Worst Disney Channel Shows of 2012

The Top Ten

1 Shake It Up Shake It Up Shake It Up (sometimes stylized as Shake It Up!) is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel in the United States from November 7, 2010 to November 10, 2013. Created by Chris Thompson and starring Bella Thorne and Zendaya, the show follows the adventures of CeCe Jones (Bella Thorne) ...read more.

Shake it Up is the biggest mistake Disney ever made. The whole concept of the show is ridiculous. Two teenage girls dancing... Oh fun. The dancing is the same in every episode.. The same moves. A show like Shake it Up Chicago would never exist today. I especially hate the way Rocky makes fun of Cece because she is not smart, even though she has dyslexia and the way Rocky is made to be boring and stiff and is always being told to change just because she cares about behaving properly and schoolwork. The girls are disrespectful to adults, especially in the episode where they try to prevent school uniforms. What is the big deal? Not every kid can wear an amazing outfit like the two of them and those two ridiculous twins, which also does not make sense. Also, if Cece supposedely has a single mom on a fixed income, how can she wear such as extravagant and ugly outfits to school every day? Not to mention, those girls wear too much makeup for being what, 13? They act like they are adults. ...more

It's so annoying. Rocky and CeCe try to act too grown up, it's a bad influence on children. They wear WAY to much make up considering there 13, there obsessed with clothes and bags and it's annoying. They are so disrespectful and can't dance at all.

Remember that infamous song that referenced something inappropriate for kids? The acting is horrendous, with the dancing equally bad. Because of the episode "Eat It Up", the eating disorder joke was what killed not just this show, but Sonny With A Chance too. When Demi retired, they made the new train wreck "So Random", the worst excuse of a skit comedy.

I totally remember this show

2 So Random

Wow, even the ancestor episodes in Sonny with a chance were better than this. I mean, you have horrible sketches, Offensive pop culture references (Dancing with the Internet Stars my a**), and Radio Disney stars as appearances (aka Awful Singing). My god, many of the shows on Disney Channel has similar flaws with this, but this one has so many, making it the second worst Disney Channel show ever! (Jonas L. A takes first).

I honestly can't tell the different a between all these Disney shows. Has any one noticed that Disney Channel is way more appealing for girls than boys? It's also odd how a studio really famous for their animated movies has a channel with hardly any animated cartoons at all?! The only thing that I think is good is Gravity Falls.


It's an All That rip off, there. - nelsonerica

3 A.N.T. Farm A.N.T. Farm A.N.T. Farm is an American teen sitcom which originally aired on Disney Channel from May 6, 2011 to March 21, 2014. It first aired on May 6, 2011, as a special one-episode preview and continued as a regular series starting on June 17, 2011. After airing as the preview of the series, the pilot episode ...read more.

Chyna and Olive are abusing Fletcher, and they are supposed to be his friends. They do not even care about him. Also, Lexi is actually really ugly and very bratty. Angus is really annoying, plus, he is a computer geek and everybody thinks that is a talent. I mean, like what? Olive is nothing but a NERD and being a nerd is NOT a talent. Chyna can not really sign, and Flecher... Well he is supposed to be a loser and dork, but he is actually the ONLY talented child in WHOLE series. But I must admit he is kinda annoying sometimes. BUT, the worst character is GIBSON. He is pointless, just like Lexi and Paisley. All three of them are really stupid. Also, in this show boys ALWAYS get bullied and embarrassed and girls are PERFECT and smart. I am a girl I personally HATE that.

Ant Farm, is really Un-Realistic, I know a lot of people who can draw like that, and they didn't just skip middle school to highschool, I mean really? Just because he can draw so good? How does that help with math, science and all the important subjects, same with the girl, so what she knows how to play a lot of isturments? The only one who can go ahead and skip grades like that is the blonde girl whose really smart. (Sorry I can't remember names. I apologize).

This show is so bad that it's not. Even a show it's just something that's there and is in our way. When it first came on it was so terrible that I didn't think that anyone on earth would like it. The I read some comments about the show and it just makes me wanna cry when people say best show on Disney channel. What do they see in it. Have you guys seen showed like wizards and goodluck Charlie. It's just sad that people like it. I think it's mainly because china stars in it, but even then her character doesn't suit her personality. Just take the show off the air.

I think it's a wonderful idea for a show.

Yeah it was a good idea, but personally Disney Channel ruined what could have been good potential. - Anonymousxcxc

4 Good Luck Charlie Good Luck Charlie Good Luck Charlie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from April 4, 2010, to February 16, 2014. The series' creators, Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen, wanted to create a program that would appeal to entire families, not just children.

I don't even know why Good luck Charlie is here. Like, it's the best sitcom in Disney Channel 2012 so far. It has the pretty Bridget Mendler and Charlie. She's so cute! Why would you put good luck Charlie, the best sitcom so far in the list for the worst Disney shows. I don't care if it is in the bottom. I care if it's in it. I hope its in the best Disney Channel shows and if it is, then why put this lovely show up?

WHAT! Whats wrong with you people good luck Charlie is the best show that ever come to disney but I stil miss the old disney shows wait what if disney bring the old disney show along with the good new shows like good luck Charlie gravity falls and maybe Jessie but totally NOT ANT farm shut down ANT farm but leave good luck Charlie on set

Good Luck Charlie Is like the best Disney Channel show in 2012 and it is still the best in 2013! Every single character has a funny personality. Bob always talks about bugs and never wants Amy to cook. Amy is very sassy when she says BABAM and always wants to have the spotlight and in most episode she talks about her years in high school or college. She also has crazy enemies like Debbie Dooley and Karen PJ is very dumb but cares about his family and acts crazy with Emmett. Teddy always wants to succeed she has crazy friends like Ivy, Vonnie, Victor, and Kelsey. Gabe's sarcastic and sneaky personality is so funny. Mrs. Dabney and him make the show very funny. When he makes fun of Bob being fat, Amy's cooking, and how PJ is dumb it is so funny. Charlie is so adorable and she is like her mom and doesn't like Toby. Toby is so adorable. Debbie Dooley has that weird voice and in that episode where she said her Debbie Dooley's do's and don'ts to Amy and Amy mocked her and when Debbie was ...more

You people are obviously not mature enough to respect others' opinions. This show deserves full and well to be on the list.

5 Dance-A-Lot Robot

Could someone fill me in? I've never watched it before. Probably because I'm eleven and too old for that... But I have cousins who are toddlers and I've never seen them watch it. Maybe it's because for once, you people are right- it might be actually bad. Huh. Weird. Everyone hates the best shows (usually) but perhaps you're right about this one.

I do not get disney Jr. now... Don't air it in UK, it's tortured USA and now it's raiding UK!

6 The Octonauts The Octonauts The Octonauts is a British children's television series, produced by Silvergate Media for the BBC channel CBeebies.

This show drops IQ points. It turns kids into dumb adults who think that they need to help every little animal that they find, including poisonous ones. Fans of this show are some of the most annoying, retarded people you will ever meet. I will hate this show and other ones like this forever. I hope all these kinds of educational preschool shows (including Nick Jr. ) get cancelled form the normal channels and moved on to their own channels. That's what the channels were created for. So that older kids wouldn't have to deal with this baby junk anymore. But no, instead they have to be lazy and keep them on the normal channels, like they should've.

Its a kids show. Its called Disney Junior for a reason.

TAKE THIS OFF THE LIST! NOW! This is beneficial for kids! It teaches them about animals! Other shows like Dora teaches nothing but how to stupid. Replace this with Dora the explorer!

Actually Dora isn't Disney Channel so it shouldn't be on this list even though it is stupid. - PianoQueen

7 Jessie Jessie Jessie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from September 30, 2011 to October 16, 2015. The series was created and executive produced by Pamela Eells O'Connell and stars Debby Ryan as Jessie Prescott, a small town Texas girl who moves to New York City to try to become an actress, ...read more.

Full of stupid stero-types like Ravi meditating and the strong accent. And its teaching horrible lessons, Zuri is such a brat! Talking back to teachers and being a spoiled idiot. Also it's super inappropriate, sliding hidden sex jokes. "Do you have an off button? " says jessie. "Try and find it ;)" says Luke. Seriously? A 10 year old hitting on a 19 year old? Also talks about Mr. Kipling ripping her teddy bear and saying now it will never have children. Like what?! She's like 6 or something. And don't get me started on the Theme song. Ugh. It's annoying and Debby Ryan can't sing. I'd rather have you stick to acting! What the hell disney, since when are you so inappropriate? Find better actors.

Zuri is a brat she thinks she is so adorable but she is so annoying

Awful show. Unbearable acting. Lame jokes. And the worst is Debby Ryan's awful singing. I cringe whenever I hear the opening song.

Worst Disney Channel show ever. - Anonymousxcxc

8 Jake and the Never Land Pirates Jake and the Never Land Pirates Jake and the Never Land Pirates is an Annie Award-winning musical and interactive American children's animated television series shown on Disney Junior.

Who cares if kids like pirates? Just cancel the dang show already. It isn't any good. It's junk! Nobody cares!

My lil sister and cousin both 4 and they watch almost all Disney jr show but that NO! :-( :-(

I think it's not bad for a T.V. show.

9 Austin and Ally Austin and Ally Austin & Ally is an American teen sitcom that premiered on Disney Channel on December 2, 2011, and ended on January 10, 2016. The series was created by Kevin Kopelow & Heath Seifert, the writers and producers of the Disney Channel sitcoms Sonny with a Chance and Jonas.

Okay so sometimes I watch this show but then I can get tired of it. Trish, Austin, Dez, and Ally. Let me talk about each one of them in a short version.

Trish: This girl probably made a Guinness world record holding the most jobs in a week. She constantly had a new job and not every job had a a weird looking hat you wear on your head and when you have your job you should be on your job. Well I don't about Trish but she isn't the nicest friend ever and she's not the best actress.

Dez: Every show needs a funny guy so apparently this show has him. Sure he can be funny but jokes are so overused in disney channel. And for a teenager Dez can be very clueless. And he looks like a clown in ever episode.

Ally: She's shy, writes songs, and can dance like nobody's business. But she works at a music store and a lot of times she leaves the store unattended. I swear if I went to that store and she wasn't there I would've stolen a violin and made a run for it. But any who I ...more

In my personal opinion, I don't like this show, Laura Marano and Ross Lynch are terrible at acting. Also, the concept and story of this show isn't very original. And they need to be more creative with the names, "Jessie" "Austin and Allie" they're just using the main characters' names'!

This show sucks. Ross lynch is talented, he can sing, he can sort of act. But don't get me started on ally. Ally is really clingy to austin. She is boring, obsessed with pickles, and writes the worst songs in the world. She can't sing either. Dez, I want to kill myself anytime I see him, Which is actually EVERY SINGLE EPISODE! Trish, I like. She is funny! But on a scale on one to ten, I'd say negative infinity...

You try write a song and Ally doesn't make crap songs. The actual writers of the songs are much more talented than you - sryanbruen

Never watch it. You will die!

10 Fish Hooks Fish Hooks Fish Hooks is an American animated television series created by Noah Z. Jones which originally aired on Disney Channel from September 3, 2010 to April 4, 2014. Twenty-one episodes were ordered for the first season.

Just a copy of SpongeBob

Disney Channel had a few animated flops, but this is the first modern one to be bad. Thanks to not taking advantage to explore with the plot, mediocre animation, and lack of good characters. Not to mention, the worst credits ever.

Definitely the WORST I mean no one acts like this in real life and at the end of like every episode, there's a snake with a mouse in a terrarium. Seriously! Who would put a mouse and a snake in the SAME terrarium. Another thing is, fish don't talk and Milo just acts stupid!

This was so weird. I'm confused at how the fish can get out of there tanks so easily and that the owner of the pet shop never notices.

The Contenders

11 Mr. Bean Mr. Bean The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is a childish buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone at the address of Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and a skinny red tie. He also usually ...read more.

I love this show, but I only watch when I actually visit my mom's family in Asia! This show does not even air in my country!

Mr bean only aired on Disney Channel Asia

I have never ever heard of this show was it a show but just unpopular so they canceled it?

No I think it airs in Asia (I have relatives in Singapore and whenever I was little and visited the country I would watch this show. It was actually good). - Anonymousxcxc

Really inappropriate like a swear cup crash is mean my dad is stuck with girls now and when he was little clole has her brand what's next her own store don't even get me started on the blond girl she's a brat all but the thing I hate most about this show is they put girls in a bad way like I like soccer and board games but they say girls like glitz pageants and make up I try to stay away from that kind of stuff thanks for reading

This show is about a demented puppet and its owner going on stupid adventures. My sister loves this show and whenever she watches it, I feel like throwing out the T.V. and playing Monopoly instead. AND I don't LIKE MONOPOLY. (actually I do, but yeah. )

To me it's wrong to put a 13 year old boy with a 8 year old girl IN the same room together. They actually did that on this crappy show. Very inappropriate for a Disney Channel shows.

I think its great.Love the puppet!

13 Dog With a Blog Dog With a Blog Dog with a Blog is an American television sitcom that premiered on Disney Channel on October 12, 2012, and ended on September 25, 2015. The series stars G Hannelius, Blake Michael, Francesca Capaldi, Stephen Full, Regan Burns, and Beth Littleford. The series was co-created by Michael B. Kaplan.

Well, let's start with Stan. So he's a talking dog. There's a kid show called Martha Speaks that has a dog who ate alphabet soup and talked. Also, she can type on the computer! He can also be overdramatic. That episode with Kilgore, 1) This is a human you're asking questions about, not a dog. 2) He shouldn't know your a dog who can talk! Now Avery. She's supposed to be a 12, 13 year old kid, but she acts like she is an adult! I really hate her. Tyler, the teenage boy who's dumb. How original, not! OK, we all know this would happen in the show. But suddenly, he's a math genius! That makes, like no sense at all! Chloe, the youngest one. It's too long to explain so let's just say she's weird. Last, but DEFINITELY not the least, Bennet and Ellen. They are very bad parents and actors. Especially the most annoying running gag that they keep mistaking, where they forget Chloe, and yell simultaneously, "CHLOE! ". In a nutshell, Dog With a Blog is one BAD show.

This show is not funny and it uses some over used things like the secret plot and talking animals, and while I'm not bothered by most of the sitcoms on Disney Channel you do have to wonder if they have enough sitcoms already. Overall, Disney please let this show just go for one or two seasons before being cancelled, please.

Thank You I thought I was the only one that thought this show dose not make any sense, an dog the can talk and blog really. Its not funny at all. They really need to bring back the old Disney Channel!

I think it's one of the best shows ever.

14 Cory In the House Cory In the House Cory in the House is a television show, which aired on the Disney Channel from January 12, 2007, to September 12, 2008, and was a spin-off from the Disney show That's So Raven.

Wow I am speechless it only lasted a year and why does the little girl act so mean to Cory and why is he even there the prez hired only the father so why should he live there anyways

This show was rubbish garbage. One of the worst Disney Channel spin off's followed behind the suite life on deck.

Who ever dislikes they are all stupid idiots this is like the best Disney shows unlike dog with a caca

This show is awesome it shouldn't even be on the list.

It's so stupid it's the same thing every episode. The boys make a contraption. The platypus defeats the villain. A beam destroys the contraption. Candace does not bust the boys and the show ends and Candace is crazy. They should get busted and phineas and isabella should fall in love.

Why is Phineas and Ferb on this list? This is an awesome show! Even though they have the same thing over and over again (boys build something, sister tries to bust them, platypus and evil doctor's actions affect sister trying to bust them), for every single episode they are always so creative!

They weren't creative, they were breaking the rules that state that you have to be a certain age to build such things that can harm others and yourself as well as themselves, and their parents never let their children learn the lessons. - nelsonerica

Good show.

16 Kid vs. Kat Kid vs. Kat Kid vs. Kat is a Canadian animated television series developed and produced at Studio B Productions, in association with YTV and Jetix Europe for its first season and Disney XD Europe for its second season.

I don't think Disney had a single Canadian Cartoon ever after this one's short run time when Disney first came out. So is that a coincidence?

I hate the kids it like A... Loser show

Teaches kids cats are dangerous.

This is really quite a bad show kam scared of cats and this show just freaks me out and a little kid watching it they will get a massive fear of cats.

Wizards of Waverly place was awesome


This show gets on my nerves, if I could choose a word to describe all the episodes they have shown, it would have to be the word annoying. To other individuals I am sure they think I am wrong but I honestly cannot get past Selena Gomez' characters stupidity.

This show was awesome! Me and my mom watched together.

18 Code 9

Code 9 is one of those shows that is more of a prototype than a real prank show. I mean, after 2 other failed attempts, we really couldn't trust this idea anymore.

This show is absolutely stupid as hell. I do not understand why they even have it on there, because I doubt anyone eve watches this. By the commercials, I had thought it'd be good. The show is both fake, and overacted.

Stupid and idiotic all around, thank god it was cancelled by people who had brains.

This show is awful! They should prank the actors

Okie this show just started and I watched the first episode I thought it was so stupid. Really a girl who won't stop singing and she thinks she's so great and really a brother that yells because he can't go to the bathroom with the door open. Really? And they start crying and hugging because they were sisters by chance friends by choice. I don't man I miss the old disney

If you like squeaky voices and terrible acting from the stars of the show OR spoiled rotten annoying brats, this is the perfect as show for U.

Maddie's the only good character on this pile of crap! Liv your show sucks!

This aired in 2013, this list is for the shows that were around in 2012. - Anonymousxcxc
