I just love that show for its dark and surreal humor and nightmare fuel. There's even some episodes that could even frighten young children (in a good way). It's one of these shows were it not only entertains and challenges younger audience at the same time, but also doesn't treat them like idiots or fools.

Only for the first three seasons. I stopped watching it shortly before Season 4 ended when I realized the show is no longer as good as it used to be. That's when the show started to rely more on gross-out and shock humor, and as well as the characters suffering massive flanderization. I am glad that I gave up on it a very long time ago because it got even worse from there.

Shows I Didn't Like

The main character isn't interesting. Most of the show's writing are weak. It heavily relies too much on lazily done pop culture references.

Just why the hell did I still watch it until when I was eight years old, as opposed to five?

I'm really not a big fan of this show. It's mostly due to Dee Dee being annoying and not giving Dexter any personal space or privacy. They do sometimes get along and can be cooperative. But that happens occasionally from what I remember. The logic, writing-wise, don't always make a lot of sense, either. I also don't like the fact that Dexter is always the butt monkey or a lot of times ends up getting the axe. He can sometimes be real delusional, despite being a boy genius. The parents, mostly the Dad, can be real dumb and oblivious at times. But at other times, they can be good, funny, or normal.

I honestly watched very little of the post-Tartakovksy seasons, as I've already had enough of the show at the time. And that's when the series jumped the shark, from what I heard.

I used to be very negative about the show. But when I looked up the episodes of the first two seasons and looking back at it from my memory, they weren't as bad as I remembered it. Yeah, Dee Dee was annoying and some of the endings were just stupid. But there were some episodes that I do like. It's mostly the ones where Dexter and Dee Dee cooperate with each other and as well as spend time with their parents.

As of yet, I haven't checked out the banned episode, "Rude Removal", which turned out to be one of the series' best episodes by the fans. I'll probably check it out when the mood strikes me.

Rugrats (1990)
My review here:

But be warned, though; it is a negative review. Yes, I do find that show overrated. I am very sorry for those of you who liked it.

Yu-Gi-Oh! (2000)
This is one show that I regret watching. One of the reasons why I watched was because of its rising popularity. And the trading cards were fun to collect, but they are a big waste of hard-earned money. Well, curiosity killed the cat.

Anyways, the 4Kids voice dubbing was subpar and some are even grating *cough* Joey Wheeler *cough*. The dialogue and writing are childish and uninspired. And the edits and censorship are just unsubtle, illogical, and questionable; some are even just plain stupid and unnecessary. In regards to both the 4Kids and Japanese versions, there are filler story arcs/seasons that has little to no connection to the main story, and they're just a waste of time. Unlike Pokémon, which is for children, this show is mostly for teenagers due to violence, including references of death and killing, and sexuality. That explains why the term "Shadow Realm" is used too often, and also death being replaced with softer tones such as being kidnapped (it's like the practice of ransoming doesn't exist).

About 4Kids, they are one of the worst companies to come in existence and a disgrace to anime fans. It would have been in better hands if it went to FUNimation. That's what really should have happened to begin with. At least the censorship will be minimal and the uncut versions would have been available on DVD. They also show more respect for their consumers than 4Kids. After 20 years in the television industry (1992-2012), 4Kids is now called 4Licensing Corporation. So that means they are finished and can no longer bowdlerize and sugarcoat anime. Good riddance.

I didn't find the sketches worth to write home about, save for a few like Blockblister and Mr. Old Man.

I thought the show was hit and miss, mostly due to its tired and forced plot/writing routine for some of the episodes, and its inconsistent continuity throughout the series. I also didn't have much fond memories of it compared to SpongeBob. I stopped watching it, like, around season 5. But it was season 6 that the show really jumped the shark, according to most fans. The show really should have ended with "Channel Chasers". That would have been the appropriate series finale for it.

I mostly watched the first two seasons. It does have an interesting idea and some wacky characters. But I would have preferred the show if it was animated. I mean, there's some cartoon gimmicks, and some of the FX and props look cheap. Unless if it's done right (i.e. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), cartoon antics in live-action movies and shows don't always mix well.

Pokémon (1997)
It's mostly the Kanto Region and some of the Orange Islands episodes that I remember watching the most. Even though it was formally dubbed by 4Kids, the voice acting and the censorship editing aren't as bad compared to the later shows they dubbed.

I only remember watching the first three seasons. And for some reason, I stopped watching at the beginning of Season 4. I think around that time, I was more into shows like SpongeBob SquarePants and The Fairly OddParents.
