* CriticalBacklash: While the show still maintains a very large hate fanbase, it's slowly starting to fall under this trope as well. While it isn't a ''bad'' show, people who watched it after hearing about the immense amount of hate it gets tend to have this reaction. some episodes are enjoyable. It just had the unfortunate timing of being a flawed-but-decent cartoon that became AdoredByTheNetwork while Creator/CartoonNetwork was starting to undo it's years of NetworkDecay.

** 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 a episode is revealed that in his personal POV of the world, girls don't exist.

** Another one. Everyone points their hatred for the show just because it's similar to ''Dexter's Laboratory''. While that was a point of contention when it originally premiered, a good number of viewers were willing to look past it as it was different enough not to be a carbon copy (people seems to forget ''a lot'' of shows will have similarities) and even welcomed it ''due'' to said similarities since Dexter had long since stopped airing. No, the ''true'' reason why it was hated was because Cartoon Network and Teletoon went overboard on broadcasting it, especially when it was used as a replacement for ''DC Nation'' in the U.S (which also suffered from CN's wonky programing schedule and ironically would premiere the next overplayed series ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''). By this point, viewers had gotten sick of the constant airings and detractors started listing any faults of the show to make it look like it was one of the worst cartoons ever.

** Let's not forget, there was also an episode of Dexter's Lab called "Dexter's Lab" in which Dexter finds a lost dog which he teaches to speak English.
** Not helping the show's case, the concept for Johnny Test was supposedly created in 1995, in other words, shortly after the first episode of Dexter's Lab aired in February 1995.

* VindicatedByHistory: Now that the constant airings for JT have ceased (it's shows up occasionally on ''Boomerang''), the vitriol has loosened up since the show wasn't being shoved in our face anymore and thus didn't give haters something to complain about. Say what you want about the show, but at the least the hatred didn't start until after CN started overplaying it which, as you can see on this page, was the main complaint against it. To many before that happened, it was an average enough comedy series. After it finally ended, it got replaced with something that many viewers considered far worse: ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', which had much more unlikable characters, stupid plots and was constantly airing around the clock to the point detractors would rather go back to this series. When some viewers compared the two shows, they admitted at the least ''Johnny Test'' tries to be likeable and funny, and was a much more bearable watch than ''[=TTG=]''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The only plausible explanation for the show's low quality. Or so detractors say anyway, the show was pretty simple to begin with that there wasn't much to really bog down.

* CriticProof: The show's detractors will tell you it's as one of the worst cartoons ever made; the show has run for '''seven seasons'''.

* {{Misblamed}}: A meta-example. Critics (mainly [[AmericansHateTingle American]] [[CulturalCringe and Canadian]]) sometimes use this show as an example that Canadian animation is horrible and should stop being produced, with [[HitlerAteSugar some even going out and claiming that all Canadian animation is bad.]] What many people forget is that [[Creator/ScottFellows the creator]] [[Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor and the voice actor for the]] [[TheScrappy unlikable titular character]] are Americans.

** One episode had Johnny and Dukey being transported to a genderbent dimension. It's highly likely it was created in the wake of the popularity of the Fionna & Cake episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''.



** Probably the worst example of this would be the Website/YouTube (or rather, [[BlandNameProduct "Snoobtube"]]) episode... in 2010.
