Cartoons have entertained kids and adults alike for many years. No matter how silly, crude or downright violent the cartoon may be, you can always count on being drawn in by the characters and their adventures.
There are thousands of cartoons out there in this world, but some of them are just bad to the point where they make you cringe. These are not just your average badly-animated, juvenile cartoons either; these are some of the worst cartoons ever made.
To help you avoid wasting your time on these cartoons, we’ve compiled.
Top 10 List of Worst Cartoons Ever Created
1) Paddy The Pelican
Paddy the Pelican is a cartoon series from the early 1990s. It ran for three seasons on CBS and was created by writer Jay Tarses. The show follows Paddy, who is a pelican living in the city of New Orleans. He goes out with his friends to have some fun, but they always end up getting into trouble and having to be saved by Paddy’s mother at the last minute.
There are a lot of plots where they want to get candy or play jokes on people or animals and then it never works out in their favor because they’re just too gullible and innocent. They always think they’re going to win but then something bad always happens.
I watched this when I was little and every time they did one of those things, my grandma would say what’s he thinking? He’ll never beat his mother! And she was right every time. When I first watched this show I thought that he had no chance of winning but if anything these episodes would give me hope because it always turns out alright in the end!
2) Teen Titans Go!
This show was made for kids but it is the most cringeworthy cartoon in my opinion. It’s so bad, it’s not even funny. The jokes are repetitive and they really lack quality humor. All of the characters just bounce off each other with no real purpose or meaning to their conversations. It’s hard to watch because I feel like I’m wasting my time on a show that is neither entertaining nor informative. The only reason I watched more than ten episodes was because I found out that one of the writers, Michael Jelenic, also wrote for Batman: Brave and the Bold which was one of my favorite shows.
3) Bread Winners
The Bread Winners is a cartoon about a family who runs a bakery together. They have to deal with the ever-growing demands of their customers, and the children’s constant interruptions, not to mention the competitive world of baking.
In order to stay competitive in this industry, they need to sell their breads and pastries at very high prices. But how can they afford it? There’s only so much profit one can get out of selling breads at $5 apiece.
So, they decide to cut corners by using cheap ingredients such as milk powder instead of fresh milk and low-grade flour instead of high-quality flour. This way, they’re able to keep bread prices down and still maintain their profit margins.
However, this plan backfires when the bakers realize that their daughter was suffering from anemia because she consumed too many products containing milk powder! She needs real dairy or else her body won’t be able to produce red blood cells.
They then try all sorts of different approaches to fix the problem, including switching to organic eggs, but they fail. It seems that there’s no other choice but for them to stop cutting corners if they want their daughter to live on healthily and happily
4) Mega Babies
Mega Babies is an American animated TV show from the early 1990s created by Eddie Murphy and David Silverman. The series revolves around a group of babies who have superpowers, with their most notable abilities being to fly and shoot lasers out of their eyes.
With a run time of only 13 episodes, the show is notorious for its ridiculous premise, terrible animation and writing, as well as its stereotyping and appropriation of Japanese culture (the title sequence starts off with what can only be described as Engrish).
In spite of all this though, it has been called one of the best cartoons on Nickelodeon because it was so bad.
5) Allen Gregory
Allen Gregory is a spin-off of Family Guy. It follows the life of Allen, a highly intelligent 7 year old who was homeschooled and raised by his mother. The series is set in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Southern California. One scene shows him being welcomed to school by children with their parents applauding behind them.
They say Hi, Mr. Gregory! but instead of replying back like they wanted him to do, he replied with What? which has caused some controversy among people on social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook.
Although the show may be deemed offensive, it’s also considered an over-the-top satire. Due to its unexpected cancellation after only two seasons, there are only 20 episodes ever made.
6) Mr Pickles
This show is about an old man who lives in the country with his talking dog named Mr. Pickles. The old man has a hunchback and he’s bald, but with a white moustache. Mr Pickles is just like any other dog, except he can talk and walk upright on two legs. He likes to drink beer, ride horses and shoot guns. He wears cowboy boots with spurs on them and a cowboy hat.
In every episode, he finds himself getting into trouble with local yokels. It seems as if this cartoon was made by someone who was stuck living in the 1980s or maybe even the 1970s.
7) The Problem Solverz
The Problem Solverz is an American animated television series, which is aimed at pre-teen boys. It was created by Adam Peltzman and premiered on Nickelodeon on September 25, 2011. The Problem Solverz are a trio of teenage superheroes who work together to solve problems caused by the villains and other incidents in their town.
A few months after its premiere, it had an average viewership of 1.5 million viewers per episode. However, reviews from critics were mixed; some praised the show for its comedy while others criticized it for its simplicity and lack of originality.
On October 17, 2012, it was announced that The Problem Solverz would not be renewed for a second season due to low ratings. It aired a total of 26 episodes before being canceled on November 11, 2012.

They are in the B-team which is at the bottom of their team ranking and constantly fighting to get out from under their A-Team’s shadow.

He has to deal with everyday school drama and finding out how much he can be grown up for Craig’s sake. Also has friends like Howie, Ravi, Zummi, Gavin, and many more. There’s so much to talk about with this show so I’ll stop here.
10) Extreme Ghostbusters
Extreme Ghostbusters is an American animated television series created in 1997 by Rick Ungar and Bob Higgins. The series was based on the Extreme Ghostbusters comic book, which was published by NOW Comics under the Marvel imprint. It aired on Saturday mornings on ABC as part of the network’s block of children’s programming called Block Party. Also airs on Boomerang every Sunday morning at 6:00 AM EST.
