Supernoobs is an American-Canadian animated TV series created by Scott Fellows (who also created Johnny Test). for Cartoon Network and Teletoon, it later moved to Family Channel in Canada. It ran from November 2, 2015 until February 7, 2019.

Plot

Four middle schoolers are given superpowers by accident and are expected to save the world from an alien virus.

Bad Qualities

  1. It's too clichéd and it's just disappointing.
    • It doesn't even have the same charm as Scott's last show, Johnny Test.
  2. The characters are just built upon stereotypes, like the Normal Kid/the Boy (Tyler), the Cool Kid/the Greaser (Kevin), the Nerd/the Girl (Jennifer), and the Weird Kid Who's Only There For Filler/a Fat Kid who also acts as the comic relief (Roach).
  3. Barely threatening villains/antagonists on Earth.
  4. The powers of the protagonists are inconsistent.
  5. Roach and Kevin's voices are really raspy and it sounds like they're going through reversed puberty. They are so raspy they make listening to the voices in The Christmas Tree or My Life Me sound like a thrilling and euphoric experience.
  6. It teaches poor life lessons in a couple of episodes.
    • In one episode (Noob Kids On The Block), Kevin promotes cutting classes and there's no explanation to it at all.
    • Towards the end of the first season, Kevin is continuously bullying and teasing Jennifer, because she is a girl. Now isn't that the stupidest reason for teasing somebody you've ever seen? The worst part? Kevin never learns from his mistakes, and it's almost like the show is encouraging its audience to harass and tease their female friends, simply because they are not your gender and it was sexist.
    • The show encourages rude things like ruining dates or messing with stuff that doesn't belong to you.
    • In "Noob Day Out", there was a moral where it teaches kids that skipping school is okay.
  7. The plots may be good but they are simultaneously nonsensical in certain episodes, a la Atomic Puppet.
  8. This show can be a bit mean-spirited at times.
  9. The writers treat Jennifer like a Butt-Monkey. There are two episodes where she is bullied by the writers, Who, What, Where, Noob (she almost gets sent to another school against her will), and Noobs VS. Sour Persimmons (a picnic she made is continuously getting ruined).
  10. In Season 2, Memnock and Zenblock became even more dumber in Season 1!
  11. The writers wanted the superhero characters to become weaker and more useless than we thought!
  12. Several of the episode plots are boring, do not really go anywhere, and Memnock and Zenblock are shoehorned into them often.
  13. It focuses way too much on Earth and the human characters, despite the fact that the show is animated. Because of this it wastes a lot of opportunities to show off potential sci fi settings like the home planet of Memnock and Zenblock.

Good Qualities

  1. Decent animation, some scenes even use CGI.
  2. Some likable characters, e.g. Shope, Tyler (at the times of the episode), and the alien characters Memnock and Zenblock.
  3. Tyler is the only one who is not the worst of Supernoobs and he is not selfish as others.
  4. There are some passable or surprisingly good episodes.
  5. The character designs are decent.
  6. There are some good moments too which could be the reason why someone like the show.
  7. Sometimes, it has hidden morals which may be helpful.
  8. The theme song is pretty catchy.

Trivia
