YMMV / Butt-Ugly Martians

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: Just what exactly made them think that parents would like their kids watching a show with a name like "Butt-Ugly Martians"?
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Despite the quality of the show, its theme tune is oddly catchy.
  • Ear Worm: B! K-M! B! B! K-M!
    • BKM, by the way, stands for "Butt-Kicking Mode".
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Was most popular in the UK, at least with the people marketing it.
  • Special Effects Failure: The title is accurate to a degree. But it isn't just the martians that are butt ugly.
    • Oddly, the action sequences involving space ships usually looked quite nice, completely contrasting the stilted character animation.
  • Stylistic Suck: A good argument in favour of the martians looking ugly is, well, this trope - it's called "Butt-ugly martians" for a reason. The humans, however... (See Uncanny Valley)
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Inexplicably managed to get three different licensed games. They're mediocre to terrible.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The show's premise of alien invaders falling in love with the place they're supposed to be conquering is admittedly quite interesting, and it has a lot of good ideas and character designs. But the show is more interested in fart jokes and using overdone storylines to actually do anything with these ideas. And of course, the clunky animation doesn't help.
  • Uncanny Valley: Keep in mind, this show was considered cheap and ugly even back in 2002!
