YMMV / Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

  • Bile Fascination
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Alana unknowingly using a Hitachi vibrator as a microphone? Hilarious. Her sister's awkward expression of "I can't tell her what that is"? Side-splitting.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Much of the show can feel this way in the wake of its cancellation and June's relationship with a child molester... specifically, the man who molested her own daughter.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: Alana even identifies herself as fat, despite not being that much bigger than other kids her age.
  • Internet Backdraft: The fact that the show was created in the first place, as it is a spin-off of the controversial Toddlers & Tiaras.
  • Love It or Hate It: The show in a nutshell. A large number of people absolutely despise the show and how far a network formerly known as The Learning Channel has fallen. On the other hand, some supporters (such as Rosie O'Donnell) like the show and appreciate that it features a family who are genuinely loving and caring toward one another (O'Donnell compared it favorably to the Real Housewives franchise, saying she finds the show preferable to watching a bunch of spoiled rich housewives screaming about how much they hate each other). Still others take something of a neutral stance to the show, but do feel like flinging venom at a little girl is pretty distasteful.
  • Memetic Mutation: Mama June resembling Krang.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Aside from some Squick moments, the show is really just a basic sitcom of a happy redneck family.
  • Squick: Some of the stuff that they're shown eating may induce this reaction. One example is Alana's favorite drink, "Go-Go Juice". It's a mix of Mountain Dew and Red Bull. That's a lot of caffeine for a seven-year-old to be drinking...
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: It even has Honey Boo Boo in the title. Well, diabetes and cholesterol.
    • The aforementioned "Go-Go Juice" probably literally tastes like diabetes.
