YMMV / The Mighty B!

Go To

  • Adorkable: Bessie's smart and goofy attitude has granted her a fanbase, even if it's not for everybody. It doesn't hurt that she has a cute lispy voice.
  • Awesome Music:
    • The theme song (despite its hard-to-hear lyrics), "Pretty Pretty Princess", and "Catatonic".
    • "Cause I'm Running with the Rainbow Unicorns... don't you wish you were ME!?"
  • Base-Breaking Character: Bessie. An Adorkable little girl with Motor Mouth tendencies who is merely unaware of how much destruction she causes? Or a selfish, Spoiled Brat who treats all of her peers like garbage and needs to come out on top no matter what?

  • Bizarro Episode: The episode "Catatonic" is easily the weirdest episode of the series... and considering what the rest of the show is like, that's saying a lot!
  • Cargo Ship: Penny and Joey, the animatronic Kangaroo from Jump 'n Joey's. She truly believes the robotic marsupial is alive.
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Portia. Socks with sandals? Really?
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • This wouldn't have been the last time Nickelodeon had a cartoon that involved a pig-tailed, bug-themed superhero girl , even if Nickelodeon screwed over said series and had it move to Netflix. Ironically, Bessie's fantasy vision of being the titular superhero is bee-themed, considering the fact that Marinette's rival Chloé gets the Bee Miraculous in Season 2.
    • When Bessie says "Think positive, Penny" in the episode "Body Rockers", another Amy Poehler character says the same line too!

    • This line involving the episode of Happy's mother comes to mind these days:
  • Moment of Awesome: In "Gorillas in the Midst", when Bessie dresses up as Ben to complete The Gorillas training course. She has to jump hurdles, run through loop-de-loops, jump hurdles on a loop, fight a lion to the death on a platform raised above a pit of hungry crocodiles using super kung-fu, tame a rolling boulder, and land in two bear traps before the finish. What a badass.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Honeybees don't (slow motion) FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART!"
  • Moe: Bessie, Oh Adorkable, goofy, cheerful Bessie...
  • Signature Scene: Portia's epic freak out at the end of "So Happy Together" when she discovers her dog is actually a rat.
  • Squick: The show can be pretty gross sometimes. There are multiple jokes about eating boogers for example.

  • Suspiciously Similar Song: "Bad to the Bee" strongly resembles Link Wray's "Rumble".
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The Girl Scout premise is actually quite unique, with the idea of Bessie gaining a new badge every episode helping to keep the show episodic. However, the premise usually takes a backseat to allow for complete insanity.
  • The Woobie: Bessie. Even you find her somewhat annoying, it's still easy to feel sorry for her since she constantly gets beaten down by her enemies, much to their amusement. Fortunately, she does end out on top for the most part.
