** In Season Five, Louis Chirillo has been replaced with Creator/TrevorDevall. It's very noticeable, with the voice pitch changed completely and Trevor struggling to keep the same inflections with obvious throat pain (going by the rough, scratchy noises). And for all his effort, he just ends up sounding like Hugh Test.

* MoneyDearBoy: Supposedly, this was why the series lasted so long despite having a large {{Hatedom}}. Compared to other shows, ''Johnny Test'' was incredibly cheap to make, so much so that even with the bare minimum of people watching it, Creator/CartoonNetwork could ''still'' turn a profit on it. Considering it primarily aired when Cartoon Network was going through hard times, it's believed this fact was what caused it to become AdoredByTheNetwork despite its haters, simply because no matter ''what'' time-slot they put it in, they could always profit off of it, and use it to fill airspace when they couldn't afford to do so with other shows. In essence, ''Johnny Test'' filling airtime while still turning a profit was what allowed other, more expensive shows like ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' to see the light of day. And, notably, once the channel was able to handle itself again, ''Johnny Test'' was canned not long afterwards.

** [[Creator/ScottMcNeil Zizrar, King of the Mole People]] who has a very similar voice to a certain iguana said at the end of Season 3, "[[WesternAnimation/KryptoTheSuperdog Man, I hate that kid and super dog!]]"

** It doesn't help that more well-liked shows were alledgedly replaced to make room for it.
** Christmas Day 2014 was "Johnny Test-Mas"---a marathon of Johnny Test including episodes that weren't aired before the show was cancelled. [[TrollingCreator Way to spread some holiday cheer, CN.]]
** It's just as bad in Canada, since Season 2 and beyond are produced for Cancon. However, Creator/{{Teletoon}} airs [[SeasonalRot Seasons 2 and 3]] over and over again, but enjoys the show as much as [[Creator/CartoonNetwork the American broadcaster]]. Season 1 has never aired. (Likely because Teletoon doesn't own the rights to the [[ScrewedByTheLawyers American-produced Season 1]])
* ChannelHop: From [=CW4Kids=] (formally Kids WB) to Cartoon Network, made official with the coming of a fourth season.

* PeripheryHatedom: ''Johnny Test'' is mostly well known for its lack of popularity and for the brutal and intense amount of hate from the public. Originally the show didn't receive as much hate during its first couple of seasons but because of the lawsuit placed on Scott Fellows combined with the fact that Kids WB was rapidly deteriorating in popularity because of removing shows like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Xiaolin Showdown from its timeslots, "Johnny Test" was forced into hiatus before it eventually moved to Cartoon Network and Teletoon and started airing episodes there. By this time, viewers watched it and noticed that the show had transitioned to flash animation and started to rely more on running gags that became very annoying to them over time.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: One of the possible factors in the show's deterioration and eventual cancellation. According to TV producer David Straiton, he and Scott Fellows created the concept for Johnny Test back in 1995, and unsuccessfully pitched it to a number of networks. Years later, he finds out that Scott Fellows got the show on TV and David Straiton got no credit and no money from it, which led to David Straiton suing Scott Fellows for fraud and accounting malfeasance.
