The Mighty B! is an American animated television series co-created by Amy Poehler, Cynthia True, and Erik Wiese for Nickelodeon. This creator-driven series centers on Bessie Higgenbottom, an ambitious Honeybee girl scout who lives in San Francisco with her dog Happy, her 6-year-old brother, Ben, and her mom, Hilary.


The series centers on Bessie Higgenbottom, an ambitious Honeybee girl scout who believes she will become The Mighty B (a superhero) if she collects every Honeybee badge. Bessie lives in San Francisco with her single mother Hilary, brother Ben and her best friend of a dog, Happy. Bessie believes anything can be done with the right attitude and a little hard work.

The Mighty B(ad) Qualities

  1. The intro, while pretty catchy, is kinda annoying. It's just the word "bee" being repeated too many times. Even when the show itself is all about bees.
  2. The show has a handful of clichés.
  3. A handful of unlikeable characters who are all stereotypes such as Portia, who is the generic Queen Bee-esque character (no pun intended as the main show is bee related).
  4. Mediocre character designs in 2000's standards, particularly with Bessie.
  5. While the animation is decent, there are some times when it looks slow.
  6. Some disturbing and scary scenes.
  7. The humor in the show is just plain unfunny, cheesy, and generic at the same time since a lot of them are quite predictable, despite Amy Poehler being the driving force of this show.
  8. There are many gross jokes and scenes, like Bessie trying to jump into Portia's mouth in "Body Rockers", Bessie farting and being banned from the community center for it in "Toot Toot", and Bessie pouring phlegm out of the thermometer in "Apoxcalypse Now".
  9. There are a handful of bad episodes, “Public Enembee” being one prime example.
  10. Bessie's scout troop, The Honeybees, are unlikable since they are stereotypical girly girls and the leader, Mary Frances Gibbons, like her daughter, treats Bessie like an idiot for no reason. Also, why do Portia and Gwen have unique uniforms while the other girls don't?

Mighty Qualities

  1. Pretty decent animation, considering that it is done by Rough Draft Studios.
  2. Though annoying, the theme song is quite catchy.
  3. There are some fairly funny jokes throughout the show.
  4. The premise is interesting, despite being poorly executed.
  5. Some good morals are in the show.
  6. The show does have a share fair of good episodes, like "We Got the Bee" (which Has a catchy song at the end), "Little Orphan Happy", "Bat Mitzvah Crashers", "An I See Bee", "Something's Wrong With This Taffy", "Thanksgiving Beenactment", “Dragonflies” (which also had a catchy song and was also the season 1 finale), and more. The final episode, "C'mon Get Happy", was intended to be a good way ending the show, but it leaves off on a cliffhanger.
  7. The show did improve a bit by its second season. Sadly (and unfortunately), most people never saw this season because Nickelodeon dumped these episodes onto Nicktoons like most of their failed series.
  8. There are some likable characters as Happy, Ben, Penny, and Bessie depending on your view.


Despite positive reviews from critics and high ratings from the first season and the first 13 episodes of Season 2, the series received mixed-to-negative reviews from audiences and currently holds a 5.4/10 on IMDb. The Mighty B! also got mixed reviews from Google users meeting an 83%.

The show was nominated for six Annie Awards. The show has also been nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards, winning one. It has also been nominated for one Artios Award and one Golden Reel Award.
