Dude I watched this a kid and as I remember there was one episode where Fred got some nasty "sabertooth" teeth that was guaranteed to explode just because he ate too much chocolate
i'm sorry but what

For some god forsaken reason I really liked the Fred movies as a kid, but even as a fan of those I have and always hated this show. - EvanWellens

This show isn't just cringeworthy, the fact that it exists is cringeworthy. - 445956

I think Andi Mack should be here, just saying, don't hate please

Am I the only one who thought this show wasn't that bad. - Selfiefansman

This show isn't even bad.

Andi Mack is. I hope it ends very soon. Plus, when Andi Mack ends, I'll sing songs of joy, happiness, and relief

3 Total Bellas

If it weren't for Daniel Bryan, the show would be unbearable. As is it's pretty hard to endure. - truckturner

WWE really wants to shove the Bellas down our throats. The show isn’t even good. The Bellas are annoying. They are so overrated that they are getting their own show when anyone else deserves their own show. And they already have a YouTube channel. So either the show or channel has to go.

The Bellas are already on another show. Do they need another show? They even have a YouTube channel. And they aren’t even in WWE anymore. They both don’t really wrestle anymore.
