* ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles''. [[OffModel Good, Lennon, you look kinda cool!]] Ringo's the incompetent, bumbling ButtMonkey, and John sounds American. ''None'' of the voice actors are played by actual [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]], no matter what the credits may tell you. The cartoon ''feels'' wrong, and that is why it rules.

** One of the few actually-good parts of the series was the decent soundtrack. The credits theme starts to veer into so-bad-it's-good-ness by being [[EarWorm cheesy but catchy]], and even the opening title sequence did a pretty good job of establishing the series in a tasteful, even somewhat dignified manner. Then season 6 changed the intro to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aon3SdpYins this]]. Just... what were they thinking? Scary green goblin lips atonally "singing" a bizarre rap song which calls Captain Planet a "Mega Mac Daddy of Ecology" backed up with comedy wah-wah saxophones, one-key-at-a-time piano playing and what sounds like a morse code machine. It's ironic that this gloriously terrible intro was introduced late in the series when the show's animation improved.

** ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster''. A teenager enters the world of Creator/{{Nintendo}} games. Every character he meets - [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Simon Belmont]], VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}}, [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]] ([[IAmNotShazam named Kid Icarus]]), [[YouDontLookLikeYou is very unlike their in-game counterpart]] and has a terrible, exaggerated personality. Mega Man is short and green and says "Mega" in almost every sentence. Kid Icarus does the same by ending most of his sentences with the suffix "-icus". Simon Belmont wears goggles and acts like a vain ladies' man. And that's just the characters. The plots aren't particularly good either.

Neither is the voice acting, Mega Man has a ''really'' gravelly voice, and Princess Lana and Kevin sound bored most of the time.



** ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''. Whoooooo boy. Where to begin? This cartoon suffers from horrible, OffModel animation and terrible writing, thanks to a low budget and a five-days-a-week schedule that forced its creators to churn out more episodes rather than make better ones. This show lasted longer and had more episodes than its counterpart ''[[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM SatAM]]''. But it is great riffing material! And those faces are so expressive. They make great [[MemeticMutation reaction pics]]! There's a reason it's a FountainOfMemes. ("[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyM1UGD8sqM SnooPING AS usual I see...]]" Anyone?)

** Take one of the most violent and overly innuendo-filled fighting game series of all time, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids attempt to make it family friendly]], add a bespectacled tween magician for the young ones to associate with (''[[OlderThanTheyThink before]]'' ''Literature/HarryPotter'' took off!), and you get the American ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' [[WesternAnimation/{{Darkstalkers}} animated series]], one of the best examples of unintentional So Bad It's Good ever.

* ''WesternAnimation/WildGrinders'' has cliched plots that make no sense and pretty much should be called teen stereotype TV. It has gotten to the point to where everyone who watches it watches it to laugh at how bad it is.

* The two animated ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'' adaptations by 3D animation outfit [[http://www.littleshots3d.com/ Littleshots]]: the Chick Brand™ EasyEvangelism and dubious Biblical accuracy of "The Sissy" and the [[ShootTheShaggyDog Shaggy Dog-shooting]] "Tiny Shoes". The combination of already SBIG nature of the source material, CGI that makes ''WesternAnimation/BoysOfValor'' look like ''Disney/BigHero6'' and zero-budget sound and voice acting form a hypnotically bad whole. Both are available in their entirety on YouTube, in addition to reviews by The Bible Reloaded (available [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKBvnFzr7yk here]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6-V7DaM604 here]]).

* The WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat TV cartoons from the late 50's/early 60's. Between the [[LowBudget ultra low budget]] and [[LimitedAnimation extremely rushed animation]], [[{{Narm}} very slow and stilted voice acting]] and cheesy as Limburger writing that [[IdiotPlot frequently relies on contrived stupidity to get things going]], and stories that range from asinine to downright bizarre, this incarnation of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat is mainly liked by fans for either nostalgic value or for a cheap laugh.

They had around 6,000$ per episode, [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants had to crank out three new episodes per week and had mere hours to write the stories]], and it ''shows''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFonzAndTheHappyDaysGang'', with its [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs ridiculous concept]] (three characters from the sitcom ''Series/HappyDays'' travel in time with an anthropomorphic dog and a magical girl from the future in order to return to TheFifties), the show's tendency to [[CanonSue treat Fonzie as a god]], [[ClicheStorm it hitting every cliche]] in TheDarkAgeOfAnimation era Creator/HannaBarbera's book, and the animation being so limited that the characters are smiling when enemies attempt to kill them, makes it an entertaining show for all the wrong reasons. Oh, and it only exists because Hanna-Barbera couldn't get the rights to Series/DoctorWho. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer No, really.]]

** Although contrary to popular belief, the series did not come about
because Hanna-Barbera Hanna-Barbara couldn't get the rights to Series/DoctorWho. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer No, really.]][[http://www.cbr.com/tv-legends-revealed-was-doctor-who-replaced-in-a-cartoon-by-fonzie/ Doctor Who]]. Its' similarities are a happy accident.
