In all honesty, I actually enjoy some of their shows.
"Adventure Time" is weird, but that's what makes it so fun. It's like a surreal mixture of "Dungeons and Dragons", "Super Mario Bros.", and those old Feischer cartoons from the 30's. You have no idea what to expect, thus it never falls to predictable cliches. The characters are also likable and the setting becomes more interesting the more you explore it.
"Regular Show" is weird too, but in a different way. It takes itself more seriously and is more relaxed in tone compared to "Adventure Time". The characters seem one-note at first, but the show explores their backgrounds and goes into detail on why they behave the way they do. They even manage to throw a moral or two into some episodes, which is also nice. If anything, the show feels like the 90's love-child of "Beavis and Butthead" and "Rocko's Modern Life" with elements from "Wayne's World" and "Homestar Runner".
I'm shocked at the amount of people who heavily criticize these shows for being "weird". Normally, I wouldn't mind them (considering one's personal tastes and all), but a lot of these complainers grew up with shows like "Ren and Stimpy", "The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat", and "The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog"; shows which were oftentimes (in my opinion) weirder than what's currently airing nowadays. I can't help but think that some of these complainers have their nostalgia goggles on too tight.
