Trivia / Johnny Test

  • Actor Allusion:
  • Adored by the Network: Is constantly getting new episodes and reruns, despite having a huge Hatedom. Eventually the network got sick of it as well, but found they had no choice but to keep making it thanks to certain Canadian laws.
    • It doesn't help that more well-liked shows were alledgedly replaced to make room for it.
    • Christmas Day 2014 was "Johnny Test-Mas"—-a marathon of Johnny Test including episodes that weren't aired before the show was cancelled. Way to spread some holiday cheer, CN.
    • It's just as bad in Canada, since Season 2 and beyond are produced for Cancon. However, Teletoon airs Seasons 2 and 3 over and over again, but enjoys the show as much as the American broadcaster. Season 1 has never aired. (Likely because Teletoon doesn't own the rights to the American-produced Season 1
  • Channel Hop: From CW4Kids (formally Kids WB) to Cartoon Network, made official with the coming of a fourth season.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Supposedly, this was why the series lasted so long despite having a large Hatedom. Compared to other shows, Johnny Test was incredibly cheap to make, so much so that even with the bare minimum of people watching it, Cartoon Network could still turn a profit on it. Considering it primarily aired when Cartoon Network was going through hard times, it's believed this fact was what caused it to become Adored by the Network despite its haters, simply because no matter what time-slot they put it in, they could always profit off of it, and use it to fill airspace when they couldn't afford to do so with other shows. In essence, Johnny Test was filling airtime while still turning profit was what allowed other, more budget expensive shows like Adventure Time and Regular Show to see the light of day and, notably, once the channel was able to handle itself once again, Johnny Test was canned not long afterwards.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: One of the possible factors in the show's eventual cancellation. According to TV producer David Straiton, he and Scott Fellows created the concept for Johnny Test back in 1995, and unsuccessfully pitched it to a number of networks. Years later, he finds out that Scott Fellows got the show on TV and David Straiton got no credit and no money from it, which led to David Straiton suing Scott Fellows for fraud and accounting malfeasance.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • In Season Five, Louis Chirillo has been replaced with Trevor Devall. And it is EXTREMELY noticeable, with the entire voice pitch changed and Trevor struggling to keep the same inflections with obvious throat pain (going by the rough, scratchy noises). And for all his effort he just ends up sounding like Hugh Test.
    • Mary Test was voiced by Brittney Wilson in Season One before Ashleigh Ball took over. For whatever reason, Brittney returned for Season Five before Ashleigh resumed the role again for Season 6.
  • Toilet Humor: "Dookie" is a juvenile euphemism for poop.
  • What Could Have Been: A full-length movie was actually considered at one point. The series is cancelled now, so it's very unlikely to get made.
