The term charges animadas can be translated as something alongside animated cartoons. However, in Portuguese, the word charge is used to refer to editorial cartoons. These works consist of Flash animations of short length, showing some humorous, generally related to recent events and situations.
The term charge-okê is a fusion of the words charge and karaoke, properly adapted to Portuguese. It refers to some of the site's charges animadas that consist on musical parodies of popular music hits. The parodies are usually sung by a character who has something to do with the lyrics. For example, Brasileiro e sua consciência - Lonely, published on January 26, 2006, is a parody of the hit Lonely, sung by Akon. The modified lyrics talk about the indecision of a mid-class Brazilian on which candidate to choose in the Brazilian president elections in 2006. The charges-okê are published about once a week along with other regular charges.
