Top 10 Worst Nickelodeon Moves

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Cancellation of Rugrats

This was a classic for crying out loud, A CLASSIC! - Connor360

Rugrats got cancelled because of spongebob's fault - lincolnloudness

I like this show, but one episode had a bad ending, which made me like it less.

It had a good run. 1991-2004 is a pretty long run. - kcianciulli

22 Forgetting about the Mid and Late 2000s Cartoons
23 No longer rerunning older Nick cartoons on Nicktoons

I wanna see reruns of Danny Phantom, Invader Zim, Ren and Stimpy, and Rocko's Modern Life again!

They have the Splat on TeenNick, but there has to be more than just that. I hardly see any of the older shows playing (ex. Jimmy Neutron, Danny Phantom, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Avatar, etc.). When they do, it's usually at like 3 or 4 in the morning, and no one wakes up that early.

Rocko's mod life, danny phantom, invader zim, jimmy neutron etc they were pretty much the whole reason nick was awesome but the annoying thing is they never show reruns at all! They just replacing all the old shows with stupid, retarted new ones like Henry danger, thundermans, Henry danger, Nicky Ricky dicky and Dawn, haunted hathaways etc instead of rerunning the old awesome ones on nicktoons this is the 1# thing I hate about Nickelodeon. This is one of the worst choices nick has ever made!

They'd Rather Air Sitcoms About Bratty Teenagers. That is Why I watch Cartoon Network now. - kcianciulli

24 Getting Rid of Nick Jr.'s Beloved Mascot, Face

I loved when that came up on Nick Jr or Noggins not so good copy. It's a shame they took it away and it feels like Dora is they're new Mascot

25 Torturing Squidward

Squidward being tortured should've stayed mild and not become severe and the main thing for SpongeBob SquarePants to rely on. - nelsonerico6

They needs to make more episodes like Band Geeks, where Squidward finally gets his sweet victory. - Catacorn

I feel so bad for Squidward...

How is that Nickelodeon's fault? - kcianciulli

26 They added Alvin and the Chipmunks

Alvin and the Chipmunks is a popular franchise that has been going on for a long time, starting with the classic cartoons, then with the live action movies, and now this, but it's actually hard to tell whether Nick messed it up, other than make the chipmunks less furry, It started in cartoon style, then live action, and now CGI, but that doesn't matter so much because each version had a different variety in format, and the plot was low on all versions of the franchise, including this one, but what Nick did to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, That was a big setback on the TMNT classic, but Nick still needs to make something more original than incorporating movie franchises.

It would've been better if it was the 1990s-2000s style animation and not CGI. - Kid_ethinederland

I love Alvin and the chipmunks. It is pretty funny I love it

Even Nickelodeon hates it! - kcianciulli

27 Choosing Fanboy & Chum-Chum over Adventure Time

Oh really! Nick got an very nice offer and didn't take it. Adventure Time is a popular show on Cartoon Network and with Gumball makes Cartoon Network at least watchable. IT SAVED Cartoon Network from being trash loaded to the garbage dump. Nick though took Fan Trash and Chump Chump. That show sucks and that show was the ultimate Nickelodeon Downfall. Nick lost popularity by a lot. Nick, what happend to Old Fairly Odd Parents, Jimmy Neutron, and Doug, Rocko and Invader Zim. Just because some idiots say that's inappropriate doesn't mean you have to replace it with crap and now you gave your special oppurtunity to at least get a watchable show and just pissed it to Cartoon Network.

Nick is now like a dry tree, just barren, which used to flourish and all the birds and animals enjoyed it. Now it is dry, lonely and dull, it is gray with none of the beauty which used to make it enchanted. Now it is ignored by the animals, ignored forever, with no hope.

Which leads ...more

Nickelodeon, HOW DUMB CAN YOU BE?! I knew you were offered AT, but I didn't know that the reason you didn't air it was because you chose ' FANBOY AND CHUM CHUM over it. Adventure Time is one of the best shows ever, and it's certainly my favorite show ever. Now you are airing Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, and other sucky things? Adventure Time could've saved your channel, Nickelodeon, and you blew it!

This should be number one. Rejecting Adventure Time sent Nick back five years. Cartoon Network got the upper hand due to shows being attracted to it due to Adventure Time's popularity. Had Nickelodeon chosen Adventure Time, Regular Show, Gumball, and Steven Universe would all have been on the channel. 2010 is a year that will live in infamy for the channel. Nick's dead and Adventure Time's success killed it.

You know what, I'm glad they chose Fanboy. Not because I like that show (in fact, I find it rather annoying), but because (this being Nickelodeon, after all) Adventure Time would have:

- Been severely overhyped before premiere
- Treated well for a few weeks
- Then never be rerun and air at weird timeslots, with long hiatuses in-between
- Been renewed for a second season, which would then get cancelled and moved to Nicktoons almost immediately

ALL of these things happened to Fanboy and Chum Chum.

Say what you will about CN and how they treat their shows, but they're still better off than Nickelodeon and have been for more than 7 years. At least they have a tiny bit of variety and treat their shows somewhat well (unless they absolutely tank like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs did), unlike Nick.

28 Overdone Butt Jokes

Once Again, Nickelodeon has decided to do evil deeds, such as butt jokes on Sanjay & Craig, Marvin Marvin & Breadwinners, CURSE YOU Nickelodeon!

I hate all those disgusting weird animated shows they have on Nickelodeon and especially Cartoon Network these days.

Come on Nick, everyone knows Butt Jokes are disgusting and childish, not funny!

They did it with Power Rangers Dino Charge

29 Blaze and the Monster Machines Blaze and the Monster Machines

This show rips off Cars and the Dora franchise. - nelsonerico6

A rip off of Cars and All of the Dora shows, it's basically a horrible piece of crap, why would preschoolers like/watch this, it's so stupid and overrated.

This show is a rip off of Thomas and Friends as well as Dora the Explorer.

This show is on for like 3 hours a day it's so annoying, all I want is to watch sponge bob but now I can't because other shows are taking up space

30 Putting Live Action Shows on Nicktoons

Nicktoons was a great channel, but it ended up perverted just like Nickelodeon, and worse, it even aired some live action programming, This is NICKTOONS, and they disrespect their name? Cartoon Network did the same thing with their programming.

If they wanna keep doing that, then get rid of Nicktoons altogether! Either that or change the name of the channel to something else.

At least cn's live-action shows dind't last so long

Chris Chan is in Charge of Nicktoons Scheduling. - kcianciulli

31 SpongeBob Continuing After the Movie

Having Steven Hillenburg retiring was bad, but it has been reported that he will return this year, that will bring the old SpongeBob back to life.

I don't want SpongeBob to get cancelled. I want the episodes to get BETTER!

So what? They can do that if they want!

I hate the new season sponge bob more like Eugenie vs Sheldon (Mr. Krabs vs Plankton.) The jokes are dumb and it featured the worst episode, Spongebob vs the goo.

32 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2013 comedy animated series on Nickelodeon. It is the adventures of Baduce and Swaysway, two ducks that deliver bread.

Seriously, Nick, were you even trying with this show?

I know it's the worst

The only thing that's bad about it is all the butt jokes and horrible humor. If they got rid of all that, I would actually like the show.

I kinda like it - Tyler730

33 Putting Out Live-action Shows That Sucked So Much

Icarly didn't get CANCELLED it ended with a good seres finale: Carly moving to England with her dad

In my opinion, the live-action shows aren't as bad as the cartoons. But they still have very gross things in them, such as that one episode of Henry Danger where Piper eats hair soup, and that episode of Game Shakers where they show the insides of gross ear canals close up. Those moment just about made me want to vomit.

True Jackson, VP, iCarly, and Victorious sucked. I was just glad True Jackson, VP was cancelled in 2011, but now we had iCarly, Victorious, Fred: The Show, Big Time Rush, Supah Ninjas, Bucket & Skinner, and Marvin Marvin. I'm glad those show got cancelled.

Nearly all live shows sucked, but one turned the other way around, a special one that put a spell on you, Every Witch Way.

All sitcoms were awesome until after Sam & Cat. Game Shakers Hunter Street are the only exceptions to what we have now. Even Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn is ok. - Kid_ethinederland

34 The Cancellation of All Their 90s and Early 2000s Shows

This is already on the list.

If the shows from the 90's and early 2000's never ended got cancelled, then they would probably go downhill and lose their charm (like SpongeBob and the Simpsons did). - anonygirl

35 The Cancellation of Danny Phantom

Such genius.. Destroyed... and replaced with absolute TRASH! :(

This show was awesome why was it cancelled

I miss this show so much! :(

In my honest opinion, Danny Phantom was what Nickelodeon need to get back to the top back in the mid-2000s (When the channel started to deteriorate). This show was so popular among the Pre-Teenage-Teenage Demographic at the time. Danny Phantom was just entering its prime when Nickelodeon decided to cease production of the show. Then, Season 3 was completly rushed as well as Phantom Planet, the series finale. Danny Phantom had so much potential, but Nickelodeon didn't think so. - FlakyCuddles43

36 Looking for Shows Off the Internet

Same thing as importing YouTube. - nelsonerico6

This is where Fred the show came from, and also the worst nick show of all time, breadwinners.

37 Moving The Legend of Korra online

Putting The Legend of Korra online instead of playing it on Nickelodeon is a dumb thing for Nickelodeon to do, just by dropping ratings during the third season, how stupid of Nick, Korra got ruined.

Killing the series was the worst thing they did.

It is on nicktoons.

Legend of Korra sucks - mayamanga

38 Reviving Ren and Stimpy

That show is so inappropriate.

It was revived into the Adult Party Cartoon, which sucked and was horrible.

Adult Party Cartoon has nothing to do with Nickelodeon. - ad48

Adult Party Cartoon was horrible. I can't believe what I've just watched. - Powerfulgirl10

39 Nick 10 Studios

This has to be #1 or near the Invader Zim cancellation, all they did was interrupt the shows every 15 minutes with their crap and they dropped Nick's ratings by 30%, and that led to the end of kids television until Every Witch Way, which revived the network, but when that show ends or gets cancelled (if it does) Nick will go back down and keep going down till it's dead (especially after the SpongeBob SquarePants series finale). - nelsonerico6

Ugh... I couldn't STAND Nick 10 Studios! All they do is interrupt the shows with kids doing idiotic things. I will never forget the time when the Campfire Episode of SpongeBob was on and they interrupted RIGHT AS THE CAMPFIRE SONG CAME ON. When the Nick 10 Studios interruption was finally over, the song was over, which really ticked me off. But anyways, I'm SO glad that they cancelled it! But still, even with the cancellation of Nick 10 Studios, Nickelodeon is still going way downhill.

THE WORST THING EVER. They interrupt shows such as The Fairly Odd Parents and Spongebob Squarepants, and show an annoying video. I remember once I was watching band geeks, and they were going to sing sweet victory, but then nick studio 10 came on, and SOME PATHETIC VIDEO CAME ON. And when the episode came back, I missed 3/4th of sweet victory. luckily they cancelled nick studio 10, THANK YOU NICKELODEON, for doing something good for once. - Catacorn

40 Replacing Jimmy Neutron with Planet Sheen

When Planet Sheen got announced everyone got kinda exicted. But the results we got was horrible.
