Top 10 Reasons Why Johnny Test Sucks


The Top Ten

1 It took Ed Edd n Eddy's place

This show is as far away from Ed edd n eddy as possible Ed Edd n eddy was the last of Cartoon Networks original shows

Ed Edd n Eddy was my childhood. I love it when I green up. I remembered watching the finale movie in 2009, and it was a great end to a great show. But Johnny Test ruined what it had. Unoriginal story, unfunny jokes, disgusting humour and it shouldn't be considered as a cartoon.

This is why the great show titled Ed, Edd n Eddy got cancelled. I wish they could make a reboot of Ed, Edd n Eddy to replace Johnny Test for getting them cancelled!

Same here but not Ed Edd n eddy, it's lazytown and I liked that show lazytown you should watch that instead.

2 Terrible episodes

I used to like this show, but then I realized it's just a crappy ripoff of Dexter's Laboratory combined with a ripoff of Jimmy Neutron, which were both funny, and overall, awesome shows. I would rather listen to 8 bit Rick Astley than ever watch another episode of Johnny Test. KoolGuy, no, that's an opinion, far from being a fact. Watch Dexter's Lab and Jimmy Neutron, then you'll know what I'm talking about.

I especially hate how all the episodes have "Johnny" somewhere in the title. Almost every single episode is a rip off of something that is appealing to us. The plot is always the same.
1. Johnny doesn't want to do something on his own
2. Stupid sisters have a convenient invention bland tell him all about it, but tell Johnny not to touch it
3. Johnny steals invention.
4. Pointless ending

Number one is that it is a rip off of dexter's lab

Dexter's Lab was AWESOME, and actually funny. Nobody wants to see a kid with a stupid dog rip off ideas from The Fairly OddParents. - Discord

I watched two episodes of Johnny Test and predicted the ending, turns out I was right. Everything was super rushed and too fast for me to understand. - Popsicles

3 Idiot characters

I hate each and every character in this show.

#1. Johnny Test - Has an annoying voice that drives everyone crazy. He is a terrible role model for kids. Children will think they can do whatever Johnny does and get away with it. He is rude to everyone and he thinks he's so cool. He's the exact opposite of cool.

#2 The Dog - A talking dog!?!? I am so tired of talking dogs. Dogs don't talk for a reason! I hate every single character's voice in the show, especially this Dog's. His voice is an offense to dogs everywhere. Plus, he walks around on his hind legs and tries to be a human. He is an offense to humans everywhere.

#3 Eugene - I HATE HIS GUTS. He thinks he's all cool and just because he's rich Susan will like him? Money isn't everything. But "Bling bling boy" is teaching kids the exact opposite. His voice SUCKS and he's so ugly. I wouldn't date him if he gave me every penny he owned.

#4 Susan & Mary - They think they're oh so smart twins. They're ...more

I agree with whoever posted the reasons for why each and every character sucks. Johnny Test is such a toolbox. Day after day he causes more trouble at his school, in his neighborhood, and at home, while pissing off every single person he sees the moment he sees them. The talking dog is such an overused cartoon cliche, plus he tries to be a human when he obviously can not be one. Dogs only bark for a reason, everyone. Eugene is also a massive tool, 'enough said. I'm pretty sure that Susan & Mary are actually "special", if you get what I'm saying. And lastly, the dad seems to only know how to make seemingly rotting meatloaves for dinner. Gosh this show sucks so ' much.

Johnny Test, the show's titular character, is the worst character ever! He is selfish, disrespectful, whiny, annoying, spoiled and stupid. He doesn't care for anyone but himself and always blame on the other characters they didn't commit (because he's the one commited). He's also a horrible role model to kids these days as of ditching school, not paying attention, and disrespecting your parents. Who's idea for making this unlikeable character and what kind of protagonist Johnny is?!

I love all of the characters lets go through them ok here we go

Johnny test: he is an awesome and crafty kid he makes everything happen and since he is popular he never gets arrested

Dukey a talking dog of Johnny test that joins him in every episode

Eugene I LOVE him a lot he is the bling bling boy that has a lot of money

Susan and Mary sister that like Johnny test they never let him in the lab until they do tests so they can solve the problem

Bumper in the spider episode at The part where Johnny has three arms and he grabs the bumper and fix his face and then give Him a wedge reminds me of super Mario 64 but with bumper's face instead of Mario and that he is the main school bully in every episode that features the hallway

Hugh Johnnys dad that says no to everything and he gives meatloaf every dinner

Hans teacherman in the video game episode when he gave a PopQuiz Johnny pulled out his controller in control and teacher in in in this car ...more

4 It Rips Off Dexter's Laboratory

The whole concept of Johnny Test is a giant ripoff of several things. First thing, if you listen to Green Day (or have heard one of their most popular songs on the radio), you'll notice that the theme song is actually a cover of American Idiot. Okay, no big deal. Songs get covered all the time. Second, especially if you've seen even just a single episode of Dexter's Lab, you'll notice that the whole (very major) plot element of some of the family's children having a secret lab where they conduct all kinds of questionable experiments is an obvious ripoff of Dexter's Lab. If that ripoff isn't bad enough, it's also a ripoff of Jimmy Neutron in many ways, such as a large part of these experiments being prototypical machines.

It also rips off Jimmy Neutron too! Sorry for the low quality here - bugger

Dexter's laboratory looks much more brilliant than this
I've only seen one episode of it and it looks so much better
And, I watched cartoons after dexter's lab ended - Harri666

Dexter's laboratory isn't bad nor it is the best, but compared to Johnny test it wins an Oscar. - Ohno

5 Lame "Villains"

Darth vegan is just a ripoff of darth vader (I love toast though)


Bumper, really Cartoon Network? A kid named bumper? Really you need to try harder

Brain freezer is just some human who had some moan and became a bad guy, not scary at all

They are all the villains I can think of in the show because I stopped watching thanks for reading. bye people

All of the villains in this show are either ripoffs of characters from shows or movies that are actually good, generic, bland, stereotypical villains, or just boring old cartoon tropes, like talking cats. This just further supports the reason this show was cancelled.

Hey should we make a cool villain with a creative design but still is funny and a very enjoyable character or a small fat rich kid with mom issues I like the kid idea

I don't know why villains are always break-in through hero's lair.
I mean most heroes are always break-in in villain's lair.Not villains.

6 It's not funny

It is literally impossible to laugh at this show. There are no Johnny Test fans whereas there were millions of fans of the old Cartoon Network shows. Nobody likes Johnny Test for crying out loud, that's why this list was invented. Also, please CANCEL IT CN! I hate the characters so much it's just TERRIBLE. EVERYTHING! It's not funny AT ALL.

I watched Johnny Test with my family. Nobody laughed. THIS SHOW IS ONE OF THE WORST Cartoon Network SHOWS BESIDES UNCLE GRANDPA AND THE ANNOYING ORANGE! This show has awful voice acting, no humor, who likes this Dexter's Laboratory ripoff?

I watched this show a lot when I was younger and kinda dumb. Wanna know how many times I laughed while watching it? I can't remember a single time that I laughed at anything in this show. This show is the exact opposite of funny.

The jokes are funnier like most modern cartoons. - DynastiSugarPop

7 It gets worse every season

It seemed cool at first, but then it got stupider and more repetitive as it went on.

The very first episodes seemed cool, of course this is because of the whole "oh cool, it's new" way of thinking that our minds default to when we see something we haven't seen before. However, this way of thinking fueled by hype wears off pretty quickly. Soon you'll realize how much it sucks, and it just gets suckier as the series drags on.

I was enjoying it at first than I quit watching it as the show got more lamer now I hate johnny test

Move over, haters! The seasons are neutral and pointless at the same time! - DynastiSugarPop

8 Gil

As another person said before me, he's a ripoff of Jeremy from Phineas and Ferb. He also has many weird habits, including smelling cow crap, and is an awful, irresponsible babysitter. Why do some people like this show?

Screw him, he's just one of those cliche characters, where he just irresistible, God! I can't stand people like that! - Chaofreaks1

Johnny Test was created before Phineas and Ferb so they couldn't have ripped them off.

He's such an idiot

9 Cartoon Network keeps having marathons of Johnny Test

This Stupid Show Well Only Come Back In Christmas - CuteGirlJigglypuff

I demand more!

10 Too many sound effects

To who ever posted this. Your heart is in the right place but I have to disagree there isn't enough sound effects there's only one (that whipping noise)

Nah, there's not enough. It's just that dang whipping noise over and over and over again.

Please mickeys twice upon a chrismas need whipcrack sounds whenever a characters arm or leg moves

The Contenders

11 He has destroyed the city multiple times... and has never been arrested

Hell, Blossom (Powerpuff Girls) got arrested for stealing and Nicole (Gumball) has been arrested for robbing a store with a sausage (which she didn't even do) so how did this smug mug douche not get in jail. - KingFab

He needs to die a slow painful death

A person who destroys massive property multiple times don't go to prison, they get sentenced to death. Wish this happened - Ohno

Where's the chainsaw because I wanna kill Johnny Test! - Carsrule300

12 Tinymon is a ripoff of Pokemon

How can you consider this a legitimate reason? It's not like any other shows have never "ripped-off" other liked series. I prefer to use the term inspiration.

They ran out of ideas at this point, and the episodes that they are featured in are pretty racist in my opinion.

It is but it's still awesome

13 Johnny is a terrible role model

All he cares about his himself, money and getting whatever he wants! He is also spoiled and very bratty. His only friend is a talking dog. He constantly gets bullied by the same person and his sisters use him as a lab rat. - AliCatz615

He cheats at school by using his sister's machines to do everything for him, he only cares about himself, is a spoiled brat, constantly whines to his parents and sisters to get what he wants, and exchanges being a lab rat for getting whatever it is he happens to be wanting at a particular time. Does that sound like something you want your kids to be like?

Does Johnny study for a test like a regular kid? No! Instead, he uses his sisters' inventions. In an episode, he went back in time to look at history instead of reading from a long history book which is way easier.

I hate Johnny! He's almost like Timmy Turner from "The Fairly Oddparents" (at least Timmy isn't spoiled as Johnny), he is selfish, stupid, impatient, annoying, whiny, and a terrible role model to kids these days.

14 Johnny is a ripoff of a boy version of Dee Dee

Shut up I hate Johnny Test You do Not Love Johnny Test

I hate Johnny test

It's all a ripoff of good cartoon. and that is making the good cartoon look stupid.


15 Every Character is terrible

Not people are just afraid that they show more emotion then others Dexters lab mostly confution and anger edd ed and eddy luck
Mixed with anger you wont to talk about bad influence edd Ed and eddy
They took all of those into 1

16 Constantly rips off entertainment gems

It rips off cartoon classics like Dexter's Lab, rips off movies such as Star Wars, and even rips off popular music.

This has got to be Number 1 on the list because it's like that stupid Robot Chicken, which is far worse than Johnny Test.

This is true to try to get some older

17 The theme song is a rip-off of American Idiot by Green Day

It's likely that the theme song was based off of it because Johnny Test is an idiot.

The show Johnny test needs a new theme song

Well, Johnny Test is a CANADIAN idiot. - KingFab

18 Bad main character


19 Annoying "Whip" Noise

You know, ed edd n eddy has a wide variety of sound effects but this show just uses the same sound effect over and over and it gets really annoying, really fast.

Can you believe james arnold taylor is actually proud of the whipping noise?

This one YouTube video said that there is 190 whip sounds in an episode. Why do they think that the noise is something people enjoy!?

Every time someone lifts and arm or something you can hear that stupid whip noise.

20 Blast Ketchup is a rip off of Ash Ketchum

Dude, the episodes were parodies.

They both suck, however. Cilan and Clemont are much better. - RiverClanRocks

Who's that anoying kid who's with him

-Stupid Marcio
-Super the HairyHog
- Tale of Zekea
- Mister Sheep
- SpudBoy Squidpeas
