    The cartoon I've always recalled the least fondly from my childhood would be the Littlest Pet Shop spin-off cartoon from the mid-90s. As a kid, I was an avid LPS collector, so I routinely forced myself to watch it, but, try as I might, I could never force myself to like it. It struck me as the work of a production team who were keen to emulate the high-engery formula of the "Steven Spielberg presents" cartoons of the day (Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs), but didn't understand it, and thought they could get the job done just by being as noisy and chaotic as possible. The resulting cartoon was an utter mess - annoying at the best of times, and horribly, horribly confusing at the worst.

    Then there's The Kwicky Koala Show, notable mainly for being one of the last projects that Tex Avery worked upon (and a bit of a bum note to end his career on, quite frankly). Generally speaking, cartoons from the early 80s aren't renowned for their high concepts or production values, but a lot of them still manage to be entertaining in a "so bad it's good" kind of way. Kwicky, on the other hand, was both bad and mind-numbingly dull. The titular character was a Droopy-esque koala whose big gimmick was that he could evade predators (more specifically, a hopelessly neurotic wolf) by moving at lightning speed - thanks to the cut-price animation techniques however, what he'd actually do was disappear in frames of animation and then reappear elsewhere in the scene. And that was about it. There was also a supporting segment about a lynx who made the most appalling wisecracks and had a tendency to wiggle his eyebrows provocatively at the camera, but it was still infinitely more entertaining than anything Kwicky himself had to offer.

    Finally, I'm compelled to give (dis)honorable mention to Disney's House of Mouse...it wasn't godawful exactly, but it was a terrible waste of a good idea.

    All the generations of My Little Pony. I hated the old show's animation, and although the new seasons have a new look, I still don't like it. It's also become WAAAAAAAAAY too overrated.
    FiM over the old any day.

    Most of the recent American cartoons are doing a poor job... some of them are too stupid to watch and have the worst sense of humor. If I had to pick a few, I'd say Fairly Oddparents, Johnny Test, and Spongebob.

    The older cartoons are better. The Flintstones and the Jetsons were epic. I wish loads more were like these. Heck, even the Loony Tunes are better. No matter how many times the characters get hit by anvils, it's laughable in a classical way.

    Another cartoon I probably should've mentioned was Yo Yogi! This attempt to make the classic Hanna-Barbera characters more relevant to the youth of the early 90s by restyling them as mallrats and having them spout annoying buzz-words is about as cynicism-inspiring as HB gets, and truly that's saying something.

    I never knew there was a Littlest Pet Shop cartoon in the 90's, I know (or at least I heard) The Hub is making a new LPS cartoon to air next year, but I never knew there already was one.

    Speaking of Tex Avery, there was a (now forgotten) cartoon series in the 90's called "The Wacky World of Tex Avery", which TV Tropes easily described as "Coming to redefine the term 'In Name Only'", it starred a rowdy cowboy named Tex Avery, allowing them get away with the name without getting in trouble with the suits, and the entire cast was claimed to be done in the style of Tex Avery's works, despite the show having none of Avery's creations such as Droopy Dog, George and Junior, and Screwball Squirrel.

    I've heard about that show, they said it was so horrible, that asides from two TV specials and the recent live action movie, Hanna-Barbera never made another show with Yogi Bear or any of his friends again, this would ultimately lead to the companies fall several years later

    The Looney Tunes Show, the 2011 version, I've seen it and it was horrible. Bad art, bad portrayal of some characters, and just over all bad in my opinion. I grew up watching the original stuff and it doesn't even come close in comparison

    You know, once I had the incredible idea to make a version of Dora the Explorer...starring Boris Johnson, called (prepare yourself!) Boris the Explorer! Map was David Cameron and Backpack was Nick Clegg. It was later changed to the HobNob Goblin for copyright reasons, and I'm still working on it. Oh, by the way, the worst cartoon I've seen is a hellish and disturbing cartoon I only saw once, called Almost Naked Animals. Like I said, disturbing. Blech. Another cartoon from the depths of hell is Rated A for Awesome. Contradicts its name.

    Johnny Test, how is that junk still on the air and still successful is beyond me. Also I've never heard of Fanboy and ChumChum or Problem Solverz but judging by videos on Youtube, they look awful and I'm not gonna even bother with them.

    I agree. I've only seen it once, two years ago. Ugh. I felt rather sick seeing that hell-spawn.

    Caillou is pretty awful. It's about an annoying little bald kid.

    This sums up the entire show:

    I finally watched Back at the Barnyard. It was so stupid. I'm disturbed by the fact that there are male cows (complete with udders) on the show. Anyone who knows a thing about farm animals should know that udders are the equivalent of a woman's breasts, and that a "male cow" is a bull. Why not draw a man with big breasts while you're at it?

    Also terrible was Allen Gregory - that one cartoon that Jonah Hill made. Luckily they cancelled it after a few episodes.

    They actually greenlighted a Mortal Kombat cartoon in the 90s!
    Helga: Look, Phoebe you gotta snap out of this. I mean, criminy, it's not like it's the first time you ever farted. Heck, when you sleepover you do it all the time. You rip 'em all night long, they stink to high heaven. It's all I can do to keep from passing out.
    Phoebe: Just get out.

    I remember there was this really lame Sonic cartoon called Sonic Underground, iirc he had a brother and a sister and they had to find their lost mother, and they were in a band. Also they used their instruments as weapons too.

    "Captain Planet, he's a hero/ He's gonna take your stomach to zero"

    I may be right-wing, but I still have environmentalist sympathies. But when I watch Captain Planet, I get the sudden urge to burn down the rainforests and blast crude oil at toothpaste mascots because he's seriously that annoying.

    I also dislike MLP: FiM, but that's more because of the fan base. The show itself isn't terrible, it's just that the bronies are insufferable (especially my cousins, one of whom was sure that if you watched a couple of episodes of FiM, you'd love it. Trouble is, that didn't work on me and some of my other cousins).
