Michael John Kricfalusi (born September 9, 1955), better known as John K., is a Canadian former animator and voice actor best known as the creator of the Nickelodeon animated television series The Ren & Stimpy Show.

After he was exposed to sexual harassment in 2018, revelations of his behavior soon followed and now he no longer works for the animation industry.

Why He Sucks Now

  1. Just to get the cat out of the bag, he impenitently sexually harassed and groomed girls!
  2. He's difficult to work with, as 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.
  3. In the 1990s, he (under the pseudonym of Tom Paine, animator, and historian) wrote a hate review of Steven Spielberg's creation Animaniacs 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 long outdated bits from vaudeville --- this is the absolute worst of animation.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, if not more, than Animaniacs.
    • Ironically, Katie Rice, one of the women that he had abused, would go on to direct episodes of the 2020 reboot of Animaniacs.
  4. He purposefully and wrongfully insulted/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 father get beaten up by a neighbor. So far, he never apologized to her for that either, indicating that he takes violence and abuse on other innocent people as a joke.
  5. He coined the "CalArts art style" meme, which refers to character designs that have what viewers call the "bean face" or the "inflated cheeks", whereas he refers to characters that look the same. It's a terrible and nonsensical 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 Giant, which has been regarded as to be one of the most unique art-styles in animation.
  6. He had a dispute with South Park 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 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. What a trainwreck!
  11. On his "apology" for the sexual harassment allegations on Facebook in May 2018, he hypocritically blamed his bipolar disorder and "poor impulse control" for the damage done, though it shows that he never takes criticism or responsibility. LESSON EVERYONE: Whenever you're thinking of an apology to everyone whom you've messed with very badly, apologize by admitting the mistakes you've made were all wrong to do, NOT by blaming a disability of your own as an excuse to escape trouble.
  12. He has a very unhealthy obsession with cartoons from the 1960s and earlier.
  13. His hatred of Disney is so high that he's willing to make corporate propaganda out of pure spite, but yet he even hasn't realized that his favorite film series, the Toy Story series, is made in the hands of Pixar with Disney, showing another case of hypocrisy.
  14. He also says stuff that is absolute nonsense, too. For example, he once compared Star Wars to Happy Days, which has absolutely nothing in common with Star Wars.
  15. 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.
  16. After getting fired from Nickelodeon, he basically kept making repetitive adult content that eventually became extremely old.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He did make The Ren & Stimpy Show, 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 that he's ever felt remorseful and has said he was sorry for something he was responsible for, 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 Simpsons 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 Tunes short, 1946's The Great Piggy Bank Robbery, which was one of the couple times he was polite.
  5. He used to be an actual nice person who cared about others during the early days of his career, at least until showrunning The Ren & Stimpy Show gotten all up in his head.
  6. He does respect and enjoy good modern stuff such as Calvin and Hobbes, Beavis and Butthead, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Simpsons, The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, Fritz the Cat, King of the Hill, Cats Don't Dance, the Toy Story films (as previously mentioned), and the list goes on.
  7. He did stop bashing modern-day films and series made by modern creators and stopped bullying them on his blog, to which he 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. He even promoted Bakshi's Last days on Coney Island Kickstarter campaign on his blog site.
  9. He did send respect to Chris Reccardi, when he sadly passed away on May 2, 2019, and also send condolences to Chris' widow, Lynne Naylor, and their family, as well making a tribute post about Chris Reccardi on his blog, implying that even though he was a complete jerk to his colleagues and co-workers and treat them poorly, he still cares about them or at the very least, gives some amount of respect for them.
  10. Last, but not least, during his interview in the Ren & Stimpy documentary Happy Happy Joy Joy!, he finally admitted remorse for his actions, wished that he was a better person, and accepted the blame. However, he downplayed this by also said that he is not always perfect, but then proceeded to sketch the infamous scene from Ren Seeks Help where Stimpy says to Ren, "You monster!", implying that he will never change.

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?

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

Knowing that this "THING" created my childhood, sometimes I would like to see what the alternate reality would be like if John K. only directed/produced this show, and that it was created by an entirely different person like that pseudonym "brought to life", Raymond Spüm. It really hurts to see how this sociopath went to the wrong path by mistreating co-workers and grooming minors. And no, I'm not gonna defend Robyn Byrd either since she tried to cancel "you know what", but it's still wrong in many levels. I just hate him, okay. Even Butch Hartman knows better than this.
