Cartoons With the Worst Looking Animation

The Top Ten

1 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.

The animation of this horrible show is a problem itself. It's ironic that they don't realize they should solve this problem!

How Is Adventure Time Higher Than This? At Least That Show Didn't Give People Seizures. Seriously This Should Be Number One! Not Number Three!

This Has Like The Worst-Looking Animation I Have Ever Seen In My Entire Life! There Is No Show That Can Be Uglier Than This Pile Of Crap.

That art style. My eyes. They look like Pepe The Frog rejects. - Lunala

2 12 oz. Mouse

I've changed my mind about Peppa Pig having the worst animation ever (it still is the worst show ever though). This animation looks like A 6-YEAR OLD MADE IT ON MS PAINT. I always use the company to make drawers but they are great!

Most of these are understandable, but this show's animation makes me SICK! - 906389

Definitely laziest. And yeah pretty ugly.

I hate this animation even worse than Peppa Pig. This is BAD!

3 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. The show revolves around a fraternity of five monsters who unleash wild stunts upon the public from their eponymous mountain fort. The show is loosely based on more.

I Respect Your Opinion. To Me The Animation Is Decent.

Animation was pretty good. I think most people have an issue with the character designs and even I didn't mind those (except for that disgusting green ball-shaped monster)

One of the characters is a butt called "Fart" not joking. - Lunala

4 Angela Anaconda Angela Anaconda is a Canadian–American children's television series created by Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose, the latter of whom who also voices the title character.

I am... so confused on so many levels. Why is there a show like this? It feels like one of those worst nightmares with the character designs, except they look obscure and realistic. Why is the voice acting so terrible here? Why is the animation so horrendous? Why is the plot out of nowhere? Who thought this was a good idea? Why does it feel like there was no quality check on this whatsoever? This is... fascinatingly bad. I can’t think of a better candidate for another review.

MY EYES ARE BLEEDING! AAHHH! *dies* (What even is that creature on the left?! )

Oh, gosh, this is nightmare fuel! Especially when these hideous, grey-skinned abominations move!

This gives children nightmares

5 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.

The animation is extremely lazy and feels like they're skipping the frames on purpose. - KalloFox34

Seriously? How is this below Adventure Time? Adventure Time's animation is honestly pretty clean for an animated series. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is not number 1? - Garythesnail

The animation's decent, but the designs are off.

6 Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by Eric Robles for Nickelodeon. It is based on Fanboy, an animated short created by Robles for Nicktoons and Frederator Studios, which was broadcast August 14, 2009 to July 12, 2014 on Random! Cartoons. The series was first more.

Their character designs reminds me of "The Cramp Twins"

The CGI is SO ugly. - Turkeyasylum

This is why I hate CGI. - lannypetersong

Tranboy and Dum Dum - PatrickStar3

7 Uncle Grandpa Uncle Grandpa is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt for Cartoon Network that premiered on the network on September 2, 2013. The series is based on Browngardt's animated short of the same name from The Cartoonstitute.

I loved Uncle Grandpa, but looking back, yeah it sucks,

Teen Titans Go is way worse. At least this improved in later seasons. - kcianciulli

8 The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is an American animated television series created by Thurop Van Orman for Cartoon Network that premiered in North America on June 5, 2008. It stars creator Thurop Van Orman as the voice of Flapjack, a naive young boy who was raised by a whale named Bubbie and more.

It's Not That Bad!
But Still Creepy As Hell!

Flapjack's art is very unique. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The animation is so gross!

10 The Brothers Grunt The Brothers Grunt is a Canadian animated comedy television series by Ed, Edd n Eddy creator Danny Antonucci that originally aired from August 15, 1994 to April 9, 1995 on MTV.

I felt sick seeing the animation for the first time

To think this is from the same person who gave us Ed, Edd n Eddy... I can only use two tropes to describe this show: Nightmare Fuel and So Bad, It's Horrible. Just seeing glimpses of these deformed degenerates and their straining and bulging blood veins is the epitome of Body Horror done terribly... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This show has a very disgusting art style. - KalloFox34

Please, get this to number 1. - Not_A_Weeaboo

The Contenders

11 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 more.

Mis-adventure time is the worst animated thing ever because mi-stakes is the worst animated thing ever

Adventure Time has some of the best animation in cartoon history. I only put it behind Avatar when it comes to best animation in an American cartoon.

The animation is great but the way characters like Finn, Bubble Princess and Marceline are drawn is just plain odd/weird/strange and stupid.

Adventure Time has some of the best animation in cartoon history. Without bias, I really mean that. I only put it behind Avatar when it comes

12 Mega Babies Mega Babies is a Canadian animated series created by the Tremblay brothers, Christian and Yvon, who previously had made the H-B's show SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron.

This is the ugliest cartoon show to ever come out of Canada.

Below Adventure Time? That is it, I have officially lost my marbles. - 445956

13 Legends of Chamberlain Heights Legends of Chamberlain Heights is an American adult animated sitcom created by Brad Ableson, Mike Clements, Quinn Hawking, Josiah Johnson and Michael Starrbury.

This has to be number one. You actively need to TRY to make animation this bad-looking. - phillysports

14 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.

Come on, that's the charm of Beavis and Butt-Head. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The series revolves around a young boy named Clarence and his two best friends Jeff and Sumo.

16 Chowder Chowder is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Cartoon Network. The series follows an aspiring young child named Chowder and his day-to-day adventures as an apprentice in Chef Mung Daal's catering company.

The animation isn't bad, but it IS disgusting. - KalloFox34

You either love this show or you hate it. - lannypetersong

Hey! I love Chowder! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Chowder is the worst cartoon ever invented.

It's a great cartoon I used to watch it all the time when I was younger - IceFoxPlayz

17 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

WHAT? South Park has some of the best, most unique animation! - Turkeyasylum

The animation is intentionally bad. - KalloFox34

Lmao why isn't this #1

Because, especially during its first three seasons, South Park had more to it than just the lazy animation. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

18 Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

I'm sorry but the inconsistency of animation in this Is way to distracting. The designs are generic and spawned the tumblr look. Some characters look like they don't belong in the sane established universe. The colors are pretty though but a nice palette isn't enough to excuse the technical errors. I know Rebecca Sugar says the reason that the character designs will wildly vary Is to be artistic but in this sort of established universe it doesn't work. In a surrealistic nonsensical no rules world like Uncle Grandpa it works here it doesn't

The colors in this show are BEAUTIFUL. Whereas Problem Solverz, they use too many colors/flashing colors per frame.

Such an overrated, gay show. - lannypetersong

Seasons 1-2 had great animation. Season 3 was alright. Season 4 is where the quality starts to decline. - Rue

19 One Piece One Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 851 episodes to date.

While its not that bad a show the animation is just plain weird and ugly. - egnomac

This is a anime not a cartoon - BigBrotherYESTotalDramaNO

You mean the 4kids version right? - kcianciulli

That guy looks stupid

In each location, Nina finds she "needs to go" to the bathroom after becoming too engrossed in play, and the mission is to get her there before it is too late. more.

Even Sanjay and Craig has better animation than this!

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

The characters are hideous, and why is he drooling all the time? It's disgusting.

Why is this show on this list? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

WHY though ITS AWESOME ( I watched an episode where the mutant apocalypse started and Ricky and morty had to turn themselves into these weird fleshy things so they can blend in with the other mutants) - IceFoxPlayz

22 Mr. Pickles Mr. Pickles is an American animated television series created by Will Carsola and Dave Stewart for Adult Swim.

Oh my god

23 Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon"

This has AWFUL looking animation! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Same animation as the original.

24 Clutch Cargo

Animators back in the day clearly did not know how to animate characters mouths moving so they took the easy way out and put their own mouths over the badly drawn characters, the characters barely move and when they did its all done badly. - egnomac

Awful animation anytime the characters talked their mouths would be replaced with someone's actual mouth.

25 El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera
26 Almost Naked Animals Almost Naked Animals is a Canadian animated television series that is produced for YTV. The series premiered on January 7, 2011 on YTV.

A fourth season was confirmed on the Twitter page of David Wain, who voices the character of the Warden. The series follows the events more.

Why do people like this god awful show?! And I thought Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Flapjack's animations were bad. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

This doesn't have to do with the animation, but I personally feel the art style is gross and unappealing. - Rue

29 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is an American animated television series produced by Filmation based on Mattel's toy line Masters of the Universe.
30 Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket is an American animated television series created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan for Nickelodeon.

The animation is okay, but look how the show is kinda creepy ( I'm still watching this because I want to observe how bad this cartoon is as usual)

31 Mickey Mouse Cartoons

The animation looks good back then but nowadays (especially the 2013 series) was just decent nor bad (depends on the animation amd the plots).

32 Total Drama Island Total Drama Island is a Canadian animated television series which premiered in Canada on Teletoon on July 8, 2007 and on June 5, 2008 in the U.S.

The show itself is good, but it's very lazily animated. Comes with the territory of Flash. - KalloFox34

Why? this cartoon is great... first time I see this I thought this cartoon was created on 2017.. better than most of the artstyles. - XtheXlmao

Cheap, gross, and glitchy flash. I will pass. - BigBrotherYESTotalDramaNO


33 FLCL FLCL is an anime original video animation series written by Yōji Enokido, directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki and produced by the FLCL Production Committee, which consisted of Gainax, Production I.G, and King Records.

This is an anime not cartoon but it is a really good anime the animation is really unique in my opinion

34 My Gym Partner's a Monkey My Gym Partner's a Monkey is an American animated television series that was created by Tim Cahill and Julie McNally Cahill and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

This is one of the worst designs I've ever seen in my life. It really is.

But look past that, because this is actually a stellar cartoon!

Fun Fact: The creators of this show both worked on Rocko's Modern Life. - kcianciulli

The people who animated for this are the same people who animated for Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain. Wang Animation Studious

At least they make fun of themselves. Often referencing Phineas' triangle head and whatnot. - Hajj

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

The animation style for this isn't even that bad. It's decent. It's not the best animation ever but I still wouldn't put it on this list

This and cartoons after is when animations started to go down hill.

Adult Party Cartoon MOST DEFINITELY. Nickelodeon is good.

I strongly disagree. - Rue

40 Johnny Test Johnny Test is an American-Canadian animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation, for the first season, and Cookie Jar, for the remainder of the series.

Johnny Test is the worst cartoon I ever saw. It is a ripoff of Dexter's Laboratory. Johnny acts like he is a 5 year old and is the annoyingest character, come on Johnny grow up!

It looks like it's being animated by people with arthritis.

41 ToddWorld
42 Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil.

Seriously the worst thing ever made in the history of anything ever they are literally just noodles with a meatball for a head whoever put the original Teen Titans I'm ashamed the original was epic not this piece of crap they call my "new favorite show" ha - Milkshake

They look like chibi toddlers! And they even use photo animation. Ugh.

This Show's Animation Is So Ugly! It Should Be Number Two Next To Problem Solverz.

This has really bad animation, especially when compared to the original. Why did they have to reboot a wonderful series into something that could've come out of a mentally ill sophomore?

If everyone new about the front of her face, they would delete this - Oliversky

It looks like it was created in MS Paint. Should be top.

I did not know that ms pain was used to animate

I know it’s a toddler show so it’s supposed to look like some simple acrylic art, but this show looks like it was made in Nick Jr Draw and Paint. They use no color schemes or actual animation. They reuse the same pallet. Plus, they probably just erase a few steps back, screen shot, and redraw for every shot.
