Top Ten Reasons to Hate GoAnimate

The Top Ten

1 All they ever do is grounded videos

These are SO uncreative! UGHH! It's the same thing OVER and OVER and OVER! It's all: The kid cuts school and goes to Chuck-E-Cheeses, then his teacher finds out, THEN calls the kid's parents, THEN the kid gets "grounded grounded grounded" for a ridiculous amount of days! SERIOUSLY? And don't even get me STARTED on Punishment Days! They LITERALLY make their kid eat s***! THAT IS CHILD ABUSE! (Feels good to get that off my chest! )

You can't ground a kid for "6928732187329173 years".
They make the kids eat dog poop and send them to Hell.
If Dora's Parents get sent to jail by Dora and the police aren't convinced the parents are innocent, why do the parents SIMPLY WALK OUT OF THE JAIL in one of those crappy videos? They can't do that!
The logic in the videos is like the stuff Caillou's dad forces Caillou to eat on "Punishment Day" - The_Dragon

Agree! One thing they always do and I don't understand, They keep Pairing Dora and Caillou Together! Why!?! What's Next, are they gonna pair Barney and Strawberry Shortcake, then Arthur and Peppa Pig!?!

They make videos out of princess peach too, There needs to be law that prevents users from making videos or picture out of princess peach, and they should prevent them from saying anything bad about her

2 Dead meat videos

These kinds of videos are extremely stupid. - EpicJake

I made a video called "Behavior Card Day Goes Wrong" with no dead meat.

They're not even real for God's sake! We get grades, not color cards or other BS. Not to mention that the cards represent graduations, bring off school for a ridiculous amount of time as well as having detention and suspension for a very long time. First of, you can't graduate unless you reach the end of the school year, second, you can't sit in the detention for a long time doing nothing. To add insult to injury, some dead meat videos show pre schoolers and adults getting cards. Seriously, pre schoolers haven't started school yet while the adults are supposed to be working. No wonder these videos make no sense whatsoever. - AinezoChan

Then they insert two minutes of the teacher saying “OO” loudly with the fire + earthquake + red screen - Lunala

3 It is a waste of money

Premium costs WAY too much per MONTH!

The animation on GoAnimate makes the animation of Peppa Pig and 12 oz. Mouse look like the Cartoon Network Shows!

They will just get updated sooner - UntitledMan

Lunala, they are not kids, dumby

4 The grounded videos don't make sense

Still funny but sometimes don't make sense. For example, Caillou got grounded for 2 years for causing an earthquake, but got grounded for 10,000,000 years just for farting on the bus.

You're grounded, grounded, grounded, grounded for life. Go to your room now! That's makes no sense. - EpicJake

There are grounded videos that are nonsense. Getting a nightmare does NOT get you grounded.

I agreed, Caillou got arrested just for getting a math problem wrong. what...

5 It Is boringly generic and repetitive

If I watch two lockdown videos, the storyline and phrases would be exactly the same but different characters. I've heard "How dare you pull and hit your vocal chords to sound like the principal" in three different videos by three different people.

It is very bland to make those videos because there so cringe worthy - UntitledMan

It is bland boring and the characters look like Family Guy rejects - Cartoonfan202

Almost every single grounded video is very similar to another one. Goanimators also love using Caillou, so sometimes it gets boring seeing Caillou all the time. - MrLoser

6 Caillou's Dad is Really Harsh on Caillou in the GoAnimate Series

He grounds Caillou for stupid reasons like farting, breathing hard, losing a game, and sometimes no reason at all other than the enjoyment of him. Boris was never that mean in the actual Caillou series. - anonygirl

I actually do find that pretty depressing even though I didn't watch Caillou that much. - Murvine_Taylor

For example, in the punishment day videos, he assaults Caillou in very brutal ways. For example, he pulls out Caillou's cavities, makes him drink from an old dirty toilet, and even killing him. This is normal for OfficerPoop247, who likes the assaulting baby show characters!

He is such a bigger idiot than he was in the original cartoon, and he just won't shut up!

GoAnimate Boris is so obsessed with grounding and will keep saying random numbers and I will be like, "Can we get on with it? " This also applies to other grounding parents, but I think Boris is the worst. At least the canon Boris did not have a grounding fetish. - Murvine_Taylor

7 Punishment Days

I hate how the parents punish their own kids on those videos! Like making them eat crap, or worse, crapping on them!

Boris, in my opinion, gives out the worst punishments to Caillou. He even does it to Rosie in videos where she gets grounded instead of Caillou. - Murvine_Taylor

I hate them!

8 Cyber bullies

Yeah, I mean, people in the goanimate community are like 2 year olds who are always fighting and sending threats. - HoldenFanatic

GA is full of "Bad User" crap. - Lunala

Tons of cyberbullies there - Cartoonfan202

Warren did nothing wrong.

9 They always make grounded videos out of baby show characters like Dora, Caillou, and Little Bill

They even make fun of shows that are good for children like the Backyardigans, Sesame Street, Sofia the First, Blues Clues, Doc McStuffins, and many more, while I don't watch these shows, GoAnimate fans just make fun of every baby show they see.

I, be honest, am a Bubble Guppies fan (my opinion, please). and when someone makes fun of the show, I don't really care. But GoAnimate is wasting their time making stupid videos about a show the creators tried so hard on.

Baby shows may be terrible, but making grounded out of them is just getting old now. - anonygirl

10 The videos are not creative

They're always the same!

I might make movies that are like you see in theaters on this website

How a normal movie maker plans his movies: "Lets see... What should I do. Oh, I know! Let's do this random thing, and now to spend the next 53 minutes coming up with the greatest story ever! "

How a goanimate user plans their "animations": "Oh, I like this video, so I'm going to make the exact same video but with a different character."

Not just grounded videos, but there was this series called “Chomp Bro For Hire”, every time, Chomp bro is rude to the customers, One customers orders a ton. Another does not have the right amount of money, then they blame him. For hire videos are about as stupid and not creative as grounded videos. Also, they are crappy.

The Contenders

11 Some characters get grounded for coming in last at a race

Thought that was bad? Some videos involve characters being grounded for absolutely no reason other than the parent's enjoyment.

Getting grounded for coming in last is just as harsh as getting grounded for nothing at all. - anonygirl

The parents are trolls and the kids are rage people.

Its not wining that counts its how you play the game

*Burst into laughter* Really?! Wow... - NikoX

V 4 Comments
12 Sometimes people get grounded for nothing at all

This is especially bad in "Held Back" videos. The troublemakers just have to do ONE bad thing, no matter how small it is, and they get sent back to a smaller grade.

Like when Boris ate Caillou's lunch and put the contents on his pizza? - Goatworlds

Caillou why did you have a nightmare? That's it you're grounded Grounded for infinity years. - NikoX

There are videos called "Caillou gets grounded for no reason" where he gets grounded for NO REASON. I'm not joking. - Lunala

13 GoAnimators hate some TV shows just because those shows are for babies

That's all they ever hate, I've watched a video made by CollosalD which was called my top 20 hated characters, and 50% of it consisted of baby show characters! Even though I hate some baby shows in particular, GoAnimate should just hate on something else that is bad rather than just baby shows!

GoAnimators are just edgy 9 year olds trying to be big boys by bashing shows for little kids without any solid reasoning. They even hate on the GOOD ones. - Cartoonfan202

A lot of them even hate the good preschool shows like Sesame Street, Blue's Clue's, and Bear in the Big Blue House (and rant on it for no reason). - anonygirl

Now that little kid show hating thing is STUPID

14 Apologies are Never Accepted

Like why the hell would they not accept apalogies when they say sorry a lot?

15 Alvin Hung Alvin Hung Alvin Hung is the creator of the site known as "GoAnimate". He has gotten controversy for being greedy and removing many things on the site. He has gotten lots of hate from GoAnimators.

They are all making "Grounded" videos out of alvin hung. Hung is a real person, come on guys. And Hung could take down the entire of Goanimate if he wanted to. Won't be surprised if he takes Goanimate down because of little children using his software to make videos of Boris forcing Caillou to eat dog poop and videos of random Characters peeing all over the house while their dad is out (Actual videos.) - Lunala

I highly doubt that Hung will take down GoAnimate because of some Twerps are making some weird videos. He's basically making money off of it. Lol. - NikoX

Now he has a base of 2 year old fan boys like alan the video maker praising him for trashing go animate

At least there are no more grounded videos.

You cannot hate this dude,
I like goanimate but I don't like it when these users haves a fetish of grounding characters that I like,
He could have a alternative goanimate webpage that is just for fun like free to use and the other one for all that buisness and school. (No offense alvin hung)

16 Some videos are inappropriate

Yea. Such as guns and destroying places like Pizza Hut, Chuck E. Cheese's, Taco Bell, McDonalds, GameStop and more. I mean what?

Caillou pees laser on the teacher. - Chaofreaks1

Some swear, I cannot believe these are on YouTube Kids.

They swear so much - Lunala

17 They say "grounded" a lot

They do. It's a little annoying. for example, "Eric, you are grounded grounded grounded grounded grounded grounded for..." WE GET THE POINT!

Look, I get that the kid is getting grounded for doing something bad, but the parents shouldn't have to say "grounded" multiple times. They should only say it once... - EpicJake

"You're Grounded (x25) for 1234567890 Years, go to your room now! " Get the Picture!?

They say grounded 10000 times - Cartoonfan202

18 If you do something wrong, they could make a grounded video out of you

GoAnimate "Good" users in a nutshell... - EpicJake

That's so mean


19 The Rants

Most rants are based a show for young children. Even with a lot of stated reasons why it sucks, most Go users hate the show for the soul reason that "it's for babies". If you even comeback in the comments or say something positive about the thing being ranted on, get ready for a butt load of hate.

The only thing they rant on is "baby" shows. - EpicJake

If you comment and say I like the show he/she will make a grounded video of you.

Funny thing, it's always the same stupid reasons. And say nothing positive whatsoever.

20 The people who make the videos are mean

"Good" Users, There are no such Thing as Good Users! They are all Bad Users!

"Hello. Your video needs some original characters and plots instead of replacing Dora causes a Lockdown and it's storyline with Caillou causes a lockdown. Original videos are more entertaining an-" *comment gets spammed with immature hate*
*Beware of this User video of you made just because of your mature criticism* - The_Dragon

21 You have to pay to post a video on YouTube

I never had that issue. I only had to pay for the subscription. - Murvine_Taylor

22 Held back videos

It's just a person going from 12th grade getting held back to Preschool and eventually expelled. Even the slightest step in the wrong direction gets them sent back a grade. - thunderstar1124

Next; "They Ship Dora and Caillou Together", Please!

23 The voices of the characters sound like robots

I do text-to-speech because I don't have a microphone on my computer - mayamanga

They are robots... - Iamcool

The voices are so stupid

NotSmirks doesn't steal characters.

24 They don't use their imagination

They literally take other characters and plots from other "animations".

All they just do is this, get nuts! - UntitledMan

25 They hate Warren fans.

I hate Warren Cook, but his grounded videos are getting too overused. Sometimes these kids like to hate on Warren fans over an opinion. They deserve the right to have an opinion on a user. - ThePwoperMuser101

I get that Warren makes fake VHS openings, but you make EXECUTION videos out of him. That's just mean. Imagine if he did that to YOU. When the "Bad" users make videos out of "good" users, the "good" users go completely ballistic. And yet the "good" users still make execution, grounded, etc videos out of "bad" users. Seriously? - EpicJake

Warren did nothing wrong. Wardrobe Cooking is the worst character on uolliaC though.

Warren Cook does a lot more bad things then just VHS openings. He swears, watches porn, gets detention, gets suspension, and peed and pooped all over the house!

26 The users are wimps

Warren Cook type of stuff.

Like ya' know, also worst on google plus - UntitledMan

These users make "rants" on T.V. shows or users. These rants are one of the most lazy works I have ever seen! They go like this: X? More like Y. This thing sucks. Do you know who likes this show? (BAD PERSON/CHARACTER), Do you know who hates this show? (GOOD/PERSON CHARACTER). Screw (BAD THING), and screw (ANOTHER GOOD THING). (GOOD THING) is one trillion times better than (BAD THING). End of rant.

These good users that dislikes little kid shows are a bunch of stubbern mules,
not like me, I am not no mule

27 They ship Caillou and Dora together

I'm gonna tell you right now: Dora and Caillou are very unique from each other. Dora is a spanish speaking explorer, while Caillou is a 4-year-old brat whining a lot. So have your opinion and hate them both, but shipping them is just disgusting.

It looks more like Caillou is dating a male because the GoAnimate users are too lazy to make an accurate Dora Model!

Why does this pairing ever existed!?! Bad GoAnimate Users! Bad, Bad GoAnimate Users! Go Home and Never Ever Return!

More like Caillou x D.W read

28 Dora sounds like a teenager

They don't have good voices.

She even likes dating Caillou! That's Gross!

Dora is 7, not 15! You chewing Frick!

Dora is a teenager (15 years old) even though I hate Dora.

29 OfficerPoop247 is Selfish

OfficerPoop247 has very stupid and brutal videos. For example, Boris is a substitute teacher and he kills Caillou for spelling a word. Also, his punishment days involve punishments like drinking from a toilet that hasn't been flushed or cleaned in years, breaking his favorite things, and killing him. Who would find that funny? Oh yeah. Only OfficerPoop247 would.

He should get terminated from YouTube, he likes to abuse children!

You should watch the Isaac Anderson videos, they are worse, In one video Boris cut caillou dick off and eyes, ears, mouth, and his head

OfficerPoop247 did change her name to Go! Thug247 but he still
is so stupid because he likes child abuse. one time he make made this goanimate video called Caillou stops an atom bomb/grounded which the worse video I ever saw because you know why because I saw that boris and doris ground caillou because caillou save goanimate city by stopping the atom bomb and boris and doris just ground caillou for stopping the atom bomb which is basically a nuke

Nickelodeon should pull the plug on Breadwinners Right Now!

34 They like almost everything

I remember this one fellow who, once ANY type of animated movie came out, made by ANYBODY and of ANY quality, started milking the HELL out of that movie. - RoleplayerR

They even like garbage like Modern SpongeBob, Family Guy, Teen Titans Go, Sanjay and Craig, etc.

The Only thing they hate are Kids Shows, Justin Bieber, and Things that Most People Dislike. They Even like MLP! Depends on what Idiot. They'll Hate you if you don't have Same Opinion. - ChroniclerMan5

Exactly. They always tell you to "respect their opinion", and yet they don't respect yours. What a bunch of hypocrites. - EpicJake

They like Boomboxer and SuperMarioLogan too much! - UntitledMan

35 They Hate Baby Shows To Make Them Look Cool

Baby shows are here to let children learn (some), not being here to be made fun of. Plus, some of us have our favorite early childhood shows. Why make grounded videos out of them? Come on, guys! You know better than this! - HelloWhyImHere

Yeah like you shouldn't always or be like that at all times, because they're for education amd entertainment - DaWildJohanna80

Listen goanimators, you're a bunch of 11-12 freaks. you need to understand the real concept of kids shows. we have a lot of people here that are really cool to be around with and like some kids shows. but since you hate literally ALL these shows because of your award winning reason that ''it's for babies'', we all hate you.

36 They like Teen Titans Go

What did you expect? They like everything...

More Like Teen Titans No!

So, what does that have to do with goAnimate, just wondering... - NikoX

37 The "43 Chars" Videos are Not Funny

These users are trying to make these "NotSmirks like" videos then make Caillou or Warren say things like "my butterfinger", " 43 chars nooo", "papa m", etc. Bart Sampson is a ripoff of Bart Simpson that everyone praises for saying " my Butterfinger" and making them laugh and say " XDD SO FUNNY! "

38 They pronounce Caillou's name wrong

That's because the text-to-speech voices can't really pronounce the name. Just say, "Kai you" and it will sound correct. - mayamanga

Well I wouldn't blame this on creators... The blame is more on the voices that Go! Animate provides.

"K-Loo" doesn't make sense at all. - EpicJake

Even worse, they also pronounce Chara (Undertale) her name wrong - UntitledMan

41 GoAnimate fans calling themselves "animators" just because they use GoAnimate

Animators are people who create their own work, as in draw their own characters or work on models for their own skits and animate off that. However, with this type of thing, the characters and animations are previously drawn by others. Not to mention they copy and paste google images to use for props.

This is a huge insult to those who are passionate about animating for real and have devoted hours of their lives into learning how to do it. Pretty much anyone can just drag and drop stuff to put a GoAnimate clip together. - Entranced98

Real animators don't use goanimate! they make the animations themselves with paper or computer. - Iamcool

Is it good to combine Goanimate and Flash videos using Sony Vegas? - BorisRule

45 L Ryan's a jerk

In some of his shows, characters are being tortured for no reason at all. I remember his first episode of his character elimination's 4th season. The challenge contestants were playing a game of Beach volleyball. Caterpillar from Baby Einstein however, didn't want to play. He decided to shoot the volleyball with a gun to pop it. When he succeeds in doing it, SpongeBob scolds him for costing their team the challenge even though they could just get a new ball. Caterpillar gets 5 penalties that basically feel like he is automatically disqualified.

Another thing about torture is that he has interns that he treats like slaves. If they do one small mistake, they die, I wish I was kidding. One time, he even killed the main protagonist of Antz by drowning him in a toilet simply because he took a shower without permission.

One final thing I want to talk about his his opinion on Sky from Total Drama. Up until June of 2015, anybody who disliked Sky was on his list of enemies. She ...more


46 They hate nearly all villains

Just because the characters are villains doesn't mean you should hate them. Some villains like Darth Vader are awesome. - EpicJake

This is the biggest reason why they suck.

I bet they like Hero Factory. - ChroniclerMan5

Haha typical isn't it. - NikoX

47 They made Dora's family wrong

Even Dora herself, she looks more like a boy rather than a girl, although I hate Dora, GoAnimate is bad at making cartoon characters match they're real counterparts!

All of the characters along with Dora and her family on GoAnimate are ugly and lazily made, heck, even I can draw better than them! GoAnimate Sucks!

They're even uglier then they were in the original cartoon! Mainly Dora!

48 They Blame Alvin Hung For Ruining Go!Animate

Alvin Hung IS greedy with the HTML5, but seriously! The people make killing videos and send death threats to Alvin Hung!

It's not Alvin Hung, it's Jessica Gongora! It was her idea to remove the non business themes and fib about HTML5!

49 The character getting grounded often gets really harsh punishments

Punishment days are child abuse and I remember a video where they shoved the illuminati up caillous butt and then boris cut off caillou's (ugh I don't want to say it but it's a body part)

And in general they make the grounded character eat dog poop, drink hot sauce and take very cold or very hot showers. - Lunala

If you accidentally fart in public, you get grounded for 16689180797932809887882901017924781891737781888 years. There was one video where Little Bill was put on death row just for stealing a small cup. Also, they have punishment days, which also involved harsh punishments like eating poop, taking an absolute zero temperature shower, and being cooked in the oven. - anonygirl

50 Alvin Hung is removing voices Like David, Kayla, and many others

I wouldn't be surprised when people start to give extreme negative feedback because they removed a lot of voices, and then non business themes! Before 2015, GoAnimate was so goood! But it's just stupid having to upgrade and sacrifice a lot of good things just to improve the site!

They made Dora sound like Caillou's mother/have Julie's voice! >:(
