What's the worst cartoon ever made in your opinion?
This. It's just pointless potty humor with shitty guest stars like Sarah Silverman and Aziz Ansari.
Always this one, go look for it on youtube if you want to inflict this horror on yourself
I was actually watching the first episode of Johnny test with my little sister a few days ago. She didn't believe me that the show is actually from the early 2000's. And yeah, back when it was actually drawn it was a passable children's cartoon. Shame it was resurrected and repurposed to what we have today.
I'll one-up you: Crusader Rabbit. Paddy at least had an unintentionally hilarious theme song, but I'm a sucker for stupid music.
S1 had squash-and-stretch. Cookie Jar Media then squandered the show and made Johnny one of the flattest characters of his time.
Calling a TV show a "shared idea" as an insult is a tactic used by spastics who can't live with themselves if something they like has a fanbase of more than two people. As soon as something is moderately popular, it is immediately overrated.
>They named a character after Tex Avery so they could use that name
But he's great in Master of None.
JT may have been a terrible plague on CN for years but the first season that aired on Kids WB wasn't really all that bad especially considering it ran in a block with Mucha Lucha, Pokemon, and Yugioh.
The only thing TD is credited with is the awful flanderization done to the original cast in its later seasons. Total Drama Island was an amazing season, claiming it is the worst gives this horrendous pile of dogshit >>79743129
way too much. Allen Gregory is probably objectively the worst besides some failed pilot like Bubsy.
>pre-empting someone's point invalidates them
While its not the worst I've seen, Steven Universe lacks humor, is full of cringey themes, has more ugly characters than nicely designed ones, and appeals to the lowest common internet denominator with forced anime and SJW pandering.
Not the worst, but certainly among the most shamefully overrated and obnoxious.
>mfw I found out the guy behind that made Swat Kats
This piece of shit. It aired when Street Fighter II V finished and boy oh boy it suffered by comparison. ¿The worst part? Every dumbass in my classroom tought it was BETTER than the anime. "But man, they look just like in the game, and their moves are the same, and Guile screams Sonic Boom when he does his power, and they look just like in the game!"
OP, I just came here to say that you have shit taste.
What the fuck is up with tweens/tween animation and Canada?
Did the success from Ed Edd & Eddy show them nothing, or is the budget to high for them?
So is anyone going to post Gen Zed and derail the thread?
I consider Mega Babies, Super Duper Sumos, and Butt Ugly Martians as the unholy trinity of our time, although the 70's produced so much garbage I'm sure there's something worse.
Speaking of which, while the show itself wasn't inherently bad, the original Scooby Doo was probably the single show with the biggest negative influence in the history of animation.
It basically opened up the floodgates to cheap, mass-produced animation that was so common in the very late-60's through to the early 80's. It was literally made to be as inoffensive as possible, in response to complaints of violence in superhero shows at the time, and was such a big hit that EVERYONE started copying the formula, even Hanna-Barbera itself. This effectively started an arms race to the bottom, to see who could produce the cheapest, blandest, most profitable cartoon as fast as possible. There was suddenly a massive flood of really shitty children's programming, which is widely regarded as the source of the whole "animation is for kids only" thing to this day.
Forgot to add, the push for cheapness was also largely pushed by the poor state of the economy through the late-60's to early-80's. In fact animation quality seems to follow economic trends pretty closely if you think about it.
And laugh tracks in animation. Scooby Doo was alright by itself but I hope the bastard who thought up putting a laugh-track in burns in Hell for all eternity.
>The Bubsy Pilot
Not the guy but I can explain. During the late 50's and early 60's animation transitioned from theatrical shorts to television. The first crop of shows, while having shoestring budgets, still managed to make good use of animation principles from the 20's-40's. I'm talking about the original Jay Ward stuff, the TV Terrytoons, the first wave of HB, and Beany and Cecil. However, once HB had competition from Nelvana in the late 60's they stopped caring about the quality in order to compete. Scooby Doo was one of the first shows to be of worse quality, and unfortunately spawned it's own genre which plagued 70's Saturday Morning stuff.
TLDR: It was the first TV animated show to literally drop all standards of animation quality
There was a point that whenever a network cancelled a Hanna Barbera cartoon they got a new cartoon... from Hanna Barbera. They had almost no competition and no reason to improve.
I really fucking hate that show. I've only watched a handful of episodes, but all of them were equally horrible. Why is it that every character just flat out sucks? They're all narcissistic, mean natured, and generally obnoxious, why?
god this. I can't fucking stand laugh tracks. It totally ruins anything I try to watch no matter how good it is.
I've been watching some Mr. Bean sketches on youtube and no matter how funny or unfunny the stuff he does is, every time Rowan Atkinson so much as exhales the "audience" chimps the fuck out and it ruins it.
Like look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS1ePEZZCDY
He doesn't even do anything in the first 15 seconds and by that point the "audience" has already laughed twice.
Anything that was on the Annotated Series counts, really. But Darkstalkers has failed to realize that the real monster is and always will be man:
The New Adventures of He-Man.
I grabbed a torrent of it a long time ago and could never watch past the first couple minutes after the intro. It diverges so much from the source material [not to mention the half-assed plot device] that only a couple names are what's left of Filmation's series.
It lost the charm of the original show and gained one that could be called 90s style. Might even be one of the first series to use that style.
I know /co/mblr loves this show, but it's so offputting I have to post it
stop, I'm coming back from all the "neo/v/" shitposting.
I don't give a fuck about memenuniverse, just tired of asspies spamming buzzwords.
atleast you didn't say salty.
I watched the first episode of this and wanted to vomit. It was just terrible and the jokes were really half-assed. Like they tried going for deadpan humor but ended up just stating offensive things like fact.
I thought they were going for
>Look how cutting edge and liberal we are
>Not edgy enough for you, have some brickleberry type humor
>Kids acting like adults, isn't that funny like Stewie from The Family Dad Show?
>People can't have their own opinions about cartoons in a thread about poorly made cartoons.
Unfortunately not, I have a solid knowledge base of this stuff because I've gone hell out of my way to learn it. There's no one true animation history book, because no one thought that 60-70 years later this kinda thing would be important. Heck, even the accounts published by Disney are fudged to make them look like saints, when their bullshit ways forced some of the better draftsmen out of the company Bill Tytla and Grim Natwick come to mind but theres others too.
>Disliking a shitty cartoon means liking MrEnter.
Fuck off faggot.
Annoying Orange, no competition. Johnny Test in the early years was okay and even after it went sour it had its occasional moment of quality. But Annoying Orange was just bad. With no redeeming qualities.
If you want a "good history" and not a super-broad overview, it's gonna be a long journey of research.
There are lots of helpful books out there. It'd be hard to tell you a place to start, but no single book can tell the entire story (just like the history of any field), so I'd recommend picking any specific topic you like (studio, director, decade, whatever) and just jumping in with some books on that subject.
In American animation, the influential people tended to impact each other a lot, so you'll find some overlap that connects different studios, people, etc in any given book. But if you want to learn about animation from all around the world, that'll take much more time & effort to get the full picture.
Da Boom Crew and Mega Babies look annoying, but the other two look downright aggressively mediocre and boring, and I think that's the worst thing a cartoon can be.
Sure, stuff like Alan Gregory is painfully bad, but at least it makes you FEEL something, even if it just makes you irritated or disgusted. It impacts you in some way. If a show has no impact, if it's as bland as staring at a blank wall, then it's extra horrible.
"The Brothers Flub" is another bit of pure mediocrity ilike that:
Yeah, like any other cartoon it started slowly and got really good with each episode, Louise episodes are the best but I'm biased because I really like Kristen Schaal.
Besides that the kids focused episodes are really great, Work Hard or Die Trying Girl was amazing.
I figure Poochini belongs to that category. No wonder it's obscure. It doesn't stand out in any way. For some reason it seems to have been more popular in Latin America.
As a Chilean I can confirm that last statement, it was mainly because it aired in the time where the evening TV had only cartoons and kids, like me at the time, only would watch that, then it got pushed away with reality show garbage and shit like pic related
If we count 3D, Buddy G is pretty fucking terrible. It has an agenda, and has some of the most uncanny animation I've ever seen.
2D I'd say Problem Solvers
I know this is silly but that promo picture looks beyond visually appealing. It focuses on shapes like a lot of thicker line-art shows, but has thin black lines which I always love.
The first one is extremely boring and the animation is meh.
Second one animation is a little better, but the writing isn't interesting/
The third one looks like garbage.
Fourth one is certainly outdated. The art isn't bad, but I could tell that all the jokes must be outdated.
>wants to be progressive
>nontraditional asian with highlights
I mean I get the humor is bad, but how is making puns of band names bearable as actual dialog? That's shitposting on here.
What's the matter with Brickleberry ? because I guess if you hate that, you probably hate shows like Drawn Together ? It's the same humor ? Or this is more Family Guy tier ? I never watch Brickleberry.
>oh boy I can't wait to find out about some really awful cartoons like johnny test
>it's just people bitching about cartoons they don't like
can't we just have a thread about garbage like butt-ugly martians and other shit?
So, from someone who has only ever seen like 3 minutes of it what made it so awful? It seemed a pretty generic "the dog talk and the sisters are rule63 Dexter, they get into shenanigans". Maybe not the most brilliant of premises, but I see that spammed almost everytime someone mention a bad cartoon.
>Being trans shows huge strength of mind
was that the one with fabulous skeletor
i fucking loved fabulous skeletor
