On the day the show released, Redditor FakePhillyCheezStake made a post to /r/BetterCallSaul titled, “Unpopular Opinion: Better Call Saul Presents: Slippin’ Jimmy is better than both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul,” writing, “Yes, BB and BCS are dramatic masterpieces, but Jimmy has a sentient sled in this show. That seals it in my book,” gaining over 250 upvotes in three weeks. On May 24th, Blubble Blabber gave the show a positive review of 8/10, writing:
Don’t expect any unearthings of new details about Saul Goodman’s sordid history, Slippin’ Jimmy is just a straight good time that would do just as well standing on it’s own as it’s own ongoing series. Much in the same way Young Sheldon sheds new light on Sheldon’s character in Big Bang Theory, this animated franchise does much of the same, though isn’t expected to be taken quite as seriously.
