YMMV / Grossology

  • Adaptational Displacement: Raise your hand if you know the books this show was based on.
  • Creepy Cute: The termites from episode one. Especially the little ones. (They could qualify for regular cute, but they're still giant insects under Insectiva's command.)
  • Cult Classic: It still has a small yet dedicated fanbase to this day, despite never really receiving much mainstream attention.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Chester/Kid Rot only appeared in two episodes, but is beloved by the fans for his status as The Woobie and relationship with Abby.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A tall, skinny female with Rapunzel Hairnote  and an association with bugs...are we talking about Insectiva or UB-02 Beauty/Pheromosa?
  • Heartwarming Moments: As scary as the whole situation was, it's refreshing to see Fartor treating Far-Ty so well, considering the usual trend of villain-minion interaction in fiction. He even said they were family!
  • Nightmare Fuel: One villain of the week tries to take "four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie" literally by putting pigeons in a pie on a Conveyor Belt of Doom that leads into a retort.
    • Far-Ty was also pretty creepy, especially since the brainwashing worked so well; him helping take Abby hostage and her desperation to get her little brother back doesn't help matters.
    • Abby being replaced by the rat-clone was kinda disturbing, especially since her captor is an adult male and it's clear she's powerless to escape for a good while.
  • Squick: What did you expect from a show called Grossology? The entire point of the series is to educate people on topics most people would find disgusting.
  • The Woobie: Chester. A young scientist picked on by his classmates, he tried to make something that would wow them all...and ended up getting infected with a parasite that gave him a highly destructive Superpowered Evil Side that he has absolutely no control over. Poor kid needs a hug.
