[[http://blip.tv/dark-side-of-the-toon Dark Side of the Toon]] is an [[WebOriginal Internet]] review show, similar to the shows on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. But, [[YesExceptNo instead of reviewing nostalgic movies]] to see just how bad they were, the host, Tooch, has taken it upon himself to review [[WesternAnimation animated tv shows]] that have come out since 2010, in an attempt to introduce us to a side of animation that we may not be familiar with.

* ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades''

!!This show provides discusses and provides examples of:
* BigNo
-->'''Tooch:''' Sorry little guy, your love for Rarity is...nothing more than a mere running gag.
-->'''Spike:''' NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
* CharacterDevelopment: Rarity starts the series as "fairly useless," but eventually "develops as a character and makes for some great comedy."
* CutAwayGag: Tooch gives ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' a run for their money.
* DarkIsNotEvil: The show's title. Here "dark" refers to unknown, rather than bad.
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil
-->'''Tooch:''' I will never support piracy on this show, if only because the stuff I'm reviewing is brand new and needs support. If no one supports it, it might not get a second season. Except...[[{{Metaphorgotten}} the shows that are bad, probably don't deserve a second season]]..."
* ExecutiveMeddling: The only reason Princess Celestia is a "princess", rather than a queen.
* {{Expy}}: "Kick's obnoxious older brother [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Terrence]] - I mean Brad."
* FlatWhat: Tooch's initial reaction to ''Friendship Is Magic''.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' has "violence of near WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry levels."
* HeyItsThatVoice: "I know that voice! It's [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown Danny Cooksey]]!!"
* LiteralMetaphor: [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic The magical]] PowerOfFriendship can make for some "powerful pony juju."
* LoserProtagonist: "Huh, Butch Hartman must really love to torture his characters."
* MerchandiseDriven
* NonSequitur: Tooch introduces each episode with some random comment about some [[TheNineties 1990s]] animated show.
* NostalgiaFilter: Tooch believes that a lot of 1990s kids have their nostalgia goggles on way too tight, refusing to acknowledge anything animated after 2005 as any good.
* RealMenWearPink: ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has gotten his most enthusiastic recommendation.
** He also talks a bit about the need for "girls' shows" that boys can enjoy in his ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' review.
* StraightGay: Tooch mentions having a boyfriend in the ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' episode. In fact, the long hiatus was caused by Tooch's flying to visit him in Wales for two months.
