  • A decent cartoon with a great concept but contains several flaws

    7.5
    In all honesty, in my humble opinion, The Mighty B was an okay and decent show. From what I know, this is what the show is about:

    "The show focuses on a 9 and 3/4 year old honey bee scout named Bessie Higgenbottom, as she is determined to earn every single badge in the honey bee handbook in order to become a superhero called 'The Mighty B' and will stop at nothing to get them"

    Personally, I find this concept to be wonderful and amazing, however, the way the concept was shown on the series ended up triggering several flaws.

    Some of those flaws consist of Bessie's lisp accent, being really annoying, some of the gross outs scenes, and several other problems.

    On the plus side, the show does have decent animation and it sorta has that 'pizzazz' that was used in Ren & Stimpy and that interests me. As for the humor, it varies. Some of the episodes are decent, while some other episodes are gross, and sometimes boring. Some gross episodes include Dopplefinger with the booger stuff, as well as the chicken pox episode. The episode with the animatronic kangaroo was sorta ridiculous and could have really been improved on.

    However, not all the episodes are terrible, there are some actually decent episodes. Some that I have on mind include Something's Wrong with This Taffy, the kajolica episode, the episode with the booster shot was amusing, The Apprentice, Bee Afraid, the news editor reporter episode and a few other episodes I found to be good. I think The Dragonflies has a better written script than the other episodes.

    As for season two, I haven't seen all the episodes so I can't say anything for that season.

    All in all, I found the show to be decent, and even though it has several flaws, at least I find it tolerable, unlike later cartoons, like Fanboy and Chum Chum, Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, etc.

    I kinda wish that one day this show will be given a second chance and could be improved on so it doesn't have so many flaws to it. I wish that the writer could fix the several mistakes made in this show. That's all I got.moreless

    What the hell Nicktoons Network? You guys are morons! I can't believe you dumbasses canceled Ricky Sprocket and give The Mighty B another season instead. Losing respect for that channel if they want to renew unfunny garbage instead of their smart shows!

    Out of all the shows that were playing when Nickelodeon was just starting to go downhill, this one has got to be the worst. This show is about Bessie Higgenbottom, a nine and three quarters years old girl who lives in San Francisco, is the world's most dedicated Honeybee scout. She has earned more Bee Badges than any other Honeybee in history. Bessie is a zealous over-achiever with an ultimate goal of earning the remaining 584 badges and becoming an awesome superhero called the Mighty Bee. When Bessieever needs inspiration, she pretends that she is the Mighty Bee, whose powers range from people-skills to super strength and the ability to fly. But getting all the badges won't be easy. There are many obstacles lying in her way for her to overcome such as another Honeybee scout named Portia Gibbons who always tries to spoil Bessie's chances at earning the badge.



    Now on paper the idea sounds good, but it got broadcasted it was awfully executed. To begin with, this shows opening is just flat out annoying and hard to get past.



    The characters are not only unlikable and unmemorable, but also very stupid and annoying as well. The main protagonist, Bessie Higgenbottom, is incredibly irritating and stupid. She never shuts up, she fails in trying to earn badges, she makes an annoying sound when she earns a badge, and she talks to her finger which I find dumb. The dog Happy is a rip off to the dog from another Nicktoon called Doug. All the rest of her friends are just as overhyper and stupid as her.



    The voice acting is just awful and painful to listen to. Each character sounds annoying and very loud, I can't stand those God awful voices!



    While the artwork and animation aren't that bad, the characters look ugly and very unpleasant to stare at. Each one looks so quickly and poorly thought out that the artists didn't take enough time to design them.



    The humor consists of forced and bad puns that didn't work out, and as for the rest of humor, it's basically just crude humor. I'm ok with that type of humor as long as it's not overused, but this show goes overboard with it. In one episode a closeup of a characters scabs are seen, and in another episode Bessie laughed so hard that she sneezed on the floor and a monster under the bed grabbed her snot. Seeing all of these gross-out gags isn't funny, it's disgusting to say the least.



    The plots often range from making sense to making no sense at all to the point were it hurts your mind to figure out what you're watching.



    The Mighty B could've been a decent show, but it just fell flat and failed epicly. The characters are annoying and idiotic, there's too much gross humor, the voices are awful, the character designs look ugly, and it overall just didn't work out at all. I apologize to those who actually liked it, but this show is just stupid and I'm glad it's done with.moreless
