Top 10 Worst Animators of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Ben Jones Ben Jones

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 Peter Browngardt Peter Browngardt

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

3 Noah Z. Jones Noah Z. Jones

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

GAH! He looks like Jared Fogle in that pic!

4 Seth MacFarlane 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.

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

5 Jimmy ScreamerClauz

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

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

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

6 David Feiss David Feiss

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

7 Sam Singer

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


8 Chris Savino 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.

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

I hate this guy - 445956

9 Danny Antonucci 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.

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

10 J. G. Quintel 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

I'm sorry, but to me, he obviously needs a different career. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

@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.

@Spacegoofsgeekerboy You obviously need to let other people do what they love to do and mind your own buisness.

I know he loves cartoons and his career in the industry, and I know he wanted to make his own show, but the problem is his art style is extremely poor. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The Contenders

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

19 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
