  • This Show Was Ok, Just Never Got Its Spotlight

    This show was funny in my opinion, it just never got the audience it wanted. I believe that the show had a very unique story line and should have been improved instead nuked. Now I also do not blame people for saying it was not all that good. But to me I believe the show never got its correct image, therefore the show was called "immiture, wierd, and dull", but honestly it was barely grown show and had only 2 years in Cartoon Networks spotlight. I wish it could have gotten a second chance and I think the humor was excellent and brand new in a kind of way. However I can agree I have a love hate relationship for the gross out imagery.moreless
  • The Marvelous Misadventures of Crapjack

    I just made a clever pun. Anyways, I think this show was decent and okay, I just made a clever pun in the title. Creepy show but it is okay. Flapjack was okay, nothing more, nothing less. Not a godawful show but it isn't one of Cartoon Network's best shows, either.
  • One Of The Best Cartoon Network Shows During The Great Deppresion Of Quality

    This show was really funny for me. Its all weird and quirky and I could see why it would turn people off but for me it makes it funnier. Also Captain Knuckles is one of my favorite characters of all time.
  • Ugggh!

    God! This show! I couldn't stand it when it came on TV. Of all the Cartoon Network shows that aired while it was still good, Flapjack was by far the worst. Admittedly, I didn't watch it past the first season, but that's because I found "Marvelous" (Hahaha, no. No it's not) Misadventures of Flapjack so unbearable that I didn't want to continue with it.

    The characters by far were the most annoying part of the whole show. It's side characters never left an impact, K'nuckles was a jerk most of the time, the only redeeming character I found was the whale, her tough demeanor combined with that voice, she made me laugh more than a couple times. Then, we have the title character himself. Flapjack is by far the worst part about this show. His voice is grating, and his personality is Ungodly annoying! If your main character is this unlikable, then that doesn't bode well for the show itself.

    Also, I don't like this animation style. I'm aware that it's the same as Regular Show, and really, what're the differences between the two. They're both really bad cartoons with annoying and unlikable characters. The show's drawn in a way that makes every character look ugly. The only show where it's any good is in Gravity Falls, cause at least the humans are drawn to actually look like humans in that show. As for the show's humor... What humor? There really was none to be found.

    I can't believe that Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack lasted three seasons. Did people really like it that much? Cause I can't find any redeeming factor for Flapjack accept for the sassy whale. Oh well, I'm just glad this stopped showing on TV. If it does ever come on again though, STAY AWAY FROM IT! It's a horrible cartoon.moreless
  • This is one of those shows with mixed opinions I actually enjoyed.

    I enjoyed this show when it came out when I was in 1st grade, and I actually liked this show looking back at it. They should bring this show back on the air and cancel other crappy shows like Uncle Grandpa. After this show and Chowder went off the air, Cartoon Network was airing a bunch of crappy shows like Almost Naked Animals, Scaredy Squirrel, Problem Solverz and Sidekick, pretty much saying that CN was on its last legs until they got back on their toes with shows like Regular Show, Clarence, Steven Universe and so on. I also don't see why people don't like this show, maybe it's due to the fact that there are some gross close-ups at times. Just because there are very few gross-out jokes here and there, it doesn't make a show bad. It's only if they go overboard with it.moreless
