Top Ten Weirdest Children's Shows

The Top Ten
1 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. It is owned by Canadian Studio WildBrain, which is the largest independent Children's and Adolescent's Film Studio

The babies and creators: Oh, they're just cute, harmless little aliens with weird names and belly screens. Along with the Sun, who happens to be a baby. And the pipes are just commanders who tell the Teletubbies what to do. Babies will understand.

Kids: This show is weird because it's for babies.

Teens: What the heck is this? Four aliens and a Sun baby? This is creepy. Pipes telling them what to do? Disturbing. Belly screens tracking down whatever fun thing a baby is doing? THAT'S JUST WRONG!

Adults: Honey, what are you watching?! IT'S THE TELETUBBIES! QUICK! BURN IT WITH FIRE BEFORE IT LAYS EGGS! It's okay, son/daughter, it's gone now. Don't ever watch that again, or you're grounded.

2 Barney & 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... read more

A giant purple dinosaur is kinda weird if you ask me. Especially if you look deep in his eyes.

Any show with a purple dinosaur in it is weird.

3 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.
4 Pee-wee's Playhouse

This show is really creepy, but I liked it as a kid for some reason. Pee-wee acts like a child, and the other characters, except for the live people, are ugly! My parents think this is not creepy and it is good.

My 5th grade teacher used to show it to us all the time. It has like a 10-minute intro of weirdness! The guy sounds like he has no life!

JUST PLAIN weird! AND CREEPY! Did I watch it as a kid? Yes, but only because that's what my family put on for me. I didn't really like it.

5 Breadwinners Breadwinners is an American animated television series created by Gary "Doodles" DiRaffaele and Steve Borst for Nickelodeon.

The series was originally conceived as an animated short from DiRaffaele's efficiency apartment in Studio City, Los Angeles along with Borst. The two had previously met... read more

It's about ducks shaking their butts and loving bread. Need I say more?

6 Nanalan'
7 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. 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... read more

Ok, obviously I see why this is up here. They basically just said, Hey, we're desperate for ratings, so we're gonna make a show about a kid who goes on crazy adventures with a talking dog. It's like Dora almost, if you think about it.

Weird but surprisingly funny and emotional! Marceline is so cute.

8 Boohbah Boohbah is a British children's television programme created by Anne Wood. It premiered on 14 April 2003 on ITV in the United Kingdom, followed by its Nick Jr.

SheepBuggy, I watched it around your age. I thought the show was a bit crazy, but guess what? The show is for 3-year-olds. I changed the channel. It's just a gang of fluffy balls zooming around going boohbah.

If you watch this, you will genuinely feel like you're high. I mean, what kind of names are "Zingzingzingbah" and "Mrs. Lady"? A low-key satanic show.

There is no dialogue in this show whatsoever, and all the episodes are, in essence, the same.

9 Green Screen Adventures

I actually had the misfortune of watching this.

10 Dora The Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2019) is an American preschool 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.

Dora says, "Oh no, a puddle, what do we do?"

I say, "Here is advice 1: Walk, you have feet. Just walk around it. 2: Put your monkey in a zoo. And you should go back to kindergarten."

In my opinion, I think Dora might be blind and deaf because she asks you everything even if it's obvious.

The Contenders

Ugh, that bald 4-year-old is so weird and whiny all the time.

Examples: Mom, Rosie's doing this. Mom, Rosie's doing that.

Ugh, his whining drives me insane, and so do his temper tantrums.

I have never heard of this cartoon till the internet. Why did the animators make him bald?

Like it or not, one must admit it is ludicrous.

21 Classical Baby
22 Mr. Meaty Mr. Meaty is a Canadian-American television series created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley. The show centers on two lazy teenage boys named Josh Redgrove and Parker Dinkleman, who work at a fast food restaurant.

Really creepy. I was really scared of the episode when Mr. Meaty gets a tapeworm from eating a raw burger.

23 Angela Anaconda Angela Anaconda is a Canadian–American children's television series created by Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose, the latter of whom who also voices the title character.
24 The Junior Christian Bible Science Lesson
25 Tweenies

Most of the songs (not the theme songs) are fine. At least they have real names and don't talk like babies.

These things, well, they're not awful but they're creepy.
