Top 10 Cartoon Characters We Feel Most Sorry For

Cartoon characters who most deserve our pity characters who are annoyed, abused or treated like dirt by other characters.
The Top Ten
1 Squidward Tentacles (Spongebob Squarepants) Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He's abused by everyone when trying to put in effort (actually got thrown in a volcano), failed to move away from Patrick & SpongeBob (he actually tried in an episode), FORCED to work in a fast food place that's ran by his neighbors & a greedy crab that doesn't care about his own daughter, yet STILL doesn't retaliate. Squidward is treated like Satan except by his annoying neighbors, and still has a hatebase. Mistreated, abused, miserable.

Most people hate Squidward put consider these facts, He works a job he doesn't like, his music career never took off, his boss doesn't respect him and to make matters even worst he has to live next door to the most annoying people on the planet who have nothing better to do then annoy him most if not all the time he should just get a restring order against them.

Squidward was an ass in the old episodes, but now he's one of the very few characters on the show that actually deserves sympathy. He has a job he hates, he's underpaid and disrespected by his douchebag boss and he has to constantly put up with two idiots who do nothing but annoy the hell out of him, hell, one of them stalks him. I wanna give him a hug more often than not.

If there's an enemy in SpongeBob, then its definitely not this guy. he's more like the guy in the crossfire. even though SpongeBob loves him he gets the worst end of everything even when trying to help. he needs to find a talent, "and have an attitude for, gratitude".

2 Meg Griffin (Family Guy) Megan "Meg" Griffin is a character from the animated television series Family Guy, voiced initially by Lacey Chabert, thereafter by Mila Kunis.

It sucks being Meg living with a family that always treat her like crap they make fun of her, abuse her and Peter constantly farts on her every chance he gets, there was an actual time when the family actually cared for her but over the years they stopped caring.

The whole Meg hating gag is getting old. Plus her own parents don't even like her. Peter once shot her with a gun, onpurpos, and they don't even remember her own birthday!

I want to see an episode when Meg Griffin gets her parents in prison for life!

She at least is more intelligent than his whole and mediocre family.

3 Chuckie (Rugrats)

Really, his life has to be hard? He has to be afraid of everything? He has to be tormented by the evil Angelica? His mother had to leave him when he was a little baby? Come on Klasky Csupo, stop picking on an innocent two year old!

His life isn't THAT hard. But still, imagine being him for one day.

Bad stuff always happens to him

The poor kid never gets a break

4 Sheldon J. Plankton (SpongeBob SquarePants) Sheldon James Plankton, or simply Plankton, is a character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Dude, forget blasting out of the restaurant, Plankton is an emotionally abused, pathetic, occasionally suicidal bum who can barely keep his business afloat. He is constantly mocked and hurt by someone who used to be his friend, and now lives with a fake wife that constantly points out what a failure at life he is.

Let's just forget all of the evil things he has done, Mr Krabs has to blast him out of his restaraunt.

Shut up! Go to bed! Get in the tub! Go to boating school! Eat a snack! Play a game!

He Always Has to Be Tortured By Krabs.

5 Jonathan (Rugrats)

When he's not being screamed at by his demanding boss Charlotte he's stuck looking out for her bratty kid Angelica.

Jonathan Should Just Tell Charlotte He Quits. Or Just Tell Her to Shut Up.

6 Cody (Total Drama World Tour)

Boy, did Cody have an uneasy time in World Tour. He was continuously stalked and harassed by Sierra, and had many of his stuff touched in the process. I mean, I get it, he stalked Gwen two seasons prior, but Sierra took things to a new low. Sierra never left him alone to the point where he voted for her in every single elimination ceremony he was in. This type of thing is the reason Tord left Eddsworld, THIS. All the boy wants is some privacy. PLEASE LEAVE HIM ALONE.

I feel sorry for cody because he keeps on getting hurt (episode 1 3 4 5 6 7 8)

Sierra. Enough said

7 Dexter (Dexter's Laboratory) Dexter is a fictional character and the titular protagonist of the Cartoon Network animated series, Dexter's Laboratory.

In almost every episode Dee Dee breaks into his lab and destroys most of his invention.

He's so funny and if he's so smart DeeDee always win

8 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.

Believe me, he's a 10-year-old who often gets into dangerous situation in a cartoonish ways. How does the show portrayed child abuse like that? I never seen child abuse in my life and I think this is gone too far enough. Getting eaten by an animal (e.g. piranhas, bears, crocs, etc.), getting crushed by an object (e.g. anvils, pianos, etc.), getting killed by someone (Francis, Vicky, Crocker, etc.), etc. I'm glad the show has toned down a bit nowadays (well, almost) but I don't think you should see a REAL kid getting killed by someone or something in a cartoonish ways. I like the show, but the writers have gone too far.

He get’s abused by his babysitter and is ignored by his dumb parents. Cosmo and Wanda take way better care of Timmy than those jerks.

He's been abused ever since Obama became president, Justin Bieber Stepped into the spotlight, and Annoying Orange Arrived.

Even with his fairies he has a hard life

9 Courage (Courage the Cowardly Dog) Courage is a fictional character and the titular protagonist of the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Eustace is always picking on him!

10 Kif (Futurama)

He becomes Zapp Brannigins scapegoat anytime he screws up always gets treated like dirt.

Zap is such a idiot and Kif is Amy's boyfriend and he's a good one.

The Contenders
11 Butters Stotch (South Park) Leopold "Butters" Stotch is a fictional character in the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone and loosely based on co-producer Eric Stough.

His parents are the worst parents I have seen, at least, in a cartoon, they needed to be arrested literal. Butters needs better parents!

I feel really bad for Butters. His parents are horrible to him and always grounding him for no reason.

His parents always have to abuse him.

Butters' Parents Should Be Fed to The Sharks or Be Forced to Watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians!

12 Heinz Doofenshmirtz (Phineas and Ferb)

He was abused by his parents

This Guy Had a Terrible Childhood.

13 Harley Quinn (Batman: The Animated Series)

She's loyal to the Joker, but he's all take and no give.

14 Lindsay (Total Drama Island)

Since the beginning Lindsay has always did what ever Heather demands from her and all she gets in return is nothing but crap, Heather later gets her eliminated.

She doesn’t even realize when she’s getting taken advantage of.

15 Wile E. Coyote (Looney Tunes)

I want acnes favorite customer to win just once, but then again that would make him look worse than ever.

Why does he keep shopping from ACME if all the products keep backfiring on him.

He keeps chasing that stupid ostrich!

How many times did he git backfired?

16 Double D (Ed, Edd n Eddy)
17 Shego (Kim Possible) Shego is a fictional character from Disney's animated television series Kim Possible, voiced by Nicole Sullivan.

How can she stand being Dr. Drakken's sidekick she's way better at being a villain then him and most all of the other villain characters she actually took over the world in A Sitch in Time but since then she just puts up with Drakkens stupidity and willingly follows his orders.

You should have Ezekiel (Total Drama Island) as #1! He's been abused to the point to not even not knowing himself!

18 Miguel Santos (Maya & Miguel)

Maya is always dragging Miguel against his will into helping with her stupid plans which never work.

He needs to put his foot down

19 Rocko (Rocko's Modern Life) Rocko is the eponymous fictional character of the cartoon Rocko's Modern Life and the comic book series of the same name.

I'm highly convinced that the show's theme song intro sequence was actually him having a nightmare about the sheer amount of abuse he's suffered throughout his life. And that's just the BEGINNING of the show.

Poor Rocko… :,( I hate all the characters who picked on Rocko! Especially *cough cough* Ed Bighead! *cough cough* I hope Rocko gets his revenge someday.

Yep, it's pretty sad, but I know some people actually have it worse...

Rocko is supposed to be a funny show.

20 Hector (Dragon Hunters)

He's a small, harmless little dragon, and while Lian-Chu and Zaza treat him well, Gwizdo treats him like dirt.

21 Sideshow Mel (The Simpsons) Sideshow Mel is a character in The Simpsons. He is the sidekick of Krusty the Clown because Sideshow Bob went to jail. He first appears in the episode Itchy and Scratchy and Marge.

Sideshow Mel constantly puts up with Krusty's abuse on a daily basis.

22 Diamond Tiara (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) Diamond Tiara is a female school-age Earth pony and minor antagonist who first appears in Call of the Cutie. She and Silver Spoon are classmates of the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

Oh no you don't diamond tiara is an obnoxious little brat who enjoys bullying the cmc, making fun of blank flanks and being annoying

23 Eugene Horowitz (Hey Arnold)

Eugene gets my vote. He's always crashing into everything and getting hurt constantly. Everything good that happens to him gets broken, destroyed, or ruined. His classmates treat him like dirt, and he thinks it's totally okay (probably because it's been like that for a while). Rhonda, the queen bee, calls him and some other characters a "geek", and everyone, heck, even Arnold for a while, go along with it like it's fine. The only character that hasn't laughed at him or made a rude joke about him is Arnold, and he tries to get people to be nice to him, but nobody listens to him anyway. Sorry, got a little carried away there.

I always feel really bad for him, he has such bad luck. He's a really good person, he always is positive, remember the first or second episode, where Arnold accidently broke Eugene's bike that he's always wanted, I thought he was going to get really angry but he's actually really nice, and throughout the episode he has a ton of bones broken but he still had a great time. He's awesome.

This boy is the character I feel the most bad for. His so-called friends (minus Arnold, of course, and that one girl) always say mean things about him, he's always getting hurt, and somehow manages to stay positive on top of it all! I'm surprised he hasn't become depressed or done something over the top...

I feel very bad for Eugene. His so-called friends (minus Arnold) are always saying mean things about him and he's always getting hurt. And somehow he stays positive on top of it all...

24 Tom (Tom and Jerry) Thomas "Tom" Cat is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films.

Childhood is the time when you like Jerry and admire his smartness. Maturity is the time you understand Jerry is a Jerk and you feel sorry for Tom. SO TRUE!

Can't Tom truly win just for once?

25 Eddy (Ed Edd n Eddy) Eddy is one of the three protagonists in the Canadian-American animated comedy television series Ed, Edd n Eddy and is the self-appointed ambitious leader of the Eds.

He get abused by his older brother
