The Cloak is an original web animation created by the master of random comedy, Jason Steele, at Film Cow Productions. The plot is pretty simple: the Cloak (self described "private investigator and life-long fighter of the international Communist conspiracy") teams up with his sidekick, the disembodied head of film-noir legend Robert Mitchum. Together, they set out to destroy the evil forces of Communism, as well as many innocent bystanders.

Tropes used in The Cloak include:
  • Aborted Arc: We never do find out the fate of Joshua, the Libertarian Lizard.
    • Considering the mental state of the two protagonists, it's possible that they just forgot about the whole mission.
  • Affably Evil: "Well, we gotta get this body out of the building. Oh, how about seafood for lunch?
  • An Axe to Grind
  • Ax Crazy: The Cloak, quite literally.

And that's what you get. You get my Ax of Capitalism... right in your face.

I believe in America!
By Jove, we've done it! Pull the hatch forward! What year is it, good sir?
I like shrimpies.
Dearest me, I've forgotten my tulips.

The Cloak: Well it seems the law has been laid down, Robert.
Robert: What's "the law?"
The Cloak: Harsh and unforgiving, and now we're on the lam, outcasts of society. Pushed away from the large, warm bosom of Lady America. It's not fair, Robert, I want that bosom!
Robert: Well you did axe up two innocent people!
