* '''''WesternAnimation/BolivarElHeroe''''' ("Bolívar the Hero"), a 2003 Colombian "animated" movie about the 19th century South American freedom fighter Simón Bolívar (who would most likely be spinning in his grave right now if Hugo Chavez hadn't had him exhumed), featuring barely animated, terribly drawn {{Animesque}} versions of Bolívar and his allies and enemies, UsefulNotes/MSPaint-worthy special effects, ridiculously bombastic acting, and generally pathetically low production "values". You can look at the thing yourself... or just [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0400244/usercomments look at the IMDb reviews.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxx7RTE39vA Look at the trailer here]].

* '''''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie''''' was a production doomed by its very [[AudienceAlienatingPremise concept]]: {{In a world}} inside a smartphone, where each emoji has its own specific role it can fill, one, Gene, has several, and feels constricted by his designated role of "meh." For this, he is cast out of Textopolis. In the meantime, the phone's owner, Alex, tries to woo his crush while beginning a new chapter of his life. When the "meh" emoji he's texted goes haywire, he sets out to factory-reset the phone. The story is [[ClicheStorm clichéd]], insultingly predictable, [[{{Anvilicious}} embarrassingly unsubtle]], and [[BrokenAesop self-contradictory]], obviously trying at points to will itself into being any one of several far more successful animated films made in the past four years. That's saying nothing about the rote, uninspired attempts at humor (many of which date the film right away) or the embarrassingly heavy-handed dialogue. Most of the characters are by design one-note, and the ones that aren't are just boring. By and large, the most effort in this film went to the ProductPlacement, which takes up huge chunks of the film and all but derails any semblance of a plot. While its very announcement was met with [[InternetBackdraft scorn across the Internet]], review sites don't treat it much better; its Metacritic page currently stands at 12 out of 100, its Rotten Tomatoes page currently stands at 9% (the second-lowest score thus far for an animated film, with an average rating of 2.7/10, which is lower than ''Norm of the North'''s 3.1/10) and its rating is 2.7 on Website/IMDb, at one point appearing on [[http://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom the site's Bottom 100 list]]. The sad part is, Creator/TJMiller left his role on ''Series/SiliconValley'' to star in this film. Would you believe that Creator/SonyPicturesAnimation president Christine Bell chose ''this'' picture as the beginning of an animation renaissance for the company? Watch Creator/ChrisStuckmann [[https://youtu.be/r2XO5i59wUg tear this movie a new one.]] WebVideo/AniMat also tears the film apart [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydvQB-4bBfQ here]].

%% "The Emoji Movie" has yet to be determined if it qualifies as this or not. Despite the terrible ratings and bashing from critics and viewers, the film is still fairly recent, so please don't add that example just yet.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvP9rDrEvAk This zero-budget adaptation]] of ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland''. The audio taken directly from a 1948 radio drama and the atrocious character designs (the Duchess, for example, is [[UnfortunateImplications an overweight African-American woman with large lips]] that looks like she just came from the MS paint engine) really say it all. They are the creatures that haunt the nightmares of Creator/TimBurton, VideoGame/{{American McGee|s Alice}}, David Hall, Creator/WaltDisney, and Creator/JanSvankmajer along with making Creator/LewisCarroll rotate frantically in his grave. Not to mention a rather blatant example of CriticalResearchFailure in the designs. The griffin looks like a dragon, even though griffins are ''not'' dragons. It's even worse for the poor Dodo and Eaglet (both of whom are DemotedToExtra in favor of the Lory, for some reason); the Dodo looks more like a pelican and the Eaglet barely resembles a bird at all. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvP9rDrEvAk The trailer]] is so bad that even a toddler would shake their head at it. Also the description would love to remind you that it's [[BlatantLies trying to please the children with its art style]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial and definitely not]] [[TheMockbuster trying to emulate any other movies]]. WebVideo/TheCartoonHero [[http://theherooftomorrow.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-cartoon-hero-vs-alice-in-wonderland.html happened upon this... thing in his marathon of reviews of works listed on]] this page, and claims it to be THE worst thing he has ever or will ever review.

* '''''WesternAnimation/TheMagicVoyage''''' was meant to be a retelling of how UsefulNotes/ChristopherColumbus discovered that the Earth was round. Unfortunately, this abomination had tacky animation, a boring plot, awful voice acting (Despite the cast having Dom Deluise as Christopher Columbus) and constant noise. That's not even mentioning the horrible inconsistencies such as Columbus thinking the world was square when he ''always'' thought it was round. The other main character, Pico (Voiced by Corey Feldman) is nothing more than an annoying little woodworm who is shoehorned into the story [[KidAppealCharacter to make this film appeal more to kids]]. The Nostalgia Critic reviewed it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kpk9pVrI_A here]], as did The Hardcore Kid [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nc1Gdr1HciE here]], and so did [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMZC4w8SGMU Animated Anarchy]].

** A [[http://www.rembrandtfilms.com/worst-cartoons-ever.htm DVD collection of the worst cartoons ever made]] featured not only two episodes of ''Bucky and Pepito'', but also two episodes of another of Singer's cartoons, '''''Paddy the Pelican'''''. Paddy's cartoons were especially lousy because they were basically '''pencil tests''' submitted as finished cartoons. The artwork was generally decent... and that's about all that can be said for them. The picture was often blurry, each shot was made up of one or two seconds of animation looped back and forth, and there was no background. Perhaps even worse was the voice acting, all done by Singer himself in a single take with no script. The finished product [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfvhnUU5lKA sounds (appropriately) like an insane man talking to himself for eight minutes.]] WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter also reviewed one of its episodes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0w6LUhl97s here]], where he calls it the worst cartoon of all time (in terms of production values).
