Top Ten Most Useless Educational Children's ShowsxMagnoblade
The Top Ten
It teaches Spanish, but the words are so bland and repetitive. All they teach you is how to count to 10 and other basic stuff that almost everyone already knows. Characters also aren't good either. The show features a little girl and monkey going on adventures WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS. The main "villain" is Swiper, a dumb fox who tries to steal their things in every episode. - xMagnoblade
People try to defend the show saying it teaches Spanish. It only shows like what... 5% of Spanish per episode. Even if it showed more 2 year olds wouldn't even notice the educational bits. - KingFab
Every episode is repetitive and the cartoon barely teaches anything that kids don't already know except a couple of Spanish words but they might as well use Rosetta Stone because they won't get too far with the language if they try and use this as a main source. I don't know if this or the one where she's a teenager is worse. - Mcgillacuddy
I honestly think the show where Dora is a teenager is worse because it might give young viewers low self-esteem because of how pretty the girls are on that show. - anonygirl
There's no reason to watch this educational piece of crap, when there's better educational shows like blues clues,sesame street and bill nye the science guy. - WatchmojoV 11 Comments
I don't even see any educational value in Teletubbies. All the show is about is four Teletubbies who do nothing but eat and play under a sun that has a baby for a face. On the bright side, at least it's not as bad as Barney and Friends and Dora the Explorer. Still, Teletubbies sucks. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
The spin-off Teletubbies Everywhere (2002) was supposed to be the educational show. Teletubbies Everywhere shorter episodes - Funny games, playing with numbers, naming and simple logic.
Teletubbies, that show you thought was about space aliens trying to invite your brain... - ARandomPerson

The white Little Bill except Bill wasn't a whiny little snot. Also why is Caillou bald but Rosie (his baby sister) has a full head of hair? - Cesium
Caillou, a whiny brat who teaches kids that they can get anything by whining like an idiot.
Teaches you how to get your way. That is not good, there are no lessons, you can see him whining in the picture.

Its difficult to believe this was made by the people who made Teletubbies who had more of a life and could say words "Run Away, Big Hug, Again Again" This is like a dumbed down Teletubbies or its for very young babies. But there's nothing satanic in it that's stupid as Christians who called Teletubbies satan.
This show is supposed to promote fitness, but my best friend from high school disagreed because these creatures are fat. Plus, the show looks like it was made on drugs. - thomwim
This is Obviously a Teletubbies family member, its not as bad as Teletubbies, but this is way too babyish
It teaches nothing except for farting.V 2 Comments
This show should not be here. I was a child back when Barney was a brand new show and it was very beneficial to my learning. So few of the people who even use this site were even alive during this show's prime years so where is this judgement coming from? Even during it's later years the show was beneficial to children's learning. Don't just follow the crowd when you vote on this list. Vote against a show that WAS actually useless like 'Yo Gabba Gabba' or something. - BKAllmighty
In my opinion, Barney and the Backyard Gang was creepy; seasons 1-6 of Barney & Friends was good; seasons 7-8 of Barney & Friends was okay; and seasons 9-14 of Barney and Friends was bad. - anonygirl
Does anyone even remember anything good of educational value that came out of this stupid live-action kids show atrocity? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
If it was only Seasons 9 or 10-14 then yes. The older seasons are actually underrated. - Kid_ethinederland
I.LOVE BARNEY. AND. FRIENDS! HOW DARE YOU PUT THIS SHOW ON THIS LIST!?V 2 Comments
Same situation with Dora - Luxam
Better than Dora 10% better
While I think it's better than Dora because it's more educational (it at least teaches kids facts about animals and habitats), I don't think it's that useful. - anonygirl
(flips over a table) THIS SHOW WAS MY CHILDHOOD! HOW DARE U!
*throws 27000 forks* THIS WAS MY FAVORITE SHOW WHEN I WAS 2!
Hate this - Kaboom
It's basically Barney and Friends 2.0. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I literally don't understand anything about this show. - junior1337
Even the name sounds stupid. - ARandomPerson
I remember briefly watching this as a kid. The DJ guy was pretty cool, everything else was just... well... you tell me. - Rocko
This thing is worse than Dora The Explorer - BlueSheepYT
This show is probably even more useless than Dora. It teaches NOTHING WHATSOEVER. Just how to count along (which I'm sure the children watching this already know how to do) with the characters being unrealistically dumb. - xMagnoblade
Never turn a cartoon icon like Mickey Mouse into a useless educational program. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Maybe younger kids who haven't learnt how to count. Around the age of three.
Say, Cheese! "F You! " Mickey: Great Job! - ARandomPerson
This show can be so annoying sometimes. For example, they repeat plot lines that might have been already done before. Also, do the characters have to always say bark BEFORE THEY DECIDE TO TALK NORMALLY?
This is probably one of the most overrated preschool shows out there. - anonygirl
Sexist, consumerist, littered with commercialism, terrible, pointless, idiotic, I could go on if I wanted to. - Epikrika
This show is so stupid. The last time I saw an episode, the mayor and her stupid chicken were on a plane with a girl and their plane needed to b repaired. The girl got her sleeve stuck, and didn’t even think to rip it off with her other hand, ask the mayor for something sharp, or anything like that. Th mayor called the paw patrol instead. It’s not an emergency, so just handle it yourself.
I know the name of the show is Little Einsteins, but trying to teach world culture and the arts to little kids is a bit TOO COMPLICATED, don't you think?! I know it's trying to be useful, but it's actually rather useless if the show is on a more advanced level than what little kids watch for an educational television program! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
At least they don't strictly teach kids about Europe only. - Epikrika
Let your kids become know-it-alls! I researched them and they're just fine! Why! - sound4mercury
I love the theme songV 1 Comment
It used to be a classic, but like many shows, they've moved on to CGI, and it's just not the same anymore. - Rocko
Bob the builder can we fix it? Bob the builder yes we can! I only rember this part of the theme song. - Iamnotlazy
This show is targeted to preschoolers. The characters themselves are preschoolers, yet they're learning stuff that 4th-5th graders learn.
Some of the only preschool thing they learn are the colors of the rainbow. - ShopkinsLover
All it does is show kids how to body shame someone and act like an idiot. - IceFoxPlayz
Peppa abuses her father all the time and calls him names.She moans and whines non stop and even though it was my favourite show it's not educational towards children
The animation sucks and an episode was BANNED in Australia
She abuses her father on a regular basis and moans and whines non stop.Although this is one of my favourite shows its not educational towards children
Easily the most useless. I could see a little kid being entertained by Dora or Barney, but this is the worst of the preschool lot.
It's stupid. Now my siblings think that Shetland ponies are "supposed to be pink". - WildDogGirl
It does teach you about friendship but the problem is that they just do one thing their entire lives. - WorldPuncher47592834
It used to teach freindship but now it only is for entertainment purposes.V 2 Comments
I've never even heard of this show lol. - xMagnoblade
Who on earth had watched The Who Said That episode. Daffy Duck taught a swear word that sounded like a rubber ducky.
Corny name, ugly hair, cheesy music, this show sucks!
At least it teaches you more than Dora the Explorer and Teletubbies. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Oh please if you want to watch real kids shows go and watch Zzzap! (1993-2001) Cuthbert Lilly was comical, Smart Arty was the guy from Art Attack, The Handymen did magic tricks. Tricky Dicky was spooky but one of the originals. They also had puzzles. It was the television comic!
The clues are easy to see, but you don't see Blue's Clues attacked no its praised.
Overrated, most people on here must be around 10 years old.V 2 Comments
This show ruined the original VeggieTales by making everything more childish. Bob acts like a child, Larry is Modern SpongeBob and they replaced my favorite character with a Squidward ripoff. They barely even talk about God anymore!
This show actually taught me about earth sciences, experiments, and the concept of habitats. - thomwim
The new magic school bus is way better than the old one. The old one has garbage picture quality. - WorldPuncher47592834
So what? Quality wasn't great in the old days you know! The new one is crap - ShopkinsLover
He w dare they put this on
Woo science! I like dis show. Why’s it on here? - IceFoxPlayz
Teaches bad things - Epikrika
This thing doesn't teach kids ANYTHING! - WorldPuncher47592834
Not a show, but a character that should probably go back to where it came from- a pile of dirty gym socks and blankets. - Epikrika
Have Drax the Destroyer (Guardians of the Galaxy) destroy this hideous creature
What the hell? - IceFoxPlayz
This was quite realistic and actually GOOD. - Epikrika
I loved this one as a kiddo!
Eh, not really educational. I learned about colors though but not much of anything else.
I remember this show. I used to watch it but when I was 7 I became more interested in shows for older kids like The Amazing World of Gumball and Gravity Falls.
It teaches kids to be fit and active. Heck, one of the memes that were made from this almost saved Robbie Rotten’s actor’s life ( almost. R.I.P. Stefan /or Stephan/ Karl. You will always be number one in our hearts. )
He is number one in our hearts. - IceFoxPlayz
This guy is an atheist nut who teaches false info to kids. He may seem funny, but he's truly a crazy idiot head who needs to be committed!
Who is he?
(I pulled out a shotgun with weapons and started shooting and slicing them)
Me (screaming): No!
(Their blood comes up and showers all over me)
Me (crying): My head hurts...
They ruined VeggieTales by making everything more childish. Bob acts like a child, Larry is Modern SpongeBob and they replaced my favorite character with a Squidward clone. They don't even talk about God anymore.
Wow, this show is so bad, it's on this list twice!
Just shut the up and go to bed you brats
