Top Ten Worst Cartoon Writers

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

1 Zeus Cervas Zeus Cervas

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

Just so I don't piss off that Murvine_Taylor girl, I'll be nice enough NOT TO MAKE A DEATH THREAT. I mean, the Post Sequel SpongeBob episodes are a bit better now, but the main villain behind the dark ages of SpongeBob was Zeus Cervas. All we want for him is to get fired and not use ideas for horror movies on kids' shows! So there you have it. I won't say any death threats. I will just say I LOATHE HIM. If you want to see something with better writing, I highly recommend Sword Art Online. It is a good anime series and it's WAY BETTER than watching One Coarse Meal or A Pal For Gary. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He looks creepy too. He looks like a non-burnt Freddy Krueger. - Aragorn98

2 Casey Alexander

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

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

He's very self-absorbed about his work. He says that One Coarse Meal (the SpongeBob episode when plankton tries to kill himself) was "A way to show that plankton was giving up on life, but it is done in such a silly way"

Can we charge into Nick studios and overthrow this guy for all the damage he did to us?

3 Richard Pursel

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

Responsible for infamous SpongeBob episodes like a pal for gary, boating buddies, pet sitter pat, etc.
Also a writer on the infamous ren and stimy adult party cartoon episode ren seeks help

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). - Aragorn98

4 Ben Jones

He created the Problem Solverz and Stone Quackers. Two of the worst cartoons of all time - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

5 Seth MacFarlane Seth MacFarlane Seth Woodbury MacFarlane is an American television producer, filmmaker, actor, and singer, working primarily in animation and comedy, as well as live-action and other genres.

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.

I understand that Seth MacFarlane isn't everybody's favorite cartoonist, but celebrating his death is crossing the line. - kcianciulli

6 Pete Browngardt

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

7 Merriweather Williams

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.

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.

Why is she above Wellesley Wild? - 445956

8 Wellesley Wild

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?

And now this person is going to be an executive producer on the Animaniacs reboot.

Be afraid, people. Be very afraid.

9 Teresa Hsiao

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.

10 Scott Fellows

The creator of Johnny Test

Do you guys even TRY to write normal criticism? Jesus...

I will ALWAYS HATE YOU, Scott Fellows! You've ruined Canadian cartoons! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He's a good writer in Fairly Oddparents but not his shows like Johnny Test and Supernoobs. come on just give him a chance, he was once good writer but not anymore.
If he creates a third show I hope it was'nt
sci-fi theme.

The Contenders

11 Neal Dusedau

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

12 F.M. De Marco

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

13 Noah Z. Jones

This guy stinks on ice. But I hear his penis is gigantic.

-Almost Naked Animals
-Fish Hooks
-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.

14 J. G. Quintel

He made Regular Show!

Ewww.. HIM! He RUINED adult animation. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

15 Chris Savino Chris Savino Christopher Mason "Chris" Savino (born October 2, 1971 in Royal Oak, Michigan) is an American animator, writer, producer, director, and storyboard artist. He is best known as the creator of The Loud House on Nickelodeon.

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!

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.

This Guy Is Awesome, When he Created The Loud House, He Pretty Much Saved Nickelodeon, He Doesn't Deserve to Be Here - ChiefMudkip

Voting him up because:

1. The Loud House became mediocre after the first half of season 1. It's a shame too. It had potential.

2. Apparently, he just got fired from The Loud House for sexually harrassing female coworkers, so...

16 Pendleton Ward Pendleton Ward Pendleton "Pen" Ward is an American animator, screenwriter, producer, and voice actor who works for Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator Studios. He created the Emmy Award-winning series Adventure Time and the internet series Bravest Warriors.

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

17 Doug Lawrence (AKA Mr. Lawrence)

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.

He is good writting
And voice of plankton and larry
And writter season1,2,3,
He is good writter.

18 Derek Iverson

I can't say much about Mr. Iverson except that he apparently likes gross-out jokes.
Slide Whistle Stooges
Shuffle boarding
Squids Visit
Pineapple Fever

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,

19 Charlotte Fullerton

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!.

20 Aaron Springer Aaron Springer Aaron Springer (born September 5, 1973) is an American cartoon director and storyboard artist. He is best known for his work on the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. Springer has collaborated with various animation veterans such as Genndy Tartakovsky, Paul Rudish, Rumen Petkov, Stephen more.

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?

Plus, he's creating Billy Dilley's Super-Duper Subterranean Summer on Disney. So, that's INCREDIBLY exciting. He also made Korgoth of Barbaria, which was sadly rejected by [adult swim] for being too expensive. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
