The 80's were a very weird time for cartoons as a vast majority of cartoons from the 80's were mostly based on toys, video games and even live action TV shows and of course most of them were really awful, and now its time for the worst cartoons that first aired from 1980-1989.

The Top Ten

1 The Garbage Pail Kids Cartoon The Garbage Pail Kids Cartoon Garbage Pail Kids is a Canadian cartoon series which was produced in 1987, based on the popular Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, produced and directed by Bob Hathcock and co-written and developed by Flint Dille.

Though nowhere near as bad as the movie The Garbage Pail Kids cartoon was a special kind of awfulness it shamelessly parades its laziness the shows intro is down right painful to sit through they clearly couldn't afford to write a decent theme song so they had some guy shouting a bunch of obnoxious worlds through the intro, as for the into itself it just shoves a cavalcade of characters most who have nothing to do with the show at all or appear anywhere in the first episode as they run through the screen it never tells the audience what the show is actually about, the very first episode which was banned starts off with a segment that literally has nothing to do with the Garbage Pail Kids as for the actual episode itself it looks very sloppy not to mention the lip syncing is way off as the characters mouth don't match what they're saying.and the episode ends with the message that you shouldn't trust people who aren't disgusted by your appearance I'm not even joking that's literally ...more - egnomac

The gimmick here is that it's parodying The Cabbage Patch Kids. That's it. They were really rolling a dice and playing for hits here.. How didn't they get sued for making this show, a movie, and millions of merchandise pieces? I don't even have to watch the show to know how bad it is. I'll leave that here. - RaccoonCartoon

"I think its terrible that they would put something like this on T.V." Yeah I think we can all agree on that.

2 Inhumanoids
3 Ghost Busters

Not to be confused with the 1984 Ghostbusters movie but it was based off an awful real live action T.V. show The Ghostbusters nothing really memorable about this one. - egnomac

4 Gilligan's Planet Gilligan's Planet

It's Gilligan's Island in space and that's pretty much it. - egnomac

5 The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang

This show literally makes no sense then again a lot of cartoons from the 80's made no sense but this is beyond ridicules, a spin off of Happy Days Fonzie, Ritchie and Ralph who are also joined by dog named Mr. Cool and a girl from the future as they find themselves lost in time as they try to get home while stopping off a different time periods. - egnomac

6 Saturday Supercade Saturday Supercade
7 Pac-Man
8 Hulk Hogan's Rock and Wrestling

This is the stupidest idea that could only have been done in the 80's staring several of WWE WWF at the time wrestlers including Hulg Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Junkyard Dog, Andre the Giant and several others of course none of the wrestlers did any of the voice acting no that you would expect them to. - egnomac

9 The Gary Coleman Show The Gary Coleman Show
10 The New Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show

Anything that has Scappy Doo in it is going to be bad. - egnomac
