Worst Nick Jr. Shows

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.

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.

The only problem I have with this show is how slowly Dora talks. Other than that, I don't give a damn about it. - ItsPisces

2 Bubble Guppies Bubble Guppies

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.

I can say that show will be very entertaining for toddlers, but yes, the frequent songs and 'nitpicky silly things that don't make sense' might lose a little quality. Overall, I think it is not too bad.

More like Stupid Dummies! This show ripped off Spongebob Squarepants, one of my favorite shows. And it is the toddler version of Sponegbob Squarepants. Molly is a terrible singer. Gil is a scaredy cat. Coby cried over his missing trucks. Oona is a huge crybaby. The reason why Noni never smiles is because he was roasted in his childhood. And Deema, nobody cares about her. - Creterampage

3 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.

Omlga so much for mighty math powers I'm gonna take honors geometry and I don't need help and they need help counting to five.

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.

5 Mike the Knight Mike the Knight Mike the Knight is a Canadian/British/American animated television series created by Alexander Bar and written by Marc Seal.

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

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!

This show is pure crapola.Mike is a spoiled brat who makes fun of her sister,jumps to conclusions, is never right and Evie is brickhead who never gets her spells right.

6 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.

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

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

It’s a great show to watch when high

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 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

Hate That Show Cancel The Show Forever

Not bad, just suffers from the Team Unizoomi syndrome (Turning first world problems into high class emergencies) and is basically made to sell toys.

8 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 .

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!

This show claims to be "educational", but parents could have spent years trying to get the kids to understand that they cannot do things such as going close to animals like hippos, lions, tigers, bears, jaguars, and elephants. And they do it anyway. Way to go Diego. You just became the cause of a kid's death. - Creterampage

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

This show teaches you to interact with bears, rhinoceroses, elephants, tigers, zebras, jaguars, lions, and gnus. It also teaches you to make your camera talk and your backpack to transform. Idiotic show

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.

Instead this show teaches kids to speak chinese, it teaches kids to cry! - PBSDoink2002

10 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

Same thing with Dora the Explorer.

The Contenders

11 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?

I swear to Jesus lord this show is just so annoying, every time my little brother here’s the truck say “let’s blaze” he’s gonna repeat it, also this show teaches nothing. The only time I heard it actually teach something useful if your planning on driving is that if your car is at a bend like angle it will drive faster. And the character crusher is so unlucky to the point people just feel bad for the guy, blaze really needs to be better to crusher, because crusher just wants to win, but instead blaze is there to ruin it all, it is just unfair. this show has literally not meant to be for children. The only type of children that should watch it should probably be 5 - 7 because I don’t understand why an 8 year old would like such a juvenile boring overrated opinion type of show in the first place, the kid who drives blaze really needs to know that crusher has feelings and that he should really let him win something for once. Also I’m actually glad crusher has that pickle ...more

12 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!

Guys, what's with the hate for this show? Just because it's for a younger audience doesn't mean that you have to be so hurt about it. - ItsPisces

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!

The ratings are 2.7/10

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

16 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.

I loved the books as a child, but this just gives me nightmares. - 445956

Worst show ever on Nick JR. No educational value at all for children. Music is not calm or good, very annoying music. I see no good values for children with this cartoon. Nick JR should not have this on their show. When this show comes on my kids get really upset and we have to change the channel until it is over.

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

This show is annoying

The characters have bad names. One character is named after the letter g. Who would name their child "g? " Just...what? - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

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
