This is a very ugly show
Where to begin? First off The art style alone is enough to keep anyone with a reasonable sense of taste far far away. And the title what to make of it? "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" sounds like there should be an AND before cricket but I guess they wanted to show just how crazy this show is. And when I say crazy I mean annoying. This show is almost like bread winners with its annoying "can't have the characters slow down or else the kids will flick away syndrome", almost as bad it's better than bread winners with that hyper active can't stop non-sense. But this show's previously mentioned art style is very ugly, The title screen cap on the page before the one this review is on dose not show any of the main characters and if you look at any of the screen caps on other websites you will see that was most likely on purpose because this show is show ugly with it's art style. It's animated in flash which I myself think too many cartoons now a days are animated in flash but the animation itself is fluid enough for standard flash shows but the art style is hideous. Now I saw in some review that this show is like a modern day Ren and Stimpy, there wrong, for starters Ren and Stimpy relied on slap stick and sneaking sly adult humor in occasion and not as much on gross out humor and the art style there was due to limitation and the jokes themselves were well written. Pig goat banana cricket focuses too much on gross out humor for instance in the ear killing theme song they run on a blast of snot. The characters are nothing new and everything unlikeable, bland, easily predictable and yet manage to be annoying. There's not to much else I can say about this show it's just shy of being bread winners bad, shows like this is why many people think Nick is dying. Really bad shows like Johnny test and bread winners are made to appeal to a demographic just to get viewer ship with it "hip and cool modern" concept and leave the writing, animation, characters, and everything else left to utter crap. Show like these are not what the network needs! What Nick needs is a show that can be entertaining and have moments that slow down the pace from time to time, Like Harvey Beaks that is a great show for Nicks line up and can teach morals. Or the new ninja turtles which what teen titans go wishes it was with great directed action and clever humor. As for Pig goat banana cricket I presume it will be canceled to make a time slot for the upcoming and hopefully better Loud house.
