In all reality, it might be the least funny animated show I've ever seen.
July 2, 2018
Allen Gregory is a character in desperate need of a foil and most of the first episode is spent showing us just how insanely quirky and weird he is, without allowing any of the other characters to be fleshed out.

The absurdity of an omniscient sophisticate still in short pants carries plenty of comedic potential.

Allen Gregory does its job so well that halfway through the first episode, you're rooting for the school bully to kick our hero's scrawny behind.

So pleased with itself, it doesn't seem concerned about pleasing us.

Yes, it's funny to see the little egghead blow his lid and be downright rude to people. The problem is, he's belligerent to too many people, especially within his family structure.

The show strains to be worthy of more than just the 10-minute-short treatment, and is therefore filled in with some unfunny and repetitive material.
October 30, 2011
The opening episode has an overall creepy feel to it.

Allen Gregory is Richie Rich without the nice gene. We take malicious delight in watching him get taken down a peg or two.

It's hard to see where Allen Gregory will go for fresh laughs, and in the premiere there were already signs of creative crisis.
October 30, 2011
Deeply absurd but only fitfully funny, Allen will probably be loved by a small group of people, but not especially liked by many.
October 30, 2011
Perhaps Allen Gregory's arrogance is meant to be entertaining, but I just found it mostly insufferable.
October 30, 2011
Once in a while, he sounds like a little boy. This much works, but whether it can sustain a series is a fair question.

Allen Gregory looks promising but then you see the show and realize quickly it's the same jokes repeated ad nauseum.
October 30, 2011
Vastly unpleasant to watch.

Looks like they'll need to go back to the drawing board.
October 30, 2011
It's perplexing how the writers came to the conclusion that any of this would be funny.

Gross, ugly, vicious and stupid - Allen is all of that, to be sure. But funny? Too rarely to matter.
October 30, 2011
The main character is incredibly unlikable, as are the supporting characters.

I doubt that Allen Gregory is going to be much of a hit, simply because the character is so aggressively cold and odd.
