Worst Animated Movie Franchises


The Top Ten

1 Planes Franchise

The sequel was better. - PeeledBanana

2 Shrek Franchise

People diss the third and fourth too much.
It should've just stayed one movie with the happy ending "I'm a believer"
Shrek movies overhate is..
1. Shrek the third.
2. Shrek forever after
3. Shrek (How can you think the sequel is better than the first. Meeting Fiona's family? There is fairy godmothers in the first film but are not evil like the sequel.)
4. Shrek 2 which will be number 5 on the overhate when the fifth film comes out.

Memes killed it off.

You know, I didn't like the first three films except the last one, Shrek Forever After because it was an emotional and serious one! - Victoryboy

I'm going to be totally honest here. I like Shrek, but what I really like it for is for the movie itself, not the memes based off of it. Seriously, even if its memes can be addicting, that shouldn't really determine the quality of a movie. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They have more movies in this franchise then the movie franchise they originally ripped off!

4 Smurfs franchise

The comic and the cartoon was good. - Rambles

5 Ice Age Franchise

The first three films are the best ones in the franchise. The fourth and fifth are just awful.

The first one is the only good one.

The first two Ice Age films were okay. - Rambles

The original was the only good one. I remember seeing the 2nd only once, and not watching it again. - htoutlaws2012

Ice Age is one of the best animated movies of all time. - PeeledBanana
