Top 10 Cartoons That Went Downhill But Still Remained GoodTwitchandVinegar
The Top Ten
Several episodes of season 4 either stuck too close to the formula or tried too hard to be bizarre. However, it was still funny overall and didn't overstay it's welcome like certain other shows. You will be missed, Phineas and Ferb! - TwitchandVinegar
Phineas and Ferb set a good example that should be followed by other cartoons: end the show before it gets bad, keep it good, fresh, and fun! - LarkwingFlight
I guess it was still good when the formula was wearing thin. Season 4 did manage to balance it out a bit from what I saw. - truespongebobfan
There's some good episodes but the repetitive plots (like the one the writers need to recycled such as Mordecai and Rigby breaking something and must fix it) and the romance dominate the show a lot for a bit and it hurts my perfect score. The last season will manage to make it up, though. - truespongebobfan
I like the romance in the show but it began consuming the show in later seasons. I want to watch Regular Show not Degrassi! Luckily, the show has gone back to it's routs in season 7 while still developing the characters. - TwitchandVinegar
This show REALLY overstayed its welcome. It has WAY too many episodes for a Cartoon Network show. Yes, not as much as Adventure Time, but still! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
The show saved itself before it collapsed, great!
While some episodes were bad, I think the later episodes also have a lot of really interesting and funny episodes. - TwitchandVinegar
At least post-Ego Trip (2001-2003) didn't suck at all...
Only the animation went bad. The show itself was still good.
At least Chris Savino tried to stay true to the Genndy Tartakovsky era compared to what Elliot Blake did to Space Ghost Coast to Coast. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
I know a LOT of people would disagree with me on this one. While the modern episodes are nowhere near as good as the older ones, I think the show is still usually funny. To be fair, I didn't really grow with the Simpsons like most people. - TwitchandVinegar
Agreed. It's not what it used to be, but it's still watchable. - BKAllmighty
They have been runing out of ideas
agreed - Garoto_Oceano
I still don't understand why some of the seasons are hated so much. Besides, "Ridonculous Race" was one of the best seasons in years (even though it technically a spin-off). - TwitchandVinegar
I loved all of the seasons, but my favorite was All Stars. - listotaku17
Total Drama was never good in my opinion. - regularponyfan09
I still like total drama
The last season was interesting to say the least. However, I still think it was really funny and felt more like the first season. - TwitchandVinegar
The first season is funnier
I know several people will disagree but I found season 5 underwhelming compared to the previous seasons. Sure, there were some AMAZING episodes (such as "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" and "Amending Fences"). However, there was too much fan pandering (even though I like Slice of Life), too many predictable plots, flanderization, lazier character designs, too many pop culture references, weaker humor, and rehashed ideas. It's good but it feels like a different show to me. We'll see how Season 6 plays out. - TwitchandVinegar
I Actually Think Seasons 5 And 6 Are Not That a Bad In My Opinion
Personally, I think MLP continues to put of great episodes even in season 7, 150 episodes in. At the same time, I don't like how Starlight has replaced Twilight as the show's prominent character. She just isn't interesting in the slightest.
This show went downhill around the 5th season when episodes were not that creative as the 1-4 season were great and really funny.sesons 5 and 6 are god but not as good.
some episodes in seasons 5 and 6 are prety funy and god but some episodes...MEH
The later seasons of the original Powerpuff Girls aren't as good as the earlier seasons, but I would still take them any day over the crappy new reboot. - Disneykid00
Lots of people don't like the later episodes but I think most of them were still really funny. - TwitchandVinegar
The later episodes are even more funnier than the older episodes. But I like the old episodes better for the action. - AnimeDrawer
At least Chris Savino put more energy and effort into this show than Nick Jennings and Bob Boyle did. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Many people seem to dislike the newer seasons but I think the show is usually still hilarious. As much as I like Stan, I actually like how the show has started focusing on some of the other characters. - TwitchandVinegar
Again, this is going to be a VERY controversial thing to add. I actually prefer the earlier episodes. I feel like the show now focuses too much on the drama and isn't very fun anymore. However, it's still very good. - TwitchandVinegar
I also enjoyed the earlier episodes too, but the storyline of it is just perfect now. - funnyuser
Um... EXCUSE ME?!?!?!? The episodes are better than ever now, and the plot is VERY developed!
This abomination has over stayed it's welcome, and constantly tries shoving it's themes down our throats. While many other Cartoon Network shows are being cancelled as of 2016, this one stubbornly clings on.
I'll pick SpongeBob, only because it did went downhill and got better again. Hope it stays that way. - truespongebobfan
Well, it's better now than it was back when One Coarse Meal and A Pal For Gary aired. - lavashooter
It went downhill for many years, but I guess after the movie sequel it improved. - Skullkid755
Some of the newer episodes were pretty bad, and I haven't seen the last season, but I heard it was better.V 1 Comment
Seems a little bit early to put this on the list. Season 2 may have a few bumps, but it still has some great episodes so far.
We'll just see and wait. - TLHRules
This went downhill?
This is the exception to this. Honestly, it started to suck more in the current season. Season 10 had so many problems, like the overuse of Crocker, the jokes being predictable and stupid, and the plots not being original. - truespongebobfan
Get this off the list the show is the downfall of nick - Tyoshi
Season 4 felt a bit sloppy in the writing department at times, but it was still enjoyable. - truespongebobfan
