Top 10 Worst Animators of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Ben Jones

I hated the Problem Solverz even when I was 7 or 8. - KalloFox34

This is honestly the only item I agree with. At least he is at the top. - RalphBob

Yes, the same guy who made the Problem Solverz and Stone Quackers. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I can't think of one good thing he's produced. The Problem Solverz is godawful, scratch that, IRREDEMABLE, and Stone Quackers is irritating and tedious. Glad he's at #1.

2 Noah Z. Jones

Why does this guy need to create three shows? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

GAH! He looks like Jared Fogle in that pic!

3 Peter Browngardt Peter "Pete" Browngardt is an American animator, writer, voice actor, and producer, who is best known for being the creator of Cartoon Network's Uncle Grandpa, in which he also voices the title character and its early spin-off Secret Mountain Fort Awesome.

Uncle Grandpa was pretty bad to begin with, but Secret Mountain Fort Awesome shouldn't even have been green-lit. - KalloFox34

The Problem Solverz, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, and Uncle Grandpa. Otherwise known as the Trashy Three. I loathe the creators of these three abominations. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This dude created Secret Mountain Fort Awesome? Then he should be number 1 then, that is the worst cartoon I have ever seen. I voted for the creator of The Problem Solverz, but Peter is even worse.

Is he some sort of animation supervillain?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 Jimmy ScreamerClauz

This needs to be 1# and be locked in a asylum

He made Where the Dead Go to Die and When Black Birds Fly! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Why the frick is this guy below Pendleton Ward? - 445956

5 Seth MacFarlane Seth Woodbury MacFarlane is an American television producer, filmmaker, actor, and singer, working primarily in animation and comedy, as well as live-action and other genres.

What did he ever do? His cartoons were actually amazing (aside from the Cleveland Show, which was unnecessary and was responsible for King of the Hill getting cancelled). - KalloFox34

Thank god he's number 4. I never got what people (especially in the animation industry) see in this guy. This guy's just an overrated hack who made some of the most overrated adult cartoons in history.

He needs to return to Cartoon Network. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

He "needs to return" to whatever asylum let him slip out through the sanitary sewer.

That comment was beyond stupid. You don't like his shows, so you call him insane? - RalphBob

6 Sam Singer

Responsible for poorly-written and animated shows like Paddy the Pelican or Bucky and Pepito. The cartoons had next to no budget, the former show was a bunch of pencil sketches submitted as finished cartoons, and the latter was full of negative Mexican stereotypes. And the voice acting was pretty bad. - KalloFox34

He should be number #1. - kcianciulli

He's so bad that critics call him the "Ed Wood of animation".


7 Danny Antonucci Daniel Edward "Danny" Antonucci is a Canadian animator, director, producer, and writer. He is known for creating the Cartoon Network animated comedy series Ed, Edd n Eddy. He also created Lupo the Butcher, Cartoon Sushi, and The Brothers Grunt.

I'm glad he's here. None of his cartoons were any good. EEnE in particular is the definition of overrated. - KalloFox34

Really? He's on here? All because of Brothers Grunt? You guys gave me a reason why I shouldn't take you seriously.

Are we going to forget that he gave us The Brothers Grunt?

If only the Brothers Grunt never existed. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

8 David Feiss

Cow and Chicken, enough said. - KalloFox34

His art is very interesting. But why do his two shows need to rely on toilet humor? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

9 Steve Borst


10 Chris Savino Christopher Mason "Chris" Savino (born October 2, 1971 in Royal Oak, Michigan) is an American animator, writer, producer, director, and storyboard artist. He is best known as the creator of The Loud House on Nickelodeon.

Thank goodness, Nickelodeon finally had the nerve to fire him! Yes, I know, it was because he sexually harassed female co-workers, but I also wish that this was also because of what he did to the 2010s for animated shows! I'd imagine if Cartoon Network fired him after what he did with Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls.

Now that he's been fired, I am going to be so happy that the Loud House is going to improve without him.

He ruined Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls, so he deserved to be suspended from his own show.

Am I the only one who actually likes the later episodes of The Powerpuff Girls? I love both the old and new episodes, not counting the reboot. Even though I wish the later episodes had more blood to them, I liked the later episodes, they are enjoyable.

I hate this guy - 445956

You thought Seth MacFarlane was bad? THIS GUY needs to return to whatever asylum let him slip out through the sanitary sewer.

The Contenders

11 Eric Robles

He brought about the downfall of Nick with Fanboy and Chum Chum

He worked on the masterpiece Billy and Mandy and then made.. that. - 445956


Wait, this guy worked on Billy & Mandy? - kcianciulli

12 J. G. Quintel

Dude, J.G. Is a super chill dude and while I don't watch Regular Show, his short films were hilarious, his interviews are funny, and he's obviously really talented. Or maybe now I'm defending him because I'm starting to see that animation is really difficult and that anyone willing to work their lives on this craft well enough to be successful or have a hit show has to be both crazy and awesome. - keycha1n

@SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy Wow..just wow. Hating the show (that most people like) is one thing, but wishing for the creator to quit his job because of it? You seriously act like the world revolves around you. Nostalgiatards like you need to stop living in the past and grow up.

13 Todd Kauffman

I know he can make a good cartoon, but Sidekick and Grojband were god awful! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I love him because he made the best Canadian cartoon ever. - regularponyfan09

14 Ryan Quincy

I never liked Out There on IFC, and I'm sure as hell, I'm not gonna like watching Future-Worm! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Out There ain't that bad.

15 Scott Fellows

He was decent on the Fairly OddParents, but Johnny Test was a pretty bad show. - KalloFox34

He's awful at Canadian cartoons. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

16 John Kricfalusi Michael John Kricfalusi /ˌkrɪsfəˈluːsi/, better known as John K., is a Canadian animator, voice actor, producer, writer, and director best known for creating The Ren & Stimpy Show and founding the animation company Spümcø.

Do we forgive you for making R&S APC?
Yes, we do.

Do we forgive for preying on underage girls?
No, we do not forgive you for that.
- IceBearRules

He all know why he's here. Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon. Dear God, let the man do what he wants. Don't force him!

Why is he her--Oh wait, I know why. Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon*.

EVEN HE admits that he was forced by Spike T.V. to make it very raunchy.

Too bad he is such a jerk to his own fans! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Tried to rape minors. enough said.

17 Jim Jinkins James "Jim" Jinkins is an American animator and creator of the animated Doug television series which was later the basis for a feature film.

He's a childhood contributor

Says the demonic sadist who thinks cartoons should copy his work. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

He created some of the most bland cartoons I have ever seen. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

18 Craig McCracken Craig McCracken is an American animator, director and producer. He is best known for creating the Emmy-winning animated series The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends for Cartoon Network, as well as writing and storyboarding for Oscar's Oasis and Dexter's Laboratory in Kids' WB. more.

What did he ever make that was bad (aside from Wander over Yonder, which is still more mediocre than actually bad)? - KalloFox34

Why is this guy here? He created the Powerpuff Girls, Wander Over Yonder, and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

19 Ralph Bakshi
20 Nick Jennings

At least Savino keeped the PPG alive and his episodes were actually great, though not as great as it was with Craig McCracken. Nick Jennings and Bob Boyle created one of the worst reboots of all time, the PPG reboot.

He's 1000000000x worse than Savino, and so is Bob Boyle - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

21 C.H. Greenblatt Carl Harvey "C. H." Greenblatt is an American cartoon screenwriter, producer, and storyboard artist. He has worked on the hit TV series SpongeBob SquarePants, and on the Cartoon Network's series The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne. He is best known as the creator of Chowder, as well more.

Chowder wasn't good, but Harvey Beaks was a great cartoon! - KalloFox34

@KalloFox34 You are a hypocrite. - RegularShowFTWTTGFTL

Am I the only one who HATES this guy?!

22 Paul Tibbitt Paul Harrison Tibbitt is an American animator, television producer, writer, storyboard artist, songwriter, and voice actor, best known for working on the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants.

No, Casey Alexander did.

He ruined SpongeBob.

23 Walt Disney Walter Elias "Walt" Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons.

Those rumors about him being racist and/or an anti-semite are FALSE. - KalloFox34

24 Arlene Klasky

I just hate Klasky Csupo's productions, except for Aaahh! Real Monsters and Duckman. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

At least she has talent unlike any person who works on TTG. - kcianciulli

25 Jaiden Animations


Evil and greedy.

Has a patreon. Enough said.

26 Kenny Scharf
27 Simon Wells
28 Pendleton Ward Pendleton "Pen" Ward is an American animator, screenwriter, producer, and voice actor who works for Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator Studios. He created the Emmy Award-winning series Adventure Time and the internet series Bravest Warriors.

30 Ben Gruber

He worked on Superjail!, Teen Titans Go!, SpongeBob (season 10), and Breadwinners! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

31 Stephen Warbrick
32 Mark Hentemann

Never heard of 3 South, but Bordertown is just a lame Family Guy wannabe with an uglier version of Seth MacFarlane's artstyle. - KalloFox34

He made 3 South and Bordertown! TWO SHOWS THAT SUCK! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

33 Kyle A. Carrozza

This guy yelled at someone on Facebook just because that person said he wasn't a fan of Fanboy and Chum Chum. - kcianciulli

34 Bob Boyle

This guy sucks at Cartoon Network - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

35 Skyler Page

Clarence sucks! Honestly, I have no idea why that show has a fanbase, because he's the CN equivalent of Chris Savino, seeing as how they got fired from their own sows for the exact same reasons. - KalloFox34

Thank god he's fired from his own show. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

36 Thurop Van Orman

His shows weren't even bad. Why is he here? - KalloFox34

He made Flapjack and was a supervising producer for Sanjay and Craig.

37 Magnus Carlsson
