''Dan Vs.'' was an animated comedy series produced by Creator/FilmRoman that premiered on Creator/TheHub on January 1, 2011, and the first original animated show on that network that's not [[MerchandiseDriven based on an existing property]]. It focuses on a ComedicSociopath named [[CaptainObvious Dan]], who has it ingrained in his mind that every single negative thing that remotely happens in his life is the fault of some random unseen force, from UsefulNotes/NewMexico to the WolfMan. His daily misadventures stem from his desire to provide swift retribution on whatever supposedly caused his problem, much to the chagrin of his best friend [[TheDitz Chris]]. HilarityEnsues. The show was very surprisingly well-received and considered, along with ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', ''Series/FamilyGameNight'' and ''Series/TheHauntingHour'', to be one of the Hub's flagship shows.

Perhaps the best way to describe the show comes from this Internet quote: "It's... like some inversion of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl''." Indeed, it features a lot of the same sort of humor and characterization as that show, only with more cartoonish absurdity and less adult humor (but not none, mainly in the form of BlackComedy).

Though the series is somewhat unknown, reception has been pretty positive for the most part. It received an Emmy in 2013 for "Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program".
