Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil (or just Kick Buttowski) is an American animated series created by Sandro Corsano for Disney XD. It aired on Dinsey XD from 2010 to 2012 with a total of 52 episodes across two seasons.

The first season and the earlier part of the second season were well received for their adventure, action, and comedy as the concept shows it was made for and it was intentioned to. But starting from the latter half of the second season the show has become more out of its context and how the show was supposed to be made since it was more focused on slapstick and family relationship of The Buttowski.

Bad Qualities

  1. The quality of the show began to decline noticeably especially over the characters and plots, as the essence of the show, which was the stunts, extreme sports, and unquestionable adventures, was diminished to focus on the Buttowski Family, making the episodes of these tedious and unbearable seasons to watch.
  2. Some characters suffered flanderizations:
    • Kick and Gunther were the only characters in the series that didn't undergo major flanderings, however, they became complete punching bags for slapstick humor purposes.
    • Harold has gone from being a worried, goofy, overly caring and affectionate father to a cruel, petty, arrogant, despicable, idiot sociopath who only cares about his own self AND IS WILLING TO SACRIFICE HIS OWN FAMILY, ESPECIALLY HIS TWO CHILDREN TO CEACH YOUR GOALS.
    • Brianna went from being a spoiled girl who however cared about Kick, to a selfish, idiotic, and obsessive child.
    • Honey has gone from being a caring and protective former adventurer with her children to a petty and self-centered woman.
    • Brad went from being the mean, bully older brother in hygiene who is obsessed with finding a girlfriend and was a figure who could be seen as a rival to Kick, but who also cared about Kick and the Buttowski family and had ties and emotional moments with them, and became a coward who rarely acts his age and a traitor who manipulates others to make someone's life hell, although he's always been a middleweight jerk, he never got to that point in no moments from the previous season.
    • Kendall has gone from being a tough, smart, aggressive, and short-tempered classmate, more who cared about Kick and had her romantic moments, to a petty manipulator who uses Kick as a daredevil for her gain and splinters with your life.
    • Magnus has gone from being a brutal, overly dramatic man and a stranger who can be easily offended or irritated, more than caring about the Magnuson family, to a nutshell jerk who punishes his son for petty reasons.
  3. As mentioned in BQ#1, the stunts and extreme adventures have been scaled down to focus on the Buttowski family.
  4. The writing became listless, rushed, poorly written, and stuffed with boring slapstick jokes, resulting in many bad to average episodes.
  5. This season's episodes are sometimes cruel and sadistic, and at the same time grotesque, due to a large part focusing on Kick being tortured in cruel ways for stupid reasons, and featuring disgusting jokes, mainly involving Gunther's farts.
  6. Harold was the show's character who jumped the shark the most, especially on how he treats his wife and kids: He grounded Brad for thinking he broke the air conditioner, scared Brad and Kick with their cruel and sadistic horror stories, and even created one where his car and he murdered his entire family, hurt Brad with a ping pong ball and chased Kick over Honey's cookies, to the point where he dressed up as Gunther and destroyed it along with his wife, the properties of the neighborhood. And the icing on the cake: He officially murdered his son by a giant robot.
  7. The series came to rely heavily on clowning, meta-jokes, and fart jokes and began torturing certain characters for lazy comedy and slapstick.
  8. "Stay Cool" is considered by many to be the worst episode of the series:
    • Much of it (almost 11 MINUTES) involves Kick being tortured in cruel ways for a stupid reason: Harold punished Brad for thinking he broke the air conditioner.
    • Not to mention that the roles in this EP are useless, dull, and empty, making the episode weak and boring.
  9. Last Fan Standing was a weak and hasty way to end the series, due to the final episode being riddled with plot holes, having a bad ending, featuring two characters acting in annoying ways, as well as being yet another episode where Kick is cruelly tortured.

Good Qualities

  1. There are still funny moments here and there even if it's not much better than the earlier seasons.
  2. Mouth and Emo Kid are some of the characters that didn't get flanderized.
    • Kick and Gunther remained likable characters as well, despite their flanderization.
  3. Some new great and well-written characters introduced in this season like Javier who's a very competitive rival for Kick especially on spelling bees and Grandma Rosie who's a very funny prankster but a caring grandmother at the same time.
  4. Decent voice acting from the whole cast.
  5. There's still some good episodes such as "Attic-a", "Goodbye, Gully", "A Cousin Kyle Christmas", "Nerves of Steal", "Bwar and Peace", "Bad Table Manners", "Petrified!", "Crumbs!", "Trash Talk", "Kyle E. Coyote", and "Rocked".
  6. The flash animation is still decent that even blends with CG elements, which looks cool. Since this show was animated by Mercury Filmworks (who animated Hilda and Fish Hooks).

Trivia

  1. Originally, the entire series was on Best Shows & Episodes Wiki , but because the second half of the second season was bad, it was moved to this wiki in 2020.
