    Dilweed & Fungus are the main protagonists of the Canadian animated TV series Numb Chucks. They are a duo of astoundingly moronic, impossibly dumb woodchucks who love to do kung fu and try to use their martial arts skills to fight evil, although both of them are unbelievably, incredibly inept at both. Dilweed is voiced by Terry McGurrin, while Fungus is voiced by Lou Attia in season 1 and Cory Doran in season 2.

    Why They Should Go Numb

    1. To start you off, they are supposed to be the heroes, but feel more like incompetent villains.
      • They also have criminal roles such as stealing Buford's couch, attacking a new, innocent neighbor Dr. Sinister, or trashing Hooves' house.
      • In "Spit-Uation Critical", they make Buford waste all his spit.
      • In "Artificial Dumbness", they don't seem to care that Robo-Morris is torturing the townsfolk.
      • Their kung fu skills are meant to rescue people, but in most episodes, their kung fu skills cause chaos.
    2. Speaking of which, they mainly bother Hooves and Buford, they are the reason why the latter is a jerk.
    3. They generally don't learn from their mistakes and get even worse, especially in the second season.
    4. Their actors Terry McGurrin, Lou Attia and Cory Doran did atrocious jobs voicing them, as they either sound too quiet or scream too loudly.
    5. Their designs are cheesy, below-average, and ugly, as they hardly look like woodchucks and look more like beavers with no flat tails. They also look very reminiscent of the character designs from Almost Naked Animals.
      • Adding onto that, their designs are rip-offs of Norbert and Daggett from The Angry Beavers, and it doesn't help that they have somewhat similar names.
    6. Their names are too weird bordering on laughable to make you wonder, what were they thinking when they named them?
    7. They have even twerked in a few episodes.
    8. They never get punished for their actions, making them Karma Houdinis.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. The two are shown to care about each other and often go to great lengths to defend themselves. They also have good intentions with protecting Ding-a-Ling Springs from harm.
    2. They can be sympathetic/funny at times, mostly in season 1, as they aren't as obnoxious as in season 2.
    3. There are some episodes where Dilweed and Fungus act as heroes, although those where they did take responsibility for their actions can be counted on the fingers of one hand.
    4. There are a few episodes where they are more tolerable than usual, such as "Situation Evacuation", "Get Him to Ding-a-Ling Springs", "Age of Ignorance", "Night Hooves", "Chuck Be a Lady", "Enter the Sheep" and the series finale "O Evil Tree, O Evil Tree".
