This is a awesome show no votes

It’s good But too much immature farting humor

I've seen a lot of cartoons in my 20 years on this planet and I can honestly say that it is the absolute worst cartoon I've ever seen nothing but toilet humor I couldn't even make it to the end of the pilot because it was so gross and had such a stupid concept a butt transplant really? What kind of person in their right mind came up with the idea for this show and why did he think it was a good idea period and yet critics loved it what is wrong with critics they give the good movies and T.V. shows bad reviews and the bad ones good reviews and all the bad T.V. shows get to stay on while the bad ones get to stay on what's up with that

I'm a cartoon fan. I love cartoons. But Sanjay and Craig is so watered down with fart jokes and level one humor I find it harder to watch than Honey Boo Boo.

2 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver . Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and ...read more.

It's not that bad.

The show is made for little girls yet teenage boys started getting into it and started making dark comics about them like they did at school. I hate this show now because it doesn't make any sense. Pinkie Pie keeps jumping and those fillies are impatient to get their cutie marks.

Should be number 1

I'm sorry, I know loads of people like this show but I just can't stand. Now I will give it that the character Spike and the villain were good, I just hate all the other characters and the animation. Don't get me started on the infamous fan group known as the Bronies because while I do like people that are Bronies, its just that some of them do outrageous things that I wont mention here.

3 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

At least Sanjay and Craig have had a handful of decent episodes (most of them are brain fittingly awful) but I have not seen a decent episode of this woeful crud, somebody must have overdosed when they came up with this, how else can turn ducks into toad looking creatures with the dumbest names that someone could dream up...? little wonder children appear to be spaced out these days.

This show makes all of the other cartoons on my list look like Citizen Kane. The animation is the worst, the characters Sway Sway and Buh-Deuce are the worst, the humor is the worst and the theme song is one of the worst. I hate this show so much that I just absolutely gave up with Nickelodeon. All of the other shows were bad but none were as bad as this train wreck. Breadwinners, the worst animated show of all time. The fact that this show is still airing with new episodes just baffles me.

This sack of crap should be at number one for its lazy flash animation, stupid rap-like songs, stock images, and annoying characters

It just sucks so bad, it needs to die.

4 Teen Titans Go Teen Titans Go

This is bad starfire is a bad character robin is a physco cyborg and beast boy are rude to girls raven is always mean

Please die titans

This show ruins teen titans >:(

Hey, remember that awesome Teen Titans show that got cancelled about 8 years ago and the so many good things about it? Well lets make another Teen Titans show but do everything wrong. This show is basically Johnny Test playing superheros. With horrible animation, godawful characters especially Beast Boy and Cyborg and the worst songs you will ever hear, worse than Breadwinners.

5 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2014) is an American preschool educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.

How is this getting a live action movie adaptation

This is meant for kids. She is not deaf or blind. IT IS MEANT FOR YOUNG CHILDREN TO LEARN!

Why on earth is a little girl going around on her own with a monkey? That is bad parenting right there. - AnLSUQB

I hate this show! I still wonder why I used to love it when I was younger. Dora is so blind and she's deaf. When I was her age (7 years old), I could locate things easily and I'm sure everyone could and that goes for when (maybe everyone else too) I was younger than 7. - BlueBeagle

6 Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by Eric Robles for Nickelodeon. It is based on Fanboy, an animated short created by Robles for Nicktoons and Frederator Studios, which was broadcast August 14, 2009 to July 12, 2014 on Random! Cartoons. The series was first ...read more.

This is the worst show in today's history.

What kind of a title is this, it sounds like the name of a comic by a 2 year old though the writers themselves were
Probably 2 year olds when they thought of this travesty. Like Mr Pickles, the animation is really ugly and unfunny, idiotic, childish (which I do know they go to school but they have jobs for some reason) and just forgettable. The pacing it self is awful and the adventures they go on are just random and weird.

The ugliest cgi I have ever seen

Personnally, I think this cartoon isn't that bad.Ok it's not the best but it's not like BrainSlaughters,sometimes it can be V E R Y idiot but I love it personnally.

7 Ren And Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon Ren And Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

Well this is disturbing like very very very disturbing. If you take all the disgusting moments from SpongeBob, base it on a really strange but funny cartoon from the 90s and add in some shock humor then this is pretty much what you get. Its amazing how such a failure this show is and how unfunny this cartoon but it is not as bad the number one spot on my list which is...

8 Johnny Test Johnny Test Johnny Test is an American-Canadian animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation, for the first season, and Cookie Jar, for the remainder of the series.

Why do you guys hate this (although I finished it) it’s very good but still I kinda see why a cheater, two half selfish and torcheristical genius girls and a dog who says he has a rare hair disorder would land on this list


"Writing? What's writing? "

The animation is horrible... Johnny is not funny, Mari and Susan are annoying Duckey is decent.. sorta. Why are they're so many bad guys
Bling Bling, The Cat, Ice Man... And more. I can't believe its still going

9 The Problem Solverz The Problem Solverz The Problem Solverz is an American animated television series that aired on Cartoon Network. Created by Ben Jones, it follows Alfe, Horace, and Roba, a group of detectives in their troubled town, Farboro.

The sad part was this was actually made in Adobe Flash

I'm pretty sure that show gave people seizures.

Worst animation and this was probably done in MS Paint.


10 The Brothers Grunt The Brothers Grunt The Brothers Grunt is a Canadian animated comedy television series by Ed, Edd n Eddy creator Danny Antonucci that originally aired from August 15, 1994 to April 9, 1995 on MTV.

I can't believe this was made by the same creator for Ed Edd n Eddy.

12 The Nutshack The Nutshack The Nutshack is an American adult animated TV series created by Ramon Lopez, and co-created by Jesse Hernandez.

Terrible, nauseating!

Badly animated, horrible animation, confusing story lines, the worst intro I have ever heard and some of the most awful characters ever. That's all I have to say.

You mentioned the animation twice (although it is bad)

The only good things to ever come out of this show are the memes. - PerfectImpulseX

13 Hammerman Hammerman Hammerman is a Saturday morning cartoon, produced by DIC Entertainment and starring pop rapper MC Hammer, which aired for thirteen episodes on ABC in 1991.

It all started a long time ago, when someone at DIC thought Hammerman was good idea! - PerfectImpulseX

14 Mega Babies Mega Babies Mega Babies is a Canadian animated series created by the Tremblay brothers, Christian and Yvon, who previously had made the H-B's show SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron.

Easily THE worst show on this list. - xandermartin98

15 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

This series had so much potential, all wasted. No real villain or plot, or anything to really keep the story going, little to no character development. Season 1 is almost unwatchable.

This show is just awful

16 Secret Mountain Fort Awesome Secret Mountain Fort Awesome Secret Mountain Fort Awesome is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt that debuted in 2011 on Cartoon Network. The show revolves around a fraternity of five monsters who unleash wild stunts upon the public from their eponymous mountain fort. The show is loosely based on ...read more.

It should have bypassed the T.V. and have gone straight to the garbage and even home video.
Offensive on so many levels.

17 The Loud House The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. ...read more.

This show's good, but incredibly overrated. - iDontCareFAM

So bad, worn out and stale jokes you can tell whats coming I wish it was higher

Retarted how you put this on this list. This show is actually good

Why would you put this on the list die!


Where's is the amazing world of gumball that is far by the worst cartoon/show every made in history seriously it's so bad I lost hope for humanity just because is not on the list that show should be number 1

19 Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket is an American animated television series created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan for Nickelodeon.

Go to hell pig goat

20 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

This show does NOT deserve a spot on this list. It has a clever sense of humor that can be extremely relatable to kids in the 21st century. Although I do agree it does have some bad episodes, I think it is well written an hilarious.

21 Uncle Grandpa Uncle Grandpa Uncle Grandpa is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt for Cartoon Network that premiered on the network on September 2, 2013. The series is based on Browngardt's animated short of the same name from The Cartoonstitute.

This list is great! - hockeykid58

22 PJ Masks PJ Masks PJ Masks is an animated children's television series produced by Entertainment One, Frog Box, and TeamTO.

Where do I begin...

So boring and annoying. As usual, 1 girl character flanked by two boy characters. Because the opposite would make it too girly I guess. Very heavy handed with the messaging- presumably made for very slow childreb. No humour for the adults to enjoy.

23 Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go! is an American animated educational interactive children's television program that originally aired on the Nickelodeon children's cable network in the United States and produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio .

Its all about peeing

Most controversial program on Disney Junior. Both parents and grandparents hate it!

31 Mr Pickles Mr Pickles

Let me describe to you in two words about this show, boring and ugly. It may be a adult show but Mr Pickles thinks it can be funny by having gore and rude jokes in it. As you can guess it does not work as a comedy neither a adult cartoon. As mentioned before the animation is hideous in a bad way and the characters are bland and forgettable. Overall, Mr Pickles fails as a comedy and is just utter garbage.

It's about a Satanic dog. Enough said. - RiverClanRocks

32 American Dad American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

Unbearable to watch and uninteresting, and it doesn't teach kids anything important. The point of a animated pre-school show is to teach children morals, there are no good morals in this show. The only thing it teaches kids is that it's ok to act like a spoiled brat and throw tantrums when things don't go your way
