Series: Dude, What Would Happen?
"Dude, what would happen... if we cancelled your show?!?!"

Dude, What Would Happen? was a Cartoon Network reality show that attempted to be a kids' version of MythBusters, only they don't deal with myths or old wives' tales. Instead, they usually are given a question, and then use it as an excuse to do "wacky" hijinks, la Jackass.

This show provides examples of:

  • Follow the Leader: It's clear they're trying to make a MythBusters-style show. In practice, it's more like a kid-friendly Jackass.
  • Food and Animal Attraction: In one episode, one of the guys dresses as a carrot to lure a horse.
  • Never Trust a Trailer: They would often try to pass this off as some kind of kid-friendly science show (AKA A Mythbusters ripoff) when in reality it's "doing stupid stuff for the sake of it".
  • Surfer Dude: They seem to be trying to go for this anyway.
  • Totally Radical: The title says it all. The guys don't talk like people.
