Why It's Inanimate Insanity (In A Good Way)
- The writing in the show is amazing and well done, mostly in the second season.
- Unlike other object shows, it focuses more on the story and characters rather than the challenges and eliminations.
- Many great and likable characters in the show, such as Knife, MePhone4, Bow, Paintbrush (Season 1 & 3), etc.
- The challenges are very fun and interesting to watch, especially in the 2nd season.
- It has some well-made musical numbers (e.g. “Afterlife in the Limelight,” and “Just Like Me”).
- Very well done and talented voice acting from many of the cast members such as Taylor Grodin, Ben Cross, Samuel Thornbury, Hailey Chapman, Alexa Chapman, Justin Chapman, Rheagan Rizio, Kacie Chapman, Mark Katz, Michael Bruzzone, and Adam Katz himself.
- The original composed music that is used in many of the later episodes is very beautiful and nice to listen to and fits well with the series it's being used for.
- We finally get to see Bow alive again in Season 3, but it is revealed that she was a robot at the end of the episode 7.
- The assets for Season 3 have neat designs.
- The first season of the show is very mediocre at the best, with the animation also coming off mostly awful by 3/4 of the entire season.
- The earlier episodes would occasionally have a lot of attempts at creating comedy that would mostly come off either annoying or just plain bad.
- It had a massive cliffhanger for about few years, similar to BFDIA, though this was mostly fixed with the later episodes of the series.
- There are a few unlikable characters.
- Paintbrush got flanderized in Season 2. They take things far too seriously and physically abuse anyone who slacks off, especially Fan. Thankfully, they have learned their consequences by the time before they were eliminated in Alternate Reality Show.
- Nickel arguably suffered flanderzation even worse than Paintbrush. He likes to promote sarcasm and always tries his best to break up Suitcase and Balloon. He also bullies Balloon for the most part.
- Trophy is a bland and forgettable character; he is just a rip-off of Knife.
- The “Keep On Cleaning” musical number can be considered pretty mediocre for some fans.
