** The amount of screaming in the show is very grating; the number of screams is high enough to qualify as [[TVTropesDrinkingGame drinking game]] material, although [[ShmuckBait a dangerous one]].
** Johnny's squeaky voice. A shame, since [[Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor his voice actor is actually]] [[ManOfAThousandVoices very talented.]]

** The amount of screaming makes this show hard to watch for viewers with sensitive hearing; the number of screams is high enough to qualify as [[TVTropesDrinkingGame drinking game]] material, although [[ShmuckBait a dangerous one]].

Added DiffLines:

* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: The first season had a completely different production team from the rest of the series, and while considered [[SoOkayItsAverage average]], it's still held in higher regard than the rest of the series.

* DeaderThanDisco: Believe it or not, ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' was actually fairly popular during its first few years (having a higher budget and completely different production team probably helped). Now it's one of the most hated cartoons ''of all time''. The only reason it's still running is apparently because of a Canadian law forcing Canadian animation to be constantly churned out[[note]]due to "[[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_content Canadian content]]" policies, to promote Canadian culture [[/note]] (the show's ratings are abysmal). It's very telling that its season boxsets are sold solely in ''bargain bins''.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Mr. Black and Mr. White'' especially are borderland scrappies due to the fact the show tries ''way'' to hard to enforce HoYay with them (In comparison to the HeterosexualLifePartners trope in the beginning) and the fact they suffer TooDumbToLive. ''A lot''.

* BrokenBase: The show does have its fans considering it has seven seasons due to having some good dialogue, parental bonuses, and admittedly some clever plot lines; but, due to overexposure from its respective networks, stagnant character development, way too much focus on Johnny (who many think to be unlikable), and flash animation in the later seasons, many have likewise taken a hating for it. Not to mention that anti-fans believe that Canadian laws that require Canadian-only programming in their television stations is the only reason why it lasted so long.

** The flash animation (starting in season two and getting worse from there) and bizarre, strangely exaggerated facial expressions (along with most characters' lack of pupils) are surprisingly unsettling; none of this is helped by the unappealing (or just plain ugly in some cases) character designs.

** Gil is noticeably always excited to see Johnny; yet when he sees Johnny's sisters, he can't even remember their names. To make matters worse, in an episode it is revealed that in his personal POV of the world, girls don't exist. He once asked Johnny in "Nightmare on Johnny's Stree to have a candle lit dinner with him after he gets rescued by Johnny with Johnny saying okay to this dinner and high fives gil in agreement. Also in that same episode, Gil gets kidnapped by a Cyclops monster who is clearly male due to its chest and that monster shows a heart in its eye as an expression of love towards Gil but this was a direct result of Susan and Mary's dream on Gil clashing with Johnny's monster dreams.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Believe it or not, '''Johnny''' is this! some people actually defend this guy and see him as a ButtMonkey and sympathize with him due to his horrid father and the more rabid haters in real life while others still can't get past their hate towards this guy since he can be very whiny or despicable at times and yet we're supposed to constantly root for him even at his worst.
