Top Ten Most Useless Educational Children's ShowsxMagnoblade
The Top Ten
Where's her parents!?! this doesn't help you learn and if robbers steal your stuff saying robbers no robbing is not gonna help
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
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. - KingFab14 Comments
Stupidest show ever! - andrewteel
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... - ARandomPerson7 Comments
You should never throw a fit when you don't get what you want. I don't know why this is even a show.
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.
He throws a fit every time.
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.12 Comments
Barney smiles way too much and if anyone does this all the time in certain situations that's bad
I.LOVE BARNEY. AND. FRIENDS! HOW DARE YOU PUT THIS SHOW ON THIS LIST!?
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
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. ) - IceFoxPlayz3 Comments
Boohbah is just as worse as Teletubbies. - andrewteel
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.3 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
*deletes (all) your minecraft worlds* Without this AMAZING kids show, my childhood would be ruined
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!1 Comment
This thing is worse than Dora The Explorer - BlueSheepYT
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
Mickey Mouse clubhouse is an OK cartoon
Update: I now hate this baby version of Mickey Mouse - andrewteel
MAKE MORE MICKEY MOUSE CARTOONS, AND STOP MAKING Mickey Mouse LOOK LIKE HE'S FOR BABIES NOW!
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. - xMagnoblade3 Comments
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
This needs to be higher on this list
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.4 Comments
I like Baby Sylvester - andrewteel
Who on earth had watched The Who Said That episode. Daffy Duck taught a swear word that sounded like a rubber ducky.
I've never even heard of this show lol. - xMagnoblade
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.
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.2 Comments
The best one out of all of these shows
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? - IceFoxPlayz1 Comment
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!
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.
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!
ECKSCUZ MEE? this is the only preschool show worth watching (after numberblocks)
(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...
Just shut the up and go to bed you brats
