YMMV / Sidekick

  • Cult Classic
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: People are either appalled by the mean-spirited jokes on the show or just become indifferent towards them. It doesn't help when nearly everyone is cruel towards Eric or Kitty and even Eric has a nasty streak now and then.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Mandy Struction.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Eric/Kitty and Eric/Mandy.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Eric or Kitty at times, when they weren't a full-on woobie.
  • Love It or Hate It: The mean-spirited jokes don't help.
  • Moe: Look at the designs. They look quite cute.
  • The Scrappy: Trevor, partly because he seems to be nothing more than a bottomless resource for fart jokes and disturbing gross humor. Also partly because he bullies Eric and the others sometimes (and KNOWS it too) despite calling Eric his friend; making him look like a Jerkass who makes the audience wonder why the gang still hangs out with him. Not to mention Trevor's rather disgusting interest for his own nose.....
    • Vana herself for treating Eric like crap most of the time.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Why is there no effort to find Maxum-Man?
  • The Woobie: Eric. He has no parents, Maxum Man abandoned him, and everyone in town beats him up (to the point where they made a holiday about it). He isn't even allowed to see his true love, Mandy Struction. You can really sense the writers' sadistic tendencies toward him and Kitty.
