    When I tell you that this show is bad, I mean this show is BAD. Really, really bad. I mean I wouldn't even let a baby watch this. This world deserves better. This should be used as a torturing device in prisons. I mean, Nickelodeon is that what you want to be known for. Fanboy and Chum Chum? It doesn't even sound real. I don't want it to be real. Your channel used to have quality. Some kind of measure to keep animated gunk like this off your network. I'm not only disappointed but ashamed to have watched this. I probably need at least 10 years to purge myself from this travesty.



    Good day.moreless

    I must say, Nickelodeon has put out a lot of bad shows, even before this one, but none of them were nearly as bad as this complete and utter abomination. Everything about FB&CC is horrible, from the begininng to the end.



    The shows premise is about these 2 kids named Fanboy and Chum Chum who share their addiction to the super hero genre and have crazy adventures around town with their friends. Now the premise may sound unoriginal and overdone, but at least it could've made for something decent to watch, but unfortunately it's the opposite of that, instead were given a s**ty cartoon with annoying characters and gross animation.



    Almost all the characters in this show are annoying, the only likeable one is Kyle. Fanboy is super irritating and a complete idiot who is a wannabe super hero and fails in that. Same goes for his pal Chum Chum, and he tries so hard to be cute when he's not. The rest of the characters are as annoying as the protagonists. The only likeable one is Kyle, because he can't stand Fanboy and Chum Chum, and I truly don't blame him. Nothing that these characters did made me appreciate them in any way, shape or form, instead they all annoyed me to death. The designs are also unoriginal and copied from other media, Fanboy looks like Bart Simpson in his Bartman costume, Chum Chum looks almost like Milhouse except fatter, and Kyle looks like Harry Potter. You know a show is going to be bad when the creators can't make the character designs look unoriginal. It also seems to rip-off Spongebob in terms of personalities, with Fanboy being Spongebob, Chum Chum being Patrick, Kyle being Squidward and Oz being Mr Krabs.



    The plotlines are often been there done that storylines rehashed from other shows and hardly ever add anything new to them. It's usually Fanboy and Chum Chum sharing their love for the super hero genre while doing something like chewing gum or slurping slushies or something like that, then wandering around town annoying people and then getting into some sort of conflict, then solving their problem and then talking about how their day was.



    The animation is atrociously animated CGI animation that is choppy and doesn't flow fluidly at all. The artwork is way beyond colorful and seziure inducing its almost hypnotic, and the characters look ugly and deformed with their box heads, bug eyes, big teeth and small noses.



    While the set designs are mediocre at best, they look uninspired and might even be copied off from other shows.



    The humor is pretty much all just toilet humor that isn't funny in the slightest and is just overused and gross. It's ok if they use it as a source of humor, as long as its infrequent and doesn't go overboard, and it's relevant to the situation, but using it as your only form of conedy will make you lose viewers.



    Oh, and what kind of names are Fanboy, Chum Chum, Yo, Boog, Janitor Poopantaine etc. If it's a show with humans, you have to give them real names.



    Overall, thus show is definitely the worst show Nick ever made, and I'm so glad it's cancelled.moreless
