"Dude, what would happen... if we cancelled your show?!?!"

Dude, What Would Happen? was one of a slew of reality shows produced by Cartoon Network for "CN Real" in 2009. It and fellow show Destroy Build Destroy were both cancelled on September 21, 2011, making them both the longest-running "CN Real" shows.

The show attempted to be a kids' version of MythBusters, only they don't deal with myths, old wives' tales, or things kids might actually ask. Instead, they usually are given a question, and then use it as an excuse to do "wacky" hijinks, à 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.
