The title is accurate, so i think that this show is like the cartoon equivalent to Hong Kong 97 (An (in)famous and intentionally bad video game).

Was this show made to be bad?
I don't know, but to be ironic is by Mike Young Productions nowadays they're called Splash Entertainment, who also made Norm of The North and who cares what else they made but still!
If you don't know, Hong Kong 97 is a 1995 homebrew/Bootleg videogame for SNES/Super Famicom which was made as a "middle finger" to Nintendo, as I mentioned above, it was made to be a bad videogame, but in my opinion is so stupid that makes me laugh.
