Most Disturbing Kids Shows of All Time

There are some kids shows that are great. But then, there's this. Some "kids" shows that are... not so great. They're scary. Creepy. Disturbing. So here's a list for them. Enjoy.

The Top Ten

1 Morso

Scariest thing ever

That would give most kids nightmares, who thought it was a good idea to give a character in a kids show this kinda face

. those puppy dog eyes...

It even looks creepy.

2 Courage The Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

The monsters creeps me out

I don't think this show was meant to be a kid show.
I think it's for teens and adults.
I'm 13, I've seen one episode (the mask), and it was pretty dark and creepy, but I enjoyed it cause I love being scared.
This is a good show for people who like dark and mystery things.
But it's not for kids, I think I can make them have nightmares.
But anyway, It's a good and enjoyable creepy show, and it actually has good messages. But it's inappropriate for kids.

16? This has got to be like top 10 at the least. No other shows has gave you consistent dark episodes like Courage did in almost every single one it seemed like. - htoutlaws2012

This show was amazing, however as a child, the blue thing from the very last episode made me have nightmares for weeks.

3 Mr. Meaty Mr. Meaty is a Canadian-American television series created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley. The show centers on two lazy teenage boys named Josh Redgrove and Parker Dinkleman, who work at a fast food restaurant.

Just look at their faces. - kcianciulli

Well the show itself is very dark for a nickelodeon show, in the realm of Invader and Ren & Stimpy. Only those shows did it better executed than this. - htoutlaws2012

Ughh! The picture! - micahisthebest

4 Invader ZIM Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

... I just...this show...messed me up so bad...I do not have words

Saw dark harvest when I was like 5 years old, too stupid to comprehend what I just saw before my eyes, but it was scary and soon after I forgot what the show was, but I could not remember what it was called. I finally found it again and I rewatched it, I don’t know how this came to air, but I am glad it did

Dark, but the best way ever. - htoutlaws2012

5 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.

Ren and Stimpy pioneered the gross-out/shock-comedy genre. - Jackamalio

6 Jigsaw

Creepiest T.V. show based on a horror movie


That thing looks like Michael Myers but with a more creepier mask - ToddHoward

Not only that, but how did they approve of the character he looks like a dude who could murder people, and that is not good. How appropriate of another horror fictional character. - htoutlaws2012

7 Ratafak Plachta

That looks like a doctor suess character IN HELL - myusernameisthis

(Screams himself to insanity)


The Big Bird of Slovakia - poopesmoji111

8 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

A crappy cartoon is nothing to be scared of. - myusernameisthis

Oh, come on guys!
This is a disney show, and it ain't disturbing at all.
It's not for little kids, it's for pre-teens and teens.
I'm 14 and I started watching this show when I was 8, and I still love it.
I love the mistery, the storyline and the characters.
This show shouldn't be on the list because it's hilarious!

Occasionally disturbing, but in a good way!

Not disturbing

9 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated comedy television series that aired on Nickelodeon from May 25, 2013, to July 29, 2016, for three seasons and 60 episodes. The series is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.
10 Peppermint Park Peppermint Park is an American direct-to-video children's show consisting of around six volumes, released in 1987 and 1988. The show had many similarities to Sesame Street, in that it was a mixture of live action, animation, and puppets. It is almost completely lost with only a few clips taken from more.

I have a strange feeling in my gut that the Peppermint Park demons kidnapped the vintage Sesame Street characters that aren't on the show!


Peppermint Park is just about human puppets teaches kids in just disturbing way.
It looks like those puppets sounds like they put real humans and some stuff.
And it also looks like Jim Henson killed kids and look at them.

Do you just see the picture above? It's just a result like it was made in human flesh that mixed with plastic ala Shayne John.

And dat rabbit! That's from the different show! I mean that rabbit looks so real like it was just made in real human rabbit.
And much of a lost brother of Bugs Bunny and much of an early version TTG.

And if you want to see more about the show.

Wow, this show is amazing. Too bad it's lost. I wish that someone would release it on DVD or Netflix. Such a shame. - lannypetersong

The Contenders

11 Boohbah Boohbah is a British children's television programme created by Anne Wood. It premiered on 14 April 2003 on ITV in the United Kingdom, followed by its Nick Jr.

Why you shouldn't give the Teletubbies weed. - Entranced98

Retards always calling shows like this "weed". Its just an unusual show, but the Teletubbies were cute this was unusual.

12 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.


Well just looking at the picture alone is very justifiable being where its at, but the lazy animation makes this one uneasy for a younger audience. - htoutlaws2012

That face is just... disturbing! - micahisthebest

13 The Powerpuff Girls (2016) The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. more.

I think you meant the 1998 show. - htoutlaws2012

How is this disturbing? - micahisthebest

14 Goosebumps Goosebumps is a Canadian-American horror anthology television series based on R. L. Stine's best-selling Goosebumps book series.

I sometimes watch the episodes and movies

No this is for kids 8;and up

The episodes with Slappy genuinely scare me as an adult, other than that, it's not. Even when I was 8 and first saw it I was rarely scared.

Well if you read the books they are disturbing, and even the show itself lives up to that promise. ''You will beware, you're in for a SCARE! '' Indeed we are. - htoutlaws2012

15 TV Fofão


His cheeks look like ballsacks - ToddHoward

That pic is gonna give me nightmares. - truckturner

Also known as stranger danger if anything. - htoutlaws2012

16 Mad (CN)

I did not find this that disturbing really, maybe in a few episodes, but I was not really into it. - htoutlaws2012

17 Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes. It is owned by Canadian Studio WildBrain, which is the largest independent Children's and Adolescent's Film Studio

Ya know, when you watch it in black and white, it is very scary.

Am I the only one who finds the Teletubbies cute? - RedTheGremlin

We've all seen that tongue thing... - truckturner

It kind of is!

Yeah in a way that seeing the babies or maybe the opening intro might give some of those elements a bit of that factor. - htoutlaws2012

18 Téléfrancais

One word: Ananas

A pineapple, okay? - htoutlaws2012

19 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.

I've only seen this show air twice, and on boomerang.
I seen the first few episodes and I haven't seen things like cat sockets. - Qryzx

Yep this show was extremely trippy for a Cartoon network show. There are ton of moments you can feel uneasy watching this show. Do I need to mention the Cat's sockets. - htoutlaws2012

I remember this! It's very forgotten but I still like it. - RedTheGremlin

20 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.

The episode Keeping it Together is pretty disturbing, but not the rest of the show

Steven Universe is amazing! The only disturbing episodes were: Frybo (a living killer suit is creepy), Keeping It Together (corrupted gems are scary), the one with the Glitched City (everyone was soulless), and Nightmare Hospital (again with the corrupted gems)! Other than that the show is pleasant, and I really do recommend it! 10/10

21 Aaaah! Real Monsters
22 Tomorrow's Pioneers

"Child on phone: I want to kill them."

Blameitonjorge brought me here, and boy I wish he didn't.

Thank you to whoever submitted this. This show is just evil. It has killed off several of its main characters, promotes hatred and anti-semitism (in a show for children), and one of the characters rips off Mickey Mouse.

What kind of kid show is this?

23 Popee The Performer

I'm honestly surprised this show isn't higher up on the list. I personally love this show and it doesn't scare me, but it was for kids and I can understand why some little kids might be scarred by it. In almost every episode one or more of the characters just straight up die, sometimes in brutal and bloody ways. It's not all just death though, there is a lot of slapstick comedy and weirdness mixed in and I love it. It can actually be pretty funny sometimes. - MoonlightNekomata

Blood gore and cannibalism. ya know F O R K I D S!

Hate me all you want but, I loved it.
But, respect your opinion though

I honestly don't understand how this show is number 26, it should be higher on the list. I personally love this show and I'm not disturbed or scared by it, but it is a kids show and I understand why it might freak some little kids out. The characters just straight up die in brutal and bloody ways, and I'm honestly surprised some of the episodes even got past the censors. - MoonlightNekomata

24 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.
25 In the Night Garden...

Scary just like Teletubbies


26 The Wiggles The Wiggles are an Australian children's music group formed in Sydney, New South Wales, in 1991. The current members of the group are Anthony Field, Lachlan Gillespie, Simon Pryce, and Emma Watkins.

I've always hated this show - MegaSoulhero

The show consisted of singing for the most part, however at one point in the shoe they decided to put in them horrifying looking puppets of the then 4 of the show. - htoutlaws2012

The only scary thing about this show was that skit with those unholy puppets...

Really, this show was not scary to me

The only scary thing was the puppets. It was my favorite show as a little kid. - RedTheGremlin

27 Over the Garden Wall Over the Garden Wall is an American animated television miniseries created by Patrick McHale for Cartoon Network.
28 Wizbit Wizbit is a 1980s BBC children's television show about an alien magician, Wizbit. It starred conjuror Paul Daniels and wife Debbie McGee.

Imagine in 1986, and you were forced to watch this, I would feel bad for you. You'd rather put on Sesame Street. - htoutlaws2012

29 The Animals of Farthing Wood The Animals of Farthing Wood is a children's animated series commissioned by the European Broadcasting Union between 1992 and 1995, and is based on the series of books written by English author Colin Dann.

No clue how this is so low on the list considering it outright depicts animals being run over and impaled on brambles. Even has a seen with a bunny watching his best friend being brutally killed. Never show this to your kids unless you want to raise a tiny serial killer.


Based on a book, it's look like Happy Tree Friends and Game Of Thrones was combined to this.

Isn't this the one with the evil Rabbit!

No it is not, its like a kid news report only more uncomfortable as you watch it. - htoutlaws2012

33 The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (also known as Billy & Mandy) is an American animated television series created by Maxwell Atoms for Cartoon Network, and is the 14th of the network's Cartoon Cartoons (albeit namely when it was part of Grim & Evil; the show is considered separate from Cartoon Cartoons more.

Some songs are spooky and creepy

34 The Lion Guard The Lion Guard is an American animated television series developed by Ford Riley based on Disney's 1994 film "The Lion King". The series was first broadcast with a television movie titled "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar" on Disney Channel on November 22, 2015 and began airing as a TV series on January more.

The show is not good at all. It is the worst of today's generation.

This show is pretty good, but calling it suitable for Adult Swim is a bit of a stretch. I think it would be better on DisneyXD than Disney Junior.

35 Ed, Edd N Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban more.

It's a good show - myusernameisthis

Chockfull of bad vibes. Watch it if you dare. Well, no please don't watch it.

44 Tots TV

What? This is not disturbing. Three puppets similar to Rosie & Jim except the girl speaks French. They just live in a cottage and have a pet donkey.
Anyway the play area in the waiting room in my local hospital would disagree. They've got some Tots T.V. thingy on the wall, it must've been up there since the early 90s.

45 The Muppet Show The Muppet Show is a family-oriented comedy-variety television series that was produced by puppeteer Jim Henson and features The Muppets.

You guys are wrong this show rocks! Shame on the haters! SHAME! 1! 1

46 Captain Underpants

Am I the Only one who likes captain underpants? -Pinksteelwolf

What the hell? This isn't even a T.V. show.

These were a book series for the most part, and now out of the bloom gets a movie. Not sure where somebody thought this was at one point a show. - htoutlaws2012

47 Miburi TV

Check her clothes! - GamingSanx
