Top 10 Worst Cartoon Episodes of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Ren Seeks Help (Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon)

This episode has to be the worst, most vile, atrocious and abysmal cartoon episode I've ever seen. This episode is just ROTTEN to the core. It starts with Stimpy crying for 3 minutes, then we hear the backstory of Ren. We see the complications of birth from Ren's perspective, and watching him slapped so hard that he acquired a desire to hurt and torture anything he gets. Then, we watch Ren torture animals in horrendous and atrocious ways such as plucking the legs of a millipede and burning an ant alive after we see the ant screams and begs for mercy. Eventually, Ren meets a frog, and decides to keep it as a pet. Then he torture the poor creature in vile and atrocious ways such as electrocuting it with a car's battery and burning it, then, Ren discover he doesn't want to kill the frog, because that would end it's suffering. Later Ren is forced to kill the frog by his parents but when they get distracted, he throws it into the garbage bin. Then, Dr. Horse calls Ren "legitimately a ...more

If I could describe this episode with one syllable, it would be "UGH! ". This might be the objectively worst episode of the show so far. It's a Ren torture porn, with all of his attempts to help either failing miserably or completely rejected by his friend. The reason his friend is trying to kill him in the first place is completely ridiculous, and the "committing suicide" thing only makes it worse. The "commit suicide" is essentially a crutch the episode relies on to try and get across its bullcrap moral. The episode teaches that you shouldn't try to help others, because you'll only make things worse. It's a 75% cringeworthy and 25% insulting.

Ren seeks help is ROTTEN TO THE CORE. It's the worst piece of animation I have ever had the misfortune to watch. In this episode, we look into the story of a psychopath who relishes in the suffering of others since the day he was born. We see Ren tortures a frog in various very painful ways, and eventually relizes he doesn't want to kill the frog because that would end it's suffering. What's even worse about this episode, is when Ren talks about his despicble actions, he's smiling like it's something to be proud of or a happy memory. Eventually, after Dr. Horse calls Ren legitimately a psychopath, Ren breaks into an uncontrolled animalistic state and kills Dr. Horse. After that Ren is taken to an isolated prison and the frog commites suicide by firing Dr. Horse's gun.

Dear god... Dear God...! This is absolutely atrocious. Hell, atrocious would be too nice of a word. Who wants to see Ren as a fetus, have Bambi eat his PLACENTA, Ren sadistically torture animals as a kid, and have his parents make out while Ren tries to kill a beaten up frog? Old Ren would be terrified of this spawn of Satan. This is, without a doubt, the worst cartoon episode in history.

2 One Coarse Meal (SpongeBob SquarePants)

The worst part: the episode is stating that the man who stalked and drove his enemy to suicide (which he later laughs about) is the good guy. That would be like a terrorist destroys the U.S. Capitol with a nuclear bomb and later wins the Nobel prize for physics.

I used to like this episode when I was younger, but I've recently lost all of my respect for it. Mr. Krabs is a complete jerk in this episode. Plankton is my favorite character, and he is driven mad in this episode. I hate Mr. Krabs now.

This episode is the worst. I mean why would anyone want to try and get run over. That's horrible! This episode to me, is filled with mean spirit in it.

I don't like this episode because Plankton is pretty much tortured throughout this whole episode.

3 1 Night in Gottlieb (Allen Gregory)
4 A Pal for Gary (SpongeBob SquarePants)

Is there already a list of the most unwatchable SpongeBob episodes? If not, can I make it so I could put this at number 1? The climax and the resolution of this episode was just excruciatingly irritating to watch given how oblivious and moronic SpongeBob is in this episode.

This episode is HORRIBLE! SpongeBob is such a ignorant, dumb and stupid! This episode is painful to watch!

I lost respect for gary after watching this crap pile of an episode.

At least one coarse meal end in a good way, the last 4 minutes of this episode is like if your balls get kicked 6 times

5 It's a Wishful Life (Fairly Odd Parents)

I can't believe that this episode is in a kids show. Telling a ten year old that everyone and everything is better off without him? That's terrible! I despise this episode!
Although I actually disagree with a previous person saying it's worse than Screams of Silence. I personally hate that episode more. Jeff abuses Brenda in a room full of people and the the only course of action is murder? And then we are left to assume Brenda automatically gets a happily ever after. That's not how the real world works.
Yeah, this episode sucks, but not as much as that one, in my opinion.

This episode is one of the most mean-spirited, evil, and sadistic episodes I have ever seen in any cartoon. Timmy wishes that he never existed in this episode, because he doesn't get compensation for ANYTHING good that he does in this episode. Then you've got Jorgen, who shows Timmy that the world is INFINITELY better now that he doesn't exist. He shows a 10-year old that his parents are better off without him, Vicky isn't even a babysitter, and Francis isn't a bully. Think about that: What this episode is saying is that it's Timmy's fault for Francis being a bully. That's not just wrong: It's sadistic that anybody would even think something like that. It's
horrifying. This is the worse case of victim-blaming anyone will ever see, and I mean worse than Screams of Silence, because at least they noticed it wasn't Brenda's fault and killed Jeff. This is telling a child that the world is better off without him, and that he's supposedly the cause of so much pain in the world. It's not ...more

Oh my god, even as a kid I disliked this episode.

6 Boys of Bummer (The Simpsons)

Is this the episode where the whole town hates Bart for not catching a ball?

Want to see One Coarse Meal done three years ago? Here you go.

So one coarse meal but aimed at an older demographic?

Its really bad

7 Waffles (Teen Titans Go!)

They simply say waffles the entire episode.

Aren't all the episodes equally bad?

An awful episode from an awful show!

I knew that going to come.

8 Ejaculation (Big Mouth)
9 The Big Fairy Share Scare (The Fairly OddParents)

Look poof was tolerable, (yeah that's right! ) sparky? ok... But Chloe, Chloe! This character just makes me mad. Heck she's so bad I actually feel ashamed I share a name with this character. And you know what? the writers could have actually try to make this a good episode by giving her depth and a reason why shy acts all perfect. But nope! Lets make timmy a loud spoiled obnoxious whiny brat, have cosmo and wanda act like idiots by making duck lips on their phone. Change the theme song millions, I repeat millions of people grew up on! and Add a mary sue character with the most stupid reasoning for having faires. Why couldn't they use characters like chester remy, or even tootie. Those characters have a more miserable life than chloe ever will be! And don't get me started how they completely forgot the rules that made the show make sense.

The main problem with this episode is how boring it is to sit through. Chloe isn't that interesting a character to begin with. The episode has few jokes, and even fewer that actually made me crack a smile. The "new neighbor's introduction" joke gets old after about three minutes. There's also a few annoying voices.

While it may not be as bad or disgusting as some of the other choices, it destroyed million's of fans' hearts. And it changed the theme song. RIP - Fairly Odd Parents.

10 On a Clear Day, I Can't See My Sister (The Simpsons)

Should be higher

The Newcomers

? Stanley’s Cup (South Park)
? Family Business (Robot & Monster)
The Contenders
11 Brawl In The Family (The Loud House)

I have no problem with The Loud House, but this episode was way too mean-spirited (Lincoln's sisters are mad at him for almost no reason at all) and I cringed during the entire episode. It nearly ruined The Loud House for me.

This episode is funny. It has a scene about a couch bagel which is funny that it's covered in stuff from the couch.

My god! This episode was just mean!

12 Dead Dog Walking (Family Guy)
13 Seahorse Seashell Party (Family Guy)

The "moral" of this episode is that you should stay in an abusive relationship for the abuser's benefit.

This episode makes me sick.

14 No Such Luck (The Loud House)

This episode is so cruel. In my opinion, its tied with it's a wishful life.

This episode actually makes Brawl in the Family look good.

Wow, a lot of people really seem to hate this episode.

Its not the worst thing ever but it is still pretty bad in my opinion

15 Love Loaf (Breadwinners)

The worst episode of an already horrible show.

16 Stuck in the Wringer (SpongeBob SquarePants)

It's easy to handle SpongeBob's annoyance, so I even watch the 2019 episodes with no problem! However, this episode is the wringer version of the snail disease episode, that episode sucked so hard, even Patrick hated SpongeBob. That is the worst episode I've ever seen aside Banned in Bikini Bottom (Bad unites with justice but not protagonists and it disrespects the bad guy and Justice vs. Protagonists) and Call the Cops (I can handle their annoyance and it fakes justice, ending up innocent people in jail (EVEN SPONGEBOB! (Even though he's a jerk)))!

Spongebob is the biggest jerk in this flipping episode! After watching this, I wanted to punch Spongebob in the face. Several times. Hard.

But it was Patrick's fault. Spongebob had every right to get angry! The townspeople are who you should get mad it.

17 Madeline at the Ballet (Madeline)

Honestly the worst episode of the series. Not even Pepito and his frog gag could redeem it.

18 Brett Venom M.D. (Sanjay and Craig)

Dreadful, what possessed anyone to make an episode that involved a butt transplant of all things...a brain transplant for whom ever came up for this total waste of space, would be more appropriate.

Sanjay and Craig just keeps on getting worse and worse. I mean, "butt transplant"? Eeek...

I like the show, but this was NOT a good way to start it.

19 Onward and Upward (Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon)

This episode... UGH like all of Adult Party Cartoon it's disgusting and disturbing. So what is our plot? If you can even call it that. Well Ren is tired of living in an hobo's mouth and after torturing Stimpy for a bit he decides to leave with stimpy. They go to a spittoon where stimpy pooled some cash into and for the rest of the episode the two stay in this golden thing and proceed to eat Vomit, nasal, and WHAT? You heard me right VOMIT AND NASAL! This happens the entire episode too. And at the end of the episode Ren And Stimpy end up back in the hobo. Making the ENTIRE episode completely pointless... it's not the worst adult party cartoon episode but it's up there people. Avoid this one like the plague

20 The Lair (Mr. Pickles)
21 Arnold Betrays Iggy (Hey Arnold!)

When I saw this episode as a kid, it left me depressed for a week. It boggles my mind how Nickelodeon thought putting this on television was a good idea.

Worst ending in any episode. At least Stanley's Cup (south park) was enjoyable. It was the best part of the episode.

The ending left me completely speechless.

22 Big Brother Caillou (Caillou)
23 Herpe the Love Sore (Family Guy)
24 Shell Shock (Dive Olly Dive!)
25 Fart Baby (Sanjay and Craig)

Sanjay and Craig appears to be a cross between regular show & bobs burgers, but failing to have the charm of either...too childish for adult swim & too adult for a children's programme, this bizarre mishmash has a whole slew of stupid episodes, this one has to be the worst, Sanjay thinks he's pregnant with a fart?...what dummy thought that this would be a fantastic idea for a kids cartoon...mind boggling!
