Y-Guy has received positive reviews. In fact, fans of the show saved the show. To hear about this, go to the show's history. In 2005, IGN put Y-Guy on 30th on it's 100 Greatest Animated Series of All Time list. Many people have featured Y-Guy in other shows like SuperSaiyanKirby Adventures, The Homestar Runner and Pac-Man 64 show, etc. When Y-Guy ended, many fans wanted the show to return, so the creators made a revival series.
Y-Guy's popularity started to increase during 2003, so IAmBagel and Invader Rob decided that they should make a feature film based on the series, titled "Y-Guy: The Movie" which was released on June 9, 2006. The film centers around Professor Carrotstein quitting being a villain and decides to get a new start in life, however, he then comes up with a brilliant plan: Trick Y-Guy and the gang into collecting the 5 World Elements, which he will use to power a giant robot called "The Beast". However, once they all realize it's a trick, it's up to Y-Guy and the gang to save the world. The film was a box office success and was also received positive reviews from fans and critics.
Due to the film's popularity, the crew immediately began work on "Y-Guy: The Movie 2: Rise of The Carrot" , which was originally going to have a theatrical release, but due to some production issues, the film went straight-to-DVD on October 3, 2008. The film centers around Professor Carrotstein teaming with Y-Guy's other enemies to set-up mind-control towers around the world, and now it's up to Y-Guy and the gang to stop them. It received mixed reviews from fans.
In Early 2010, it was announced that a new Y-Guy film was going to be released in late 2012, but was pushed to Summer 2013. The film, titled "Y-Guy: Back in Time", follows Y-Guy and the gang, as they are sent into the past due to a freak accdient. While in the past, they meet their ancestors. They soon discover weird portals appearing in town, and when Mango enters one, he discovers that the portals lead to the year 2050, where Carrotstein is ruler of the universe, and they learn that he plans to enslave everybody from the past. So now Y-Guy and the gang must team up with their ancestors to save the past. It is scheduled for release on June 7, 2013.
