Top Ten Worst Cartoon Episodes


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 - Gilad_Hyperstar

This episode is just overdramatic and gross! - Peppapigsucks

The title screen scares me

PhantomStrider said it better than I ever could.

2 One Coarse Meal (SpongeBob SquarePants)

I hate this episode so much!

How is this not number 1?

Screw this episode! More like “One CRAPPY Meal” if you ask me that.

One of the despised episodes from SpongeBob SquarePants of all time!

3 A Pal for Gary (SpongeBob SquarePants)

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

More worse than One meal!

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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Good idea, terrible excecution. - Not_A_Weeaboo

4 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.

Already it’s not as bad as one coarse meal

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.

5 Stimpy's Pregnant (Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon")

This should be so much higher! How is it so low? - Spongehouse

The entire top ten could be Adult Party Cartoon episodes.

Always read what it is: The Ren & Stimpy show or The Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon. - redhawk766

6 Waffles (Teen Titans Go!)

I knew that going to come.

An awful episode from an awful show! - Spongehouse

Aren’t all the episodes equally bad?

They simply say waffles the entire episode.

7 Brawl In The Family (The Loud House)

This episode is just... wrong. The worst TLH episode. Don't ask.

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! - BlueMan9

The worst Loud House episode - Spongehouse

sounds bad - Spongehouse

Brian knowingly gives stewie and chris herpes. Absolutely vile.

The Contenders

11 The Big Fairy Share Scare (The Fairly OddParents)

Its awful cause it introduced Chloe - Spongehouse

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.

Look poof was tolerable, (yeah that's right! ) sparky? ok... But Chloe, Chloe! This charecther just makes me mad. Heck she's so bad I actually feel ashamed I share a name with this charecther. 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 milions of people grew up on! and Add a mary sue charecther with the most stupid reasoning for having faires. Why couldn't they use charecthers like chester remy, or even tootie. Those charecthers have a more miserable life than chloe ever will be! And don't get me started how they completly forgot the rules that made the show make sense

revolting - Spongehouse

A seven year old with a sex tape with the 80 YEAR OLD PRINCIPAL? - DCfnaf

15 Love Loaf (Breadwinners)

BreadWinners just sucks so ya kno

Because SwaySway wanting to rape Jenny at a female summer camp is funny, am I right? - Ededdneddyfanredux

16 Brian's a Bad Father (Family Guy)

This episode has the worst joke in cartoon history.

This should be higher.

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

Why?!? - Spongehouse

This episode is going way too far on the butt jokes

Why the heck would someone need a butt transplant? /? /// - Heyo_Simba

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.

18 Seahorse Seashell Party (Family Guy)

What's the lesson Here? Stay in an abusive relationship just for the sake of the abusers...SCREW THIS EPISODE. IT SHOULD BE MUCH HIGHER! - DCfnaf

This should b tied with life of brian

19 Stuck in the Wringer (SpongeBob SquarePants) 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)))!

Patrick should swallow that glue - Spongehouse

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

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

20 Life of Brian (Family Guy)

Brian dies, then in the next episode they bring Him BACK! What was the point of even killing off Brian in the first place? - GehennaTheSecond

I would murder every single person who worked on that episode it was that bad

Awful episode that was only made to get media attention. - KalloFox34

Brian dies in this episode! Why isn't this number 2? - Gabo147

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.

22 Fart Baby (Sanjay and Craig)

I never watched it but it sound horrible - Spongehouse

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!

23 Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q (Family Guy)
24 No Such Luck (The Loud House)

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

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

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

25 Tom and Jerry Clarify on their Friendship (Malayalam Shooting Location)

Is this cartoon show real? - Gabo147

26 Duck Karma (The Nutshack)
27 SpongeBob You're Fired (SpongeBob SquarePants)

I actually don't mind this episode

Mr. Krabs just fires him for a NICKEL! What a cheapskate.

Mr. Krabs fires him, just because he saved a Nickel! WHAT THE HELL? MR. KRABS ONLY WANTS MONEY! MORE MONEY THAN ROBLOX! - Gabo147

28 American Fung (American Dad)
29 Little Yellow Book (SpongeBob SquarePants)

Oh, and Squidward doesn't learn his lesson and feels that he can tolerate his abuse as long as SpongeBob's miserable. - KalloFox34

I just hate the residents of bikini bottom. Everybody lets go fishing! - Spongehouse

Sure squidward is a jerk but the people are worse! They enjoy the diary until spongebob leaves crying and after that they treat squidward like he caused 9/11. Watch fools in April instead!

Even if Squidward was such a jerk in this episode, the people of Bikini Bottom are the ones you should hate here. They shouldn't have tortured him for reading SpongeBob's diary because before they see SpongeBob crying, they were also reading his diary with Squidward and laughing at it
Same goes for Stuck In The Wringer. When Patrick didn't do anything to help SpongeBob and instead makes everything worse, SpongeBob yelled at him. But then the people of Bikini Bottom suddenly became angry at SpongeBob even though he had the rights to be mad and Patrick deserved to feel bad.
Honestly, the people of Bikini Bottom are such stupid hypocrites.

This is one of the creepiest spongebob episodes. - Heyo_Simba

43 Fifteen (Arthur)

The absolute worst episode of Arthur in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseX

44 The Principal and the Pauper (The Simpsons)

This episode was really bad, there were a few good qualities, but this episode was just so bad it was just unlikable to watch. I am glad it was non-canon because the show deserves far better. - BlueMan9

This should be top10! It's one of the most rubbish and pointless episodes of any T.V. show ever!

45 Poof's Big Moment (Fairly Odd Parents)
46 The Return of Slade (Teen Titans Go!)

An entire episode of the writers thumbing their noses at everybody with the common sense to condemn their precious show. Seriously, they're the ones who need to grow up! - Synchronocity

What do you guys expect it's TTG were talking about! - Spongehouse

This episode is about clowns! Not Slade! - Gabo147

It basically was an insult to the haters of the show executed terribly with strawman arguments. Even fans of the show admit this was a crappy episode.

The diferints
1. Kraw Volcado And Jaw Died. Chase Died.

49 You're In Trouble (Sanjay and Craig)
50 Horn Sweet Horn (The Powerpuff Girls)

"If you are trans, you should obey the non-trans people because they are superior to you in every way and what they want is more important. If you go for a sex change operation, you are a monster and you will destroy the world. You deserve this and it is all your fault you are like this" - This episode's moral.

This is definitely worse than One Coarse Meal, and it's probably worse than Seahorse Seashell Party. Screw this Powerpuff Girls reboot and damn it to hell. - DCfnaf
