** ''WesternAnimation/SpaceChimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back''. Sure, ''Space Chimps'' was already a poor-quality AllCGICartoon movie, but this straight to DVD sequel is even worse. [[OffModel Horrid animation]], unfunny cliché jokes, and a near-nonexistent plot make this film atrocious. Even the great talents of Creator/PatrickWarburton, Creator/JohnDiMaggio, Creator/LauraBailey and Creator/TomKenny couldn't save this flick. To make it clear how terrible this movie is, Website/RottenTomatoes gave it a 0% rating and its Website/IMDb score is 2.7. It was also the CreatorKiller of Vanguard Animation, which seems to have dissolved after releasing only four poorly received duds, and over ''9 films'' that they were planning on making instead were cancelled forever until ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2097333/ one of them]] was finally released in Poland in 2015''. WebVideo/MediaHunter [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hajIk72J7zw took a crack at reviewing this movie]], and regrets doing so.

** In wake of the successes of the [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} first two]] [[WesternAnimation/Shrek2 Shrek films]] and WesternAnimation/{{Hoodwinked}}, [[FollowtheLeader they decided to make their own Fantasy Parody]], ''WesternAnimation/HappilyNeverAfter''.

** TheSixties: Whether the "Daffy vs. Speedy" series of cartoons (which pits Speedy Gonzales against a WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck who is reduced to a grouchy humorless foil) and "The Larriva Eleven" (a series of shoestring budget [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Wile E. Coyote & Road Runner]] cartoons made by former Creator/WarnerBros animator Rudy Larriva) ''completely'' fall under this trope is debatable. However, almost everybody unanimously agrees that the final Daffy and Speedy cartoon, 1968's "See Ya Later, Gladiator", is horrible beyond belief. The cartoon is riddled with half-assed animation (even going so far as to reuse the ''exact same animation sequence twice'' for Daffy looking out of a window, [[TheyJustDidntCare even though he was in a completely different room both times]]), bad music, lame and/or borderline non-existent gags, etc. WebVideo/{{PhantomStrider}} had a [[http://youtu.be/kb37Zx7onDw few words to say about this episode]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'', a short-lived Creator/{{Fox}} animated series co-created by and starring Creator/JonahHill as the voice of the title character Allen Gregory De Longpre, a nerdy, pretentious 7-year-old who's forced to attend elementary school in the face of the recession when his gay parents' finances are hit hard, principally those of his CEO father Richard. Allen has a very warped view of the world and can't socialize with kids around his age. What makes the series so bad, you ask? Dull and unfunny jokes (almost ''all'' of them [[DudeNotFunny tasteless and unfunny]], including jokes about AIDS and ''date rape''), bland animation ([[UncannyValley with downright HIDEOUS character designs]]), some of the most off-putting homophobia in all of television (so horribly written it's honestly impossible to tell if it was supposed to be satirical or not), and unlikable characters who are some combination of idiots, whiny {{Butt Monkey}}s, and/or complete {{jerkass}}es. The {{Jerkass}} characters from other FOX shows are at least [[ComedicSociopathy funny with]] [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist their asshole-ism]] most of the time. Plus, there's the ongoing subplot involving [[PrecociousCrush Allen's crush on his 70-year-old principal]], played out in the most ''[[{{Squick}} disturbingly sexual]]'' [[BrainBleach way]] possible (you will never hear "[[Music/PhilCollins In the]] [[IsntItIronic Air Tonight]]" the same way ever again). Also, the gay parents as main characters--Richard's just as selfish and [[{{Manchild}} childish]] as his son, and Jeremy (one of the few decent characters aside from his adopted daughter Julie, although they're both boring and forgettable) was a straight man with a wife and children who was essentially bullied and raped by Richard into marrying him. UnfortunateImplications, indeed. The pilot received mostly negative reviews, and the show itself was canned after only 7 episodes in late 2011/early 2012. WebVideo/TVTrash [[http://rowdyc.com/tv-trash-allen-gregory eviscerated it by popular demand]], believing it to be ''the'' worst show he's ever reviewed (until he reviewed ''WesternAnimation/{{Brickleberry}}'' and then ''[[WesternAnimation/MrPicklesGoodBoy Mr. Pickles]]'', that is). WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter also [[http://m.220.ro/documentare/Animated-Atrocities-19-1-Night-In-Gottlieb-Allen-Gregory/wncG83XuUe/ tore into the show,]] and declared it in 2013 to be the worst thing he reviewed… until he saw, among other things, ''Mr. Pickles'' and ''WesternAnimation/WhereTheDeadGoToDie'' – since 2014, he will preface certain Animated Atrocities by declaring them to be "worse than ''Allen Gregory''." Phantomstrider put that show on #2 on his [[http://youtu.be/kmIfsZruqLs Top 10 Worst Modern Cartoons of All Time]], second only to [[{{Flanderization}} modern]] [[SeasonalRot episodes of]] WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy. [[OldShame It's telling]] that Fox hated "Allen Gregory" so much that they pulled it from any and all websites that were offering the episodes for sale.

* ''My Little Pony: Newborn Cuties'' was a Flash-animated adaptation of Franchise/MyLittlePony and was the last series of the slightly less-dreadful [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 third generation]] of the franchise before the vastly-superior [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fourth generation]] was introduced. 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''. Not to mention every character was voiced by the same actress (a child, to boot, who clearly was not trained), constantly used stock sound effects, used the same Flash asset for each character that was minimally moved, and rehashed plotlines from earlier in G3. The writing's completely juvenile, insulting, and contains the [[UnfortunateImplications accidentally racist]] line "[[FantasticRacism everyone in Ponyville knows unicorns belong in]] [[FantasticGhetto Unicornia]]". Only a couple of shorts were made before the series was abandoned before the entire franchise was 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.

Also, the gay parents as main characters--Richard's just as selfish and [[{{Manchild}} childish]] as his son, and Jeremy (one of the few decent characters aside from his adopted daughter Julie, although they're both boring and forgettable) was a straight man with a wife and children who was essentially bullied and raped by Richard into marrying him. UnfortunateImplications, indeed. The pilot received mostly negative reviews, and the show itself was canned after only 7 episodes in late 2011/early 2012. WebVideo/TVTrash [[http://rowdyc.com/tv-trash-allen-gregory eviscerated it by popular demand]], believing it to be ''the'' worst show he's ever reviewed (until he reviewed ''WesternAnimation/{{Brickleberry}}'' and then ''[[WesternAnimation/MrPicklesGoodBoy Mr. Pickles]]'', that is). WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter also [[http://m.220.ro/documentare/Animated-Atrocities-19-1-Night-In-Gottlieb-Allen-Gregory/wncG83XuUe/ tore into the show,]] and declared it in 2013 to be the worst thing he reviewed… until he saw, among other things, ''Mr. Pickles'' and ''WesternAnimation/WhereTheDeadGoToDie'' – since 2014, he will preface certain Animated Atrocities by declaring them to be "worse than ''Allen Gregory''." Phantomstrider put that show on #2 on his [[http://youtu.be/kmIfsZruqLs Top 10 Worst Modern Cartoons of All Time]], second only to [[{{Flanderization}} modern]] [[SeasonalRot episodes of]] WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy. [[OldShame It's telling]] that Fox hated "Allen Gregory" so much that they pulled it from any and all websites that were offering the episodes for sale.
