YMMV / Dave the Barbarian

Go To

  • Cult Classic: Considered one of the funniest Disney Channel shows of all time, got terrific reviews...and then was abruptly canceled after one season.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Twinkle the Marvel Horse. It helps that his voice is based on Christopher Walken.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Pretty much any time that Dave casts aside his fears to protect his sisters, proving that while he may be a lousy barbarian, he's a great brother.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • From "A Pig's Story": Getting shot through space out of your spaceship to land on the enemy's spaceship? Sounds familiar...
    • The episode, "Shrink Rap" has Candy trying on a meat dress.
  • Humor Dissonance: Used in-story by Ned Frischman. The people of the past have never heard his incredibly lame futuristic "why did the chicken cross the road"-class jokes and therefore considers him to be the funniest man in existence.
  • Superlative Dubbing: The LaTAM dub is considered superior to the original dub with Ariel Cister giving Dave a more energetic yet effeminate performance, Pablo Gandolfo being a hammy, fast-talking Chuckles and Ricardo Lani as the narrator who hams it up Up to Eleven as if were an Epic tale.
