Top Ten Worst Cartoon Writersbdcool3 There are some people who are good writers and some
People who write things like OCM. (One Coarse Meal) Here is my Top Worst Cartoon Writers. I will be listing episodes the writer has written and why I hate those episodes! If you have suggestions, please tell me. I'm not too wide on cartoon writer names or knowing who wrote what.
This List is NOT meant to be offensive to the person themselves and if it is offensive it is unintentional
The Top Ten
This guy should honestly be writing horror movies NOT kids shows. The one main thing from the pre-movie SpongeBob episode "Shanghaied" that he contributed was the Fly of Despair (You know the hellish portal that the Dutchman throws Squidward into). And after every single bad episode of SpongeBob that he has written I have this to say: There's seriously something wrong with this man.
He is the reason why SpongeBob is failing. Is he is trying to make SpongeBob look bad just like modern Family Guy or controversial like South Park (Even though South Park is a master piece) SpongeBob is an innocent kids show for kids and parents alike, not some terrible horror movie. He made One Coarse Meal with Mr. Krabs trying to get Plankton to commit suicide ( HOW IS THIS EVEN FOR KIDS ), A pal for Gary where SpongeBob totally ignores Gary while he is getting eaten up by a eel that looked like it came from hell. Stuck in the Wringer where The Big Pink Jerk (Patrick) Tortures SpongeBob with forever glue making him stuck there for the whole episode while the fish snap at SpongeBob for yelling at Patrick, Face freeze which makes SpongeBob and patrick look like road kill, and squids visit making SpongeBob a creepy neighbor. If you don't know what I mean check out that episode. I used to like that little yellow sponge until this guy happend with his terrible writing. Nowadays I watch ...more
Hey. HEY! Zeus was actually very good at writing without Casey, who is responsible for all these "atrocities" that he wrote. Blame Casey Alexander, not this guy!
Actually, both of their episodes are pretty good when they aren't together. Blame neither of them. For Zeus, we have good episodes like "Dunces and Dragons" or "Selling Out". For Casey, episodes like "Mrs. Puff You're Fired" and "Night Light" were decent. - KalloFox34
I agree with the guy below. He should be writing horror movies instead of kids shows. How is getting plankton to commit suicide (one coarse meal) or having a watermelon stuck in uncle grandpas mouth and everyone treats it like a joke (watermelon gag) child friendly?V 51 Comments
Casey Alexander is the worst I've ever seen for a few reasons.
1. He wrote the absolutely BORING, HORRIBLE, BULL SpongeBob episodes:
* Night Light
* Fungus Among Us
* Boat Smarts
* Atlantis SquarePantis
* Patty Caper
* The Clash of Triton
* Someone's in the Kitchen With Sandy
* A Pal For Gary (worst ever! Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde the video game is unplayable, this is unwatchable. Whenever I see this come on, I change the channel straight away)
* Karate Star
* Big Sister Sam
* Pet Sitter Pat
* Smoothe Jazz At Bikini Bottom
* Face Freeze!
* Squid Baby
* Bumper to Bumper
* Oral Report
2. He wrote for one of the worst shows ever in history, Uncle Grandpa!
If ya know them SpongeBob episodes and Uncle Grandpa well, ya know he is an absolute disaster to the T.V. world. - sryanbruen
Mr. Alexander is NOT a bad person. True, he helped with One Coarse Meal, which makes fun of suicide, Pet Sitter Pat, where Patrick torments Gary, and A Pal For Gary, where Gary also gets tormented by Puffy Fluffy and when SpongeBob had the jerkass ball, but this doesn't mean he's evil. If you don't believe me, let our tweets on Twitter to each other explain. Mr. Alexander and I follow each other and it pisses me off that people harassed the poor man.
I know here you are supposed to talk about what you think of a person as a writer, but I really feel like I should tell people what I think of Casey Alexander as a person because I am sick of people wishing death on him, along with a few other writers. Mr. Alexander didn't mean to offend anyone with One Coarse Meal. If you have depression and are offended by that episode, then I respect your opinion and I feel your pain (a loved one of mine dealt with depression), but when you wish death on Casey Alexander, or any of the other ...more - Murvine_Taylor
To Murvine_Taylor: I know we haven't met, but can I just tell you something? I don't hate Casey Alexander as a person. I just hate him as a writer. He's written episodes that are cringe inducing on their own, such as The Thing (Squidward is MOLDED in a block of cement, and he screams In agony throughout the episode) and he just really makes me upset that he's written such horrible episodes like One Coarse Meal. Suicide Jokes are not funny, I'll say that. It only worked before because the character wasn't actually going to kill himself. Zeus Cervas and Richard Pursel are WAY worse than this guy, I'll say that. So yeah...not much else to say. Anyways, if you're reading this, tell him on Twitter a kid named Josh wanted to ask him something: why do his episodes consist of things that will only make the viewer sad? It shouldn't be a thing in a kid show. Anyway. That's all I wanted to say. I hope I could get on your good side after you hear this.
Thank you for your time. -Josh
Why is this in the list? He was Tainted by Zeus Carvas anyway.V 36 Comments
This inspired the horrible writers like from spongebob series until s10 was decent now.
Richard Pursel... The most disgusting writer I have ever seen. At least Casey Alexander, Aaron Springer, and Zeus Cervas have at least ONE good SpongeBob episode to their name. He is the center of animated animal abuse and torture. A Pal for Gary and Petsitter Pat are the reasons for my animal abuse statement, and don't even get me started on Boating Buddies. Then we have the worst episode of anything animated... Ren Seeks Help. If you think pulling legs off of caterpillars one by one, burning ants with matches, and frog abuse which I am not going to talk about, you are a sick and horrible person. And don't make me talk about Ren's birth seen.
All of the episode I seen him write is either something with animal abuse or torture and don't get me started with Ren Seeks Help (which is the worst episode out of any shows I seen ever). - CartoonsGirl
This guy should honestly be writing horror stories instead of cartoon episodes. He's the reason we have the unholy abominations known as A Pal for Gary and Ren Seeks Help (we all know he's the one who should really seek help).V 32 Comments
He created the Problem Solverz and Stone Quackers. Two of the worst cartoons of all time - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
He's barely even involved with Family Guy anymore, so the things wrong with the show nowadays can't be pinned on him. And while yes, he can veto scripts, the writers would just find something even raunchier, so that means he knows there's no point in vetoing an episode idea. Blame the writers, not the creator. - Goatworlds
He was on the Drawn Together movie. Need I explain?
He is both good & Bad. Only on writing.
The only good he did in animation was Johnny Bravo.V 6 Comments
I have absolutely no clue as to why Cartoon Network ever hired this guy. His cartoons are udder garbage. He's responsible for Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, which was absolutely nauseating. He clearly shouldn't write for kids shows, or any shows for that matter. Maybe he can become a sanitation man, I mean he's good with dealing with garbage, after all.
Created Uncle Grandpa, need I say more? - Goatworlds
This creature needs to be higher. Seahorse seashell part, I... I have no words.
This guy WAS a good writer until he wrote two terrible episodes in FG which were Seahorse Shell Party and Call Girl (ONE OF, IF NOT MY MOST HATED EPISODE EVER. Yeah, it's as bad as Fresh Heir).
I thought Wellesley was a girl?
Oh Dear, I know who this is... NOTE: I didn't add this entry!
She's the "writer" of:
Life of Brian
SSP (Seahorse Seashell Party)
And that's all I know that are bad episodes - bdcool3
She wrote in Band Geeks and Chocolate with nuts. She may have wrote Mare do well but that is like saying Lauren Faust is a bad writer because she wrote Everyone knows its Bendy.
She wrote Band Geeks and Chocolate with nuts. She may have wrote Mare do well but that is like saying Lauren Faust is a bad writer because she wrote Everyone Knows its Bendy
Uh, no. She is a really good writer, just because she sucks at writing my little pony, it doesn't make her a bad writer. Just look at all of the good things she wrote.
This isn't fair. Meriwether wrote well in old SpongeBob, people.V 11 Comments
Which is sad, considering she went to Harvard. - KalloFox34
This is yet another writer with an animal abuse fetish. She's responsible for "Peter Problems," a Family Guy episode that contains a realistically-gory, drawn-out scene where Peter disembowels a beached whale with a fork lift. The scene makes the animal abuse in "Ren Seeks Help" look like a Sesame Street skit in comparison to the "whale scene."
The actual episode itself is devoid of laughs and clumsily written. Overall, Teresa Hsiao is just as bad as Richard Pursel.
Writer grade from me:F-
Give me one way how animal torture can be amusing in a show that's expected to be comedic like Family Guy or happy like SpongeBob was. ONE.
This guy has no creativity of any kind
His Fairly OddParents work was generally decent - KalloFox34
Do you guys even TRY to write normal criticism? Jesus...
The creator of Johnny TestV 12 Comments
Both of his MLP episodes, What About Discord and Princess Spike, are very unfunny. They also both have conflicts that easily could have been avoided if the characters weren't acting like idiots.
Don't forget AppleJack's "Day" Off, which was boring, dull, and bad all at the same time! - TexasBro93
He wrote, in my opinion, the worst episode of MLP season six, 28 Pranks Later. This episode is in my top 5 worst of all time. - TexasBro93
Well that's a stupid way to hate him now isn't it? Just because he made Regular Show? That's the only show he created and you guys think it is the end of good T.V. propaganda! Face it clowns, Regular Show existed and a lot of people loved it, Get Over IT! You can't hate a creator for creating a show that "in your opinion" doesn't interest you. Just be glad it wasn't as bad as other Cartoon Network shows. *looks at Annoying Orange, Teen Titans Go!, and Powerpuff Girls 2016* *shrugs* also, if we love a show you loathe, don't Even Bother! We all like different things, I like the 1980's, and you guys like...god knows what you all like... - Gehenna
He made Regular Show!
I came here for this. ONLY NUMBER 14? He created almost naked animals, fish hooks(honestly not as bad), and one of the worst cartoons I've ever seen, PICKLE AND PEANUT. Look up pickle and peanut episodes if u don’t believe me, I dare u. The show makes sanjay and craig and breadwinners look like invader zim and phineus and ferb.
This guy stinks on ice. But I hear his penis is gigantic.
-Almost Naked Animals
-Pickle and Peanut - ad48
Like PhantomStrider said in the video "Top 10 Worst Modern Cartoons Ever."
He is the animation supervillain of the cartoon world.
Besides TTG is the dictator of the cartoon world.
Hey! I want to know who put this on here! - FuffleyandPeetah
Woah, what? Why is this guy even on here? Pendleton Ward is extremely creative, and unlike a lot of the people on here, he's not into torturing his characters. They're well developed, and funny, and give you something to think about! Maybe Adventure Time isn't a show with intricate plot and stuff like that, but it's just a show made to make you feel good. That's enough.
He's awesome - 445956
This guy is not awesome, he is scarring! His works are flat out horrible. He has a history of screwing up good cartoons, and I wouldn't be surprised if he actually ruined his own show: the Loud House.
How is he bad?! HOW IS HE BAD?! I'LL TELL YOU HOW IS HE BAD! He won't leave any of our favorite cartoons alone! He ruined Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls! Don't get me STARTED on his awful disasterpiece known as the LOUD HOUSE! I hate the Loud House just as much as I hate ANY of his Dexter and Powerpuff episodes. Just like Kick Buttowski! Kick Buttowski has Chris Savino's name! WHY WON'T HE DIE?! I hate Dexter's Laboratory (seasons 3-4), I hate the Powerpuff Girls (seasons 5-6), I hate Kick Buttowski (entire run), AND I FLIPPING HATE THE LOUD HOUSE! WHY DOES HE HAVE HIS NAME IN A LOT OF OUR FAVORITE SHOWS?! HE IS AN ANIMATION SUPERVILLAIN! He even ruined the Flintstones with The Flintstones on the Rocks! His episodes are just as bad as the new SpongeBobs! That's how bad he is.
No one cares about your precious little Dexter and Powerpuff. So Let It Go. - kcianciulli
This Guy Is Awesome, When he Created The Loud House, He Pretty Much Saved Nickelodeon, He Doesn't Deserve to Be Here - ChiefMudkip
Wait a minute, this IS the same guy responsible for Dexter's Laboratory's and the Powerpuff Girls' seasonal rot! How can I trust this bastard if he's responsible for those seasonal rots?! Now, he's ruined 2010s animation as we know it with the Loud House!V 10 Comments
I can't say much about Mr. Iverson except that he apparently likes gross-out jokes.
Slide Whistle Stooges
He hasn't written to many bad things that's why he's only #5 - bdcool3
He is a good guy. He just is more equipped to horror rather than comedy,
Hello u got derek last name wrong its Iversen
Most of his episodes were good, but he also wrote One Coarse Meal. Admittedly, he regrets this. - KalloFox34
He wasn't the HEAD writer for episodes like Little Yellow Book, and SpongeBob, You're Fired. He pretty much holds the so-called "writers" together. This guy has MUCH better work in the pre-movie era, l'll say that. He shouldn't be THIS high on the list.
He's not bad he wrote as good episodes as bad ones. At least he should be lower than Casey.
He seems to be the only person who holds the writers together.V 4 Comments
Charlotte Fullerton and Merryweather Williams should be switched around. All of Charlotte Fullerton's mlp episodes, beside Suited for Success, are terrible.
Merryweather William wrote for pre-movie SpongeBob, and she has at least done some good episodes on mlp, like Wonderbolts Academy, Hearths Warming Eve, and Bats!.
Okay, Aaron Springer doesn't deserve to be here. Sure, he did some bad stuff when he was on SpongeBob, BUT, that would be undermining the fact that he wrote multiple episodes of Samurai Jack, and currently directs episodes of GRAVITY FALLS. Bad writer? Yeah, no.
Aaron Springer did some of the best episodes of SpongeBob ever, including Band Geeks, F.U. N, and The Krusty Krab Training Video. Sure, he would go on to do some Squidward torture porns in the future, one of them being boating buddies, but most of his bad reputation comes from what I think is the most underrated episode, House Fancy. You know, the one that gets hated for having a scene less than 10 minutes long? I see no reason for him to be on this list at all.
FUN was okay, but at least the other two you mentioned were awesome as heck! - Goatworlds
How did he go from writing classics like Band Geeks to horror shows like House Fancy and Boating Buddies?
He should be at number 2 at least. He created all the Squidward Torture Porns, but also had a few tricks up his sleeve.V 1 Comment
Well he did write for we bare bears so that’s one good thing
Apparently, he thinks it's justifiable to put ENTIRE music videos in the middle of an episode to pad it out an episode (See "The Juice Is Loose! " and "Foreign Affairs").
Ill have to check these episodes out cause I'm not a big fan not a fan at all of Family Guy. - bdcool3
I think he's an even worse writer than Casey Alexander or Zeus Cervas. He's written some of the worst Family Guy episodes of all time.
His episodes include:
The Juice Is Loose!
Not All Dogs Go to Heaven
Road to the Multiverse
Brian & Stewie
Brian Griffin's House of Payne
I hate his work on Cow and Chicken and I Am Weasel. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
He molested teenage girls. Get this creep higher! - kcianciulli
Why hi---Ohh... NOW I see. This guy is a pedophile! Hell, HE EVEN RUINED REN AND STIMPY IN 2003! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
He was good when he did the original Ren & Stimpy, but look what he did to the show, he turned it into Adult Party Cartoon, THE WORST CARTOON EVER MADE! Turning kids T.V. shows into NIGHTMARES!
He wrote Enchanted Tiki Dreams! - SAXO
This is the guy known as 'The Guy Who Wrote The Splinter' for me! Others he's written are:
House Sittin For Sandy
Not many others... - bdcool3
Honestly, I could go on for hours about how I firmly believe that Josh Haber is a bad writer. He's the biggest reason I think people dislike Starlight Glimmer, because he botched Season 6, which should have been the season where Starlight was developed, and instead we got a limp wristed attempt.
Josh Haber isn't a bad writer, just a really mediocre one.
This isn't fair. Haber wrote well in The Cutie Re-Mark!
HA, noV 1 Comment
Who had the idea of LGBT couples on Cartoon Network, No, Who WANTED LGBT couples on Cartoon Network, They never work, If there was a Sequel to Punch Time Explosion, A fusion Between Ruby, Sapphire, Bubblegum, Marceline, Princess Bluebelle, Modern Buttercup, EJ, and Sue should become the final boss, And all these couples I blame Rebecca Sugar for these couples and ruining my childhood
Please keep offensive opinions like that to yourself, please. - kcianciulli
Terrible inconsistent lazy writing
He Wrote episodes like Yours, Mine and Mine, The Splinter, The Card and Nothing much else. This guy is a great writer he wrote Funny Pants, Krusty Towers, Roller Cowards, Banned in Bikini Bottom, and For Here or to Go
Overall, yes, seeing as how Rocko is literally the only good thing on his track record (as downright UNBELIEVABLY amazing as the show may admittedly be) - xandermartin98
Come on! He shouldn't be here! - KalloFox34
Needs to be higher because he wrote the card which ruined patrick and the splinter
He wrote some good episodes, but most of his episodes just turn SpongeBob and Patrick into annoying little preschoolers with the IQ of a potato. Actually, a potato would be smarter than SB and Patrick in Nate's episodes. And unlike Casey and Zeus, Nate Cash's writing for SB barely improved before he left.
More like suckin
All of his MLP episodes sucked (with the exception of The Cutie Map, which was probably only good because he wrote it with Meghan McCarthy, a much better writer)
-Somepony to Watch Over Me had a stupidly executed moral and Applejack acting like a maniac
-Trade Ya was dull and insubstantial and had Rainbow Dash willing to sell Fluttershy into slavery just for a Daring Do book
-Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? Had Luna trying to hurt herself (you know, for kids) and immaturely solved it by basically nothing more than Twilight giving her a compliment
What is The Brothers Grunt? - Gehenna
An MTV cartoon that premiered in 1994 about gross white skinned red veined characters. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Take him off this list please.
Come on, I know there were some bad episodes of Ed, Edd n Eddy, but that doesn't make Danny Antonucci a bad writer. If someone put this here just because they don't like Ed, Edd n Eddy, that is just a sad reason. Watch something like A Glass of Warm Ed and that'll prove Ed, Edd n Eddy isn't a bad show. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I HATE THIS GUY SO MUCH! I HATE HIM MORE THAN PETER HANNAN! HE is the reason why I HATE Ed, Edd n Eddy so MUCH! HE is the guy who also gave us the Brothers Grunt! They praise him? YET THEY HATE TODD KAUFFMAN FOR HIS AMAZING AND FLAWLESS WORK ON GROJBAND?! THEY EVEN HATE REGULAR SHOW AND ADVENTURE TIME, YET PRAISE ED, EDD N EDDY?! ONLY A DEMONIC PSYCHOPATH FOOL WOULD ENJOY ED, EDD N EDDY AND ANYTHING BAD FROM THE 2000S, including Superjail!, Brandy and Mr. Whiskers, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Kappa Mikey, Camp Lazlo!, Chowder, the Nutshack, ANY Spike T.V. cartoon, Jimmy Neutron, Invader ZiM, My Life as a Teenage Robot, the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, any Disney or Nick sitcom, CN Real, and the scarring Chris Savino eras of Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls!
He worked on the original Ren and Stimpy. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
What?! This guy pretty much saved SpongeBob. Hillenburg may be back, but he's mostly just helps out with the writing (not that that's a bad thing, he came up with the idea for Mermaid Pants, which was an awesome episode). Vincent Waller actually runs the show with Marc Ceccarelli. Their vision for SpongeBob is to make the show as cartoony as possible while keeping everyone in character. Not bad, considering that not a lot of cartoons are "cartoony" these days. Oh, and he wrote "Arrgh! " and "Texas", both really good Season 1 eps.
Why is this guy on here dude he wrote Arghh Skill Crane which was gold he is now a supervisor with Marc Ceccerali u mad now?
This guy is a reviewer, not a cartoon writer.
He hasn't even created a cartoon episode yet. He shouldn't be on here.
People on this website really need to some research. How can someone call MrEnter a writer? He is a reviewer, NOT a writer. Whoever added him, please get your facts right. 😑 If you hate him, that's no problem but assuming that he's a writer, that is the real problem. - Hellohi
He isn't an official creator of a cartoon, so obviously the person who added him to this list wasn't too intelligent.V 8 Comments
The writer responsible for the unholy episode Sundae Muddy Sundae, a Total Drama episode which badly derails Courtney and Gwen's character. - theenter1005
Seriously dude? It's just ONE EPISODE that didn't meet YOUR expectations? Don't blame this poor guy.
I love SMS, I hate Courtney!
Let me guess, we all know him because of the hardcore travesty that was Total Drama All Stars. This guy should be a tiny bit higher, while J.D Quintel or Quintet on the other hand should be way lower than MacDonald. *singing* Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. Oops, sorry about that. ^^' heheh. - Gehenna
Doesn't say he's a bad guy just a bad writer. That's what this list is.
Writes for Teen Titans Go.
He wrote more than Jelenic so he's worse. He's the one responsible for those. - truespongebobfan
Just because he is the co-creator of TTG doesn't mean he is a bad guy.
She worked on Family Guy - Goatworlds
What show did this person work on?
...is the best name ever.
He wrote "Fresh Heir."
Need I say more?
People on this website have a creepy addiction over nitpicking everything about Spongebob so yeah, every single one of the show's writers will be number 1 on this list whereas there are worse things on T.V. than Spongebob(6-8). - Hellohi
He is a good writer if derek drymon was still in SpongeBob the show would be good
He KILLED SpongeBob. Need I say more?
Yes, he's a bad showrunner for SpongeBob, but Nickelodeon WANTED him to kill SpongeBob. I think even Paul Tibbitt doesn't wanna ruin SpongeBob. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoyV 1 Comment
He looks like someone from the 1800's - kcianciulli
You know, for being Seth MacFarlane's first assistant after Family Guy got revived, I wanted to be a great writer but sadly that's not the case. He was the one that wrote the first episode of the show I considered to be bad which was the OJ Simpson episode. He also did the herpe episode and the one with Quagmire marrying a hooker as well as the roasting Peter episode and they weren't that good. Thankfully he made up with Inside Family Guy, an episode that premiered a couple weeks ago, acknowledging some of his and other writers' bad writing in the past several seasons. So far, he's mixed. - truespongebobfan
This guy writes for Teen Titans Go. Need I say more? If I do then know this, he and Horvath write nonsensical plots that are painfully unfunny and insulting to fans of the original Teen Titans. They once wrote an episode script in 3 days and put in on the air and claim that they would never rip off someone else's work. If you could just search these two online (Their interviews) then you'll know what I mean.
WAAA HE WRTE FR TEN TITNS GO HE IS EVIL! Seriously, just because he works for TTG doesn't mean he is a bad person.
Sanjay and Craig. He made those two twits. - Goatworlds
Why did Grey Delisle voiced Darlene in "Sanjay and Craig"? She deserved much better!
He just write bad episode of FOP his the reason why some episode are boring
He is a good writer
Yes, this guy will be worse than Paul Tibbitt as showrunner for SpongeBob. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Writes several Numb Chucks episodes
He wrote some of the most boring and dull episodes of Spongebob like The Gift of Gum, Atlantis Squarepantis, House Fancy, Someone's in the Kitchen with Sandy, and Are You Happy Now. - Noobelli
Season 10 spongebob is good - Tyler730
He has worked on Superjail!, SpongeBob (season 10), Teen Titans Go!, and Breadwinners! HORRIBLE WRITER! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
His cartoon is stupid
He yelled at a fan just because he said he wasn't a fan of Fanboy and Chum Chum. - kcianciulli
