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!
Did they even try on this show? No. They just ripped Off if other shows. They ripped off of Pokémon cards too.V 122 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.
Does even someone sees this crap? I'm only in it for the Princess Bubblegum porn ¬ω¬

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.
The Simpsons > Family guy
The Simpsons’ worst > Family guy’s best - Randomator
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
I have to admit, this show is really funny and the underwater setting is awesome. But I never found it that entertaining to me. It does have it's awesome episodes and it's jokes are good, but I never understood how it got so popular and loved. Really badass Nickelodeon shows like Invader Zim and Avatar never got as much attention as boring old Spongebob did.
Season 1-3 are pure Cartoon awesomeness
Season 4 is kinda boring
Season 5 is alright
Season 6-7 are horrid
Season 8-9 are so boring
And Season 10-11 starting to get better
I think SpongeBob's getting better it better not get cancelled.
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
The characters are unlikeable and the art style is bad.V 67 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!
Perry is the only good thing about the show - RandomatorV 34 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.
Arguably the most popular show on Disney Channel. It might be overrated but it’s one of the best shows that is actually watchable on Disney Channel these days - RandomatorV 40 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
The Simpsons will only go downhill if it ends up like Family Guy. More rude. But maybe Maggie should have some talking episodes.V 20 Comments
Is everybody retarded? This show is a masterpiece! If you think it's unfunny, then you have a terrible sense of humor and you don't know actual comedy. If you think it's pointless, then you just don't understand it, because South Park uses dark humor the right way, teaches morals and lessons that people normally don't talk about. South Park is one of, if not the best television show ever created! - Fireboy
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
It's so retarded - RnBLoverV 19 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.
I used to like this show. BACK WHEN MISTY WAS STILL IN IT.
The fight scenes that aren't even cool... at all... and how they talk. ugh.
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
I hate ben 10 the first series are good. BUT alien force,ultimate alien,omniverse, and the reboot are awful
Why is this here? It's a funny show with good characters, great animation, and incredible potential.
I like this show, but the fans set me off. So I was watching PhantomStrider's video on best American cartoons. SVTFOE was an honorable mention. 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
It was actually good until they ruined it with Starco, now it's just generic trash.
Embarrassed to vote this brilliant show, but it is in NO WAY AT ALL overrated. It's a great show and appeals to adults and children. Best show to ever brace Cartoon Network!
Best show? You must be kidding me! I mean, the animation is ugly, the characters are a bunch of idiots and too stereotypical; One is dumb, the other is selfish and mean and the third one is the "clever" but weak one. - xXLittleQueensXx
This show is seriously so overrated and does NOT deserve to be cartoon's network's number 1 show. While theirs amazing masterpieces like The amazing world of Gumball and Steven Universe I see this garbage as number 1 show in Cartoon Network. And if any of you haters reply "Ugh I bet you've never even seen an episode", your wrong! I've seen over 10 episodes and even a bit of season 2 and I still don't get why people think this is brilliant. Sure it has some funny humour and relatable moments but 1. The animation is horribly ugly and a bit bizarre 2. The main characters are stupid, selfish, mean, weak and plain dumb 3. I HATE AND I MEAN HATE the Kanker sisters. There disgusting, dumb, ugly and INSANE! They have no purpose in the show except trying to kidnap and kiss the eds which is gross and not entertaining. 4. Other than the actual funny humour the other humour is gross and mostly about underwear. 5. WHAT IS THE PLOT HERE? The eds trying to trick money off people to buy a couple of ...more
Disgusting animation, horrible characters, and horrible writing! Why do people like it so much? Nostalgia? - MistyMay113
This show was great but some vicious haters said that the show has character designs are ugly, disgusting animation, annoying characters, and some negative opinions.
Those who hate the show probably watched Brothers Grunt. What is Brothers Grunt?
It's a show that aired on MTV and it's one of Danny Antonucci's bad work before creating a masterpiece called Ed, Edd, and Eddy.
Brothers Grunt is really a horrendous, God-Know-It-All, disgusting, Chutulu-sized cartoon show that is really hard to watch. The character designs are so ugly, terrible animation, the characters are annoying, terrible writing, and so on. This Brothers Grunt does'nt deserved to be on air but I'm glad this beast was slayed by a sword (or cancelled for short).
Ed, Edd, and Eddy is one of the best cartoon shows of all time and the sixth CN show to be produced (and a last cartoon that is made with cel animation before that digital ink and paint existed). This show has great humor, great ...more
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 is in my opinion the best show on cartoon network currently, due to its innovative animation style and great plot ideas.
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
Whoever said that Gumball is a rip-off of Katy Kat must be out of their mind! Sure look similar but personality-wise (which is what matters) they are extremely different! Gumball is more of a troublemaker but Katy Kat is loyal. My best guess to why they said that is that they're a troll trying to get people upset! Also the person who said that had really bad grammar! I am from Saudi Arabia and I know how to speak English better than that!
by the way: I am a Muslim!
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.
Well, I kinda like this show back in the day but now it's just plain weird with Flash animation and repetitive jokes. The show was just overrated according to some haters in the list but let me say that this show did portrayed child abuse in a cartoon. Why? I'll explain.
Well, this show is about a 10-year-old name Timmy Turner who gets abused by a babysitter. By the help of his fairies, he must make fun stuff yet solving some problems made by Timmy. And the show have some consequences at the end (at least Timmy have a happy ending [or not]). The show have the same plot over and over again like Phineas and Ferb but it's not that repetitive. It's also known for changing the show'a theme and genre in every episode (or every scene in one episode. Hehe!), such as sci-fi, action, and so on. The recurring theme was fantasy.
And let's talk about what I say: child abuse. Yeah, I never thought that my childhood was ruined when this show portrayed about child abuse for crying out ...more
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.
To the person who mentioned winx club thanks I love it and it barely gets mentioned also this is an anime not a cartoon. Why do so many people put anime on cartoon lists?! And digimon is a rip-off of Pokémon. A pathetic. Who cares if dogimon can talk Pokémon make cute or cool sounds.V 9 Comments
As far as I know this is a list about overrated CARTOONS not ANIMES!
I totally agree, but first of all, it's called "anime", not "animes". After all, there is already a list for overrated anime series on this website already, so what's it doing here?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I've never watched Naruto. I heard it's good so I might try it someday. 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. BUT I'm not hating, and I'm not calling either shows bad or overrated. It's just what I've seen. - TheAlbinoWolf
Sorry but in my opinion Anime is still a cartoon, just from another country. Its nothing special.
Anime is still cartoon. And everyone at my school obsesses over this show. Can't see why. - naFrovivuSV 13 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!
Not overrated by the people,but SUPER DUPER EXTREMELY overrated by cartoon network.V 57 Comments
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
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.
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?
More like Fake Boy and Dumb Dumb to me! Whoever created this show must be high on crack!
It is better than Breadwinners, though worse than the new seqsons of Spongebob. - LoosernameV 19 Comments
