Worst Shows On PBS Kids


The Contenders: Page 3

This has got to be the most boring kids show ever made. It has no real background music, the theme song just repeats the name of the show over and over in different tones while lame music plays in the background, and there are no other characters other than unrealistic characters like talking objects or talking animals or background characters. - SheepBuggy

42 Ready Jet Go Ready Jet Go Ready Jet Go! is a CGI animated television series created by Craig Bartlett which premiered in the United States as part of the PBS Kids block on February 15, 2016 . The series is produced by Wind Dancer Films and Snee Oosh, Inc. in cooperation with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The show is aimed ...read more.

This show uses some of the best of everything that an animated prime time preschool show has, good quality, no laugh track, real plot, special effects that are not awful, real comedy, no rip offs, action, good drama, sometimes mystery, and finally, good lessons, yet the characters are amazing in both looks, words and actions, which is everything we need in an animated show, the acting is good when you compare the latest episodes to the others as well as some of the other shows, yet they are trained actors, if you research the actors, then you'll see, also PBS Kids has the rights to adapt ideas into their own shows, it's been a trend in many ages in culture, and the part where Jet comes to Earth with his parents is only a small fraction of the show, there's much more to the show than just those parts, and the friendship scenes are true friendship peak scenes, yet the morals are good and teach you important things in life, saying that looks don't always matter and that families are also ...more

It's actually really good, it's unlike the crappy shows which the other ones are, Curious George used to be good until 2004, Wordworld used to be good until 2009, Ready Jet Go is better than any show on PBS Kids starting from 2006 to the present not counting the shows that were good before going downhill, the only good shows after 2006 before Ready Jet Go were Wild kratts and Odd Squad but they are screwed by the channel, so there wasn't anything good on until Ready Jet Go, Also Disney Junior has really bad shows nowadays except for Sofia the First and Elena of Avalor (which isn't as good as Sofia the First, even though it was made by the same creator, but better than Phineas & Ferb and the live-action teenage sitcoms of that channel), There's a real plot, it has good dialogue, You realize that the actors/actresses spent years and years training in acting, unlike most other PBS Kids & Disney Junior shows, which only have actors/actresses that only trained for about 1 week or two, yet ...more

At least Ready Jet Go isn't in the Top Ten, Seriously, it is not a bad show like some of you guys say, it getting better and anyone who doesn't care about that needs to have a check up, I know the difference between healthy & ill and I'm healthy and I also know the difference between this show and the others, there's a plot that doesn't happen in the other shows, it's a good and original plot, yet it's also not a rip off of any show like some might say, but it does adapt from an idea Craig Bartlett had a long while back, and the acting is getting better, it starts out as a fail in the first episode, but the next episodes have better acting, a process that doesn't happen in other shows, yet the quality and lighting is different in a good way, it's very high quality, high definitely and high res, which is what ultra high resolution looks like, making the other shows look low resolution, the image quality isn't really higher, it's an optical illusion caused by the unusually high camera ...more

It's better than a lot of rubbish that PBS kids airs, but still, when you compare shows like this and Wild Kratts to Clifford, they aren't so good. - Drawbox

This should switch places with awesome Wild Kratts. I mean, the things every character does are so senseless! Like stinky, smelly stew curing a cold. And the voice of that idiot Trilby is so irritating, it's enough to break my ears. And there are no characters other than the puppies and their cat. And speaking about the cat, his laugh and the fact that he always talks about stinky fish is so annoying. Whenever, they show any living thing other than the puppies, it looks so pathetic, such as a snail in one episode. There is also NO location other than the clubhouse in the series. This is one of PBS, least known, yet annoying shows. What's worse, while being little known, as well as canceled, it still airs in reruns in NC, where I live. What an epic fail at another kiddie band.

This show was on a Spanish network and a ripoff of barney bear in the big blue house seas me street and those stupid puppets from the wiggles

Every character's voices is annoying, they do illogical things, everything about this show annoys me. It should change places with awesome Wild Kratts. It's one of the most annoying, yet least known shows on PBS kids. One of the worst kiddie bands.

I'm the person below the biggest paragraph and I now think it wasn't that bad, the cat is funny and I like how they perform for kids, and a few of the dogs are ok in personality. But it is annoying at times and yes they do illogical things.

46 Angelina Ballerina

There are various merchandise of the cartoon including a board game and several picture books published by Pleasant Company under license from BBC Worldwide and HiT Entertainment. The products, unlike the cartoon itself, are aimed towards preschoolers. - playstationfan66

Angelina Ballerina (Original) Was good, but the new one: Angelina Ballerina : The Next Steps. Has way too much pink and bad voice acting, and it doesn't seem like a kids show. It's constant drama and gossip, it seemed more like a teen comic show. - SheepBuggy

I hate this stupid mouse. Mice can't even dance

The adults act like children. Polly,I hate you the most! Die Polly. Vote to make this show #1. Let's make this #1!

50 Oh Noah

Stupid. Just plain stupid. I really miss Harry & Bianca from Cyberchase. Instead of hilarious grown-ups solving math (and sometimes messing up : p), some stupid kid who doesn't know spanish with his retarded mouse mess things up. Screw you, Noah and the creators.

This should be called oh no

Terrible animation

This show sucks

51 Dot and Dash

Weird mascots. I always thought Dots looks like Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls. Am I the only one who thinks that? - AnimeDrawer

They were originally good, then Dash faded away and Dot got children. - Nanis149

They were awesome, until Dash died and was replaced by two fools called Dee and Del. What kind of names are they, anyway?!?!

I miss Dash but why did they replace him with 2 idiots called Dee and Del

52 The Berenstain Bears

This show is great it taught me a lot of lessons when I was little I'm 12 now but I still love pbs

The Simpsons of Children's shows. Not that great, but better than most crap shows on here.

It's not bad, it's more realistic and it teaches little kids good things. I like it but it don't come on pbs, not for a good while now.

I never knew it was a show, It's just a series of books at my school library. - SheepBuggy

57 Doc Mcstuffins Doc Mcstuffins Doc McStuffins is an American-Irish animated children's television series produced by Brown Bag Films.

Get mad at me, and dislike my comment all you want, But I'm sick of all these Toy Story rip-offs! I don't care if you think it's a good show, It's really unrealistic! Toys can't magically come to life and talk to you, and then turn back to objects when your parents go near them. I get it's a kids show and animals can talk and stuff, but the thing is these aren't animals. They're toys. Toys don't have a life and they are completely made of fabric and polyester. At least talking animals made sense since they have lives, and some like parrots and cats can be tamed to talk. - SheepBuggy

Its fine but really annoying and since when do toys get sick.

This is a Disney Junior Show, not a PBS Kids one

People don't know their channels

58 Dot Dee and Del

They are worse than the old version.

Dot and Dash were good but Dee and Del are jerks.

They are the worst. The old ones were wayy better than the new ones.

59 It's a Big Big World

Um... well this show scared the living heck out of me when I was like 4 or 5. Now it's okay.

60 Dirtgirlworld Dirtgirlworld

What even is this? - bobcards

And it still does

This animation used to creep me out.

This can be ugly, but repeating the word "ooh" 150 times won't make it a disgusting show-trollsfan536
