The Nutshack is a 2007 Filipino-American adult animated sitcom created and produced by Ramon Lopez and co-created by Jesse Hernandez. It was the first Filipino-American television series to be animated. It aired on Myx TV in the United States and Myx in the Philippines.


Two cousins, Phil and Jack, from completely different areas (the Philippines and the San Francisco Bay Area, respectively) are forced to live together by their overly controlling uncle, Richard "Tito Dick" Cabeza.

Why It Sucks

  1. The title has absolutely nothing to do with the show's premise at all.
  2. Bad voice acting and character designs.
  3. The background music drowns out the dialogue.
  4. The show has loads of unfortunate implications and aesops; for instance, the episode named "Got Surgery?" encourages female viewers to get breast enlargements in order to feel accepted.
  5. The characters (excluding Chita) range from downright disgusting to utterly annoying.
    • The animal sidekick, Horat, has many failed attempts at humor.
      • His robotic voice is also terrible. It's also hard to make out what he's saying (which is why we have subtitles of what he’s saying), making it worse than that of Roba from The Problem Solverz.
  6. Awful writing. Some episodes don't even begin with a proper exposition, or end with a proper resolution.
  7. Unfunny jokes that includes immature humor, toilet humor, and disturbing content, as well as an overuse of drug and sex jokes.
  8. The animation is absolutely awful and poorly-done. It looks like low-quality internet flash animation at times, and the characters move very robotically most of the times.
  9. It's extremely racist, anti-semitic, and homophobic.
    • It is offensive to Filipinos despite (ironically) being a Filipino-American show and the creators being of Filipino descent themselves.
    • The transgender character, Cherry Pie, could be considered offensive to actual transgender people, as they are portrayed as nothing more than a stereotypical feminine lady-boy that makes everyone around her very uncomfortable.
  10. The theme song is basically just the words “It’s The Nutshack” over and over again.
  11. Like #2, the characters look like they have been steamrolled and puked on due to the art-style.
    1. Ironically, they ARE steamrolled in the show’s intro!
  12. Some scenes make no sense at all.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Chita is probably the only likable character on the show, and her voice is pleasant to listen to, compared to the other characters.
  2. The opening theme song, while awful, is somewhat catchy.
  3. Season 2, although still bad, was a major improvement over season 1.
  4. The storyboards for the show actually look pretty good before they were animated. They are detailed and are in an attractive looking art style slightly different from the show's.
  5. Horat sounds a bit better when his voice is in a normal pitch.
  6. The voice acting is so awful that you can laugh a lot.


The Nutshack was met with extremely negative reviews from critics and viewers alike and it's considered as the one of the worst animated shows ever. It currently holds on 1.7/10 on IMDB and a 2.5/10 on


  1. The show's theme song spawned a lot of memes.

I want ask something; this show is something that actually has sexist (as said in WIS#4 ),racist and homophobic morals and jokes yet those SJWs don't complain about it.

It's a pretty obscure show that started airing while the SJW movement was still in its infancy. Chances are not enough of them saw it to bother complaining about it.
