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.
  • 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?
    • Most of the animation and storylines from Series 3 are an example of this.
    • How about the 'Perfect Plant' episode? Spotless Sam's jumper changed colours in different shots.
