Bad Qualities

Warning: Please do not put anything about it being a rip-off of shows like Invader Zim, The Cramp Twins, Johnny Test, George of The Jungle and The Fairly OddParents as these shows have things that are common in most cartoons.

  1. One of the main problem with this show is that most of the characters are mostly either bland and/or unlikable (with the exception of Coop).
    • Burt, Coop's father, has almost no personality and most of the time, scolds Coop for things he did not do.
    • Mr. Kat is an extremely unlikable character, as he blames Coop for his terrible things, and always gets away scot-free.
      • Some episodes also tries to make us sympathize with him since Coop often thinks he's trying to take over the world, but due to all the bad things he does, it's actually understandable.
    • Millie, Coop’s sister, is an incredibly annoying Mary-Sue, and her screaming is very ear-piercing.
    • Old Lady Munson is a very mean neighbor to the Burtonburgers all just because Coop's grandfather fell in love with another girl, she's also very mean to all the other kids in town, except for Millie.
    • Phobe is a huge creepy stalker towards Coop and she is also a jerk to anyone who gets in her way.
  2. Voice acting that ranges from bland to just plain annoying.
  3. There's a ton of torture scenarios and it's incredibly mean-spirited (thankfully these were toned down in season 2).
  4. Unsatisfying Ending: In the finale episode, "The Kat Went Back", when things start to go right, Mr. Kat erases all the kids memories about how shady Mr. Kat truly is (except for Coop and Dennis), causing Coop to fight with him again. So basically, this means that the entire show retconned itself in end. Meaning the entire show was all told for NOTHING and Mr. Kat (the antagonist by the way) wins in the end.
  5. Laughable names, such as "Burtonburger".
  6. Generic and clichéd writing, even though it improved in the second season.
  7. Bland and uninspiring character designs with Old Lady Munon's design being the biggest example.
  8. Poor pacing, as it can feel very slow at times.
  9. While the animation looks decent, there are a few times when it can look stiff and off-model. It even looks like 2D flash animation in a PS2, original Xbox, and GameCube game.

Good Qualities

  1. Mr. Kat's design is cool.
  2. Coop, Fiona and Dennis are likable characters.
  3. The show later improved in season 2.
  4. Mr. Kat also gets his comeuppance sometimes.
  5. The theme song is okay to listen to.

Trivia

  • This is one of the few crowdfunding shows on Disney XD along with Phineas and Ferb, Aaron Stone, and Jimmy Two Shoes.
  • As of 2020, the series is now available to stream on Pluto TV.
    • The series is also available on Tubi TV, but only the second season.

This was from Best TV Shows Wiki. Is this going to be a Ricky Sprocket case where the show is on this wiki AND BTVS?

Coop and Millie's mom died before the show premiered- Jego, this has nothing to do with the show. It also feels biased, nitpicking and feels generic.

Snesboy12 Yes! That’s me! And I am really sorry for avoiding criticism, giving you a terrible hatedom, claiming that Nickelodeon doesn’t care about RBUK when they actually do after it went off the air, even though I now like RBUK nowadays, swearing over you making the Alejandro The Super Mario & We Bare Bears Guy page in the Horrible Vyonders Wiki & bashing your opinion on him, making you mad & getting you banned from Best TV Shows Miraheze Wiki for a month, calling you a Chae Cook wannabe, overpraising Mao Mao, Regular Show, & Unikitty like they’re religions if I were overprotective to them. It’s only because they’re my favorite shows and I hate their fandoms. And also for demonizing TTG by treating it like it’s worse than COVID-19. I wasn’t taking it too seriously. I’m not being mean to you. Can you please forgive me?

NOTE: I Still Like RBUK & Hate 44 Cats

I actually remember watching an episode of this from when I was younger, but (strangely) not on Disney XD, but rather Discovery Kids. But I can't find anything about this airing on Discovery Kids.

I'm from the US, and it might've been a false memory, or it actually did happen but nobody documented it.

Also, Pumpkin Reports, a cartoon from Spain, rips off both Invader Zim and Kid vs. Kat. Please make a page from this show.

I guess it's because they grew up watching it, but if it wasn't one of those Disney XD legacy shows I can confirm that practically everyone would notice how terrible it is, and the same goes to Scaredy Squirrel (even though I don't remember if it was a Nicktoon or a Disney show).
