As a young kid, I used to love this show but as I'm older now, I'm now realizing the harmful stereotypes.
Babysitter only in it for the money and her lover, dumb blonde whose obsessed with boys, foreign Indian kid with a pet lizard and a heavy accent, the troubled son who only wants to be a rebel, the sassy little black girl, and the fat house servant.
All overly used and toxic stereotypes.
I agree, these are extremely commonly used stereotypes. But there are stereotypes everywhere. Stereotypes were created to be used. (In theatre, we just learned about Commedia Dell'arte, basically the birth of stereotypes, so I'm trying to not go into a full lesson on that lol). What I'm trying to say, is that you shouldn't wrong a show because or using stereotypes. They are used because they are enjoyable. I didn't watch Jessie much, so I'm not super familiar with it, but I think that stereotypes should be judged based on how they are used.
2 Total Drama
Total Drama is a Canadian animated comedy television series which is a homage and parody to the conventions commonly found in reality television.
That's what makes the show so entertaining, though. You've got the type A, the dumb blonde, the popular b-i-t-c-h, the dumb jock, the wannabe jock, the cynical kid who's smart but lazy, the fat and gross guy, and others. It's the clashing of the stereotypes that makes it funny.
Despite Total Drama MADE to be full of stereotypes, I think some of these stereotypes are a bit.. wrong. Don't get me wrong, I loved this show, but the way Owen and Izzy were portrayed was horrible, same with Gwen and Lindsay.
Well yeah, but that's what makes this show iconic, super entertaining.
3 A.N.T. Farm
A.N.T. Farm is an American teen sitcom which originally aired on Disney Channel from May 6, 2011 to March 21, 2014.

Tori Vega is played by actress Victoria Justice.
Jade and Beck is the most greatest relationship in Nickelodeon history before Carly and Freddie and Drake and Mindy.
Hm... we've got the dumb chick who dyes her hair, the mean goth, the annoying cling-on, the nerd, and loads of other obvious stereotypes. And they don't pull them off well, either.
5 Tom and Jerry
Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of comedy short films created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Best known for its 161 theatrical short films by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the series centers on a rivalry between the title characters Tom, a cat, and Jerry, a mouse. Many shorts also feature several recurring characters.
Tom and Jerry isn't stereotyped.
6 2 Broke Girls
2 Broke Girls is an American television sitcom that aired on CBS from September 19, 2011 to April 17, 2017. The series was produced for Warner Bros. Television and created by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings. Set in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City, the show's plot follows the lives of friends Max Black (Kat Dennings) and Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs). Whereas Caroline was raised as the daughter of a billionaire, Max grew up in poverty, resulting in differing perspectives on life, although together they work in a local diner while attempting to raise funds to start a cupcake business.
It's just unfunny, immature, sexist and patronising humour. And yet, the stereotypical blonde idiot who this is directed at is what makes it so popular.
Thank God this show is on here!

9 South Park
South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.
How could you forget South Park? That show abuses just about every stereotype imaginable.
It's supposed to offend as much people as possible. But South Park is still awesome.
You have no tastes in T.V.. You hate Robot Chicken and South Park? How?
10 Sam and Cat

11 The Fairly OddParents
The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.
Hmm...let's see: The retarded parents, the evil babysitter who the parents always believe, the smart sister and dumb brother, the main character who is always treated unfairly, and many more. As much as I love this show, I gotta admit that there's a lot of stereotypes.
12 Family Guy

18 Ni Hao Kai-Lan
Ni Hao Kai-Lan was straight up full of racist stereotypes. Not only was the accent so heavily used, but the "Every Asian likes monkeys" stereotype was so heavily used in this. I wouldn't say it's the most stereotypical show ever, but it isn't the best for kids.
This just shows the stereotypes and things that people think about Asian people, more specifically Chinese people
