The Top Ten

The more.

Caillou whines, throws temper tantrums and always gets his way. So parents don't let your kids watch this. It will make YOUR kids whine and throw temper tantrums. Oh and MY seven year old sister still likes this retarded show! - EpicJake

Oh my god.. All this brat does is whine, throw fits, be annoying, and be spoiled! (And so much more..) Fact, even as a KID I hated him. Every time the show came on, I would change it as fast as a could. Heck, TONS of kids have changed because of him. Some kids can go from sweet little angels to devils, which Caillou is. This show is horrible and teaches kids negative things. I'm surprised it's still going on... This "little angel" teaches kids to whine, throw fits, torture people, get anything you want, etc. Honestly, this show should just rot in a hole. This is horrible.

Yes kids, watch Caillou and learn how to whine, always get your way, throw temper tantrums over stupid stuff, and torture your siblings and other people.

Any Parents on here should block this show instantly. - Turkeyasylum

2 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2019) is an American preschool educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.

She is blind, deaf and rude. She asks where something is when its RIGHT behind her! - EpicJake

It teaches kids to wander off and explore places without your parents. It also teaches kids that saying no swiping will stop stealing. Kids, that's not how life works. Stupid Dora. - Therandom

That's the first time I've seen a dora hate comment remotely mention another character - Harri666

Dora "dummy thicc" the Explorer. - Catacorn

This show is dumb! I mean Dora is fat and deaf, the forest is there idiot. It teaches kids that you can run off into places you don't know by yourself without your parents permission. That is so dumb and weak I mean what if you get killed or something else bad happened. It also teaches you to stay away from a dangerous animal, all you do is say "Swiper no swiping" and then the animal goes away. That not how to stay away from a dangerous animal idiot! So dumb and bad to teach to little kids.

3 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.

Too much bathroom humor. - Connor360

Who ever came up with this should be forced to be responsible for Queen Victoria's death. - Money1208

This show makes little kids say trash.

I feel sorry for the kids who actually watch it.

4 Jessie Jessie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from September 30, 2011 to October 16, 2015. The series was created and executive produced by Pamela Eells O'Connell and stars Debby Ryan as Jessie Prescott, a small town Texas girl who moves to New York City to try to become an actress, more.

Nothing will top this show, I love it! I find no problems in terms of the production nor the representation more even the cast, especially Cameron Boyce. R.I.P. Cameron. Leave this show alone! - NickXH

It teaches kids that blonde people are dumb, boys are gross, smart people should be made fun of, and that black people are sassy. - BubblePops

This show is terrible for kids! - EpicJake

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.

More like bread losers.

Teaches you that if you are a main character, you can do anything, even hurt others!

This show has so many butt jokes

This show completely ignores the fact that you can't force anyone to love you - CommentandList

6 Fanboy & 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.

You people do realize they make references to movies like A Clockwork Orange and Silence Of The Lambs on this show right? Those aren't kids movies.

This show scared my little sister!

This shows beyond bad it's hurrdeously god awful it's nasty it's stupid it's just overall annoying I have feeling the creators of this show are on drugs they probably don't know what there doing and this isn't just the worst kids show this is just one of the worst shows of all time it's pointless there's nothing funny about it, it teaches kids absolutely nothing there's no moral lesson what's so ever it's just total!

Parents don't let your kid watch this show it teaches kids to scream at the top of their lungs - Watchmojo

It premiered on PBS on April 6, 1992. The series features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational more.

This picture freaks me out ugly Barney

Bad example for kids. Instead of Barney and friends, it's fatty and losers I hate you you hate me lets get together kill barney with a sword and a knife and an m64 no more purple dinosaur. This show will give you nightmares because once I watched for a minute and then I had nightmares about being forced to watch it.

Fun Fact: The actor plays barney smokes and does drugs.

I still got my scary Barney teddy bear. I fart on it everyday. - AaronCoolness

8 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig is a British preschool animated television series directed and produced by Astley Baker Davies in association with Entertainment One, which originally aired on 31 May 2004. It went on a hiatus for just over two years before re-premiering on 14 February 2015.

School Project has to be the worst episode of the series. - LittleAwesomeApple

There's a running gag about Peppa making fun of daddy pig's weight.

She is bossy and says to her poor dad "Daddy's big tummy". - EpicJake

In a world where everyone's tummies are proportionally the same size, and like Daddy's, to a degree, no less. - Ikura

I remember when Momo hackers used these videos to troll little kids. That aside this show doesn't really teach much from the episodes I've seen. It's not necessarily a bad show, but not really a good one either.

9 Austin and Ally Austin & Ally is an American teen sitcom that premiered on Disney Channel on December 2, 2011, and ended on January 10, 2016. The series was created by Kevin Kopelow & Heath Seifert, the writers and producers of the Disney Channel sitcoms Sonny with a Chance and Jonas.

Barely anyone thinks this is funny - EpicJake

Good thing it ended two nights ago. - Anonymousxcxc

I guess people find it funny. - funnyuser

Very few people find it funny, but everyone else finds it stupid, soapy & repetitive.

It teaches kids to be a retarded, greedy, dumbass bastard. - IceFoxPlayz

10 Teen Titans Go! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television more.

I rather be watching Unikitty than TTG!

For kids whose parents pay no attention to them. Most of the jokes show is targeting adults topped with absolutely over the top juvenile behavior

Teaches kids how to be whiny brats who twerk in front of their parents and teachers! Not for kids!

This should be way higher. While I'll still watch it, even if I don't enjoy it. However, even I can admit, and I literally like everything (name any modern Cartoon Network, Nickolodeon, or Disney Channel show. I will say I like it), but even I can admit, this show will turn your children into messy, selfish criminals. Eric Cartman from South Park and even Hitler are better influences than these intergalactic super villains that are trying to expand their army by teaching innocent children their ways when they don't even know it. Please don't let the evil team that claim to be superheroes called the Teen Titans let you children be apart of their army. Stay away from Toddler Titans No. if you know what's good for you

The Contenders

11 Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi is an American computer-animated musical children's television series with an emphasis on preschool mathematical concepts, such as counting, sequences, shapes, patterns, measurements, and comparisons.

If your kids wanna be a super hero, this isn't how you do it. These tater tots are like "NO ICE CREAM ITS AN EMERGENCY! - EpicJake

Oh no. Your friend can't buy a bike. Forget Lex Luthor over there destroying New York over there, your friends bike is obviously more important. - EspioTheChameleon

If someone is competing against you, they are horrible & cannot win. - RoseWeasley

They teach that if there's no milk, you can't have breakfast.
However, I'll teach kids to have breakfast without milk.

Very bad show. They get calls about stupid things and apparently a little girl not having her favorite book at her grandpa's house is horrible.P. S awful acting

12 I Didn't Do It I Didn't Do It is an American teen sitcom that premiered on Disney Channel on January 17, 2014, and ended on October 16, 2015. The series was created by Tod Himmel and Josh Silverstein and stars Olivia Holt, Austin North, Piper Curda, Peyton Clark, and Sarah Gilman.

Doesn't teach kids anything.

In the, what, 3RD EPISODE, they DUMPED A FRIEND! That's a good example. - Minecraftcrazy530

The most dumbest sitcom of 2014 and 2015 - AaronCoolness

The show is kinda racist because of the main characters. - Radgamer

That's like saying the Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Bob's Burgers or King of the Hill are racist because all their family members are white. - KalloFox34

13 Marvin Marvin Marvin Marvin is an American science fiction slapstick comedy television series that aired from November 24, 2012 to April 27, 2013. The series stars Lucas Cruikshank as the title character Marvin Marvin, an alien teenage boy adjusting to human life.

It's my most favourite. How dare you say it

14 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.

Please. I like Regular Show even better, but it sneaks past WAY more inappropriate content than Adventure time. - Garythesnail

Well, its bad for little kids - EpicJake

Whoever put this show here is a COMPLETE RETARD. AT does NOT deserve to be here. It's a great show despite that Season 1 was a slower pace. Parents should be cautioned by Season 8 since that season was made for teens/adults (I think) - Kid_ethinederland

VERY bad show for kids.

15 AwesomenessTV AwesomenessTV is an American sketch-comedy reality series based on the YouTube channel of the same name and is created by Brian Robbins. Both seasons contain 20 episodes.

I like this show, boom

More like Awfulness T.V., not a good show.

The laughtracks are put in 24/7, the sketches encourage mean behavior, and the jokes are corny as hell!
Heres a joke the main character told in 1 of the sketches:
"most people think a zombie acopolypse as the ultimate bummer, but turn that upside down and what do you have? "
(laughtrack plays)
A hap-ocolypse!
(laughtrack plays)
SHUT UP. that isn't supposed to be funny! (its intended to be a bad pun)

Plus, if its supposed to be bad, Why would you use a laughtrack!?!?!?

The laughtracks WONT SHUT UP. they use it a million times, and the hosts are horrible! You WONT LAUGH. NOT EVEN IN A BAD WAY. THIS SHOW MAKES DORA LOOK AMAZING.


16 Fred: The Show Fred: The Show is an American television series, created by Lucas Cruikshank that originally aired on Nickelodeon, in the United States from January 16 to August 3, 2012. It was cancelled after the first season due to low scores.

Fred keeps screaming in peoples faces and he teaches kids NOTHING GOOD! - nelsonerico6

I hope Annoying Orange is better than this creepy high-pitched Fred. - AldoFitrian

Annoying orange is better then this

This should be higher. Also he's extremely annoying

It is owned by Canadian Studio WildBrain, which is the largest independent Children's and Adolescent's Film Studio

This is the worst show ever and the Teletubbies talk gibberish and don't get me started with Tinky Winky he carries a purse. - andrewteel

My brother said his first word when watching this. He pointed to the T.V. screen and said "Lala". I don't know if that counts as a word or not! Haha! - Wolftail

This is the worst show ever

Little kids watch that show and only learn how not to talk properly. - xpixie

18 Sam & Cat Sam & Cat is an American teen sitcom that originally aired from June 8, 2013, to July 17, 2014, on Nickelodeon. It is a crossover spin-off/sequel of both iCarly and Victorious.

Because of this show, those who were my classmates in elementary school started bulling me just because I liked the educational series and they started to tell me weird as Sam does, who is different but we are all worth the same but this show is the worst for children, parents never let them see it just teach you to insult someone for your tastes and preferences and tell them that you deserve to suffer for being different

I have to say, this show is the worst example ever. Sam teaches that it's okay to torture kids and to threats them like crap. Cat is considered as the "typical sweet girl" but she's dumber than Dora. WORST SHOW EVER. Jennette Mccurdy and Ariana Grande are horrible role models for kids.
And why is the Total Drama series on the list?

Only an evil person would put total drama on this list

They teach kids to bully others

19 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 Ren and Stumpy show has one of the scariest scenes I have seen in any kids T.V. shows. Ren gets upset with Stumpy, I think, and starts talking about how he's going to torture him. He says things like "and then I'm going to rip your arm out of its socket". - DrummerBoyJack

I saw a ddlc meme for this show and it was Monika and Yuri, so that's good enough for me

I hope the 2019 reboot is silly and imaginative and for KIDS ONLY.


20 So Random! So Random! is an American Disney Channel sketch comedy series that premiered on June 5, 2011. It was announced as an independent series after Demi Lovato left the parent series, Sonny with a Chance.

If you want to be random you gotta be like NotSmirks and uolliaC.

The series stars G Hannelius, Blake Michael, Francesca Capaldi, Stephen Full, Regan Burns, and Beth Littleford. The series was co-created by Michael B. Kaplan.

This just shows how disney is runing out of show ideas. The dog is cute though.

Who put this on here there is nothing wrong with dog with a blog

The dog is cute, though the rest of it makes no sense. - Anonymousxcxc

I like dog with a blog who put this on the list

Teaches kids how to bully people on school - Craopoo

How is this not in at least the top 5? - DaWyteNight

Teaches how to be the worst student on high school. - StupidIdiot

This show is about sexual innuendo mixed with bad lessons and stereotypical jokes.

23 Sally Bollywood: Super Detective

It teaches kids to stick their noses into other people's business, let girls go into the boys bathroom whenever, steal other innocent children's belongings, make them think they can do anything ( Which could get them seriously injured since we're talking gymnastics.), and have a bratty attitude like Sally. She basically LIVES with Doowee. I mean, they're already next door neighbors! Sally's vain and thinks she's good at everything.

I absolutely LOVE THIS SHOW! It comes on qubo every night at 10:00 pm Eastern time.

24 Mad

Its actually good. I like it

This show teaches kids to make fun of other people brillaint (Sarcasm) - VideoGamefan5

This show may teach you friendship but RARITY is so girly that you'll think being girly is annoying! - EpicJake

I don't like it. I don't hate it. I don't care about it. - Garythesnail


On my opinion, this is more of an educational show - MLPFan

26 The Brother's Flub

The name is really cheesy and lame.

27 Fancy Nancy

30 Postcards From Buster

Really?! Trip show?! Not on pbs… oh, is it pbs kids go!

31 Arthur Arthur is a Canadian/American animated educational television series for children, created by Cookie Jar Group and WGBH for PBS.

To the person who got mad at seven lizards for not liking arthur,( witch by the way I am fine with this show ) stop being mean and respect his opinion.

I used to like it, but it went downhill lately. Why are a bunch of 8 year olds walking around in public without a grown up?

I love Arthur. - andrewteel

No, the show taught me NOT to argue! So shut up, SevenLizards, and stop commenting whenever anyone mentions Arthur! If you don't like it, then don't talk about it!

Hey you seven lizards does not suck because I also hate Arthur! - wanda

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.

Have you seen the jokes they sneak past the censors? It even snuck some swears! They were edited out but they were there. It is a great show, but it is kind of inappropriate. - Garythesnail

One time muscle man went on a date and went into a bathroom and his man boobs started going back and forth like a stripper might do plus THEY WERE FLASHING and it teaches kid that destroying stuff, arguing crashing go karts into stupid deep sink holes, arguing and refusing to do work all they time and be selfish and be half naked and not be responsible for anything whatsoever is fun and perfectly normal and ok to do

This show can scare little kids

This show teaches kids to not do work what they are asked

Who the hell thought this show was a great idea? - jameshoward

It teaches kids that if they have to pee they will be saved by someone and brought to the bathroom in some wacky unrealistic way, promoting laziness and irresponsibility

It got cancelled because someone stole the creator's character

37 Winx Club Winx Club is an Italian animated television series directed, created and produced by Iginio Straffi and his company Rainbow S.r.l.

All of them just wear a bra, a short skirt/shorts, and platform heels and fighting crime, Half dressed. The outfits they wear after transforming made them half dressed but why do it took totally long to transform? This show is plain stupid, anyway (Sorry if you like this show but, everyone has their own opinion). The characters have bad voice acting, It teaches kids to wear impolite clothes. I mean, what if those kids want to wear a cosplay of the fairies. - MLPFan

I like watching Winx Club. I have a Winx Club video game for my Game Boy Advance. Lexi is still a Winx Club fan. - playstationfan66

No it's not, look at the animation difference. It's overhated and underrated.

It's a ripoff of Sailor Moon - yunafreya648

Ha yeah my sister and * like it

43 Max and Ruby

Ruby is Max's sister right? So why the hell is Ruby acting like a mother and bossing her little brother around like a son? And who pay the bills in that house anyway? Did they just borrow money everyday from their grandma or something? This show makes no sense - Chaotixhero

I feel bad for Max to be honest. #FreedomForMax - RoseWeasley

I am pretty sure the the reason why Ruby is bossing Max around is because the point of the show is to promote sibling care and to teach kids about taking care of their siblings. That's why their are also no parents. The show is bad because when Ruby is trying to take care of Max she ends up being bossy and the show teaches kids to do whatever they want without their parents.

Where are the parents? Why is this 7 year old bossing her 3 year old brother around? We see Grandma, but WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PARENTS? - Minecraftcrazy530

Cancel This Show Now! No One Cares About Uncle Grandpa - CuteGirlJigglypuff

This show sucks, has bad humour, all jokes are about UG eating Egyptian replicas or eating pages out of a book. Lame. Gross and all the characters suck. Especially Pizza Steve who is the biggest cocky narcissist IN THE WORLD who thinks he is "The coolest and the best". - Lunala

45 Barbie

I like Barbie she my favortie doll in I like bratz too.

She teaches girls that you need to be pretty to be a princess. Who cares!

Barbie is just a dumb show. I mean, it teaches kids that the lux life IS life. Unless you are a Kardashian or a Carter, life is not like this. Barbie even has a love life. All we are missing is a Fifty Shades plot.

Barbie is my least favorite cartoon in the world. - playstationfan66

46 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.
