Worst Movies Based on Cartoons

The Top TenXW

1The Last Airbender

I haven't seen the whole movie. I have seen clips of it, and the acting is horrible. Also, this movie is racist because they choose white kids to play Asian-inspired roles. The show is the complete opposite of this crap. - thunderstar1124

I actually think the look of the movie has what a good adaptation of this movie would have, just no comedy and logic, but the visuals are nice.

It doesn't matter if love or hate the show. This is a horrible movie either way. If you had not seen it your lucky cause you never had to feel the pain of watching this like I had so don't see it.

I only could watch half of this it's was so bad I couldn't even finish it horrible compared to the show. Any avatar show hater you need to be hating on this not the show

2Dragonball: Evolution

The last airbender was something similar like the show, for example aang is a kid, but THIS? IS THE MOST CRAPPIEST ADAPTATION OF A CARTOON/ANIME THAT EXIST the last airbender is only hated by the nostalgia critic

This game doesn't even relate to dbz

If someone's mother who listened to her kid watching cartoons in the other room wrote a movie, this would be it.

I think this is worst then the last airbender

3Scooby-Doo: The Movie

This movie is bad I mean really bad ok it's not the worst kids film it's not the worst movie of all time or anything but it's definitely one of the worst movies ever based on an cartoon and it should be number 1! It's not watchable for long time fans of the show it has again it has a dozen pointless jokes a dozen pointless catchphrases and just uh I don't know it's if you like good for you because for even for myself it's not a god awful film it's just doesn't respect the source material of the cartoon the same with a lot of this films based on cartoons they just don't stick to the source material they just pretty much they just change the formula and that really pisses me off and a lot of fans of the cartoon, I mean Scooby doo or scooby doo 1 and 2 actually they made a sequel and surprisingly better I mean it's longer it's more colorful and more charming and there's more action and the CG got a little better this time but still was cheesy I mean did I forget to mention the effects in ...more

This movie wasn't bad. The casting was good, but I hope if they make a new one to spend more money on it so it would look better. Presentation is everything and these movies look a little cheaply made. Scooby Door is a great classic and when doing a movie it needs to succeed expectations that the cartoon does.

The guy they go to play Shaggy was the only good casting in this movie, the rest of the people they got to play the other characters were downright horrible, also some really crappy CGI, I mean COME ON, SUPERMAN 4 HAD BETTER EFFECTS THAN YOU! Even by early 2000's standards they were bad, also what was up with those creatures? The Scooby Doo T.V. shows made it clear that there's no such thing as supernatural elements in their world, every monster had a scientific explanation, BUUUT for some reason not here, they're just real monsters that just pop out of nowhere and suck out people's souls, what the hell is this movie at that point?

This is not scooby doo this is garbage

4Mr. Magoo

This is my least favorite movie based on one of my favorite cartoons ever made.

I need transformers 2007 on this list.

5Alvin and the Chipmunks

Hey. That cover wasn't so bad. At least it didn't talk about raunchy stuff. Now that would've been bad! We're thankful that never happened.

Oh that beautiful Led Zeppelin song, wasted!

Not terrible, I liked it as a kid and I think I'll go see the new one for nostalgic reasons.

6Masters of the Universe

I haven't seen this but I bet its terrible

I haven't seen this but I bet its crap!...

7Yogi Bear

Dan Akryod and Justin Tiberlake are merely doing a Yogi Bear and Boo Boo impersonation. - egnomac

Doctor claw never shows his face!

Rupert Everett was the worst possible choice for Dr. Claw to ever exist, and Mathew Brodrick was a horrible Inspector Gadget

9A Fairly Odd Summer

No one likes these movies, nick is just making them when they get bored, why? You have a crap ton of other shows to make movies off of and they're just continuing to make these godawful fairly odd parents movies, it would be perfectly fine if they were animated, it would probably get SOME people watching it, but no, they just make these stupid live action movies with horrible cgi fairies that no one watches, also some really crappy casting, Drake Bell has always acted like he's just phoning it in when he does these movies, Trina from victorious has proven in these movies that she is one of the worst actresses of this decade, Cosmo in these movies sounds like he's TRYING to irritate you. Wanda is just like she is in the show ever since poof came along, the fun killer, Poof is still the godawfully annoying abomination that has been in every episode since fairly odd baby. Jorgen is the worst looking fairy in these movies, he looks so fake, granted so do the others, but he is the worst ...more

Timmy Turner became a cgi fairy and he looks like his kid form and cosmo and Wanda will be with some spoiled rich kids... Let that sink in for a moment

In the show Timmy is 10 years old. Drake Bell is like 25! Timmy looks like a 25 year old!

One of the worst things I have ever seen.

10Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

The first 2 were much better than this garbage. They didn't follow much plot, and basically sung pop songs the whole time. - Turkeyasylum

They just farted! Isn't that funny?

The Contenders

11The Flintstones

What I really don't understand is how Barney got the highest score on the test, I've seen a few episodes of the flintstones so I know the characters, and Barney would clearly not be the smartest guy there

Sucks like crap it should number 1 on the list!

I can't believe they would cast that fat hog Rosie O'Donnell as Betty Rubble

12Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Sorry but this movie destroyed the franchise, the movies should have been based more on the show.

Love it love it want more of it but its unwatchable.

They should be embarrassed making a classic like this.

13The Smurfs
14Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

The Worst alvin and the chipmunk movie.

15Underdog

I liked this movie. Watched it A LOT as a kid, and the cartoon as well.

I didn't even know that there was a live action movie based on this!

19Howard the Duck

I voted this as the worst live action remake... But I now think I was too harsh. George Lucas' Howard the Duck is as nowhere near as tasteless as Jem & the Holograms or Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, but it's still not a good movie. It's also a bit of a stretch since it's a remake of a comic, but I'm still making an exception for it and will even go out on a limb and say this is among the worst films George Lucas has ever produced.

By 4 minutes in, you'll have seen a disturbing animatronic duck reading a PlayBoy magazine portraying scantly clad ducks. If that doesn't creep you out, you have more tolerance than the Angry Video Game Nerd. And just to top off the creepiness factor, let's have this duck sleep with a human woman. "Like they say, doll, love's strange. We could always give it a try." No! Just, no! Don't give it a try. That's just... BLEGH!

We watch Howard lumber around his home planet, and then get slapped onto the pavements of earth with a ...more

20Jem and the Holograms

Just when you thought there would never be an adaptation worse than Last Airbender, along comes this, even if you're like me and you've never seen the show this movie is still horrible, it took a sort of sci-if musical cartoon and completely grounded it in reality, why the hell would you do that!?! It's like making a live action Danny Phantom movie, completely removing the ghost stuff, and just having him dress up in the black suit and put on a grey wig and he just goes out fighting other people dressed up as ghosts. And what did they do to Sinergey? Why would you take a gigantic supercomputer and make it look like some kind of Eve knock-off? And why did they have to keep cutting to all those pointless YouTube videos? It was incredibly annoying. Also, why did they modernize the movie? What Jem fan would ever in a million years want to see all the characters talking about Twitter or Instagram? But you wanna know what the worst part about this movie is? The ending, because before the ...more
