Most Disturbing Kids Shows of All Time

GamingSanx
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 Morso

I don't know what most of the shows in the top ten are. - Cartoonfan202

Fun fact: There is very little to know of Morso considering its not only mysterious, but the character is just downright creepy. - htoutlaws2012

Kill it! kill it! Kill it with fire!

2 Courage The Cowardly Dog 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.

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.

Not for kids - Epikrika

3 Mr. Meaty 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 The Ren & Stimpy Show 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

5 Jigsaw Jigsaw

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

Ren and Stimpy is a "kids" show? - 445956

The original one was, but then they made the Ren and Stimpy Adult Show or something like that. But I'm pretty sure it ruined the image of the original kids show - RedTheGremlin

Who saw this mask and said: "Hmm, yup! Perfect for children! They aren't going to have nightmares of this guy coming into their house, and people aren't going to make fan-fics on this guy being a murderer!

i'm SCARED

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

The Big Bird of Slovakia - poopesmoji111

I just watch the theme song I think it might be german but what ever it is... IT IS THE CREEPEST SHOW IN THE WORLD

He's not a show, he's a character. He is from the Slovak show Slniecko. I find him adorable actually! - RedTheGremlin

This is honestly the very first time I hear someone saying that... not like it's wrong. - Epikrika

The Show : I don't know
The Character : What is this?
The Concept : ¬_¬

I KNEW this would end up here. - Epikrika

9 Peppermint Park 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 ...read more.

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.
Search blameitonjorge on Youtube with the title Top 20 Unintentionally Disturbing Kids Character or Mr. Nightmare's same video.

This and the show where the rabbit teaches kids to be Naughty are probably the most disturbing!

The puppets in the show definitely give you wrong sense of security. - htoutlaws2012

The with the rabbit that teaches kids to naughty sounded like Teen Titans Go teaches kids to be naughty

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

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

Dear GOD - Epikrika

The Contenders

11 Angela Anaconda 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

12 Mad (CN) Mad (CN)

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

14 Goosebumps Goosebumps

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

I like this show, but some episodes are gross. - RedTheGremlin

Agreed this show makes me wanna gag

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'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

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

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

Really, this show was not scary to me - Cartoonfan202

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

I have Deja Vu with this show... - Qryzx

21 Teletubbies 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 .

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

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

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

23 Tomorrow's Pioneers Tomorrow's Pioneers

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. - Cartoonfan202

What kind of kid show is this?

Thankyou to the person who put this show on the list. It is the most evil, racist, mean-spirited and unpleasant show on Television. Farfour (The Mickey Mouse Rip-off) and the others get killed in this abomination. Who would let their kids watch this.

Felt my stomach get sick just by READING about it in Wikipedia. I m not kidding you. - Epikrika

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

Isn't this the one with the evil Rabbit!

30 Steven Universe 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 - Cartoonfan202

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

Never seen this, doubt it's inappropriate though. - Epikrika

I feel a little bad for the woman who plays that... purple thing. - Epikrika

36 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.

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

They remake everything these days... - Epikrika

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. - Cartoonfan202
