Worst TV Shows That Rip-Off Other Shows

Keep in mind when voting or remixing: the shows that they are ripping off don't have to be good shows. Like for example Sanjay and Craig rips off Fanboy and Chum Chum, Breadwinners rips off Sanjay and Craig, Stone Quackers rips off Breadwinners, etc. Also, some shows (such as Sanjay and Craig) can be rip-offs of multiple shows simultaneously.

The Top Ten

1 Johnny Test (Dexter's Laboratory)

I Dislike JT myself but the only thing Johnny Test ripps off is American Idiot (The theme is a COMPLETE ripoff of American Idiot by Green Day) and what similarities these both shows has
JT:
Johnny is an evil spoiled brat who only cares about himself and exploits his sister's equipment for his own pleasure
The Geniuses are his SISTERS not him
Most episodes goes like this:
Johnny gets into trouble,he asks his sisters to help him, the sisters refuse, he makes them help him, he does something terrible then he gets away with it.
Dexter's laboratory:
Dexter is a kid with good heart who is always dependent on science.
His Older sister has an IQ bellow average but still has a good heart.
Most episodes goes like this
Dexter makes a new invention, Dee Dee asks him what a button does, she blows stuff up, Dexter fixes the thing that dee dee did and saved the day.
In conclusion the amount of similarities of these shows is 0 These shows have no similarities AT ALL ...more - Aguythatpeopleignores

2 Oggy and the Cockroaches (Tom and Jerry) Oggy and the Cockroaches (Tom and Jerry) Oggy and the Cockroaches is a French animated comedy series produced by Xilam and Gaumont Film Company.

Excuse me! - Sunwhisker

3 Sanjay and Craig (Regular Show, Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants, Fanboy and Chum Chum, CatDog)

Because copying Fanboy and Chum Chum, one of the worst cartoons of all time, is a great idea. - Martinglez

Shouldn't invader zim be added to this list? Since the backgrounds tend to be dirty just like the backgrounds in Invader Zim as well as the gross out humor..

Correction Captain's not a rip off of Sanjay and Craig Adventure Time and Regular Show is SpongeBob SquarePants is also not a rip-off

ugh

4 All That (Saturday Night Live)

But All That is good. - 445956

5 The Flintstones (The Honeymooners)

Take The Flintstones Out of That List

Flintstones are better than honeymooners đŸ˜¥

6 As Told by Ginger (Arthur) As Told by Ginger (Arthur) As Told by Ginger is an American animated television series aimed at teenagers, produced by Klasky-Csupo and aired on Nickelodeon.

Both shows are awesome - ConorDooley

7 Glasshouse (Big Brother)
8 Jessie (The Nanny)

Jessie is a horrible attempt at making a kids version of The Nanny. - 445956

9 Henry Danger (The Thundermans) Henry Danger (The Thundermans) Henry Danger is an American superhero sitcom television series airing on Nickelodeon. The series was created by Dan Schneider and Dana Olsen. The series revolves around a 13-year-old boy who becomes the sidekick of a local superhero. On March 2, 2017, Nickelodeon announced that a new animated series, ...read more.

More like Batman than The Thundermans, but without the crime fighting.

It's weird that Nick made both of these shows around the same time! They're almost exactly the same! - funnyuser

They both look the same - FerrariDude64

10 Robot and Monster (Fanboy and Chum Chum, SpongeBob SquarePants)

The Contenders

11 Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Revolutionary Girl Utena) Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Revolutionary Girl Utena) Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Shaft and Aniplex, directed by Akiyuki Shinbo, written by Gen Urobuchi, music by Yuki Kajiura, opening sang by ClariS, ending by Kalafina (sometimes by the seiyuus) and original characters by Ume Aoki. It also has 3 movies, ...read more.
12 Miracle Star (Knockoff of The Amazing World of Gumball)

How is this 14?!
Good thing it got cancelled.

Typical China...

Why is this at #121? It LITERALLY copies some scenes from the show, and just replaces them with other characters.
There was an episode of TAWOG that dealt with this called "The Copycats". I recommend you watch it. - Drewman1211

13 Tobot (Transformers)
14 Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures (Drake & Josh)
15 Steven Universe (Lolirock, Adventure Time, Sailor Moon)

It didn't rip off any of these. I like Adventure Time somewhat, I like Sailor Moon like a fan, but I hate LoliRock.

16 Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir (HeartCatch Precure)
17 AwesomenessTV (All That, So Random!, MAD, Incredible Crew) AwesomenessTV (All That, So Random!, MAD, Incredible Crew)

I've never seen Awesomeness T.V.. Does it suck? - RockFashionista

18 Marvin Marvin (Mork and Mindy, ALF, Invader Zim)

I am so sorry for defending this show. It scared me. It freaks me out now.

Aliens aren't copyrighted. - RalphBob

19 Stuck in the Middle (The Loud House)

Stuck in the Middle was announced by Disney in 2016. The Loud House was announced by Nickelodeon in 2014. Enough said.

TLH was made in 2013, and this came out the same time as TLH, So It's a ripoff.

20 Nina Needs to Go! (Sanjay and Craig, Fanboy and Chum Chum, The Mighty B!, Breadwinners)

No, that is original. Too original.

21 Breadwinners (Regular Show, Sanjay and Craig, SpongeBob SquarePants) Breadwinners (Regular Show, Sanjay and Craig, SpongeBob SquarePants) Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

The plots and episode names rip off those of SpongeBob SquarePants, the show sucks.

Just more plain butt humor.

You forgot The Brother's Flub and Rocket Monkeys

It is a mix of Sanjay and Craig and Gumball. - 445956

22 So Random! (All That, MAD)

Don't forget The Amanda Show.

A rip off of a rip off - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

23 Every Witch Way (Wizards of Waverly Place) Every Witch Way (Wizards of Waverly Place) Every Witch Way is an American telenovela-formatted teen sitcom that originally aired on Nickelodeon from January 1, 2014, to July 30, 2015. It is the American version of the Nickelodeon Latin American show Grachi.

Actually, it's not exactly a rip off of Wizards of Waverly Place, it's an American foreign adaptation of the Nickelodeon Latin American telenovela Grachi.

Yeah! - 445956

24 Cardfight Vanguard (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
25 MAD (All That)

I thought it was supposed to be a rip off of Robot Chicken (also, is it bad that I kinda love this show? ) - 445956

26 Incredible Crew (All That, So Random!, MAD)
27 Uncle Grandpa (SpongeBob SquarePants)
28 The Loud House (Stuck in the Middle) The Loud House (Stuck in the Middle) The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. ...read more.

What's the big deal of both of these shows being similar anyways? Large families aren't uncommon, and in some countries in Africa the average fertility rate is over 6.

They made some shorts of the loud house before stuck in the middle was made

Actually the loud house was made first whoever made this is really stupid

If the loud house copied stuck in the middle in that there is a Mormon-ish style family that constantly spews children then there is a Battle for Dream Island fan fiction where two of the characters have 10 kids, and it was made back in 2012.

29 Fish Hooks (SpongeBob SquarePants) Fish Hooks (SpongeBob SquarePants) Fish Hooks is an American animated television series created by Noah Z. Jones which originally aired on Disney Channel from September 3, 2010 to April 4, 2014. Twenty-one episodes were ordered for the first season.

I am sick to death of hearing this. Fish Hooks is not a ripoff of SpongeBob. I don't like Fish Hooks, but other than taking place underwater, they have nothing in common. Fish Hooks is about high school drama with fish, whereas SpongeBob is about two annoying sea creatures causing mischief wherever they go. - Garythesnail

Coconut Fred is more of a rip-off. Just because it takes place underwater doesn't mean it ripped off Spongebob. Since when is Spongebob going to school? But yeah, this show wasn't so good. - 445956

30 Wild Grinders (Rocket Power) Wild Grinders (Rocket Power) Wild Grinders is an American animated sitcom created by Rob Dyrdek for Nicktoons. It is based on the life of Dyrdek.

If you look closely, two of the characters look like Mario and Luigi close together.

31 Boohbah (Teletubbies)

Seriously? They were made by the same person, do some research! - 445956

Just because their made by the same person doesn't mean that It's not a ripoff - Discord1

32 Star vs. The Forces of Evil (Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, Sailor Moon)

It doesn't rip-off Randy Cunningham and was inspired by Sailor Moon. I swear, is this TheKirbyCreeper999? - 445956

Actually, LoliRock is a Rip Off from Sailor Moon. And a TERRIBLE one, too!

I think it doesn't rip off randy cunningham. It's miraculous lady bug that ripped off randy cunningham.
Plus the fact that svoe was inspired by sailor moon is amazing!
But I wish the show randy cunnigham was inspired by sailor moon,because both shows are kind of similair.

33 The X's (The Jetsons)
34 Yokai-Watch (Pokemon, Digimon)
35 The Thundermans (Wizards of Waverly Place, Lab Rats, Liv and Maddie, The Haunted Hathaways)

It is a rip-off on a movie, The Incredibles. - 445956

Call me crazy but u disagree with liv and Maddie and I feel like the characters rip of good luck Charlie phoebe - teddy max- gave billy-PJ Nora-Charlie

U was supposed to be *I gave was *gabe sorry

36 The Lion Guard (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Sonic Boom)

The Lion Guard is much better than those two pathetic excuses for shows, and I don't even like that show. - KennyRulz244444

TLG is not even a good show and the two that it ripped off of are better.

37 Harvey Beaks (Breadwinners, The Amazing World of Gumball)

How does it ripoff Breadwinners and the amazing world of Gumball - Discord1

Birds, the main characters are the same colors as GUmball, Darwin, and Anais - 445956

It is NOT a rip off of Gumball! That's like saying Jimmy Neutron is a ripoff of Dexter's Laboratory. - kcianciulli

38 Family Guy (The Simpsons) Family Guy (The Simpsons) Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.

It didn't rip-off any of them, and it is a great show. If anything, it is kind of similar to Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated, - 445956

I was kidding about the foster's home thing, I was stupid :>

You forgot that it ripoffs Foster's home in my opinion.

Adore this show and American Gothic from 1995

42 Make It Pop! (Victorious) Make It Pop! (Victorious) Make It Pop is a K-pop inspired Canadian–American musical comedy series in a telenovela-like format that currently airs on Nickelodeon in the United States and on YTV in Canada.

WORST. KOREAN. SHOW. EVER!

43 The Modifyers (Danger Mouse) The Modifyers (Danger Mouse)

Acually the show is pretty good so get it off!

44 Dog with a Blog (Scooby Doo, Good Luck Charlie, Johnny Test, Mister Ed)

I like this show, and if it was a rip off of Johnny Test, it would have monsters, scientists, aliens, farts, and super villains

No offense, but how does it rip off of Johnny test? - AnonymousChick

It rips off Martha Speaks the most - 445956

45 Stone Quackers (Breadwinners)

Lol this is on here twice because it is 100% true. - RalphBob

46 Full English (Family Guy)
47 BoBoiBoy (Ed, Edd n' Eddy)

Boboiboy is best why it is in 55 it should be in top 10 why it is not there because it aired this year it is young that's why you didn't repeat it you should repeat it everyone should watch it and vote it.

48 Sid The Science Kid (Bill Nye The Science Guy)
49 Ni Hao Kai Lan (Dora The Explorer)
50 Pickle and Peanut (Breadwinners and Regular Show)

If Breadwinners isn't bad enough, how about Disney Channel ripping it off. - 445956
