Top 10 Worst Animated Shows that Debuted in the 70s

Considered by many to be the worst decade for animation the 70's brought a lot of really horrible cartoons many being wither a terrible spin off, a rip off, or based off celebrity's.
The Top Ten
1 The Tom and Jerry Show The Tom and Jerry Show, also known as The New Tom and Jerry Show, is an animated television series produced for Saturday mornings by Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with MGM Television in 1975 for ABC based on the theatrical shorts and characters Tom and Jerry.

A completely toned down version of the original classic where both Tom and Jerry are friends as they get in all sorts of situations only with none of the charm and humor of the original Hannah Barbara classics, but then again due to censorship at the time that didn't allow any kind of violence on T.V. and of course the show will suck. - egnomac

They made a Reboot of this in 2014 - 23windomt

Even Hanna-Barbera themselves hated this cartoon. - egnomac

It's amazing how people like to complain about how bad today's cartoons are and that cartoons were so much better in the past. The opposite is true, especially when looking at cartoons from the 60's through the mid-80's.

As for The Tom and Jerry Show, it was about as close to airing static that a T.V. channel could possibly air without actually airing static.

2 The Super Globetrotters

A cartoon based on the Harlem Globtrotters as superheroes sounded bad even on paper. - egnomac

Poor Impossibles, having their powers copied by this atrocious cartoon. :(

3 The New Adventures of Gilligan

Because we wanted a Gilligan's island cartoon - Tyoshi

4 Fred and Barney Meet The Thing

Apparently this was a thing back in the 70's Fred and Barney from the Flintstones and Fantastic Fours The Thing together in the same show. - egnomac

5 Fraidy Cat

I admit it but I kinda like this show. Please don't hurt me

A cartoon about a cat who's lost all but one of his lives and is in constant terror of losing his last life and making things worst any time Fraidy inadvertently says a number from 1-8 or any word that sound or rhymes with a number then a ghost from one of his eight lives pops up to make his life even worst and that's pretty much the joke of the whole series and you'll also notice the animation is incredibly cheap due to television animation at the time not being profitable at the time meaning that they had to cut corners every chance they got and like a majority of cartoons of the 70's it has a laugh track which gets used way too much. - egnomac

6 The Robonic Stooges

A cartoon about the three stooges as superheroes sounds familiar to another entry on this list. - egnomac

7 The Osmonds

Anytime in the 70's where decide to base a cartoon on a celebrity or group its always going to be bad add in the awful laugh track and and you get this mess. - egnomac

8 Goober and the Ghost Chasers

Basically a cheap imitation of Scooby Doo including the use of a talking dog character. - egnomac

Ripoff of scooby doo

Scooby Doo spinoff - 23windomt

9 The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang

This show was from the 80's not the 70's. - egnomac

Awful - 445956

10 Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch

A cartoon set in a world where cars and motorcycles talk and its about a gang of motorcycles who cause trouble for the main protagonist Wheelie the whole idea of this show is down right ridicules. - egnomac

How sad? Lol. This was my absolute favorite when I was 4 years old. - THC13

The Contenders
11 The U.S. of Archie

A spin off of the Archie cartoons more heavy on the education and lacks the music and humor of the original. - egnomac

12 Clue Club


HATE THIS CARTOON! HATE IT! HAATTTE IT! Dotty is the ONLY good character as well as the only redeemable factor from this atrocity. Say what you will about Goober and other Scooby "clones" [I don't agree with that term, as I think each mystery solving show minus Clue Club have unique features] but at least the characters there WERE LIKABLE! Clue Club sucks altogether. Larry is so bossy and annoying, D.D is a whimp, Pepper's voice makes my ears bleed, the sherrif is incompetent, AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED AND WHOOFER AND WHIMPER! Poor Dotty, having to be stuck with a bunch of losers, perhaps the Speed Buggy crew could adopt her!
