Top 10 Worst Cartoon Finales

Here are some of the worst finales to any cartoon ever.
The Top Ten
1 Stimpy's Pregnant (Ren & Stimpy: "Adult Party Cartoon")

Whilst all of the Adult Party Cartoons episodes are completely the worst of all in animation history, this is the one where we end Ren and Stimpy's story? And this is the thanks all the fans of the old show get? Heck no!

I'd say how Ren and Stimpy's story really ended was in "The Last Temptation", which was a season five episode, and was the last episode of the original series. After Ren saves Stimpy from choking on some turkey, he and Stimpy have their stuff now owned by Wilbur Cobb (even though, he already died in season four, but he came back as a guardian angel of Ren after the episode from season four where he died by falling asleep, falling flat on his face to a fire pit; don't do that if you want to go to sleep, you guys). this leads the main duo to cry like babies in the end, see? That is how the story completely ends, Stimpy's Pregnant is something that ends Ren and Stimpy in a bad way.

This is just really disgusting and since when Stimpy was a female?

What a depressing way to end an absolutely depressing series...

Stimpy Is A Boy not A Girl

2 Back on Shaq (Johnny Bravo)

Would Johnny find the right girl? Accept he's single for a while and focus on more important aspects of life? Give us one last action-packed, pepper-sprayed, tazered night on the town? No, that would make SENSE! Instead, we got the typical Hannah-Barbera sellout episode. That was totally worth it.

Johnny Bravo meets Shaquille O Neal now whos the idiot that though this was a good way to end the series, as I've said before the series sould have ended with Johnny Bravo getting sent back in time where he meets the King himself Elvis Presley who then teaches him how to get the ladies and ends with both Johnny and Elvis performing either "Burning Love" or "Viva Las Vegas", Johnny then returns to his own timeline and becomes an Elvis impersonator and finally wins over the ladies that would have made a better finale than this.

Johnny going back in time and meeting Elvis Presley and learning how to get the ladies would make a much better finale than this.

3 Goku's Next Journey (DragonBall Z)

This ending made no sense or does it really resolve anything in the final few episodes a tournament is held which is the only reason to get Goku to meet with everyone again and he just ditches everyone to go off to train with a kid who looks like the reincarnation of Buu after all these episode its hero Goku abandons everyone including his own family for no real reason.

Even the English dub voice actors are fully aware of how stupid this episode is.

The stupidest ending to one of the greatest anime.

Stupid ending

4 The Superjail Six (Superjail!)

Worst finale to an [adult swim] show EVER! It's too violent, it's too offensive, it's just insulting!

5 Sonically Ever After (Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog)

This was simply a load of crap.
This episode alone is what makes Sonic X better than SatAM. Sure there was Chris, but there was never a waste of time episode like this one.

To the writers of this episode just how drunk were you guys when you wrote this episode.

"It's no fairy tail to say... SEE YA SOON for MORE adventures of SONIC the Hedgehog"

Patrick:Liar Liar Pants On Fired

6 Things Change (Teen Titans)

I agree and disagree. This episode didn't have the WORST ending. It was just unsettling and left us with a lot of questions. I DO wish we had a season six. I miss OG TT. Now we have crap called TTG. But Trouble in Tokyo wasn't bad at all. Things Change just left us on a cliffhanger.

This also was a weak ending... well, to season 5, that is. Teen Titans did end with Trouble in Tokyo, if I'm not mistaken. I would love to see season 6 on [adult swim]. if that ever happens.

7 The Lair (Mr. Pickles Season 1)

PhantomStrider has every right to hate this season finale and the show overall.

8 Hear Us Rock (Grojband)

Awful ending to an awful series.

9 The Doomsday Project (Sonic the Hedgehog Sat AM)

It ends on a cliffhanger and that's pretty much its biggest crime.

In case you're curious, the creators said the glowing eyes belonged to Naugus.

Why on a cliffhanger?

10 Goodbye to Bloo (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)

This episode was disappointing to end this cartoon especially when Cheese moves to Foster's after his owner Louise was moving to another apartment that doesn't allow imaginary friends.

A finale is meant to answer unanswered question this did not

This ending was boring

The Contenders
11 The Elimination Special, Part II the Elimination (Drawn Together)

This episode was nothing more than a waste of the audience time, how do you end they end the series by making a clip show and having a surprise elimination even though it was clear that the show was ending in the end after so many clip shows and pointless singing the character who gets evicted from the house is none of the actual characters but some character who we was never in the show Munchkin Mouse then they show a brief clip show with his face pasted into each scene and the episode just ends with all the characters and Brian Dunkleman who in the episode for no real reason being given their pink slips and grab their stuff as they walk away ending this train wreck, a whole 22 minutes of your time wasted and an awful ending to an awful show.

12 The New Black (The Boondocks)
13 Everyone's a Critic (Darkstalkers)

Another bad ending to a terrible cartoon based of a video game, how does it end it ends with the good guys and the bad guys forced to work together and pretend that Pyron has taken over Earth when his brother comes to visit of course everything goes wrong and Pyron's brother decides to take over and the group must work together again to stop him and that's pretty much how it ends.

14 A Regular Epic Final Battle (Regular Show)

I don't know what's sadder, Pops permanently dying in a heroic sacrifice, or the fact that Mordecai dosen't marry either Margret OR CJ, but some random character we NEVER got to know.

Obvious nostalgia bias is obvious nostalgia bias.

15 Fancy Schmancy (The Fairly Odd Parents)
16 The Gift of Gum (SpongeBob SquarePants)
17 Come Along with Me (Adventure Time)

Mis-adventure time deserved to be cancelled because of mi-stakes

A crappy ending to an already crappy show

Not one of the worst cartoon ending,it's just kind of meh.


18 The Ending of the End/The Last Problem (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

This certainly isn't a bad finale, but it isn't a good finale either. The action and plotting is on point, but the lesson feels like something that's been said before (many fans have criticized the finale's lesson as all too familiar to that of the premiere's lesson). Overall it felt like the writers were playing it safe, which is understandable considering that they were wrapping up nine seasons of story. But, for what it was, it was pretty well done.

Don’t even get me started…

19 Relief (Deadman Wonderland)

The series ends with so many things unresolved.

20 The Final Wreck-ening (Total Drama All-Stars)

Really boring final 2 and the reset button was stupid. Horrible finale to a horrible season.

21 Phantom Planet (Danny Phantom)

Didn't think it was bad when I first watched it, especially back when the Danny Phantom hate bandwagon was still big. Looking back at it now, it's not terrible, but it did feel rushed and cheesy for the most part. Sure, at least Butch Hartman was able to give the show an official closure instead of just letting it be cancelled, but I think it could have solved all of the show's plot threads much more better. And this is why #BringBackDannyPhantom exists.

I'll admit, Danny Phantom did have a stupid ending, I just found worse endings than this.

Not terrible, just rushed

22 The Mountains of Beyond (The World of David the Gnome)

The only reason its on the list is for how depressing it is with the main characters prepare for their deaths yeah real great way to end a kids series by having the characters die.

I wouldn't really call this one bad, just depressing. If this list were about sad endings, you should have put the finale of dinosaurs on the list

23 Lumpus' Last Stand (Camp Lazlo)

Agree. This episode was inappropriate for kids and Lumpus is a pedo for asking the scouts to paint themselves without anything on.

24 Future Schlock (Rocko's Modern Life)
25 Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S (Codename: Kids Next Door)

Man, this finale was so disappointing. I wanted Numbuh 1 to stay on earth, but I guess not
