Worst Animated TV Shows


The Top Ten

1 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig. It ran from May 25th, 2013 to July 29th, 2016.

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.

Where should I begin?

so cringey

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.

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.

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.

Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy are ugly and stupidest and useless pony ever. And now the stories are getting boring, and boring, brownies are getting decreasing. Even the girls don't like it anymore

Should be number 1

3 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2014) is an American 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.

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

If Dora is so stupid that she can not see something she is literally standing next to, she should not be allowed to wander around by herself.

So stupid that Barney the Purple Dinosaur Once said to her "I hate You, You hate me I Don't like you so commit suicide! "

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

4 Teen Titans Go

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.

Worst show in the history of television worse than anything that came before or after it

Please die titans

It’s pretty bad, I don’t really like the humor. Also it’s over played.

5 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.

6 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.

"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


7 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.

I'm pretty sure that show gave people seizures.

The sad part was this was actually made in Adobe Flash

Worst animation and this was probably done in MS Paint.


8 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.

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

This is the worst show in today's history.

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.

9 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...

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 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

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

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)

Terrible, nauseating!

Bad show but catchy meme

14 Boondocks Boondocks The Boondocks is an American adult animated sitcom on Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim.

Whoever Added This Show On List Either Has NO Sense Of Humor At All Or Just Gets Easy Offended By A Show That's Actually Trying To Be Funny.

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 show is just awful

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

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.

18 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.

The ...read more.

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

I'm just a kid who's three each day I drink some pee

36 Doraemon Doraemon Doraemon is a fictional character in the Japanese manga and anime series of the same name created by Fujiko Fujio, the pen name of writing team Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko.

I enjoyed it when I was young. But when I am older, I can understand why this show is on the list. - AnLSUQB

The show is nothing but a poorly animated rip-off of Tom & Jerry. Worst part is the annoying theme song.

Got banned because of a scene that showed FEMALE BREAKS ON A KIDS' SHOW!

Saw this when I was little and it was freaky.
