Yakkity Yak

Show Summary

Everyone seeks attention. Some kids strive for the honor roll. Some kids score touchdowns. Other kids wear black and get tattoos. And there's always one kid who wants to be the class clown... Meet Yakkity Yak. Yakkity's a teenager who aspires to be a standup comedian and is so serious about his career that he's already gotten himself an agent, Mr. Trilobyte, a small but gruff insect. Someday he hopes to hit it big but until then he's happy being the football team's mascot at the school that he attends with his best friends Keo, Yakkity's neighbor whose pineapple head was the result of relationship between a talking pineapple and an actress, and Lemony, a young girl who is usually the voice of reason within the group. Yakkity lives in the small town of Onion Falls where he's raised by Granny Yak, his loving grandmother, who is making ends meet by renting out a room to Professor Crazyhair, a wacky scientist with hair that's constantly changing colors, and his assistant/daughter Penelope, a teen robot and another one of Yakkity's friends. Other residents in Onion Falls include Mr. Highpants, the candy store owner, and Lemony's brother Rondo Jr., a football player at Yakkity's school (who doesn't think Yakkity's very funny). This animated series is produced entirely in Flash at Studio B's new 1400 square foot Flash studio and distributed worldwide by MTV International. Broadcast Histor: Yakkity Yak was created by Australian-based Kapow Pictures and co-produced by Nickelodeon Australia and Canada's Studio B Productions. It first premiered in January 2003 on Canada's Teletoon, where it was an instant hit, then the show got its Australian premiere in September 2003 on Network Ten. The show made its way to U.S. television when Nickelodeon premiered four episodes in a special two-hour block at 2pm on Sunday, November 9, 2003. Finally, in January 2004, Yakkity Yak premiered on UK's NickToons TV. Only 13 half-hour shows (made up of 26 eleven minute episodes) where shown in America. 3 eleven minute episodes not seen in the U.S. where seen in Canada. Meanwhile, the entire series, consisting of 52 eleven minute episodes, has actually been shown in Australia on Network Ten and on NickToons TV in England. In the U.S., Yakkity Yak reruns can currently be seen on NickToons TV. Editor's Note: Episodes, air dates and production order in this guide refer to the series as shown on Nickelodeon (USA). The order and presentation of episodes may differ in other countries. Trivia: * The famous song "Yakety Yak" (used as the theme song) was created by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, a famous duo who also created the hit songs "Jailhouse Rock" and "Hounddog," songs made popular by Elvis Presley, as well as other hits. * The show's opening titles were inspired by the openings to old cartoons from the '60s such as The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.moreless

  • Calling this show abysmal is too kind. It deserves to be called every bad word in the whole world.

    Words alone can't describe the pain and horror that is Yakkity Yak. The show is about a Yak named Yakkity who wants to be class clown, and has adventures. He also has a friend who is, I am not kidding here, a pineapple for a head. It's just as stupid as it sounds. All the humor that is usually shown in this show is just terrible and flat. There is no appeal at all to anyone. The artwork and animation looks horrible. Characters are drawn so weird and strange, like a guy who literally has a body that is a pair of pants. The characters are all terrible. Yakkity is just annoying, the pineapple is always grouchy and not in a good way, and the guy with high pants for a body is supposed to be funny, but isn't. The stories are extremely bland and forgettable. Everything about this show is just so wrong. The characters are terrible and really weird, the stories aren't interesting, the humor is not funny in the least bit, and it should never have been made at all. I am just so appalled about this show, for your sake stay away from Yakity Crap!moreless
  • Yakkity Yak

    Me and my Caucasian friend have watched an episode of Yakkity Yak, and these reviewers are biased and simply don't understand. This show is the best!!!!!!! If I could give it eleven stars, I would! This show is amazing. Yakkity Yak is proof there is a higher being!!!!!
  • Wow, this crap is lame, again!

    This is honestly one of the dumbest shows Nick has ever made. It's basically just a bout a dumb yak who wants to be a comedian, but is not funny. It's just dumb. First off, his friends. Why does his buddy Keo have a pineapple for a head?! And why does Keo's father just have a pineapple head?! A genetically bad experiment?!! Man, it gets dumber! His other friend Lemony. I don't really know why, but I don't like her. She is annoying! I don't like that Professor Crazyhairs fellow, either. I liked Penelope, but she was getting annoying as well. Second, Yakkity is claimed to be a teenager. Yet he looks like a 12-year-old to me. What's up with that? Third, this show comes on Nicktoons Network barely, but it doesn't deserve to be on there, because it is not a real Nicktoon, nor is it fit to be, along with Shuriken School, Martin Mystery, and some other shows!!! This show was really suckish, and I'm glad it's gone!moreless
  • I hate this show. Hate it hate it hate it. HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate this show. It sucks. It is just a worthless piece of crap that should never have been thought of. If I had to make a list of the bottom five tv shows of all time, this would be on it. Everything about it is just plain wrong. It is best summed up in two words, retarded and irredeemable.The animation is pathetic. The characters are unlikable. The plotlines are impossible to follow and are stupid in their own right. The voice acting sucks. I could forgive all of that if it was funny, but it's not funny. But it simply, I hate this retarded piece of crap.moreless
  • Don't watch this show, unless your on crack!

    OMG! What was that?! This was on Nickelodean?! OMFG that was one of the worst things I ever saw aire on TV! It's worse than Back at The Barnyard and The Secret Show. This is such an overrated show, it shouldn't even be rated mediocre by TV.COM, it should be rated ZER0!!! This was the era when Nick started using crack. The Nicktoons from the olden days are WAAAY better than this mud puttle. I cant believe I thought this show would be good when it first aired, but it was so terrible, it only lasted a little more than a month. It's also a ripoff of Ren & Stimpy, it used Ren & Stimpy humor but only worser. This show makes some mediocre Barney episodes look interesting.
