Top 10 Most Overrated American Cartoons

America you have so many overrated cartoons. Also Overrated means too popular not bad. So let the list begin.

The Top Ten

1 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

I absolutely love this show, but I cannot stand the fanbase, they act so selfish and demanding to the writers and then they make annoying versions of jokes that are moderately funny. I want the show to continue, but I want the fanbase to take it easy.

This just relies too much on gross out humor, excessive violence, and it "pop culture" callbacks. It's easily Adult Swims most overrated show, and it takes one too many hiatuses, which end up making its fanbase more rabid.

I hate this show. The characters are terrible, the plots are unoriginal, bad jokes, and sometimes it feels like they just try to fit the first take into the episode, with al the stuttering and random burping. And why do people call this smart?

The difference between the other 2 on the top 3 is that I just don't enjoy this show. I don't like the characters or basically anything about it.

2 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

There is a lot of flaws with Adventure Time, it's still an okay show to watch, but it's still really overrated. The biggest flaw is "hey let's have this one character, forget about him/her for a couple seasons and not see this character until the final season! "

Adventure time is a really terrible show. The worst on this list with steven universe a close second. Everything else is ok though

3 Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

Just when I thought no American cartoon could be more overrated than Adventure Time... Steven Universe isn't a bad show, but I heard the fandom is insane.

Incredibly overrated. Jeez okay I got it, it's a good show and I enjoy it but it like it's the second coming or anything! Adventure time is overrated too but justified more than this one.

Not a bad show, it is pretty good, but too overrated. I heard that a artist attempted to commit suicide because of all the hate from the Steven Universe fandom.

Steven Universe is overrated in YouTube, but it doesn't that it's a horrible show, it has a great story and awesome songs.

4 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. ...read more.

This show survived far longer than it should have. The SpongeBob that everyone talks about is the old SpongeBob from 12 years ago :/

It was good, what made it collapse was the departure of it's original creator, but then he came back, and the show's getting better.

This should have gone above Steven universe and adventure time. Aldo invader sim. SpongeBob gets way to much attention from nick and is the spoiled child of Viacom.

5 Family Guy

This show used to be very clever and funny, but then Seth McFarlane decided to cram his political agenda into every episode, go way overboard on the cutaway gags, and turn all the characters into one trait shells. - Jackamalio

Not to mention the sheer amount of shock humor there's been lately.

At should not be on here

6 Captain Planet and the Planeteers Captain Planet and the Planeteers is an American animated environmentalist television program created by Ted Turner and Barbara Pyle.

90s obsession?
Stop being so obsessed with a decade.

7 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver. Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and ...read more.

This is not a terrible show, but mediocre at best. I despise hearing fans gush over this like it is the only good show in the universe. give other cartoons some attention!

8 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

Gravity falls isn't overrated in my opinion. It's one of the best shows if not *the* best show on Disney right now. Definitely beats all the crappy sitcoms.

What do you mean it's not overrated. It IS overrated, the fanbase thinks it's created by God and can't handle criticism. The show is for little kids under the age of 12 anyways

Sitcoms look better than crude animation.

I kinda loved "Gravity Falls", but I don't like the fanbase.

9 King of the Hill King of the Hill is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels that ran from January 12, 1997 to May 6, 2010 on Fox.
10 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

I feel like it only exist to be racy and people love it. It's disgusting, the characters are all annoying and it looks horrible

My little sister thought this was a children's cartoon and watched it! It wasn't what she expected. But yeah, this is pretty overrated.

It's the greatest show ever it shouldn't be on here

I don't understand how this is so popular. It's not amazing and the graphics are a bit on the meh side.

14 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.

Overrated, no one on the internet ever likes to hear anything negative said about it. On the internet everyone is overprotective with this childhood memory.

The idiot who said this is underrated is wrong, This show is entirely overrated.

19 Loony Tunes

Who put this on here, it was one of the greatest cartoons of all time, everything about it was so unique and great.

Lmao "now its bland and lost its touch" Wrong. Maybe reboots of LT suck to you- (which I should point out are created by entirely different people- most of the old cast is dead) but a classic is a classic.

20 The Simpsons

The last episode should have aired like 20 years ago how is this show still on air. - DonCorleone
