Worst Nick Jr. Shows

The Top Ten

1 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer is an 2000 American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner.

So basically, I thought Dora was just a computer game. I mean, there's a giant arrow on screen so, why not? Then Nickelodeon claims the show as theirs (like we really want it, ) and makes it even more idiotic than it should! The characters are one dimensional and are annoying as hell. The bull sounds like he's on crack, and Dora acts like the laziest ever. Just please cancel this show already, I prefer sesame street.

Dora is blind and deaf. When she sees star mountain, she says, "Can anyone tell me where is star mountain? " and she knows it's over there. "It's over there, you mindless dudyhead, " I say. " Where? " she says. "There, you wet dog! " I say. "I might be losing my marbles. Boots, quit this mission, " It's like a ripoff of regular show but with no violence, romance, and hurtful words. What if she goes on a date? Her pants aren't tucked in so, we can see her crack and half of her buttcheeks. "Hey, Dora. You look horrible and tuck in your butt, " I say. She went on a date with Diego and butt kissed Benny and called big red chicken fat. The friends will beat her up and eat her.

Dora is ugly and is she blind or something? When their destination is right in front of her she asks you where it is. This ugly chubby girl gets on my nerves. And that ugly fat chicken is bigger than dora. He needs to cut down on the chicken feed. Oh and by the way what is that green lizard looking thing? And if I bought a pool of sharks, dora and her friends would be the first to use it.

I used to like Dora as a 4 year old but not any more I cannot take it the characters are stupid and the animation is bad. Sometimes my sister wants to watch it and I have to watch it because I have no choice.And her parents just let her explore without them, seriously? Please make some better shows nick Jr. Actually all of the shows on nick Jr. Are very stupid

2 Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi is a cheap CGI animated series where a porn star named Milly, a black guy named Geo, and a Windows Vista computer named Bot go on weird adventures.

This show drops I.Q. points it is so stupid. I am not even kidding. OH NO! THERE IS NO ICE CREAM! ITS AN EMERGENCY!

This show makes no sense! How does it teach kids anything? They help kids who are spoiled brats who can't just do it themselves. I mean, seriously, come on, no ice cream is an emergency?! Those tiny-tots want to help kids out in a real emergency? They should help kids learn about health and safety and stuff like that but no, instead those kids have to be craptards and call some Pollies and a boxing robot for help. Get real!

Is getting old. How the hell is it meant to be for kids when it's just a piece of crap? We have bloody Milli, smelly Geo & stupid Bot and the ugly car who we have to beat up. So who's on my team?

If there's a problem I will NOT call Team Umizoomi I will call the police, firemen or Ghostbusters.

They're blind. My 2-year-old sister LOVES it. I come in and watch it to see everyone get HUMILIATED, and as soon as I turn red, I scream, "RAGE QUIT! " and search for this.

I honestly think this show's worse than Bubble Guppies and Dora the Explorer. - Powerfulgirl10

3 Bubble Guppies Bubble Guppies

Ok this show is bad as hell!
Character reviews read below
Molly: The pink haired leader of the group (who possibly has a crush on Gil) is so freakishly annoying she is always singing and has a bad attitude. But her voice don't get me started

Gil: the blue haired one of the group. molly likes him and I'm not sure if he likes her back. (Voiced by Zachary Gordon) is the worst character ever he is the one who usually comes late, to class and that creepy fish teacher doesn't care

Goby: that weird African American kid is stupid well dumb and he doesn't teach kids nothing

Deema: that ugly blonde haired drama queen of the group. Has the same hair as her school. She is always in charge of stores in new episodes and doesn't give her five other friends a chance

Nonnie: that orange haired kid that wears goggles, is infected with autism and is an Irish boy. None of his five mermaid friends knows that he has autism but speaking of which nonnie rarely speaks he only ...more

It is not bad but I just don't like it.

This little stupid guppies don't really have to go to school if they didn't want to there is NO ADULTS THAT GIVE A CRAP about where they are. Plus even if they did choose to go to school its NOT EVEN SCHOOL all they do is tell stupid stories, eat lunch, play outside, and SING WAY TO MUCH. I am watching this showright now just to make fun of its stupidity and this episode they are talking about driving CARS and there directions are very simple and stupid TURN AND HONK. This show needs to be PULLED FROM THE AIR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Ugh Dina is the most annoying character on this show! She is so annoying I just want to punch Dina in the face!

4 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

I have four truths about this show:
1. Peppa has a British accent because she has got adopted by mummy pig and daddy pig daddy and mummy pig where 17 when they found peppa as a baby she was standing next to a house that was on FIRE! Some idiot must have murdered her real mom and dad and siblings or it has got on fired cause the idiot who killed peppa's real family burned their bodies up and poured gasoline on them and caused peppa's real family to die of a firearm!

2. Why does she laugh at things that are not funny she ends up rolling on the floor laughing! : I know the whole family laughs but peppa has a giggle attack it is because something invades her body or she constantly has laughing problems she just needs to be operated

3. How come the animation is messy? :I know the animators are adults but here goes nothing the animators probably got four-seven year old kids to make all the animation no wonder it is messy and not right.

4. Peppa's friends: I think ...more

How the hell is this NOT number one?!

The animation was obviously done in MS Paint. And what's worse? It looks like a 4 year old's drawings pasted into it! The voice acting is crap, it sounds plain and fake. George is annoying, all he says is "DINOSAUR! " which is extremely annoying. But it's even worse when he gives that migraine causing cry over something dumb! Peppa calls Daddy Pig fat all the time, which teaches kids to mock fat people. Mommy Pig always criticizes Daddy Pig, with something like "Are you sure you wanna read the map? We'll get lost, like we ALWAYS do." I guess their just inferring that housewives are whiny... Peppa is extremely bossy, and her voice is so raspy it sounds like her voice actress has a sore throat!

This show gets a 0.8 out of 10. It's a blessing from Jesus that it was canceled.

Many bad things about this show:

1. The animation is very messy, and was obviously done on Microsoft Paint.
2. Peppa's a bossy brat who once blamed her father for leaving the school's teddy bear at the supermarket when it was her responsibility to take care of it.
3. George is a whiny idiot who is always crying his face off at something dumb. Also, he only says one word at a time, like "Dinosaur", "Why? ", "No! ", etc.
4. Mrs. Rabbit has every job on the show, can't she let anyone else handle her jobs and businesses?
5. The narrator from the show talks too much. He also says that everyone loves something, when it's not even true.
6. The voice acting is awful, and Peppa's voice is so annoying, it's like her voice actress has a sore throat.
7. The pigs in this show look like willies, they walk in a weird way, everyone has the same face as Peppa, and they are all facing sideways.

This show is horrible. Thank the lord they're not making anymore episodes.

Bad animation, the brat little pig has no morals and is a bad influence on kids, and the narrator thinks that the kids are brain dead - bjinmaro64

5 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.

This show is still stupid with all these monsters running around and dj lance rock screams too much.

It's just a bunch of overweight monsters running around like pro dance wannabes (I think DJ Lance is more autistic than any other person).

A bunch of stupid people in ugly monster and robot costumes and a stupid old guy in a wig.

HUH? This show is not racist it was actually made because it was made for all of the creative five year olds I LOVED THIS SHOW when I was younger some episode could be better yes but for the most part it was basically a perfect dreamland for five year olds but I still like it today

6 Mike the Knight

Mike is selfish, bossy, and he whines all the time.

The animation is creepy and mike is a winey 5 year old or whatever who always wants his way in any situation! Kids learn nothing from this show except if you leave your smelly pie outside to long Vikings will come to eat it and you'll have to save the village because of it! In a bad situation mike listens to non of his friend's suggestions and ends up making a really stupid one. THIS SHOW IS DUMBASS!

7 Paw Patrol Paw Patrol PAW Patrol is an Canadian animated television series created by Keith Chapman. It is produced by Spin Master Entertainment with animation provided by Guru Studio. In Canada, the series is primarily broadcast on TVOKids, which first ran previews of the show in August 2013. The series first aired on Nickelodeon ...read more.

The main character in this show talks like a robot. Voice acting all around in this show is just terrible. They only episodes I've seen where they actually save/help people is the lighthouse episode and an episode where the mayor is trapped at sea (why the mayor was in a paddle boat alone and in the middle of the ocean is beyond me) Every other episode is a fake emergency just like Team Umizoomi. "Bunnies are eating my carrots Ryder, do you think the Paw Patrol could help? "

This is the ONLY show on nick jr. that is good, this is one of the good shows hence the other shows that have characters that run around like stupid idiots, like team umizoomi, like an Ice Cream Truck running late is NOT an emergency, but a lighthouse that got broke is an emergency, cause no one wants people to crash, and die a horrible death, 10/10, and NO grounding series out of it please, do it out of Milli, Geo, and Bot.

No. Blues clues and other old Nick Jr shows are good. This show is CRAP AND It's THE WORST! SHOW! EVER!

This is the worst show of all time the animation is disgusting the character development is crap none of the charters Ryder is a 1 dimensional kid with studied hair and Marshall is an ass the this show teaches no lessons what so ever the only thing it does is set good examples at times like helping people. This show should not existed

Coming from a male, this show is sexist. It only has one girl but six boys? If it was aimed for boys only, it would be fine, but it's for Both genders. They should have made the leader a girl. And the show is stupid too it's just for merchndise - Drawbox

8 Go, Diego, Go! Go, Diego, Go!

Shows claim they're educational. And then parents have to spend a long time explaining to their kids and getting them to understand, "No, you can't run around with tigers and befriend bears. No, yo can't touch that dog with rabies because it will try to kill you." And then the kid goes and does it anyway! Thanks Diego!

I HATE DIEGO! And his name should be stop dieggo stop!

I Made this list and I think some of these shows should be taken off the air!

Stop diego stop now! - bjinmaro64

9 Ni Hao, Kai-Lan

This stupid show is a rippoff of Dora, only Kai-Lan is Chinese. And the name is a ripoff of Hello Kitty. Who the hell cares that "Ni Hao" Means hello in chinese? Kids don't need to learn Chinese! In these times, kids should be learning Spanish, more people, (At least where I come from, ) are Mexican that chinese! In my lifetime I have personally known 2 chinese people. 2! Thank god this show was cancelled. At least, I think it was.

This is a stupid ripoff of Dora. And I agree with the person below me, who tf cares that ni hao means hello in chinese? Kids need to be learning Spanish these days!

Because of this show, my 2 year old greeted an Asian child by saying "ni hao! " today. He was not Chinese and I was embarrassed. It was almost as bad as when he called a large Hispanic woman Dora. No Hao Kai Lan seems to reinforce stereotypes which is racism, no? I think Nick Jr is making my son racist.

I do not even like this show at all! It's a ripoff of Dora, except it's in Chinese. Even though I am Half-Japanese, I do NOT need this disgrace of a show

The name also copied-off Hello Kitty which is far much worse about this abomination

Kai-Lan is really annoying and thinks she is better than everyone else when she really is not

Rintoo is a jerk, he doesn't care about anyone, but himself

Tolee is also a jerk. He refuses to share his stuffed-animal toy, Pandy. He only cares about that toy and himself

Hoho is the MOST annoying character in this show. He throws tantrums whenever things do not go his way
(Just like Caillou)

10 Blaze and the Monster Machines Blaze and the Monster Machines

When I first saw this show, my brain said, "Oh, my GOD! What is this!? "

I don't usually hate on kids shows, even though most of them honestly suck, but this show, this utter piece of glorified garbage, is worth hating.

The show is about an annoying kid named A.J. who drives a sentient monster truck named Blaze. For some reason, there is only 1 other human in the entire show, a mechanic named Gabby. Other than that, everyone else is a monster truck.

How weird is that?

A.J. is, well, actually useless to the show. He seemingly "drives" Blaze, but it has been shown that Blaze, and everyone else, can move on their own. So...plot twist?

The only other use he has is his Visor View, the use of a helmet he wears on his head. It's kind of like X-Ray glasses. It's actually pretty cool, but only used for stating the obvious. Like in that episode, "Fire and Rescue"

he shows us valves to stop broken yogurt pipes that are ...more

My little brother LOVES monster trucks. So you would expect he'd love this show. No he didn't. I showed him the episode when they all get dirty and the truck wash broke. About 2 minutes into the show he enjoyed it. Then he got up, grabbed the remote, and changed the channel. Also, why is an 8 year old KID driving a monster truck. It teaches kids that its OK to kill yourself. Nice job Nick Jr

If it's even considered possible for kids' shows, Blaze completely jumped the shark already. Yay for STEM concepts in cartoons but what happened to just good-ole Monster Truck racing? Now there are trucks that are bears & live in the woods? And a recent episode they play in a tree house? What?

Hi blaze my name is kaytlin Nicole adams and I wanted to tell you that I love your show and I think your show is awesome and I think that person I had just read just a few minutes ago said something really horrible about you and I wanted to make you feel better and I hope you are having a great time teaching your students about science technology engineering and math skills and your show gets a ten out of ten you that person that said something bad about the show stop making the teachers blaze and AJ fell bad they want to teach their students about science

The Newcomers

? Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

Not on Nick Jr. - Cartoonfan202

? Sunny Day

Boring, its equestria girls but WORSE - Nickjrhater

I was so excited for this series because the animation looked beautiful and it reminded me of one of my favorite childhood cartoons (Holly Hobbie) but...
-The CGI backgrounds are ABYSMAL
-Sunny is supposed to be 10 and she sounds like she's 16
-rocks is the stereotypical black girl and Blair has no personality like at all
-Too much filler
-How the heck does a 10 year old own a hair salon and drive a van?
-The girls look all fancy but the boys look bland.
-Sunny is a terrible singer and she uses autotune at one point
-Scratch the dog catcher is a ripoff of Milo from Milo Murphy's Law
-Sunny and her friends are kids, yet they are taller than Scratch, who is apparently supposed to be an adult. What?
-Doodles is the only good character.

2/5 (disappointing) - Cartoonfan202

The Contenders

11 The Backyardigans The Backyardigans The Backyardigans is a Canadian–American CGI-animated musical TV series created by Janice Burgess, It is a co-production of animation studio Nelvana and Nickelodeon Animation Studios.

A very good, educational show that ACTUALLY isn't annoying. I loved it as a five year old, and I still do.

I love that show! How CouLd you! FYI- this is number one on the top ten best nick jr shows!

I love this show so much but everyone says it is for babies!
Untrue! Babies are only infant-2 year old! If a baby watches this show at least a nine month old it is not going to understand what are the characters doing or saying! People who say it sucks this show is my favorite show in the whole wide world. Haters of backyardigans die now!

No way. this is hands down one of my favorite childrens shows. It doesn't force a dumb school lesson like umizumi and is imaginative!

12 Dora & Friends: Into the City

This isn't the worst show on Nick Jr, but it sure is the most disappointing. I thought that maybe because Dora is older, maybe she'd become less stupid. MAYBE she'd actually ask some questions that might stump kids a little. MAYBE she would ask kids math problems instead of asking where her friend who is right behind her is. So I was actually a little excited for this show, maybe it would be actually watchable.

And was I right?

Lol n0pe

"Dora and Friends: Into the City" was just as stupid as the original, if not stupider. Actually, this show is EVEN STUPIDER, because at least Dora was only a little kid in the original. In Dora and Friends, Dora is in at least FIFTH GRADE. I mean, she's not talking to squirrels and crap anymore, but she still needs help finding the mountain (which is right behind her). I mean, come on! The only kids her age that act like that irl have mental disabilities. And Map App, seriously? I don't think Dora has enough Brain Cells ...more - FlowerlilySundrops

Dora and friends is basically like dora the explorer. Brand new, but stupid. I can't believe dora is going to be OLDER than me!? She's going to be 10 in that show and I'm only 9. If I were a ninja, I would chop her head of with a knife. She is going to weigh less than she was in dora the explorer! I have not seen any of the episodes and I don't EVER want to. if I were a werewolf, I would bite all her body parts of. I have a feeling this show is going to be stupider than dora the explorer. And if I brought a cage of chickens, I would let them lose and make them cover her with feathers.

I think I know why this show was made. Because Dora the Explorer is getting canceled in January 2015 and the little kids that like Dora started crying and the parents got mad. So the parents told the creator that they want them to keep Dora the Explorer on the air, but the creator wouldn't do it. But the creator said that he would create this show. And the kids got happy again. Good thing I will still be older than Dora. She will be 10 and I'm 11. - EpicJake

This show needs to get cancelled

This show will make me blow up their clock

It's stupid and boring. The episodes are kinda predictable because it's always like, "We gotta get to chime time! " And so they do, but still, it's just SO BORING! And I agree with you. It drives me nuts!


I hate this show, I wish I could take their clock and burn it. - PBSDoink2002

14 Olivia

Children copy what they see and not what they are told. It is called modelling. Demonstrate positive behavior and children will copy it. If you demonstrate negative kids will copy. Demonstrating characters act negatively with out negative consequences you are promoting negative behavior.

That Ian guy and Francine are the two main antagonists of this show. And on each episode they try to be bullies. Hopefully they'll learn to be nice and become friends with Olivia. And for once they'll leave her alone.. And Ian become a strong brother to her or something.

While it is better than Peppa Pig, this show still has problems. Picture Peppa but older, has 2 brothers, is an ass to her brother and others, and is so spoiled (Even more than Francine the rich kid). Olivia is a terrible role model due to that she treats others like garbage. The animation looks sloppy and looks like someone tried to make 3D objects on an IPad drawing app. As for the plots, they're dumb and predictable.

This show was my childhood! - mayamanga

Aladdin in modern times but have 2 female and retarded versions of Genie. You get Shimmer and Shine.

Shimmer and Shine is way boring even though Dora is worse

If I were you, I wouldn't watch season 2. They changed it into a weird cgi format. Why couldn't they keep the format they already had.

This show is terrible, it ruined the way I see Aladdin. with season 2 they changed from Flash Animation Format(which was already terrible) to even worse CGI Format

18 Little Charmers

This show is a ripoff of Sailor Moon. Alexa's old time favorite show. And it's a tele version of sailor moon. Plus the theme song sucks. Nick jr what were you thinking!? Were you trying to ripoff sailor moon? Nick jr you should be ashamed of your self making this piece of crap.

This show is just too much problems. The reason why I say that because that girl Hazel doesn't listen to her parents at all.

I hate this annoying and too girly show. I can just imagine all of the really religious Christian and Muslim parents prohibiting their kids from watching sorcery and for once I agree with them.

I like little charmers

Now Nick Jr. thinks it's a good idea to air non-educational shows on their channel, especially ones that come from Nickelodeon. This show does not deserve to be on the channel because it doesn't teach anything and has mixed messages for kids. - Cartoonfan202

If they wanted to choose a non educational show, it should have been the loud house, not this - Nickjrhater

This show is annoying

This is one of my sister's favorite shows. She'll cry when she sees this - Officialpen

What! Oswald shouldn't be on here because he teaches you to always look both ways before crossing the street. - EpicJake

Despite is was not very long of a series, this was one of the best series on nick jr. - Connor360

This was a good show.

Why the hell is this show on here? This show was my childhood and I still kinda like it. Its way better than the crappy shows they air nowadays
