Pickle and Peanut
This buddy comedy, which features a mixture of animation and live-action, follows the offbeat adventures of small-town teenagers Pickle and Peanut. Entering their final year of high school, the friends are determined to have as much fun as possible before graduation and the resulting responsibilities of adulthood. Pickle and Peanut try to be anything but ordinary in their Nevada suburb. Peanut always stands up for what he thinks is right - even if it isn't always right - and will do anything for his best friend. Pickle, meanwhile, wears his heart on his sleeve and, when his buddy comes up with a crazy plan, he usually makes it worse.
Why It Intentionally Sucks
- The animation the show is very Mediocre.
- Overuse of stock images and footage, similar to Fish Hooks.
- Pickle and Peanut are literally the same characters but with different designs.
- This show feels like a poor man's version of Regular Show with a bit of Breadwinners thrown in.
- Most gross-out humor in the show look either watered-down or too clean, making the show too clean for those who like gross-out and too gross for those who don't like it.
- There is actually an episode about a zit on Pickle's buttocks. What makes this even worse is that this pimple on Pickle's butt cheek came from pimple removal cream (which doesn't make a lick of sense) and it makes him, as Peanut puts it, "a real lady magnet".
- The voice actor for Peanut, Johnny Pemberton, insulted critics who would possibly pan the show on his official Twitter account, saying that the comments are "from cum-guzzling trolls with negative follower/following ratios." We kid you not!
- This shows that Johnny Pemberton cannot handle even the slightest form of criticism.
- Very inappropriate for kids and Disney audiences, with extreme violence and constant swear references.
- For example, in the episode "The Goose's Juice," there are several on-screen deaths. There are also incredibly disturbing episodes, such as "Body Spray" as well.
- One of its CGI Christmas specials, "Yellow Snow", looks comparable to the works of Video Brinquendo, if not worse, it looks hilariously awful. Seriously, if you need any proof, then see for yourself.
- Below average soundtrack, mostly done in an "8-bit" retro style similar to Breadwinners.
- Despite being catchy, the theme song has no effort and sounds robotic (it sounds a lot like Robot Jones’ original text-to-speech voice). Even Mr. Enter and PhantomStrider described it as a four-year old's shopping list. The lyrics to the theme song also make no sense, as it literally just repeats the series' name over and over while listing random things.
- The last episode was a clip show.
- The voice acting is considered surprisingly good for some people and viewers.
- Some jokes aren't so bad according to your point of view.
- Also, there are some funny moments.
- While there are plenty of meaningless storylines, they can be really interesting and fun that they don't take seriously.
- Because of its quality, the show may be considered intentionally bad.
- The show is also considered to be so bad that it's good, similar to the movie The Room and it is possible that some people and viewers like this show.
- Although the animation is mediocre and has an excessive usage of images and footages, it is extremely funny and very unique, the color palette is oddly pleasant and passable to see too, since already remember to the memes or shitposts.
- As mentioned earlier in WIS #10, the outro theme and intro are catchy, to the point that they will make you want to dance or even listen to it on YouTube.
- The show did improve in Season 2.
- There's some likable characters here or there.
The show received extremely negative reviews from the public. The IMDb rating is a 4.1. On tv.com, it has a 2.3.
Fellow YouTuber, PhantomStrider, easily considers this the worst Disney cartoon ever produced because of its immensely lazy animation, teen pandering and gross-out humor. He is more than shocked to learn that Disney, of all companies, would produce something like this, especially since they were responsible for making such high quality shows such as Gravity Falls and extraordinary movie hits such as Zootopia.
