I agree this is an inappropriate cartoon, I was not allowed to watch this as a kid - trains45

My parents let me watch it sometimes and I'm 10

I love this show, but sadly it's not for kids. The characters are adorable looking but it has too much swearing and inappropriate adult humour.

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.

Remember kids! Family Guy is a disgusting cartoon.

Do I really need to say much about this show?

4 Robot Chicken Robot Chicken Robot Chicken is an American stop motion sketch comedy television series, created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root for Adult Swim.

This show way too bad for kids, rated 18+ in canada, I was not allowed to watch it as a kid at all, I remember some kids who stayed the night at my house watched, they had to change it, I looked away when it was on, I would be old enough now to watch it

I was not allowed to watch this show growing up, at all, now I over 18 - trains45

*way to violent for kids*

NEVER EVER EVER should you let anybody under 18 watch this show. There's all kinds of sex scenes, violence, EXTREME LANGUAGE, countless things that makes this 5000 times worse than South Park. - InsaneMontyZT

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,

Extremely violent, homosexuality and foul language. Way too inappropriate for kids making me dislike this show, due to the amount of gore and sex it has.

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

9 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.

Ugh. I hate this show. I don't get how this is even a kids show at all and also it has twerking

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.

13 American Horror Story American Horror Story American Horror Story is an American anthology horror television series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

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

Too many butt jokes

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

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.

I like this show but seriously don't let the cute looking characters fool you. It's got lots and lots of graphic violence, blood and gore and it's about animals killing eachother

I watched the whole series on Netflix, and I'm 12! I loved the series, and was introduced to it in the summer of 2016 by my older cousin Amani, who showed us an episode of it. I soon watched it on Netflix a couple months later, and then, when I asked mom about something, and to search it up on her phone, I fogot to exit the happy tree friends Wikipedia, and she found my bloody little secret. She didn't get mad at me, but was surprised to see that I was watching gorey cartoons. Now, I frequently draw gore in my art.( I'm still 12 ) - IceFoxPlayz

Gore, gore, blood, blood and guts everywhere. - PolishDude

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!

Kids should never watch this

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

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.

22 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?

I think its ok cause I watch this now its pg with violence

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.

28 The Batchelor

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

No child of any age should EVER watch this.

I watched this show once because I was bored, and it's so gross! This is a bad influence for kids, and this should stop airing on Nickelodeon.

"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

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?

I hate it. It is non-appropriate for children. What is more, it's weird that adults watch that.

32 The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

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.

I love ren and stimpy but it's very dark for a kids show and also do NOT watch the adult party cartoon remake. It will give you nightmares.

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.
