Top Ten Worst Comic Strips Ever

While the world gives us cool strips, like Bloom County, Pearls Before Swine, and Calvin and Hobbes, we get a few bad strips as well. If you think there's a strip I missed, feel free to add one. And th

The Top Ten

1 Calvin and Hobbes

I'm sad I had to vote for this to share my opinion. This is the only strip that has never failed to make me laugh. Crwth, he IS intended to be obnoxious. I respect your opinion. Him being obnoxious is supposed to add to the humor. He is not overrated, if anything, he is underrated. But once again, that's just my opinion, and I respect yours.

If Calvin is intended to be obnoxious, he succeeded, and it's my right to dislike characters whom I find obnoxious. Of course "ugly" is subjective, but we're here to express our opinions. I value 2 qualities in a comic strip: cleverness and artwork. I don't forgive ugly or plain-looking characters.

Mediocre and immensely over-rated. Calvin is ugly and obnoxious. Hobbes is okay.

I think it's pretty good, but it's just my opinion and I respect yours.

I didn't even add it to the list. Check my remix first, before commenting.

2 Pearls Before Swine

I don't want to vote for this to say what I really think, but here goes... I LOVE this strip. It might be *slightly* offensive to some in a select few instances, but I've never had a problem with it myself. The jokes are hilarious, and I am an enormous lover of puns, and this strip definitely has a lot of them (my favorite being about the "One-Ton Wonton Futon Juan Won").

It's not always funny anymore!

Ugly and odious.

3 Bloom County

Excellent, intelligent humor, though not for every audience.

Low-brow and tasteless.

4 Doonesbury

Doonesbury is the most asinine strip in the history of comics. He trashes Republican politicians, especially presidents such as Trump, Bush, Nixon, etc. No matter how corrupt Obama and Clinton was, he never had one negative thought about them. I never saw any humor in the 40 plus years in this stupid strip.

Not very funny, a feeble exercise in political partisanship

I follow politics, but this is boring. It has no charm.

5 Sally Forth

The characters don't look bad, but the gags are really annoying. I never liked this strip.

6 The Born Loser

I do not like this strip at all, it's very depressing, Brutus Thornapple is always picked on by his wife Gladys Thornapple and her mean mother-in-law Ramona Gargle are always picking on him and nagging him in much of the strips. I also don't like Hurricane Hattie O'Hara always picking on and bullying Wilberforce Thornapple and his father and her teacher. I do not like Rancid W. Veeblefester Brutus mean boss he's always criticizing Brutus and putting him down or getting him fired from his job and never giving him a pay raise, I wish he would retire from his job. I'm surprised this comic strip is still running in the Newspapers, if anything I want to see this strip retired. I do not like this title The Born Loser it's a negative title. This is the worst comic strip of all time. I'd rather read something funny instead with a better title like "The Born Winner" I hope this bad comic strip ends real soon because nobody likes it anymore.

Repulsive. Every character is a loathsome idiot. The artwork stinks.

7 Baby Blues
8 Frazz
9 Mutts
10 Marmaduke

Without a doubt the lamest, most consistently unfunny experience on the comics page.

Is pretty boring.

The Contenders

11 Mallard Fillmore

Makes no sense

12 Phoebe and Her Unicorn
13 Heathcliff

The dumbest comic strip ever

14 The Family Circus

Well, despite some kids asking dumb questions, the style was great and the circular panel was legit. Screw the box panel, I'll take the circle. Also, it was heartwarming, funny at the times, and sometimes dark. So this strip was popular but not that bad. Just imagine you see that fictional comic strip from Diary Of The Wimpy Kid: Dog Days and it still the same. No wonder why they hated the strip all because of making fun of religion, asking too much questions, etc. So I will give this strip a chance and make U.S Acres to be number one instead.

I don't know anyone who even likes this strip, really it's just kids asking really dumb questions.

Too much of the same joke drowning in cuteness.

The Family circus is the best By Nintendo

15 Cathy

What the hell is this?

Poorly drawn strip.

16 Modern Garfield

The first ten or so years of Garfield were pretty good. Then it became a series of recycled jokes with no thought put into them. "Garfield Minus Garfield" is much better.

I feel Garfield was in its prime from around 1980 to 2000. That 20 year stretch was when Garfield was original and humorous. Nowadays, I just don’t laugh at it anymore like I did when reading the older comics. It’s just not the same.

Garfield is trash today compared to good strip that made us laugh in the 90s.

The best (and only good) strip was the one with the pipe

17 Frank and Ernest

One of the worst-drawn comics ever. The gags are mediocre.

18 Zits

Every strip has pretty much one of three punchlines: Jeremy is lazy, Jeremy is annoyed by his parents or Jeremy is a slob. The tired old gag of Jeremy being a millennial teenager needs to die.

I really like Zits. It is spot on about how teenagers live. We can all relate.

19 Fred Basset
20 Dennis the Menace

This American comic strip isn't funny anymore, yes it was a big hit in the 1950s. But Dennis isn't a Menace anymore, Also I don't like it that Dennis bullies and annoys George Wilson his next door neighbor. Also I don't like it that Margaret Wade who's always annoying Dennis and putting him down. If anything this comic strip needs to be retired from Newspapers. Come up with something better this is over 60 years old.

21 Blondie

Blondie did great back in the 30's to 90's but the strip today was current and the characters did'nt get aged (and the Bumstead kids are still in high school until now) but some of them has other pop culture reference (such as Justin Beiber or any celebrities, social medias, etc.). But sadly, it gets really worst that the strip changed thanks to modernization but the strip remained popular and iconic. But don't tell me that The Dagwood Sandwhich will become the next meme (oh gosh don't). Every strip remained good and this list was pointless and pathetic. And how is Family Circus was number 1 in this list. Take U.S Acres to be number one instead.

Hey, this was one of my first lists. I myself hate it. And yes, I wish U.s Acres was first.

22 Nancy

Just awful. Only made me laugh, like, twice. I can't believe they replaced a pretty good strip in the paper with this garbage. It's also ugly.

23 Macanudo

In my opinion, even worse than Nancy. The ONLY upside is it's drawn beautifully. Seriously, the art style is just SO GOOD! But the jokes, if you can even call them that, are far and away the worst I've ever heard. Some of the strips aren't even jokes (I'm not saying that a comic strip should ALWAYS have jokes. Calvin and Hobbes, the best comic strip ever written, had many strips that were poignant rather than funny, but this strip isn't even that.

24 U.S. Acres

This dumb strip is really just about animals doing random crap. That is just it.

25 Prince Valiant

You have to go back years just to find a storyline
