Top 10 Worst Preschool Shows from Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel

Here are some of the worst preschool shows from Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel. The ones from Disney Channel and Nickelodeon air on Disney Junior and Nick Jr., while the ones from Cartoon Network should consider airing on the nonexisting American Cartoonito channel.

The Top Ten

1 Little Einsteins Little Einsteins Little Einsteins is an American animated children's television series on Playhouse Disney. 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 more.

I can't believe I missed Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Fairly OddParents for this garbage. - kcianciulli

THIS is NOT Disney. In fact, ALL of Playhouse Disney is not Disney. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Trash. - Not_A_Weeaboo

2 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

It has by far the laziest animation and production values in any television shows, which comes from the character design, which is even worse. The way both of peppa's eyes are viewed from the side of her face and how the animators just flip the head model to make her turn around makes it look like peppa pig has four eyes, two on each side of her face. Her arms and legs are literally just sticks that are waved around. they are never fully animated. her limbs never even bend. the bodies of these characters are literally just ovals. I could make a better looking artstyle than this in google presentation. this is all before I talk about the general tone of the story. You may have missed this, but peppa pig, the character, cries and demands and always gets what she wants. This is a terrible thing to show to kids. I can't remember one episode where peppa is actually punished for behaving badly. This show also treats the audience (young children) like they're complete morons. Most of this ...more

The creator didn't even tried, this is just lazy - Myuuu

I hate this show too. Peppa Pig is an obnoxious little brat. She's always fat-shaming her dad. - regularponyfan09

How is this popular again? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

3 Big Bag Big Bag


Big Bag was my CHILDHOOD! I loved Big Bag. It was the only GOOD live-action show from Cartoon Network! This AND Small World were what made preschool shows fun for Cartoon Network!

It makes no sense for you to say that Big Bag is the only "good" live-action Cartoon Network show ever made. There is NO way Cartoon Network preschool would EVER be fun. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 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.

Beware of the live action movie of teenage Dora coming August 2, 2019

Television is for entertainment, not education.

This show is nonsense!

5 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 think the poster who called it a masterpiece confused it with a show with a similar name which had kids who are famous now.

You jackass, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was a masterpiece! It's way better than Teen Titans Go!

ARE YOU THAT HYPOCRITICAL?! Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is an INSULT to Mickey Mouse! If you love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, then you're not a true fan of Mickey Mouse. If you love Playhouse Disney, you are NO fan of Disney! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I don't find the 2000s that bad for Disney. I mean yes, they put out terrible stuff that decade like It's a Laugh, Miley Cyrus, and Jonas Brothers, but Disney at least put out some great stuff that time. But this show is one of the reasons why Playhouse Disney is LITERALLY the worst thing Disney has EVER done! Yes, even worse than Shnookums and Meat and Pickle and Peanut combined! SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy was absolutely right about this atrocity! Anyone who loves THIS show has ZERO respect for Mickey Mouse AND Disney!

And anyone who says things like this has zero respect for anyone who disagrees with them. - regularponyfan09

I don’t think it’s an insult but it could have been better and this was 1 of the shows I watched as a kid

6 Small World Small World

I am so sick and tired of people HATING on 1990s Cartoon Network preschool! The only time Cartoon Network preschool sucked was when Tickle U came out. I LOVE Small World just as much as Big Bag. What? Are you gonna call ME a hypocrite for liking this AND Big Bag, yet hate Tickle U? Big Bag and Tickle U did Cartoon Network preschool RIGHT! Tickle U did it wrong! Why can't people just learn to appreciate Big Bag and Small World for what it REALLY did for Cartoon Network?!

The 1990s Tickle U. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

7 Sofia the First Sofia the First Sofia the First is an American computer-animated television series that features a commoner joining the royal family as a princess.

Disgrace to Disney princesses. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Sophia the first and hopefully the last! - Myuuu

I agree with SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy! People won't learn to stop praising the show, and learn that Playhouse Disney/Disney Junior is NOT Disney! �" The2000sGeek

THIS SHOW IS AMAZING! You think Walt Disney would be offended by Playhouse Disney and Disney Junior? HA! Walt Disney would actually be AMAZED by Disney Junior! You're too much of a Benthelooney bot, that you don't even know the fact that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was SUPPOSED to be different from the original cartoons, yet think that Teen Titans Go! was SUPPOSED to be different from the original show. That is HYPOCRITICAL and STUPID!

8 Blue's Clues Blue's Clues Blue's Clues is an American children's television series that premiered on Nickelodeon in 1996. Producers Angela Santomero, Todd Kessler, and Traci Paige Johnson combined concepts from child development and early-childhood education with innovative animation and production techniques that helped their more.

Blues Clues is one of the best ones - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

Watch Ben Rants: Kids Shows, and you'll see WHY I put this show on the list. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

This show is torture, why is it getting a reboot? Don't get me started on Blue's Room! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

That show may be bad, and may not deserve the it's just for kids excuse, BUT BLUE'S CLUES IS EVEN WORSE! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Why is this here? - Not_A_Weeaboo

There is no way Blue's Clues would be ANY better than Dora the Explorer! I never liked Blue's Clues when I was younger, and I still hate it today! Who cares about Blue's Clues?! It's just Dora the Explorer of the 1990s. -The2000sGeek

9 Baby Looney Tunes Baby Looney Tunes

Insult to Looney Tunes, next to Loonatics: Unleashed! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

10 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 .

I actually remember when this show first started airing. I thought it was a fun enough distraction and killed time pretty well in between the shows that actually taught me things. Since I'm sure practically nobody here was even born before 2001 I am one of a few here who actually grew up with the first-run series and it was fine. Oh, and it's a BBC program so it probably shouldn't even qualify for this list. - BKAllmighty

It's a cute show about young aliens (young because there is baby siblings called the Tiddlytubbies in the reboot). Yeah the sun baby was odd. But also cute. The Teletubbies have adorable baby faces. If you want the show to be educational then it should be Teletubbies Everywhere the spin-off which had shorter episodes and two series.

Plus, Teletubbies didn't even air on Nick, CN, or Disney. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The Newcomers

? Rugrats Pre-School Daze

This is just AS bad as the original Rugrats. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The Contenders

11 Rugrats Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

I just found Rugrats way too flawless. It's one of the reasons why I preferred watching Nickelodeon over Cartoon Network.

Rugrats is awesome. - regularponyfan09

This feels more like a Nick Jr. show, since it's about babies, and yet it shouldn't even exist! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Benthelooney doesn't like this, but at least he said it in a mature way. - kcianciulli

12 Imagination Movers Imagination Movers
13 Backyardigans

This show sucks. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

14 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. It ran from May 25th, 2013 to July 29th, 2016.

Are you sure this is a show for preschoolers? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

No its not - 23windomt

15 Oobi Oobi

I actually heard this show slows kids' speech development. I can see why. - regularponyfan09

Whoever made this show should get kicked in the balls. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I miss this show - 23windomt

I don't. I'm glad Oobi is on this list. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

16 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 weird. And stupid. - regularponyfan09

Yo Gabba Gabba is basically Wonder Showzen, but for Nick Jr. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

17 Blue's Room Blue's Room

Am I the only one who actually LOVES Blue's Room? I don't care if it's nothing like Blue's Clues! I love seeing Blue and her new friends!

I KNEW there was a Blue's Clues "fan" who actually likes Blue's Room. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

@SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy Shut up, dumbass! This show just gets better with every episode. It's actually really fun to watch. I don't care if it has Blue talking. As long as it's a continuation of Blue's Clues, I wouldn't care if this is nothing like it. Blue's Room is way more preferable than Teen Titans Go! You seriously hate Blue's Clues and Blue's Room, and yet you love Rocko's Modern Life?! How much of a dumbass are you?! - Grojfan100.

It's just AS bad as Blue's Clues. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

18 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 .

It's just Dora the Explorer for boys. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

19 Maggie and the Ferocious Beast Maggie and the Ferocious Beast Maggie and the Ferocious Beast is a Canadian animated TV series created by Michael and Betty Paraskevas.

Beast isn't even a ferocious character here! They should've called this show "Maggie and the Nice Beast". - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

20 Pecola Pecola

That creepy as flip dance at the end during the end credits used to make me go coo coo.
