Worst Cartoon Character Redesigns

LarkwingFlight
Basically, you can put any cartoon character who was redesigned, and it was bad.

The Top Ten

1 Larry the Cucumber - VeggieTales Larry the Cucumber - VeggieTales

As an 11 year old American boy, I loved the old veggie tales and still do, but these new design are anger inducing! They don't talk about God anymore!

Honestly, all of the characters are horrifying now. They used to be cheerful and happy, but are now scary! - LarkwingFlight

He looked awesome, but in the new series, he looks really weird. Why did they cancel the original for the new series? - RalphBob

My childhood...why... - RiverClanRocks

2 Bob the Builder - Bob the Builder Bob the Builder - Bob the Builder

Now he looks dumb and scary, as opposed to nice and happy! - LarkwingFlight

3 Shaggy - Scooby Doo Shaggy - Scooby Doo

They all have terrible redesigns, but Shaggy's is the worst! - LarkwingFlight

4 Papa Smurf - The Smurfs Papa Smurf - The Smurfs
5 Optimus Prime - Transformers Optimus Prime - Transformers Optimus Prime is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. Optimus Prime is consistently depicted as having strong moral character, excellent leadership, and sound decision-making skills, and possesses brilliant military tactics, powerful martial arts, and advanced alien weaponry.
6 Robin - Teen Titans GO! Robin - Teen Titans GO!
7 Bugs Bunny - The Looney Tunes Show Bugs Bunny - The Looney Tunes Show Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character, created by the staff of Leon Schlesinger Productions (later Warner Bros.) He is one of the most famous cartoon characters, and he is in the show Looney Tunes. His famous quote is "What's up doc?". He is a gray colored bunny with big teeth and big feet. His ...read more.

They aren't even Looney Tunes-ish at all anymore! - LarkwingFlight

8 Knuckles the Echidna - Sonic Boom Knuckles the Echidna - Sonic Boom

I have no problem with redesigns, but Sonic Boom made Knuckles look idiotic when he is actually supposed to be as smart as Sonic. Because of this, Knuckles is constantly mistaken as a "dumb muscle" when he shouldn't be... If Knux was really stupid, then why did he manage to find all the Master Emerald pieces in the Sonic Adventure games without question? Making him dumb does not make sense at all.

Man, I hate what they did to Knuckles in Boom. His personality and his design. They've turned him into a complete moron! He's even dumber than Patrick Star, but he's not funny AT ALL, unlike Patrick. - eventer51314

Isn't knuckles voiced by the guy who plays thor and the dad from good luck Charlie?

They made him Patrick Star. On STEROIDS. - TwilightKitsune

9 He-Man - The New Adventures of He-Man He-Man - The New Adventures of He-Man

What's going on? Oh, nothing, just a crappy redesign. - LarkwingFlight

10 Mega Man - Captain N Mega Man - Captain N Mega Man, known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom.

He doesn't look like MegaMan in that show. - Martinglez

The Contenders

14 Raven - Teen Titans Go!
15 Sonic - Sonic Boom
16 Ben Tennyson - Ben 10: Omniverse Ben Tennyson - Ben 10: Omniverse

I actually like the Alien Force and Ultimate Alien design, but I dislike his Omniverse design a lot. His 2016 reboot design isn't too good either. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He looks ugly in his new redesign, just like every other character in the show - TwilightKitsune
