Most Overrated Cartoonsafex
The Top Ten
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!
I used to be a brony, but I converted to the LazyTown fandom after Imsaw how much cringe I was inhaling.V 115 Comments
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.
The show itself is fine, but the fandom is just as annoying as the Frozen fandom. People say this is the best show to ever air on Cartoon Network, but for me it doesn't come close to Ed, Edd n Eddy, Johnny Bravo, Samurai Jack, The Powerpuff Girls (Original, not the crappy reboot), etc. - Disneykid00V 90 Comments
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!
Dude I don't think you know what the word "overrated" means. LOOK IT UP. But I agree that modern episodes are awful. - TristGamer
Nickelodeon keeps pushing this one because a third of their profits comes from it. They wanna keep it running forever. They never want SpongeBob to end. It's WAY past its time and it needs to end now so we can enjoy the past. But it will have to end one day, and I'll be waiting. And waiting.
No, TWO thirds of their profits come from the show. Also, they don't let us enjoy because they rarely play episodes in seasons 1-5. - Goatworlds
Can't stand him at all, needs to be cancelled so badly. It's not funny, it's making kids behave badly and again like Pokemon, it's ruined SATURDAY MORNING T.V.!
Its getting a lot betterV 65 Comments
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.
I feel like this show is overrated cause everyone worships it but all it's just a rip off from the Simpsons. They go a little to far in some episodes as well
The only reason I chose this show is because one time I someone said there was something wrong with me for liking The Simpsons more than this. This show is very funny, but it isn't that great on almost every other level. The characters are either forgettable or unlikable, the story's are lazy, and the pacing is rarely good (usually it is either sporadic or just stops) and that was when it was at its best. Nowadays it is one of the least likable shows on T.V. , with easy to hate characters, offensive and manipulative stories and occasionally horrible morals, but even when it was decent it was overrated.
When even Seth Macfarlane, the show's creator, said he wished it had died a long time ago, you know something's wrong with the show. - ColdTurkeyV 30 Comments
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.
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
It actually gets a TON of hate nowV 60 Comments
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!
This show is pretty much an overlay that tries to cover the rest of Disney Channel's unwatchable programming. And even then, it's still a very hard show to watch. I made a 2 page review on the show already on another blog, so here's a short summary.
The voice acting is annoying, the plot is monotonous, there are way too many songs, the characters are 1/2 dimensional, the designs are offputting, and it's EVERYWHERE!
Animation is just weird. You don't need talent to make cartoons nowadays but I think that began with Ren and Stimpy.V 32 Comments
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.
This is a successful show. It has a good plot, characters, and its not the slightest bit annoying. Who doesn't like a mystery show? It ended at a good time to, they found Stan's brother, Defeated Bill Cypher, and got back home when the summer ended. It's really the only good Disney show. - SeeU
I know I will get thumbs down for this but what the hell. I mean, yeah the fan base can get out of hand. But this show itself is outstanding. I bet half thd people here or more have only seen the first couple episodes or commercials. It's so amazing, mysterious, and is my most favorite show of all time! I'm still upset that it ended. You can hate it if you want, that's fine, it's your opinion.
This show is great, but BY FAR it is overrated. On the best cartoons list, it's number 4. OVER SOUTH PARK AND AVATAR. What - DrawboxV 38 Comments
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
I don't hate it but I just couldn't get into this show, I don't hate it, it just never appealed to me. I really wanted to like it but I found myself bored and kept a straight face while watching what are considered to be the best episodes of this show. - PeeledBananaV 16 Comments
Why are they still making these spin-offs with different names in the Pokemon series? Also, why is Ash still a kid who hasn't aged into an adult? This show is getting boring and boring every single time! Arrghh!
Too many seasons, no new ideas. But you have to give them credit for working on it so hard. I have to admit, I do still occasionally arch it from time to time.
Like others have said. This show used to be awesome but has become diluted over the many years and is now mundane and quite boring with little to no innovation or character development.
Oh my god I just love it. It should be number one. Pokemon is just the best. I love the x and y region. It's so uniqueV 28 Comments
This show is really good, not overrated
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.
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
I LOVE THIS SHOW AND IT SHALL BE REMEMBERED, IT MADE SO MANY PEOPLE LAUGH - BramblestarV 27 Comments
What a very boring show. - PerfectImpulseX
Two words: Gay Parents. That is the ONLY reason fans and haters talk about this show. On its own, this show is not bad, but I do think it is overrated.
Dumbest show in the world I would like it if I didn't encourage gay
There isn't any likeable characters here - Frouze
How could this show have possibly overshadowed Harvey Beaks and post-sequel SpongeBob? It doesn't make any sense to me. In my opinion, the show is highly formulaic and the humor is very weak, compared to the 2 shows I mentioned. They say this show saved the network but how has Nickelodeon been saved when they are still:
- Cancelling their cartoons for not matching SpongeBob and this show in the ratings (just look at how they treated C.H. Greenblatt, creator of Harvey Beaks)
- Overrelying on their poorly-recieved sitcoms, SpongeBob, and The Loud House (and also Jojo Siwa now)
- Still trying to be hip with the kids (The Dude Perfect Show, for example) and more...
Yes, Nickelodeon has improved somewhat but not a whole lot has changed and if anything, my first point was actually made worse by The Loud House. Nickelodeon now believes that as long as they overpromote a show and give it a late afternoon premiere week, like they did with The Loud House, it will ...more
I don't think it's overrated if lots of people hate it. Besides I think this show is a gem, but that's just my opinion.
Shows like South Park, Family Guy, and American Dad just prove that "adult" animations really have nothing to offer outside of constant sex jokes and cussing, which is actually just really childish when you really think about it
Internet logic: Family Guy sucks because it's nothing but gross out, Toilet, and shock humor. Also Internet Logic: South Park is one of the best shows ever because it's nothing but Gross out, toilet, and shock humor.
Let's make them make fun at canada for at least 12 seconds on EVERY EPISODE PRODUCED AFTER THE MOVIE! - Maddox121V 17 Comments
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.
This show needs to die fast... And I mean fast. The characters in it are ### jerks and the episodes are completely trash and angry disappointments. Now as another factor is that they shove this crappy show in are faces with lousy commercials 24/7 about it being what they call
Although it is sometimes funny, it is otherwise overrated. Adventure Time is awesome and deserves to be overrated!
Overrated? Nah it's overhated - TherealSlim_ShadyV 50 Comments
Why is this here? It's a funny show with good characters, great animation, and incredible potential.
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.
Very lazy animation style that just does not appeal to me at all combined with a annoying whiney kid as the main character, a freaky old man who is a rejected copy cat cousin of Doc Brown. Need I say more?
This shows awesome, not overratedV 1 Comment
This Show Actually Isn't That Bad. I Actually Kinda Like The Show. But Even I Agree That This So Is A Bit Overrated.
This show is the worst show ever it rips off other cartoon characters like adventure time and regular show and this show is lazy fans say it's not because their fans of this show I mean seriously if you don't think this show is lazy than to see the point a banana as a character a balloon as a character a piece of bread as a character that's lazy you idiots they even didn't brother to draw their own art style of this cartoon gumball is a rip off character to Katy kat from parappa the rapper video game series
This is in my opinion the best show on cartoon network currently, due to its innovative animation style and great plot ideas.
This show is awesome, but I agree it IS overrated! - BacklegoplanesProductionsV 23 Comments
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.
. . . it's senseless and frying kids' brains
In the new version, Ben looks more like a 7 year old than a 10 year old. - PopsiclesV 7 Comments
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
I get that Scooby Doo has been a successful animated franchise that has been known one of the most iconic American cartoons of all time, but come on! Why couldn't they just leave the original series alone and let it be remembered as a classic? There are so many fresh new original ideas for cartoons nowadays such as Rick & Morty and Steven Universe, so why does Scooby Doo all of a sudden continue to wander around like a zombie and make attempts to keep the franchise alive when no one cares about Scooby Doo anymore? Let's face it, with the exception of What's New Scooby Doo, there has never actually been a good Scooby Doo remake. The franchise is so overrated and it really needs to die, but sadly Hannah-Barbara and Warner Bros. seem to be completely obsessed with Scooby Doo's successful marketing campaign :( - Disneykid00
Whoever put this here, I think you're looking for Scrappy Doo.V 13 Comments
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 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.
Why does everyone hate it? Idiots! - XpizzamanXxV 7 Comments
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.
