Johnny Test is a low-budget Canadian-American cartoon that aired in 2005-2014 on Teletoon in Canada and on The WB (Season 1) The CW (Season 2-3 Season 1 Reruns) Cartoon Network (Season 4-6 Season 1-3 Reruns) in North America.

Why It Sucks

This will only focus on Seasons 2-6

  1. It's infamous for ripping off other cartoons, most notably Dexter's Laboratory, The Fairly OddParents, Jonny Quest, Scooby-Doo, Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, Doraemon and Tom & Jerry.
  2. The episodes are almost always the same thing every time over and over again (something goes wrong and Johnny and Dukey (sometimes with other characters) have to fix it). It's a trademark example of "same s**t, different episode".
  3. The theme song rips off Green Day's "American Idiot".
  4. Annoying and horrible voice acting that wasted the talents of James Arnold Taylor, Ian James Corrlet, Ashleigh Ball, etc.
  5. Susan and Mary's characters are literally just them drooling over boys and giving Johnny dangerous stuff.
  6. Extremely terrible Flash animation.
  7. Horrid designs for most of the characters.
  8. Johnny Test is a very unlikable character because he is a huge spoiled and selfish brat. Heck, he's spoiled enough to even give Caillou a run for his money.
  9. Overuse of toilet jokes, such as Johnny Test farting on the bad guys to defeat them when he is dressed as a superhero (Johnny X), which is absolutely nonsensical and disgusting.
  10. The whipping sound that plays every time the characters move their arms will get on your last nerve.
  11. Terrible and unfunny humor.
  12. Poorly-written scripts.
  13. The background music in every episode gets really annoying and is used frequently throughout each episode.
  14. It destroyed the reputation of the creator, Scott Fellows, who created one of the best Nick shows ever aired (Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide).
  15. The show's hatedom due to a lot of hate art, comments, and videos from people who may take opinions way too far.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Dukey The Dog, Susan and Mary are the only tolerable characters.
  2. Season 1 was considered much better because the animation was nice and they used an original theme song.
  3. It was the last surviving show from the pre-2010 rebrand.
  4. Some episodes and plots can be tolerable
  5. The action can be entertaining at times
