Cartoon Characters Who Devolved Terribly Over Time

egnomac
Characters who started off being likable and good are now annoying and horrible.

The Top Ten

1 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

I like the show but Peter is annoying

I saw this video where Peter tries Red bull for the first time. It's messed up.

Peter whent from being just the idiot father to violent psychopath. - egnomac

2 Glenn Quagmire - Family Guy Glenn Quagmire - Family Guy Glenn Quagmire, often referred to as just Quagmire, is a character from the animated television series Family Guy.

He use to be funny now I can't stand him, he's a total A hole to Brian. - egnomac

He started off funny at first, but he's been flanderized to the point of being a creepy sex maniac.

Honestly Brian deserved everything Quagmire said. Brian used to be the worldy, self educated, voice of reason, w/o much of an overinflated ego. He was talented, soulful, well read, and a patron of the arts and musical theater. His only flaw was his alcoholism. Now he's the poster child of overly opinionated, super liberal, hipster.

I don't get it in the earlier seasons he was okay with Brian and they were friends, but now he's just a total d**k to Brian and I hate it. - rockrockmountain

3 Robin - Teen Titans Go Robin - Teen Titans Go

Robin was not bratty before this terrible cartoon started, I liked Robin better in the original version

Teen Titans Go is so retarded.

I liked the old Teen Titans - EliHbk

To be honest I like TTG, but I hate Robin - Tyler730

4 Ned Flanders - The Simpsons

There's a thing called flanderization

Friendly normal neighbour, is a Christian.
Is still friendly but is now a Fundamental Christian e.g. episode "The Monkey Suit."
Maybe because the writers just decided to kill his wife off.

5 Winslow T. Oddfellow - CatDog Winslow T. Oddfellow - CatDog

He just ruined the show.

He used to be funny. Than he just started harrasing and bullying Cat. - RalphBob

6 SpongeBob SquarePants - SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants - SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

SpongeBob started out being a naive sand lovable main character, whom many people adored and liked. But ever since the movie he became EXTREMELY annoying, Tom Kenny must have gone reverse puberty or something because his voice is so darn squeaky nowadays! It's not even just his voice change, it's just the fact his character went from cute and childlike, to loud and obnoxious. Just look and see, I'm 99% sure Nick keeps him on because of the money he rakes in.

Once he was a 13 year old teenager who worked his ass off. He had clutch. He was a bit slow to react, but in the end, he was smart, and no matter what the job, always got the job done, without the use of tears. As the show went on, he slowly transformed into a more dumber man child with no self control, and cries as a last resort. He even starts to use tears as a method of figuring stuff out. - Canuck101

ALL the characters of this show have become more stupid, mean, and overly exaggerated than they already were. All the qualities that made them so likable are just falling apart. SpongeBob cries at EVERYTHING, Patrick turned into a prick, Squidward isn't that egotistical anymore and is just trying to survive his torture porns, Mr. Krabs fina

He's back to his original self. The original creator came back last year. And the episodes are actually pretty funny

7 Squidward Tentacles - SpongeBob SquarePants Squidward Tentacles - SpongeBob SquarePants Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

I think I'm squidward...

I kind of feel sorry for squidward because of SpongeBob and patrick always bugging througout the series but sometimes he can be very aroggant, concieted and ruthless towards others.

The poster scared me. - ad48

8 Timmy Turner - The Fairly Oddparents Timmy Turner - The Fairly Oddparents Timothy "Timmy" Tiberius Turner is a ten-year old boy who is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the American animated series The Fairly OddParents created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

Timmy did get dumber as the seasons went on, but I personally believe that is not where he completely devolved at.

Timmy used to be a kid with a heart and a caring person in general, he made mistakes and was often impulsive with his actions. But he always apologized sincerely and redeemed his sometimes selfish or bad decisions in the end. He sacrificed himself for his family, friends, and even enemies multiple times and would always be there for them, and he was an easy to sympathize with character. Episodes like Channel Chasers and Abracatasrophe show what I am talking about.

Nowadays Timmy is a selfish, spoiled brat who only cares about himself. He never considers the feelings of others and has no redeeming qualities whatsoever anymore. He's not really stupid, but just a huge jerk. I prefer Pre-Poof Timmy.

I agree, Timmy used to be irresponsible and selfish, but had some level of common sense. He's now almost as dumb as Cosmo from the early seasons.

He just got dumber and dumber when the baby first came out of nowhere.

Why does Timmy have to be such a d**k in the modern episodes?

9 Lisa Simpson - The Simpsons Lisa Simpson - The Simpsons Lisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.

I use to like Lisa but after a few season she's become a preachy know it all. - egnomac

10 Marge Simpson - The Simpsons Marge Simpson - The Simpsons Marjorie Jacqueline "Marge" Simpson is a fictional character in the American animated sitcom The Simpsons and part of the eponymous family.

I swear if she ever does that huge gasp or shriek "NOO! " when Bart or Lisa do something they enjoy, I'm gonna sue Matt Groening!

The Contenders

11 Poof - The Fairly OddParents Poof - The Fairly OddParents

I hate this character he has no personality

Lol your list says went worse over time.I see just a list of worse characters getting more worse.

12 Lil DeVille - Rugrats and All Grown Up Lil DeVille - Rugrats and All Grown Up
13 Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

I don't really think he counts as someone who's devolved over the years. I mean, he was a jerk back then and he's still a jerk now. I do still find him funny too.

Eric just seriously got less funny, like cheating to get in the Special Olympics? - MyRockets345

He harm Kyle, Kenny, Stan, and the love interest to Stan named Wendy.

It's getting stupid, just let me know

14 Mrs Turner - The Fairly OddParents
15 The Overlord - Lego Ninjago
16 Meg - Family Guy

Meg used to be that quiet but nice girl who really tried to fit in and make friends. Now she's a bitter, self-mutilating teen with stalkerish tendencys, and weird bedroom habits.

17 George - An Egg's Guide to Minecraft
18 Phil and Lil's Mom - Rugrats and All Grown Up

In All Grown Up she became really old and started saying really stupid things. She called Kimi a parrot for no reason. - RalphBob

19 Mr. Krabs - SpongeBob Squarepants Mr. Krabs - SpongeBob Squarepants Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He went from being a penny-pinching cheapskate who actually cared for his employees to a greedy money-grubber who only cares about himself. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Before, I liked him better than Plankton. Now I realize that Mr. Krabs is nothing but an ass to Plankton.

Mr. Krabs was always cheap and not the greatest guy around, but now he is just a jerk.

He was a crazy fan of money the whole time
