Nothing less than an insult to your intelligence.
24 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Nickelodeon has done me plenty of wrong in the past five years. The Penguins From Madagascar is the only exception, and after that wonderful show, I thought maybe Nickelodeon had turned itself around, and Fanboy and Chum Chum wouldn't give me a brain aneurysm. But...if you liked The Penguins From Madagascar, you'll want Fanboy and Chum Chum destroyed, and vice versa. Fanboy and Chum Chum is a show with no dignity, class or individuality. My younger brother and I tried watching a few episodes, and it's so unwatchable that we couldn't heckle it properly.

It's been explained in detail by other reviews here just why the show is so awful...hideous character designed, forced gross humour (one episode had a twenty-five second sequence of burping), and story lines so anti-climatic and predictable that it's disappointing. I say "disappointing" because I've been trying to get my work submitted to an animation studio, mostly action-adventure fantasy projects, and knowing a show about two disgusting children with irritating voices and ADHD was approved and *brought to life* actually makes me feel worthless. Apparently this generation of children deserve only loud in-your-face Spongebob Squarepants clones.

Many of the jokes revolve around "random" humour and references to movies the target demographic would have never heard of, including The Boy In The Bubble and The Mist. Random humour is a cop-out to everyone watching. You're set up for something funny, at least amusing, only to get "I LIKE PIE" or something of the like screamed in your face. This happens too much for it to be excusable.

People defend this cartoon with the weathered "it's just a kid's show" excuse. These people have obviously not seen bold things like Batman: The Animated Series, Gargoyles or Avatar: The Last Airbender. Heck, even Jem was brilliant in its own way. These cartoons actually treated their young viewers like they had functioning brains, and could follow a multi-episode story without the characters screaming random words in their face. People have decided that no matter how trashy and stupid a cartoon is, it's "just for kids". I remember the cartoons I had when I was young - this is the late nineties - and some of them were incredible. If I grew up with Fanboy and Chum Chum, I'd have grown up a disgusting and intolerable person. Please, People Who Defend This Show, make your kids watch some DuckTales or Spectacular Spiderman. What your child watches as a kid influences their behaviour and their mental development. I cringe to think a child is growing up to be Fanboy.

So, to reiterate shortly...putrid, unaesthetic character designs. Clichéd plots. Excessive random humour and gross humour. Bizarre cultural references. If you decide to watch it, your brain goes into an automatic defensive shutdown mode because it thinks you're trying to kill yourself. Please, don't watch this show if it's on. Go for some Spongebob reruns from 1998-2002 or something classic you already love. You'll do yourself a favour.
