YMMV / Shut Up Cartoons

  • Acceptable Targets: Rich people were a very frequent target in Zombies vs. Ninjas.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Most, if not all of their shows have crossed this line at one point or another.
  • Designated Hero: Derf of Snowjacked. He frequently kills innocent people (and non-people), and is overall a very unpleasant person.
    • Same for Jimmy in Do's and Don'ts.
    • As of Episode #5, Oishi is this, after she orchestrates the murder of her teacher out of jealousy.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Do's and Don'ts pretty much lives off of deliberate examples of this.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Episode 9 of Zombies vs. Ninjas featured Donald Trump as a Death Seeker due to having an iron lung. This was already pretty funny in context, but it's even moreso when the real-life Trump would eventually become a widely controversial figure among the public.
  • Ho Yay: Fuzzy and the president, one sided on Fuzzy's part.
    • Les Yay side of this has a one sided (at the moment) with Debs towards Pubertina.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Jimmy eating Susie in "Deserted Island", to the point where The Narrator (normally the cause of the chaos through his tips) refuses to let him live it down for the rest of the episode. Lucky for Susie, the series has Negative Continuity.
    • He also decides to sacrifice the dog in order to summon a demonic entity which destroys the Earth just because he didn't like it.
    • Black Hole trying to kill Baby Earth by pulling him into his atom ripping void, which sounds bad enough till you realize Earth is portrayed as a toddler and the Black Hole situation has strong pedophile undertones and the fact that he tries to kill an infant is downright sick.
  • Most Annoying Sound: This video, which has Pubertina crying and talking between sobs on an overly long 12 minute loop.
    • In the video above she's a wangst too considering the reception.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Purple Goblin Head in Munroe episode 5.
  • Narm: Pubertina Episode 16 with some memetic faces during the dress up scene.
  • Nausea Fuel: Any and every scene involving the dirty diaper shed in Smosh Babies.
  • Pacing Problems: One of the many problems with the Pubertina shorts. Characters ramble and talk over each other so often before quickly taking a Plot Detour, that it's often difficult to follow without getting confused.
  • The Scrappy: Pubertina was easily the most disliked cartoon in the initial lineup, to the point where it was the only show at the time to have ratings disabled due to the episodes being the only videos on any Smosh channel where the dislikes outnumber likes.
    • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: As time went on, however, it seems to have found its audience, and reception to the Season 2 episodes seems to be a lot better.
    • Really Freaking Embarrassing is also met with hatred. Possibly even more so than Pubertina
    • Icons of Teen having the same effect as the above, with more people disliking than liking it.
  • Squick: The tampon song from episode #3 of Pubertina.
    • Pubertina's reaction to seeing a picture of what is presumed to be a penis in episode #4.
      • People's reaction to Pubertina as a whole.
    • Really Freaking Embarrassing is made of this.
