* ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch: A rather infamous one regarding ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': John K. (under the pseudonym Tom Paine) bashed the show before it aired, even admitting he hadn't watched a full episode.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: His works land on the Cynicism end of the scale, especially in ''Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon''. 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 ''Adult Party Cartoon'' was called "Life Sucks", and its every bit as nihilistic as you'd expect.

* 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. 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.
