Fan Theories and Fanfiction[]

Controversies[]

In December 2020, YouTube commentator AniMat posted an extremely negative review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Referring to the film as a "Cancer of Animation," he confidently claimed that "the character design looks like it was entirely done by a brain-damaged chimpanzee" and that the film perpetuates the stereotype of animation being a genre exclusively aimed towards children. Multiple videos expressing the same extreme, negative sentiments cemented AniMat's reputation as unnecessarily critical of Cloudy and its sequel (as well as Sony Pictures Animation films as a whole).
