Worst Cartoon Remakes


The Top Ten

1 Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" Ren & Stimpy

Am I the only person that I think this show should rather be put in number #1? It's just full of disgusting jokes and people do not know if this has to work. Not only it sucks, but it might also ruin your childhood. I don't get it why it has to happen. I HATE this remake! This remake sucks because of two episodes, "Ren Seeks Help" and "Stimpy's Pregnaut." These two episodes are just nauseating, painful, and too disturbing to watch. The stories are AWFUL, too. I'm glad it only lasted in 7 episodes. It has to stop. This is why I think Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon should be in #1. SCREW THIS SHOW!

I liked the old Ren & Stimpy cartoon better. I rented a Ren & Stimpy video game for my Super Nintendo a few years ago and played it. I haven't gotten very far in Ren & Stimpy for Super Nintendo. - playstationfan66

Twisted Cartoon Porn (As a dude, I like porn, but Ren and Stimpy exaggerate it making it look terrifying.)

It's the same as the original version just a creepy cartoon.

2 Teen Titans Go

I HATE TEEN TITANS GO! All it ever does is make the original show look like a failure! The characters are complete idiots and don't know what the hell they're doing. They can't even fight crime like real superheroes do! What happened to the good-formula characters? I'm going to explain the differences between The Original Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go...

Robin: In the original show, Robin was this badass martial-arts leader. He actually knew what to do in every situation. He had excellent formula and had the right weapons for any crimes being committed. In Teen Titans Go, Robin is the complete opposite! He's an arrogant jerk who stalks Starfire and thinks he's good aat anything when he really isn't

Starfire: In the original, Starfire was a curious alien princess who was trying to fit-in with other people, including her teammates and it's good that she doesn't want to cause harm. In Teen Titans Go, Starfire was a psychopath and always used the word "the" in every single ...more - Stazemar000

This show literally defaces the original Teen Titans. I told a young girl that I really liked Teen Titans, and she said she hated them. When I asked why, I found out that her opinion was solely based on Teen Titans Go. It makes me want to SCREAM how much horrible can be packed into one show. The original Teen Titans had such a good formula, I am thoroughly surprised that it could be messed up THIS BADLY. In fact, I think that the writers of Teen Titans Go actively hate the original Teen Titans. Think about it! How else could a show as good as Teen Titans have such a wretched remake?

Sorry bout that, the New Teen Titans go doesn't even take anything seriously. They don't even battle serious bad guys like monsters or enemies, and they had Cyborg fall in love with Jinx... THAT IS SO STUPID!

I think the PPG reboot was worse. And ren and stimpy reboot was way worse than PPG reboot - LeetHaterz

3 The Powerpuff Girls (2016) The Powerpuff Girls (2016) The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. ...read more.

Just like Teen Titans, Cartoon Network are going to make another lame Reboot instead of broadcasting the original Powerpuff Girls.

Why couldn't they just air the original? It's much better than this Satan spawn.

, I hate this show so much, don't even get me started.. (And I loved the original) First of all, they laid off the original voice actors (Tara Strong was so sad about it), and they try to appeal to modern audiences by throwing in dumb slang and outdated memes. They actually had internet trolls in one episode. Which were PINK and had big cutesy-ish (not) eyes. And that crossover episode with TTG was absolute CRAP.

Twerking. Seriously? They could've just kept even at least the original voice actors of the show. Ms Belum or however her name is spelled was took out of the show... Because they thought she was offensive?! Great now the mayor has to call the girls just to open a damn PICKLE JAR. I don't even like those lantern things. A fourth powerpuff girl? You just couldn't stop there and now another Fouth powerpuff girl special on May 20th... This will difinitely won't even probably get a million views just like the other one! And did they seriously just made Blossom fall inlove with a dude who decided to go in the shows to fulfill his dreams? The girls aren't even heroes anymore!

4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)

I absolutely hate what they did to Mikey in this show, in the old cartoons he was just a ninja that liked to have fun but he was still intelligent, in this version he's like the new dumber version of Patrick trapped inside Mikey's body

Why must people be Stupid enough to make Remakes.
There is TMNT 1987 which has 193 episodes.
TMNT 2003 (I shall give this one a pass because this one is actually really good.) has 157 awesome episodes (Season 5 is the BEST.)
And then Nickelodeon decides to remake an Awesome classic that should have Never be remade.
Why can't Nickelodeon just broadcast the previous TMNT Titles?

Hey, have you ever even watched it? Just because it comes from Nickelodeon doesn't mean it's bad. - TheReviewer20

Me to. I cannot wait till Season 4. It looks AWESOME. Haters gonna Hate.

Worst show ever.

5 Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

What's New and Mystery Incorporated were by far the best, but this couldn't suck more. Seriously, I don't think they could've made it uglier.

Don't get me started.

This show looks like it was made by Seth Macfarlane because it looks so much like Family Guy.

I'm this show ended in 2018

6 The Magic School Bus: Rides Again

The worst remake I have ever seen! Turned it off after two minuets! It looks and sounds horrible!

i agree

I wanted to cry and scream "STOP THE BUS" and run me over. The dumbest thing though is they replace Ms Frizzle with someone who looks just like Ms Frizzle. Might as well KEEP MS FRIZZLE GENIUSES!

7 The Batman

This show is awesome. - TheReviewer20

The joker from this show looks creepy.

I'm lovin' it

8 Extreme Ghostbusters

What can I say, it just blew goats. I am a huge Ghostbusters fan, but this show was just plain stupid. The characters that made up the new team were terrible and almost every episode was just a re-hash from the Real Ghostbusters, or just an "origional" idea that sucked a$$ and was very open about where it was ripped off from. I wish they had of done a series reboot on the Real Ghostbusters, or just done a series based on them getting back together for a few seasons to finish cleaning up New York. But instead, we got this crap, and hey, for the people that liked this cartoon, it may be a window into the future of Ghostbusters 3

I saw a preview of Extreme Ghostbusters on my Madeline VHS (the 1998 live action film) alongside Jumanji and Men in Black: the Series. - playstationfan66

This is NOT A REMAKE! IT IS A SEQUEL! - ShaunFan04

9 Yo Yogi!

Yo Yogi is a TERRIBLE remake, Yogi Bear had such a simple concept, but these stupid writers screwed up THAT BAD. - BlueBobYT

What does that mean?

10 Batman: The Brave and The Bold

Come ON! Batman The Animated Series was WAY better.

HOW CAN YOU tell TBatB is bad! HOW?

The Contenders

11 Rugrats Pre-School Daze
12 The Looney Tunes Show

All this show does is Suck out all the fun hi jinx of the original cartoon, make the characters boring stereotypes and just making it into some kind of stupid sitcom

I actually thought the show was still funny

This is the worst cartoon I have ever seen, should be higher

I hate it it's stupid

I have you one challenge, Watch this show for 24 hrs. This ugly remake makes a show for kids on how despite they are to have cartoons. Nick is mostly filled with live action or comedic shows. Disable kids to have real entertainment. So with the help of many people they made this.

Think twice before saying this is a good show. First time I seen it I thought they were human. Turns out they had tails. Dave has a girl friend in the newest movie. What does he end up in this, a flat head. Songs are super random and not using voice acting. You can tell they were using 3DS sound recording to make songs. They go to school, WHY! Dave is know for a really loud yell of ALVIIN. but it was replaced with a gr of Alvin. Forget the show, avoid the channel NICKELONEAN

YAaaas this show is the bomb and I'm not even five although the episodes seems to be in different timelines but overall they're the chipmunks back with real style welcome to iPhone world - PandaRant3R

This show is copying Regular show's francise.

One of my least favorite cartoons of all time HAS to be on this list, should be number one. The CG is SO UGLY! They actually managed to make the LIVE ACTION VERSION LOOK GOOD! I'm assuming that was their goal!
Nickelodeon employee 1: Hey, Nickelodeon employee 2, what's wrong?
Nickelodeon employee 2: Nostalgia Critic made a bad review of our movie.
Nickelodeon employee 1: You mean that "Alvin and the Chipmunks" one?
Nickelodeon employee 2: Yeah.
Nickelodeon employee 1: Hey let's make an animated version that will somehow last 3 seasons! Then people will talk about how much better the movie was!
Nickelodeon employee 2: Yeah and let's make the characters give you nightmares!
I can't even understand what their even saying in the musical numbers! It sounds like it was speed up! And don't even get me started on the chipmunks voices. Theodore, you aren't exactly innocent when you try to make my ears bleed. Nickeloden, congratulations on completely ruining AATC, and your ...more

15 VeggieTales in the House

This took away every religious theme from a beloved childhood show, turning this into a pathetic children's cartoon for no reason.

VeggieTales gained a seasonal rot (even though there wasn't any seasons) when Noah's ark aired. The designs here are just awful, dreamworks, they should be in their older forms, not this crap you call a redesign. Thankfully the returning character's voices are OK, except Juniors... - BlueBobYT

Going with the first comment it's called veggie tales not breakfast tales - PandaRant3R

In one episode, How on earth did Archibald forgot that Larry's identity is Larryboy? Come-on! - Pikasuke

16 Loonatics Unleashed

Their skin doesn't even match and compare with the old Looney Tunes.

These new looney tunes are lame, no funny jokes, and WHY WOULD YOU WANT LOONEY TUNES TO BE FUNNY?! This show has seizure inducing flashes and the show is boring and I switched to teen titans.

17 Speed Racer: The Next Generation
18 Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain

Because THIS is what you wanted to see happen with Pinky and the Brain right? have them stuck with some annoying kid and have most of the episodes revolve around her and have their goal of world domination be reduced to an afterthought

Er no it was just a spin off which didn't last very long. Just wait for the reaction to the new Animaniacs. Maybe they should remake Tiny Toon Adventures too.

19 Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood

It is a cartoon remake of a live action show. Shouldn't be here - 445956

20 What's New Scooby Doo

Personally I think this is the best version of scooby doo

There are 12 remakes

How many remakes do they have to make? Do they want it to be a bad show sooo much that they keep remaking it? I personally think that the first,original is best of all. THE NEWEST VERSION MAKES THE ALL LOOK SO STUPID THAT I CAN NOT EVEN BELIEVE IT.

21 Sonic Underground Sonic Underground

Sonic underground was an amazing. Show too bad it ended of a cliff hanger you will be missed sonic underground

This was actually not bad...

The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog - Lazy show, but at least it has funny moments. (PINGAS)
Sonic SatAM - AMAZING Classic Sonic Cartoon with a catchy theme song.
Sonic Underground - Bad remake of SatAM.
Sonic X - Good but overrated.
Sonic Boom - Went from mediocre to utterly amazing... - BlueBobYT

22 Pound Puppies (2010)

80s is better. Look at the Bronies.

You people stink like rats!

24 Bob The Builder (2015) Bob The Builder (2015) Bob the Builder is a British children's animated television show created by Keith Chapman. In the original series, Bob appears in a stop motion animated programme as a building contractor, specialising in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised ...read more.

PBS Kids: Lets reboot Bob The Builder and ruin some childhoods! - BlueBobYT

My childhood just received a punch in the face! - 445956

Ruined many childhoodfs including mine, just look at how horrible the character looks! What happened to Lofty, Roley and Wendy!? And they removed all the cool new characters from the Project Build It series like Tumbler, Scrambler, Gripper and Grabber, Packer, Dodger (and so many more) and replaced them with generic cars - darthvadern

A reboot is basically taking a property (e.g. a T.V. show) and returning it for modern audiences to enjoy. However, this reboot isn't very good.

To start off, the artstyle had a complete overhaul. The animation from the original source material was fairly simple; something you can draw on paper translated to 3D. But then, Mattel decided to drag it away from its EarthBound-esque artstyle and put it in a realistic environment.
Now, I have no problem with giving a few changes to the animation of a reboot, but when you completely change the artstyle (from cartoon-ish to realistic, or vice versa), the show gets hated by long-time fans of the series.
I get it, the show might be enjoyable to younger audiences, but the thing is, everyone who has seen (or heard of) the original series is going to compare reboots to their originals.

Furthermore, the characters look and feel different compared to the original series. Slightly changing a character's personality isn't a bad ...more - TheYoshiPyro64

Nah, the original was way worse and possibly the worst cartoon of the 80s. - 445956

I am SICK of My Little Pony, this is overrated crap with an unforgiving fanbase. - BlueBobYT

I found it funny to see this way below here. - Neonco31

This is mostly because of the bronies bashing on the previous generations while ignoring the fact that FIM ponies look more like alien insects then ponies.

The show was hated by critics and fans for not using any of the original cast (besides the obvious), ...read more.

First peak I thought it was a rebooted version of tak but when I saw sheen and that tongue thing princess it gave me the creeps - PandaRant3R

And this show caused Sheen to be hated by everyone, even his own friends. Thanks Sheen for the terrible reboot!

Sheen was funny in the original, but not here... - BlueBobYT

Takes everythimng charming and funny from Jimmy Neutron and throws it in a trashcan. Seriously. It has the exakt same animation as jimmy neutron, only that JIMMY NEUTRON WAS MADE IN 2002, AND THAT KIND OF ANIMATION LOOKED FANTASTIC BACK THEN, NOW IT LOOKS UGLY AND CHEAP. Sheen is really annoying, he was funny when he was with Jimmy and Carl, but now he is like a neverending radio with only one song on it. - MUSHROOM

27 Disney's Doug
28 Sonic Boom Sonic Boom

Actually sonic boom show was good, the game was painful, but not the show

The game sucks massively. As of season 2, this show is utterly amazing. - BlueBobYT

Come on guys, this show is decent, the game was the thing that sucked - 445956

The game is much worse...

29 Ben 10 (2016) Ben 10 (2016)

I loved the original Ben 10 but this is just basically an insult to Ben 10 I mean come on look at the new rust bucket and what happened with the plumbers and of course since when was Michael Morningstar in the younger Ben 10 series so yeah this is the worst remake to me

What is this bootleg ben 10 omniverse I'll let slide I didn't like it either but this is just stupid at this point

This is a millions times worse than Ben 10: Omniverse. And that's saying something. What in the world were the creators thinking of making a reboot of a successful show like Ben 10 in the first place!?

Should have gone on to the road trip and Ben 10000 this is the worst season yet by FAR!

30 Dexter's Laboratory (2001-2003)

Still bad, but it is apart of the original series

31 Stitch!
32 Tom and Jerry (Chuck Jones)

I like every Tom and Jerry except for the new 2014 show it has to die off now

No, I only hate the two new ones.

The animation isn't that great and it's way too friendly, what made Tom and jerry so great is all the violence but in this version it's not violent at all, it seems more concerned with having a story then having a bunch of slapstick, but that's not right, Tom and Jerry is supposed to be filled with slapstick, in the original version they take a few seconds to set up the scenario then slapstick ensues, but in this version when the slapstick finally happens IT'S DONE OFFSCREEN! Are you f*cking kidding me? What a horrible remake to such a great cartoon

33 Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!

Turned it off after 6 seconds.

34 Rainbow Brite (2014)
35 Wabbit

This show also has bad animation plus squeaks is an unnecessary character.

There is a lot of characters made for this show that are unnessisary like
squaquals haha making fun of sqeaks who s dumb and inconsiderate just get rid of all of the bad characters like the cab sqirel and get rid of the bad and cheap and lazy animation or artwork or both compared to the original and same thing with the looney tunes show and a lot of modern cartoons have cheap and lazy animation and are bad why wouldn't they use the classic animation like in the original Looney tunes why do cartoons today suck I don't get it!

After watching 1 episode of this. I just felt like bursting out diarrhea from my butt onto the T.V. screen

I HATE this show with a burning passion!

Bugs Bunny is really annoying! Can't he just shut-up for once?

Squeaks the Squirrel is just dreadful! He ripped-off Daffy Duck! Oh! Speaking of Daffy... WHY DID THEY NOT PUT HIM IN THIS SHOW? DAFFY WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS FROM PREVIOUS LOONEY TUNES SHOWS! They just had to put this damn lazy-ass squirrel instead

The other characters are such pricks and the villains... one of them is the president of the United States! The other one is a rabbit version of the Grim Reaper. And there's a slutty fox who is a spy at Washington D.C!

I am NEVER watching this until it gets cancelled

36 ThunderCats Roar

The reboot hasn't even come out yet and I already know what to expect from it unless it defies expectations. The art style is already jarring to anyone familiar with previous ThunderCats installments, but the bigger problem around here is that it looks to be another comedy-oriented kids show in the veins of other reboots like Teen Titans Go!. I don't mean to be some pretentious cartoon snob, but the chances of ThunderCats Roar actually being good are 50% at best. Actually make that 35%. Or even -25%. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

37 The Powerpuff Girls Z

This is a good reboot, people find this bad just because it is different from the original, but it is very interesting and I like how the girls look more human, the storyline is good, and the show is funny. This is a masterpiece compared to to the new 2016 reboot, which is so terrible and unfunny that it makes this look good. At least the girls are more likable in this series, blossom is cute and obsessed with sweets, bubbles is very kind, fashionable, and not rude at all, and buttercup is a cool tomboy who likes sports. In the 2016 version, blossom tries too hard to be neat and perfect, bubbles is bratty and rude, buttercup is the only one that can be likable, but she is a bit annoying because of her voice,

No, it's terrible - Gamecubesarecool193

This version of Blossom looks beautiful, especially when her hair is down. - giddyjoker

This is the only remake I do like to be honest - Stazemar000

38 Scooby-Doo! Mystery, Inc. Scooby-Doo! Mystery, Inc. Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is an American animated mystery comedy-drama series; the series serves as the eleventh incarnation of the Scooby-Doo media franchise created by Hanna-Barbera, as well as the first that was not originally run on Saturday mornings.

This reboot is actually good.

An overrated version of one my of favorite childhood cartoons. The characters have changed too much and also got too much drama. The only good episode of this horrid reboot is Mystery Solvers Stare Club but even then the ending is bad since they made Muddsy the funky phantom a villain. Please just stick with the original Scooby Doo Where Are You, The New Scooby Doo Movies, The Scooby Doo Show, Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo [yes, I actually like Scrappy, deal with it], and The 13 Ghosts Of Scooby Doo!

39 Care Bears: Welcome To Care-A-Lot

Dudes, In my opinion, this Care Bears is the WORST remake of all classic cartoons. If you, like me, remember the 1985 Care Bears DIC (Though I was not born then, I had the ultimate pleasure from my parents watching what they grew up with and what I have today.). Then you will agree that this nasty piece of trash that you call a Reboot is a JOKE.

40 Dora and Friends: Into the City Dora and Friends: Into the City Dora and Friends: Into the City! is an American CGI interactive educational animated television series.

Dumb concept of being teenage is at all NOT entertaining. Me Nor my 3 yr old little brother like this show. No original people/animals. Instead characters that are dumb (PABLO IS BASICALLY DIEGO! ). GOOD HELP ME NO MORE NICK REMAKES!

The original was bad enough, but sure, it makes sense that a 5th grader can't locate a mountain? - BlueBobYT

42 My Little Pony: Newborn Cuties

It's jaw-dropping. My Little Pony made a show that was so lazily animated that the lips didn't even move, and then they made a show that was good enough to attract grown men. How did it improve this quickly? - JayJayPlane
