Here's a joke: How much bad could a woodchuck do if a woodchuck could kung fu?

Numb Chucks is a Canadian animated television series that was created by Phil LaFrance and Jamie LeClaire and premiered on YTV in Canada on January 7, 2014.
The series is produced by Jam Filled Entertainment and 9 Story Media Group, in association with YTV, and was produced with the participation of The Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, The Canada Media Fund, Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit, Ontario Computer Animation and Special Effects Tax Credit and with the financial participation of The Shaw Rocket Fund.
The series stars Dilweed and Fungus, two woodchucks with big hearts who are obsessed with using their bungling kung-fu skills to protect the lives of the citizens in their town of Ding-a-Ling Springs. The series was cancelled and aired its last episode on December 1, 2016.
Why It Sucks
Lazy and below-average voice acting that sound like they aren't trying, as they are either too quiet or scream too loudly.
Dilweed and Fungus hardly look like woodchucks and look more like beavers with no flat tails.
Very lazy and unoriginal names for two main characters: “Dilweed” and “Fungus”.
Much like Mega Babies, Dilweed and Fungus’s Kung fu skills are meant to rescue people. However, in some episodes, their Kung fu skills sometimes cause chaos.
Tons of gross-out and toilet humor.
On that topic, some episodes have Dilweed and Fungus TWERKING. We’re not kidding.
In the episode "Adventures In Bufordsitting", Buford, an adult, was wearing diapers. No joke.
Both Dilweed and Fungus are very annoying and unlikable characters.
There are many horrible episodes.
In the episode “Beaver Feaver”, The Townsfolk think that Fungus is a beaver after his tail got flattened.
In the episode “Spit-Uation Critical”, Dilweed and Fungus make Buford waste all his spit. Thankfully he got his spit back in the finale episode “Get Him To Ding-a-Ling Springs”.
In the episode “Artificial Dumbness”, Dilweed and Fungus don’t appear to care that Robo-Morris is torturing the townsfolk.
The episode “Orange Is The New Black Belt” is the biggest offender. Buford got tired of Dilweed and Fungus’s kung fu skills and banned kung fu from Ding-a-Ling Springs.
Cheap, mediocre and below 2014 looking standard animation that can give Rocket Monkeys’s animation a run for its money. Scaredy Squirrel has similar animation to this, but unlike Scaredy Squirrel's animation (which is decent, though cheap and mediocre in early episodes), Numb Chucks's animation is very mediocre throughout the entirety of the show.
Cheesy and below-average looking character designs that almost rip-off the designs in Almost Naked Animals (although that show looks a lot worse). Dilweed and Fungus's designs look awfully similar to Norbert and Daggett from The Angry Beavers.
Woodchuck Morris, especially, looks like a Rambo reject.
The second season had never even aired in the United States (Even though it is available to watch on Tubi TV and airs on YTV in Canada).
Grandma Butternut is a horrible parent, and abuses Buford, as well as never seeming bothered when the Chucks destroy the town.
Abysmal Episodes, such as "Who Put The Ding In Ding-A-Ling Springs".
Quills, Hooves, and Buford are the only decent characters in this show. Hooves and Buford, especially, because they get tortured in some episodes, however, Buford mostly deserved it.
Awesome music and soundtrack. Even in the theme song and end credits.
The finale episode “Get Him To Ding-a-Ling Springs” was decent, because Woodchuck Morris gave Buford back his spit.
There were 2 decent episodes, those being the Aforementioned Finale and "Evacuation Situation."
