YMMV: Sanjay And Craig
  • Anvilicious: "Road Pizza" tells us to never force your opinions onto someone else.
  • Broken Base: Is it a funny, charming show that serves as a throwback to the cartoons of 90's Nickelodeon, or is it an annoying, gross knock-off of Cartoon Network's current programming (specifically Adventure Time and Regular Show).
  • Complaining about Shows You Don't Watch: Got hit with this when the promos started showing up.
  • Crazy Awesome: Party Doctors!
    • "Trouble Dare" not only brought back the very concept of Family Double Dare, set and all, but they also got John Harvey (the announcer) and Marc Summers to play themselves.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "I'm the Real Megan" from "Release the Craigan".
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
    • The "Kerplunk'd" theme.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Remington Tufflips, bordering into Memetic Badass.
  • Forced Meme: The "viral" advertising campaign before the show's premiere that shoved the characters into every Image Macro template that the creators could find and put them up on Tumblr. That alone would be just annoying and not bad if it weren't for the fact that each one was a paid sponsor post and thus showed up on everyone's dashboard, whether users wanted to see it or not.
  • Growing the Beard: "Trouble Dare" is this for some people.
    • "A Tale of Two Snakes" as well.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Mr. Noodman will do anything to kill Craig and prevent Sanjay from having fun. But when you see how his father treats him during "Family Re-Noodman", you can't help but feel sorry for him.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: The only episode some people have watched of this series is the Double Dare episode.
  • Love It or Hate It: Opinions are mixed. It doesn't help that they're pushing the show on Tumblr users, making it so the posts from their page even appear on the dashboards of users who aren't following them.
  • Misblamed: Many fans of the Short-Lived and Obscure Robot And Monster saw it as a horrible replacement to their show.
  • Nausea Fuel: For starters, Sanjay and Craig get covered in bird poop in the pilot.
    • The partner episode to that revolved around a giant ass transplant. It's about as pleasant as it sounds.
      • Even better is Sanjay's neighbor's attempt at a Sexy Walk with his bubble butt.
    • Pretty much the entirety of "Unbarfable".
    • The fact that Mr. Noodman not only unwittingly ate snake eggs, then vomiting out a lot of baby snakes from his mouth and nose, in "Family Re-Noodman".
  • Nightmare Fuel: In "Curb Dawgz", Hector gets his hand impaled by Craig's fangs whilst trying to high-five Sanjay, who was using Craig as a pair of arms at the time. The exposure to snake venom leaves Hector's whole arm horrifically swollen, resulting him to lose consciousness and pass out. To add insult to injury, they show the gruesome scene again at the end of the episode!
  • Pandering to the Base: Seriously, what kid aged 6-12 in 2013 would know what Family Double Dare is?
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks: As soon as the first commercial for it aired, some cartoon fans accused it of copying Regular Show and/or Adventure Time.
    • Possibly a little bit of Flapjack, too. Doesn't help that the creator of Flapjack also works on this show.
  • Tear Jerker: "Stinkboy" has Sanjay running away when not even Craig can tolerate his terrible smell from falling into the Dicksons' pool.
