Most Annoying Cartoon Cliches


The Top Ten

1 Too much satire & cultural references

Adult cartoons were a perfect example of adding reference to medias.

2 Over done plots
3 The winners keep winning and the losers keep losing
4 Dumb characters

Cosmo, Timmy's Dad, Patrick, Lindsay, Stimpy, Timmy's Mom. - PatrickStar3

The Dumbest people I know are Fanboy Buhdeuce Patrick and SpongeBob

5 Cute & funny sidekicks

Those sidekicks who are only created to be the comic relive or who are comply useless in every situation. - egnomac

6 Characters who impersonate other actors and characters

One character who comes to mind when I think of this is Babs Bunny from Tiny Toon Adventures who always does impressions of other actors and comedians like Groucho Marx they start off funny but becomes really annoying and tiring over time. - egnomac

7 The main character being better than everyone else and always succeed just because their the star of the show

Nickolodeon in a nutshell

8 It was all a dream sequence
9 Characters never aging

Here are some that don't age that will be Scaredy and Sway Sway

The problem is, they suffer from horrifying immortality... How come the Simpsons never age when you need them?

20 years, and Ash is still 10 years old. - FluffyBanana

The Simpsons, The Fairly OddParents, SpongeBob SquarePants. - PatrickStar3

10 Body switching

This concept has been done to death. - egnomac

Freaky Friday this is not. Quit this madness.

The Contenders

11 The dumb dad and the mom who's too good for him

Like in The Fairly OddParents. - Fandomstuck

12 Talking dogs

Examples: Scooby doo

And Jake, Snoopy, Sparky, Scrappy, Spike and many more like too many. - PatrickStar3

13 Celebrities popping out of nowhere

Parry Gripp and Kelly Clarkson in Phineas and Ferb, and Gordon Ramsay in TDA

14 Character speaking a different language but there are no subtitles

Examples are Schnitzel from Chowder and Coco from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

And lady rainicorn from adventure time - Lunala

15 Four finger characters

For example: The Loud House, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, etc. - Fandomstuck

They do this to make a larger profit, though. - Mariomaster63

16 Good guys vs bad guys
17 Characters wearing the same clothes

For examples: The characters of The Loud House, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, etc.

This creeps me out when animals wear clothes... 😨 - Fandomstuck

18 Overuse of surrealism
19 Gross-out humor
20 We're suddenly a sitcom
21 Noticeable innuendos
22 Evil comic relief trio
23 Brooding, edgy androgynous villain
24 Tiny, annoying comic relief
25 Villainous hyenas
26 Heroic lions
27 Heroic honey badgers

Bunga does not deserve to be heroic. He's more of a villain than a hero in my opinion. Plus he is annoying.

28 Only cute animals are good guys, and only ugly or vicious animals are villains

This is such a repetitive and annoying trope, to be honest with you.

29 Everyone starts laughing at the end of an episode

Peppa Pig. - PatrickStar3
