* '''''WesternAnimation/MegaBabies''''' was a cartoon made by Christian and Yvon Tremblay (of ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'' fame) that was about a trio of superpowered infants who fought crime with assistance from their nurse. The jarring character designs, and grating, terrible theme song (an annoying, warped version of "Rock-a-bye Baby") aside, to say that this cartoon is heavy on gross-out humor is a planet-sized understatement. A prime example of how absolutely repulsive this show is: one of the early episodes starts with a shot of the babies sleeping... which wouldn't be so bad if one of the babies didn't have a stringy glob of snot shooting out of its nose with each snore. Holy. Shit. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKX5V_FvHQ0 Watch it here]], ''but only if you have a [[NauseaFuel stomach of titanium]]''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUPXqdigB5U In his list of "Top 10 Ugliest Cartoons",]] WebVideo/RebelTaxi said that the show was so ugly that it was perfect for [[ScareEmStraight scaring teens from having sex]] - "It's not an accurate representation of childbirth or can it change their minds, but it should prolong the inevitable." Watch WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter [[DespairEventHorizon nearly break apart]] from this abomination [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYoSYe9u3SM here.]] It also really says something when Creator/{{Voltalia}} compares it ''unfavorably'' to the ''Film/GarbagePailKids'' movie!

* '''''WebAnimation/TheTransformersCombinerWars''''', a 2016 webseries co-produced by {{Machinima}} and Creator/{{Hasbro}}. Initially billed as a more mature work for hardcore fans, it was almost instantly savaged by fans due to poor quality CGI reminiscent of ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'' [[note]]Itself covered on the Horrible.{{Anime}} page[[/note]], a low framerate that makes actions highly janky, an unclear and barebones narrative, a large amount of {{Padding}} despite the full miniseries only clocking in at 40 minutes, little screentime devoted to the characters the series was created to advertise, terrible characterization (with [[NiceGirl Windblade]] being depicted as a murderous psychopath for no apparent reason) and, most infamously, the fact that the webseries was released well after the toyline is was made to promote had left retail. When Wiki/TFWikiDotNet says ''Energon'' [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Transformers:_Combiner_Wars_(cartoon) looks good by comparison]], you know something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.

* After the Sputnik launch, there seemed to be a push for "educational" TV cartoons to raise kids' intellects, and they were generally awful at the time. One, '''''The Big World of Little Adam''''', was nothing but a still shot of two kids' heads behind a book, conveniently covering the mouths to avoid animating speech - the only movement was their pupils darting back and forth. This "action" framed montages of still pictures of the subject at hand. On a whole other level of awful, one installment dealing with missiles praised the V-1 and V-2 rockets ([[Music/TomLehrer Who cares where they come down?]]). However, the animated segments and slideshows weren't the only thing present: TheOtherWiki claims the producer, Fred Ladd, got a hold of a bunch of NASA documentaries and, with the space race of the 50s and 60s running about in kids' minds, created the segments as framing devices for said documentaries.

* '''''[[http://learnourhistory.com/ Time Travel Academy]]''''' (a.k.a. ''Learn Our History''), a series of educational CGI cartoons produced by former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to educate kids on the "history that schools are afraid to tell". Let's put it this way; you know you've got a real stinker on your hands when you can't even make the ''trailers'' look good. Its flaws include as follows: amateurish CGI work (it looks like it was done half-heartily on Daz Studio and [[CelShading cel-shaded]] to cover up the fact), [[FlatCharacter cardboard cut-out characters]] coupled with wooden dialogue and completely phoned in voice acting, moments of CriticalResearchFailure (i.e., the scene in the UsefulNotes/WorldWarII trailer where a modern-day black girl appears, praising Rosie the Riveter, inexcusably ignorant of the rampant racism that went on during the time), not to mention its shameless abuse of HollywoodHistory, featuring a woefully dishonest [[TheThemeParkVersion Theme Park version]] of the 1970s-80s, blatant plagiarism (early copies of one episode had a character wearing a helmet from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''; fortunately for them, this was [[AuthorsSavingThrow removed from later copies]]); and to top it all off, a political BiasSteamroller despite the show's claim to "teach history without bias".

* '''''Film/{{Spaceballs}}: The Animated Series''''' has been given the FanNickname ''The Soich for More Money'' from fans of the original movie.[[note]]For those who haven't seen ''Spaceballs'', the nickname references a scene in which the movie's Yoda equivalent, Yogurt, teases a second movie with that subtitle.[[/note]] The designs of the characters range from okay to godawful. Most notably was making Dark Helmet, originally played by 5'1" Creator/RickMoranis, a dwarf. The joke may have been about Helmet's large, well, helmet, but there was no reason to make him look like a bobblehead with or without it. The animation accompanying those modes don't fare any better. In an annoyingly lazy move, it rehashes jokes from the movie. Hell, the first two episodes are basically a remake of the movie. The rest of the series is a ShallowParody of other movies, such as ''Film/TheTerminator'', ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', and even non-Sci-Fi films like ''Film/HarryPotter''. That is not only comparable to a SeltzerAndFriedberg movie, but it renders the title of the show and the movie it was based on redundant.

* '''''WesternAnimation/DorbeesMakingDecisions''''', a 1998 Christian kids' video that was meant to be the first in a series of ''Dorbees'' videos and reeks of [[FollowTheLeader desperately wanting 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) [[UpToEleven that somehow 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]]''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFHmVYD0jSg This]] is what Mr. Enter thought about the video.

* '''''Pixel Pinkie''''' is often described as the UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}n equivalent of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', except far, far blander and generic - extra emphasis on that. A ClicheStorm of the highest order, the premise has been done before and far better in shows such as ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', the story-lines are utterly by-the-books, [[FlatCharacter the characters are zero-dimensional plastic cut-outs of normally well-done character types]], the animation is cheaper-looking than most WebAnimation projects, and all the seemingly 5th-grade age kids sound like grown-ups, almost as if only one person voiced all of them. [[SmallNameBigEgo Its creators]] are also notoriously sore when it comes to criticism, having gotten into several {{Flame War}}s with fans of [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter]], whom they claimed was in no position to judge [[InsaneTrollLogic because he was American]], as well trying to false-flag [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4D212OldhQ his review]] several times under [[SockPuppet alternate names]].
* Creator/{{NBC}}'s Saturday-morning block was chock full of stinkers by the early 90's, but it had a few good shows (like ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' and ''Series/SavedByTheBell'').

It features superstar players UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan, [[UsefulNotes/{{N|ationalHockeyLeague}}HL Wayne Gretzky]], and [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} Bo]] [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague Jackson]] helping kids around the world and fighting criminals who do what they do [[ForTheEvulz just because they can do it]]. What makes it really awful is that it attempts to promote diversity by the various countries and kids they visit, but that's all cancelled out by ruthless stereotyping.

WebVideo/{{PhantomStrider}} thought this was the [[https://youtu.be/fCnJ4beN6Vo second ugliest cartoon of all time]] behind WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda.
