Worst Kids Shows of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2015) is an American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.

This shows sucks because-
1. The characters and Dora are ugly
2. Songs are uncreative and annoying (FAILED: F- )
3. Songs get repeated every time
4. Characters are stupid, ugly, uneducational, and not funny

I'm sick and tired of this crappy show and that show SUCKS because it is absolutely annoying and everything from that show SUCKS!, the show will end because its just irritating and annoying and this is inappropriate and unacceptable because the show is the most annoying show ever, and you know what, I HATE THIS SHOW, I'm ABSOLUTELY NOT INTERESTED AT ALL, I DISLIKE IT, I THINK THAT IT IS SERIOUSLY WORSE, I WILL NEVER WATCH THIS SHOW EVER AGAIN, I WILL IGNORE THIS SHOW, I WILL NOT BE INTERESTED FOR THE STUFF FROM THE SHOW, AND I THINK THAT IT IS JUST A BUNCH OF CRAP, JUST A BUNCH OF BORING JUNK, AND THE SHOW IS BORING. Not interested at all.

I refused to watch this when I was little. I thought Boots had a disorder and was going to kill Dora because she was so annoying! Honestly, I'd like to thank "Swiper" for stealing Dora's stuff. Maybe the next time he'll steal a weapon from her and use it. It's like every dumb movie out there. Like in Darkest Hour, you vote for the aliens to win. I think that Dora has an eye problem and that she seriously needs glasses and FAST. Heck, she doesn't need glasses, she needs EYE SURGERY! IF YOU CAN'T SEE A MOUNTAIN THAT'S 1 CM AWAY FROM YOU AND INCREDIBLY TALL, YOU NEED HELP NOW! Honestly, I'm ready to ask Disney and Nickelodeon to cancel all their shows except for Gravity Falls and Liv and Maddie because those shows are amazing and funny! Butt Dora is a 4 year old girl from Mexico who enjoys sneaking out of her house and going on what she calls adventures. Someone please shut down Nickelodeon and Teen Nick and Nick Jr. before I get REALLY mad! I mean, what are the creators thinking? "How ...more - maddyparrot22

Dora please don't say where is it where is it where is it just say there it is because the kids are already saying it or just say where is it once also don't leave your grandmothers house without asking because kids will doing the same thing and there parent's will get worried that there kid got kidnapped also swiper when he swipes you can't stop a stealing Fox by saying swiper no swiping

not good

2 Barney & Friends Barney & Friends Barney & Friends is an American children's television series aimed at children from ages 1 to 8, created by Sheryl Leach and produced by HIT Entertainment. It premiered on PBS on April 6, 1992. The series features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational ...read more.

I hate you you hate me, lets get together and kill barney. With a free rifle and a shot from me to him. Ha ha ha ha ha ha HA!

I agree! I mean why do they have to put it on public television. He's a giant dinosaur that smiles creepy. I bet he scares kids. I mean he is trying to be nice in the outside but he's actually evil in the inside. So for your F.Y.I. stay away from the villain Barney.

"[H]is shows do not assist children in learning to deal with negative feelings and emotions. As one commentator puts it, the real danger from Barney is denial: the refusal to recognize the existence of unpleasant realities. For along with his steady diet of giggles and unconditional love, Barney offers our children a one-dimensional world where everyone must be happy and everything must be resolved right away."
-Quote from Ted Giannoulas
I agree with him.

It's awful

The ...read more.

Cailou is a spoiled brat that needs his A** whooped. He is constantly mean to his sister Rosie and always gets away with everything. Plus his voice is just annoying.

WHY IS THIS BEHIND SpongeBob?! This needs to be voted to number 4. SpongeBob was GOOD until 2009. Cailou is just humiliating. He whines and always gets away with it. Rosie isn't much better either. Also I read a little bit and he became FRIENDS with a kid who BULLIED him! IS HE THAT BLIND?! So please PBS do us a favor. CANCEL. THIS. NOW! As for voters get this to behind Dora Barney and Teletubbies and Fanboy & Chum Chum - greatesttop10s

Me and one of my friends call him nicknames such as "Gaylou" and "Faglou"

I absolutely despise this show, reasons are because...

1. He gets mad for small reasons

2. He's a spoiled brat who deserves to be spanked with a whip

3. He's bald for no reason. I've gotten a few claims that he's bald, because he may have cancer. I looked up the truth and I think it said "Caillou is bald, because he sucks. He doesn't deserve food or love. All that stuff

4. He is a bully to his little sister, Rosie every single time. Just because, he has a younger sibling he's jealous of, there's nothing he can really do about it

5. The adults give in to him. CONSTANTLY! Why?! Just why?!

6. He became friends with a kid who used to bully him. IS HE THAT BLIND?!

7. He thinks he's the smartest kid ever when he's really not

8. He never learns his lessons and just keeps repeating the same mistakes over and over again

9. His ...more

4 Teletubbies Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Ok this is what they were thinking when they made this. Ok guys lets make a show where we have a strange looking monkey that has a T.V. coming from its stomach. A living vacuum. And a baby in the sun. Yeah guys that's real good.

Lets teach kids to literally act retarded and run and dance around and make incoherent noises like a bunch of babbling cavemen. Makes sense.

After the world ended Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Rebecca Black, and a random nerd were declared the worst people to live and so they cursed them to turn into random monkey aliens with shapes on their heads with televisions on their stomachs. They have a baby for a sun. Their life sucks and they have to eat custard to pay for their sins.

I used to watch this everyday when I was a kid and I stilll watch it all the time. Its good for kids, look at me for example...i've only killed 3 people.

This show sucks and Mario show should of came back on air not this piece of wastless cartoon characters who have no parents, like no fun for a lady, and they seem interesting to nobody! Many people like Mario more than this, they should at least air Mario more. I hate the episode Fancoy and chum chun sing freezey frolic la la freezy. Fanboy and Chum Chum is like retarded and they are smelly and the show they have is better than WINX CLUB and DORA and BARNEY!

This show is so sick! It makes me pulck. I hate fanboy because he always farts and sneeze on someone and he talks to much. I just hate this show so much. Fanboy is so sick!

The animation is hideous and character design is fairly poor the "jokes" are absolutely not funny and children should not watch this show, parents who let their children watch this abomination should probably get some sort of help. I'm pretty sure that this "show" and others like it are the reasons why the United States test scores are so low.

This is for bigger kids and I don't like this show

6 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.

This is a insult to dexters lab and Calvin and Hobbes, his parents don't care about them, and one episode is just him trying to get a video game. Really?!?!

Lil all the story lines r exactly the same it's so retarded

Stupid, Johnny is racist to agents Black And White (copied from MiB), and they work for the GOVERNMENT! The kid's also extremely spoiled always stealing his sister's inventions, the jokes are very stale, Smash Badger (his favorite video game) is Crash Bandicoot, and "minymon" is a copy of Pokemon. They also make fun of anime in one episode ma-king them! Talk! So fast! With! Dramatic pauses!

The theme song is a rip off of Green Day's American Idiot.

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.

People need to chill out with the hate, this show is awesome!. The art is great, the characters are amazing, and it's halarious. If anything finn and jake teach kids the importance of heroism and self sacrific, and most importantly to have a good time.

I personally love this show! I don't see the problem with it. Of course it is not meant for younger kids because of some of the references I have found in it. I think that the people who complain about it have 1. Only watched like one episode 2. Don't have a sense of humor 3. Or just don't want to give new things a chance even if they seem a bit "off". But this is just my opinion

Yo why is this on the list way better than all the NEW show on nick and Disney Channel (besides Gravity Falls)

This show can only be understood by two groups of people, young children and educated adults. Those who are somewhere in the middle will find it quite annoying and down right stupid. When in fact this show has more thought put into than most shows on television, it has life lessons for both children and adults, humor that children will get and some adult humor that only parents will get. The show is full of cool references and interesting subject matter. It's a show I can happily enjoy with my children and have a great Adventure Time myself. A truly great show that has a lot to offer. If you're closed minded or uptight avoid this show, it will only upset you.

Dude, Adventure Time has a huge cult following of teenagers and young adults. Check your facts before you make stupid statements like that.

I have never seen this show for a REASON, people.

9 Boobah

Me and my friend always imitate this show. and by the way, HORRIBLE NAME! - booklover1

You guys can hate on me all you want, you could go eat a rotten waffle I don't give a narwhal but honestly, I watched BoohBah for twenty minutes and it was fine. It doesn't have an educational value I admit, but it's rather an art to calm your soul. If you cannot appreciate its Picasso Style and Enhanced features Idc but really for all of you that like teletubies more than this, I lasted only six minutes with it. I never noticed until now but teletubies butts and hips may look "normal" in photos but watch an episode will you? It's not appropriate. All BoohBah is is a calming abstract puzzle complete with simple problems meant for children of a younger age ( around 2 or so.) It is merrily meant to be abstract and just look at Picasso's picture Woman. It's offensive but it's abstract. Even though his art may have been abstract and odd people still loved his work. BoohBah is meant to calm your soul and for all of you that say, BoohBah is so scary it gives me nightmares this isn't for ...more

This is the worst show that ever existed. It's completely boring, all they ever do is dance and barely talks at all, and awful backgrounds. Even barney and friends, dora the explorer, teletubbies, and go diego go is better than this awful show. This needs to be number 1

The live-action segments are just horrible. First off, why don't they speak? They act even stupider than a 2 year old. They see an item and they throw it around and play with it like a toy. They dance like idiots. Also, their names are just wrong. Mr Man? Mrs Lady? Brother and Sister? I wonder if their parents never named them at birth at all...

10 Yo Gabba Gabba! 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.

Yo gabba gabba! Really do nick jr really have to call them that? It is annoying and the characters are creepy because they are small little toys that are monsters that come to life that is all about dancing. Each episode is just about ramdom thing and heres one question what are these bumps around muno? No offense but nick jr come up with a retarded show way to go nick jr you make one of the most retarded show ever.

I hate this show so much. What are these things? Whos the random old guy that draws he's such a pedophile. And why do they randomly show kids waving on worms and beds? This is the stupidest show on the planet and it needs to go away

Yo gabba gabba is pointless and insulting its creepy and annoying I can't believe its in nick jr nick jr you suck and your other shows suck so forget it you dirty channel.

Holy cow this show is creepy. The weird monster/ serial killer puppet things are the stuff of nightmares. For some reason, some idiot thought it would be a good idea to have psychotic monster things singing about a party in their tummies,

The Contenders

11 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

I think that Peppa pig and her brother are really annoying... George is always crying his face off and Peppa has his annoying whiny voice :-(

Peppa is so bossy her borther dose not talk

Why does everyone jump in mud puddles or fall down their hides laughing like the joker? And why does Peppa call her dad fat? We KNOW that is TRUE but NOT a lesson KIDS should even learn! Is this what the world come to?

Why this show sucks:
1. It has MS paint animation
2. The characters are annoying (Especially George (not me))
3. It has bad influence on kids
4. Has no plot
5. All episodes end with the family laughing
I hope that this family visits a slaughter house - GeorgeTheNin10doGamer

12 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is an American computer-animated interactive children's television series which aired from May 5, 2006, to November 6, 2016. The series, Disney Television Animation's first computer animated series, is aimed at preschoolers.

I'm part Irish, German, and Mexican. My German/Irish family is awesome. And so is my Mexican side, except for one tiny boy, David. He watches this show all the time, so much that if I hear the hot dog song one more time my head will explode. And also, my aunt and mom spoil him with merchendice from the show. Plus, He is a crybaby who will cry over anything. And I'm only 12. Oh boy... I don't think Disney plans on canceling the show.

It's the mickey mouse club house come in side your ears will bleed so will your eyes and you will get a headache then you will kick the person in the nuts who made this show! - WWEfanJayden

Annoying describes the whole series

If I have to hear that godforsaken hot dog dance song again...

Jeez. This one sucks. The first episode: he landed and just paniced. He didn't care he was stranded on an alien planet. Nope. HE HAD TO PEE. Really?!? And one episode he had to HIDE THE FACT THAT HE PEES LIKE EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING JUST TO GET A GIRL. He thought that if the girl didn't know it was POSSIBLE for him to pee, she would love him. Where is the logic here?

It so annoying Sheen made planet with alien Haha

How pointless can at least some one buy noisy boy the robot

OH MY GOSH! This T.V. show needs to be killed I hate it so much and I saw it when I was little it creeps me out so much!

14 Hannah Montana Hannah Montana Hannah Montana, also known as Hannah Montana Forever for the fourth and final season, is an American musical comedy series created by Michael Poryes, Rich Correll, and Barry O'Brien which focused on Miley Stewart, a teenager living a double life as an average schoolgirl by day and a famous recording ...read more.

I like to refer to this show as he show that killed Disney Channel.

Miley, just stick to your hillbilly songs and makes my earsbleed instead of making a "show" and making my eyes AND ears burn

Hannah Montana is a great example of a show that forces young teenagers into a 150 % G-rated existence! In such shows, the characters are not allowed to demonstrate that they have any real "feelings" for each other at all. Even their friendships have to remain 150% "superficial! " This is a "zero tolerance" thing, and it has RUINED many T.V. shows. In The Cosby Show, they were forced to edit out of the show the scene where Theo Huxtable got his first "kiss! " Even THAT is now too "taboo! " The producers of the Teen Titans cartoon were given court orders to "cease and desist" due to the fact that Robin and Starfire were demonstrating that they had deep "feelings" for each other! The result, was a sort of "protest spinoff" called Teen ( TODDLER ) Titans Go! And the Teen Titans went STUPID from there! This whole parental zero-tolerance thing is forcing everything to remain retarded, banal, and 200% "superficial! " Even words like "I love you" are strictly "forbidden" in T.V. shows like ...more

I felt like a total idiot for ever thinking Hannah Montana was a guy.

15 Fred: The Show 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.

I hated his channel on YouTube, why do they need to kill people with a T.V. show and 3 movies?!

The show isn't funny at all

16 Sam & Cat Sam & Cat Sam & Cat is an American teen sitcom that originally aired from June 8, 2013, to July 17, 2014, on Nickelodeon. It is a crossover spin-off/sequel of both iCarly and Victorious.

I have to admit that I was very excited to see this show was being made. I loved Sam in Icarly, and I didn't like Victorious but I especially liked Cat. My two favorite characters in a spin-off sounded like a good idea and I liked the plot of it. Wrong. I watched the first episode, and I disliked everything about it. Disappointing, I really was looking forward to it. It is a shame.

This show is for idiots.

I'm not a jerk or a hater, but this show really is for idiots, it stinks.

I LOVED watching Icarly, it was hilarious and even my parents loved it, and me and my older brothers liked victorious, so when it was announced I was incredibly excited. And after I saw the first episode, it was underwhelming to put it at best. And it was just plain stupid. Imagine taking your favorite show when you were little and still like, and make an entire episode about Justin Beiber, it was almost like that. This was not what it could have been.

Who would put this awesome funny show on the list? Take it off, it's a great show! - HondaCivic

17 Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go! is an American animated educational interactive children's television program that originally aired on the Nickelodeon children's cable network in the United States and produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio .

This show was at least a little better than dora, yet it still was crap.

if they turned it into a live action longer and more of a story show it would be real cool. but its not. can you I Imagine turning it too a funny live action show/it would be really cool! - 2234

They had a stupid episode about vultures with three chicks in a stupid position like slightly left, straight, slightly right, it was dumb.

18 Winx Club Winx Club Winx Club is an Italian animated television series directed, created and produced by Iginio Straffi and his company Rainbow S.r.l.

This show can be summed up with 5 words: How Not To Write Characters.

My GOD, there is NO character that is likable in this.

Bloom is written in the same way as a Mary Sue. She's "the most powerful fairy of all", she's royalty, and she has NO personality. But she's air-headed as hell. And that wasn't even INTENTIONAL. In season 3, Bloom CHEATS her way to get new powers when she could've just SAVED HER SISTER.

The villains are slightly more likable because they despise Bloom, but they're just generic.

And the Winx Club group? STEREOTYPES. We've got: The Mary-Sue leader, the fashionista prick, the girl who ALWAYS mentions music 24/7 just because it's her main skill, the tan plant freak with a soft voice, the tech girl who always talks about technology, the "athletic" one who only shows her athletic skills in filler scenes or in a tight situation where her only hope is pulling talent out of her ass, and the animal lover. The boys are just ...more

More like strip club they look like hookers and this is an episode something bad happens they have to help it gets hard they think about giving up they try again win end of episode 2000 it's the same thing over and over

The girls in this show wear short-shorts along with short sleeve shirts or tank tops with too much makeup... THIS ain't RIGHT - darkfox808

Clichés and Sexism,that's Winx Club - PugsfromMoon

The educational preschool series was developed for television by Douglas Wood who created the concept and characters, and a subsequent team headed by Emmy Award-winning director Aidan Abril and JoJo's Circus co-creator ...read more.

The reason it flopped is probably because it's similar to dora. They actually ruin the arts. The art is like cut-outs from magazines. The classical music was all but ruined by stupid silly lyrics. Not to mention the innuendos in the blast-off sequence.

The idea behind Little Einsteins is that it teaches the Arts to toddlers. Well, it flopped. I don't know how, but it did

Yeah, 'cause you can go into paintings and animals sound like instruments. - username34

You guys are hating this show just because of a stupid little fanbase?! You guys are hating this show, saying that it's worse than Dora the Explorer, Peppa Pig, and Cailou?! Seriously?! This show is so high quality for a kid show. It features likable characters, great morals, pretty solid mythology, catchy songs, colorful animation, pretty much stuff that every good kid show needs. Guys, just stop hating on this show because of the fandom. This is arguably one of the best kid shows I have ever seen. (In my opinion of course.) - OnyxDash

This should be at number 1.

Well, ready to have 10 dislikes on this comment - EpicJake

Ugh! I hate hate hate hate hate hate this show. Please cancel it someday. - cosmo

Let's face it. If it wasn't for the fandom, this wouldn't be on here. What does deserve a place on this list, though is My Little Pony:Newborn Cuties. The mouths don't even move in that garbage.
