Most Overrated Kids Shows


The Top Ten

1 Adventure Time 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 more.

This show isn't the best show ever or anything like that. The characters can be annoying at times. But I don't know why people hate it. It is not a ripoff if super Mario bros or legend of Zelda. This show is kind of underrated not overrated. My question is, why do people hate adventure time?

Yeah adventure times too overrated in fact when it started airing on abc3 they're like "they're here! " "jake the dog! " "finn the human! ". - coolguy101

Are you stupid? A damsel in distress it's called! Not called 'a Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda ripoff'. Get real. - EmperorCales

You do realize that Adventure Time didn't do that formula but used the Zelda formula instead - Hoxton

The show becomes great after the second season, if you haven't seen those, I understand this placement. - kempokid

Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and more.

I like this show, but it's EXTREMELY overrated.

There are tons of shows way better than this trash! You people have no taste at all!

Man I hate this show. I might be forced to see the new Equestria Girls movie because of my little sister. - EpicJake


3 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

How can it be overrated if everyone I know already hates it?

4 Clarence Clarence Clarence is an American animated television series created by Skyler Page for Cartoon Network. The series revolves around a young boy named Clarence and his two best friends Jeff and Sumo. Page, a former storyboard artist for Adventure Time and revisionist for Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, developed more.

Clarence definitely is stupid and idiotic. Adventure time is overrated as well

Yeah I Know. This Show Is So Boring. I Can't See Why So Many Kids Like It When It's Not Even That Entertaining.

Very few people like it

5 Barney and Friends Barney and Friends Barney & Friends is an American children's television series aimed at children from ages 1 to 8, created by Sheryl Leach and produced by HIT Entertainment. It premiered on PBS on April 6, 1992. The series features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational more.

This show is VERY overrated. Barney is an idiot who is nice on the outside, but is evil on the inside. It only teaches kids that if you see a dinosaur, always play Ring around the Rosie with it. - EpicJake

Yeah and his mouth moves and eyes close without maneuvering them with hands. It teaches kids how to play with a dangerous but cute dinosaur by playing ring around the rosie.

Barney Is Not Overrated, Because Everyone Hates Him. People Really Need To Understand That Overrated Does Not Automatically Mean The Show Sucks It Would Just Mean It Gets Too Much Praise.

I wonder why Barney survived the extinction. And the kids, who I think are 10-12 years olds, act like toddlers, and play stupid games with their "friend" Barney. Like they’re under a spell to keep them loyal to Barney. And Baby Bop is a whiny little brat like Caillou and BJ is just stupid. And don’t even get me started on Riff. Barney’s songs are ear-bleeding and repetitive, especially the I Love You Song. Barney is super fat and has a stupid voice. He also sings off-key. Glad this show got taken out of schedule. And glad this show's rerun plans got canceled. ~Violet Moon

6 Arthur Arthur Arthur is a Canadian/American animated educational television series for children, created by Cookie Jar Group and WGBH for PBS.

I love arthur it's the best PBS show ever! Except the new ones! 😰

7 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2015) is an American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.

Well If She's SO Overrated Then How Come She's The Most Hated Cartoon Character Of All Time? Care To Explain?

I hate her. I'm glad this show will be canceled in 2015. She is a blindy. She says swiper no swiping. - EpicJake

8 PAW Patrol PAW Patrol PAW Patrol is an Canadian animated television series created by Keith Chapman. It is produced by Spin Master Entertainment with animation provided by Guru Studio. In Canada, the series is primarily broadcast on TVOKids, which first ran previews of the show in August 2013. The series first aired on Nickelodeon more.

I have no idea why so many people like it. Almost everyone I know loves it and calls it the best show ever. It's a preschool show. Also, if you look hard at it, you'll find it has poor morals too.

Yes, it should be number 1, Adventure Time doesn't get enough love

This should be 1. It's a terrible show that gets overrated a lot

Too overrated

9 Teen Titans Go! Teen Titans Go! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television more.

There are a bunch of shows aimed at really little kids above this and shows that almost no one considers good. Why? They aren't necessarily bad, it's just that they're aimed at 3-year-olds. On the other hand, you have Teen Titans Go! This show is an abomination. It's unfunny and tailored towards brain-dead kids with extreme ADD. CN has given it multiple seasons and it appears to be one of their most popular shows. It would be fine for most people if it was just some stupid show, but this is taking a beloved show, and stabbing it repeatedly with a rusty knife. An abomination that many people consider good for some inexplicable reason deserves to be higher than a mediocre show almost nobody considers good. - ILegitMakeLists

This show is terrible! It was supposed to be aimed at little kids, until they made a not so subtle sex joke, now little kids are scarred.

Hate It! Needs To Be Worse Than Adventure Time!

It sucks. The end.

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.

This show is genuinely magnificent. The problem is that the first 19 episodes make me want to watch uncle grandpa or Clarence. Since people usually start from the beginning of a series, it is extremely easy to see why people say that this show is awful. - kempokid

Why Would Someone Even Dare To Add This Show On The List? Just... Why?

This show is awesome

This show is meh but overrated. - GravityFallsAndWBBLover18

18 React to That React to That

This is one of the most overrated shows because it's stupid and it's based off of YouTube Kids React, which led to the show ruining the station and it's fans, it sucks.

19 SpongeBob SquarePants

I agree, its pretty overrated and I hate the show.

Adventure Time is overrated, but THIS ONE is WORSE! The fanbase is annoying, the plot is repetitive and the characters are awful. This is probably the most annoying cartoon ever made, even if there is other cartoons that are worse (Robot Chicken and Johnny Test, I am watching you! ) - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

So true
