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

Someone replied to someone's comment here saying that you should die if you like this show. Geez I hate haters. But seriously, this show is not a Mario or Zelda rip off, it gained INSPIRATION from Dungeons and Dragons - 445956

2 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic 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 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

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.

Right on it. BUT NO! POOP! Ripped my shirt more often. Ripped the top of Caillou on the list.

6 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

7 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.

Every where you look you can't escape them. Their merchandise is EVERYWHERE!

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

You guys ready for a rant about this show, here’s Top 5 Reason's Why Paw Patrol is Extremely Overrated:

1. The only thing I could compare this to outside of kids shows is Fortnite, because almost every little kid is obsessed with it (I didn’t mean all of them)

2. Everywhere, every time and Every Place, you can’t escape these dogs. You probably seen kids with Paw Patrol t-shirts and Paw Patrol related merchandise, so you’re probably stuck with them for the rest of your life.

3. What’s so special about dogs saving the day? Nothing! And yet little kids praise it even though the plot is bland and the characters are... eh.

4. The animation is way too simple for its praise, kids act like it’s made by Pixar when it’s not. (In fact it reminds me of Illuminations)

5. Going back to #2, the animators are really greedy and don’t put effort into animating, they only want money for merchandising. I’m pretty worried that there might be a Paw ...more

He is so whiny. He throws temper tantrums over small things. - EpicJake

11 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

I haven't got round to starting the series yet, but it seems overrated. Overrated doesn't mean it's bad though. - EpicWingman

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

This show is awesome

Overrated because say one bad thing, fanboys will attack.

What the Fluffinscruff?

2. Nearly everyone on the internet is obsessed with this show, seriously according to wikipedia there is a television movie in the making.

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

27 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 .

Overhated not overrated! Because its too sweet, babyish. Teletubbies Everywhere which only had two series was the educational show playing with numbers, naming and simple logic, but shorter episodes and shorter series.

28 The Tom and Jerry Show The Tom and Jerry Show

This show ruined Tom and Jerry. - EpicJake

Have you ever noticed that this show is pretty much a rip off of Mickey Mouse.

No. This show is underrated.

Yes it is overrated. Everyone says how great it is. Come on a blue cartoon dog, Mr Salt and Mrs Pepper. Oh and kids DO NOT need to be educated from television shows. Stop bashing other toddlers shows because they are a bit silly (teletubbies) go on and all of the fanfictions are kill the teletubbies so the writers are basically sending death threats to the actors who played them. Maybe the girls who play the sun too. (original and new sun who is probably a toddler now)

32 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Silly, Violent, Unimaginative, and dated pop culture references. An old national survey showed 95% of grade school teachers could trace aggressive, anti-social behavior to them.

34 Winx Club Winx Club Winx Club is an Italian animated television series directed, created and produced by Iginio Straffi and his company Rainbow S.r.l.

35 Sesame Street Sesame Street Sesame Street is a long-running American children's television series, produced by Sesame Workshop and created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett.

Sesame Street has very, VERY annoying characters, such as Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Count Von Count, Mr Snuffleupagus, Abby Cadaby, Zoe, Rosita, and worst of all, ELMO THE RED DICKHEAD. The show was very babyish at the first place, but Elmo made the show FAR MORE BABYISH. Sesame Street has been running for 49 years. That is too long for a BABYISH SHOW. All the fans of the show are very very childish. They need to grow up. They are too old for Sesame Street, and it's all thanks to that little red disgrace named Elmo. All I've got to say about you Sesame Street fans is, grow up.

36 Girl Meets World Girl Meets World Girl Meets World is an American coming of age television sitcom. The series made its debut on Disney Channel on June 27, 2014.

41 Curious George Curious George Curious George is an American animated television series based on the children's book series of the same name which features Jeff Bennett as the voice of The Man with the Yellow Hat.

This is a story about me, Kevin, and Mika about this show and My Little Pony.
Last year in 2015, me, Mika, and Kevin were voting on what show to watch first. The voting was to ask the adults. Since Kevin was the youngest, he won. The episode of Curious George is the one I hated the most. Me and Mika went straight to the bathroom so we won't hear the episode. We posed in the mirror and said "Curious George is a bad, weird, overrated show. We wanna watch My Little Pony! " Then, when the episode was over, we watched My Little Pony.

Now, Kevin liked My Little Pony.
But Curious George and My Little Pony should switch places.

He is ruining the man in the yellow hats life with his stupid antics. Go back in the wild George. - EpicJake
