Top Ten Most Disturbing Animated Shows

The Top Ten
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 liked the Hunchback episode. It's where this deformed little guy with a hunchback goes around looking for lodging. He is refused because of his supposed ugliness, and stays in the Bagge's barn. Courage befriends him, and the next day he gives the best roast to Eustace who keeps treating him bad, even though he doesn't have much to say himself. Eventually after a confrontation with Eustace he had to leave, all happy about Muriel and Courage being kind.

Speaking of which, Eustace had a crappy life and was often poor. This grew worse when Muriel would give more attention to Courage, and that is why he is an antagonist.

Then of course, there's those villians, most of which aren't scary, though the blue guy from Perfect is more creepy than outright dangerous, and the Katz person is not usually scary though evil though a few times it is scary. King Ramses is funny to me.

This is no doubt the scariest and creepiest cartoon network comedy show, also very weird one as well( top 3 probably).. The atmosphere is pretty tight, helped a lot by the colors and art style. The storylines and the character are also pretty dark and scary. And the endings are many times "sad/bad endings"... Something that you rarely see in cartoons, similar with batman beyond from this point of view.

Also the best ever CN comedy series after spaced out, with only adventure time contending.

Most of the shows on this list are on Adult Swim. I'm thinking this list should be made for kids' animated shows - that's what makes it even more disturbing. Courage the Cowardly Dog.. I grew up with this show. Creepy as hell. Especially the "Return the Slab" and "Freaky Fred" episodes?

So there's this annoying blue cgi deformed trumpet fetus thing that appears once in the dog's dream after the dog has a hard day trying to be perfect, that's the weirdest thing I've probably ever seen, and the eyes are least it lasts for 10 seconds and no more do we see it

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.

There was an episode where they stuck their tongues in each other's bellybuttons and started eating the lint and sloshed it around in their mouths.

This really should be number 1.
Scream day, going inside a digestive system, picking their noses and eating it, etc. it's all disgusting along with Breadwinners.

This show is creepy. Craig kind of looks cool, but the rest of this is so disgusting. What is American television coming to.

This show never ends

Happy Tree Friends Happy Tree Friends is an adult animated flash series created and developed by Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Warren Graff for Mondo Media.

Parents beware, one of the goriest cartoons, this show Is definitely not for anyone under the age of 12, or really anyone who doesn't like seeing blood, because there's a lot of it.

I saw one episode a year ago(But I still remembered what happened). And they were having a lemonade stand(aw, cute =3). And everything was just fine until one scene. So one of them had their eyeball popped out(because the lemonade stand's wooden banner fell and landed right to the one who lost their eyeball) and the other one(who was blind folded) mistaken It as lemonade. So the other one cut the eyeball and made It lemonade. The one who made it into lemonade(or should I say, blood-ade) even drank It. I don't know. It was messed up and disturbing, But how come did I find It entertaining and funny in some way(weird)?

The only show to make me actually worry about my life, it's a slapstick but instead of the big ladder, it's a stick with spikes, and a lot of other "fun" creative deaths, it has a huge fanbase, but it's made me very very sad, avoid if you're young or weak to gore

This show (the website series) was pretty disturbing very much but it's usually great anyways and I'm a bit of a fan of this show. I like cute animals, but I'm gonna take a break of being reacted over cute things and take up to the whole new level.

Salad Fingers

I LOVE SALAD FINGERS. I mean yes it is disturbing but its just interesting to see like lowkey feel bad for him I was never able to like figure out the concept but I love it anyways. wish there were more episodes :c

Really weird, there's an idea that he's radioactive and it's easy to see some of it is in his head. Though he's lonely so it makes sense he has imaginary friends.

"I love it when the red water comes out" that line literally had me up for 3 days straight and had to go to the doctor's for staying up for that long. It's creepy yo

Yes I agree. Extremely disturbing. Salad fingers plays with corpses and enjoys being hurt. Watching it makes me want to throw up.

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.

This proves that "animators" today want to make kids dumb and learn about butts... Such a disgrace

2 Retards delivering bread...

Gross, gross, grosser.

Shake your ass? like what

Mr. Pickles Mr. Pickles is an American animated television series created by Will Carsola and Dave Stewart for Adult Swim. The series revolves around the Goodman family, especially their 6-year-old son named Tommy and the family's border collie, the demonic Mr. Pickles. The series was picked up for 10 quarter-hour more.

No dip its disturbing! The most disgusting and messed up cartoon ever created! Deserves to be number one

Brother just showed me this show should be number 1 and should when a Emmy

This is not helping my already strong fear of dogs...

I saw a little bit of this and no it's messed up.

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.

Blood and gore and woodland creatures that give birth to the anti-christ is just plain creepy.

Sometimes American's are really bad at comedy, this for example.

Too much controversial stuff, shouldn't have even been made.

Nah it is not disturbing at all. Cthulhu did creep me out, though.

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.

That one episode where he steals kids' guts scarred me for life. Bonus points for the chicken costume episode and the one with the fast food pig. So disgusting I hate it

I love the dark humor and plot lines in this show. I mean, Zim has attempted to murder Dib at some points. That is terrifying, mainly because Dib is my favorite haha.

I remember there was this one episode that I never wanted to see. But I remember it was disturbing like hell

Bad, Bad Rubber Piggy and Dark Harvest alone are what make it one of the most disturbing shows aired.

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.

I don't really think this show is that disturbing. Except that episode where everyone disappears, that was a nightmare fest. And where the witch turns into an apple and when the other witches eat it there are BONES in it. Creepy. But mostly this show is silly and funny

It's REALLY disturbing, there are creepy scenes and everything is connected in a dark way. it's very hopeless, as the characters all lose their sanity / humanity. also, it's hopeless in the sense that the world can't be rebuilt, there is no afterlife, and there are mutants everywhere that will try to kill you.

I love this show, and there are some extremely disturbing things in it. One example is when the fruit witch touches the thing that turns her into an apple, and the other witches eat her. The worst part is that the apple is screaming and there are BONES in it.

Really? People think Adventure Time is disturbing? Compared to Courage the Cowardly Dog, South Park, Ren and Stimpy, CatDog, Sanjay and Craig and a whole lot of other creepier shows? Honestly, this show is weak compared to them

Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon"

I strangely find that this show actually has some hidden beauty in it. I especially love the episode Ren Seeks Help. I've also seen and love every cartoon others deemed as "disturbing" on this list.

Episodes like Naked Beach Frenzy or Ren Seeks Help do count in deed.

I can relate to ren in ren seeks help I can get like that sometimes.

Ren Seeks help legit ruined my day when I watched it...

The Contenders
Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic more.

10 Reasons why this show disturbing.
1.Quagmire's extreme sexuality
2.Herbert the Pervert.
3.Peter trying to marry Chris in one episode.
4.Chris teaching his grandfather how to masturbate.
5.Chris masturbating to his own mother.

7.Brian once tripping out on magic mushrooms.
8.Peter disemboweling a beached whale with a forklift.
9.Lois once starring in a porno.

How is this so low on the list?!?

People Only Hate This Show Because Of That Hypocrite Mr.Enter

King Star King King Star King is an American animated web series created by JJ Villard and Eric Kaplan for Adult Swim. The series aired on the network's online video streaming service Adult Swim Video on June 15, 2014.

Makes me want to barf!

Awesome show!

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.

I honestly forgot about this show until Blameitonjorge brought it up in one of his videos. Now, I know why I forgot about this show for so long.

The characters look terrifying, and the plots are horrible. Enough said.

This show scared the hell out of me as a kid! It was so creepy!

The animation always made me want to throw up.

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.

This show is disgusting and Peter B is a pedophile.

Uncle Grandpa is Tyga because he is a Pedophile.

A show with pedophile references. Enough said.

Uncle grandpa is a molester, enough said

The Mighty B! The Mighty B is an American animated television series co-created by Amy Poehler, Cynthia True and Erik Wiese for Nickelodeon. The series centers on Bessie Higgenbottom, an ambitious Honeybee girl scout who believes she will become The Mighty B (a superhero) if she collects every Honeybee badge.

This show was nostalgic for me, but now that I look back I realize one episode I remember that when I was a kid, I thought was really messed up

Robot Chicken Robot Chicken is an American stop motion sketch comedy television series, created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root for Adult Swim.

Which I was younger I ran into this show on the umm... toy story 4 thing... I didn't understand but when I saw buzz getting his head cut I was disturbed as hell for a couple days. P.S even my parents didn't know what the f robot chicken was.

When I was about 7-10, the intro disturbed me. I was so frightened by the scientists eyes and just his animation

Dolls that kill each other, blood and gore.

This should be number one. Adventur time is cool but the way.

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

This show can be disturbing at points, but Like Courage the Cowardly Dog it's the good kind of disturbing

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.

"Adult Party Cartoon" is already on the list but that and the Nicktoons version of "Ren and Stimpy" are two almost completely different things stupid.

There was a banned episode about the duo and a fat man smoking!

There were some real screwed up moments in this, like ren saying "I could kill him, with these hands, but I love him" or don't wiz on the electric fence but it's still great though

Stupid cartoon.

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.

I just hate it what can I saw. Its stupid and it makes me feel like the younger kiddos will grow up with some mental problems.

I'm really starting to miss those cute, cuddly, And innocent cartoons from the 50's. Now that we got this pure horror to show our kids.

That episode where everyone got bit by Flapjack's rat was beyond disturbing! I had nightmares about it as a kid for a week!

Lord hotcakes was one of the scariest parts of the show. He looked so dang creepy!

Rabbids Invasion Rabbids Invasion (French: Les Lapins Crétins : Invasion) is a French/American animated television series which premiered on August 3, 2013, on Nickelodeon. The series began airing on Nicktoons during its second season in late 2015. On June 23, 2017, the series finale ended during its third season. more.

Rabbids are overused.

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Aaahh!!! Real Monsters is an American animated television series developed by Klasky Csupo for Nickelodeon.

Never heard of this, but the guy on the bottom left looks like Pop Fizz, the guy at the top looks like Eye Five, and the guy on the right looks like he has a dildo for a head.

Aaahh! what is that?! My eyes are bleed!

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.

I really like the animation style and the look of the characters besides the two main, also the characters are actually seem to be like real world people and are quite well thought out, all except the two main. Yep, they are pretry disturbing.

Get this one off the list! Beavis and Butthead is funny! (You spelled beavis wrong. )

Keep it on the list, American's fail at humour.

Oggy and the Cockroaches Oggy and the Cockroaches is a French animated comedy series produced by Xilam and Gaumont Film Company.

This show is as disturbing as happy tree friends. Only no blood and veins are in it.

They had a picture of a naked lady in one episode.

The Cramp Twins

I don't understand why people find this show scary or creepy, it's really not. This is however a weird show in the sense that there is nothing like this out there, combining weird, flat humour with a serious set up makes this a unique show that is very underrated. What makes this show weird and unique is the fact that is actually serious though it's comedic. And also the comedy is very different from what we saw before. However it is not and never was disturbing, scary or creepy, just unique and weird.

This show has toilet humor

Catdog CatDog is an American animated television series created by Peter Hannan for Nickelodeon. The series depicts the life of conjoined brothers, with one half being a cat and the other a dog.

Where does the cat and the dog potty at because they need butt-tucks and genitals to poop and pee with? Using their mouths are a lot gross compare to Johnny Knoxville's Jack*ss!

The Splat actually made theories about that on Bark Week. Literally.

The nightmare episode was disturbing enough. Especially with the "the end" sign covered in blood!

That's what peter griffin described catdog. "That would be like a living hell brian! "

Watched it when I was little, but it's a weird one like most American 90s cartoons.
