Top Ten Most Disturbing Animated Shows
The Top Ten
This cartoon is disturbing but disturbing in the good way - Spongehouse
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. - AdrianVandoom
I love this show so I guess I am a disturbing little girl who will show up in your nightmares or maybe courage is great and I surrounded by crazy people35 Comments
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. - Seddeu
This show is creepy. Craig kind of looks cool, but the rest of this is so disgusting. What is American television coming to.
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. - BubbleBear01
This show never ends2 Comments
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
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.
It should be number 1
Only a sadist will enjoy this show.37 Comments
"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
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.
This is just about the creepiest show out there. Salad Fingers talks to inanimate objects and actually enjoys to feel pain.
This guy had an orgasm stabbing his finger with a needle. How is this not number one.18 Comments
This proves that "animators" today want to make kids dumb and learn about butts... Such a disgrace
2 Retards delivering bread... - BreadWinnersSuck
Gross, gross, grosser. - BubbleBear01
Shake your ass? like what1 Comment
This is not helping my already strong fear of dogs...
No dip its disturbing! The most disgusting and messed up cartoon ever created! Deserves to be number one - Spongehouse
I saw a little bit of this and no it's messed up.
Only edgy wannabe brats watch this.7 Comments
Blood and gore and woodland creatures that give birth to the anti-christ is just plain creepy.
I can't believe why this isn't higher. Anyone remember the Scott Tenorman episode?
Too much controversial stuff, shouldn't have even been made.
Sometimes American's are really bad at comedy, this for example.4 Comments
I remember there was this one episode that I never wanted to see. But I remember it was disturbing like hell
The dark harvest episode alone probably gave it this spot.
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
From Old School cartoons, Invader Zim is the most messed up, even more than Courage, no doubt.7 Comments
A kid and a dog in a universe where everything is possible. But all these random possibilities are creepy and disturbing mostly the song that plays at the end.
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 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 - SammySpore
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 - TwilightKitsune17 Comments
I can relate to ren in ren seeks help I can get like that sometimes.
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.
Ren Seeks help legit ruined my day when I watched it...6 Comments
How is this so low on the list?!? - Spongehouse

It gave me nightmares.
This show scared the hell out of me as a kid! It was so creepy!
This show honestly scared me as a child.
The characters look terrifying, and the plots are horrible. Enough said. - Powerfulgirl108 Comments
Uncle grandpa is a molester, enough said
Uncle Grandpa is Tyga because he is a Pedophile. - AlphaQ
A show with pedophile references. Enough said. - redhawk766
This show is terrible. - Powerfulgirl106 Comments
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
Dolls that kill each other, blood and gore.
When I was about 7-10, the intro disturbed me. I was so frightened by the scientists eyes and just his animation
Messed up I saw it when I was 10
Robot Chicken is Awesome! - Fireboy3 Comments
This show can be disturbing at points, but Like Courage the Cowardly Dog it's the good kind of disturbing - Spongehouse
"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 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
There was a banned episode about the duo and a fat man smoking!
This is already on the list stupid.1 Comment
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.
Lord hotcakes was one of the scariest parts of the show. He looked so dang creepy!
The ugly close ups of the characters and strange voices always freaked me out
That episode where everyone got bit by Flapjack's rat was beyond disturbing! I had nightmares about it as a kid for a week! - Drippycheesycanoli9 Comments
Rabbids are overused. - Extractinator04
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. - Extractinator04
Aaahh! what is that?! My eyes are bleed!
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.
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.
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. - AdrianVandoom
This show has toilet humor
How do they crap? Do their crap just dissolve in them?
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. - Powerfulgirl10
That's what peter griffin described catdog. "That would be like a living hell brian! "
The animation is enough to give you nightmares7 Comments
One of the most disturbing, scariest and creepiest shows I have watched as a kid. Don't know for sure how it holds up today, but I had a decent age when I watched this show, so I guess is still one of the most disturbing kids shows up there. - AdrianVandoom
I loved this show as a kid and I still love it now, but that to me when I was a kid was like the conjuring to me now it was satisfyingly creepy
This show scared me for life as a kid. Just watch it for yourself and see what I mean.
This show is just utterly disgusting. I cannot watch it while eating a meal4 Comments
(Reaction to watchin this)
What is this yet alone going on?
While a very funny show, most of the time, it's a creepy as Hell.
There's an episode where the Aqua Teens go on vacation and Carl has to baby-sit Meatwad's dolls, AND HE GETS HIS SKIN RIPPED OFF!
Yeah, screwed up show. But great. - MattBoo
Totally disgusting. Should be number one.
I'll never wanna eat at McDonald's again with taliking skakes, fries and a meat ball that hasn't cook over a year! Gross!
Why is this here? - Extractinator04
Why is anime on the list? If any anime should be on here, it’s Puella Magi Madoka Magica
I hated the scene where the three boys beat Lucy's dog to death. It was so cruel, and then lucy got mad and killed everyone.
This one of the most disturbing shows out there even worst than adventure time.
Other teen thought it was cool...
It's so sick!
Guys! Please Take This To Number One!
Ugh. This show is terrible. - Powerfulgirl10
I saw two episodes. It was okay. But what I heard about it, it is the WOR$T - Extractinator04
Who made this?
Barf! - Spongehouse
This show is really sick gross-out humor.
This show is just, messed up
Hey! This show was my childhood! - IceFoxPlayz
This show has got have one the ugliest characters models in shows period. Also the fights, are not cool, seriously who wants to see a animal's butt get kick by some humans. Now that's ANIMAL ABUSE. Also they can't even make a realistic rabbit or lion. And yes, it's horrible and I've seen episodes of it.
That is one dumb move right there for Cartoon Network! They decided to put a crappy superhero show that was made by Germans! Thanks a lot, Hitler! Can't wait till this distrubing show gets cancelled soon!
Don't call this one guy an idiot you jerk! He probably did not know! U r a dickhead!
Let alone my fanfictions ABOUT it - xandermartin98
Now, now, I really appreciate the cartoon, but you shouldn't show this to your children. - redhawk766
This is an early Elsagate cartoons. StiffViolence, toilet humor and more materials way to beyond PG entertainment. This is Rugrats + toilet humor Mega Babies is like a ball of rolled up dough and Rugrats is a finally baked and toasted delicious Bagel
I swear, the creators of this show literally have a fetish for using literally as much gross-out humor as humanly possible. - xandermartin98
Your City, USA. No I live in Britain. These brats should just kill themselves with their nappies exploding.
Imagine Rugrats with powers but it was toilet humour.2 Comments
What episode had blood in it? I need seen any blood in this show.
How is this scary or disturbing
Wait isn't this show like for ages 3-12
Yes! This Show Was Very Disturbing Espically When It Had Blood In It. Seriously Though? I Just Want To Know How This Ever Got On A Kids' Channel.2 Comments
Maybe its on this list because it has one episode with someone getting cancer
I take back what I said earlier, this show is crap
This is one of my favorite shows, but paper rout bout is EXTREMELY disturbing
I don't think this was meant for kids anyway...
What this show was a little bloody but it's SO GOOD like my favourite show of all time
What so seriously someone please answer this. How is Futurama disturbing? Salad Fingers isn't that scary I watched them all and love them the one I voted on isn't even bad I just thought it was the only one that deserved to be on the list. I don't know maybe I have a severely messed up mind. - happyhappyjoyjoy
A weird cartoon about a pickle with a big butt and a peanut that's always farting and listening to rap music
More like Penis and Nuts. Never seen this show. Just seeing the adds makes me wanna KMS. - Extractinator04
Sandy grosses me out the most, especially the hibernating Sandy.
A Pal FOr Gary was disturbing, - Extractinator04
Acheris an excellent adult cartoon, Produced by FX and created by the same people as Frisky Dingo, there is something for everyone in this show, from Raunchy humor to an in depth story.
This wasn't on here? - 445956
Come wayward souls
Made me have nightmare
The Halloween episode has one of the most disturbing scenes especially the scenes where Ed hallucinates and sees people as monsters.
It's a bit disturbing, because the characters look a little creepy, but Ed, Edd n Eddy is still a cool show!
Couldn't be anymore disturbing than it's production card:-/
When they are eating the jawbreaker.1 Comment
I was surprise that Northwest Mansion Noir/Mystery even aired considering the amount of blood shown in this episode!
Well, then you must hate me. Just saying.
Scares me when I was a kid
The only reason I voted for this is to say I hate all the fans3 Comments
