Worst Cartoon Characters of All Time

This list contains the most annoying, hated, and most overrated cartoon characters of all

The Top Ten

1 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer" her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend Boots .

Stupid (silly voice) dora wheres the mountain THERE so wheres the mountain SHUT UP DORA YOU SPAZ have you seen the mountain yet FOR GOODNESS SAKE YES

God this chick needs to go specsavers ASAP, honestly. Like how old is she now and yet she can't see a flipping mountain.

Dora is STUPID
Dora:where is the mountain?

That's because her show is meant for little kids. Now stop typing in all caps if you don't want to look like a moron. Also, what kind of insult is "stupid head"? Are you ten years old?

Worst cartoon all time...

2 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

She should be number 1! She's such a festive annoyance, and she deserves to get kicked in the Burt and punched in the face. Also, she needs to have tape on her mouth because she talks too much. Whoever put her on here wins a gold medal, but seriously, why is she number 10 here? Also, I hope that you guys check out my own list "Top 10 Things that should happen to Peppa Pig"!

Peppa pig was most of my childhood, and I enjoyed her shows a lot, and don't laugh at me for this, but when I am at my dad's house with my little sister who's 2, I quite enjoy watching Peppa pig with her. The only thing I really dislike about this show is that Peppa is a selfish little brat who 1. bullies her little brother by telling him he does everything wrong! He's only 2! What do you expect?! 2. Things the world revolves around her, and puts herself before her friends 3. Fat shames her own father! I am not fat but I am not skinny either, but it's just unacceptable to tell your own father that he is fat! I just want to kidnap this girl when her family isn't looking and sell her to Gregg's (British sausage roll place)!

I know this is a 'worst' top ten list, but I feel I should just find the bat and smash the glass. Peppa Pig isn't all that bad. Everyone finds her as a wada wada 5-minute fest of whine that needs poo-poo parodies where she gets diarrhea. Peppa Pig is whiny but she's only whiny on some episodes. Most of them we don't even notice... And now George, and yes I know this is about PEPPA Pig, but let's move on to George. People say he only says 'dinosaur' and nothing else, One word: NO. He's said brontosaurus, tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, yuck, no, Mummy, etc. So you DO NOT deserve to say that. And they say he's unteachable, well what do you expect from a 2 year old? And Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig are kind of hateable, but not too hateable, as they're kind of fun. But sometimes full-blown ridiculous. And some people, the millisecond they flick onto her channel instantly think about bacon. -. -

Step one: Add a totally annoying, pointless, unlikable character like Scrappy Doo.

4 Eugene H. Krabs Eugene H. Krabs Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

I just hate Krabs. He is disgusting because he wiped his butt with his millionth dollar bill in "Clams". He is also a pervert because he aired a show called "Live Nude Pranksters", and the performing is really bad. He will do anything to not only gain money, but also he doesn't want to pay for things either. He gave Pearl dead batteries for Christmas, sold Spongebob's soul to the Flying Dutchman for 62 cents. He is also nosy because he wanted Spongebob to spy on Pearl on her sleepover. He also is aggressive and barked at his customers when they were going to pick up money. Krabs, we are sick of you.

His worst feat was in the episode One Coarse Meal, where he treated Plankton to suicide with his "whale" scheme, since Plankton is afraid of whales. - nelsonerica

I hate Mr Krabs the way he almost made Plankton commit suicide and got away with it. And also how he is so cheap he wouldn't even spend 1 dollar and when he had to he broke down crying.

Three reasons this should be 1

1. Krabs threatened to rip someones arm off for a penny

2. Krabs tryed to get SpongeBob in jail just so Krabs wouldn't spend less than two dollars (Patty Caper)


Oh and Krabs tortured Gary for money and wouldn't let Plankton have ONE customer. Who do you think is any more soul-less than Krabs?

Don't forget about firing SpongeBob so he can receive a whole nickel - sryanbruen

First of all, I like krabs as a character and sometimes he does go to far but its just him, its mr.Krabs for heavens sake! he's supposed to be cheap. What happens if suddenly mr.krabs donates to charity? or gives pearl more than 1 dollar of allowance money? would anyone be happy? I know I wouldn't cause its just not mr.krabs. Yes sometimes he does go overboard with the cheapness but not everyone is perfect I mean even spongebob was a jerk once in a while.

5 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.

This, should be number one on the hit list. EVERYTHING IS CRAPPY! The voices are annoying you suspect everything, like one time Johnny said "it would be great If we had some cookies" and then a random plate of cookies fell out of the sky -_-. Where's the creativity?

Is there someone so stupid for let his repellent sisters for make him their Guinea pig?

To the genetic throwback who's "brain child" this is;

That someone would think that this lying, cheating, lazy, inept, socially retarded, maladjusted,
Whiney, friendless ego-maniacal brat is their definition of "the cool kid", is proof positive that even
Pissant-hack-virgins can get a job in the animation industry.
They can symbionic Titan in one season for lack of toy tie-ins, yet this visual diarrhea gets AirPlay!?
(am I upset? Do I sound upset? Ok maybe a little... )

Johnny yells that really bothers me.

6 Spongebob Squarepants Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

Seriously the first few years were awesome but just went downhill and what was the point of the episode when he got round pants the was stupid!

Personally I like spongebob for entertainment purposes, but I'm an adult and can see all of the hypocrisy. Every character on the show except sandy are all morally bankrupt. Any parent who lets their children watch this cartoon, are to the problem if kids not knowing right from wrong. Spongebob is a serial criminal hypocrite. He's always saying he doesn't lie and that lowing is wrong. Spongebob lies in many, many episodes, it would be hard to count all his lies. As a police officer, I'm amazed at the amount of serious crimes spongebob has committed in the past 14 years. Serial stalking on squidward. Breaking and entering over and over, felony distruction of property (destroying squidward house and the the whole city of bikini bottom several times. The list goes on and on, including murdering someone. In the episode bubble buddy, spongebob bury someone in the sand and left him there to be killed by the tide. Lastly, what's nickelodeons problem with families and family structure. No ...more

Spongebob is now so overrated. I laughed when watching older episodes of Spongebob, but I can't stand this yellow, porous jerk. Squidward yells at Spongebob and reacts in higher extremes these days because of New Spongebob! Let him absorb poison and DIE!

SpongeBob had some bad episodes but Patrick is worse Patrick should be 1#

7 Brian Griffin Brian Griffin Brian H. Griffin, popularly known without his middle initial as Brian Griffin, is a fictional character from the animated television series Family Guy.

Brian is without a doubt, the worst cartoon character ever. Which wasn't at all the case before 2005, before 05, Brian was a funny and deep character. Now he is such a liberal douchebag that it makes real liberals, or at least decent liberals, ashamed to be associated with him. I would know.

Now other terrible cartoon characters on this list are bad because they are really annoying, complete jerks (sometimes intentional sometimes unintentional), or just poorly written.

Brian however is all of the above, and the worst part is that Seth MacFarlane actually wants us to agree and feel for him. Instead I just end up hating him even more.

Luckily however he wasn't such a douchebag in the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover which was the one Family Guy episode I decided to watch in five years.

The sad thing is, I used to love Brian. Road to Rhode Island is one of my favourite episodes of Family Guy, and his dry, sarcastic humour coupled with Stewie's antics had me laughing for hours. Now, unfortunately, he's been turned into a self-righteous hippy douche and has lost any depth he used to possess. He's just used as a soapbox for the creators to spout their own beliefs out of. I can't help but cringe whenever he starts another one of his hippy rants, because it makes me remember the fantastic character he used to be- the dry straightman to Peter's idiotic schemes, and the only one in the household that could match Stewie's intelligence and wit. Now, he's been reduced to a hypocritical moron. It honestly makes me sad.

Preachy, conceded, opinionated, hypocritical douche. What else is there to say?

Jesus Christ, what's wrong with you people? The liberal atheist you talk about and hate all the time is SETH MACFARLANE, not Brian, and you should already know.Brian is the one who has always been the most decent character on the show and the least monstrous if you really think about it.He's been my favorite character since I saw the first episode and I haven't seen him do anything as bad as what the other characters have done throughout the show.I actually had no idea that people hate him and I can justify most of the bad things he's done, because unlike most people I've watched the show carefully and can say that the majority of people who hate him is as ignorant as Quagmire and probably hasn't watched the show carefully like I did.It just quickly jumps to conclusions and agreed with Quagmire's idiotic rant when Quagmire is the second worst character on the show after Peter.Now that Family Guy stopped being funny, turned into more of a reality show and is just a money cow for FOX to ...more

8 Peter Griffin Peter Griffin Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Allow me to explain the difference between, say Homer Simpson, and Peter Griffin. Both are stupid, both can be selfish, both can be needlessly cruel. HOWEVER where Homer, at least originally, lived for his family and actually does feel bad for the sadness caused by his stupidity, Peter simply doesn't give a hell.

He is a bastard, there is no other way to put it. He is neglectful, a child abuser, and an all around monster. He has NO redeeming qualities.

But you know the worst part? Seth McFarlene says that he is 'retarded'. Peter Griffin is not retarded, he is what McFarlene, the ignorant and arrogant piece of refuse that he is, THINKS is 'retarded'.

In short, he is an underdeveloped, underwritten, no-value character. - SquallAce

He is a jerk and he's always mean to meg

I hope Homer kills this guy!
He should also adopt Meg.

This guy is inappropriate because his chin looks like a pair of testis. - Hellohi

9 Lisa Simpson Lisa Simpson Lisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.

In the first few seasons of The Simpsons, Lisa was a little more more believable and she would often misbehave just as frequently as Bart, this let viewers know that she was only a child. Then her portrayal went downhill when she lost her childlike innocence, gained arrogance and became an antagonistic plot device for the shows unorthodox plots. In other words she became the shows voice of reason when it wasn't really needed in the first place, you might hear a joke on The Simpsons and find the mindlessness funny, only for killjoy Lisa to explain the joke and pinpoint the negativity in the joke itself reducing the humour. So much for being subtle, Lisa has become increasingly more annoying as the show has progressed and is now a useless addition to the show. It's little wonder why fans have grown to despise the show over Lisa and her irritating mannerisms.

Ugh! She wines about killing animals? People Should stop feeling sorry for her, she's good in the first 6 seasons, though.

She always complains about nuclear power but that is way better than burning fossil fules. Maggie is way more smarter than Lisa - Chowder

Put her a lot higher! - ConorDooley

10 Caillou Caillou

Caillou is more like a toddler version of Jar Jar Binks. His whiny voice is more annoying than Jar Jar Banks, and that's saying something cause Jar Jar Binks is a perfect definition of annoying. But Caillou takes annoyance, brattiness, whining, tantrum throwing and crying to a whole new level. He refuses to share with his friends, never listens to his parents, and always wants things to go his way. In one episode, he smashes a toy car and throws a tantrum and starts crying all because his parents won't take him to the circus. He also steals from cookie jars and gets upset whenever he is forced to share with his sister Rosie. Caillou is by far the most selfish and spoiled cartoon character of all time, worse than Johnny Test as a matter of fact. Parents should ban their kids from watching Caillou, because it's only going to turn them into tantrum throwing whiny spoiled brats rather than lovable caring kids.

Caillou should just die from cancer and also should get a fist shoved down his throat. He doesn't even grow up and has multiple-personality disorder where he acts like everybody. He also overreacts sometimes when he can't get himself right and when he cries. Not only that, but he sometimes treats people like crap and doesn't learn his lesson.

He is such a pissy! Why is Timmy Turner above this? They should trade places! Calliou needs to grow up!

This character is retarded. - tageneislover

11 Finn - Adventure Time

I realize why Finn is so high on the list. It's the fact that haters of Adventure Time who don't even WATCH the show wage a war on Finn based on the single fact that he is the show's main character. That's it. Seriously. Pathetic, I know. If you took the time out of "busy" schedule to watch this cartoon, you'd learn that Finn is compassionate, relatable, enjoyable, cool, funny, and definitely NOT deserving a spot this high. Do not single a character out as terrible on a show that you are probably too much of a moron to understand. I'm done.

Finn is so annoying. Terrible character, his "adventures" are not even adventures. Really really overrated show. He is just a bland character.

You haters are worse than the fans. You say it's ripoff of Mario and Zelda. What?! - Drawbox

Actually, I've watched the show for years and I honestly don't like Finn anymore. Season 5. That's all it took. One episode. That got me to hate Adventure Time and everything about it. I can't believe I used to be a fan.
Finn has an annoying voice, and I thought he was supposed to be friends with Jake. Why aren't Finn and Jake going on adventures together anymore? Literally every episode now: side character needs to do something introduce new character even if unneeded, call Finn and talk for about two seconds.
What kind of character is that? Finn is no longer a main character. Why don't they just get rid of him completely if they're not gonna put him in episodes?

Finn's epic why do people hate him.

12 Flapjack - The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack Flapjack - The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

This show is weird. One time I saw an episode where k'nuckles ate a bunch of hot dogs to get a free pair of pants and he exploded and a blood like substance was everywhere! I'm glad there are not anymore new episodes.

Lol that is the only episode I remember other than the "Candy Wife" one. But I love Flapjack. - RedTheGremlin

He has literally the most annoying voice I have ever heard on television ever. The show is general is horrible, weird and a terrible way, and just plain scary. The character's design is also weird and disgusting.

I honestly really like this show. The characters were great together and it all just suited my type of humor. Like, the art and concept was pretty cool and stuff, and the show was different from the crappy shows on Cartoon Network today. Instead of helping others all day every day, they actually had a life (kinda).

I would've enjoyed this cartoon so much more if the main character Flapjack didn't exist. Flapjack is one of the most annoying protagonists of any cartoon I've ever seen. His voiced is so high pitched and annoying it makes me cringe so hard. I don't hate the actual cartoon, I love k'nuckles and some of the side characters, but Flapjack is such a pointless one-dimensional character who comes off as rather annoying than likable.

13 Naruto Naruto Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Such a horrible main character for a T.V. show. He was extremely annoying like SpongeBob. His voice is irritating. Unlike SpongeBob, he matured but when he did mature the show got extremely boring due to endless filler episodes and being way too serious. SpongeBob did the opposite of maturing. SpongeBob became immature, obnoxious, and gay adult with the intelligence of a brick. Naruto is a immature, obnoxious, and a perverted little kid. Naruto hangs out with this man who is a sage who is perverted. Naruto invented this jutsu known has super sexy jutsu and it turns him into a girl. That is not funny. It is just immature and pain wrong. When he is not doing those stupid things I mentioned above, he is fighting. The action of the show is decent but there are so many things that are better written, have more action, and do not have an annoying protagonist. The fights on Naruto are decent but they drag on forever. They spent an entire season fighting Zabuza. The plot doesn't lead to ...more

I didn't vote for Naruto, but I actually think he's a great character. He's the epitome of character development- a selfish, slightly bratty prankster matures into someone who cares deeply about his best friends. The voice acting (in Japanese) is also done extremely well, and I think all of the voices suit the characters to a T- including Naruto. Don't even get me started on the soundtrack (AMAZING). I'm not really a Narutard, but I've retained fond memories of it from my childhood, and watching it now, I can see why. It's probably the only show that can make me laugh hysterically for minutes straight. It's also the only show that can reduce me to tears. I highly recommend watching it.

Naruto was pretty much as good / interesting / whatever, as dragonball when it started.
But the whole "Ninja" concept collapsed pretty fast, and by the end of the series, this is actually
Becoming a harry potter clone. Nothing you have learned makes any sense anymore, nothing that was established in the past needs to be true in the future.

Evil guystry to gather the worlds 9 only Pokemon.
They manage to catch 7.
Pokemon 8 and 9 are hiding, so the bad guy can't combine them into one big god Pokemon.
All of the sudden, the bad guys DO have the the eight Pokemon, while he ALSO is STILL hiding, and ALSO, they SUDDENLY don't need the 9th Pokemon anymore. The ninth Pokemon once bit someone in the foot, and they just use the foot for the summoning...

Just... REALLY? 500 episodes ago you needed like TEN people, 24 hours, AND the WHOLE Pokemon, to transfer it into the "Pokemon combiner statue", and all of a sudden, you just need something... ...more

This should be number 1. - tageneislover

This is what I wanna sing: I hate you, YOU hate me, GET OUT OF MY FAMILY, With a great big punch Barney hits the floor, No more purple dinosaur. I hate this show so much because I can't tell if it teaches us kids to be happy, or there is something wrong with him. He acts like Pedobear.

One of the most BORRINGEST shows EVER and has a very, very STUPID song to it!

I wish godzilla trampled barney to death

15 Ren Höek - Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon

They turned the best character of the original ren and stimpy into a extremely psychotic person who kills people and has the worst cartoon episode ever (Ren seeks help) We know ren is crazy but this is going too far

I love Ren in the original series, but in my opinion, the writers went WAY too far in Adult Party Cartoon. (It's TOTALLY okay if you disagree)

He killed animals for Christ ache he should be at number 11 or 12 at least.

The fake Ren is worse than PinkSheep, he's THAT awful. - BlueBobYT

16 Winslow T. Oddfellow Winslow T. Oddfellow

I loved the episode when CatDog sells him as "Mean Mouse". I got mad when he came back, but he was trapped in a box and Dog wanted to put him in the bottom of the toy chest. I don't like Winslow at all. He's just a jerk.

Well one thing is this whole entire list is more of a least favorite list than an ugliest list because the only one that IS ugly is Vicky.

No! Not Winslow! I love him! It's the Greasers who should be on this list!

I don't understand why he'd be on the list... he's ok with me.. :' - Katildalover93

17 Vicky - The Fairly Oddparents Vicky - The Fairly Oddparents Vicky is one of the two main antagonists of Nickelodeon's The Fairly OddParents. She is one of Timmy's most personal enemies and his remorseless, arrogant, and cruel babysitter.

She's so mean to poor ole Timmy Turner. Timmy is so nice and yet has to put up with this demon of a baby-sitter known as Vicky. No wonder Timmy got Fairy God Parents.

To Stephen2:I put it it there, but if I were you, it wouldn't matter to me. Because, SpongeBob
Is a very annoying cartoon character to me but not to you. Just like Eric Cartman is very entertaining cartoon character to me. So, don't call me a stupid idiot. Vicky all the way for me. I hate her guts so much! - nallimcamybloc

She is so mean to Timmy. She tells Timmy's parents that she will take care of Timmy butt when Timmy's parents are gone she abuses Timmy and makes his life hard.

She's a prick, but she's not as bad as Chloe. - BlueSheepYT

19 Rigby Rigby Rigby is a character from the cartoon Regular Show created by JG Quintel. He's best friends with Mordecai (A talking Blue Jay). Together they slack around and have fun in the park. A place where they work and have the risk of being fired from.


Why did someone put poor Rigby on this list - personface

In my opinion rigby is one of the worst characters in regular show, he rarely even is a great guy, he only cares about partying and being a un-moving rock sitting on a couch and not actually doing anything productive in his life, he purposely annoys his boss like he thinks nothing wrong is gonna happen, he mostly doesn't care about others problems unless it effects him, and half the time he always helps people in the lousiest and worst possible way, and when he's not doing any of that he's just being utterly stupid, again it's an opinion, so it doesn't mean I'm saying you're not allowed to like him, you're allowed to say whatever you like about him, I just don't like him.

I love Rigby. He's my favorite. - RedTheGremlin

20 Olga Pataki - Hey Arnold Olga Pataki - Hey Arnold

There should be Hey Arnold Alternative Universe wherever Olga and Lila were directly born related to each other as biological sisters and Helga and Patty also were directly born related to each other as biological sisters also as well so far too.

It's sad. She tries so hard to be nice and yet she comes off as one of the worst characters. Oh well, she only shows up in a few episodes.

She embarrassed her little sister in class at school in the episode, "Student Teacher"

Olga should marry Ruth or Ruth should marry Lila.
