Meanest Cartoon Characters of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Squidward - Spongebob Squarepants Squidward - Spongebob Squarepants Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Here's a fact about me: When I was little, Squidward used to be my all-time least favorite Spongebob character because of what he did to Spongebob in Fools in April (despite apologizing) and how mean-spirited he is overall. (My new all-time least favorite is Puffy Fluffy, by the way.) - Jasmine21064

I can blame him if I want I hate him

I hate him

I don’t have to hate him. He was proud of Spongebob at the end of Band Geeks.

2 Mr. Krabs - SpongeBob SquarePants Mr. Krabs - SpongeBob SquarePants Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Even meaner than Squidward. - KalloFox34

How is he not first? - Userguy44

He committed crimes like almost killing a health inspector in the nasty patty, driving plankton into suicide in one coarse meal, counterfeiting in Krabby kronicle, almost murdering Squidward in out of the picture, poisoning customers with spongey patties in the Krusty sponge, using Gary to steal money in the cent of money, breaking into his moms house in mid life crustacean,selling all his employees in born again Krabs, firing spongebob in spongebob your fired, stealing the hat from the dead guys grave in one Krabs trash, and selling his employees in born again Krabs.

This dude wants more money than Roblox. - Gabo147

3 Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

How is he not in the top 3! At least characters like Squidward (SpongeBob Squarepants), Benson (Regular Show), and Tom (Tom and Jerry) have the excuse of living an awful life or having characters who annoy them on purpose. Plus, they can occasionally be nice. When has Cartman even been nice unless he benefits from it? And don't even get me started on the horrendous things he's done. He's pretty much the cartoon version of Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones: bratty, sadistic, and pure evil. The only other character that I could possibly see at number 1 is Ren from Ren and Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon," and speaking of which, why isn't Ren (the Adult Party Version in particular) on this list? And why isn't he number 1?

At least with Squidward, his attitude is understandable because SpongeBob and Patrick constantly annoy him on purpose, plus he can be nice, but Eric Cartman made someone eat his parents, made fun of pretty every group of people ever, and he’s mean to the other 3 boys. - 3DG20

How is Cartman nicer than Squidward?!

Cartman's one of the meanest cartoon characters, he's a narcissist, and a psychopath, he's also racist and mouth fouled, but he doesn't deserve to be that high because that's what makes him one of the funniest characters on South Park

4 Eustace Bagge - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace Bagge - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace Bagge is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

True. Somebody call PETA.

He is so grumpy he can't even pet a dog without being nice

Well, this guy often been grumpy and mad all the time ever since the squid made his first debut. The farmer who often scared and tormented an innocent cowardly pink canine and neglected his own wife by watching T.V. and reading newspapers without even care about. He also cared about being rich since he was holding some weird artifacts (such as a slab of King Ramses or an atomic carrot grew into a giant size). He often screwed up during or at the end of the episode which he deserved to get his horrifying fate which he does'nt have any memory of the incident.

But by the way, Eustace Bagge was a legend.

5 Benson - Regular Show Benson - Regular Show Benson Dunwoody is a main character on Cartoon Network's Regular Show. He is a gumball machine, also known as The Park's manager. As the manager, he is the boss of every park worker (with the possible exception of Pops). He has a short temper and has a tendency of yelling at Mordecai and Rigby every more.


Benson is the best character in the show - money_face

He is mean but awesome! - Spongehouse

Poor Mordecai and Rigby, always scolded by this angry gumball machine

6 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

He gave Stewie drugs, farts in Meg's face, tried to marry his son Chris to get money, he attempted to bond with Stweie by abusing and attempting to kills Lois, destroyed Brian's teeth, shot his own friend in the arm for no reason, shows no remorse for killing people or animals, and destroys other people's property without feeling guilt. I think he should be higher than Benson and Squidward. Neither of them are that bad. They're just mean because they're stuck in bad jobs with idiot co-workers/employees, and they still have a good side to their personalities. Peter has no reason to treat everyone as mean as he does. I know Family Guy has a lot of mean characters, but what has Cleaveland, Joe, or Mort Goldman done to deserve the way they are treated by Peter?

Burn in hell

7 Caillou - Caillou Caillou - Caillou

He throws tantrums like a baby and he is worse than Barney. - andrewteel



Accuracy, it never misses.

Why did I say that? Because caillou is about as close to a completely accurate representation of four year olds everywhere. Whiny, snobby, selfish, and down right bossy. I have a nephew who's the same way, and I can tell you people, he's like a light skinned version of Caillou! I use to love this show as a kid, but when I looked back at all my favourite shows growing up, this had to've been the worst one.

Rick may be a genius, but he's a very grouchy scientist.

19 Mr. Cat - Kaeloo

He always bullies poor Quack Quack for dumb reasons like relieving his own stress and jealousy that Kaeloo likes him more.

He's quite mean, but entertaining and fun to watch.

It's a miracle that Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack still see him as a friend. - DoubleDuckAvenger

There was one episode where Mr. Cat tricked everyone else into thinking that they owed him money and then threatened to murder them (quite literally, with a gun) if they didn't pay him the money in 24 days.

25 Mr. Grouse - The Loud House
26 Vicky - The Fairly OddParents Vicky - The Fairly OddParents

Top 10 material. - Userguy44

How is she not higher?! She literally tries to kill Timmy every time she babysits him. She is the cartoon version of Misty from Pokemon! Why? They are also really annoying gingers!

How is she anything like Misty? Misty's a nice person, as long as she's not angry. Vicky, on the other hand, is sadistic and sociopathic towards everyone, especially Timmy, for no real reason. - KalloFox34

27 Stewie - Family Guy

He tries to kill Lois, but it is entertaining at least.

28 Kearney Zzyzwicz - The Simpsons
29 Edward Bighead - Rocko's Moern Life

Seriously, why wasn't the show's Christmas special "How Mr. Bighead Stole Christmas" - xandermartin98

In Canned, he literally tried to murder Rocko. - KalloFox34

Three quarters of the challenges he makes the contestants do aren't even legal.

He has problems.

He is the mentally unstable school teacher of Timmy and is one of the main antagonists in the series.

Looks like a child molester. - Gehenna

He's not mean. His past just really sucks and just wants to unleash his pain on everybody. Just because he wants to uncover the secret of...FAIRY GODPARENTS! Seriously, get him off the list. Replace him with Vicky, who I think deserves #1. - OnyxDash

I think he's changed a lot in the newer episodes, but I still like his humour.

Yeah he is mean to Timmy. - cosmo

35 Dora - Dora the Explorer Dora - Dora the Explorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer". Her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend, Boots.

Dora: Where's the red ball?

Dora: Where?
Me: Are you blind?!? It's right there in front of you!
Dora: There it is.
Me: Thank god. - andrewteel

She interrupts you when you say your favorite part, she make you say "MAP! " louder and louder, and she asks where something is when it could perfectly be seen

Dora I suppose she would annoy anyone over the age of 5. Things that can be perfectly seen well duh everyone who posts on here is obviously not a toddler.

I said no to go on a adventure and she said alright let's go she super bad at Spanish

39 Slappy Squirrel - Animaniacs Slappy Squirrel - Animaniacs

Dude,she's not that bad.So,she can be a little rude,but she's also kinda funny.

She is the worst Animaniacs character >:(

She ruins people's life.

40 Kevin - Ed, Edd N Eddy Kevin - Ed, Edd N Eddy


41 Pretty - Kaeloo

The very second episode in which she appeared had this: Kaeloo had a horse and then Pretty forcefully took it away. Kaeloo somehow found a magic unicorn. Pretty kept whining until she got a unicorn too. Then she shot the normal horse. Then she realized that Kaeloo's unicorn was faster than hers. So she threatened to euthanize her own unicorn.

Almost forced her sister's boyfriend to marry her so she could wear a dress and buy an expensive ring? Check. Shoot a horse and kill it for no apparent reason? Check. Looks down on people for not having as much money as she does? Check. Nearly disowned her own sister for daring to smile when she herself was in a bad mood? Check. Worst mean girl ever.

She's like the stereotypical high school mean girl, but worse because she does things like, for example, forcefully taking away a horse which belonged to Kaeloo.

She's WAY worse than Mr. Cat. At least Mr. Cat has a few redeeming qualities.

I actually like her! She was portrayed as the stereotypical "jock," but that just made the moments when she experienced happiness, guilt, and empathy even more rare and genuine! - Flowersocks2137

Just because someone wants her on this list.
