* '''''My Little Pony: Newborn Cuties''''' was a Flash-animated adaptation of Franchise/MyLittlePony and was the last series of the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 third generation]] of the franchise before the more famous [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fourth generation]] was introduced. While G3 specials and movies weren't the epitomy of childrens' entertainment, the animation was fairly competent, had [[EarWorm catchy songs]], proffessional voice actors gave the characters likable personalities, and wasn't above poking fun at its ditzy characters. By contrast, the animation has moments where voices come out with no proper idea of who's saying these lines and their movements, coupled with their '''ugly''' models, make the characters look [[UncannyValley bizarrely wrong]]. This was mainly because Hasbro put as little effort into the animation as possible to maximize their profits, which ''really'' shows because at no point does a single character's mouth ''ever move'' (at least in the second short; they do actually move in the first short, "So Many Different Ways to Play"). The reoccurring cast of quirky characters that its fans had grown attached too were completely thrown out to market the same handful of characters and toys. Not to mention every character was voiced by the same actress (a child, to boot, who clearly was not trained), a constant use of stock sound effects, every character was minimally animated with the same Flash asset model, and rehashed plotlines from earlier G3 specials. The writing's completely juvenile, insulting, and contains the [[UnfortunateImplications accidentally racist]] line "[[FantasticRacism everyone in Ponyville knows unicorns belong in Unicornia]]". This tarnished sales of the G3 line so badly Only a few shorts were made before the series was scrapped, resulting in the franchise getting rebooted as ''Friendship is Magic''. Watch [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter]] tear apart the second short, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgT4TonYAt4 "Over Two Rainbows",]] which is ''much worse'' than the already abysmal first short. Sometime later, he eviscerated [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICSUXsnuwAs "So Many Different Ways to Play"]].

* '''''London Mobile Buddies''''' is a {{Gorn}}-filled web cartoon about anthropomorphic cell phones that blatantly [[SerialNumbersFiledOff rips off]] ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. More specifically, it straight-up copies [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute characters]] and [[WholePlotReference episode plots]] with little to no change whatsoever. The show also rips off characters from ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'', ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', and a few other properties, because apparently plagiarizing one cartoon wasn't enough. And then there's the fact that the creator can't even rip off a character ''properly'', specifically in regards to Wikky (the show's Flippy analogue, who also copies Ronald [=McDonald=] and [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} the Joker]]); like Flippy, Wikky flips out and turns evil whenever he sees/hears something that seems violent or bloody... but it's ''never explained '''why''' he does this'', he just ''does'' for no reason. To top all of this off, the creator likes to draw his knock-off cell phone characters [[TakeThat mocking and killing Tree Friends (and characters from other cartoons)]] to make himself seem [[DarkerAndEdgier edgier]]. In general, it's just a pointless, copyright-infringing web show that copies characters, lacks originality, and has poor character writing. Maybe it would have been decent if the creator had come up with his own ideas-[[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot since the idea of having anthropomorphic cell phones as the main characters is interesting]]-but, instead, he just ''had'' to go and blatantly copy a (mostly) well-received and professionally made cartoon.

* '''''[[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/Warhammer40000''; 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".

* '''''WesternAnimation/{{Madballs}}: Gross Jokes''''' is a total disaster of a animated short. The humor is lame, seemingly taken from a children's joke book. None of the skits are interesting at all, without any semblance of a plot. The animation is poor, with ugly and uninspired character designs and visuals. None of the characters have any personality, with the possible exception of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Skullface]]. ''Tooncrap'' [[http://www.gameshowgarbage.com/tc027_madballsjokes.html takes a look at it here]], and considers it one of the worst animations he's reviewed, along with ''Bubsy''. WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIcPzQ4NEg4 also takes a look at it]]. This show also made his worst episodes list for 2013.

* 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.
