I'm getting the strangest feeling that people are going to call these 2 underappreciated and need more attention.
Do you think both shows got a cult following after moving to Qubo or Do people forgot they existed for a reason?

The quality of a show doesn't affect a networks decision of acquiring it or giving it away. In this case it's unlikely Qubo would really pick up both shows merely because they're underrated. Unless if both are up for acquisition and Qubo feels confident in airing them then they probably would acquire both shows.

The only reason why I see people calling them underrated is if people who were young kids when they are originally see it again and have nostalgia for it.

I never watched Scaredy Squirrel, but I watched some of Sidekick, and I remember part of the theme song. Whenever my TV decides to receive my local Qubo station and Sidekick is on, I'll watch it.

Can't exactly speak for Scaredy Squirrel, but I always get the gnawing feeling that Sidekick would be worlds better if the characters were less inept or jerky to each other ...and we were at least given a clue as to why Maxum Man went missing or why he chose Eric. (And Eric could stop getting the short end of the stick 98.9% of the time.)

But I digress. :p

Not really, Sidekicks was....OK in small doses. But sweet Mercy Scardy Squirrel was just flat out unwatchable most of the time.

Thank you for pointing out why Sidekick sucks so dang much and is a shining example alongside Scaredy Squirrel why Canada isn't taken seriously in animation anymore and hasn't/will continue to not be for a long, long..... long time.

I agree with what you said about Sidekick, what annoyed me about it was that they never really explained most of the ideas they were hinting at since the FIRST EPISODE: (Maxum Man disappearing, why Eric became his sidekick out of anyone else, how Eric met the gang and why Vana really hates him so much to wanting him dead etc). So yeah Sidekick was mediocre at best. It could have been better but I’ll admit it’s entertaining and there are some good episodes so I’ll give it that. As for Scaredy Squirrel that to is also mediocre though oddly enough in my opinion seasons 2-3 actually are a lot better in terms of writing and characters, not to say they’re genius levels of comedy but compared to season 1 (which I think is really mediocre) their boarder line good. So yeah both shows are mediocre at best.

To be fair, the OP seemed to have been asking if the shows would be considered underrated by appearing on Qubo, not that they were moving to Qubo because they're considered underrated. That might not make much of a difference, but the idea seems to be what the community says, not the executives.

Anyway, while some may say those two shows are underrated, I imagine there's less of such declaration for them compared with many other animated 2010s shows that aren't considered greatest hits (or even second cuts).

back when the Harvey Weinstein allegations happened i remember saying "well i'm not surprised he's known for being a jerk to certain movies particularly in his treatment in animated movies he acquired and is known for re-cutting live action flims behind director's backs."
They are still airing New Episodes of Max and Ruby???
Most NBCU networks will air movies with limited ads.
