* '''''WesternAnimation/DorbeesMakingDecisions''''', a 1998 Christian kids' video that was meant to be the first in a series of ''Dorbees'' videos and reeks of desperately wanting [[FollowTheLeader to be the next]] ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales''. You know there's something wrong when the show's own theme song implies the characters are annoying and repulsive (''"Why don't they go away?"''). The whole video is filled with abysmal CGI animation (even for the late '90s) that somehow [[UpToEleven looks even worse]] than ''WebAnimation/JimmyNeutronHappyFamilyHappyHour'' (whose animation style is, mind you, ''[[StylisticSuck intentional]]''), ParentalBonus jokes that make no sense, [[FlatCharacter characters that are undeveloped]], idiotic pacing mostly resulting from [[MindScrew a framing device within]] ''[[MindScrew another]]'' [[MindScrew framing device]], the six-minute DisneyAcidSequence that is ''[[ShowWithinAShow Mr. Poe and Yogul]]'', and some of the most demented attempts at AnAesop, such as [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop implying that kids who skip school]] ''[[UnfortunateImplications deserve to die]]'' (though as the teacher stated that all sides of a polygon are 90 degrees [[note]]when it's actually the ''corners'', and all of the corners of a triangle total 180 degrees[[note]], the two characters who skip school have a ''very'' good reason to do so, as they are escaping a school using a curriculum full of [[CriticalResearchFailure extremely wrong information]]). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFHmVYD0jSg This]] is what Mr. Enter thought about the video. WebVideo/{{PhantomStrider}} thought this was the [[https://youtu.be/fCnJ4beN6Vo#t=05m26s second ugliest cartoon of all time]] behind ''WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda''.

* It's clear by now that the filmography of Rob Schneider isn't anything to write home about, but '''''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth''''' reaches a new low, even for him. The plot (if you can call it that) is Norm traveling to [[BigApplesauce some generic New York-wannabe]] in order to stop a developer from building a housing complex in the Arctic. The problems with this [[IdiotPlot story]] are obvious even to a toddler, but that's not even the start of it. The story is as [[ClicheStorm clichéd]] as it is unbelievable, the pop songs are shoehorned in, the jokes (almost all of which rely on ToiletHumor) are completely unfunny, the animation is bad enough to warrant the question "How did this film make it to theaters?" (it was actually originally scheduled to go DirectToDVD), the characters [[FlatCharacter have as much depth as a piece of paper]], and it hammers down an environmental message of [[GreenAesop "Save the Arctic"]] so hard that [[{{Anvilicious}} the hammer ends up breaking in two]]. All this combines to earn an embarrassing ''9%'' score on Website/RottenTomatoes, a score of 3.7/10 on IMDB and a 22% score overall on Metacritic. Worst of all, it can't even hide behind the justification that [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars "It's made for kids"]] because, according to some reviews, even ''they'' were bored by it. For those curious, here's WebVideo/AniMat [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcOFkFdyFog]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4zgaPeVVUY the]] WebVideo/BlackCriticGuy, Creator/ChrisStuckmann [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YA4rmv5gvyo]][[note]]who later named it his third worst film of 2016, behind ''Film/TheDisappointmentsRoom'' (which is on [[Horrible/LiveActionFilms the live-action page) and ''Film/NineLives2016''[[/note]], WebOriginal/DoubleToasted [[https://youtu.be/igsRlhnK1VY]], [[https://youtu.be/9MFLLVdrpJQ Jamboreeqi]], [[https://youtu.be/ckUI5E7bUaE Joey Tedesco]], [[https://youtu.be/6lYZ3hMljFM LewToons]], and WebVideo/MidnightScreenings [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGyIaf7r3wU]] to enlighten you. %%% Only reviews released when the film came out in theatres go up here.

* '''''WesternAnimation/LeoTheLion''''' is a 2013 CGI Italian film that was distributed in America by Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany and put on Creator/{{Netflix}}, and quickly gained infamy due to just how big of a colossal mess it was. The story involves a vegetarian lion named Leo as he sets out to escort a gaggle of young animals to a hidden paradise called "the heart of the jungle". There are a buttload of problems with how nearly everything is executed, however. The character designs are amateur at best and [[UncannyValley completely hideous]] at worst [[note]](the eponymous character himself has a malnourished appearance that, while befitting his character, is very unappealing)[[/note]]. The editing is sloppy, and some scenes are slowed down with little rhyme or reason. The story itself is a RandomEventsPlot of the highest order, featuring many plot elements that either amount to little or are just outright ''bizarre'', and has many moments and characters that are derivative of, if not borderline plagiarizing, those of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' [[note]] For a some examples, the villain song features a moment where the BigBad is overlooking [[PuttingOnTheReich suspiciously marching elephants]] in a scene that looks almost indistinguishable from a certain scene in "Be Prepared", there are hyenas that are voiced by someone doing a very bad Cheech Marin impression, and a scene where Leo's OlderSidekick appears to have died and Leo runs around panicking and crying for help in a scene that seems to be attempting to will itself into being like Mufasa's death scene.[[/note]]. The characters are either [[FlatCharacter bland]], [[TheScrappy obnoxious]], [[TheLoad useless]], or some combination of the three. The attempts at humor all fall flat, and many moments in the plot are just off-putting. The few songs the movie has are dull with uninspired lyrics and [[PainfulRhyme unnatural rhyming]]. The acting (the Netflix English dub of which includes familiar names such as Creator/DebiDerryberry and Creator/MatthewMercer) is either wooden or [[MostAnnoyingSound ear-shattering]], and the dialogue doesn't seem it's even trying to be clever. One of the most infamous scenes revolves around the heroes subduing a terrified mother zebra and convincing her into providing milk for their young, and the way it's executer is so horribly botched that it almost plays out like a ''rape'' scene. At the end, Leo marries a female elephant who gives birth to hybrid babies that will haunt your nightmares for millennia. The movie was quickly torn down by those who bothered to review it, getting an abysmal 1.7 on IMDB and a [[https://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/leo-the-lion 1/5]] on Common Sense Media.

*** As if that weren't bad enough, '''Wabuu''', the CaptainErsatz of the raccoon Meeko from the Disney film, got his own spinoff film loosely based on ''Disney/TheJungleBook''. It has Dingo's second worst English dub after ''Aladin'', and like ''Animal Soccer World'', said dub has an annoying background music track looping nonstop, this time being CreepyCircusMusic.

The story involves a vegetarian lion named Leo as he sets out to escort a gaggle of young animals to a hidden paradise called "the heart of the jungle". There are a buttload of problems with how nearly everything is executed, however. The character designs are amateur at best and [[UncannyValley completely hideous]] at worst [[note]](the eponymous character himself has a malnourished appearance that, while befitting his character, is very unappealing)[[/note]]. The editing is sloppy, and some scenes are slowed down with little rhyme or reason. The story itself is a RandomEventsPlot of the highest order, featuring many plot elements that either amount to little or are just outright ''bizarre'', and has many moments and characters that are derivative of, if not borderline plagiarizing, those of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' [[note]] For a some examples, the villain song features a moment where the BigBad is overlooking [[PuttingOnTheReich suspiciously marching elephants]] in a scene that looks almost indistinguishable from a certain scene in "Be Prepared", there are hyenas that are voiced by someone doing a very bad Cheech Marin (aka. Benzi) impression, and a scene where Leo's OlderSidekick appears to have died and Leo runs around panicking and crying for help in a scene that seems to be attempting to will itself into being like Mufasa's death scene.[[/note]]. The characters are either [[FlatCharacter bland]], [[TheScrappy obnoxious]], [[TheLoad useless]], or some combination of the three. The attempts at humor all fall flat, and many moments in the plot are just off-putting. The few songs the movie has are dull with uninspired lyrics and [[PainfulRhyme unnatural rhyming]]. The acting (the Netflix English dub of which includes familiar names such as Creator/DebiDerryberry and Creator/MatthewMercer) is either wooden or [[MostAnnoyingSound ear-shattering]], and the dialogue doesn't seem it's even trying to be clever.

clever. One of the most infamous scenes revolves around the heroes subduing a terrified mother zebra and convincing her into providing milk for their young, and the way it's executer is so horribly botched that it almost plays out like a ''rape'' scene. At the end, Leo marries a female elephant who gives birth to hybrid babies that will haunt your nightmares for millennia.
** Lacking little to no redeeming factors, the
millennia. The movie was quickly torn down by those who bothered to review it, getting an abysmal 1.7 on IMDB and a [[https://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/leo-the-lion 1/5]] on Common Sense Media. Brian Feldman of ''New York Magazine'' rips the movie to shreds [[http://nymag.com/selectall/2016/08/the-nightmare-world-of-leo-the-lion-netflixs-worst-movie.html here]]. Saberspark likewise [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fmxmvFLPAE had no kind words for it]], explaining why it's considered the worst animated film on Netflix.

** Furthermore, the film made [[MedalOfDishonor history by becoming the first ever animated film]] [[UsefulNotes/GoldenRaspberryAward to be nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Screenplay.]] [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xwe1to_joshua-and-the-promised-land-wmv_shortfilms?start=694#.UW1udCtvtQc This]] animated adaptation of the story of Joshua, Moses' apprentice, titled '''''Joshua and the Promised Land'''''. The character designs, which are ''supposed'' to be bipedal lions, are stiff and uninspired (and includes a [[AnimalGenderBender female lion with a mane]]), the animation looks like it was done by a sixth grader using Autodesk Maya for the first time (faces hardly show good expression, mouth movements are nonexistent, it's impossible to tell what various objects are at times due to horrid texturing, etc.), and the voices sound bored and sometimes fail to grasp the concept of audio levels (the kid who played the titular Joshua sometimes [[NoIndoorVoice shouts his lines]] to the point of distortion). And then there's the story itself, which has its own slew of problems, including one of the most annoying examples of MrExposition ever put to film. Creator/{{Voltalia}} gives her two cents about this abomination [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XRvQs38Hc8 here]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAxnq9m0Fe8&ab_channel=CuteFuzzyWeasel CuteFuzzyWeasel destroyed it here]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRu1LnYGPTI Kyle Norty gave his take on it here]] and even LetsPlay/{{Critikal}}, who's known for doing Let's Plays, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zRyubvOzio had a few things]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae9bFmg56kk to say about it.]] The creator of the film, Jim Lion, admits that it was horrible and said that the criticisms given to the film are absolutely true, though he states he does not regret making it as it allowed him to practice his animation skills.
