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.

* 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.

In its place came another Flash-animated series, ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', which, unlike ''Johnny Test'', which was used to keep ''Adventure Time'' and ''Regular Show'', is being used seemingly as a weapon to kill them, either because of their age, or rumors that current network management is made up of MoralGuardians.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A full-length movie was actually considered at one point. The series is cancelled now, so it's more than likely never going to be made.
