Most Overrated Cartoons

21 Naruto Naruto Naruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series more.

This show is not "bad" albeit definitely in the mediocre category especially when compared to other anime.

Anime, not cartoon. And I don't care if people say "anime IS a cartoon". They're always wrong.

I don't why people concider it best anime off all times, its filler catastrophy.


22 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to sum up several Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), “Digimon 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.

Honestly, the Digimon anime/cartoon is better than the Pokemon anime/cartoon, at least from my opinion/point of view.

strange because I'm a pokemon fan and don't know anything about digimon, was forced to watch digimon cartoon/anime when I was younger because my siblings always hog the T.V. - Lunala

23 Powerpuff Girls Z Powerpuff Girls Z

Wait how is this overrated? I never really heard of anyone I know that likes this show.

Just a dumb anime

I only watched this on YT, Its nothing like the original. At least it better than the re boot - SeeU

Daviddizor used girls from Powerpuff Girls Z as parody characters instead of the original Powerpuff Girls. >:(

24 Dragonball Z Dragonball Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable more.

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?

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

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

How many "ultimate forms" do these guys have?!?

25 Almost Naked Animals Almost Naked Animals Almost Naked Animals is a Canadian animated television series that is produced for YTV. The series premiered on January 7, 2011 on YTV.

Dear GOD, this is a hideous Canadian cartoon show.

So You're Telling Me This Hideous Piece Of Trash Is Better Than Adventure Time & Family Guy & South Park & Gravity Falls & Regular Show? What? This List Is Wrong! And Lots Of People Will Agree.

Just from the name I know it is horrable


26 Chowder Chowder Chowder is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Cartoon Network. The series follows an aspiring young child named Chowder and his day-to-day adventures as an apprentice in Chef Mung Daal's catering company.

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?

. . . need I say more? IT SUCKS!

Nothing wrong with it for me :3

I love it... - XpizzamanXx

27 The Loud House The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. more.

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.

There isn't any likeable characters here - Frouze

I like the show but I agree it's overrated - SushigirlO6

I like it - XpizzamanXx

28 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 hate this show! It's so cheesy! I mean, look at the animation and characters and stuff! Watching this show makes me want to 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! - XpizzamanXx

29 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of short films created in 1940, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

What are you talking about? Jerry doesn't always win. Sometimes Tom wins or they both win or both lose. Jerry doesn't win in every episode

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

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

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

I see a lot of people defending this cartoon because it was part of their childhood. Well, to me this show is sadism at its finest, with that stupid mouse taking pleasure in beating out of the poor cat. I hate it.

Well if you were a small mouse getting chased by a cat, what would you do? - PeeledBanana

30 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

Total Drama deserves to be cancelled. It's a rip off of Survivor and The Amazing Race. It's really stupid. The voice actor for the host,(I don't know his name :P) shouldn't be voice acting on such a stupid show! - SeeU

31 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese more.

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.

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

This is honestly overrated. People just like it because it's drawn in anime style, and the closest they can get to an anime. Seriously, there are so-called "anime fans" who think this is an anime. ITS NOT. Aang is annoying. Everyone is a jerk. That's all I'm gonna say besides that the fanbase is horrible. You can't say any show is better or else they'll get mad. I hate this show.

This is my favorite show and I do not claim this is an anime, because it's NOT an anime, it's better than every anime ever created, it's an american cartoon. - PeeledBanana

It's good in my opinion but the fans are annoying and they need to stop the shipping.

32 The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is an American animated television series created by Thurop Van Orman for Cartoon Network that premiered in North America on June 5, 2008. It stars creator Thurop Van Orman as the voice of Flapjack, a naive young boy who was raised by a whale named Bubbie and more.

WHY IS SHOW SO LIKED?! Have you even seen any of the episodes? They're horrifying! Especially that gray cat with no eyes in one episode. 0.0

Just like Chowder. Loud, unnecessary and disgusting.

There was a time when I watched this show. I loved it. should be #9999999...

33 Pokemon Chronicles

This is a horrible show. It's overrated and it's the show that killed toonami.

It's not overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

34 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.

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

This should be above Avatar.

36 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

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

Why when everyone says it's overrated they mention the characters they don't like from the show? Just because you don't like a certain amount of characters in the show, it doesn't mean it's overrated if someone does. This show isn't overrated because everyone gives the same reason about why its overrated which is not liking a certain bit of characters. Read legion1979's tumbr page about the show and you wouldn't think it's overrated because all the characters did have potential (except Katie ka Boom and Minerva Mink). - mrcoolface

Funny for little kids.

37 Invader Zim Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

This show is pretty adorable if you think about it; The only reason people even watch it is because of GIR, he took all of the credit for the entire thing (including the evil laugh, what people!? ) - InvaderRailfanPokeNerd578

Invader Zim is a great show but it's very overrated because of all the Gir fans. Without Gir, this show would be overrated. Other characters need some love, like Dib. Now who wants to give Dib a hug? - lelennyface

This show is underrated, if anything. I like the humor, the characters, and recently the comic books came out so I've been reading that too. All the characters may seem like jerks,but deep down they're just doing what they think is good (Dib thinks he has to protect the Earth, and ZIM wants to please his masters so he can be respected like he wants).

No. This show is awesome.
-Zim: My favorite character, and a great protagonist A+
-GIR: A great comic relief A-
-Dib: The smart exception to an actual WORLD of idiots! A+
-Gaz: The only main character I don't like that much. C-
Animation: A combination of 2D and 3D, and it looks good!
Music: Dark and Mysterious. Like Gravity Falls
Writing: It is creative! The can make an entire episode about Zim eating waffles and it's better than the ENTIRE Pickle and Penaut series!

38 Rugrats Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

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.

This show isn't that good just little cute even though the babies are ugly

Am I the only one who hates this show?

I agree with Angelica. They really are dumb, stupid babies!

39 Tiny Toon Advantures

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

40 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer is an 2000 American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner.

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.

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

Dora was my childhood. I watched her from a kid to second grade, then after I hated her. - SeeU

Yeah, I was guessing you would hate Dora because you don't like musicals. - Trollsfan536

Toddlers love it, people past that age hate it.
