About

Johnny Test is an American and Canadian animated series created by Scott Fellows. The show follows the adventures of Johnny Test, a delinquent boy who is often used as a lab rat by his genius twin sisters. These experiments will either help Johnny save the day along with his talking dog Dookie, or be the cause of the problem in the first place. Though the show is infamous online for its generally poor production quality, it has nevertheless garnered an ironic following, much like the series Cory in the House.

History

The show premiered on Kids WB In September 17, 2005, produced by Warner Bros.

On January 20th, 2020, Wildbrain announced the development of a new season/revival of the show, alongside announcing positions made available for the project.[14]

On May 1st, the official channel launched a livestream counting down to the next day, leading to the premiere of the first episode of a new webseries called The Lost Webseries. The episode received mixed reviews with a number of people noting its more lower quality animation compared to previous seasons. This was also made private a few days later. 5 days later, it was reported that Wildbrain and Netflix would collaborate to produce two more seasons of the show alongside an interactive special.
