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 1000 years. - Peppapigsucks

Look in a goanimate cringe compilation on YouTube, and you will most likely find these videos. - Katildalover93

Flower sleeps in detention and gets grounded that is one of the worst reason to get grounded - Hummingbirdf

2 Dead meat videos

And some of these videos are over 30 minutes long! - Katildalover93

Rosie's hair got a dead meat? What?! - BorisRule

Why is it called Dead meat? What does that mean?

These kinds of videos are extremely stupid. - EpicJake

3 The grounded videos don't make sense

Especially the ridiculous amount of days.

i.e: "You are grounded for 9,999 centuries! " - Katildalover93

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.

4 It is a waste of money

It is $40 a MONTH, yes, a month, you can buy a simple drawing tablet for the same price, $40 a year is fine, back when GoAnimate4Schools existed (a version of GoAnimate used for educational purposes), you were able to pay $80 a year for a teacher plan, which was pricey, but not as bad as $300 a year - FasterThanSonic

Almost a waste money than patreon. Still hate Goanimate for the weird videos.

Premium costs WAY too much per MONTH!

40 dollars just to make grounded videos - WorldPuncher47592834

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

I did saw the original Caillou where he is not harsh. - CaillouFanatic

They use Boris and Doris over the original Mom and Dad

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

Even Butters dad from South Park is more tolerable than this garbage

6 Punishment Days

People are being way too abusive on kids when making these. They must have been on DOPE doing these crappy videos. Like taking a cold shower, getting beaten...really? - Katildalover93


Are go-animators really saying "abusing your children is what all parents should do to their children any time or for no reason at all! " NO! parents should love and support their children, not treat them like crap and kill them! Go animators should be ashamed of themselfs.

There is an opposite called Reward Days. and I both do Punishment and Reward day videos. I only hate CGPD, DGPD, SBGPD, RGPD, and KGPD - CaillouFanatic

7 The videos are not creative

Your typical goanimator after watching "Caillou gets grounded because of his stupid name":

"Wow! I really liked this video! I'm going to make the exact same video this guy made, but with a different character! I'll call it, 'Dora gets grounded because of her stupid name'". - shadomatrix

They're repetitive. Like Groundhog Day all over again! - Katildalover93

Exactly. Same old "if you get 4 C's and 1 D, you get 1 day of detention" crap. Nobody in their right mind would like those sorts of videos. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

They're always the same!

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

What a dumb reason. - Katildalover93

I'd get grounded after every track race then

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.

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

Mostly Caillou or Dora - CaillouFanatic

Yeah... - Katildalover93

I'm in my teens and I still watch Nick Jr.! The shows are for keeping your heart young but most of them think that the shows are evil! How?!

Don't get me started on no let's watch

V 9 Comments
10 Sometimes people get grounded for nothing at all

Yeah people just get grounded just because they blast paw patrol theme song that's really nothing

"Caillou, you are grounded. But mom, I did not do anything! That is right—you are grounded for nothing. Go to bed now! "

Really now. Shaking my dang head. - Katildalover93

That's why I don't have Goanimate account - BorisRule

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.

The Newcomers

? Everyone has similar tastes

Like I heard almost every goanimator I still watch start to hate one of my favorite cartoons, Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman. But I am fine with their opinions on it, though. - Katildalover93

The Contenders

11 It Is boringly generic and repetitive

The plots are bland. Like its "(Character) Misbehaves At (Restaurant)" and "(Character) Goes To (Place) While Grounded. Be creative! Come up with new ideas instead of punishment days and crud. - Katildalover93

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.

There is those "timeline" videos and they r annoying because the same boring old thing happens. The mom is pregnant & the baby comes out, they di a christmas vlog, the child gets mad and at oreschool some kid eats all the milk and cookies and some onter crap. Like they r slight differences in soem of them, but most of them r just the same boring old thing. UGH!

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

12 The Rants

I watched a Fetch With Ruff Ruffman and The Ruff Ruffman Show rant from someone I still watch called Michael The Vyond Guy. I am trying to put this in the nicest way possible, but the way he described the characters was mediocre, and were lies. I respect his opinion the show, though. - Katildalover93

There is even salutes - CaillouFanatic

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

V 16 Comments
13 Some videos are inappropriate

Like they made a reference to a South Park scene in where Cartman swears at the teacher. I have seen a GoAnimate video based off of that, and there is a lot of crude language. - Katildalover93

Boo hoo not everything is ponies and rainbows

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

Panimated makes videos with profanity - WorldPuncher47592834

14 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.

I just hate the rants people made on this guy. Just stop the Alvin Hung hate, alright? The reason why he removed the non business themes is because he wants to help his family and he doesn't want to get sued by FOX or the company that was affiliated with some of the TTS voices. - Katildalover93

Ugly bastard - JazzyJulie

How dare he get rid of Comedy World. - Smash64

What did he ever do? All he did was choose not to renew things that were outdated by now anyways. - KalloFox34

15 Cyber bullies

There are people who make "message to good user/bad user" videos. Good users and bad users don't exist. Worst thing is sometimes they even threaten to make grounded videos on you. - Katildalover93

To many user videos - Hummingbirdf

Cyberbullies are annoying pricks

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

V 4 Comments
16 Apologies are Never Accepted

Like in the end of a "misbehave" video. Caillou apologized for his behaviour and Doris did not accept it. - Katildalover93

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

17 They say "grounded" a lot

Just say it once. - Katildalover93

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!?

18 Annoying Computer Voices

They sound weird

19 The people who make the videos are mean

Good users and bad users do not exist. - Katildalover93

"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

I once replaced a video and it's storyline once by making an ungrounded video out of Dora - CaillouFanatic

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

Using GoAnimate does not mean you are a animator. It means you didn't take the time to try actual animation. - Katildalover93

It's not animation. It's just dragging stuff around. Also it's not art either. This makes the animation meme community look better. Yes there the same thing but hey at least there actually animators and there learning. If you use goanimate your not gonna learn anything. Actually come to think of it you'll learn nothing.

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

21 Held back videos

"How dare you be late to class for the one millionth time? That is it. You are being held back to eleventh grade! " - Katildalover93

Stupid idiots who makes videos like this are a bunch of morons who are born without a heart

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!

22 You have to pay to post a video on YouTube

Some use bandicam - CaillouFanatic

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

23 If you're watching a GoAnimate Video, it's most likely going to be a Grounded Video or Dead Meat Video

No surprise. - Katildalover93

24 The voices of the characters sound like robots

Boys having girl voices what. - MChkflaguard_Yt

The voices are so cringy that it mostly ruins things that I like

Move this higher

They removed all the good voices. - WorldPuncher47592834

25 The community sucks

Yes it does. I used to like them, but now I don't. I liked it since 2014 and hated it since 2019. The grounded videos got even more terrible, ESPECIALLY Ruff Ruffman Grounded Videos.
I hate those videos because of the following: 1) Ruff's real parents, as seen in "The FETCH! Finale", Wink and Dinah, are not used, and are replaced with fake parents. 2) Ruff would never cause trouble for fun 3) I don't like grounded videos anymore really - Katildalover93

26 They don't use their imagination

Me: Be creative, make your own stories! It can be anything you want it to be!

GoAnimate User: Nope, I will stick to grounded videos. - Katildalover93

Because they don't know what it is - WorldPuncher47592834

Yeah, one person creates a basic video plot for GoAnimate, publishes it and then there are 50,000 clones of the video. - KalloFox34

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

27 They hate Warren fans.

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

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

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

This is especially sad when you realize that Warren Cook is actually a REAL PERSON! That means thousands of people on YouTube are hating on some real kid just because he made fake VHS openings and go animate treats those kind of things as unforgivable sins.

28 The users are wimps

Honestly GoAnimate styled rants are getting kinda old. I would attempt more originality. - Katildalover93

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

Warren Cook type of stuff.

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.

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

And thus. My childhood dies. - Katildalover93

They also ruin childhoods - CaillouFanatic

Don't call them baby show, just call them little kid shows

They do this maybe because they think little kids wont understand it

V 13 Comments
30 They constantly complain about preschool shows

And make Grounded Videos out of them - CaillouFanatic

You mean the "baby shows"... - Katildalover93

31 They hate Dora the most

I mean I don't really like it anymore either. But I loved the crap out of it when I was a infant, so I lost hatred on Dora because it was childhood. And keep in mind my hatred grew on it a year ago because of this community. - Katildalover93

This needs to be #6 instead of #31 - CaillouFanatic

Other goanimators hate caillou the most - CaillouFanatic

There are other things you should hate more decides Dora.

33 They think child abuse is funny

BIG example with the Punishment Day crap! - Katildalover93

Are these people crazy do these people even know what raising a child is like
if a 3 year old kid is annoying you do you treat a kid like he stretch aemstrong
NO! you just cool off not try to kill them settle down jason

Child abuse SUCKS

34 Dora sounds like a teenager

If that's not weird enough, people ship her with Caillou... - Katildalover93

Same as in my series - CaillouFanatic

I hate fans of dora

She even likes dating Caillou! That's Gross!

35 OfficerPoop247 is Selfish

I used to watch videos from this guy after discovering them for the first time years back. But if he likes to abuse children, then he can stay terminated for all I care. I don't know if he is back or not, but I seen some of his videos on another channel. - Katildalover93

I think his videos are hilarious (but for the wrong reasons). - KalloFox34

His account got terminated

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.

36 They ship Caillou and Dora together

In one video, I seen them get married. - Katildalover93

I ship!

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!

39 They like almost everything

Whoever hates sesame street needs a good spanking now hate it a big big world instead

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

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

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

41 They Hate Baby Shows To Make Them Look Cool

I don’t make animations about hating baby shows - CaillouFanatic

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

That is so ridiculous

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

43 Some people get grounded in almost every video

Four Twenty is good

Except for NotSmirks

44 They're weird

Like Isaac Anderson Animations

Agreed with the bottom/top sentence.

45 They pronounce Caillou's name wrong

Shouldn't be Kay-loo instead of K-loo or Key-loo? - BorisRule

Kayloo, - Katildalover93

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

Why. Villains are supposed to be the antagonists. - Katildalover93

They even hate Ernesto De La Cruz (Main villain in Coco) - WorldPuncher47592834

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.

49 They Blame Alvin Hung For Ruining Go!Animate

Well, Jessica is stupid then, I suppose. - Katildalover93

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!

Jessica is a bitch!

50 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! "
