Top 10 Cartoon Characters with the Worst Design

Characters whose designs are either dull, uninspired, awkward looking or just downright ugly. Keep in mind though that a character design isn't the only thing that makes a character good (it's mostly character development), but I still would focus on having a character look as nice and realistic as possible. Also keep in mind that just because a character looks bad doesn't mean the whole show/movie/game/etc. is bad (never judge a book by its cover ya know).
The Top Ten
1 Mouse Fitzgerald - 12 oz. Mouse

These designs make me feel better about my own character designs, even though everyone I know in real life says they're apparently amazing. Eh, I'm very self-conscious about my artwork.

Literally looks like it was drawn by a first-grader. Makes all the designs listed look like artistic masterpieces.

At least Eliza Thornberry was made professionally. He looks like a kid playing around with MS Paint.

2 Horace - The Problem Solverz

All the characters in The Problem Solverz look absolutely hideous! But I personally think Horace is the ugliest of the trio since he looks like a human with an incredibly deformed face.

All the characters from The Problem Solverz have bad designs.

3 Julie De Longpre - Allen Gregory

Her forehead is just way too big. Who thought that was a good design decision for a character?

4 Sparky - Dumbland
5 Angela Anaconda - Angela Anaconda

This show is infamous for giving a generation of kids nightmares because of its horrifying art style, which features human faces on paper bodies. Keep this away from your children at all costs.

6 Peppa Pig - Peppa Pig
7 SwaySway - Breadwinners

At least the booty pic of him isn't showing up, for now...

8 Nick Birch - Big Mouth
9 Buhdeuce - Breadwinners Buhdeuce is one of the main characters in the Nickelodeon show "Breadwinners". He is usually around with his friend "SwaySway", and they are both ducks.

Number five and six go to these disgusting birdbrains. Seriously, they look more like frogs than ducks.

10 Sheep - Sheep in the Big City

The Newcomers

? Ferb Fletcher - Phineas and Ferb Ferbs "Ferb" Fletcher is a British character on the animated television series Phineas and Ferb. The character, voiced by British actor Thomas Sangster, was created by Phineas and Ferb co-founders Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and first appeared in the show's pilot episode, "Rollercoaster."
? Phineas Flynn - Phineas and Ferb Phineas Flynn is one of the protagonists of the animated television series Phineas and Ferb. Voiced by Vincent Martella and created and designed by Dan Povenmire, Phineas first appeared along with the rest of the series' main characters in the pilot episode "Rollercoaster." Phineas, along with his stepbrother... read more
The Contenders
11 Horat - The Nutshack
12 Eliza Thornberry - The Wild Thornberries

Almost all Klasky Csupo characters are hideous, but I personally find Eliza to be the most awkward looking (especially with those little eyes of hers).

I love this show, but you are right about this item. However, Nigel is sexy and smashing.

13 Allen Gregory - Allen Gregory

To me, he just looks like Edna from The Incredibles if she dyed her hair brown. Surprised Pixar never sued Allen Gregory for stealing their character design.

Why would you remind me that this show exists?

14 Alastor - Hazbin Hotel Alastor, also known as The Radio Demon, is a fictional character from an adult animated series Hazbin Hotel.
15 Bessie Higgenbottom - The Mighty B!

She just looks ugly, even for a little girl.

16 Bernie Barges - Watch My Chops

Never heard of this show? Well, I've seen it a couple of times on Nicktoons Network (I personally didn't care for it, though). It's a French show that follows the adventures of a talking dog named Corneil and his dogsitter Bernie, who is the only one who can understand him. He just looks odd with those weird lips of his (it doesn't help that all the other humans in the show have weird lips as well).

17 Sid - Sid the Science Kid

I thought he was a sentient piece of macaroni and cheese when I was a kid.

Since when did 5-year-olds have yellow skin and purple hair?

18 Finn - Adventure Time Finn 'the Human' Mertens is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the American animated television series Adventure Time created by Pendleton Ward.

Yes, I agree with Finn's design. It looks like a four-year-old drew it. I've watched the show several times and, at least in my opinion, the show is extremely pandering and tries way too hard to be trendy and funny.

Never watched this show, but I'm going to be honest, I don't really care for Finn's design. It just looks poor and way too simple.

19 Billy - The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
20 Di Lung - Courage the Cowardly Dog Di Lung is a recurring character and antagonist in the series "Courage the Cowardly Dog".

He often serves as a plot device within the series. At times, he assumes an antagonistic role, such as in the episode "Courage the Fly", where he turns Courage into a fly.

In another instance, in... read more
21 Robin - Teen Titans Go! Robin, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman.
22 Cyborg - Teen Titans Go!
23 Izzy - Total DramaRama
24 Peg - Peg + Cat

Her eyes are too small and far apart mouth and it looks she's balding since we can't see the hair the separates her bangs. Her outfit is cute though. But she looks like an off brand South Park character.

25 Gerald - Sid the Science Kid

Just like how I thought Sid was a piece of macaroni and cheese, I thought Gerald was a pig. Jeez, this show's animation has aged badly.
