Worst Cartoon Remakes


The Top Ten

1 Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" Ren & Stimpy The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

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.)

Did you guys know that Spike T.V. (the masterminds behind this disaster) wanted to do an adult party version of SpongeBob? Thank God the creator refused! - Jessicarabbit

2 Teen Titans Go

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!

It's so bad the animation is childish and story is generic and bland and all the characters lose their uniqueness

Mortal Kombat Advance is the Most Overhated Gameboy Advance Game Ever.

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.

, 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.

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

Sonic The Hedgehog Genesis for Gameboy Advance is more Hated than this Reboot.

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.

They are rebooting again. Why because of watches start to hate the incedt. And all filler crap.

5 The Batman

This show is awesome. - TheReviewer20

I'm lovin' it

6 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

7 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.

Scooby Doo and The Murder File from Family Guy was much better than this.


8 The Magic School Bus: Rides Again

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

9 Batman: The Brave and The Bold

Come ON! Batman The Animated Series was WAY better.

HOW CAN YOU tell TBatB is bad! HOW?

10 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?

The Contenders

11 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'm THE ONLY ONE WHO LIKES IT? - Garoto_Oceano

12 George of the Jungle (2007)

All for it - PandaRant3R

13 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

14 Alvin and the Chipmunks (2015)

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.

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

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

17 Loonatics Unleashed

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

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 What's New Scooby Doo

Personally I think this is the best version of scooby doo

This is the only good Scooby Doo remake - 445956

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.

20 Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood

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

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

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

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 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

Its ok... but the characters are un likeable, sticks is wrost she gets mad if you do something wrong.

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

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!?

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

Ben 10 Reboot Sucks same as Earthworm Jim 2 (GBA).

31 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

32 Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!

I used to love this as a kid, but not anymore. The only good thing I can say is the theme song is kinda catchy (though it sounds like the singer is getting progressively angrier as he sings it, and how did Dr. Phibes doing the Nazi march get past the censors? ). - SailorSedna

33 Rainbow Brite (2014)
34 Dexter's Laboratory (2001-2003)

Still bad, but it is apart of the original series

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

It's gold if you compare it to the 2016 show. - BlueBobYT

36 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

37 Wabbit

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

41 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.

I agree with the other user, this is one of the worst Care Bears series and it's a huge joke, not a funny one. The CGI is eh but the writing and concepts kill it. They got rid of Care-a-Lot and the Cloudmobiles, I don't like how they have the Bears living in different spots, especially Share in the Forest of Feelings (the Cousins live there), Wonderheart isn't that interesting, they only focus on certain characters, and even other characters are butchered. Hugs and Tugs don't have their original tummy symbols, Lotsa Heart is female instead of male, and Cozy Heart can't even speak? Why?

Sigh...why can't American Greetings take about as much influence from the original DiC and Nelvana Care Bears series, movies and specials to make a reboot? If they don't listen to it, then sadly the Classic Care Bears may never ever come back... - SailorSedna

It Stupid Show

46 Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Moon Crystal, known in Japan as Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal, is a 2014 original net animation adaptation of the shōjo manga series Sailor Moon written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi and produced in commemoration of the original series' 20th anniversary.

A terrible reboot/"adaptation" of Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga. It is inferior to the original because for its first two seasons it has terrible art/animation, too much focus on Moon/Usagi, horrible characterization, rushed pacing and a bad adaptation that is both too close to the manga yet at the same time not faithful at all, just going to show that the manga unlike the original anime classic has sadly not aged well and Crystal cannot stand on its own at all.

Season III of Crystal has much of the same problems but it is more watchable, characterization is done slightly better, the story is written in a way slightly better, and the animation is better also but both pale in comparison to Sailor Moon S's. - SailorSedna

47 My Little Pony: Newborn Cuties
