Inspirational, exquisite. Truly a gem for all

After one episode, my life has already taken a different course. Sometimes when my butt goes psycho, I remember what Zack and Deuce do, and I calm down. Honestly, who needs therapy when you got The Day My Butt Went Psycho? I guess your butt when it goes psycho, but that’s about it. I can’t explain enough how much this show has changed me. It should be required in schools, work places, and broadcasted everywhere so that the world may become a better place. I have learned so many life lessons just from one episode, imagine how many more there will be in the others! I have been moved greatly by this show, and I thought it was some stupid kid show at first. Oh boy, how wrong I was! Despite the recurring sexual scenes (Deuce gets at it with Eleanor, Zamn!) this show is very appropriate for every generation and everyone should see it! Toots, cheeks, you name it, they have it! The day my butt went psycho is a true masterpiece for everyone

A true masterpiece of all time, that will be enjoyed for generations to come!

I think it's a very good story with good morals and positive role models. The kid looks like a butt, but with the help of his actual butt, he learns to embrace this and it encourages not judging people based on attractiveness. It also breaks body standards, however the little ones will not understand this message. The shows use of potty humor reminds us that using the bathroom is a universal need and we need to take care of that. The butt is very empowering to both boys and girls, and while it gets a little bit steamy sometimes{;)}, it helps all of us realize that sex is natural and how we can show love to our significant others. This show has helped me in so many ways and encourages me to strive to be the best person I can be. Thank you.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (16 ):

The Day My Butt Went Psycho is eye candy for anyone with a 10-year-old's sense of humor, but it doesn't offer much depth beyond the seemingly endless bowels of toilet talk. This is a world where people and their walking, talking, preposterously oversized derrieres live side by side. Where conversations are rife with cleverly played puns about "explosive" altercations, "crack" fighting, and "cheeky" laughs. Where inanimate objects are reshaped into the now-distinctive image of a stand-alone tush. It's as if someone "cracked" open a kid's doodle pad and turned the contents into a cartoon, complete with gaseous weapons of mass expulsion.

There is some merit to the buddy-comedy quality of the show, as Zack and Deuce come to realize that even though they're separate entities, they're better together than they are apart. Even so, that's not the reason kids will like it. When it comes to this age group, bathroom humor sells, and this outrageously silly series is as full-frontal (or back-frontal) in that department as a kid's cartoon can get. Ultimately this is a classic know-your-kid -- and know-your-own-tolerance level -- scenario. If yours are the type to repeat what they hear on TV and you're not keen on listening to butt and fart puns ad nauseam, you may want to turn their attention elsewhere.
