Top Ten Most Useless Educational Children's ShowsxMagnoblade
The Top Ten
Teaches kids to be blind - Luckys
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
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. - Watchmojo
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. - KingFabV 13 Comments
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.
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
Teletubbies, that show you thought was about space aliens trying to invite your brain... - ARandomPerson
Oh people whine that there's no education, conflict. Maybe the Teletubbies is better for relaxation.V 6 Comments
Why isn't this number one? This show basically teaches you that if you whine for what you want, then you'll get it. I have a friend that wasn't allowed to watch Caillou when he was little because his parents didn't want him to turn into a little brat like Caillou.
The only thing this teaches you is to whine and you will get what you want. I used to watch this when I was younger but now I think it is stupid.
Look up why Caillou has no hair on Google lol. Whiney brat.
Duh Caillou is a whiny baby and he is stupid. Plus he never changes an age and he is four years-old forever also has cancer - andrewteelV 9 Comments
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.
It teaches nothing except for farting.
Has no educational purpose what-so-ever. Also a minor satanic ritual is preformed in every single one of the 104 episodes of this show.
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. - thomwimV 2 Comments
I.LOVE BARNEY. AND. FRIENDS! HOW DARE YOU PUT THIS SHOW ON THIS LIST!?
All it does is show kids to play pretend when you’re actually 10-12 GOD DAMN YEARS OLD ( the actors are actually 10-12 year old kids. ) - IceFoxPlayz
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

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
Lol, this is what I watched. - Luckys
*throws 27000 forks* THIS WAS MY FAVORITE SHOW WHEN I WAS 2!
(flips over a table) THIS SHOW WAS MY CHILDHOOD! HOW DARE U!
Hate this - Kaboom
I remember briefly watching this as a kid. The DJ guy was pretty cool, everything else was just... well... you tell me. - Rocko
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
This thing is worse than Dora The Explorer - BlueSheepYT
Maybe younger kids who haven't learnt how to count. Around the age of three.
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
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
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
Let your kids become know-it-alls! I researched them and they're just fine! Why! - sound4mercury
I love the theme song
Actually in my opinion, this show was good on lazy saturday mornings I mean seriously, this show was lit.
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
The animation sucks and an episode was BANNED in Australia
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
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
Way better than Dora. - andrewteel
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 used to teach freindship but now it only is for entertainment purposes.
"If a show claims that it teaches freindship then it actually doesn't teach you anything at all." - meV 3 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!
The clues are easy to see, but you don't see Blue's Clues attacked no its praised.
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!
At least it teaches you more than Dora the Explorer and Teletubbies. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
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!
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
This show actually taught me about earth sciences, experiments, and the concept of habitats. - thomwim
Woo science! I like dis show. Why’s it on here? - IceFoxPlayz
He w dare they put this on
This thing doesn't teach kids ANYTHING! - WorldPuncher47592834
Have Drax the Destroyer (Guardians of the Galaxy) destroy this hideous creature
What the hell? - IceFoxPlayz
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
Who is he?
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!
(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...
Wow, this show is so bad, it's on this list twice!
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.
Just shut the up and go to bed you brats
