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

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.

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.

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.

Writers, It Doesn't Matter Who You're Doing this To, Torturing a Character IS NOT FUNNY!
For My Sake Stop Making These Horrible Excuses For Episodes, They Are Not Funny, Which is The
Main Reason I Watch Cartoons, To Laugh and Have a Good Time, How am Supposed To Laugh When a Character That Did Literally Nothing Wrong Is Commiting Suicide?!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

So Timmy’s main purpose in life is to ruin everyone’s lives and be hated for it? WHAT THE HECK MAN!?! WHAT KIND OF SICK AND TWISTED SHOW IS THIS!?!?! Everyone from Timmy’s parents and friends to Jorgen acted completely stupid and idiotic in this episode and made Timmy feel worse than he already is! THEY EVEN SHOWED HOW THE WORLD WOULD BE PERFECT IF TIMMY WAS NEVER BORN! WHICH IS THE CRUELEST AND MOST DESPICABLE THING I’VE EVER SEEN! What were those stupid writers thinking when making this episode!?!

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

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

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

The entire top ten could be Adult Party Cartoon episodes.

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

6 Herpe the Love Sore (Family Guy)

sounds bad - Spongehouse

Brian knowingly gives stewie and chris herpes. Absolutely vile.

7 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.

This episode makes me wish that chief Wiggum would die

So one coarse meal but aimed at an older demographic?

8 Love, AD Style (American Dad)
9 Dead Dog Walking (Family Guy)
10 Brian's a Bad Father (Family Guy)

This episode has the worst joke in cartoon history.

This should be higher.

The Contenders
11 Waffles (Teen Titans Go!)

They simply say waffles the entire episode.

An awful episode from an awful show!

I knew that going to come.

Aren’t all the episodes equally bad?

12 The Big Fairy Share Scare (The Fairly OddParents)

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

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.

Its awful cause it introduced Chloe

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.

13 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!

14 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.

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

My god! This episode was just mean!

15 No Such Luck (The Loud House)

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

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

This episode actually makes Brawl in the Family look good.

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

16 Study Muffin (The Loud House)
17 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.

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!

This should b tied with life of brian

18 Love Loaf (Breadwinners)

The worst episode of an already horrible show.

BreadWinners just sucks so ya kno

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

19 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.

This episode is going way too far on the butt jokes

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

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

20 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.

Another Patrick is a jerk Episode why

21 1 Night in Gottlieb (Allen Gregory)

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

revolting - Spongehouse

22 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.

23 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!

I never watched it but it sound horrible - Spongehouse

24 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

25 Lisa Goes Gaga (The Simpsons)

Stupid episode - Spongehouse

Say, WHAT?!?!
