Michael John Kricfalusi (born September 9, 1955), better known as John K., is a Canadian animator and voice actor. He is best known as the creator of the Nickelodeon animated television series The Ren & Stimpy ShowBTSW. After he was exposed to sexual harassment in 2018, revelations of his behavior soon followed.

Why He Sucks Now

  1. He impenitently sexually harassed and groomed little girls.
  2. He treated his co-workers and colleagues very badly, including famous voice actor Billy West, writer, director, and co-creator of Ren & Stimpy Bob Camp, and background artist, William Wray. Imagine how he would treat his own fans like this. Plus, his behavior towards the three of them is why he's difficult to work with.
  3. He wrote a hate review because back in the 1990s, he (under the pseudonym of Tom Paine, animator and historian) made fun of Steven Spielberg by ripping on and slandering Spielberg's creation called AnimaniacsBTSW on the Wild Cartoon Kingdom magazine by calling it "a godawful piece of trash" and goes on to say "a true moron fashion, this cartoon is obviously written by scriptwriters who can't draw. More old jokes have done badly... pies in the face... seltzer bottles... long outdated bits from vaudeville --- this is the absolute worst of animation. It just makes you sick". It should be noted that he "reviewed" Animaniacs without even watching it first and that his creation Ren and Stimpy actually used just as much crude humor as Animaniacs, if not more than Animaniacs.
  4. He purposefully insulted and wrongfully criticized Tress MacNeille by saying that her voices are embarrassing to hear and that he likes to see the experience to the point of wanting to watch her own dad get beaten up by a neighbor. He never apologized for that either, showing that he seemingly takes violence and abuse on other people as a joke.
  5. He coined the "CalArts art style" meme, where every type of cartoon looks the same. It's a terrible meme, to begin with (since a lot of cartoon creators of shows with the supposed style didn't even go to CalArts), but John used it to diss The Iron GiantGMW, which has been regarded as to be one of the most unique art-styles in animation.
  6. He had a dispute with South ParkBTSW creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker over Mr. Hankey, a living turd who John claimed was a rip-off of his character Nutty, which was obviously a pointless and nonsensical dispute due to the nature of Stone and Parker's character.
  7. He overuses way too much shock humor in all of his shows, going as far as making an adult revival of Ren and Stimpy which received universal disdain and backlash from fans and critics and is known to be one of the worst cartoons ever made, not just the worst cartoon revivals ever made, though to be fair, it was mainly Spike’s idea, not his. This actually killed any chance of Ren and Stimpy ever getting another revival until 2020.
  8. His art style for all of his characters (save for Ren and Stimpy), in the 21st century, is often ugly and disturbing at times.
  9. The female characters that he drew in skimpy clothing were underage.
  10. The infamous Cans Without Labels Kickstarter campaign that was a complete mess, and its production took way too long being left in the works for 7 whole years from 2012-2019 in the 2010s. The short itself wound up being a complete trainwreck.
  11. On his so-called apology for the allegations on Facebook in May 2018, he hypocritically blamed his bipolar disorder for the damage done, but it shows he never takes criticism or responsibility.
  12. He has a very unhealthy obsession with cartoons from the 1960s and earlier.
  13. His hatred of Disney is so high, he's willing to make propaganda out of pure spite, but yet he even hasn't realized that Toy Story as an example is made in the hands of PixarGMW with Disney, showing another case of hypocrisy.
  14. He acts like a nostalgia-tard by thinking that all modern-day corporations are "evil" and only care about money rather than children, which isn’t true. They are not all evil, greedy or selfish, and they sure as hell are not corrupted about money either.
  15. He says things that make no sense, too. One time, he compared Star WarsGMW to Happy DaysBTSW, which both of these have absolutely nothing in common.
  16. He also made The New Adventures of Beany and Cecil with weird, disturbing, gross-out humor that ruined the show back in the late 1980s.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He did make The Ren & Stimpy ShowBTSW, which is a great show and was also one of the very first Nicktoons on Nickelodeon. Without it, nothing would be the same.
  2. He did apologize for making the adult revival of The Ren and Stimpy Show, Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon", which is one of the only rare times he's ever felt remorseful and has said he was sorry for something he was responsible of, even if that was Spike’s idea.
  3. He's still a good voice actor, especially when he voices Ren.
  4. He still did good work from time to time:
    • Helped do the animation work for the 2006 music video for “Weird Al” Yankovic's "Close, But No Cigar".
    • He worked on The SimpsonsBTSW for two couch gags as a guest animator in 2011 and 2015.
    • He also did the first web series, The Goddamn George Liquor Program, in 1997.
    • He did a commentary on his favorite Looney TunesBTSW short, 1946's "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery", which was one of the couple times he was polite.
  5. He used to be an actually nice person who actually cared about others during the early days of his career.
  6. He does respect and enjoy good modern stuff such as Calvin and Hobbes, Beavis and ButtheadBTSW, SpongeBob SquarePantsBTSW, The Simpsons, The Powerpuff GirlsBTSW, Dexter's LaboratoryBTSW, Cow and ChickenBTSW, Fritz the Cat, King of the HillBTSW, Cats Don’t DanceGMW, the Toy StoryGMW films, as well as a few other stuff.
  7. He did stop bashing modern-day films and animation made by current-day creators and stopped bullying them on his blog and now John K only talks about his work as well as stuff he likes and grew up with later on John K. Stuff.
  8. He still shows respect to his mentor Ralph Bakshi, though Bakshi himself wasn't happy with his behavior. Even promoting Bakshi's "Last days on Coney Island" kickstarter campaign on his blog site.
  9. He did send respect to Chris Reccardi, when he sadly died on May 2, 2019 and also send condolences to Chris Reccardi's widow, Lynne Naylor and their family, as well making a tribute post about Chris Reccardi on his blog.

Trivia

  • His father is Ukrainian, while his mother is Scottish.
  • He considered Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" his best work when it came to animating. However, even he wasn't happy by how it turned out, and he later regretted it.
  • He was very good friends with Danny Antonucci (the creator of behind Cartoon Network series Ed, Edd n EddyBTSW).

I don't want to be like John K. Well, okay. I love Ren and Stimpy, but I hate the man (we all do). He is an egotistical, women raping, child porn addictive, hypocritical, and a nasty spirited FUCKTARD!

I don't want to be like that asshole. I just don't. Not for all the worst things he's ever done.

I don't know if this is a good saying, but in the alternate timeline, what if John Kricfalusi was actually a calm and nice person who cares about other people and was known as Raymond Spüm. He was born in 1935, came from Denmark and studies in Canada. He doesn't put as much sex jokes in his shows. The adult party cartoon is wiped from existence. The Ren and Stimpy Show is actually based on an MGM animated short, Ren Hoek and Stimpy Presents: Big House Blues from 1962. The Nickelodeon show still stays the same exactly like the show we have in real life, though. He is also not a pedophile. He would've probably been better in the alternate timeline, but I dunno... What do you guys think of that?

Despite being different types of people, is it bad analogy I can compare YandereDev to him? Because both have something in common if I were any of you.

  • Both are lazy with their work at times.
  • Both are arrogant, defiant, ignorant, and stubborn.
  • Both hardly even bothered to learn from their mistakes.
  • Both can take anyone's YouTube videos down if they use their work for either memes or YouTube Poops ("Cans Without Labels" is the only case from John K, whilst YandereDev's pictures are the more common issue).
  • Both are pedophiles (because YandereDev thinks pedophilia is a sexual orientation when it is not even true).
  • Both showed their true colors despite their differences on how they showed their colors.
  • Both can come off as people that are too unapologetic for their actions they have committed.

Exceptions:

  • John K. has apologized for the APC reboot, whilst YandereDev never bothered to apologize for any of some of the worst things he has ever done.
  • John K. used to be a kind person before his ego rose in the '90s, whilst YandereDev was possibly bad in all of his life.
  • John K. had some talent in his work (despite losing his mojo in later years), whilst YandereDev has no mojo, and proves he is not talented either.
  • John K. has never harassed his fans or treated them like garbage in person, whilst YandereDev hates his fans for no reason. If your a fan of someone who openly insults you or other fans for no reason, would you still be a fan of them and not realize their not the person who you think they are, or would you never be a fan of them ever again?

The same i can compare a DaddyOFive to Chris-Chan (Despite who both are different) Similarities: •Both are born in 1982 •Both can't handle a criticism •Both make a disguting things •Both hate a good guys (Cody and Mary Lee Walsh •Both are a YouTubers •Both are immature •Both are a SJW •Both have a carbon copies: Jake and Sonichu (except he is a fanmade character, but i put because, Sonichu is more about the CWC himself). Differences: •DaddyOFive has a family unlike Chris-Chan •Christine created a OC (a.k.a Sonichu) •Chris-Chan have a dark backstory, whilst DaddyOFive has possibly a good backstory •DaddyOFive isn't a homophobic (possibly)

•Christine supports Vic Mignogna
