    As irritating as this show was, I have to admit: "My Gym Partner's a Monkey" has been one of the most underrated Cartoon Network shows ever made.

    That's all I can say.

    The animals are hilarious, I mean his group of friends, they're cool and they seem better than most today's characters. Those animals know more about humor than human characters like johnny test uncle grandpa etc

    An underrated classic, in my opinion.

    My Gym Partner's A Monkey is one of those shows that gets a ton of hate that I don't exactly understand. MGPAM is about a kid named Adam Lyon who is transfered from a human school to an animal school because they mistook him for an animal due to his last name. Along the way, he has to go to an animal school where his gym partner is a monkey. The premise may sound stupid, but it's executed nicely. This show does a great job at capturing the aspects of an everyday school life, such as the shark being a bully. The plots may be weird, but like the show itself, are nicely executed. The show does have a variety of interesting characters such as Adam Lyon, Jake Spidermonkey and the Gorilla. There is some good humor and plenty of funny moments to go around in each episode, but it can go a little too far with the butt stuff, but it's a kids show so what else can you expect? The animation is really good and flows smoothly in the show, and has a fair amount of effort put into it. The only problem I have with this show is the slightly poor voice acting, but it isn't God awful like Uncle Grandpa, but still could've done better. MGPAM is one of the most underrated shows ever and is worth giving a shot to see if you like it or not.moreless

    Not that good, but at least watchable, and darn you, nostalgia!!!

    I grew up with this show when I was still a small boy. I thought this show was okay. Now, looking back at it, it has toilet humor, except they don't go crazy with it like they did with Breadwinners. Nevertheless, I don't like toilet humor most of the time, unless if done right.

    About Average

    This was a pretty okay show for its time, but was no masterpiece. It had some interesting characters such as Adam Lyon and Jake Spidermonkey. But it was nothing all that special. In fact, when it got canceled, I didn't even notice and eventually forgot about it.

    The Definition of Mediocre

    This show was not bad, but nowhere near being decent. It had really weird plots, the characters were either unfunny or uninteresting, and the animation is the only thing keeping this from being a lower score.

    You know,if you get past the unfunny butt jokes,this show is not that bad.

    This show is kinda underrated if you ask me. Honestly,I've seen far worse shows on CN.

    But the premise is unoriginal and stupid. I mean,a kid is transferred to a animal school where he meets a monkey who's a complete JACKASS and he has to go there eveyday. It's like foster's home for imaginary friends meets camp lazlo! And the show also has a lot of plotholes,like shouldn't adam be eaten by now?

    The animation,though,I like. It's definitely not the best,but at least there's some effort put into it.

    The characters are the main thing I hate about this show. Adam is a whiny kid who's a complete and total geek. It's like he's mac from foster's,except that he has down syndrome. Jake is no better either,he's kinda like bloo - a COMPLETE AND TOTAL ASSHOLE!!! But at least bloo is funny as hell,but jake is just disgusting,annoying and unfunny. In fact,in one episode I think I saw him licking his butt or something. The other characters are average though they can also be complete jackasses at times!

    The humour is hit and miss. When the show relies on butt jokes,it fails MISERABLY!!! But when it's not it can actually be a little funny. The humour reminds of spongebob,but at least it doesn't reuse the same jokes.

    It had a huge chance of being CN`s best, but instead it went the opposite way

    By Raven77, Aug 08, 2013

    When I first hear of this show, I thought it would be great like Ed, Edd n Eddy but I almost got the opposite result. First off, why are the animals last names similar to thier species? It fails to sound convincing. The plot lines also vary. Some souned great like the one where Adam and Jake be one player to play football, the one where the duo try to get thier coaches job back from a cheetah and the one where Jake and two of his friends steakout on Adam. Others however are pathetic and made me gag, not with laughter, but by how annoying they were, not to mention stupid. For example, in one episode, Jake gets sent to a school for plants. Plants? Then the episode Sidekicked was stupid as it made no sence. Oh, and who could forget Making the grade and its dumb plot line?

    Now for the characters: I liked some of them. Adam Lyon was also liked Slips, Lupe, the assistant ferret, the frog principal and some minor background characters. Windsor and Ingrid are sort of likable but the others like that shark bully and the rhino teacher, I cant stand. I really cant stand Jake most of all. He`s Fanboy & ChumChum annoying. Plus, he`s like baboon from weasle: He goes overboard with his butt to the point where I`m desperate to change the channel. Some of the jokes were funny but the gross ones almost took the thrill out of the good ones are some episodes I can stand but a little more than half of them I`d rather watch something else. All I can say is, Cartoon Network could have done better with this show.moreless
