Top Ten Most Useless Educational Children's Shows

The Top Ten

1 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer is an 2000 American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner.

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 hate Dora the explorer. She always takes out the map. And always asks like where do we go first? Like HELLO? YOU ARE IN T.V.. Could you even hear us saying like you should go here first. - Iamnotlazy

2 Teletubbies 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 .

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

Oh people whine that there's no education, conflict. Maybe the Teletubbies is better for relaxation.

Teletubbies, that show you thought was about space aliens trying to invite your brain... - ARandomPerson

It's a rip off of fanboy and chum chum

3 Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go! is an American animated educational interactive children's television program that originally aired on the Nickelodeon children's cable network in the United States and produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio .

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

4 Caillou Caillou Caillou is a Canadian educational children's television series that was first shown on Télétoon and Teletoon, with its first episode airing on the former channel on September 15, 1997; the show later moved to Treehouse TV, with its final episode being shown on that channel on October 3, 2010. The ...read more.

Caillou, a whiny brat who teaches kids that they can get anything by whining like an idiot.

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

Ugly bolded-head character

5 Barney and Friends Barney and 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.

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

Does anyone even remember anything good of educational value that came out of this stupid live-action kids show atrocity? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!

(flips over a table) THIS SHOW WAS MY CHILDHOOD! HOW DARE U!

Hate this - Kaboom

7 Boohbah 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.
8 Yo Gabba Gabba Yo Gabba Gabba Yo Gabba Gabba! is an American live action/puppet children's television show starring five costumed toys-come-to-life and their friend DJ Lance Rock.

I literally don't understand anything about this show. - junior1337

It's basically Barney and Friends 2.0. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 Dora and Friends: Into the City Dora and Friends: Into the City Dora and Friends: Into the City! is an American CGI interactive educational animated television series.

This thing is worse than Dora The Explorer - BlueSheepYT

10 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is an American computer-animated interactive children's television series which aired from May 5, 2006, to November 6, 2016. The series, Disney Television Animation's first computer animated series, is aimed at preschoolers.

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

The Contenders

11 Little Einsteins Little Einsteins Little Einsteins is an American animated children's television series on Playhouse Disney. The educational preschool series was developed for television by Douglas Wood who created the concept and characters, and a subsequent team headed by Emmy Award-winning director Aidan Abril and JoJo's Circus co-creator ...read more.

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.

12 PAW Patrol PAW Patrol PAW Patrol is an Canadian animated television series created by Keith Chapman. It is produced by Spin Master Entertainment with animation provided by Guru Studio. In Canada, the series is primarily broadcast on TVOKids, which first ran previews of the show in August 2013. The series first aired on Nickelodeon ...read more.

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

13 Bob the Builder Bob the Builder Bob the Builder is a British children's animated television show created by Keith Chapman. In the original series, Bob appears in a stop motion animated programme as a building contractor, specialising in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised ...read more.

Bob the builder can we fix it? Bob the builder yes we can! I only rember this part of the theme song. - Iamnotlazy
