The Top Ten

1 Pickle and Peanut Pickle and Peanut Pickle and Peanut is an American animated television series that premiered on Disney XD on September 7, 2015. The series was created by Noah Z. Jones, creator of Fish Hooks and Almost Naked Animals.

Even if it was on Adult Swim, nobody would like it. It's a very ugly, slightly trippy, weird show. - RaccoonCartoon

For a Disney cartoon, this is not Disney. This belongs more on [adult swim]. Even Pan Pizza of RebelTaxi said it best. HOW DOES NOAH Z. JONES KEEP GETTING HIRED?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

2 Two More Eggs Two More Eggs Two More Eggs is a series of animated shorts produced by The Brothers Chaps for Disney XD's YouTube channel under the production company Citywide Hoop Champs Inc. in association with Disney Television Animation. The Brothers Chaps were well known as the makers of Homestar Runner.

How could the makers of Homestar Runner do this to us?! This show was so awful. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

3 Sunday Pants Sunday Pants

Okay. Saying words like "hell", "damn", "ass", "crap", "bastard", and "sucks" on a Cartoon Network show is one thing, but flipping the bird just takes it WAY too far! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Cursing. Need I say more?

This is WAY TOO DRUGGED UP! What's worse is that they used words like "hell" and "damn". ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! A Cartoon Network ORIGINAL SHOW FROM 2005 WAS CUSSING?! What is this?!?! Regular Show of the 2000s?! This is a rip-off of KaBlam!, except it's more for adults. This belongs more on [adult swim] than it does on Cartoon Network. AND THEY FLIPPED THE BIRD?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 Regular Show Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

I watched this since I was 8.5 years old and I feel this is more of an adult show. It curses which is fine and it's a good show. I just feel it's more aimed at adults Than kids. - AlphaQ

A lot of adult jokes for a kid's show, maybe it has more than SpongeBob! Well, I'm pretty sure they censored all the adult jokes in my country because parents here freak out over everything on T.V., but I had seen some of the American versions that weren't censored. - RaccoonCartoon

It's one thing that a kids show said words like "crap", "damn", "bastard", "hell", or even "ass", but "piss"? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I know a lot of people like this show, but I think Regular Show is a terrible show. I mean, this show curses. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Cartoon Network SHOWS ARE NOW CUSSING?! I think this should be on [adult swim], and I don't care if it has a T.V.-PG rating. It is on Cartoon Network, and kids are going to watch it. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

5 Adventure Time Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for putting Adventure Time on this list, but still. I used to love Adventure Time, but looking back on it, I feel too mature for it. It just isn't fun to watch anymore. If you're still a normal fan, I don't have a problem, but if you are a fantard, just shut up. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

You said you were TOO MATURE for this show. So why should I be on adult swim if your too mature for it?

It's mostly the humor and art style. Also, this show sucks at story arcs to me. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I'd say this is more of a Teen cartoon. - AlphaQ

The early seasons were more childish, but the later seasons became more trippy and sort of mature. - RaccoonCartoon

6 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

This is so disturbing and revolting. How is this a revival of the 1990s Nickelodeon?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Every single thing in this show is a fart/poop/butt joke! - RaccoonCartoon

It's just 2 kids who fart and puke. - AlphaQ

7 The Problem Solverz The Problem Solverz The Problem Solverz is an American animated television series that aired on Cartoon Network. Created by Ben Jones, it follows Alfe, Horace, and Roba, a group of detectives in their troubled town, Farboro.

What? I thought this was already on Adult Swim! - RaccoonCartoon

Too cute? (My EYES! )

Let's be honest, even if this was on [adult swim], it would still not be any better. Yes, [adult swim] rejected it for looking too cute, but still. Oh, it's too cute for [adult swim] alright. NOT! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

8 Secret Mountain Fort Awesome Secret Mountain Fort Awesome Secret Mountain Fort Awesome is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt that debuted in 2011 on Cartoon Network.

This feels like Cartoon Network's attempt to make the Brothers Grunt. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

9 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

Such a hideous abomination! Was this one of the reasons 2014 was such a bad year for me? - RaccoonCartoon

This show makes me feel sick to my stomach - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

This shouldn't even be a show. - AlphaQ

10 Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket is an American animated television series created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan for Nickelodeon.

What is the style even going for here? I have no idea why they made this show, it's random and gross. Not gonna lie, when I first heard of it, I thought it was Adult Swim. - RaccoonCartoon

This show made me lose my lunch. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I agree spongebob definitely could be on adultswim the first 3 seasons had lots of adult jokes and some dark episodes but seasons 4 onwards are much darker with skin ripping suicide references characters almost get there heads chopped off mrs puff tries to murder spongebob and the show even made a suicide joke with squidward in are you happy now and the 2 newest episodes had spongebob perform surgery on squidward and accidentally chop his head off offscreen and a fish pretending to hang himself this seems like a Adult cartoon and this aired on nickelodeon lol - danny700

So many adult jokes and as weird as this may sound, there's a lot of scary scenes. - RaccoonCartoon

If a SpongeBob Adult Party Cartoon comes out I'll stop watching SpongeBob. It'll be ruined.

12 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Who put this on the list? It IS Adult Swim. - The01Bro

Uh, this already IS an Adult Swim show. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

13 Ren and Stimpy Ren and Stimpy The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

This doesn't seem like Nickelodeon at all. - RaccoonCartoon

I think ren and stimpy should be on adultswim instead of Nickelodeon because it has lots of sexual innuondoe and graphic vilonce like bleeding intestines eyeballs and kidneys all being thrown up into the air this seems like a Adult cartoon and this aired on a kids network lol - danny700

I love this show, but it doesn't belong on [adult swim], because it's owned by Viacom. If anything, it belongs more on MTV. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

14 Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-Head is an American animated sitcom created and designed by Mike Judge. The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge originally aired on Liquid Television.

There was an episode when Mrs. Bighead tried to seduce Rocko... It was messed up. - RaccoonCartoon

This belongs more on MTV, if it's not gonna air on any Nickelodeon platforms. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
