Top Ten Worst Cartoon Episodes


The Top Ten

1 Ren Seeks Help (Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon)

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.

Ren from the original show was NEVER. EVER. THIS. ED. UP. He had his moments where he could be creepy, mean or terrifying, but he had a legit reason to, and it was done perfectly, it was funny and clever.

But thi s.. t hing is not ren. Please if you ever think of seeing this episode DO NOT watch it, watch the original ren and stimpy show instead. Avoid this like the plague.

This piece of garbage needs to be killed with fire!

This has to be AT LEAST 30% - Pokemonfan10

2 One Coarse Meal (SpongeBob SquarePants)

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. - Heyo_Simba

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.

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.

Disgusting - 445956

3 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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

This episode infuriated me.
Seriously, I knew that SpongeBob had those moments where he acts like a jackass, but this episode takes the cake.
Normally, I forgive SpongeBob when he messes up.
But not in this episode
SpongeBob SquarePants is such a jerk in this episode!
Seriously, that moment where SpongeBob yells "YOU PUT FLUFFY DOWN RIGHT NOW! " made me RAGE.
Seriously, Gary is INSIDE Puffy Fluffy's MOUTH.
How can SpongeBob not notice that?
Why does it look like Gary is mistreating Fluffy to him?
Why won't SpongeBob realize that Gary did nothing wrong?
When will SpongeBob realize HOW MUCH OF A MORON HE WAS?!
And when Gary saves SpongeBobs life, SpongeBob is still mad at Gary, and ends up bringing Gary to the krusty Krab.
This episode is just SpongeBob's absolute WORST.
I really wish this episode never existed. - Kiyomi

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

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.

Came out on my birthday in 2005

How is One Course Meal higuer than this? - SBells27

Because an episode where they mock suicide is far worse than an episode that says average kids do not deserve to be a part of the world. - DCfnaf

5 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

6 Boys of Bummer (The Simpsons)

This episode makes me wish that chief Wiggum would die

Bart tries to kill himself? what the heck!

7 Life of Brian (Family Guy)
8 1 Night in Gottlieb (Allen Gregory)

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

9 Butt Transplant (Sanjay and Craig)

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.

10 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

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Herpe the Love Sore (Family Guy)
13 Fresh Heir (Family Guy)

I've never watched this epsiode. But I've heard how disturbing and seen reviews and cilps of this epsiode.

14 SpongeBob You're Fired (SpongeBob SquarePants)

I actually don't mind this episode

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

15 Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q (Family Guy)
16 Tom and Jerry Clarify on their Friendship (Malayalam Shooting Location)
17 No Such Luck (The Loud House)

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

18 Angelica's Worst Nightmare (Rugrats)
19 Little Yellow Book (SpongeBob SquarePants)

Spongebob is tortured to death by Squidward. I lost a lot of respect for Squidward after watching this. - Heyo_Simba

20 Love, AD Style (American Dad)
21 Road Trippin' (The Nutshack)
22 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!

23 Goodbye Normal Jeans (King Of The Hill)
24 Their Place (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans)
25 If It Smells Like An Ed (Ed, Edd n Eddy)
26 Poop Doggy Dogg (Mega Babies)

Honestly! It's Mega Babies! That show is so revolting, it's unbearable! And literally, the title says it all. - redhawk766

Honestly, that's LITERALLY the title of the episode. - xandermartin98

Worst title for any episode T.V. has ever given us. The episode is even worse!

Like the Invader Zim character?

27 Everyone Knows It's Bendy (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)

I would adopt him but then kill him - TheKirbyCreeper999

Bendy is a complete and total jerkface. I'm relieved that he was in only one episode! - Heyo_Simba

28 Hot Sauce Boss (Sanjay and Craig)
29 Boast Busters (My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic)
30 The Return of Slade (Teen Titans Go!)

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.


Man, this show creeped me out! Unlike the other people, I actually never minded TT Go! until I saw this episode. - redhawk766

In the intro I was like, oh my god they are going to show us Deathstroke again this will be epic, and later their comes to say that everything was an special of three episodes and a movie

31 The Principal and the Pauper (The Simpsons)

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

32 Poof's Big Moment (Fairly Odd Parents)
33 Big Picture Show (Ed, Edd, N Eddy)

This aren't a episode, are a movie, and is the BADASS

34 Face Freeze! (SpongeBob SquarePants)

This is one of the creepiest spongebob episodes. - Heyo_Simba

35 American Fung (American Dad)
36 Sundae Muddy Sundae (Total Drama)

The biggest sin of character derailment right here. - Tayxd123

I do like Total Drama, but, man... - redhawk766

This episode was just...

This is the reason why TDAS is hated.

37 The Big Fairy Share Scare (The Fairly OddParents)

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

38 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

39 Fifteen (Arthur)
40 Lisa Goes Gaga (The Simpsons)
41 Murp Romp (Mixels)
42 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. - MazdaRX7FC


43 Bridle Gossip (MLP)

No I Going To Put This In The Top 10 - TheCartoonGuy

This Episode Is Worse Than Ren Seeks Help,One Course Meal And And A Pal For Gary Combined! - TheCartoonGuy

I Hate This Episode Its Worse Than Ren Seeks Help because Of Applebloom... Dont Understand Let Me Put It This Way.
Ren: Hurts Animals = Gets Killed
Jeffy: Swears = Gets Spanked
Butt Cluck * Chicken Little's Dad * Wishes His Son Was Never Born = Gets Hated On The Internet
Mr Krabs: Dose Attempted Murder = Again Gets Hated On The Internet
Applebloom: Leaves Her Sister To Die In The Most Unsafe Place In The World While Her Sister Was Tiny = Nothing...
I Have No Words - TheCartoonGuy

44 Ball of Revenge (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

This episode is not bad, just with the fan service done wrong

45 Dexter vs. Santa's Claws (Dexter's Lab)
46 Trilogy (Ctrl+alt+del)
47 From Bad to Nurse (Breadwinners)
48 Oh, Brother! (The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3)

Ugh! This mess is terrible!

Luigi is a huge jerk in this episode, the entire thing is rushed, Luigi doesn't learn a lesson, Mario just decides to take Luigi's jerky actions, Kooky is told to kill his father for no reason... Ugh... This one is terrible!

My favorite Mario character went from Luigi to Yoshi. Luigi was my favorite till I saw THIS. - BlueSheepYT


Stupid.I hate everyone except Kooky in this episode cause he is a Koopaling.

49 Dark Harvest (Invader Zim)

I actually didn't mind this episode. - Heyo_Simba

It isn't bad! - Goatworlds
