The Top Ten

1 South Park 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.

What about steve irwin in the satan birthday episode? No little kid should ever be influenced by that kind of bad behavior. in fact, no one should ever be influenced by it either.

When I was little my grandma used to tape this show for me and my brother. I think it was because she classified it as a cartoon and thought it would be for kids but she actually had no idea what went on in the episodes. So we watched every episode she taped and never told her until we were older. She just shrugged and went "Oops! " Lol good ol' cheeky gran. - NerdBunny

There's one episode where they remember themselves back in pre-school and they start a fire and their pre-school teacher accidentally gets set on fire. that scene used to scare me so much as a kid.

I wasn't allowed to watch this show - flaggy0666

There's one character who's a pedophile, yet nobody does anything about it. - egnomac

Family guy is so bad for children.

Come on
This show is hilarious!
But it really isn't that bad like its. Still a cartoon

It may be about cartoons but its absolutely not for kids, there a lot of sexual content, foul language, homosexuality and its incredibly violent. - egnomac

Homosexuality isn't inappropriate you homophobe.

Only when it goes way over the top and just in your face all the time. - egnomac

This show makes South Park look like Sesame Street,even South Park does not does not show these kind of things in a way Drawn together does

SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show more.

Why the heck is this on the list I used to watch it all the time when I was a kid there is nothing bad in it and its very funny

It's no longer appropriate for kids, One Coarse Meal is one of the best examples. - nelsonerico6

I actually started watching this when I was three. Not lying. What happens when you have 13 year old cousins that get three year olds into a lot! - PianoQueen

This show is good for kids to watch, must not be on the list.

It’s more like adults should not watch this, some thinks creep out adults and teens that don’t creep out kids

7 Big Brother Big Brother Big Brother is a reality game show franchise created by John de Mol, originally broadcast in the Netherlands and subsequently syndicated internationally.

Needs to be number 1 - BigBrotherSucks

My 7 Year Old brother watches this show - Watchmojo

Why should you show your kids this - BigBrotherSucks

8 The Osbournes
9 Jackass

Jackass is hilarious, but some kids ignore the disclaimer and try the stunts at home.

10 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead The Walking Dead is an American horror drama television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard .

The Contenders

11 American Dad American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

Do I really need to say much about this show?

12 American Horror Story

Guys lets keep it real, stick with inappropriate T.V. shows that kids probably are allowed to watch. because I'm pretty sure you wouldn't let your kid watch a horror show. Or south park

It's not scary but: sex scenes, sex scenes everywhere the entire series is a porno - ToptenPizza

Stupid kids in my class have watched this

Its obvious that kids should not watch it look at the title

13 Barney & Friends 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 more.
14 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

This show shouldn't have even aired on Nickelodeon because there are butt moves.

I can understand South Park because it's an extremely graphic show, but it has intelligence. Breadwinners, however, should be in the top five because it can make kids under 6 lose brain cells. Thank you, Nickelodeon for cancelling it! You've done the world a favor!

This is a bad show. Why do people on Nickelodeon air a lot of bad shows such as this one, Harvey Beaks, and more cartoons.


15 Fugget About It

Def should be on the list should be #1

16 Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by Eric Robles for Nickelodeon. It is based on Fanboy, an animated short created by Robles for Nicktoons and Frederator Studios, which was broadcast August 14, 2009 to July 12, 2014 on Random! Cartoons. The series was first more.

Those two wear their underwear outside their pants, they look retarded, the animation is retarded, this is my 2nd least favourite show, and Nickelodeon shouldn't of aired that crap

This show is full of high characters, there's no plot and it 's for retards.

Those two act like 2 year olds, wait, they are dumber than a 2 year old,

Kids should never watch this

At least its on HBO, and not everyone has HBO. - Cartoonfan202

Kids don't watch this anyway...

This show has more bad content than most of the shows on this list. There's full frontal male and female nudity, graphic violence, very graphic and realistic sex scenes, Strong language, rape, torture and incest. Nothing kids should see unless they are at least 18.

18 Happy Tree Friends Happy Tree Friends Happy Tree Friends is an adult animated flash series created and developed by Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Warren Graff for Mondo Media.

Why is this only at 82? It looks like a kid show, but looking a little bit closer, you will see how bad it is for kids. It's way too bloody!

WAY too much blood.

Did Cannibal Corpse write a kids' show? - Aragorn98

I agree, it shouldn't be for kids.

Tori told managers to shoot an arrow and it accidentally went right through a woman's hand.

My 6 years old sister watches it, she says that it's so much better than My Little Pony

Victorious is so funny. Why can kids not watch it? Some parts are educational.

Why is this ahead of Game of Thrones? - BeatlesFan1964

20 Celebrity Deathmatch

Most kids won't know who any of these celebrities R. I mean, what little kid is gonna watch garth brooks beat the crap out of marilyn manson?

21 The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show

The creators din't want to create an educational series. This is what bothered Nickelodeon at that time. Ren and stimpy was controversial for it's toilet humor, sexual innuendo, harsh language, and violence. Stimpy is often the punching bag of ren and ren gets so angry that he is often depicted as a psychopath. There are lots of poop jokes, butt jokes, snot jokes, aggressive language, and abuse. They've even shown blood on here once (episode ren's pecs)! So yeah, don't show this show to your younger kids. I don't know why it was even on Nickelodeon in the first place.

And remember people! This is only my opinion and if you disagree with me fine. Just please don't get angry at me for it.

Remember the near end of the episode mad dog hoek where one of the lout brothers stars screaming and swearing revenge against ren and stimpy? Yeah I don't know about you but the way he described how they will get their revenge was just creepy. especially if they know where their parents live.
And the louts didn't even lose the match. ren and stimpy barely even laid scars on them. they were just squished into pancakes by the louts.

Don't show your kids this cartoon. especially on how disturbing the louts swore revenge at the end.

Also at the end of mad dog hoek, stimpy was even more terrifying! And he wasn't even swearing revenge or saying anything creepy. I wouldn't let my kids watch this show.

The cat gave birth to a fart, how gross

If we are talking about the Attitude Era or the Ruthless Aggression Era, then kids shouldn't watch - RickyReeves

WWE is good. I admit that there is a lot of violence at certain times but why kids should be allowed to watch what they want to unless its upsetting

WWE had way more viewers back in the attitude era and ruthless aggression,can you imagine with the way technology is how bigger would WWE be,with T.V.-14.

23 The Batchelor

This show has way too much sex scenes. By the way, there's no T in Bachelor.

"How in the H are we gonna fix this S"

I'm Surprised This Show Hasn't Been Moved To Adult Swim Yet.

We used to have it on Netflix, but this was when it started out.Then when we watched one of the newest Regular Shows, we actually had to turn it off because we had toddlers in the room and we actually thought it was going downhill

The show is targeted towards older kids (8-12), teens and adults. - EDP2000

Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and more.

It's impossible to stop this show. Most like it as much as I do. And all haters are just feeling jealous of the show's popularity. What offensive material is in this show? Nothing, anything is just toned down.

This show is horrible and there is no way someone can convince me to like it. Try but you just can't. Its impossible. - cosmo

It's For Kids So Does It Still Count?

The show is for kids, just not the fandom...

Way too scary for kids. It causes nightmares.

31 Dora

This should be #1 above south park! Why? Where can I start... oh yeah! The characters are crappy, the animation is crappy and dora herself is the crappiest! That demon girl is ugly, fat, stupid, and oh yeah, her head is shaped like a football. imagine dora going into a football arena with only fierce football players in it...

I completely agree with this. It's not good for kids because Swiper swipes/steals different things. I don't watch that show anymore, of course, but I know it's bad for kids.

Yeah, no good influence, she goes out unsupervised and has people stealing her stuff! What if a little kid went out like she did? - SailorVenus

This was made for little children

Even when I was 13 I knew this show wasn't appropriate for kids. it has really weird close up shots and dialogue that goes like this "did you see how that guy's bowtie looked like a bra? " why are they even playing this stuff on Cartoon Network?!

Adventure time is beautiful! I fell in love with marcy

Yeah this show has too much romance (which is bad because it teaches kids to love)
