The Top Ten

1 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver . Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and ...read more.

Ok, I will put my hands up here. This show DOES succeed in few fields, like animation and morals.

Sadly, that's all this show has on it. The characters are a mix bag, ranging from tolerable and few laughs worthy like Pinkie Pie and Discord, to downright AWFUL like Rarity and Rainbow Dash. Also, the MUSIC! Oh god, WHY?!? The music is just trying too hard to be hip and cool for us today kids, (I'm looking at you cutie mark crusaders) but it fails FLAT on its unmusical face.

And the fandom...

This has to be, the WORST fandom I have EVER seen, and I don't mean it lightly. For FANS, they SURE talk about having sex and wanting to RAPE their favorite pony more than to my pleasure of reading! Just because I am a fan of "Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi" I don't wish to rape them. Have some respect guys!

Speaking of which, My Little Pony show seems to have QUITE a influence from Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, hasn't it? Cute little girls as the main characters? Check. More often ...more

Seriously, not every bronies are like that, and its just your opinion. - fazwe

This show isn't a bad show, but why does everyone think that this is the greatest thing in the world since the invention of television? It's a cute show, but it's not that great.

This should be first! It is most overrated cartoon in history! I has very impressive voice acting and animation. But there are much more better cartoons which have no popularity at all!

Oh god! I cannot believe I used to love this show as a little girl and now I really hate it with a burning passion! The characters are annoying stereotypes, the animation is way too girly, the plots don't interest me whatsoever and don't even get me started on the fanbase of this show! It has to have the worst fanbase ever invented in my opinion. There are way too much my little pony characters fanart on the internet (literally, search up your favourite characters from a videogame, T.V. show, anime or whatever you like on Google and you are most likely to see my little pony images and rule 34 online everywhere on deviant art) and the fans are mostly sick, creepy, perverted, overgrown men known as bronies who want to have sex with ponies and they cannot respect opinions whatsoever if someone else has a different opinion on a certain character of the show! - UltraLunalaX

2 Adventure Time 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 ...read more.

This show just fails on so many levels.

The humour is disgusting, stupid random and shows no sign of wit. I wouldn't mind it if it was just stupid, because I enjoy stupid humour. But due to the other flaws, the comedy in this show just doesn't work. I WILL admit however that Jake does have a few good lines.

The fantasy element I absolutely despise. It's imaginative, but there's no thought or originality put in there. Every place having a princess, the typical evil king that wants to capture them. The setting obviously had no work put into it. Dungeons and other things of the Fantasy sort.

Look, I give this show kudos for being successful at being random, which was its goal, but it's just not as good as everyone paints it out to be. It's not the funniest show ever, nor is it a masterpiece. It's just one of the bad cartoons that CN has taken to playing on their once great channel.

And don't say that it's just not aimed at people like me. This show should ...more

Totally overrated. Adventure time only shows butts, perverts, p*rn and other bad plots. Except for Marceline, Ice king and Fire princess. PB is weird and annoying. The episode about getting the flower's souls, showed a gay scene. Bmo likes to get laid and junk. I director must really like p*rnagrophy. I rather watch Regular show. Ben 10 omniverse is dumb and annoying, Pokemon B&W is to friendly and childish, GUMBALL is homosexual, Beyblade metal has dumb characters, lego NINJAGO is good but need to better up the plot and the animation. Scan2go is a spinoff of Beyblade and teen titans go is really annoying. Announcer of this show is annoying to. I really miss the old one. At least Generator Rex, Ben 10 UA, Star Wars, etc are good. To me, it's the new CN president's fault. For showing inappropriate shows and movies. Boomerang is like Nick toons, Jetix and Toon Disney. They show old shows. Including 4kids and Vortex.

I agree with you that the show sucks but there are a few points which you got them wrong like Scan2go being a "spinoff" of Beyblade. Both anime were made to promote toy products, that's it. Perhaps the creator/director took a few ideas of Beyblade and added them to Scan2go but other than that, I see nothing's in common between them. Still, Scan2go is better. - xXLittleQueensXx

I know this show has a colossal fan base and if your one of those people that loves it that's great! I'm not saying I hate Adventure Time nor do I like it, it's an okay cartoon in my eyes. I find that the show tries too hard to be funny at times and the storylines are lame as math. That doesn't mean it's bad though. The animation is great and I do love how much imagination there is put into this cartoon. Not to mention they've got really good voice talents like Tom Kenny from SpongeBob. But overall Adventure Time is a cartoon not bad just not as good as most people say it is. I do however get annoyed when fans threaten to bully those who have negative opinions of the show. Really? That's just plain cruel and mean spirited.

How is this not number one. Everything about this show sucks! Keep in mind this is a list for overrated cartoons. There is no denying that this is the most overrated show in history. It has gotten to the point where there is merchandise for everything in every store. I just hate it. The humor is dumbed down and immature, yet too mature for the five-year olds I see wearing the merch, and somehow, too immature for the people I see in there twenties wearing it. Watch two minutes of this show and you should feel dumber immediately. The opening theme is like a trip on shrooms. Just know that if you love this show, I probably hate you for supporting the most mind numbing and horribly nonsensical show to ever exist.

3 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 19 years, and is beginning its 11th season. ...read more.

Seasons 1-3, the movie and a few episodes from seasons 4 and 5 are really underrated if you ask me. But, other than that, the new episodes are completely god awful and really overrated. Now the executives at nickelodeon are making him the ONLY thing on nickelodeon. AND you know what is worse, they refuse to show the older episodes. As lemongrab would say "this is UNACCEPTAABBLLEE!

Personally, I like the newer episodes alright, but the first 3 seasons do have a lot of the most memorable moments and best episodes out of the whole series.

Everyone like the show but it sucks.

Okay. Spongebob isn't at all for kids! Spongebob even CUSSED in some episodes! This series is trash! KILL IT WITH FIRE!

4 Family Guy 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 (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.

Why in the world is Ed, Edd, and Eddy, Animaniacs, and Tom and Jerry above this show? Those shows are fantastic. Family Guy, on the other hand, is filled with stupid cutaway gags, gross humor, and preachyness from Seth MacFarlane. All of the characters on the show are unlikeable (especially Brian! ) and stereotypes of sitcom characters. Some moments on this show like the 3 minute Conway Twitty cutaway gag and the scene with the raccoon chewing on Stewie's brain are unbearable to watch. If you like pure randomness with a paper-thin plot, bland characters, liberal lecturing, and jokes that run for way too long, this is the show for you.

No offense, but this is absolute trash. Even Futurama is better than this.

Do yourself a favor and watch Futurama instead!

People think this dumpster fire of a show is better than Futurama! Take a moment to let that sink in!
Get this garbage higher! It deserves to be higher than Spongebob, Adventure Time and dare I say, My Little Pukeface: Friendship is Tragic!
SCREW THIS WHOLE SHOW!

5 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.

This show is INSANELY overrated. While I'll admit that the show itself is pretty good, the fanbase is utter GARBAGE. Watch the show if you want, but stay as FAR away from the fanbase as possible.

Because they drove a girl that drew fan art for the show nearly to suicide and they thought it was funny. So yeah, the people in this show's fanbase are like satanists or something. - phillysports

Honestly, it's sad how people are simply turned off from a show based on its fandom. Those people should formulate their opinions and actually watch the show. Steven Universe should not be judged based on bullies who were fans of it. Yes, they did a terrible thing to that poor girl, but their behavior in no way whatsoever relates to the show itself nor the messages it sends out to the audience. In no way does Steven Universe encourage such awful behavior, but you have to understand that there are extremists that exist in every fandom that simply must be ignored. As for those of you who have seen Steven Universe and disliked it- let me make this clear: SU is a coming-of-age cartoon; as in, Steven CHANGES. He may seem like a silly little boy at first (who cares about his weight though? ) but in the recent episodes he is a totally lovable and mature character. If you can't handle the first few episodes (which are mainly experimental) then you don't really deserve to see Steven Universe ...more

Don't take this the wrong way, this cartoon is solid. However, I feel people give this show FAR too much credit. The characters are a mixed bag of decent (ie Garnet, Greg, Steven, the Cool Kids, and sometimes Amethyst), annoying (ie Pearl, Lars, Ronaldo, Onion, and some other times Amethyst), and plain overrated (ie Rose Quartz, Lapis Lazuli, and Ruby and Sapphire). The fandom of this show hype it as the greatest thing to happen in the history of history. Plus, the fandom of this show is the most obsessive fandom I have ever been apart of (some fans tell people to kill themselves for drawing the characters "the wrong way"). In short, just watch the show and avoid the fandom at all costs.

The show is good but the fandom is so toxic I swear

You know what's really annoying about this show? Candace is a teenager who looks like she's almost out of high school, yet she's such a tattletale, whenever she sees the boys made something she goes and screams for their mom just like a 5 year old, also what is up with their mom? Every time Candace goes and gets her she's always like "Candace I have groceries" or something stupid like that, then in every single episode, when she comes home she only says 2 more lines "Candace what am I looking at? " And "Who wants pie? " Also why is she never home? In every single episode she always goes somewhere only to come back at the end of the episode just to see that the invention is gone, the only entertaining part was Perry, but even they ran out of ideas, now the inventions are poorly named, and the purpose of them is getting weirder and weirder, and all the stuff with Perry in newer episodes seems like it's being rushed, in the older episodes they spend a good ...more

It's the exact same thing every episode!
Boys have idea to build something.
Big sister tries to tell mom and dad
Perry goes and beats up weird guy.
Big sister fails and Perry comes back!
Also, the mother comes back with something she made like cookies or something.
Just a copy of Dexter's laboratory!

The show is okay but the fandom is complete trash

7 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

Alright, I really, really, REALLY, love Pokemon. Both the games and the anime... but... it's just so OVERRATED! But, yet again, it's so hard to hate due to it's creativeness, cuteness, and awesomeness... but it's all my opinion. I'm just kind of sick of hearing it everywhere over and over again. And about the anime, I like the anime but not as much as the games. There's just WAY too many seasons based on the games, when I feel like they should've put them all together. Some of the characters are quite annoying (Bonnie from XY&Z was the most annoying.). However, Ash and his Pikachu had unforgettable moments that made everyone love the anime, even the villains Team Rocket (Jessie, James, Meowth and Wobbuffet) are very likeable. I haven't watched the comics/manga, but I've heard they're good. I can't say much about the games since there is so much to talk about it. Really, Pokemon isn't a bad game, show, or comic, it's just plain overrated.

I don't like this show - Horse

This have the best idea about show about games, this would be much more overrated than my little pony, because that show is...

Its SOOO Overrated and boring! I don't get how people like this? but my opinion

It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2019, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

This show was never even that great to begin with. Nearly no funny or memorable moments from any season, even in its "golden age" (1987-2005). Now it's low tier liberal propaganda garbage with too many guest stars and celebrities which is even worse. The plots are always predictable and dragged out. Everyone always says this show is the best cartoon ever made but it's not. Probably one of the worst. It needs to be at #1 on this list and this sad excuse for a show needs to die.

Started off fun and exciting, but now it's gone downhill and is still achieving success today, it's about time, the show ends it's run completely.

Lost its magic after Season 25 the jokes aren't funny and they are trying to make it a drama show with serious season premieres. I miss the days where Homer would sit down on the couch drinking Duff and watching a T.V. show like Itchy and Scratchy. What happened to Itchy and Scratchy?

I can say that it is one of the worst shows from Season 26 onwards. But the real Simpsons ended in Season 12.

You Think by now the shows creators would have run out of new ideas for The Simpsons, They Seriously need to stop coming up with new episodes and just end the series once and for all. - egnomac

9 South Park 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.

To one comment I have watched it and I'm not a religious loser.
I just think the show is stupid. Just because its for adults doesn't mean swearing, toilet humour and killing Kenny makes it funny, it's the stupidity of American humour.

No one is retarded, its not a masterpiece its stupid kids swearing with crude animation, toilet humour. Best television show? Well in your delusions only.
Its immature.

You cry everyone hates it so it can't be overrated. No, this show is worshipped, you cannot say anything bad about it or you will be attacked.

Number 1. This cartoon is worshipped.

10 Regular Show Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. 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.

This show is really good, not overrated

Why is this show so like, along with Adventure Time, Steven Universe and Ed, Edd N Eddy. That thing known as "Regular Show" has a very bad influence on kids. What? Talking bird and raccoon who are technically best friends and co-workers of some talking gum-machine-like guy? This is absolutely! No maturity or logic, it's so stupid and disgusting, terrible animation, unlikable characters AND...the guy who created it up is some guy who's drunk while writing this. I'd rather watch paint dry than this, I'm basically losing faith in nowadays-cartoons. - xXLittleQueensXx

Seriously, the plot of these cartoon is so boring! Isn't the point of cartoons to experience things that don't happen in real life? This is the life of two losers working in a park... only they happen to be a bird and a squirrel thing.

This is a great show, just overrated. I completely loathe other Disney shows for obvious reasons, but this is an exception. The characters are clever and the jokes are far from only appealing to minors. But the recent spread of fan-fictions and triangulum art is getting on my nerves.

All it is 2 kids sitting in a boring house, terrible, never watch it!

It's like everyone loves this show but I'm the only person in this universe who thinks that this show is annoying and overrated and adults think that EVERY SINGLE THING IN THIS SHOW IS REAL I know that I'll get a lot of hate for this but I hate this show

12 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Why does everyone think this show is funny?! It's literally just characters constantly screaming and shoehorned in pop culture references that gives Doogal a run for it's money! Everyone who likes this show needs mental help!

I'll never understand what's so praiseworthy about this ugly, pathetic, awkward, mean-spirited and unfunny excuse for a show! Not as bad as Ed, Edd n Eddy but it's still a pretty terrible and overrated show!

This show's entertaining, but it's got glaring flaws. So predictable, with generic episode plots.

Yeah! It is so bad! And here's 3 reasons why I hate it : 3. Boring characters : yeah the characters are so boring because all the characters are humans if not all characters were humans they won't be so boring but ALL the cha racters are humans! Oh come on! Did this shows creator wanted to create the world where only living organisms are humans? 2. Bad background art : yeah 3 words : bad. Background. Art. Worst background art one cartoon can have 1: boring plot : ok maybe plot of some episodes isn't boring but plot of the show itself is very boring its just about a boy with 10 sisters : sounds boring, right? (And sorry if my comment was too long because I'm going to end it right now)

Well, if you saw the intro for the episode name, you can see that it is based off a comic. - IceFoxPlayz

14 Scooby Doo

I don't think it's overrated, but it just has been going on for too long and doesn't bring anything new to the table.

Scooby Doo has lasted for nearly 50 years! Yes! That’s right! 50 long years! Its been almost half a century since the cowardly dog made his debut! I have nothing against Scooby Doo personally. I mean I respect its ongoing and seemingly never-ending popularity. But they’ve made SO MANY Scooby Doo T.V. shows, movies, and specials, that I just don’t care for the franchise. It’s basically the Pokemon of American animation. And it goes on and on for infinity. Warner Bros. CLEARLY has an obsession for the franchise. Now to be fair, we all have our obsessions. But come on, Warner Bros! There are other series you can give attention to! While they have faced real supernatural forces from time to time, most of the T.V. shows and direct to video movies (the original series included) are so repetitive and predictable, that they just bore me. It’s the same over and over again. I mean seriously, doesn’t Warner Br os. g et bored of this? And not to mention, we don’t need a new Scooby ...more

Even though it is better than the modern cartoons, this show is not actually good. It has an interesting premise and character concepts but other than that it sucks. I am not attacking the classic cartoons. I love Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry but this show is just meh. The writing is horrid. You can easily create a program to generate the scripts for this show. Other Hannah-Barbara cartoons were better. Cartoons such as the Flintstones, Johnny Quest, QuickDraw McGraw, and Tom and Jerry had better stories, characters that you can relate to, or better humor. This show insults a kids intelligence treating them like 4 year olds. This was also Hannah-Barbara's first step to being uncreative. They created a whole bunch of pointless Scoopy Doo rip offs such as Goober and the Ghost Chasers. Scrappy Doo did not ruin this show, this show was bland, repetitive, and bad from the start but he was a horrible character that made this show worse. Now it is a cash cow getting milked really badly. ...more

Gravity Falls, (a modern show), has a mystery element a million times better than this. (also it's not the same thing over and over again.) - lolololololol

15 Rick and Morty 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 is great but it's a bit too overrated and its hardcore fans are unbearable!

My dad, his friends, and literally every kid at my school is obsessing over this show. I watched some episodes and it didn't really grab my attention, probably because I'm just a teen, but whatever. - Popsicles

I honestly did not get this show at first. I fell into the overrated crowd very fast. However, I was determined to stick it out for both seasons. By season 2 I found myself hooked. The random plots and scenarios started to seem rather genius and beyond my imaginative skills. Now I'm hooked and able to enjoy season 1 upon revisiting. My best suggestion is stick it out and it will pay dividends.

Adult humor, filled with constant belches, nonsensical humor that other shows have done better, all to the bland, dull, and trendy animation style that's mirrored in other shows like Adventure Time...a style that's beginning to overstay its welcome, this is a show I see no charm in. I don't see why others love it. I cannot see a lot of charm in it. At all.

This show completely and totally sucks, as it's over promoted and played, but the worst offense is the characters.
The Top Worst Characters-
1.Robin- A paranoid, bossy idiot. That's all there is to say.
2.Raven- The exact poser producing stereotype of a "goth girl" that so plagues the underground subcultures.
3.Starfire- While she's nice, many of the episodes show that she has almost completely absent to no moral values whatsoever.
4.Cyborg- His silly antics are very clever and well put, but when overused (and they are), they get annoying.
5.Beast Boy- The best Titan, but still annoying. His voice-actor put too much effort in to making him sound like an adolescent and the outcome was a high pitched, syrupy voice.

But it's a little rude how I'd anyone critizises the show, or just says something it needs to improve on, a million people come after them for expressing their opinion. Same with DBZ.

18 Ben 10 Ben 10 Ben 10 is a media franchise created by Man of Action Studios and produced by Cartoon Network Studios. The franchise revolves around a boy named Ben Tennyson who acquires a watch-like alien device, the Omnitrix, which allows him to transform into ten different alien creatures.

This is a shallow, boring, action show. The plots have always been weak, and the characters unlikable. I have only known one person over the age of 10 who possibly liked this show, and I'm no longer friends with them - as they are extraordinarily immature. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this show at all costs.

The original Ben 10 was great but got old for me, I thought Ben 10:alien force and ultimate alien was great, Ben 10:omniverse on the other hand is horse poop.

This show is amazing, but the fanbase is TERRIBLE. If anyone says that Avatar isn't the best cartoon of all time, or the best on Nick, they go crazy. I prefer the old SpongeBob episodes, and if I said this in front of an Avatar fan, they wouldn't accept that opinion.

I have nothing against Avatar, it deserves most of its praise, but I consider to be the most overrated cartoon of all time due to the intolerable fans. They just can't accept that some people prefer other cartoons.

Great show, but it's not the masterpiece a lot of people say it is. - KalloFox34

I'm sorry but I just can't get into this show, it's not terrible it's just, when I watch it I just lose interest and start doing something else. It's just kind of a lame show, it's not really unique, it's just like having superpowers. I just don't get why when people are praising this show they say it's such an original idea, cause it's really not, and I'm just not a fan of anime, I love regular cartoons though. I understand that people like it, but I just can't understand how it was Nick's highest rated show, cause they have had far better shows

And the butt-hurt fanbase of this show was complaining in the comments and saying that it was better than Looney Tunes and The Simpsons and South Park. And they said that it was a "revolutionary moment in cartoon history", and "a landmark of all cartoons". GOSH, I like the show but it's not THAT great. - Drawbox

LOL what? Hold on, hold on, gimme a minute to pull up the comments.

This is actually nothing

It honestly hasn't aged well in my personal opinion.

I think it's a good show, and it aged very good, not like other cartoons like Cow and Chiken and I am Weasel.

Powerpuff is mediocre. Yet they're considered yo be the best thing since sugar spice and everything nice.

Its just a rip off of the way better pokemon anime

Lamest anime I ever watch way back! These characters wearing helmets, gloves, and weird looking outfits are terrible and the monsters acts like a Winx Club pets with girly eyes! And why does every show ends with "mon"?

Big ripoff of Pokemon. Pokemon is amazing, Digimon is garbage.

This should be number one. I get forced by my best friend to watch it ALL THE TIME. Pain.

Pokemon may have run for too long, but at least we still have the games. Ben 10 may have lost its s---, but it's still kinda cool (Especially the art style). Spongebob may have been kind of stupid, but the older episodes are classic. Naruto, Dragon Ball and Bleach may have had a lot of filler, but they still got the action packed anime vibe. FANBOY AND CHUM CHUM, on the other hand, has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Stupid, no history, boring, terrible art style. Kids, do yourselves a favor and watch Young Justice, Teen Titans, My Little Pony, Adventure Time and Phineas and Ferb instead.

This is not overrated because everyone hates it! Including me! - Spongehouse

Makes me want to drive off a cliff. - Horse

Well, I'm wouldn't call it overrated. I'm not defending it, really, it's just that you must understand the line between what is awful and what is overrated. Being overrated doesn't make a show awful, it just makes it overplayed, or maybe there are serious faults in it that is overlooked, or maybe it's just that people LOVE it when they should merely LIKE it. Fanboy and Chum Chum is indeed terrible, but I have not seen ONE, not even ONE good review or comment about it. That doesn't necessarily make it underrated (it makes it perfectly rated), but it definitely doesn't make it overrated, since no one likes it. Understand?

26 Tiny Toon Advantures

Oh wow Adventures is spelt wrong, people do make spelling mistakes. Anyway 90s cartoons are worshipped.

Hey what is this doing here? Sure, it's a ripoff but there are thing making it funny.

Like Elmira, the totally insane girl who kidnaps animals and make them their pets. The others actually run away from her!

Or Buster, the sarcastic blue brave bunny who helps other creatures from situations like getting trapped by Elmira :)

And Plucky Duck, the fan of Daffy Duck who always gets hit by something or gets in a bad situation.

So this cartoon has no reason here.
Wait,that's actually why it is here! UP WITH IT!!! - Epicsauce45

You spelled adventures wrong

27 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2014) is an American 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.

Everyone talks about them hating dora. - WorldPuncher47592834

They cancelled dora the explorer so Dora and Frends can come in - WorldPuncher47592834

I saw this one commercial with kids talking about how great it is, but it isn't

I Honestly Can't Tell If This Show Is Overrated Or Overhated. I Mean Dora The Explorer Is Probably The Most Hated Cartoon Character Of All Time So I Don't Know Whether She's Overrated Or Not. Either Way Her Show Would Still Suck No Matter What.

28 Animaniacs Animaniacs Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is an American animated comedy television series produced by Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros.

This show really does need to be on TV again, and I mean reruns, otherwise it'd be ruined for a revival series. But this show is somewhat not as good as I thought it would still be,

Now to be fairly honest, I loved the show growing up, but when you count the numerous times most of these characters have appeared, they aren't all that good. The Goodfeathers got boring quickly, Chicken Boo was the same thing over again for 4-7 minutes, Mindy and Buttons was repetitive, Rita and Runt barely lasted a year in a half, the hippos were boring, Minerva Mink only lasted for two of her own.

Slappy Squirrel was great, one of the genius characters of the show, although some of the cultural references got a bit too old very quickly.

The Warners were funny but sometimes just plain annoying (they were meant to be), yes they were charming and cute and mainly the stars of the show, but sometimes, their segments went a little downhill. Wakko's voice wasn't as Beatles-esque after ...more

Just wait for Netflix they are bringing Animaniacs back if you wish it was back.

Not overrated.

No this show awesome! If you hate this show you have no taste in real cartoons! It's a 90s classic/cartoon what!

29 Total Drama Series

Of all the cartoons I hate that everyone else likes, this one takes the cake. I can't think of a character that doesn't annoy me; all of them come off as bland and cliche as possible. The animation as well is lazy, and the humor mostly consists of either toilet humor or laughing at other characters (mostly women) because of their stereotypes. Sure the voice acting is good and the show is creative at times, but the characterization (especially), humor, and animation ruin it for me. - Disneykid00

The Total Drama series does not belong on here. Island, World Tour, and Pahkitew Island are all very great seasons. Action and All-Stars both suck, though. Revenge is hit or miss. Oh, and it's SUPPOSED to be a parody of Survivor, Big Brother, Amazing Race, and reality shows in general. THAT'S THE POINT! And most of the contestants are jerks FOR A REASON; most of them are purposely being satired or parodied of other stereotypes you typically see in reality shows. Like the nerd, the jock, the fat guy, the hot girl, the bully, the goth, the party guy, and so on and so forth. The series does what it set out to do, and it's honestly a lot of fun. Even the spin-off, Ridonculous Race, was a lot of fun. This doesn't deserve to be on here.

Only season 5 is overrated, but the others are great

It's a good series but most of the contestants are jerks.

An action show that's lost its flavor after watching better shows. This little gem has slow pacing, thrown away too many characters for the sake of the main character and his race (that being saiyans, a group of primal men who transform into apes or turn their hair yellow) if you weren't the main character goku, you're a nobody who will accomplish nothing. Goku is a terrible role model. Just because he's strong and good at fighting doesn't mean he has a good character. He's your typical do-gooder who fights for his friends and earth, oh and he has a family too. But the thing is, he ditches them for the sake of either training or being dead. Father of the decade? I think not. Why bother having so many humans and a namek if you aren't even going to use them?

Seriously, I could heat up a hot pocket before the transforming sequences are done

It's just an anime series. There is already a list for overrated anime series on this website.

Look at me I'm the most powerful thing in the supermegagalactaverse super ultra super saiyan extreme killer beam times 100 go! Rinse and repeat for 300 episodes

31 Arthur

It's more underrated, if you ask me. Some people hate
It just for being a kids show.

I saw an episode where Arthur wanted you to be him for a day. He kept staring at himself in the mirror in the beginning.

Seriously!?
This show rules! It's over rated for a reason!

This should be above Avatar.

32 Johnny Test Johnny Test Johnny Test is an American-Canadian animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation, for the first season, and Cookie Jar, for the remainder of the series.

Still better than Teen Titans Go - PerfectImpulseX

Why does this keep airing new episodes when it is hated by all. It really needs to end right now!

The show is repetitive and is a total ripoff of Dexter's Laboratory. The characters are not likable, jokes are forced, there is constant whip sounds and Johnny is annoying.

It's a ripoff of Dexter's Laboratory, a show that's actually FUNNY. They just made the dumb blonde male, and the main character. And they gave him a talking dog because viewership.

33 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

This is one of the most obnoxious shows that I have ever seen in my life. The biggest problem with this show is probably its characters. All of them come across as one-note and/or unlikable. Timmy is very selfish, Cosmo is so dumb he makes Peter Griffin look like a genius, and Wanda is the stereotypical nag. We also have the sadistic babysitter, the crazy, evil teacher, and the stereotypical "dumb" parents. And don't get me started on the characters added on later to the series like Sparky and Chloe.

And then we have the voices. People like Tara Strong and Grey Delisle have proven time and time again that they are talented voice actors, but on this show EVERYONE seems to deliver their lines in the most obnoxious, over-the-top manner that they possibly can. I don't know who the voice director on this show is, but the way he or she is directing the voice actors makes the character voices come off as shrill, stereotypical, and incapable of expressing a wide range of ...more

I'll admit that I actually liked this back when I was a kid, but ever since they had the baby character the whole show has been going to crap ever since (my personal opinion). I'm over 18 now so I've pretty much grown out of kids' cartoons anyway.

I've especially grown out of this show because of Butch Hartman's recent controversy. Considering how he's exposed his true colors, it's clear now that this guy's career is pretty much over. It's done.

I also don't know if it's still going but if it is then it really should end because it really doesn't have any fans anymore (especially since Hartman has pretty much fallen from grace).

I hate this show! It's so cheesy! I mean, look at the animation and characters and stuff! Watching this show makes me want to die...it makes me sick.You get Timmy, a smarty-pants who wishes psycho wishes, Cosmo, a really annoying fairy with a voice that makes me want to slam my head into a door 100 times, Wanda, a paranoid nagging fairy, and Vicky, the evil babysitter. What the heck is wrong with those characters?! Also, there's too many toilet jokes, puns, and other stupid childish humor. The humor isn't for adults, the characters aren't for adults, the animation isn't for adults, nothing's for adults! Because it's Nickelodeon, it's a kids channel! I like Nickelodeon shows like SpongeBob, Rugrats, All Grown Up, Loud House, and many others, but not this crap. However, this show should be rated T.V.-MA, that way it can have adult humor, adult characters, and lots of swearing! This show is just plain stupid, and it's boring! Don't watch it! Also, go ahead and thumb down my rant, I don't ...more

Someone end this show, please. First there was the baby, then the dog, and now apparently there's some sort of 'new girl'. It's clear that Butch Hartman is begging for the sweet release of death and wants his own show cancelled so he can protect what good things it has left.

With flat/annoying characters, constant screaming, grossout humor and disgusting animation, what's to like here? - KalloFox34

It's gross, it's loud, it's annoying. I don't like the characters, I don't even know what they're doing in the whole scene. What's so funny about making weird faces, shrieking, picking nose, eating disgusting food?

This is just hideous and gross. In some episodes it's quite good only them ones are rare. There's too many kissing scenes and chowder is nearly always naked. Horrible

I agree. People who say Jerry always wins, know nothing of Tom and Jerry.

It was my favorite show when I was little! I don'T watch it now since I'm older but it was good.

I love how jerry is "nice" after beating up tom like when he was in the washing machine that one time and jerry was smiling and waving at him

Pokemon fans aren't fat salty haters either. Research our fandom too. - KalloFox34

This show should be number 2 not just because of it trying to steal Pokémon's popularity or the verses Pokémon art. But because it isn't that good. It's ok but not for me.

43 Jem

It started as an 80s doll, then became a cartoon, then a live action movie when probably most people had probably forgotten/or never heard of Jem.

Before animation went crap.

Yuck

For some reasons, Jem and the Holograms was pretty good by the way. The animation looks good like Hanna-Barbara's Jossie and The Pussycats but has less qualities. But Cracked.com told me that this show has a lot of legal systems in the show. Such as getting someone hurt from an accident like bombing inside the restaurant, or just a skiing accident on unknown accidents. It's pretty interesting that this girl show has some weird legal systems by governments. Even The Holograms were confronted on the court (yeah, really weird to see a girly rock band posed on the court. See what Equestria Girls looked like at the court. "Screw you democrats, were musicians.")

It's just too rare for a girl show to see such a theory by Cracked.com, but it's the best for an underrated show with the most overrated live-action movie released in 2012.

46 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.

It has too much gross out humor. I preferred Rocko & Rugrats - AliciaMae

This show is one of the most poorly dated things ever.
People who defend this show usually do so because it's from the 90s and it's better than todays cartoons.
One of the reasons they say the shows from today aren't as good is because "todays shows have too much gross out and torture humor" when Ren and Stimpy had the same stuff.
Seriously, stop comparing this show to modern shows, because it's no better.

This show just paved the way for a lot of crappy and gross shows that have come out now. I can't watch it now without thinking that it spawned a lot of stupid and disgusting shows that have came out.

It wasn't my favorite show and it did inspire a lot of the weirder, stupider shows that have come out now. This just proves that sometimes influence isn't really a good thing.

I so agree. I hated this overrated boring show even as a kid, and the fact that they're now making a live action movie out of it is even more absurd. I just hope I never have to lay my eyes on those ugly babies ever again.

People actually like this? I don't know about them but I found this show to be ugly and boring.

This show is honestly a lot worse than I remember.

More like Rugbrats! This is the most overrated show ever! Most of these 90's cartoons are overrated, but this one is the most. Also, the fan theories are so stupid. Then again, of them are.
