Top 10 Most Overhated Pre-School Shows


The Top Ten

1 Sofia the First Sofia the First Sofia the First is an American computer-animated television series that features a commoner joining the royal family as a princess.

That because it's so increditly annoying.

Why do people think this is a "baby show" without actually watching it? It was originally made for Disney Channel themselves, who rejected it for more tweencoms. Craig Gerber had to work really hard to put the show's sequel, Elena of Avalor, onto Disney Channel, and that worked so well that more cartoons were added to Disney Channel. - mimitchi33

2 Blaze and the Monster Machines Blaze and the Monster Machines

I'm tired of people saying that this is a rip off of Cars for an excuse of hating it. THEY HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PLOTS! - TimmyTurner

This is a rip-off version of Cars!

Ths show ripped off Cars which is a good pixar movie because it's so unoriginal and modern! I hate this show! Modern day Nick Jr. sucks!

So, the dogs talk and save people of stupid disasters that could be easly solve by REAL emergency personal. The only thing special is the gear they have... and how the hell a couple of dogs have acess to that gear instead of the military?! And saving a chicken of a roof... Avoid it!

Even Jimmy Kimmel likes this show and went to one of the live shows! I also see many adult fans who love Skye. - mimitchi33

Too overhated. It gets bashed on this site so much... - PeeledBanana

Relly overhated especily at my school

I never saw this when I was younger - PeeledBanana

I don't hate it, it gets too much hate

17 Thomas & Friends Thomas & Friends Thomas & Friends is a British children's television series. In the United Kingdom, it had its first broadcast on the ITV network in Great Britain in 1984.

No one hates this show I mean come on the original series in 1984 Ringo Starr was the storyteller.

Almost everyone loves this show even the people who hate Caillou, Barney and Dora the explorer

18 Blue's Clues Blue's Clues Blue's Clues is an American children's television series that premiered on Nickelodeon in 1996. Producers Angela Santomero, Todd Kessler, and Traci Paige Johnson combined concepts from child development and early-childhood education with innovative animation and production techniques that helped their more.

This show isn't overhated or Thomas the Tank Engine.

22 Teletubbies Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Called alien-monkeys, demons, aliens. Actually they are astronauts. Its friendship, peace and happiness. The sun baby is not a god. Let the little ones use their imagination.

The only preschool show that scared me was Zzzap! Teletubbies were cute not scary. Young kids love bright colour.

I love Teletubbies, which isn't really much of a surprise. From what I've heard, the show developed a cult-audience under the form of teenagers who were surprised by how bizarre and weird this show was in their viewpoint. I guess that's where the hate comes from. Also, this show was only hated to further poke on Disney1994, which was pretty immature to be honest.

Or maybe pre-school shows are hated because, bandwagoning I guess... - CrimsonShark

23 The Magic Roundabout

Maybe its overhated with the American movie Doogal.

Another retro French show that is too great to be restricted to young children that needs to be on this list for its three-dimensional animation and positive morals is Babar. It is so much better than many of these pre-school shows on this list. Believe it or not, Sofia the First is actually a cult from people such as AniMat, PhantomStrider and so forth.

24 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is an American computer-animated interactive children's television series which aired from May 5, 2006, to November 6, 2016. The series, Disney Television Animation's first computer animated series, is aimed at preschoolers.

Agreed it gets too much hate

26 Tots TV

This show was cute, like Rosie and Jim. Wouldn't you love to live in a cottage like theirs? except its derelict now, well it finished in 1998. But why did Tilly speak in Spanish in America? Why did they bother airing it in America if they would change her speaking French to Spanish. Sorry this was the show I wanted to learn French from when I was three years old.

27 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

It shouldn't be overhated it's so made for pre-schoolers I mean look at the animation the main character Peppa looks like something a pre-schooler would draw.

39 Postman Pat Postman Pat
40 Fireman Sam

They wanted Firefighter Sam.
I bet they really want Firefighter Samantha.
Peppa Pig was also with episode The Fire Engine.. oh no not firemen.

Not Thomas the Tank Engine, that was labelled sexist in series four (1994-1995) and motor car Caroline, Nancy and the Refreshment Lady from the original Railway Series books came to series four.


Extreme feminists you should not be offended by the word Fireman.
You give feminism a disgusting name.
