Reasons Why Cartoons Are Overrated

I loved cartoons growing up as a kid but over the years as I iv'e grown up cartoons have lost their appeal

The Top Ten

1 Too Much Gross Out Humor

At least many shows with gross out can still be hilarious, because it's not just butts, it's not 100% toilet humor, we've got Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants, now THOSE are good! - Goatworlds

Don't forget Grossology, The Buzz on Maggie, Cow and Chicken, and Fly Tales.

2 Too Many Remakes of Old Cartoon Shows

I agree with the Teen Titans Go comment. Why would they cancel the original for this garbage? - bobbythebrony

Look at Teen Titans Go!. That was just an insult to the original Teen Titans.

Don't think its bad. - ad48

This list is CRAP. 👎💩 - RalphBob

3 Too Many Cartoons Parody Other Shows or Actors

Yeah but its cool when they do that. - cosmo

If you watch the Fairly Odd Parents episode "channel chasers", they made too many parodies of other shows.

Parody is fine, but not in large doses. - giddyjoker

While it is funny to watch cartoons parody famous movies, T.V. shows and actors but can be a bit too much at times.

4 Too Offensive at Times

A lot of cartoons have gotten a little too offensive like for instance The Boondocks were the N word is used almost nonstop one character who is black hates other black people, on Family Guy they've manage to offend just about everyone with its crude humor and awful stereotypes and even South Park which was offensive to begin with made fun of Scientology and even made fun of the Prophet Muhammad in the episodes 200 & 201 which have been banned from ever airing again.

5 Some Old Cartoon shows Don't Hold Up as They Well They Used to
6 A Lot of Old Cartoon Shows Have Been Forgotten

I agree most people today don't remember The Wuzzles, Count Duckula, or even Quick Draw McGraw its sad that a cartoon show can be so easily forgotten. - ZZDOORAL

Back in the day there were a lot of great cartoon shows sadly most of them have been forgotten over the years such great cartoons like: Count Duckula, Marsupulami, The Wuzzlez, Eek the Cat and so many greats.

7 Characters Have Gotten Too Stupid

A lot of the old cartoon characters were dumb but likable at the same time now a days characters come off as complely stupid and unlikable.

8 A lot of Old Cartoon Characters Have Been Forgotten

Everybody remembers the names Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Homer Simpsons but not too many people remember other classic cartoon characters like Mighty Mouse, Little Audrey, Baby Huey and Captain Caveman.

9 They're Not Always as Funny as You Remembered Them

It's more like cartoons are underrated. It's anime that is the underrated one. The only reason people forget them is because no one puts them on re runs or there isn't any dvds or videos. Most of the time the shows we look back on are funnier than we remember. Not every cartoon made now is full of gross humor or fart jokes. There's barely any of them but you all are overexaggerating about it

10 Too Repetitive at Times

Not necessarily a bad thing but it can get tiring watching the same old routine again and again a lot of times they would use the same routine in other shows and just change the characters.

This happened to teen Titans Go. It also airs too much I now realize. Whenever I try to find Gumball I always get this show! - Goatworlds

The Contenders

11 Terrible Fanbases

Far more worse than any anime fanbase can be. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yes...THIS IS...
Not just for why CARTOONS are overrated,
It's also on why VIDEO GAMES turn to trash...
And movies, apps, and all those other stuff...

Also this is the reason why I lost faith in HUMANITY...
Why are you guys so cruel...
