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 are smarter Spanish shows on T.V., like Maya and Miguel. - thomwimV 9 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.
Seriously, the eyes are all black! Did they even TRY on this?
What it does is teaches kids to be whiny brats. - railfan99V 2 Comments
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
Its not made by people on drugs. How thick are you?
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
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!
Hate this - Kaboom
I literally don't understand anything about this show. - junior1337
It's basically Barney and Friends 2.0. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Even the name sounds stupid. - ARandomPerson
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
Say, Cheese! "F You! " Mickey: Great Job! - ARandomPerson
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.
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.
Bob the builder can we fix it? Bob the builder yes we can! I only rember this part of the theme song. - Iamnotlazy
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.
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
It's stupid. Now my siblings think that Shetland ponies are "supposed to be pink". - WildDogGirl
Not an educational show, its just another My Little Pony show.
This show actually taught me about earth sciences, experiments, and the concept of habitats. - thomwim
He w dare they put this on
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!
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!
Overrated, most people on here must be around 10 years old.

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!
Yes you will go on and on about its not a kids show but hang on. Loads of people have watched adult cartoons from childhood because it's a cartoon.
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
