* LoveItOrHateIt: He's either a brilliant cartoonist who rejuvenated the animation industry by reintroducing "cartoonie" cartoons or an [[SmallNameBigEgo arrogant fanboy]] who [[PromotedFanboy got lucky]] because he worked with RalphBakshi.
** [[TakeAThirdOption Others]] see him as a very talented and passionate cartoonist who knows a great deal about his craft, but also acknowledge his [[CausticCritic flaws]] [[NostalgiaFilter which]] [[SmallNameBigEgo don't directly involve his cartooning ]].

* InternetBackdraft: Bringing up his name on message boards or YouTube videos are a good way to start long-winded rants from fans, detractors, and apologists.

* [[AllAnimationIsDisney All Animation That Looks Like John K. is John K.]]: There are a handful of animations out there which were either influenced by or ripped off his style, such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Flintstones}}: On the Rocks'', ''WesternAnimation/TheHauntedWorldOfElSuperBeasto'', ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', many of which were made by former Spunco employees.

* AllAnimationIsDisney: He has never worked for Disney. Despite this, there are a few products out there which have a similar style to his, which is where the confusion comes from. Most of the products were made by former workers of Spumco (or people inspired by Spumco) such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Flintstones}}: On the Rocks'', ''WesternAnimation/TheHauntedWorldOfElSuperBeasto'', ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''. The list could go on.
** This, generally, is an attitude he does his best to subvert - while he enjoys classic Disney works for being slick and well produced, he's far more partial to Warner Bros. and other companies for their rawer, more anarchic style.

* ScapegoatCreator: He is largely blamed for the failure of ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy: [[DarkerAndEdgier Adult]] [[HotterAndSexier Party]] [[RatedMForMoney Cartoon]]'', with fans claiming that [[ProtectionFromEditors he got too much creative freedom]] on the latter which "ruined" the show--even though John has pointed out that the show still went through ExecutiveMeddling and censorship (this time, through Spike TV instead of Nickelodeon, though both channels are owned by Viacom, so it's really a case of "same shit, different dump"), forcing him to put in [[RatedMForMoney excessive adult humor]] to compete with ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' (though, at the time, ''South Park'' was at that point where it was mixing in social commentary with its gross-out humor and taking it beyond fart jokes from the 1990s) and Creator Creator/AdultSwim (which doesn't really delve in gross-out humor. Adult Swim's humor is laden with pop culture references, DeadBabyComedy, and/or bizarre, non sequitur humor).
