Yes I know your pain Picard.. i really do.

I did watch a Dvd with “Scooby doo meets Batman”. I was facepalming al the time while watching it. Both villains and heroes were dumber than a sack with dirty.
Joker and Penguin… sad and not so murderous. just having dumb plans and costumes that just doesn't fit to their characters.
the dialog did make my inner child to cry like there were no tomorrow.
Yes. I know. it is a children show and i did find out why i did stop to watch it when i was a kid. i did hate it and now i know why. *facepalm about myself*
It was bad.. and sadly it is not a “it is so bad that it is good”-thing.

Did you ever facepalm about a cartoon, movie or tv serie because it was so bad that it made your inner kid to cry?[

I have that cartoon…

…I loved it…

-_-…


But I loved it because it's so stupid its great (to me).


But as to other things I highly advise you all not to have little brothers who act all cool and then watch the new Disney shows. They're so badly written that it's just not funny. I mean if you thought That's So Raven and Even Stevens were stupid (but had their moments…), this shit is just not right.

It's like they're writing My Wife and Kids except it is Disney so no one's black.

Well actually, ONE is black. But only and ever one.

Even worse, never ever ever watch cartoon network during the day - Johnny Test? Almost Naked Animals? Hero 108? FUCKING GARFIELD? (the last one is simply the worst of all of them)

…figures I know all the children's shows…

Step Brothers.
Very bad… Pity because the star actors Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, are usually so fantastic, at least John C. Reilly is, but Will's comedies although stupid are at least very entertaining.
The film was actually jam-packed with big stars in all the roles, but that didn't stop it from being a turd- it never does. :(

Is the Scooby Doo cartoon in the orignal post the old one? Like, the 70's one where there's a house that turns upside down?

If so, that's a sort of awfulness that I can still enjoy. There are some TV shows where you have to turn your brain off to enjoy it, and even forgive certain problems because they're so old.

Scooby Doo has a history that would make you facepalm. They tried every trick in the book to keep people watching. Adding Scrappy Doo, Flim-flam, Scooby's cousin, ditching Fred Daphne and Velma, guest stars, musical numbers, laugh tracks, and Don Knotts. The show has even been reborn several times.

But to be honest, I like its newest incarnation, Mystery Inc. It's aimed at the college crowd, has a better sense of style, and is a little bit self-aware.

I Am The 1337 Master
Johnny Test?

Johnny Test might be the worst cartoon on television today. I wish there was some way for me to punish the people who created it, and also punish the people at Cartoon Network for saving it from death on the WB network.

I facepalm every day and it's never because of anything I see on TV. From years of real life experience I know that there really are people that dumb.

Try to make anything idiot-proof and they will invent a better idiot.

So TV shows and movies about morons doing braindead things is only a dim reflection of some of the really stupid shit I've seen.

If fact seeing it on TV is entertaining because there I am free to laugh because I'm not the stupid fuck who has to go fix it.

Yes. it is from 70s. I simply can't turn off my brain. it refuses that in this case. :(

I think the worst thing I've ever seen was an old episode of the Herculoids. For some reasont he production crew decided to be extra lazy with this episode and threw in a generic laugh track. The problem is that the laugh track would chime in randomly with no rhyme or reason behind it. Chase scene, suddenly out of the blue, laughing. Exposition? One again, laugh track. And it was always the same one. For a while I started thinking they were trying to use it as some sort of sound effect, but even that made no sense. It was only made worse by the horrible writing and dialog that was typical of HB cartoons of the time. The whole thing just seemed like an homage to how crap the HB production staff and editors could be back in the day.

They were indeed. -_-
Having grown up with old Warner Brothers cartoons (used to be played non-stop here in Aus), Tom and Jerry, Heckle and Jeckle, Mighty-Mouse, Felix etc and then going to Hanna Barbera cartoons was a bit of a shock- so many repetitive animation loops used over and over and over and the colours degraded so awfully over time.

To be fair, Cartoon Network also brought us Justice League and The Batman. At least that's where they were shown here in the UK. And, whilst not my favourite cartoon by a long shot, even Ben 10: Alien Force has its moments. Plus, Star Wars: The Clone Wars - admittedly not original to CN but currently being shown there. A future classic!

In the Face Palm category, though, I'd have to include some (okay, a lot!) of the feature-length Disney cartoons made after Walt's death and prior to the tie-up with Pixar. The Fox and the Hound? What were they thinking? Robin Hood? Mildly amusing for anyone too young to recognise it as a rehash of everything they'd already done in the Jungle Book. Terrible, terrible times!

Oh, and the Fantastic Four cartoon. It makes the two live action movies look like masterpieces!

Ah, that was all right for me then :)
I've never seen Disney's Jungle Book so Kipling wasn't even ruined for me and neither was Disney's Robin Hood either as it turns out. Haha! Thanks for the tip on that!

But honestly, as a kid I loved The Jungle Book when I read it and I'm really glad that even now thinking of Balu, Kaa and Sheer Khan doesn't conjure up stupid singing animals for me. -Though I was happy to see the old live action version with Sabu, which is STILL one of my all time fave films.

I was specifically stating its day shows. The ones for preteens and eight year olds. They're absolutely awful.

I still don't like their Star Wars like others do.

Oh, and the Fantastic Four cartoon. It makes the two live action movies look like masterpieces!

Which one? There were four different TV series. One by Hanna Barbera in the late 60's. One done by DePatie-Freleng in the 70's. A 90's version that was probably closest to the comics, and the one done a few years back with that anime style on Cartoon Network.

The fox and the hound is okay, I picked up the rescuers for the kids the other day. that was bad.

I just like how you can easily pick out which characters Don Bluth worked on in Rescuers and Robin Hood. Rescuers Down Under may have been more colorful, but it wasn't as well animated.

But honestly, as a kid I loved The Jungle Book when I read it and I'm really glad that even now thinking of Balu, Kaa and Sheer Khan doesn't conjure up stupid singing animals for me. -Though I was happy to see the old live action version with Sabu, which is STILL one of my all time fave films.

Chuck Jones did some adaptations based on stories from the Jungle Books. Mowgli's Brothers was among them, which is pretty much the only part of the story the Disney movie draws from. The Jones version is probably the closest adaptation to the book, though.

The recent anime styled one. Hate it, hate it, hate it!

Chowder's not that bad, it's just that every episode can basically be summed up as “Hey, this is just like the time on ____ where this exact same thing happened, with the exact same ending.”

Oh well, I guess this is just a thread about awful cartoo–
Rescuers?

Rescuers is bad?
Oh hells no, you did not just say that.
You instantly lose all credibility.

But eh not all cartoons are that bad nowadays. Whenever I go to my friends house he's always watching cartoons. Or scrubs.
Regular Show, Adventure Time, Flapjack (To a lesser extent) are all pretty decent.

You want an awful cartoon, try…………………….

………………..

Fuck you bronies, I don't even give a shit.

You do realize that saying that anywhere on the internet is like an open invitation for a virtual lynching, right? It's only the next biggest thing online after cats and porn.

Unless it's about the original cartoon. That was just a stupid 80's toy thing… like 98% of the rest of the American 80s cartoons -_-

BTW I remember a decent cartoon about Riki-tiki-tavi (from Kipling's Jugle book stories), but I always thought that was British?


As for Fantastic Four- the older cartoons were pure shiz… But then it's not like the animators had much to work with, Those characters even in their original form were pretty uninspired and the did fly around in a bathtub that they called a “car”.

Chuck Jones produced Rikki-tikki-tavi in 1975 with Orson Welles narrating and supplying some of the voices. There was a Russian cartoon previous to that I've also seen.

As far as the most awful TV series with Marvel Super Heroes that would be series The Marvel Super Heroes series from 1966 where the limited animation was xerography and tracings of the original comics. But at least it featured original Silver Age Art. It made the later HB xerography look like Akira.

Credibility is for douches. Only watched about a third of it as it bored the kids to tears. I was busy making comics but it didn't impress me from what I saw.

FF from 60s? the one with herbie and no human torch at all?
If it is that one. then you got my sympathy. Well the 90 ones.. were horrible bad. Dr. Doom did smile with his mask when Sue secuded him.(the invisible woman). and again Sue was cast to the weakest member. when in comics she is pretty much the most powerful of the four. Oh well. people behind the cartoon must have watch the 60s one in a weed fog and decided to build it from there.
