As usual, Things take a Different direction in the middle of it. Literally, The first episode is about Pickle growing a Talking zit on his butt. And its worse when they insult the Teen demographic's Intelligence by making everyone around him think its so Cool! Why? That's Disgusting! The comedy in Pickle and Peanut never made me laugh much, There's been a few instances where they were funny, But still kind of Pandery anyway. And not everyone is really into this kind of Comedy. It seems to constantly parody Internet memes and Trends of this Current generation. It seems like a nice reference, But it just completely ruins it anyway. We have been getting Dubstep Music, Live Action costumed people, Heavy Metal, Hot Ladies, Trippy Visuals, Quick Voice Acting, Kittens, Awful Animated CGI (Really?), Video Games, Parties, etc. Everything. And usually gets uncomfortable when the show acts like It's comedy gold and keeps going with the Joke. The episode "Body Spray" has this part at the end with a Gross looking kitten, It doesn't look comfortable to look at at all! And it zooms close up to him for longer than 1min slowly as it plays Sad piano music. Who the heck asked for this? Did the writers think that was hilarious and a good thing for Kids this generation? The joke is supposed to be that it's not cute, But when its Disgusting and Disturbing, Zooming into it just makes us cringe even harder, I can see kids getting nightmares from that scene because of how long they hold onto it.
I admire that it tries to appeal to teenagers, But the jokes are just so stupid! The animation isn't unpleasant to look at if you don't mind Greeny browns and Orangey peaches or Drawn characters into a Flash animator. Because I really don't mind things like that. But in comparison to Cartoons on Nickelodeon or CN, There's a Big difference in effort. The show has these Live Action or Puppet close ups or changes randomly, I think it's trying to Be similar to CN's "Chowder" Because that cartoon did the same thing with Puppets and Stop Motion. But here, You either get a Uncomfortable laugh or a cringe out of it. Sometimes it can make you smile for the heck of it, While other times it's freaking disturbing or disgusting. The Voice acting or Music isn't bad though. Nothing about the show should really give you a bad experience for your ears. But its not extraordinary either.
If you have watched cartoons like "Sanjay and Craig" "Teen Titans Go" "Robot and Monster" and "Grojband" and enjoyed it, You should probably enjoy this cartoon, But I recommend seeing a Episode, Even if it doesn't sound pleasant, Just so you you know how awful it really is. The only episode I thought was good was "Scalped" and even then it had problems. That's really all I have to say.
