Top 10 Cartoon Protagonists that Went DownhillCartoon Protagonists/ main characters that went downhill over time. I'll only be including cartoon protagonists for this list. Not side characters or antagonists. Like always if I missed one feel free to add it.
The Top Ten
The whole show is basically dead and Timmy is an ungrateful brat. I'm Actually glad that Butch Hartman left nickelodeon. This show needs to get cancelled - YoshiApple
I'm glad I stopped watching. After watching this as a kid, I can't bear to see him today! It's a disgrace. One of Butch's creations ruined. - EliHbk
He is not really a bad character but sometimes he can be a huge smart alec. - YoshiApple
I disagree because his political views are mostly good and he's the open mind in this wirld. He added quite a bit of depth to the series while still remaining funny. That he sometimes acts completely out of character is solely for humorous effect and not canon.
But then, the German market is a few years behind, and furthermore, I am a few years behind the current episode in Germany. Maybe in the meantime he became horrible. - Martin_Canine
He went from being a good father to being an idiot. Don't believe me watch the newer episodes. He beats up random people for no actual reason and tortures his kids ( Especially Meg ) He really deserves to be in jail. - YoshiApple
He has always been an idiot. He has actually done dumber things in the beginning seasons. I do hate how he has changed though. - CameronBinder
Patrick Star used to be a really funny and likable character, but now in the modern SpongeBob episodes, he is a complete idiot (in a not good way at all whatsoever) - UltraLunalaX
Okay, Patrick has gotten better as of season 10, but seasons 6-9 Patrick was awful. - Drawbox
Bringing him back in Season 4 was unnecesary and only to make money, he also acted way more robot in the later seasons which was awful because he was suppose to be a smart robot who acts human! - darthvadern
He's still decent in my opinion, just underused - darthvadern
Went from a funny comic relief to an annoying gamer - darthvadern
