21 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

Dumbest show in the world I would like it if I didn't encourage gay

I like this show. It's not incredible or anything, but it's a pretty well-written show with even a few decent morals for younger viewers.

The gay couple doesn't really bother me to be honest, they don't really rub in your face the fact that there's a gay couple and they're secondary characters anyway. - Garythesnail

22 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

23 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

24 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?

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

. . . need I say more? IT SUCKS!

I love it... - XpizzamanXx

25 The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. more.

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.

Wow this show is overrated but it isn't bad!? I mean season 5 and 6 were awkward and were not so good but I wouldn't really put it at the top 20 probably near the top 30 or 40. - spodermanfan1000

If we talk about the old one, I'm fine...but if you say the reboot...better forgive it. - Loosername

So overrated, it is.

The show was... like... UHGG!

27 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

It's overrated because it's not as hated as it should be.

It's the worst nick show, but I don't see how its overrated.

Even More Overrated Than Sanjay & Craig.

Hated by everyone. - DCfnaf

28 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

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

30 Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-Head is an American animated sitcom created and designed by Mike Judge. The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge originally aired on Liquid Television.

There is nothing to like about this show.

What is with the animation

31 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". more.

Guys, Anime shows ARE cartoons. In fact, one the Japanese words for cartoon IS "Anime" ( it's short for "Animation"). The people who keep saying that animes are not cartoons honestly need to do their research.

I have a friend with a photo of this in his tablet, and every time he opens it, this shows, and he used to be in front of me, so I got a lot of cancer. - Loosername

This is an anime series! There is already a list for overrated anime series on this website. Anime belongs nowhere on this website!

Even if the anime is overrated, anime should not be on this list!

32 Powerpuff Girls Z Powerpuff Girls Z

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

The Reboot is more overrated, this is just plain forgotten and bizarre. - Loosername

Just a dumb anime

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

33 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.

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

So a show that brings nostalgia to a lot of people is somehow overrated? - Randomator

34 Scooby Doo

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

It is not that popular, I know it has its love, but at least it has a stable fandom. - Loosername

35 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


36 Jem

Before animation went crap.

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.


37 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.

38 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

39 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

Still better than some modern cartoons such as Teen Titans Go and Uncle Grandpa. - Skullkid755

Not quite as great as I remembered them. - Darkusmaximus
