YMMV / Horrid Henry

  • Bizarro Episode: Episodes such as Horrid Henry's Dinosaur Day and Horrid Henry, My Weird Family are this.
  • Designated Hero: Henry treats his family, his teachers and most of his classmates rudely and carelessly, as his aliterative name implies.
  • Ho Yay: Horrid Henry and Rude Ralph. No really, I'm not kidding.
    • In the episode 'Horrid Henry's Favorite Day' Henry enters himself into a 'best brothers' contest to win a new computer game. Instead of being nice to his brother Peter, Henry dresses Ralph up as Peter and they stage pictures of Henry being nice to Peter. In one of the pictures Henry kisses Ralph on the cheek. And in the final picture after the kiss Henry is shown smiling implying he might of liked kissing Ralph. Sadly Ralph is shown being freaked out in the final picture and after they finish taking pictures for the contest, Ralph wipes Henry's kiss off. Henry happy to have kissed Ralph on the cheek in addition to getting the pictures he needed for the contest is oblivious to Ralph's feelings.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In the episode, Horrid Henry and the Alien Invasion, Henry is led to believe that Margaret and several other characters have been taken over by aliens because they are acting Out of Character towards him and singing a song about being lovely, which worries Henry to the point where he sets off the school's fire alarm to warn others of the invasion.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: From Series 3, the show and its animation worsens and Henry is losing his character. In one episode, where Henry turns into a dinosaur (for nearly the entire episode), after saving a woman's pet from a tree, Henry has decided to become the opposite of what his name implies, which is him watching "Happy Hippos" with his brother.
  • They Just Didn't Care: In the 'Gizmo' episode, where Henry plays a joke on Peter by lying to him that the 'Golden Gizmo' is cursed and Peter is begging Henry not to die, his mouth doesn't move the same time as he is talking. How did they not notice this?
    • How about the 'Perfect Plant' episode? Spotless Sam's jumper changed colours in different shots.
    • Henry's second birthday episode for this fan.
    • Most of the animation and storylines from Series 3 are an example of this.
