* VulgarHumor: Very, very much in favor of this and playing shocking, un-politically correct subjects for laughs. Ren and Stimpy is most famous for this due to its GrossoutShow nature, but his work after that cranks it up even further.

Ren and Stimpy is most famous for this due to its GrossoutShow nature, but his work after that cranks it up even further. In an interview discussing ''ComicBook/SpumcoComicBook'', he made it clear that his intention for it was to completely spit in the face of political correctness.
-->"There's this whole fucking Creator/BarbraStreisand movement to make people pretend they're not human; that they don't have human desires and they don't say human things in real life, and all it does is frustrate your natural urges. Eventually we're all going to become mass murderers. We're suppressing everything that comes natural to us. If there is any place where you should let out all of your frustrations, it's entertainment. Everybody has evil dirty thoughts. Most men love pretty girls; you're not supposed to love pretty girls anymore, which is like *insane.* If you hate all that stuff, you should buy our comic book. Our comic book is all about humanity. It's about the things that you really think about but you're afraid to say to anybody."

* BrokeTheRatingScale: He reviewed ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' on [[http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2009/09/review-of-meatballs.html his blog]], giving it a rating of "zero" despite liking a few things about it, such as the visuals. He said this was actually a good score, as he usually gives negative numbers to recent animated films.

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: His recent cartoons from around the 2010s and on abandoned the famous pose to pose LimitedAnimation and gross out humor style of Ren and Stimpy in favor of a ''very'' loose, downright surrealistic style of animation and humor. He claims after he got to watch a ton of early 1930s cartoons, he had simply grown bored with his old style and decided to go in a different direction.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: His works land on the Cynicism end of the scale, especially in ''Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon''. To put it gently, he has no tact when it comes to discussing offensive subject matter or the hardships of life and being a cartoonist. His definition of a real cartoonist (using cartoonists like Virgil Partch and Dan Gordon as examples) is basically that it requires you to be a hard edged, salty person who has a no nonsense outlook on life, but plays its hardships and the faults and hypocrisy of humanity for laughs. This, more than any other reason, is why he is in favor of cartoon animation of the kind like Fleischer and Warner Bros. did as opposed to that of Disney, whose worldview and style of cartooning is as far as you can get from that kind of abrasive outlook.
Heck, one of the unfinished episodes for it was called "Life Sucks".

* RatedMForManly: His works are shamelessly chauvinistic and go out of their way to play this up as part of their un-PC nature. It should come as no surprise since Kirk Douglas is John K's idol, as well as the fact that John is a big fan of film noir and the absolutely brutal 90's period of UFC.
