SpongeBob was a good show until after the 2004 movie, in which the original creators retired and got replaced by bad dull creators with few ideas, SpongeBob has gone downhill by becoming boring and inappropriate, it's true.

Dude this show is awesome try to stop being a haters and go to hell

I think is talking the modern spongebob

2 Dance Academy

It is stumped and why do all of theses shows. Have people with Australian accents

The Australian accent is because they are in Australia I think it shows a bit of diversity. It also shows how tough the world of a dancer truly is.

It is a great show it has a lot of meaningful messages in it. a lot of kids have even learnt from it.

This show was us aussies downfall I've seen about 10 episodes THEY SUCK

3 In The Night Garden

This show is the worst ever. It has no plot and it is not funny. It gets old. I feel bad for the actors. It is that bad.

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.

It's the whole reason I don't like Disney. I mean, what is wrong with this stupid stuff.

Are you kidding? This show is great! Even better maybe if they take off Karen Brar.

This show suck. The peole that did the voids are ugly. this show will be over.

9 Yo Gabba Gabba Yo Gabba Gabba! is an American live action/puppet children's television show starring five costumed toys-come-to-life and their friend DJ Lance Rock.

The ...read more.

He is five, he is completely bald and I speak French and caillou mean pebble or small rock in French plus he is such a brat and his voice is annoying

Caillou is such a brat. I remember one episode where he wanted to go to the pumpkin patch but his parents wouldn't let him. He kept asking and asking and begging but they kept saying no. Finally he threw a temper tantrum and his mom and dad were all like, "Ok! Ok! We'll let you go to the pumpkin patch! " Well, PBS, thanks for teaching us that throwing a temper tantrum will get you anything you want.

He is five yet he is completely bald - pensrule87

This show started in 1997, a Canadian kid show debut on teletoon which was also the very first show

The Contenders

11 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas ...read more.

Its absolutely horrible, should be number 1 really.
The same episode repeats over and over. Well really 5 seasons of the same plotline with a touch of added detail. Reeeaaall small.

Like, for instance, THIS episode, Phineas and Ferb build a castle made out of cat whiskers, but LAST episode they built a shack out of dog poop for a homeless bard. The only thing they change is the thing they build, but every episode follows the same story: They build something, Candace tries to bust them, Mom don't believe her, Perry beats up Doofenschmirtz, blah blah.

I hate the songs, stereotypical, racist and unlovable characters, and the fact the the most annoying little black haired girl shares the same name as me, and it is plain disturbing hearing the little triangle-headed turd say it. Its like he's talking to me -_-

This show should hands down be the number one. It is awful! No one cares about them making stupid inventions and they never go back to school

Its just really bad every time I have to watch it with my cousin I die of bordem. Like my god its really crap.

If you plug the story into any diagram, the events are always the same. First of all it is annoyingly repetitive "hey Ferb what are we gonna do today" in every episode they always build something utterly retarded, Candace the dumb bitch sister always tries to catch them but always fails, mom comes home and whatever phineas and ferb built is gone...

12 Max and Ruby

My opinion is why haven't they been taken away by the government for being SO DAMN PARENTLESS?

Where the hell is there mom?


First of all phineas and ferb, shake it up, and fish hooks are all fantastic shows. But this show shouldn't even be a kids show LIKE SERIOUSLY RUBY IS A BITCH!

13 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

Marceline from adventure time is my little love so this cartoon can't be the worst...

Rip off of King Arthur & the Knights of Justice. - playstationfan66

Total Medieval Crap so stupid and lame it makes me wanna watch porn

I hope this show die!

14 Fred: The Show Fred: The Show is an American television series, created by Lucas Cruikshank that originally aired on Nickelodeon, in the United States from January 16 to August 3, 2012. It was cancelled after the first season due to low scores.

THE worst show on Nickelodeon. It's like Fanboy and Chum Chum in real life, no kidding!

The YouTube channel is great, but now that it's scripted, I HATE IT, same as the annoying orange!

It really makes me sad how shows like Horrid Henry, Fairly Odd Parents and Gravity Falls can even be on this list and it angers me how they are all higher that this diabolical excuse for a T.V. show.

Let me explain the show to you.
A 15-16 year old boy with the mental age and voice of a five year old live with alcoholic, gold digging mom who is basically the neighbourhood slut (she arrives home in the mornings, drunk in a huge portion of the episodes). His dad is in prison and he is bullied by the school bully Kevin. He has a crush on the school bad girl Holly (as his crush in the Fred movies left, to go home to England? I don't know). His best friend is the weird girl with an even weirder name, Bertha.

The show revolves around his idiotic ways, him usually humiliating himself and screaming like a two year old having a temper tantrum.

I strongly advise against watching this as it is 15 minutes of your life you will never get back, you IQ probably drops about ...more

15 Super Why! Super Why! or The Reading Adventures of Super Why! is an American-Canadian children's CGI animated show developed by Angela Santomero and Samantha Freeman Alpert.

16 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

Why is this even on here?

Hey! This is a good show take it out and replace it with Barney!

This should not be on here!

17 The Upside Down Show The Upside Down Show is an Australian children's television show originally aired on Noggin, Nick Jr. Australia, ABC, Seven Network, Nine Network and Network Ten.

Um... Excuse me I happen to love this show still! I watched it 10 years ago and I still like it! Don't judge all you haters out there, this show was part of my childhood!

This is hilarious! Please take this off.

Who ever put this on here your evil

21 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 another show trying to be like SpongeBob. It has horrible story lines, and I can't even stand the characters.

22 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.

I mean, animals in their underwear running around a hotel? Pathetic! Whoever watches this nonsense cartoon has serious health problems. Shame on you, Noah Z. Jones!

Its funny but stupid

I agree with you..

Noah Z. Jones is the worst show creator in the world he can't even make a good T.V. show

23 Horrid Henry
24 Uncle Grandpa Uncle Grandpa is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt for Cartoon Network that premiered on the network on September 2, 2013. The series is based on Browngardt's animated short of the same name from The Cartoonstitute.
25 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.

Hey, take this off!

Teaching little kids about monsters that go inside a ball, none the less, teaching kids to battle anyone that comes into eyesite! The games are all right but otherwise, I know that when I was younger I was scared of Pokemon!

26 Pocoyo

Not that bad. not the most educational show, yet it's a good treat to kids. the animation is nice too.

27 The Naked Brothers Band The Naked Brothers Band is an American children's television series created by Polly Draper for Nickelodeon.

Undisputed the worst garbage ever made!

The guy who created Marvin Marvin was a selfish idiot, he ripped of Marvin the Martian because of his name & alien species, he also ripped off E.T. because of his glowing finger, this show deserved to be cancelled, there was no plot on it.

29 Scaredy Squirrel

I hate Scaredy Squirrel with a passion! It masquerades as funny, but it almost makes Squirrel Boy look like a masterpiece! The jokes fall flat, the animation is horrific cheap, and the characters are beyond weird. Very little redeems this show, so I would rather watch Fanboy and Chum Chum and Rocket Monkeys. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE!

Love this show it rocks
Your just haters

33 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 show is nothing but pure crap, green ducks that look like dead frogs that shove bread towards other "duck's" mouths and shake their a$$es, not cool or funny.

Worst T.V. show ever!
