Worst Kids Cartoons of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Johnny Test Johnny Test Johnny Test is an American-Canadian animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation, for the first season, and Cookie Jar, for the remainder of the series.

Lemme get this straight:

Johnny is a whiny, self-centered, pathetic kid who thinks he's cool but in reality is retarded. No one likes him for the sole reason that he blackmails, lies, steals, makes dirty jokes, and doesn't appreciate anything given to him. The sickest thing about him, though, is that these qualities are woven together in such a way that children laugh and follow his behavior. My little sister watches this. I can notice very clear signs of her copying this ugly, flaming hair kid's actions. When my mom says no, she goes, "PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! " When my dad asks, "What's ten plus two? " she says "Um... Sausage? Monster truck? "

Now to the sisters. They're supposed to be geniuses, but really are idiots. Their inventions are poorly thought out and would make absolutely no sense in real life. The writers assume that if they throw in a couple scientific terms into their script, the kids will buy it. Well, NO. They're just plain idiots ...more

I remember when DORA was at the top of this list.

Sure, Dora was annoying and bland, but at least it TRIED to be educational!

I would have been happier if this cartoon was on adult swim instead. It will still be bad, but at least it will not teach kids to fart and mess up their room and whip-crack all the time!

This show is very boring, very derivative and every single unlikeable character with the exception of Dukey, Mrs. Test, Jillian Vegan and Janet Nelson Jr. (The only likeable characters) are absolutely worthless scum. But Johnny test is the worst character on the show. He's widely disrespectful, selfish, troublesome, narcissistic, bratty, annoying, insipid and completely whiny ass who thinks he's better than everyone else, constantly disobeys his parents, steals his sisters' inventions and blackmails people to get what he wants. Johnny makes Fred Figglehorn look like SpongeBob. This show needs to be cancelled. This should've ended a long time ago SpongeBob deserves to go on because it's everything this show isn't this show needs to go off the air.

In like 30 secs I change the channel! - zach2246tt

2 Dora the Explorer

I can't stand this show, her voice is so irritating my ears bleed

So annoying, it's like where the bridge and then oh yeah. Stupid, right?

All the show teaches you is how to not locate things in front of you. Who in the name of Crow Hogan and Runo Misaki would even enjoy this?

Dora is also blind and deaf.

3 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.

That show just makes me want to rip my eyes out! - zach2246tt

This show is completely stupid. Has horrible graphics. And if you haven't noticed all the voices are washed up actors

This show sucks and it is just the stupidest show ever

Damn! Another copy cat of SpongeBob from and SpongeBob also sucks!

The ...read more.

Thank god that this show is over

Calliou is a spoiled brat. His parents are constantly bending over to his temper tantrums, teaching kids that if they throw a fit, they can get what they want. This is a horrible lesson to teach kids. It actually causes kids to act more spoiled after watching it.

I can’t belive I watched this crap when I was little. All Caillou pretty much does is act like a spoiled 4 year old brat, and his parents act like nothing is happening. If you want a good show for young kids, watch Wow Wow Wubbzy instead.

Caillou the Cringe

5 The Mighty B! The Mighty B! The Mighty B is an American animated television series co-created by Amy Poehler, Cynthia True and Erik Wiese for Nickelodeon. The series centers on Bessie Higgenbottom, an ambitious Honeybee girl scout who believes she will become The Mighty B (a superhero) if she collects every Honeybee badge.

Horrible influence!

I'm glad that show is over! - zach2246tt

Totally stupid and idiotic. Glad they pulled the plug on the The Mighty B!

For your info the mighty bee is still on right now but it is still an annoying show.

6 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated comedy television series that aired on Nickelodeon from May 25, 2013, to July 29, 2016, for three seasons and 60 episodes. The series is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.


I don't think this is meant for kids. I think it's meant for older kids or teens because it can be quite inappropriate sometimes.

That kid and snake get into some weird stuff. Raunchy and unappealing.

This show is disgusting, cruel, and horrible.

The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

This show is GREAT. This should be so much lower and Dora the Explorer should be number 1!

Why should Dora be #1? Both of these shows shouldn't be on this list. - PeeledBanana

I am not a hater, but this show teaches bad roles to kids (Stan: Swearing, Nude, Shoplift. Gideon teaches kids to love obligatory your soulmate. This show also shows vomit, show unnecessary amount of skin (Dipper, Wendy), Kissing in the mouth, In Deep End, Dipper looked like he was KISSING Mermando in the MOUTH)
This show doesn't have anything to do with fantasy, it almost got rated T.V.-14-LSV. This show rip offs FOX characters and Regular Show's look and Scooby Cop's Mystery Role. The show lacks humor, but I still love the show

Why is this show here
I do think this show is overrated but a lot of people love this show

Well, I don't hate Gravity Falls, but I'm not a fan of it. It's really not my thing, but I don't think it deserves to be on this list. Lots of people really like it.

12 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

This must be for adults - KENNYSTEWART

This is only 14? I think it should be 1! - Ar0nT0pTeNz05

How is Spongebob higher than...THIS?

This show teaches kids some very inappropriate lessons, such as how to violently attack people with weapons, saying that drugging your date and forcing them to love you is ok, and etc. The characters are hideous, obnoxious, and aggravating animated abominations, their is always constant movement and flashing bright colours, and why do they use stock ducks and images of bread. This is easily the worst kids cartoon of all time. The only plus to this show is that the visuals are pretty good. If it wasn't constant obnoxious characters, flashing colours, and stock images of bread in your face, the visuals could have made this a decent cartoon.

I remember watching this when I was little. The one with the monkey and four kids. It seems like a ripoff of something, but I can't really think of what it rips off. - Lunala

It's a lame excuse for show. The jokes are mostly about farts and toilet humour. And annoying

It's a lie that it's worse

I thought the show was okay.

I remember watching this when I was ill. Memories. But I thought it was meh. But there are worse cartoons out there. - Lunala

21 Regular Show Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

This show is awesome!

I understand why some people like adventure time, the new my little pony, sponge bob or anything else which is hated for being popular but this dreadful and I honestly don't understand how anyone could watch this! Please take this show of the air or at least kill that raccoon in the most in humane way possible. I'm on my phone, don't judge my grammar as I do not want to re read my poorly written criticism.

Please take this off.

Not my cup of tea personally, characters are cringy, plots are typically about a small mediocre problem but then get overly abstract (ex: they suddenly land in space or something stupid like that) to where it just seems as though the show is trying too hard be "different". Plus, the animation makes me barf.

It's the opposite of the worst! If I was one of the characters I'd kiss marceline because she's my love...

I don't get it. Why are the new cartoon network shows are so dumb. I miss the older ones. - zach2246tt

This show sucks! A stretchy messed up dog? A guy with a sword and a pointy hat? A person made of bubblegum? A walking stupid robot? This show makes absolutely NO sense! Please get rid of this show I feel like I want to destroy the retardedness. That pretty much means everything.

27 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

But it's so great! How dare you, Whoever put this on the list got dropped on their head when they were a baby. - TexasRealm

A good show that went to crap: has horrible voice actors now, horrible dialogue now, terrible music, refused to let Ash age or advance, and is just terrifying now.

Why the hell is this on the list? I've watched this show all of my 13 years and I still watch it. This is my favorite childhood anime. (Though I prefer it in Japanese)

What are you I just finished an movie

Get Pokemon off the list right now or I will drag you to the devil. - logomax

31 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

I want this show to be canceled and forgotten. I hate this show. This is my least favorite show ever. There are two sides of Peppa. One is just a 4 year old pig who is learning things
And number two is a world of bossiness, endless snorting, and a annoying voice. The Cecily Bloom version of Peppa is bossy,whiny, annoying, and among the worst cartoon ever. Pass, present, and I will never X10 ever X10 recommend this show, never.

Every aspect of this waste of time show are just plain annoying. Especially the stupid characters. I absolutely hate them. The fans of the show are extremely creepy nerds who basically spend there time watching horrible entertainment for little girls. This show is a damn abomination.

It stinks never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever watch it

So terrible and most of the people who like it are creepy old men who don't respect people's opinions when they say they hate it.

35 Almost Naked Animals Almost Naked Animals Almost Naked Animals is a Canadian animated television series that is produced for YTV. The series premiered on January 7, 2011 on YTV.

This Canadian garbage is just worse than Fanboy & Chum Chum. Not only are Canadians lazy enough to rip off SpongeBob SquarePants, they created a show which isn't appropriate for children! The animals also look like monsters! This is the second worst Canadian cartoon to air on T.V. , behind Zombie Squirrel.

38 Horrid Henry Horrid Henry

If you LIKE watching a sociopathic, narcissistic little BRAT ruining the lives of all that know him, Horrid Henry is the cartoon for you. This show is about a boy misbehaving. That's it. That's literally the entire plot. I think it's the most ANNOYING show in the UK, not to mention the fact that it's teaching kids to misbehave. I think that this should be a LOT higher on the list. - Apricot
