YMMV / Wayside

  • Broken Base: To some, the animated series is So Okay, It's Average, others think it's very good while many criticize for being a poor man's animated adaptation of the book.
    • What many people dislike about it is that it takes too many liberties to be a faithful adaptation but isn't different enough to be its own thing. It's also filled with Canadian cartoon clichés, which many people...don't really like.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
    • The soundtrack and BGM could be this.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Any of the minor students, mostly Jenny and Shari.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Almost every episode.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Of all the 30+ characters in the book series, only a small handful get lines or even appear.
  • The Woobie: The main cast are this at times, most noticeably Todd.
