* 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.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Is constantly getting new episodes and reruns, despite having a ''huge'' {{Hatedom}}. Eventually the network [[OurProductSucks got sick of it as well]], but found they had no choice but to keep making it thanks to certain Canadian laws.

* 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'' was filling airtime while still turning profit was what allowed other, more budget expensive shows like ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' and ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' to see the light of day and, notably, once the channel was able to handle itself once again, ''Johnny Test'' was canned not long afterwards.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: One of the possible factors in the show's 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.

* ToiletHumor: "Dookie" is a juvenile euphemism for poop.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A full-length movie was actually considered at one point. The series is cancelled now, so it's very unlikely to get made.

** In Season Five, Louis Chirillo has been replaced with Creator/TrevorDevall. And it is EXTREMELY noticeable, with the entire voice pitch changed 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.

Added DiffLines:

** The original pilot used to pitch the show used American voice actors (with Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor as Johnny Test) before switching to Canadian voice actors for the series proper. Despite this, James kept his role since the Canadian voice actor that replaced him didn't sound close enough to his voice, and so he redubbed the dialogue and kept his role for the rest of the series.
